'Pride' Days Are America's Version of North Korea's Thought Control!

Dennis Prager on

This past Saturday night, the New York Rangers National Hockey League (NHL) team did something almost unbelievable. Though scheduled to wear LGBTQ "Pride" jerseys during pregame warmups, not one member of the team did so.

Another recent example of defying LGBTQ+ "Pride" jersey demands in the NHL -- which is run by people who are as governed by cowardice as those who run Major League Baseball, the National Football League and the National Basketball Association -- was a player for the Philadelphia Flyers, Ivan Provorov, who refused to wear a "Pride" jersey 10 days earlier.

As reported by Fox News:

"Provorov refused to participate in pregame warmups where players wore Pride-themed jerseys and wielded hockey sticks wrapped in rainbow Pride tape. 'I respect everyone,' he told reporters after they won the actual game against the Anaheim Ducks. 'I respect everybody's choices. My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion.'"

Provorov is Russian Orthodox. (Question: has one Protestant or Catholic NHL player refused to wear a "Pride" jersey?)

Perhaps the New York Rangers organization was aware of the amount of support Provorov received: "Multiple news outlets including the Post Millennial, OutKick and Washington Examiner have since reported that the Philadelphia Flyers Provorov jerseys have been selling out in multiple stores online."


The Flyers and, apparently, the Rangers learned the truth about their fans: the vast majority of them -- and presumably of Americans and Canadians in general -- do not wish to discriminate against those who are LGBTQ+ but they do not want their teams to go on record as expressing "Pride" in those who are LGBTQ+.

This mirrors society at large. The vast majority of Americans believe in tolerance of LGBTQ+ individuals but not in organizations expressing pride in them.

Why is this?

Because "Pride" is not about tolerance. "Pride" is totalitarian.
