Episode 724 – It’s That Time? Again?

It’s Pride Month…again. So it is time for companies to go woke. But is this crap going to work anymore?



It looks like I need to find a new baseball team to root for.

I have been a Dodger fan all my life. My first game was a Dodger game against the San Diego Padres. It looks like I will need to find a new time if this story is true.

According to the Daily Wire:

The Los Angeles Dodgers plan to give a “Community Hero Award” to a drag queen group that mocks Catholics next month.

The Dodgers will present the award to the Los Angeles chapter of the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” an organization of men who dress in drag queen versions of Catholic religious habits that claims to have a “ministry,” according to its website.

Members of the group go by names like Sister T’aint A Virgin, Sister Risqué of the Sissytine Chapel, and Sister Edith Myflesh. The group also mocks the process of becoming a Catholic nun by having members become a postulant, then a novice, and finally a fully professed “sister” with a black veil. One of the group’s founders originally used old habits used by real Catholic nuns.

“Go forth and sin some more!” is the group’s slogan.

“We are more than just another community service organization: we are Sisters. As with our more traditional counterparts, nearly all of us felt a genuine calling to do this work. There is room for a lot of fun in the Order, but we take our callings and our vows very seriously,” the group’s website says.

This is grotesque! After this podcast, I will be writing an E-mail and calling the Dodgers for a comment. I especially want to know what they think Vin Scully and Tommy Lasorda would say considering they were devout Catholics. I’m pretty sure Sandy Kofax, a devout Jew, might not be

How bad and anti-Catholic is this group? The article continues:

Back in 2007, members of the drag group tricked the archbishop of San Francisco into giving them the Eucharist so they could defile it.

On Easter this year, the group put on a “Jesus and Mary-themed striptease” that involved a performer “writhing upside down on a large wooden cross,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported. They also had shirtless men compete to be crowned the “hunkiest” Jesus.

“These are just a few examples of the SPI’s vile and diabolical actions which go far beyond parody or satire – they are blasphemous and deeply offensive to Christians everywhere,” CatholicVote wrote in their letter.

“All Americans, especially Catholics, should be deeply concerned that the Dodgers feel comfortable platforming such a grotesque and blatantly anti-Catholic hate group at a time when Catholic Churches across our nation are already suffering a wave of violent attacks instigated by pro-abortion radicals,” said CatholicVote President Brian Burch in a statement.

This is when one needs to take a stand. I love baseball and love the Dodgers, but this is abhorrent. I don’t know if I could ever support a team that supports shit like this. Baseball has always been about America. Maybe not so much anymore.



Wasn’t Putting a Fat Chick on the Cover Bad Enough?

Miller Lite wasn’t the only company trying to go woke.

According to the Daily Wire:

Transgender-identified model Kim Petras will be on the cover of Sports Illustrated this year, the outlet announced Monday.

The 30-year-old singer and model will be the second trans-identified model to be featured on a cover. The first, Leyna Bloom, modeled for SI in 2021.

“It’s super exciting to have my Sports Illustrated cover and album announcement happening at the same time! Yu Tsai and the whole team at Sports Illustrated made me feel really comfortable and like I belonged there. I had the best time and, honestly, it was a huge confidence boost,” Petras told People in an interview. 

The announcement happens just in time for Pride Month. Another Pride month. What is this? The eighth Pride Month of the year.

But that wasn’t all they did.

According to another article by the Daily Wire:

Martha Stewart just became the oldest model in the history of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue after the magazine released one of four covers for the 2023 edition.

The 81-year-old TV personality/businesswoman/author is shown wearing a white swimsuit with a gold wrap.

“Usually I’m motivated by pay. But this time I was motivated by showing people that a woman my age could still look good, feel good, be good,” Stewart said. “I thought that this is kind of historic and that I better look really good.”

“That’s one of my mottos, when you’re through changing, you’re through,” she added. “Change is very good. Evolution is very good, just trying new things.”

That’s what men want to see. A man who tore off his dick and an 81-year old woman. Time to stop reading Sports Illustrated.



Go For This

According to Newsweek:

A recently released range of clothing by Target for LGBTQ+ Pride Month—which takes place every June—has provoked outrage on social media, with calls for the retailer to receive “the Bud Light treatment.”

The beer brand has been embroiled in controversy since the beginning of April, after it sent a commemorative can to transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney to celebrate her first year of transitioning to a woman. The promotional move sparked calls for a boycott, and industry data shows sales of Bud Light declined more than 17 percent across the month.

Several brands have been the target of condemnation from conservatives over marketing advocating for the LGBTQ+ community. While experts have said such campaigns provide an opportunity for brands to appeal to consumers in new markets, critics have accused companies of alienating their traditional customer base.

The controversies sit at the heart of the culture wars, and speak to a broader debate around the acceptance of LGBTQ+ individuals in public life.

A video of the new Target range, posted on Wednesday, which has since received more than 1.3 million views, shows a T-shirt with the slogan “trans people will always exist,” another depicting a woman lying down with the caption “busy thinking about girls” and a babygrow with the words “bien proud” in the colors of the LGBTQ+ flag. It also included a rainbow neck pillow, multi-colored fairy lights as well as a trans flag.

Here’s news flash, the Wall Street Journal, Target has been suffering losses since February of 13% because of a boycott that was called because of tucking bathing suit and chest flattening bras.



Et Tu, Adidas

Adidas is getting into the virtue signal game.

According to The Blaze:

Adidas used what appeared to be a male model to promote its “pride”-themed clothing collection, with a person who has a hairy chest and visible bulge modeling a swimsuit for the “women’s sportswear” section.

The Daily Mail reported that Adidas’ “Pride 2023” collection features a $70 swimsuit as part of its line, with the mantra “Let Love Be Your Legacy.” The swimsuit, listed under “women’s clothing,” appears to be modeled by a man with a hairy chest and crotch bulge.

It is an absolutely terrible picture. It is disgusting. Pretty sure this is not going to sell a lot of bathing suits to women.



Not Going to Work

This is what is going to end up happening. This is where the backlash is effective. There will be backlash because people are getting sick of all this crap.

According to the Daily Wire:

Anheuser-Busch will launch camouflage and motorcycle-themed beer can redesigns for Bud Light and Budweiser as the multinational conglomerate reels from its recent partnership with self-identified transgender social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney.

One unnamed executive from the company informed the New York Post on Tuesday that the firm will produce a camouflage Bud Light can as part of an initiative that offers educational scholarships to family members of fallen American military service members and first responders. “It’s an aluminum bottle,” the source told the outlet. “I believe it is the only package that will be transitioning, but I am not 100% certain on that.”

Bud Light is down 17% since the Dylan Mulvaney mess and they are trying to go back to the America theme to get their customers back.

Do you know what they have yet to do? Apologize and say they won’t do it again. The boycott will continue until they do that.
