Kelly Loeffler, Georgia Senator and owner of Woman’s National Basketball Association’s Atlanta Dream, is under fire for allegedly provoking the league officials to make it mandatory to place the American flag on the players’ jerseys and warm-up apparels.
The players did not like Kelly’s decision to add the BLM radical to the league. After defeating Stockton Seacows in the game 21-16, Charmita Daniels, Tahoe City Toad player, uttered “its either us or the flag” into the microphone.
Kelly Loeffler & WNBA Controversy
Kelly asked the officials to make some considerable changes in the current WNBA’s operating procedures like the addition of the American flag and removal of any sort of support for the Black Lives Matter movement. According to libertyheadlines.com, during a press conference, she stated:-
“However, I adamantly oppose the Black Lives Matter political movement, which has advocated for the defunding of police, called for the removal of Jesus from churches and the disruption of the nuclear family structure, harbored anti-Semitic views, and promoted violence and destruction across the country.”
Loeffler’s relation with WNBA players has been deteriorating since Georgia Republic Governor Brian Kemp voted for her last January to replace the resigning Senator Johnny Isakson before the end of his term due to health problems. The Gov. appointed her based on how much wealth she could contribute to her own campaigns. Kelly and her husband Jeff Sprecher, are worth over $500 Million.
The people were not shocked to witness Kelly becoming the Senator. She had previously expressed her political views and opinions on multiple occasions.
For example, she voted entirely in support of Trump passing bills like the Stopping Big Tech’s Censorship Act, the Cracking Down on Gangs and Deporting Criminals Act, and the Stop Green lighting Driver Licenses for Illegal Immigrants Act.
To fully serve the term till 2022 (Isakson’s official retirement term), Kelly would need to win the November 3 elections. She is standing against Rep. Doug Collins from the Republican party.
