NBC ‘Sports’ Helps Bully Clemson Coach Out of Family Group Appearance

What’s helping broken families compared to running afoul of the LGBT agenda?

Dabo Swinney just learned that in the age of cultural fascism, no good deed goes unpunished, and no issue is too beside-the-point for the “sports” media to offer their liberal opinions on.

The Clemson head football coach recently was invited to receive the award of “South Carolina Family Champion of 2015” from the Palmetto Family Council. A small outcry ensued from a handful of students at Clemson along with a wider variety of pro-gay media outlets demanding that Swinney reject the award.

While USA Today Sports called the Council an “anti-LGBT group,” the Council’s website claims its vision is “to transform the culture in South Carolina by promoting the values and virtues of marriage, the traditional family model, and sexual purity.”  According to NBC Sports, the organization is “dedicated to fighting against equality for the LGBT community and same-sex couples.” Yeah … sounds about the same.

Swinney was to receive the award for charitable work with alcohol and drug addictions in families through his All-In Foundation. Certainly, that good work merits recognition, even if it’s from a group that doesn’t celebrate the gay agenda?

Not so. The NBC article adds, “It is clear we still have some work to do to provide the same human rights to those in the LGBT community.” Clear from what? Swinney’s efforts to build stability in families with drug problems?

Somehow, Swinney’s support of damaged families was twisted into an offense to the LGBT community.

As if the article’s logical leaps weren’t confusing enough, it includes the caveat that “Nobody has a right to step in and tell Swinney he is wrong to support his beliefs, no matter how backwards you think they may be.” But calling someone backward is no better than telling them that they’re wrong, and the award had nothing to do with LGBT issues in the first place. 

Swinney has since pulled out of the fundraiser, saying, “in order to avoid a distraction for the team and the entire football program, I’ve decided it is in the best interests of all involved that I not attend the event.” According to NBC, this is what makes him “a great example and leader,” not the charitable work to help troubled families.
