Liberals love to lampoon the Prophet Muhammad, but hands off Serena Williams

31 74 843

Perhaps for Serena Williams, 36, it was the painful realization that her long reign over woman’s tennis – a record 23 Grand Slam victories over the course of a dazzling and very lucrative career – was being quickly eclipsed by a 20-year-old usurper named Naomi Osaka. Or perhaps she just let the heat of the moment get the best of her. Whatever the case may be, the American tennis star provided no shortage of blistering action, much of which, unfortunately, occurred off the court.

Before we discuss those off-court antics and others, it’s important to understand what exactly transpired at the US Open final.

Although many expected the American to manhandle (excuse me, person-handle) the young Osaka, who was just a babe in diapers when William’s career was in its ascendancy, the Japanese stormed to an early lead and then essentially let Williams beat herself.

After being penalized for calling chair umpire Carlos Ramos a “thief,” Williams summoned up the evil spirits of political correctness to plead her case. She was heard telling officials that many male tennis players have done “much worse” without any sort of retribution. In other words, Ramos was a cave-dwelling “sexist” put on earth to thwart the progress of womanhood.

During her post-game interview, Serena told a news conference, “I’m here, fighting for women’s rights, for women’s equality, and for all kind of stuff… it made me think that it was a sexist remark [referring to the penalty Ramos awarded her for calling him a “thief”].

There were faint echoes of Oprah Winfrey’s famous speech at the Golden Globes in that it was the right message delivered at exactly the wrong time and place.

So now, America’s dethroned tennis queen, playing the gender card game instead of tennis, is acting spokesperson for downtrodden women........
