Watch: Media goes into meltdown because a single NHL player didn't wear an LGBTQ jersey
The NHL was among the last bastion of sports where you could watch a game without having woke politics crammed down your throat. Unfortunately, the left noticed that too many cis white men were enjoying something at the same time. The NHL needs to bend the knee now. They attempted to have a job fair that discriminated against able-bodied white men until Ron DeSantis said "not in Florida." Now there's an issue with an LGBTQ hockey jersey.
Not even a real jersey. A practice jersey. NHL ordered players to wear an LGBTQ jersey during warm-ups. It's the only way to let people know "hockey is for everyone" as opposed to just playing hockey. One lone player, Ivan Provorov from the Philadelphia Flyers, didn't want to wear the jersey due to his religious beliefs. So he quietly didn't come out for warm-ups. Then he came out to play the game.
Here Ivan is saying he respects everyone's decisions. He had a decision to make himself.
I respect everyone. I respect everybody’s choices.
NOPE! We can't have one lone person thinking for themselves or going against the herd. He must be made to care. If he is not going to wear the shirt, he shouldn't be allowed to play AT ALL.
Let me get this straight, you have a player that OPENLY declines to participate in an inclusive initiative for a community I am proud to be a part of. And you still dress him in the game? Be better @NHLFlyershttps://t.co/rSyV6D35Oo

Surprising to no one, the woke media agrees.
Players and individuals are allowed to have their beliefs, and we're allowed to form opinions based on them. But when they refuse to participate in a team initiative? They shouldn't get to play

This guy is full of shit. And if a player took a stand against not wearing a cross, he would be hailed in the press as a hero.
It would depend on why the NHL wanted me to wear the cross. If Christians were being persecuted just for being Christians and the league asked me to wear the cross for support, damn right I would. Doesn’t mean I believe in Christianity. https://t.co/CrrHThR0PX

This guy went on an angry rant that banning the player isn't enough. The Flyers should be fined A MILLION DOLLARS. All because one guy -- a single person -- chose not to wear a shirt.
Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov didn’t take part in the NHL’s “Hockey Is For Everyone” pregame warmups - where players wore Pride-themed jerseys and used sticks wrapped in rainbow Pride tape - citing his religion as the reason. @sid_seixeiro shares his thoughts ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/8c7XnP2FYJ

It's all performative and isn't meant for gay hockey fans. Gays fans don't need to be told something is "for them." They turn on a game and enjoy the fights that break out the same as everyone else does. No one pays attention to the warm-ups, let alone knows -- or cares -- that Ivan Provorov from the Flyers didn't warm up.
Nights like this are for no reason other than it allows "diversity consultants" to guilt an insane monthly retainer out of organizations. And so activists and journalsimers can revel in the smell of their own farts over how incusive'y and tolerent-ish they're being.
One lone man decided for himself not to take part. Burn him!
