Steve Clevenger is likely out of baseball for good. Failure to adhere to the politically correct narrative has earned him a trip to the gulags in spite of his apology.
The Seattle Mariners has suspended catcher Steve Clevenger for the remainder of the Major League Baseball season over controversial tweets in which he called the Black Lives Matter movement and President Barack Obama “pathetic.”
Clevenger posted a series of comments on Twitter on Thursday, two days after Keith Lamont Scott, a 43-year-old black man, was fatally shot by police in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Mariners catcher appeared to suggest that those protesting against Scott’s shooting should be locked up “like animals.” He also mocked athletes who have been protesting by kneeling during the national anthem at sports events.
“Black people beating whites when a thug got shot holding a gun by a black officer haha s–t cracks me up! Keep kneeling for the anthem!” Clevenger tweeted on Thursday.
“BLM is pathetic once again! Obama is pathetic once again! Everyone involved should be locked behind bars like animals,” another tweet from his account read.
So the left lauds Colin Kapernick’s protest, while silencing Steve Clevenger. Yeah, that sounds about right.
He’ll never work in baseball again.
