WNBA Team Owner Kelly Loeffler Doubles Down On ‘Disapproval’ of Black Lives Matter Amid Backlash

Published: Thursday 9th Jul 2020 by Rashad

After the WNBA made their support of Black Lives Matter movement, Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler – who serves as co-owner of the Atlanta Dream team – wrote an open letter to Cathy Engelbert (commissioner of the WNBA) to express her disapproval of the movement.

Suggesting it is political and anti-Christian, Loeffler’s lengthy address saw her slam the WNBA for aligning with the movement’s goals.

“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. I believe it is totally misaligned with the values and goals of the WNBA and the Atlanta Dream, where we support tolerance and inclusion…I am incredibly disappointed to read about efforts to insert a political platform into the league.”

Needless to say, her stinging words were met with swift backlash as many called for her to step down from her position as Dream co-owner.

Now, days after making headlines and inciting the backlash, Loeffler is doubling down on her anti-BLM stance.

On Tuesday (July 7), Engelbert issued a response to Loeffler’s open letter and stated:

“The WNBA is based on the principle of equal and fair treatment of all people and we, along with the teams and players, will continue to use our platforms to vigorously advocate for social justice. Sen. Kelly Loeffler has not served as a Governor of the Atlanta Dream since October 2019 and is no longer involved in the day-to-day business of the team.”

Once the word reached Kelly’s desk, she took to Fox News to hit back.

“[Black Lives Matter] is a very divisive organization based on marxist principles,” Loeffler, who faces a tough special election battle in November, told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham. “This is an organization that seeks to destroy the American principles and I had to draw the line.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Loeffler also called the Black Lives Matter group “anti-Semitic” and claimed it is against the “nuclear family.”
