Amy Lutz had a great column yesterday about the liberal politicization of the Jovan Blecher murder-suicide. It’s tragic. Blecher, who played for the Kansas City Chiefs, fatally shot his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself. Liberals, however, are salivating. It didn’t take long for Fox Sports correspondent Jason Whitlock to offer his opinion about guns in America.
“I grew up in Kansas City as a Chiefs fan, so I’m familiar with Whitlock’s work. I used to glance at his columns after my father finished with the sports page in the Kansas City Star. Early on, his articles were focused solely on Kansas City sports. Then, as he expanded his focus, Whitlock dabbled in political punditry. That’s when I lost interest for his clear liberal bias began to show. I don’t know when a sports column became the proper venue to state one’s political opinions, but I didn’t read long to find out. It wasn’t long after Whitlock became political that my family decided the Kansas City Star was the Midwest’s Pravda and we discontinued our subscription.”
