During the NBC Sports/Golf Channel pre-game show of the WM Phoenix Open, host Rich Lerner and analyst Brandel Chamblee ripped into Phil Mickelson for his criticism of the PGA Tour.

Normally, this kind of critique is fair game but the duo used Saudi Arabia’s poor human rights record as a cudgel to hit Phil, all the while wearing the logo of NBC Sports which is the official propagandist network for the CCP Olympics, aka “The Genocide Games.”

The hypocrisy is mind blowing.

Not only is NBC disgracefully monetizing its network to “sportswash” the Chinese Communist Party’s human rights’ abuses which includes forced organ harvesting, they have been sportswashing Red China for decades with coverage of the various tour’s (PGA, LPGA, Europe) events in the authoritarian communist country.

It’s also hysterical to hear the PGA Tour attempt to get on their moral high horse, relative to Saudi Arabia, given the tour’s history in China, which, along with its annual stop in Shanghai, includes a PGA Tour-branded circuit overseen by the brutal Chinese communist regime.

So. Spare us your virtue signaling.
