Golf Whitewashing at Trump Bedminster

Golf Whitewashing at Trump Bedminster

Small “d” democracy

By Mark Lurinsky.

The PGA Tour is an American-based century old sports institution that wants to continue as the focus of the golf world. So in June it took the unprecedented step of suspending 17 players who broke ranks and accepted the lure of megabucks to play in and promote the rival “LIV Golf Series” sponsored by the repressive Saudi Arabian monarchy. If you haven’t been following the story, the Saudi’s are trying to pull off what is in effect a hostile takeover of global professional golf for the purpose of whitewashing their notoriety. In a reference to the role of the regime in the infamous murder and gruesome dismembering of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the New York Times columnist and economist Paul Krugman aptly labeled the Saudi sports events the “Bone Saw Tour”.[1] By extension, those few players who were somehow unsatisfied with the high dollars pro golf is affording them are literally now “playing along” with the Saudi’s whitewash attempts, unlike their PGA Tour colleagues, such as Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, who wouldn’t take the money.

A grassroots, progressive organization seeking solutions through community

BlueWaveNJ has become a respected grassroots organization recognized for the know-how and energy of its thousands of committed volunteers and supporters.

Our working groups, conferences, marches and special events have mobilized voters and coalitions to demand positive change from our legislators at the state and federal level in such critical areas as health care, the economy, marriage equality, the environment, education, electoral reform and sensible gun control. We have held major conferences on gun violence, stem cell research, Middle East peace, diversity and commercial sexual exploitation of children, and our nation’s growing health care crisis. We have distributed thousands of educational flyers, circulated petitions,  and written hundreds of letters and directly lobbied legislators and officials demanding that they save Social Security, protect net neutrality, restrict corporate media concentration, promote alternative energy production, provide universal health care, promote “clean elections,” install reliable voting machines, ensure quality education for all, and pass marriage equality legislation. We have also trained thousands of volunteers who help elect progressive leaders at local, state, and national levels. 

Join us as we continue our fight in areas like electoral reform, social justice, and economic justice.
