Moore, who later worked as the Wall Street Journal editorial board member, was at that time the president of the Growth Club, a conservative political organization. He was a CNN contributor from 201
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The columns attract new attention as his previous views and statements face scrutiny before what may be a contentious confirmation process to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. Trump said in March that he intends to nominate Moore for the post, but Moore has not been officially nominated yet.
In one of his 2002 columns, Moore proposed changes to the Mars Madness tournament to get rid of "un-American" aspects of it. The first rule proposed by Moore was "no women."
"Here is the rule change I propose: No more women judges, no female announcements, no women beer vendors, no women anything," he wrote in March 2002. "Of course, there is an exception to this rule. Women are allowed to Participate, if and only if they look like Bonnie Bernstein. The fact that Bonnie doesn't know anything about basketball is completely irrelevant. "He later wrote that Bernstein, a CBS sports journalist at that time, should wear lame tops.
Formerly the column, Moore expressed reluctance to a woman who sentenced an NCAA game.
"How outrageous is this? This year, they promised a woman is referring to a man's NCAA game. Liberals are celebrating this breakthrough as a triumph for gender equity," Moore wrote. "The NCAA has been touting this as an example of how progressive they are. I see it as an obscenity. Is there no area in life where men can take vacation from women? What's next? Women invited to bachelor parties? Women in combat? yes, they have already done so.) Why can't women reflect on women's games and men's games. I can't wait to see the first lady, have a run-in with Bobby Knight. "
Moore wrote that this was part of "greater and more serious social problem in America" which was "the feminization of basketball in general". Moore added that he didn't care to watch women's basketball and he was upset playing was shown on ESPN.
"And while I'm waiting for the subject, there's another travesty: in playground games and recalculations these days, women now feel free to play with the men – uninvited in almost every case," la Moore. "There is no pleasure knocking over a girl. Don't worry I can't dunk (except on the eight foot curves). If I could, I wouldn't celebrate knocking over anyone called Tina."
Moore raised complaints about his column the 13 days later, mocking allegations of sexism.
In another column in 2000, Moore said the real issue of inequality in sports was women who did more than" collegiate "men like Moore said" could beat them right away. "
" The female tennis pros do not really want equal pay for equal work, they want equal pay for poorer work. There is a very practical reason why Pete Sampras, for example, gives much more money than Martina Hingis does, "wrote Moore." He's a lot, much better than she is. The day Martina can return Pete's service is the day she should have paid what he does. If it is wrong in tennis, it is that women like Martina Hingis and Monica Seles make millions of dollars a year, even though there are hundreds of men at collegiate level (provided the schools have not beaten the sport) that could beat them by hand. "
" But these men do nothing. Venus Williams is a multimillionaire not despite being women, but precisely because she is a woman, Moore continued. "She receives a much higher salary than an equally skilled man. Isn't that exactly the opposite of what is meant by profitability? ”
