The NBA, NFL & The CCP

“I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, but guess what, they’re not, they’re not competition for us.” “Beijing Joe” Biden on China, as the draconian Chinese Communist Party’s coverup led to a pandemic that continues to threatens the lives of people around the globe.

As the athletes in the NBA, MLB and NFL protest allegations of police brutality and slavery in the United States, which is their First Amendment right, they continue to kneel as the Star Spangled Banner is played for whatever reasons they perceive as the ills of the country that presented them the opportunity to earn oodles of money. Granted, the country is not perfect, but it’s still the greatest in world history. Yet, as with the self-centered, hypocritical, elitists of the entertainment industry, these athletes are pampered in a way an overwhelming number of people can only fantasize about and live in an entirely different universe. Yet, they wear uniforms, promote sneakers and apparel, that are made in Communist China, who mistreat people similar to that of Nazi Germany’s SA, SS and Gestapo. The “SA,”Sturmabteilung,German for “Assault Division,” or Storm Troopers/Brownshirts, was the paramilitary organization whose methods of violent intimidation played a key role in Adolf Hitler’s rise to power. The “SS,” or Schutzstaffel, German for “Protective Echelon,” were the black-uniformed elite corps and self-described “political soldiers” of the Nazi Party. And lastly, the Gestapo, Geheime Staatspolizei, the Secret State Police, was the official secret police of Nazi Germany and German-occupied Europe. I don’t hear those entitled and rich athletes protesting against a source of their ungodly sums of income that flows from Communist China.

Satellite images indicated that at least 1 million Chinese Muslims have been interned in more than 260 identified concentration work camps located in Xinjiang, which is in Northwest China. The Communist Chinese Party is taking draconian measures to slash the birth rates among the youngest and other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population. The Communist Chinese Party is concerned that they eradicate extremist and separatist ideas and this is a way of eliminating threats to China. ABC News, amazingly, reported that the Chinese government has tortured and brainwashed ethnic Uighurs, while deploying a mass sterilization campaign against the Muslim minorities, which is genocide. So, where are all the protests from the Sarsours, Tlaibs and Omars, who verbally attack the country that affords them the opportunity to exercise their First Amendment rights without fear of incarceration? They are more focused on the destruction of Israel, promoting anti-Semitism and “fundamentally changing” the United States.

The draconian Communist Chinese Party has maintained that the Muslim Uighurs represent an Islamic terrorist threat to the country. To that end, it appears that the draconian Communist Chinese Party is focused on keeping the full weight of Beijing on these people in order to prevent the possibility of resistance and religious dissidence. According to reports, this is one of the most policed sections of Communist China, similar to Nazi Germany’s Gestapo.

I really do not care about the NBA, but NBA Commissioner Adam Silver had reportedly donated the maximum campaign contribution amount to Democratic candidate Joe Biden, despite the common knowledge of the Obama/Biden stance towards anti-Semitism and how they tried (will try again) to torpedo Israel in the UN. It’s remarkable that Jewish liberals, such as Silver, remain their own worst enemies. Additionally, don’t forget the billions of NBA revenue comes from Communist China, despite unleashing the COVID-19 virus on the world and the use of forced labor camps from Uighur, the aforementioned Chinese Muslims. Additionally, Chinese television terminated the broadcast of NBA games after Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey posted a Tweet in support of Hong Kong Democracy protesters. He was forced by the NBA, under pressure from the draconian Communist Chinese Party, to delete the Tweet, effectively violating his First Amendment rights.

While I am far from a basketball fan, much less a NBA fan, I find it fascinating that LeBron James, who’s net worth is $450M, has an annual average contract of $35.65M and is the second highest salaried player in the NBA, says nothing about the manner in which the Chinese Communist Party treats its citizens. Yes, he has earned his money through hard work and good fortune, but James exploited the free market system, as his fans funded a great life for his family for next ten generations. The question is why does James, and other professional athletes bite the American hand that feeds them so to speak, yet praise the Chinese Communist Party, who employ slaves to produce their products? James’ answer should prove to be enlightening, if he has one.

Additionally, “China had passed its new National Security Law, that effectively ended Hong Kong’s freedom and allows the draconian Communist Chinese Party to directly handle cases “in very special circumstances.”Epoch News, July 2020. Not a word from “Beijing Joe”Biden.

As a point of reference, I lost all interest in basketball when the American Basketball Association merged with the NBA. The New York Nets, with Julius Erving and championships in 1974 & 1976, went the way of the dodo bird. The 1974 New York Nets would have defeated Jordan’s Bulls. The NBA game copies the ABA. The one radical difference is that today’s professional game is, “Watch me and see what I can do,” as opposed to the team game that was played by the league with the red, white and blue basketball. And I have an issue with leagues supporting BLM, who completely changed their original message and now are a self-proclaimed, ardent Marxist, anti-American and anti-Semitic organization, with intimidation in their playbook. My question is why aren’t they in Chicago and NYC helping instead of condemning and promoting violence in the cities who’s neighborhood businesses are torched?

On the flip side, former NFL star Warrick Dunn was raised in Baton Rouge, LA. He was the oldest of six to his single mother, Betty Smothers. Betty was a police officer until January 7th, 1993, when she was ambushed and killed while escorting a businesswoman to make a night deposit. Warrick was only 18 years old. The young man was faced with becoming head of the household. Warrick used his mother’s life insurance to purchase a home for his younger siblings. In the midst of the tragedy, he raised his five siblings while attending FSU. Warrick would go on to play five seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, and then one final year with the Buccaneers. He retired from the NFL 14th all-time in all-purpose yards with 15,306 and 19th in rushing yards with 10,967. Upon finishing a solid career, he has built and paid for over 145 homes for lower socioeconomic families so they can have better lives. There are other athletes that have similar charities and stories, but it’s the self-centered egotistical, “me, me, me” elitists that garner the limelight.

So, we have The United States v the Draconian Communist Chinese Party. Ask yourself who’s winning and think about what’s at stake. Right now it appears that the CCP is no longer ahead of the Federal Government, despite the years of damage done by the Obama/Biden administration. The pandemic started in China, they have exploited & lied about the COVID-19, while stealing intellectual property, while expanding their influence with infrastructure investments with many of our allies. Americans need Chinese plastic. OTC drugs are produced in China. PPE’s are made in China, yet are ignorant of the CCP’s genocide of Uighur Muslims. To that end, President Donald John Trump signed into legislation an executive order against the draconian Communist Chinese Party that will hold that government accountable for its oppressive actions against the people of Hong Kong. Yet, “Beijing Joe” maintains that the Communist Chinese Party is not our competition as he, and his syndicate, had fattened their wallets on our backs. Is this the right man to sit in the big chair, especially when Biden is nothing more than a Trojan Horse, with failing cognitive skills? I hope that people are not dependent on the name of his party…because this is not your parents’ party, nor that of JFK. Oh My!
