Unvaccinated NFL player rips league’s COVID-19 rules: ‘I’d rather die actually living’

NFL player Cole Beasley said that he does not plan to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and threatened to defy league protocol for players amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“Hi, I’m Cole Beasley and I’m not vaccinated,” the wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills shared in a statement on Twitter on Friday. “I will be outside doing what I do. I’ll be out in the public. If your  scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated. Point. Blank. Period.” 

“I may die of covid, but I’d rather die actually living. I have family members whose days are numbered. If they want to come see me and stay at my house then they are coming regardless of protocol,” he added.

The NFL and the NFL Players Association earlier this month agreed to new COVID-19 guidance, lifting most rules for those who have been vaccinated.

Idiocracy

Sometimes comedic ‘science fiction’ really is prophetic (and it’s hardly taken five centuries).

We can’t entirely take credit for this. Business Insider observed in 2020:

Somehow, the dystopian future predicted in Mike Judge’s 2006 film “Idiocracy” has gone from far-fetched satire to something closer to a documentary. 

There are some retail-specific ways, however, in which the world we live in currently resembles the world of “Idiocracy.” Here are seven ways that today’s retail world is a lot like the future of “Idiocracy” — and one way it very much isn’t.

And in 2016, on the eve of Trump’s tumultuous first presidential term, Time declared how the “US has become an Idiocracy”:

Nearly everything predicted in Idiocracy has come true, and more. In the movie, the language is so coarsened, there are curses on billboards; the ones for this year’s MTV Movie Awards read F-ck the Tux. As predicted, words are being replaced by pictograms. Kids are having birthday parties at Hooters; in the movie they have them at an overtly sexualized version of Fuddruckers called Buttf-ckers. Back in 2006, Time would never have let me print Buttf-ckers. In the Idiocracy-est moment of the whole 2016 campaign, a Trump supporter who shoved a black protester in the face explained his candidate-selection process to a reporter on MSNBC, Ali Vitali, thusly: “He’s no-bullsh-t. All balls. F-ck you, all balls. That’s what I’m about.” Though George Washington never said those exact words, he would have certainly killed a man for saying them.

Rapper Goes VIRAL for Anti-Woke “Snowflakes” Song (Video)

Gateway Pundit
June 7, 2021

Rapper Tom MacDonald is once again topping the iTunes charts with an incredible music video slamming woke social justice warriors.

The stunning video for his new song “Snowflakes” also features popular right-wing political commentator Blaire White.

“I hear ’em preaching at a protest that hatred’s the problem, but hating straight men, white folks, and Christians is common. Coca Cola telling people they should be less white — they preaching tolerance but if you disagree, they fight,” MacDonald raps. “There’s a race war here, elections based on fear — Black lives only matter once every four years.”

“Snowflakes” reached #1 on the iTunes all-genre sales listing on Friday afternoon, beating out BTS’ “Butter (Cooler Remix).”

As of Monday evening, the video had been viewed 3,664,399 times.

MacDonald previously topped the charts with his video for “Fake Woke.”

Nike denies involvement in ‘Satan Shoes’, but critics can’t help but keep noticing the SWOOSH on the sides

March 29, 2021

Nike has taken steps to distance itself from the blood-injected ‘Satan Shoes’ promoted by rapper Lil Nas X, saying it didn’t make or endorse the product, but skeptics were more swayed by the iconic Swoosh logo on the sneakers.

“We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF,” Nike said in a statement to NBC News on Sunday, two days after news of the new sneakers began to create a buzz on social media. “Nike did not design or release these shoes, and we do not endorse them.”

Super Bowl LV [Satanic] Half Time Show

CBS/Viacom
February 7, 2021

If it’s true that, “A picture says a thousand words,” this year’s Super Bowl Half Time show was rife with occult symbols and messaging, beginning with the first moments featuring the fallen angel and his followers, followed by a flurry of red and black costuming, masked, zombie-like dancers, and so on. But perhaps we’re reading too much into this 14 plus minutes of otherwise ‘wholesome family entertainment.’

Occult Ritual Transformation and Coronavirus

How Mask Wearing, Hand Washing, “Social Separation” and Lockdowns Are Age-Old Occult Rituals Being Used to Initiate People Into a New Global Order

Regardless of ones spiritual or theological bearings, we have found this to be an especially insightful article. It is certainly among the most provocative on the “coronavirus pandemic,” and the totalitarian-style practices it entails, to which so many civic leaders and citizenry have succumbed.-Ed.

(May 19, 2020)

In previous Bible studies and commentaries, I’ve documented many times now that our global leaders today are largely occultists. (See hereherehere and here.)

So are the owners of many of our country’s largest businesses and sports franchises.  (See here and here.)

Even celebrities push occultism constantly. (See here.)

And quite frankly, many Christian churches have been infiltrated by practitioners of Kabbalah, which is a book of Jewish mysticism, magick spells, enchantments, man-made numerology and other esoteric and occult practices that the orthodox rabbis use in the course of their daily lives, and now teach Christian leaders to use, as well. (See here.)

So, with so many of the world’s “top tier” leaders pushing occultism – including those enemies of Christ who run the four hidden dynasties of politics, education, economics and religion — it should come as no surprise to you that the entire global coronavirus crisis is replete with occult symbology and ritual occult initiation themes.

Indeed, as you’ll see throughout the rest of this commentary, the entire manufactured coronavirus crisis is one giant, occult ritual from start to finish, divided up into four mini-rituals, each with the distinct occult purpose of initiation and transformation of the world and its people into a new global order.

So, let’s start by examining the four distinct, but interrelated, occult rituals that make up this massive global occult ritual initiation ceremony:

  1. Ritual Mask-Wearing
  2. Ritual Hand-Washing
  3. Ritual “Social Distancing”
  4. Ritual Lockdowns

In the course of examining these four occult rituals, I’ll do my best to explain to you how each one is part of an elaborate stage play designed to symbolically initiate the people of this world into their new positions in a new global order – a new order that rejects Jesus Christ and Christianity, and puts the people of this world under the ultimate control of a global elite whose god is the devil himself.

South Park Targets Gender-Demarcated Sports and Transgender Athletes

The most recent episode of Comedy Central’s South Park focuses on how transsexual athletes are “breaking” multiple records in various organized sports demarcated by gender.

This week’s show features a pro-wrestler Randy Savage-like antagonist who demolishes “her” competitors at the “Strong Woman” meet, to the tune of the “Strong Woman” theme song, which sounds remarkably similar to Blue Oyster Cult’s 1977 monster homage, “Godzilla.”

As expected, the episode has earned the ire of major media and pro-transsexual commentators, who point to South Park creators’ “transphobia.” This dynamic is anticipated in the show’s featured “PC babies”, the offspring of South Park’s excessively PC male (he/him) school principal and his body building female (she/her) spouse.

Sophia Narwitz, a male at birth who now identifies as a woman, writes at RT that the phenomenon has reached limits worthy of lampooning.

Trans athletes like Rachel Mckkinnon are destroying cycling records. Mary Gregory broke four women’s powerlifting records in a single day. Two transgender students won top prize at a girl’s state championship track event. And there’s many more similar stories. But one cannot question or criticize this new phenomena as the media and far left reactionaries pile on with hate and accusations of bigotry. 

Their mindset is muddying the water of a topic that needs debate. LGBT activists can argue that trans athletes don’t have an edge, but they do. I myself am biologically male. Hormones may have refined my features, softened my skin, and given me boobs. Some muscle mass may have even been redistributed or lessened, but much of it remains the same, as does my unchanging skeletal structure. If I was to train and then compete in sports, I would have an edge. 

The episode also pokes fun at how federal legislation is arrived at, and has a “happy” resolution where South Park school girls who through a newly-created law establish a gender-specific gaming club where they give the incredibly “successful” trans athlete a true run for “her” money.

Is the show “funny”? That arguably depends on whether one considers transgenders a marginalized group. Given the transgender movement’s now considerable influence on public policy and much of the corporate sector, one may certainly contend that South Park’s creators return full circle to what made the cartoon a household name–thoughtful (albeit often crude) criticism of mainstream institutions and culture.

No laughing matter: PC policing would make ‘Monty Python’ and other comedies ‘crimes’ today

Neil Clark

The classic British comedy series ‘Monty Python’ is 50 years old this month, but the sobering fact is that it, along with other shows of the era, would not be made today due to politically correct policing.

The Spanish Inquisition was a series of sketches in a 1970 episode of ‘Monty Python.’ Whenever a character said “I didn’t expect a Spanish Inquisition,” the Spanish Inquisition would turn up with the words “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.” The thing is today, all comedy writers do expect the PC Police Inquisition, so they self-censor. Which is why modern comedy is nowhere near as inventive, or funny, as it was 50 years ago.

There are so many things modern comedy writers can’t say, for fear of being branded ‘racist/anti-Semitic/sexist/homophobic/genderist/misogynistic – or a combination of the aforementioned. Even the mildest joke could get you into serious trouble. And that’s a big problem. As Python John Cleese has said: “All humor is critical. If you start to say ‘We mustn’t; we mustn’t criticize or offend them,’ then humor is gone.”  

The Pythons didn’t so much think outside of the box, for them – to quote the zany comedy character Professor Bob Kazinski – there was no box. In his book ‘Very Naughty Boys,’ Robert Sellers notes that Python Graham Chapman was known for his ‘eccentric’ behavior. “Once, when presented with a show-business award at some swish function by Lord Mountbatten, Chapman crawled to the stage on all-fours, clasped the prize between his teeth, squawked, and then returned to his table.” Alas, they don’t make them like Chapman any more.
