CNN has never met a government dictate or private business rule that they don’t like.
Oppression, censorship and the control of the people is what the leftists are all about and they just can’t understand why everyone can’t just play along.
On Monday, CNN had a segment about former NBA point guard John Stockton’s (and arguably Gonzaga’s most famous alumni) refusal to wear a mask at the Gonzaga basketball games. Because of his decision, Gonzaga suspended his season tickets.
Leftists all over the country praised Gonzaga for dinging John for violating the university’s mask mandate.
While reporting the story, CNN Anchor Bianna Golodryga said, “Not that difficult folks” about having to wear a mask.
Nope. Not difficult at all to submit to tyranny.
I’m surprised the Founders kept up their push to start a new country when they could have just sat back and put up with the rules from the British.
Not that difficult folks.
“The rules apply to all of us” Golodryga said.
That’s the problem. Leftist tyranny doesn’t take individualism into consideration in anything they do. One size fits all. Everyone must pay.
That’s EXACTLY why we have a Constitution. To protect our freedoms from people like Golodryga.
Compliance is what leftists want – but only if they agree with the rules, of course. Don’t comply with anything that the republicans or Trump tell you to do. Then it’s “resist, resist, resist” and there are marches in the streets.
Seeing a basketball game at Gonzaga is pretty much a joke to begin with.
Besides having to wear a mask (covering your nose and mouth) and show proof of vaccination, you also can’t eat or drink there.
They have released a statement that said “Gonzago University continues to work hard to implement and enforce the health and safety protocols mandated by the State and by University policy, including reinforcing the indoor masking requirement. Attendees at basketball games are required to wear face masks at all times.”
At all times? Not so much.
There is only SELECTIVE enforcement and Stockton has been selected.
If you take a look at a video of recent games, you will see plenty of students and other spectators with their masks pulled down. So the university is obviously NOT taking their own rules seriously. Just with certain people.
And then, of course, you have the players and coaches on the sidelines unmasked. Once again, certain people are special and apparently unable to spread COVID-19 like the rest of us.
But, as with most leftist things, it’s not about reality. It’s about show.
Stockton said, “Basically, it came down to, they were asking me to wear a mask to the games and being a public figure, someone a little bit more visible, I stuck out in the crowd a little bit. And therefore they received complaints and felt like from whatever the higher-ups — those weren’t discussed, but from whatever it was higher up — they were going to have to either ask me to wear a mask or they were going to suspend my tickets.”
Optics, not science, continues to be the strategy for the leftists to continue their tyrannical march across the country with their mask and vaccination mandates, whether it happens at a hospital, at work or at a basketball game.
