‘Kyrie Just Sacrificed More Than Kaepernick’: NBA Star Benched For Refusing Mandatory Vaccine Becomes Symbol
(Tea Party 247) – The rabid left has been pushing the COVID narrative hard since the beginning but it’s never been about the virus; it’s always been about the vaccine.
Now that the experimental vaccines have been made available to everyone over the age of 12 in the US, you’d think we’d see an improvement in the so-called pandemic. You’d be wrong.
Cases are surging, most notably in the states with the highest vaccination rates.
Nonetheless, vaccines are being forced on all of us and thanks to the usurper president, many Americans are faced with making the decision between standing for freedom and liberty in America or keeping their jobs and livelihoods.
Fortunately, there are many brave Americans who are willing to put everything on the line for what’s right.
NBA superstar Kyrie Irving is one of them. He has chosen not to be vaccinated and as a result has been suspended by the Brooklyn Nets until he decides to submit and get the jab.
With the new season approaching, the NBA wants nothing more than for all players to simply shut up and comply but several have publicly made it clear they don’t have any plans to do so.
Irving is the most high-profile player openly refusing the shots and therefore the league has determined to make an example out of him, showing other players what happens when they don’t bow down and do as they’re told.
Originally, Irving was prepared to sit out and not play in home games due to New York City’s dystopic vaccine mandates. He has now, however, been suspended from participating in practices and road games until he conforms.
In a statement announcing Irving’s punishment, Nets GM Sean Marks essentially accused Irving of not being a team player and said the decision to cancel him came after “thorough deliberation.”
“Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose,” Marks said. “Currently the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability.”
It’s become truly infuriating and frustrating to hear the argument that the personal choices of Americans’ is what is resulting in them losing their jobs and being punished by employers.
No. The actions of tyrannical government officials, business leaders and woke CEOs is what is costing Americans their jobs and livelihoods. Forcing people to choose between their jobs and submission is NOT freedom by any stretch of the imagination.
Irving is now being forced to choose whether or not to stand strong and resist medical tyranny in America or give in and submit to the vaccine overlords.
Fortunately, it appears Irving is standing on a solid foundation and his resistance is not just for show.
According to the sports website The Athletic, sources say Irving recognizes that he is “fighting for something bigger than basketball” and that he is upset that people are losing their jobs over not being vaccinated.
Multiple sources with direct knowledge of Kyrie Irving’s decision have told The Athletic that Irving is not anti-vaccine and that his stance is that he is upset that people are losing their jobs due to vaccine mandates.

The story paints him as wanting to be a voice for the voiceless.
Naturally, the woke Twitter mob wasted no time pouncing on Irving, led by unhinged lunatic Keith Olbermann who has disgracefully fallen from the studios of ESPN and MSNBC and reduced to making YouTube videos from his own balcony as an outlet for his outrageous anger towards anyone who dares think for themselves.
This is both Bull and Shit https://t.co/aTcfg1vBpp

“I just want to be a voice for the voiceless.” like unvaccinated people are some oppressed minority.
Kyrie is a lunatic.

“Kyrie wants to be a voice for the voiceless”. There are over 700,000 voiceless Americans that have died from COVID that he could speak for.

Despite all of the woke anger directed at Irving, there is also ample support for him. Those who stand with Irving in the fight for freedom also took to Twitter. Ironically, none of those showing support were fellow NBA players; this obvious snub has not gone unnoticed.
Too bad Kyrie doesn't work for Southwest Airlines. He'd have co-workers with balls. https://t.co/Mjf2dI6Wbs

Kyrie Irving is risking losing $33m by not getting the vaccine.
However, if he refuses, he will be the face of courage against medical tyranny. And history will remember him as a LEADER!
I stand with @KyrieIrving!

Kyrie Irving is extremely generous:
· Bought George Floyd's mom a house
· Paid tuition for 9 HBCU students
· Bought 200+ kids Christmas presents
· Provided 250k Thanksgiving meals in NYC
· Donated $1.5M to WNBA players
It's sad to see him called selfish for a personal decision.

NBA players who have for years expressed outrage for those who are supposedly “oppressed” have suddenly become uncharacteristically silent in the fight for Americans to be free from the “vaccine or unemployment” ultimatum.
Irving might not have the support of his fellow NBA stars but America is behind him and we’re thankful someone with such a big name is willing to put it all on the line for the greater good.
