To honor the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., LeBron James released LeBron 16s “Equality” – the newest version of shoes meant to represent MLK’s desire to bring people together.
The pair was first debuted back in 2017 in the Cavaliers vs. Wizards game where LeBron sported one black and one white shoe with the word “Equality” written in gold on the back. After the release of the shoe, LeBron gave away 400 pairs giving the proceeds to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
LeBron commented on the creation of the shoes:
“Us as Americans, no matter the skin color, no matter the race, no matter who you are, we all have to understand having equal rights and being able to stand for something, speak for something and keeping the conversation going. … We’re never going to let one person dictate us Americans — how beautiful and how powerful we are as a people. Equality is all about understanding our rights, understanding what we stand for and how powerful we are as men, as women, black or white, or Hispanic. It don’t matter your race, whatever the case may be. This is a beautiful country.”
For just $185, you too can receive your own pair of the latest LeBron’s. It is interesting that a shoe meant to help bring together all cultures – both rich and poor – costs almost $200.
While this sounds like a great attempt to bring people together, let’s not forget that the star athlete has long been using his platform to grow the hatred toward the President. The longtime critic of Trump – who even endorsed Hillary in 2016 – stated in the past that Trump was “using sports to kinda divide us”, according to CNBC.
Turning his social justice movement into a political stab, LeBron wastes no time in throwing shade at the President, “…we’re never going to let one person dictate us Americans”, he said when asked about the appearance of “Equality”. A shoe meant to bring people together is actually being used to tear people further apart. This shoe is supposedly made for ‘everyone’, but only if you also disagree with President Trump, like it’s creator.
James even took to Twitter to express his disdain with President Trump uninviting Steph Curry to the White House:
Because calling the President a “bum” is a surefire way to bring people together, right? LeBron’s message contradicts itself. With the appearance of LeBron 16s, the newest version of ‘Equality’, maybe LeBron should be willing to work with the President for overall equality instead of working against him.
LeBron states, “I just wanted to keep the conversation going. We know what we’re going through. We know what we went through as a nation, as a world. So I had an opportunity to use a platform for the greater good and keep the conversation going. Why not?” according to The Undefeated.
Perhaps LeBron should take his own advice and being working with people who have different ideas than his own, to truly reach ‘Equality’.
Left-wing Snowflakes Working for Publisher Attempt Censorship Revolt Over New Jordan Peterson Book
They really hate freedom of expression.
Shortly after news broke that individualist author Jordan Peterson would be releasing a new book, far-left staffers at the book’s publisher, Penguin Random House Canada, are attempting a revolt to get the book censored.
VICE has reported on certain staff members throwing tantrums during a recent townhall over Penguin Random House’s intended publication of Peterson’s new book, Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life. The book is scheduled to be released in March 2021.
“He is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy, regardless of the content of his book, I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him,” a LGBT pervert who wants Peterson’s book to be censored said to VICE World News.
Another weakling employee said that “people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives.”
“The company since June has been doing all these anti-racist and allyship things and them publishing Peterson’s book completely goes against this. It just makes all of their previous efforts seem completely performative,” the employee said.
The publisher is apparently not folding to the snowflakes and will continue with their plans to publish the book despite their whininess.
“We announced yesterday that we will publish Jordan Peterson’s new book Beyond Order this coming March. Immediately following the announcement, we held a forum and provided a space for our employees to express their views and offer feedback. Our employees have started an anonymous feedback channel, which we fully support. We are open to hearing our employees’ feedback and answering all of their questions. We remain committed to publishing a range of voices and viewpoints,” the statement said.
Big League Politics has reported on how companies are beginning to ignore their left-wing employees and instead make decisions based on market demands:
A contingent of leftist snowflakes working at Spotify are demanding that certain podcast episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience be censored to their ideological demands, or they will strike.
Last week, it was reported that Spotify was undergoing a revolt of sorts because several controversial episodes of the podcast were being published on the platform. An episode featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, is particularly offensive to the left-wing snowflakes who hate freedom of speech and love mentally-ill individuals getting their genitals mutilated.
Rogan is already being forced to grovel for making accurate statements on his podcast, such as when he correctly claimed that left-wing terrorists are starting wildfires in places like Portland.
“I said something on the podcast with Douglas Murray about people getting arrested for lighting fires, and I got duped. It’s wrong,” Rogan said in an Instagram post.
Smelling blood in the water, the Spotify leftists are going for the jugular. They are threatening to strike if they cannot exert further ideological control over Rogan’s podcast. According to Digital Music News, New York-based Spotify employees are intending to strike with accompanying pro-censorship protests outside of Spotify’s Manhattan headquarters.
However, they report that Spotify brass is likely willing to stare down these entitled employees, considering the $100 million investment they put into Rogan’s podcast.
“It also appears that Spotify management — including CEO Daniel Ek — has a limited tolerance for the mutiny on deck… The reason for Ek’s pushback is somewhat obvious. Joe Rogan’s entire identity revolves around unfiltered discussion and opinion, and audiences could abandon the podcast if it becomes censored or controlled,” Digital Music News reported.
Companies are beginning to realize that “get woke, go broke” is a truism and adjusting accordingly by ignoring liberal tantrums.
