Joe Biden and the COVID regime continue to tighten the screws to Americans.
The elites want the forever-pandemic in place permanently.
Now a basketball legend was booted from his alma mater because of one insane Biden policy.
NBA Hall of Fame basketball player John Stockton has been very vocal against the COVID regime.
He appeared in a documentary railing against lockdowns and vaccine mandates, much to the dismay of the Left.
Now Stockton is being barred from attending basketball games at Gonzaga, his alma mater, because of his refusal to wear a mask.
Gonzaga said in a statement:
“Gonzaga 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.”
Meanwhile, other states—even blue states—are rolling back their COVID restrictions.
But Washington State is run by leftists thanks to Seattle’s far-left politics.
Stockton said in an interview:
“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.”
There is scant evidence for mask efficacy.
Even CNN admitted that cloth masks are nothing more than facial decorations.
But wearing masks has become part of the persistent COVID theater.
Some leftists even admitted they were reluctant to take off their masks because they did not want to be perceived as Republicans.
“There’s probably a lot of different directions this can go, and I think time will tell on all of that…My focus is to maintain that relationship, as is theirs. They’ve made it very clear that we’re important to each other and I don’t think that’s going to change. However, there are some absolute impasses that we’re going to figure out.”
It should come as no surprise that Gonzaga would treat a legend like this.
The Jesuit university is far to the left; conservative speakers have been deplatformed while militant communist Angela Davis was welcomed with open arms.
If someone was going to stand up to Gonzaga’s pointless mask mandate, it would be Stockton.
In the documentary, he made the jaw-dropping claim that over 100 professional athletes have died because of the COVID vaccine.
“I think it’s highly recorded now, there’s 150 I believe now, it’s over 100 professional athletes dead – professional athletes – the prime of their life, dropping dead that are vaccinated, right on the pitch, right on the field, right on the court,” Stockton said.
However, those numbers are impossible to substantiate because vaccine injuries are not covered with the same fervor of COVID deaths.
