The NBA is sputtering through a challenging season.
Many star players have missed time for a variety of reasons, causing a headache for the league.
And one NBA referee revealed how Biden shockingly put him out of work.
The Supreme Court struck down Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate, but many corporations still have the restrictions in place.
And long-time NBA referee Ken Mauer revealed that his career ended after he refused to take the mandatory COVID vaccine.
Mauer, a devout Catholic, chose not to get the injection on religious grounds, but that was not acceptable for the league.
After the initial vaccine rollout, Mauer was tested as many as four times per day because of his refusal to get jabbed.
Mauer told sports commentator Jason Whitlock:
“I never thought that my faith in our Lord Jesus Christ would prevent me or stop me or get in the way of me refereeing NBA basketball games…That’s what’s happened…Not to just me, but other people.”
After 36 years, the third-longest tenured referee in NBA history, Mauer is out of work.
And he’s not alone.
From The Blaze:
“Mauer said that as many as 17 referees objected to the vaccine mandate the NBA squeezed into its collective bargaining agreement with the National Basketball Referees Association before the season. There is no mandate for players. He said nine refs initially organized and hired a lawyer to fight the mandate on religious grounds.”
The league’s vaccine protocols make zero sense.
If the NBA believed COVID were such a grave threat that it required referees to get the vaccine, then the same principle should’ve applied to the players.
In reality, transmission of COVID during sporting events is exceedingly rare based on all available data.
The Blaze continued:
“By the start of the season, Mauer, Mark Ayotte, Leroy Richardson, and Jason Phillips (head of replay center) were the final holdouts. Richardson agreed to arbitration and lost his appeal. Phillips, according to Mauer, is paid to work from home. Mauer and Ayotte filed appeals with the EEOC.”
Mauer is speaking out on behalf of several referees—and people in all walks of life—who do not want to be forced into a medical procedure.
“There are many referees that didn’t want to take the vaccine. And there are many referees who were forced to because they have children, they have families, and they have bills to pay…They’re scared and I’m not. I’m never going to take [the vaccine].”
Mauer also explained how the NBA has gone entirely “woke.”
He laid out how referees were forced to undergo a Black Lives Matter training seminar.
The Blaze added:
“Mauer addressed several NBA-related topics, including the league’s embrace of Black Lives Matter. He relayed a story about a five-hour Zoom meeting among referees that was titled ‘Black Lives Matter.’”
The COVID regime is falling apart.
More and more people are speaking out against mandates, and the medical tyranny cannot hold.
