‘Use me God’: NBA’s Kyrie Irving calls vaxx mandates ‘one of the biggest violations of HUMAN RIGHTS in history’

Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving excoriated New York City Mayor Eric Adams following his latest vaccine mandate change, calling enforced COVID jabs a historic human rights violation.

The NBA player has not been shy about voicing his opinion concerning the mandates. He missed approximately two-thirds of last season due to New York City’s insane and oppressive rules. Now, he’s taking aim at the latest change by Adams who ended the private employer vaccine mandate on Tuesday but is still requiring city workers to be vaccinated in order to work.

“If I can work and be unvaccinated, then all of my brothers and sisters who are also unvaccinated should be able to do the same, without being discriminated against, vilified, or fired,” Irving tweeted.

“This enforced Vaccine/Pandemic is one the biggest violations of HUMAN RIGHTS in history,” he asserted.

Irving stood his ground as an unvaccinated player in the NBA. Not an easy thing to do in New York City which had some of the harshest restrictions against those who refused the jab. He only played 29 games last season with Brooklyn, six of which were at Barclays Center.

Compare that to other teams where unvaccinated players were allowed to play in their home stadiums if it was allowed by their city’s COVID mandates.

Owner Joe Tsai and General Manager Sean Marks agreed that Irving should begin the season at the Nets’ facility and shouldn’t be a part-time player due to his vaccination status. But when players started getting injured and then tested positive for the virus, all of that changed. Irving was relegated to only playing with his team when they went on the road.

That continued until March of 2022 when New York City finally loosened its restrictions. The liberal bastion declared that unvaxxed athletes and entertainers would now be permitted to perform at Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, and elsewhere.

Despite Irving not being affected by the mandate this season, he’s still speaking up for those who are because they choose not to get the vaccine.

“I played 29 games, I barely played home games. It wasn’t a typical season I would have wanted. But things happen. I had to stand on a whole bunch of bigger stuff than just that,” he told the New York Post.

Adams got a staged and propagandized booster shot on live TV while announcing the mandate change, proclaiming, “Our vaccinated workforce kept the city open and operating, with over 300,000 employees it was crucial to put it in place, and we’re keeping it in place.”

“Our vaccinated workers have carried out their jobs and stepped up when the city needed them the most and we think it’s imperative to send the right message and lead by example,” Adams hypocritically contended, displaying a level of tone-deafness that was impressive even by New York standards.

The mayor also claimed that 89 percent of New Yorkers, including children, have been vaccinated. Therefore, the vaccine requirements for New York City schoolchildren to play sports and other higher-risk extracurricular activities are also being dropped. The city will still encourage vaccines and boosters despite President Biden declaring the pandemic is over.

“The rollout has been important and crucial and because we’ve been so successful, it’s time to move on to the next level of fortifying our city,” Adams grandstanded. “This puts the choice in the hands of New Yorkers. It’s imperative we’re asking them to continue to encourage their employees to get their vaccines and booster shots.”
