Capitalize on Capitol Hill! Profit from Portland! Get Bigger Returns on Your Riots!

 

If you’ve been following the NBA, you know that the NBA Players Association and the League got together and agreed on 29 messages that can be placed on players’ jerseys – messages like: Black Lives Matter, Say Their Names, and (I’m not making this up) Group Economics.

Companies have been backing Black Lives Matter with big donations, but that’s small potatoes when they could incorporate those same NBA messages in their product names and labeling. Woke merchandise will fly off the shelves. Bring the magic of Madison Avenue into the streets and make a statement with the products you purchase. Imagine the street cred you’ll enjoy when you whip out your bottle of “Hands Up Antiperspirant”!

And how about these fine products and services:

  • Power to the People Electric Company
  • Say Their Names Memory Booster
  • See Us Eyeglasses
  • Speak Up Hearing Aids
  • Love Us Online Dating Service
  • Just-Ice Diamonds
  • E-Quality Online Shopping
  • Stand Up Crutches
  • Si Se Puede (Yes We Can) Mason Jars
  • Just-Ice Now Instant Ice Makers
  • Hear Us Bullhorns
  • I Am A Man ED Treatment

    They ought to make them wear that one.

    I’d go look at the list, but I’m already boycotting the NBA. Not for the BLM nonsense. For kowtowing to Xi. They can move operations to the PRC for all I care.

    The NBA players demonstrated that they don’t care about justice when they refused to back Daryl Morey’s tweet supporting Hong Kong.  Their messages are as hollow as their chests.

    BLM, Antifa, and their fellow rioters, arsonists, and looters don’t believe in justice either.  Justice can’t be a one-way street – justice for me but none for you, for the cop I just blinded with my laser, or for the poor slob who owns the small business I torched.

    The companies that contribute to BLM aren’t buying justice, they hope to buy off the woke Left.

    The Mayors and Governors who pander to these thugs and make excuses for their serial injustices clearly don’t believe in justice either.

    So, this post is in “honor” of the way in which each profits from their own special brand of hypocrisy:

    • The NBA players who keep their nice, Chinese-subsidized salaries while Hong Kong is ground under the CCP’s heel
    • The rioters who kill, rape, loot, and destroy in the name of justice
    • The corporations that bankroll BLM and subject their employees to “antiracist,” Maoist, hate sessions
    • The politicians who morally preen while their cities burn

    May they all receive the justice they so richly deserve.

    Actually, putting blm/antifa symbols on products might be a way of discovering what average Americans think of these groups.  It would be be very interesting if the sales of such branded products took a nose dive. Or increased.

    Here’s a slice of a New York Post op ed by Phil Mushnick on social justice messages we won’t be seeing on any NBA player’s jersey:

    Reader Bob Wilson suggests the players could wear jerseys reading, “Free Hong Kong,” but that would only upset the NBA, and its players who can’t afford to mess with the sneaker and apparel money as stitched and glued by shack-dwelling slave-wagers in Red China.

    “Free the Slaves in Nigeria and the Congo” would be a good. Both African countries still enslave blacks, but the BLM movement and its affiliates aren’t interested. They’re working on freeing American slaves, though that freedom was won in a war that cost 650,000 mostly white lives 157 years ago.

    Then how about this: “Stop the Slaughter! — B.H.”

    B.H. would be Brandon Hendricks, the 17-year-old Monroe High grad who planned to attend college on a basketball scholarship. He died late Sunday night, gunned down in The Bronx, for decades the borough where kids are shot and stabbed as a matter of no surprise….  Only now it’s much worse. Last week 86 people were shot in NYC. It’s open season, as black-on-black crime has exploded.

    And what has Mayor Bill de Blasio done about it? He has cut $1 billion from the police budget.

    Richard,

    Any shred of dignity that the NBA ever had just got vaporized. Idiots.

    Nice post.
