NBA star Kyrie Irving, who bravely refused to get the Covid vaccine, is receiving ire from NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Kareem went after Kyrie after Irving shared a video from Alex Jones on his social media. In the video, which is from 2002, Jones warns that the “new world order” plans to release “viruses and plagues upon us.” The video was posted with the caption “Alex Jones tried to warn us.”

Irving has also been an outspoken critic of the Covid vaccine calling the vaccine mandates “one of the biggest violations of human rights in history.”
Kareem attacked Kyrie on Sunday via his Substack, “Alex Jones is one of the most despicable human beings alive and to associate with him means you share his stench.”
“We might have just left him alone to stew in his own gelatinous ignorance,” Abdul-Jabbar continued. “Rich and famous people get away with saying dumb things all the time because their money isolates them from consequences.”
“When I look at some of the athletes who have used their status to actually improve society– Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Muhammad Ali, Bill Russell, Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe, and more — it becomes clear how much Irving has tarnished the reputations of all athletes who strive to be seen as more than dumb jocks,” Abdul-Jabbar opined.

Kareem raises some interesting points. It is true rich and famous people are insulated from the consequences of saying dumb things.
However, the reality is that Kyrie wasn’t isolated from any consequences for his decision to not get vaccinated since he lost a reported $17 million dollars because of it, and recently revealed he turned down a 4 year $100 million+ contract because of his vaccination status.
Kareem fails to realize he’s a rich and famous person who lives such a privileged and ignorant life he’s able to be convinced Alex Jones is one of the worst people in society.
Why are we supposed to hate Alex Jones? Because he spread a ridiculous lie about the Sandy Hook tragedy that caused grieving parents to be unfairly harassed. Obviously, Jones should be remorseful for this, which he is.
Compare that to another member of society Kareem is happy to support, Hillary Clinton. Kareem endorsed Hilary for president in 2016. Hillary who has been married to an accused rapist for decades, reportedly tried to silence his victims, and as a Senator promoted lies that led us into a war in Iraq that caused approximately a million innocent Iraqis to be killed.

If Kyrie shares in Alex Jones’ “stench” for posting a video of his on social media, what stench does Kareem share for endorsing a literal war criminal for President?
The self-righteous piety that liberals like Kareem carry with them constantly is entirely superficial. Kareem, like most liberals in America, doesn’t actually have any real moral foundation. Their self-righteousness is merely a collection of virtue signals meant to alert the people around them to which political tribe they belong to.
Hating Alex Jones and supporting Hillary is simply a way for Kareem to show he’s “one of the good guys.”
In his attack on Kyrie, Kareem also mentioned athletes in the past who’ve stood up for something and made a difference in society. He wrote, “When I look at some of the athletes who have used their status to actually improve society—Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Muhammad Ali, Bill Russel, Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe, and more—it becomes clear how much Irving has tarnished the reputations of all athletes who strive to be seen as more than dumb jocks.”
Losing millions of dollars for standing on your principles is a courageous act, blindly repeating establishment talking points about how much you hate Alex Jones is intellectually lazy and morally weak.
If Kareem wants to be like the athletes in the past who made a positive difference in society he should stop attacking Kyrie and ask him for advice.
