Does NASCAR have a death wish?

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 1/7/2022 7:05:12 AM

A pair of reports yesterday lead me to question the sanity of the management of NASCAR, the privately held giant of the sport of stock car racing. (snip) NASCAR has officially canceled driver Brandon Brown’s sponsorship deal with the “Let’s Go Brandon” cryptocurrency purveyor. (snip) The entire “Let’s go Brandon” craze began at a NASCAR track (snip) one of the largest LGBT Chambers within the region pushing for equitable change within the workplace and marketplace, announced Wednesday that NASCAR will become the organization’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion partner for the 2022 term.

I’m not a fan, but I can see NASCAR going the way of the dodo bird with this bit of wokery.

I am asking the same thing as this article. I have a letter going to each Board member of NASCAR. IF they think that their "wokeness" will retain fans, they are wrong. It was hard enough to see BLM car going around the track. I'm certain they are getting harassed by 10 people who appear to be 100,000's (Like what Rush would talk about when they would do that to his sponsors until he was able to prove it was 10 people) Because they let President Trump drive in the "Beast" around the Daytona 500 track and the fans loved it. To Leftists anything that has to do with Trump must bow to repent. It's so obvious but I think they are so scared to stand up against it and by doing to they are getting separated from their fan base and THAT is the endgame goal.

I've been a Fan for my Adult Life and attended many Bristol Races when we lived in TN. I can't imagine those Fans wanting anything to do with any LGBT organization. When they read this article in their Local Papers they are going to be furious. If the Powers That Be, who made this decision, think that this is the end of the LGBrandon thingy, they are in for a Huge surprise at the next Race! The fans are the ones who were chanting Let go Brandon, loud and clear, because they wanted to be Heard! They wanted to express their feelings. I can't wait to see how they express their feelings about NASCAR hooking up with the LGBTQ Bunch (If they show up at the Track at all)! These Fans do not wear Suits to the Track, they come in Shorts, Shirts with their favorite Driver's Name all over it, and they're pulling a Cooler! They're there for the Day to have fun! These are good Christian people who love God and Country! The next Race should be a Doozie!! Expect to see a lot of SIGNS expressing their "Feelings"!

How long until NASCAR sponsors and celebrates the first transgender driver sponsored by RuPauls Drag Race? NASCAR wokeness will do to NASCAR what kneeling did to the NFL. They will become more interested in diversity and inclusion than what made them successful: racing and fun.

There is a disconnect between the team owners and drivers and those running NASCAR, Inc.The owners and drivers are a conservative lot while the corporate pinheads have been pandering to the Left since the Obama Administration. Recall when the Kaepernick shenanigans began infecting other sports, several team owners, most notably Richard Petty and Richard Childress, lowered the boom and told their team members that anyone who kneels during the Anthem would be fired on the spot. NASCAR Inc needs to be careful.Tony Stewart has planted the seeds for a rival series, SRX. If NASCAR pushes too far left many teams could bolt to SRX full time.

Brown should have said to the reporter, "They are NOT saying Lets Go Brandon." That's what most NASCAR drivers of yesteryear would have said to her. NASCAR's management and many drivers have gone woke. NASCAR will never again be what it once was. Liberals, progressives and socialists have infiltrated, infested and polluted almost everything in the Umited States. For decades their infilitration has been devious, deceptive, slow, steady, and by stealth. Like Communists, they are masters of deceit.

Pushing the gay and diverse life on the type of people who enjoy racing on mostly southern tracks is a marketing move that will go down in history with New Coke. I was a rabid fan for years and never missed a race at Charlotte until NASCAR went hollywood, built glitzy facilities and drove ticket prices up from $12 to whatever they are now. Death wish is a good term, they are dooming themselves.

FTA: The France family that founded and still owns NASCAR reportedly are billionaires. Well maybe this explains why the nascar organization doesn't care if they alienate their fan base. Empty stadiums and lower TV ratings won't hurt the France family, it may lead to the loss of jobs for "the little people" but that family is set for life.

Booster Bust: Medical Establishment Changes
Its Mind

Posted by Magnante 1/13/2022 3:23:25 AM Post Reply
There is a tectonic shift underway in the medico-scientific establishment: they are starting to walk back boosters. The first indication of this dramatic change of attitude came from the United Kingdom last week. On January 7, Reuters ran a wire titled UK Says 4th COVID Jabs Not Needed for Now As Booster Effect Lasts. That piece featured the following sentence in its opening paragraph: “there is no need for now for people to have a fourth shot, British health officials said on Friday.” (snip) A mere day later, Bloomberg put out an article titled Repeat Booster Shots Spur European Warning on Immune-System Risks.

On Monday, Project Veritas released documents showing that an organization called EcoHealth Alliance approached the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (aka DARPA) seeking funding for its research into SARS viruses in rats, only to be turned down because of DARPA’s gain of function concerns. EcoHealth then turned to Fauci’s NIAID, which seemingly did research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology that led to COVID’s spread throughout the world. When quizzed about these documents before the Senate, Fauci denied the charges but, if you listen carefully, he denied a strawman of his own making. Monday’s bombshell was that DARPA refused to accept EcoHealth’s proposal for bat virus research in China.

Here is some number-crunching. Using natural immunity as a base and the fully vaccinated to mean two mRNA shots, we can conclude the following: An unassailable stat from the Israelis, which made Fauci change his guidance from "if you are fully vaccinated, you will not catch it" to "if you are fully vaccinated, you can still catch it and spread it," was that the fully vaccinated in Israel were 6–13 times more likely to catch the D variant than the naturally immune population. And the first decent-sized sample regarding omicron shows that the fully vaccinated are 2.61 times more likely to catch omicron than the D variant.

Burhan Chowdhury of Hamtramck, a community about six miles north of Detroit, admittedly fell behind in yard maintenance after he was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes in 2019. His overgrown property prompted local officials to subpoena Chowdhury. In now-viral footage of the Zoom court hearing on Jan. 10, Chowdhury’s breathing appeared labored as Judge Alexis G.

Researchers from Oregon State University announced that certain compounds with cannabis are able to block the virus responsible for COVID-19 from penetrating human cells. The study, led by Richard van Breemen of Oregon State's Global Hemp Innovation Center, College of Pharmacy, and Linus Pauling Institute, was published Monday in the Journal of Natural Products. A pair of cannabinoid acids were found to bond with the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and block a vital part of the process that allows the virus to infect people, van Breemen said. "We identified several cannabinoid ligands and ranked them by affinity to the spike protein," van Breemen said.

CNN’s ratings took a nosedive by a massive 90 percent both overall and in the all-important demographic coveted by advertisers in the first week of the new year. The Jeff Zucker-led cable news network averaged just 548,000 viewers during the week of Jan. 3—a major drop from the nearly 2.7 million viewers for the same week in 2021, according to Nielsen ratings.
