Ronaldo Coke Rejection Prompts Calls For Other Sports Stars To Ditch Junk Sponsors

Health experts say more sports personalities could help combat global obesity epidemic

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo’s public rejection of Coca-cola this week has prompted health campaigners to call for other sports stars to step up and ditch junk food and drink sponsors.

As highlighted in the video below, Coke is massively unhealthy, and its presence as a sponsor of the Euro 2020 tournament is akin to a tobacco company plastering its logos all over the Olympics.

The London Telegraph reports that Ronaldo’s small action, along with other players such as Italy’s Manuel Locatelli has shone a spotlight on those who are still endorsing Coke and other junk products.

Two of England’s most successful footballers Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford are “ambassadors” for Coke, which basically means they make millions by appearing in adverts and sharing the brand on social media.

Kane is also on the take from Cadbury, makers of chocolate.

It’s also particularly hypocritical of Rashford, because he simultaneously campaigns for healthy eating:

Even Ronaldo himself starred in Coke advertisements when he was younger, and presumably more controllable and less aware.

The Telegraph reports:

Caroline Cerny of the Obesity Health Alliance, a coalition of more than 40 major health organisations, said: “Ronaldo’s defiant stance against being associated with a sugary drink could mark a turning point and we hope other sports stars will similarly refuse to be used as walking adverts for junk food and other unhealthy products. It’s time to break the link between unhealthy brands and sports sponsorship so children are not exposed to a flood of marketing when they watch or play their favourite sports.”

The report also notes:

Dr James Davies MP, a member of the Health and Social Care select committee and a vice-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Obesity, said: “It’s refreshing to see key figures in sport highlighting the need for healthier lifestyles.”

Coca Cola brags on its own website about how “Sport & Entertainment partnerships are part of the DNA of The Coca-Cola Company”:

It is literally the longest standing sponsor of the Olympic Games, dating back to 1928.

The question is, why when its fucking poison is one of the biggest contributors to worldwide obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, kidney diseases, non-alcoholic liver disease, tooth decay and cavities, and gout.

After the Coke snub, maybe some sports stars could address Nike and other sports brands who make millions from sponsorship exposure yet still use forced labor to manufacture their products.

Like parasites, these massive multinational companies will latch onto anything successful to push their junk on the world. They also do it particularly insidiously by promoting a fictional world, falsely suggesting the cream of sports talent love their products, while the reality behind it all is that they’re being bought off or even duped into selling pure shit to young people who idolise them in exchange for cold hard corporate cash.

MSNBC: “Christian Nationalist” Supreme Court “Sided With The Virus” By Shooting Down Vaccine Mandate

Justices “should all just have right-wing talk radio shows”

Published

The Supreme Court’s decision not to uphold Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for private businesses sparked anger and vitriol on the left, with MSNBC broadcasting programming declaring that the court has “sided with the virus” for not approving compulsory injections.

Joy Reid, yes her again, opened her broadcast by stating “the U.S. Supreme Court siding with the virus today by blocking the Biden administration’s rule requiring vaccine mandates for companies employing more than 100 people.”

She later added “I think they’re ideologues. I think they’re right-wing ideologues I think they’re sort of doing sort of a Christian Nationalist version of you know whatever it is the Supreme Court used to do.”

Reid further proclaimed that the conservative justices on the court “don’t really care if this causes lots of people to die, clearly.”

She also asked “Have they not just simply stated by their actions that they are more in favor of right-wing politics, the kind of DeSantis style right-wing politics than they are in favor of saving lives?”

Reid further declared that the justices “should all just have right-wing talk radio shows,” adding “they are not justices in the great tradition of Supreme Court justices. They’re just politicians. As far as I’m concerned, I see nothing about what they’re doing that I can possibly respect.”

Watch:

All of that is quite an about turn coming from such a previously stringent anti-vaxxer like Reid.

Reid also doesn’t seem to care about saving lives when it suits her politics.

Other extreme leftists were also distraught that the Supreme Court didn’t approve forced vaccination:

    Ikea Says It Will Cut Sick Pay For The Unvaccinated

    ‘Our approach to COVID-related absences has evolved’

    Furniture retailer Ikea has announced that it intends to cut sick pay for any staff who remain unvaccinated and need to self isolate if they test positive or come into contact with someone who tests positive for COVID.

    The Daily Mail reports that the Swedish company, which employs some 10,000 people in the UK alone intends to slash sick pay to the legal minimum of just £93.35 per week for anyone who is unvaccinated.

    That would mean a cut of more than a three quarters of the company’s usual wages for workers.

    “Unvaccinated co-workers without mitigating circumstances who have been identified as close contacts of a positive case will be paid statutory sick pay,” an Ikea spokesperson told reporters.

    “We appreciate that this is an emotive topic and all circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis, therefore anyone in doubt or concerned about their situation is encouraged to speak to their manager,” the spokesperson added.

    The company announced that the policy will only apply to unvaccinated workers with “high levels of absence.”

    The company claims that the move is prompted by recent staff shortages owing to many having to isolate.

    “Following the vaccine rollout and changes in the government’s isolation requirements, our approach to COVID-related absences evolved from September 20, 2021—an approach developed with our social partners and national co-worker committee,” the company further declared.

    Ikea also recently offered workers paid leave to go and get vaccinated.

    As we noted yesterday, oncology professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital, University of London has warned that British people have become obsessed with taking lateral flow COVID tests and that “it is tantamount to national self-harm,” because it is causing millions to miss work and isolate even though they have no symptoms.

    “Hospitals, transport networks, our postal and rubbish collection services and hundreds of thousands of British businesses are now being crippled because of a mania over checking people for an infection that they may have no symptoms for,” Dalgleish urges.

    Noting that the Omicron variant is very mild, but very ‘rampant’ with isolation doing little to combat its spread, the professor further describes self imposed lockdowns as “insanity”.

    25-Year-Old Soccer Star Suddenly Collapses, Dies During Training

    Marcos Menaldo complained of suffering breathing difficulties.

    A 25-year-old Guatemalan soccer star collapsed during training and tragically died shortly after being rushed to hospital.

    Marcos Menaldo, a defender who played for Deportivo Marquense, reported suffering breathing difficulties during the training session on Monday.

    “The tragedy occurred at the Marquesa de la Ensenada Stadium where Menaldo received emergency CPR treatment on the pitch in San Marcos before being transferred to the Hospital de Especialidades where he died,” reports the Mirror.

    Menaldo was a fan favorite after leading his team to the second division title last month.

    “A young, dynamic and jovial person, this happens to him. It is quite strong and shocking because you lose not only a player, you lose a friend,” remarked Hernan Maldonado, Deportivo’s club president.

    “They transferred him to the assistance centre where they did everything possible. But unfortunately, the death was confirmed,” he added.

    The report notes that Menaldo’s death tragically followed that of Croatian footballer Marin Cacic, who died in similar circumstances just before Christmas after suddenly collapsing during training.

    The 23-year-old was diagnosed with heart failure before being rushed to a nearby hospital but died on December 23rd.

    Back in November, German newspaper Berliner Zeitung published a report seeking to answer why an “unusually large number of professional and amateur soccer players have collapsed recently.”

    Other footballers to develop sudden heart or breathing problems in recent weeks and months include Sherrif Tiraspol winger Adama Traore, Sheffield United’s John Fleck, and Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof.

    FC Barcelona’s Sergio Agüero, the 33-year-old striker who had to be withdrawn from a match after 41 minutes suffering from dizziness and breathing difficulties, was also recently forced into early retirement.

    As we previously highlighted, other professional athletes have also recently suffered similar health problems, including 24-year-old Slovak hockey player Boris Sádecký, who tragically died after collapsing on the ice during a match last year.

    28-year-old bodybuilder Jake Kazmarek also died “unexpectedly” four days after taking the COVID jab.

    After questions began to swirl about whether vaccine side-effects were playing a role in the spate of incidents, media outlets reassured the public that that this was merely a “coincidence.”

    That didn’t stop ex-England pro Matt Le Tissier from calling for a full investigation.

    “It’s been very concerning for me watching the sport that I love and I played for 17 years…in all that time that I played I never once saw any footballer leave the pitch because of heart issues,” said Le Tissier.

    “Now I’m sorry, but if anybody can look at what’s happening now in the world of sport and say it’s normal for all of these people to be having heart issues, in football matches, cricket matches, basketball matches, any sport you wish, these people, the amount of people that are suffering is going through the roof,” he added.

    During a viral podcast with Joe Rogan which was subsequently censored by YouTube, Dr. Peter McCullough warned that soccer players collapsing could be linked to vaccine-induced myocarditis.

    McCullough warned that myocarditis has become at least 50% more common than predicted by US public health ‘experts.’

    During a live radio show in the UK, ex-footballer Trevor Sinclair mentioned a potential link to vaccines, but he was cut off shortly after beginning his statement.
