Obama Joins 'Woke' NBA in Africa to Promote 'Gender Equality, Social Responsibility'
NBA Africa would help spread the left’s ideas across the globe
Former President Barack Obama will join the National Basketball Association (NBA) in Africa to promote “social responsibility” in the continent.
NBA's 'woke' gender politics will now have the support of Obama to push “greater gender equality and economic inclusion" in African nations, according to a press release by the league.
NBA also agreed to hand the Obama Foundation a minority equity stake in NBA Africa, the league’s division on the continent.
Obama said that NBA Africa would help spread the Left’s ideas across the globe.
The former president said in a Tuesday statement:
“The NBA has always been a great ambassador for the United States — using the game to create deeper connections around the world, and in Africa, basketball has the power to promote opportunity, wellness, equality, and empowerment across the continent."
“By investing in communities, promoting gender equality, and cultivating the love of the game of basketball, I believe that NBA Africa can make a difference for so many of Africa’s young people."
“I’ve been impressed by the league’s commitment to Africa, including the leadership shown by so many African players who want to give back to their own countries and communities."
"That’s why I’m proud to join the team at NBA Africa and look forward to a partnership that benefits the youth of so many countries,” Obama added.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver also added Africa has “enormous growth opportunities."
“We are honored that President Obama has become a strategic partner in NBA Africa and will support our wide-ranging efforts to grow the game of basketball on the continent,” Silver said in the release.
"In addition to his well-documented love for basketball, President Obama has a firm belief in Africa’s potential and the enormous growth opportunities that exist through sports."
"NBA Africa will benefit tremendously from his engagement.”
Silver claimed that the NBA’s interests in China are on the lines of “building relationships” between nations.
“The political science major in me believes that engagement is better than isolation,” Silver said.
"That a so-called boycott of China, taking into account legitimate criticisms of the Chinese system, won’t further the agenda of those who seek to bring about global change. Working with Chinese solely on NBA basketball has been a net plus for building relationships between two superpowers.”
But NBA seems to have a complete blind spot over the fact their products are often manufactured using slave labor by the Chinese companies.
In July, U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn warned Silver that doing business in China means he must do business with the Communist Party.
