Jobs Over Gestures: Athletes Must Make Real Demands

Total567 Here’s what LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick, Megan Rapinoe and all the social justice reformers can do to legitimize their national-anthem kneeling, ‘I Can’t Breathe’ T-shirts and virtue-signaling tweets: Demand Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, etc., bring a significant portion of their manufacturing jobs back to the United States. I don’t trust athletes and celebrities to More

  1. Put my money where my mouth is and subscribed. Been a long time fan of both of you.

    This article is is spot on and a message that I hope everyone gets behind. This isn’t a political discussion. It’s about providing jobs to people in the country and that benefits everyone regardless of political points of view.

  2. Hey Jason,
    “Jobs Over Gestures”…brilliant! Another terrific and though-provoking piece of writing!
    The jobs and communities you describe are the ones that Pres. Obama told workers “would never come back”. Pres. Obama put VP Biden in charge of their “jobs of the future” plan.
    Joe Biden’s solution: “Anybody who can go down 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well … Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program, for God’s sake!”
    There’s your champion of organized labor…pathetic!
    How great is it that you’re giving these Mt. Olympus-like influencers the chance to help working class communities! But your words give the lie to these self-righteous phonies.
    Thanks for another chapter in the Book of Jason.
    All the best,
    Rick

  3. Since I just joined Outkick I haven’t even been to any ESPN sites or channel. This is the real deal! Please add a sports score section so this could be the true one stop shop for real and all sports news. And never let them silence you Jason you are the last true American Journalist!

  4. Jason — Dig deeper into the “LeBron school” story and here’s what you’ll find.
    — Lebron’s foundation contrbutes 25% of the dollars. Taxpayers contribute 75%.
    — Lebron gets a 50% tax credit for his contribution. So he actually contributes 12.5%
    while taxpayers contribute 88.5%.
    — Visually, the school is a shrine to Lebron, with giant images of him — implying that he is the
    savior of Akron’s underprivileged.
    — Lebron allows/encourages the public to think that he funded the school — a strategy designed to
    appease “his people,” whom has deserted twice.
    He could have used his power to transform the empty tire factories of Akron into shoe factories and given hope to “his people.” Instead he chose the glitz and glamor of Hollywood. That’s the real LeBron.

  5. I also joined because the OK team is the best and I can handle the truth about anything so keep up the straight talk and keep stating facts so even the woke snow flakes can keep up.
