According to a report from ESPN, the Miami Heat are planning to unleash COVID-sniffing dogs to screen fans before they attend games. Sounds like a joke, considering the well-documented inaccuracies of cotton swab COVID testing, but they didn’t let logic stop their ignorance.
For a league that routinely called former president Donald Trump a dictator, dogs patrolling a facility sounds awfully hypocritical. The NBA is setting the tone for their true long-term goal: Mandatory vaccinations.

Oh my. 😂
Fans won’t be allowed to attend games, according to their new protocols, until they pass the “sniff” test. It’s bizarre, but as you can see in the tweet above–people aren’t taking this news as seriously as they should.
Sounds like a joke at first, right? It’s almost like a protocol Dr. Evil would enforce at his death layer. But season ticket holders are about to sign waivers that COVID-sniffing dogs are somehow qualified to kick a paying customer out the building.
We’re consistently moving the requirements and restricting human rights as far as we’re willing to go. Considering fans are about to fork over hundreds or even thousands of dollars to attend games, you’d think they’d care about their own rights. What’s most important for us to understand is that the NBA’s audience is predominantly liberal, and they fundamentally don’t worry about their freedom. Most fans of the NBA believe Adam Silver and our government are plenty qualified to lead us–no matter the regulations. A COVID-sniffing dog is just the latest idea someone in a suit has whipped up. A perfect plan to show Twitter users how much they care about public health.
Where does this head?
It’s actually quite obvious. The NBA wants to ease their audience into compliance for mandatory vaccinations. How can they possibly get this done, you ask? Well, all they have to do is make a statement that public health is their main concern, and the only way to ensure our safety is if they know every last customer has their vaccination card.
We’re quite certain Bill Gates will get involved.
Check out how embarrassingly clueless Mathew Jafarian is, who serves as the Miami Heat’s VP for business strategy:
“If you think about it, detection dogs are not that new,” he said. “You’ve seen them in airports, they’ve been used in mission-critical situations by the police and the military. We’ve used them at the arena for years to detect explosives.”

Among policies: food won’t be sold at the AAA yet, COVID-19 Detection Dogs will be at entrances, health screening will occur, masks (duh), no bags, cashless transactions.
“When you think about it,” huh? This is how the majority of our media operates these days. Instead of letting us think for ourselves and draw our own conclusions, they’ve got us covered. They lay out their own thought processes and protocols, and then they implement them. No fan or free-thinking American gets a word in. If you happen to express a dissenting opinion, you’re chastised for not caring about public safety.
It’s a vicious cycle that leaves half the country feeling betrayed.
Is the NBA watchable for everyone? No, but more than half this country turned away from the sport because of instances like this one. Anyone with common sense can see that COVID-sniffing dogs are a waste of resources and overall too invasive. Unfortunately, moves like this are made in all shapes and sizes to appease their true audience and money making machine:
