      @Sigfried The Republicans, when trump was president, completely forgot about the national dept or the infrastructure problems in U.S. or the many other things. Then when Biden became president, suddenly they remembered all of these problems in U.S. I know that the Republicans aren't wrong. I also know that the Republicans talk truth to hurt the democrats, which is what seems to be happening now. It seems that the Republicans only care about U.S. when there us democratic leadership in this country and not when there's republican leadership.

      @Tim Lee Cena has "fuck you" money. Who cares if he gets cancelled. Dudes a coward for this imo. The dudes got a voice powerful enough to counter cancel culture, I mean, who tf is going to actually cancel him in the public eye for not bowing to the CCP? He could easily have still starred in films.

    • fuddyruckers3
      fuddyruckers3

      @Tim Lee I totally agree with that. I've never been in that situation, so I can't say for sure. But I'd like to believe if someone was forcing me to say something I didn't agree with, or that wasn't true I'd take the firing. At some point you have to stand up for your own beliefs, not what your handler is telling you to believe

    • Tim Lee
      Tim Lee

      @fuddyruckers3 well we live in this cancel culture. Remember what happened to former mma fighter Gina Carano for the IG post and got fired from Mandalorian unless she apologized? Cena was probably in the similar situation and didn't want to deal with cancel culture crap as well

    • fuddyruckers3
      fuddyruckers3

      He should've stood up for his own beliefs and lost his job instead of being a sell out. It's not like he doesn't already have plenty of money. At least he should have enough.. but maybe he is as stupid as he looks in this apology and blew it all on useless crap 🤔

    9:40 I gotta say though; banning students from in-person classes if they're not vaccinated is REALLY f'd up. It's truly a "2nd class citizen" type of discrimination and almost certainly illegal (or should be!)....surprised Phil didn't stop to actually talk about that...... If you're vaccinated, why should you care - or have the right to care! - about what unvaccinated people do or where they go? You shouldn't even think about them! Don't you trust your shot?

    Phil, you're better than this. You know better then anyone that these things are almost always more involved than appearances. Regarding Jon Cena, how do we know that his contact with the studio didn't include a clause relating to actions considered damaging to the studio or movie and was told he would be in violation of his contract if he didn't apologize? Then his vague apology makes sense, because he was doing the minimum to not be in violation of his contract without fully retracting what he said. He's never been afraid to voice an unpopular opinion if he believed what he was saying and it's generally a good person. Maybe I'm biased because I'm a Vet & have experience with all the selfless work he's done on behalf of veterans, but I think he's earned enough leeway to at least reserve judgment until we know all the facts. And jumping to a full blown conclusion about him as a person, is very out of character for you. But that being said, you're entitled to your opinion and I still love to face and will see you tomorrow.

      And if they do things to celebrities who are openly against them, wouldn't that just turn more people against them? I already don't like China, and if they continue being so unlikeable, that's only going to create more animosity towards them. Although a couple people might not become a problem, but if people start pulling their businesses from there, and stop outsourcing, China would fall flat on their face and face a major crisis. Don't know what it would take for these companies to do so, but surely, if China starts doing crazy shit like the nazis in Germany, they would have to do something, or face a bottom of the ditch reputation in every country other than China? A company like Supreme that lives and dies by their reoutation and marketing would absolutely avoid tarnishing their reputation beyond repair.

    Cena didn't really have a choice. If he said nothing, WWE would have frozen his deals (movie/matches) and he's spent many years building that up. I'm not a fan of wrestling (not since the 90's anyways) but if Hogan/HHH/HBK was in the same situation, you know they'd definitely do the same thing, rather than go against WWE.

Where do you think the saying "papers please" comes from? Are you ignoring the message because of the messenger or the message itself? How about government officials suggesting to businesses can ask for proof of vaccination to be allowed to enter? Did you forget that NY stadium is making 2 sections. those vaccinated and those not vaccinated? Oh if only we had examples of this type of behavior in history we could look back on to see the outcome. EXCEPT we do. the USA's own racist history with segregation and yes NAZI GERMANY. My god do some basic historical research before making yourself look like an idiot in front of a million people.

    It’s funny that Marjorie Taylor is complaining about “vaccine passports” being discriminatory considering that they function on a similar ideology to normal passports.
