Anthony Fauci and Joe Biden are sticking to their guns, trying to convince Americans the United States needs a COVID vaccine mandate.

This comes despite SCOTUS ruling against the unconstitutional measure and mounting data showing the ineffectiveness of the vaccine on the Omicron variant.

Now, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has joined the debate and you won’t believe what this mountain of a man had to say.

On his podcast, Shaquille O’Neal publicly came out against vaccine mandates.

While debating CBS News reporter, Nischelle Turner, the four-time NBA Championship winner insisted no one should be fired for refusing the COVID vax jab.

O’Neal said, “Look, I encourage everybody to be safe and take care of your family, I do. But there’s still some people that don’t wanna take it. And you shouldn’t have to be forced to take something you don’t want.”

Turner replied, “I don’t think people are being forced to take . . . Well, there are some . . . There are, I mean, listen we have a mandate at CBS.”

O’Neal countered, “That’s forced. […] It is forced. Because if the man don’t take it, the man gonna get fired.”

Turner continued interrupting the King of the Post, claiming that a mandate isn’t “force.”

But Shaq gets it.

He explained to the reporter, that if you’re fired for not doing something – that has zero relation to your actual job – that is, indeed, force.

Let’s check the dictionary to see if it’s O’Neal or Turner who scores in this contest.

Force is defined as, “coercion or compulsion, especially with the use or threat of violence.”

It seems Mr. Webster is calling a foul on Turner and siding with the Laker and Magic legend on this one.

Not that Shaq would hit the free throws anyway . . .

But what he lacked at the foul line, the 15-time All-Star makes up for in common sense and willingness to speak the truth.

While NBA stars like LeBron James suck up to the Red Chinese and another former Lakers Center, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar believes you should be forced to inject medicine into your body against your will – O’Neal is siding with American people and freedom.

This is a personal issue for the former NBA MVP.

The National Basketball Association is not paying unvaccinated players for missed games.

Meanwhile, they’re also forcing anyone without both shots and a booster to get a COVID test before each and every time they suit up for a game.

Hopefully, more influencer stars like Shaq will take a stand against these unconstitutional and invasive policies.
