Bank Run Hero

"No, I am not going 10,000 miles to help murder, burn, and kill other people to simply help continue the domination of the white slavemasters over dark people the world over. This is the day and age when such evil injustice must come to an end."

- Muhammad Ali (Heavyweight Champ, (1942- )
Finally, a relatively famous athlete has decided to speak out against the oppressive banking structure wreaking havoc over the entire world as it plunges a significant number of people into poverty. Eric Cantona, former European soccer star, has called for a mass withdrawal of funds from the banking system. Regardless of this man's accomplishments on the football pitch, the day he made this call makes him a hero in The National Pulse's book (watch YouTube interview here). The movement has gathered steam in Europe and many are set to withdraw their funds from their respective banks on December 7th. A bank patron's very own "Pearl Harbor" to the banks that have done so much damage to society by imposing their will without the consent of the people.

It is unlikely any American sports star would echo these sentiments or try to organize a similar movement. It is unlikey a peep of dissatisfaction will be heard from the New World Order's highly trained athletes who have been brainwashed to be docile creatures. Their aggressive nature on the playing field is an irregularity, for these athletes have been fully de-clawed from participation in the political, societal arena of free speech. Fat contracts, lucrative endorsements and promise of a posh life has kept most athletes who would normally be outspoken, quiet. These cowards must watch as society around them crumbles and must just say collectively, "At least I have mine."

Gone are the days where athletes were not afraid to speak out. Maybe today's athletes just aren't as courageous as those of yore. Muhammad Ali refused to be drafted into the Vietnam War. Ali was convicted of draft evasion and stripped of his heavyweight title. It is unlikely any of today's athletes would forego their best years to fight for principle. Most would rather make a lot of money and try and pork every skank they possibly can while their name is still in the headlines (see here, here, and here). Besides, other than trying to bang every slut they can, the only thing that really matters to today's athletes is paying the bills through very specific skills- none of which matter to the well-being of the world at large. So, you are right, Charles Barkley, you and the rest of the New World Order's best paid pets are not role models- not even close.

It is more than obvious athletes have been told in explicit terms why they are paid and what is and what isn't expected of them. What is not expected is to offer opinion on world events, ticket prices, or really anything except how they intend to help the ball club this year. Acting out like Tommie Smith and Juan Carlos did in the 1968 Olympics is out of the question. Instead, the New World Order corporate forces have substituted fake fund raisers like cancer "awareness" to give the illusion of charity and difference-making to the blind, deaf, and dumb masses. This gives the athlete the opportunity to wear pink and purple athletic gear in their support of what their boss told them to support. Larger issues like freeedom, slavery, and the ever-expanding war machine and police state are simply out of the question.

"Already, long ago from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out the military command, high civil office, legions- everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hope for just two things: bread and circuses."

-Juvenal (Roman Poet, 1st Century A.D.)

The last time an athlete took a stand on a political issue, basketball player Steve Nash spoke out against the invasion of Iraq. At the time, Nash faced resistance not only from around the league but from his own team. Teammate David "the Admiral" Robinson had a problem with it because he went to college at Annapolis and therefore pretty much believes everything the government tells him. "If it's an embarrassment to them, maybe they ought to be in another country because this is America and we're supposed to be proud of the guys we elected and put into office," said Robinson. Psst, David, FYI- most of the "guys" that have ever been elected to office in America have hated you for the color of your skin. Here at The National Pulse, we are still embarrassed by the tyrannical U.S. corporation. However, we don't think it is us that should leave, but all the liars and genocidal maniacs that killed over 1 million Iraqis.

It is refreshing to finally see a person who competed hard on the playing field and who earned the cheers of the faithful step up with courage when it really matters. However, the answer to this tyranny won't be found waiting for someone to be a hero. The solution is for each person to fully assess their patronage and decide whether that particular institution deserves to be patronized. To wait for a hero is not only futile, it is what the oppressors want.

Oh, and take all your money out of the bank while you still can. Just do it.
