The Blaze reported that UFC star Jorge Masvidal slammed disgraced former NFL player Colin Kaepernick or praising Fidel Castro.
Jorge Masvidal is a Cuban American UFC fighter who opposed the communist regime of Cuba. Masvidal called it a “killing machine.” Masvidal shared a messaged on social media that reads, “American leftists who know nothing about real oppression & communism wear images of Castro… while Cubans living in the horrors of communism and real oppression are waving the American flag.” The post includes a photo from 2016 of Kaepernick wearing a t-shirt with Fidel Castro. Masvidal added, “Know ur history and facts cowards like this fool should be sent to live in Cuba see what they say after a day there.”
More from The Blaze:
When asked about wearing a t-shirt with an oppressive dictator on it, Kaepernick claimed that he praised Castro for his “investment in education” and “investment in universal health care… I agree with the investment in education,” the former NFL quarterback told reporters. “I also agree with the investment in free universal health care as well as the involvement in helping end apartheid in South Africa. …I would hope that everybody agrees those things are good things. And trying to push the false narrative that I was a supporter of the oppressive things that he did is just not true.”
“One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system,” Kaepernick continued. “Which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that.”
Kaepernick was poised to educate the US on its oppressive history, then he wore a Fidel Castro shirt. #irony pic.twitter.com/M2KzSoNkbS

NEXT STORY: Dem Lawmaker Who Fled State Tests Positive for COVID, Now He Wants Biden to Institute a Nationwide Indoor Mask Mandate
Three of the Texas Democratic have reportedly tested positive for coronavirus after fleeing Texas to protest an elections integrity bill, according to Western Journal.
Now one Democratic Texas legislator, Rep. Gene Wu, has taken to Twitter to demand a national mask mandate. He wrote, “I assume that everyone ‘whistling past the graveyard’ and laughing about Democratic members testing positive have already been fully vaccinated and have no complaints about mandatory masking provisions again.” He continued, “Thank you for all the comments concerning masking. I’ll forward your request to Congress and the White House to ask that we reinstitute a national masking requirement.”
I feel ashamed.
You're right, I should have been wearing a mask indoors.
I will personally ask VP Harris and President Biden to institute a nationwide mask mandate for all indoor activities.
Thank you. You made this possible. https://t.co/MIsvtHSfOF

NEXT STORY: Federal Judge Rules DACA Unlawful
In Texas, a federal judge ordered an end to an Obama-era program that prevented the deportations of some immigrants brought into the United States as children, according to Western Journal.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen ruled in favor of Texas and eight other conservative states that had sued to halt the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Hanen is barring the processing of new applications. This reportedly limits Biden’s ability to keep the program in place despite his campaign promises. This is the second ruling by a federal judge in Texas stopping Biden’s immigration plans.
More from Western Journal:
Biden has already proposed legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without authorization. He also ordered agencies to make efforts to preserve the program… Supporters of DACA, including those who argued before Hanen to save it, have said a law passed by Congress is necessary to provide permanent relief. Hanen has said Congress must act if the U.S. wants to provide the protections in DACA to recipients commonly known as “Dreamers.”
Hanen’s ruling came after he held a nearly 3 1/2 hour court hearing Dec. 22 on DACA’s fate… The states argued that former President Barack Obama never had the authority in 2012 to create a program like DACA because it circumvented Congress. The states also argued the program drains their educational and healthcare resources. Suing alongside Texas were Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia — states that all had Republican governors or state attorneys general.
NEXT STORY: Nancy Pelosi Made Millions in Big Tech Stocks That She Regulates – Greenwald
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made millions of dollars by investing money into the stock market on companies she helps regulate, according to Newsmax investigative report by Glenn Greenwald.
Over the last 17 years, Pelosi’s wealth has reportedly increased to $115 million from $41 million. Most of her and her husband Paul’s wealth is due to “lucrative decisions about when to buy and sell tech stocks,” the report adds. Newsmax continues, “Over the last two years, almost 75% of the trading done by the Pelosis, more than $33 million, has been in Big Tech. Major legislation concerning the industry during the same time frame has been pending before the House, controlled by the committees that Pelosi oversees.”
Is there a conflict of interest? Greenwald says there is. As one example, buying and selling in Apple alone accounted for 17.7% of the Pelosis’ overall trading volume.
Pelosi is accused of having at least one private conversation with Apple CEO Tim Cook during the same period of time, reportedly discussing how pending legislation to reform Silicon Valley could have an impact. Pelosi is reportedly the sixth wealthiest member of Congress. Read the full story at Newsmax.

Obviously what happened to George Floyd should never happen anywhere!!! That said, objectively speaking, given his history I’m not sure turning him into a deity and a role model for our children is exactly the right idea either.”
