NORTH CAROLINA—(BASN) — Writer Stephen Leacock once stated that “Advertisement is the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.”

So, parents beware.

Because ESPN is advertising more than just Gatorade and sneakers these days. In fact, the other night, I was watching ESPN when an intriguing commerical captured my attention. In my mind, I’m thinking this must be a new commerical from Nike.
No, maybe it’s Reebok. Or even Adidas.
But to my surprise, it was the latest advertisement for Scientology.
Scientology??? (WTF) Get the hell out of here!!!
When did this science fiction cult become mainstream and when did it start targeting athletes and sports fans!!!
Before you know it, Black athletes all over the world will be brainwashed and saluting a big statue of L. Ron Hubbard and thanking him for making a free throw, catching a touchdown pass, or hitting a home run.
It’s like the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. They are everywhere. There is even an occult castle in Harlem to steal the souls of Black people.
Somebody better start reading some of the writings of John Henrik Clarke and study the works of Egyptologist Dr. Yosef Ben Jochannan as well as resurrect some old Malcolm X tapes and chase these “devils” off the block.
I suggest everybody go check out ABC’s Martin Bashir’s interview with Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis, who stormed out of the interview when Bashir asked him about the alien Xenu and volcanoes before we find ourselves drinking the cool aid and jumping on couches like Tom Cruise.
So parents beware, they are selling more than sneakers and sports drinks these days. It’s a new form of colonization.
This time they are going after the souls of sports…..The Black Athlete….
If we are not careful, some superstar athlete will become the face of this new cult and have our children following this crap.
As Dr. John Henrik Clarkes stated so brilliantly ” Religion is the organization of spirituality into something that became the hand maiden of conquerors. Nearly all religions were brought to people and imposed on people by conquerors, and used as the framework to control their minds.”
Therefore, let’s teach our children our true history so they will not fall victims to these”wolves in sheep clothing.”
Because as Dr. Ben stated “African-Americans have not yet learn that no other people have continued worshipping another’s God, especially their slave master’s god or gods and freed themselves from cultural and physical genocide.”
