Nobody takes LeBron James as a candidate for MENSA. For a very good living he puts a ball through a net. People, for some reason, pay big money to be bored by this act being repeated time and time again. It’s not like football, which is exciting land acquisition or defense. Or even tedious baseball, which has some grace. Basketball seems to draw people like James, who are good at their work but cretins in other areas. Thus, to listen to James on politics is like hearing Vladimir Horowitz on the kazoo, when he has a cold, in the rain.
FNC: “LeBron James tweeting ‘you’re next’ at one of the officers who responded to the fatal shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio is part of a ‘pattern’ of behavior by left-wingers, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told “Fox News Primetime” Wednesday. Cruz noted that James, 36, essentially ignored the fact that Columbus police released body camera footage that showed Bryant attacking another female with a knife. The Texas lawmaker added that the Ohio authorities are right to investigate the shooting further, but that fact doesn’t absolve the rush to judgement from high-profile people like James.”
“The left consistently goes after, attacks and demonizes police officers … often before the facts are known, often before there is any evidence of what happened,” Cruz told media, “but their immediate reaction, whenever there is an incident, is that police officers is in the wrong.
“And in this instance, ‘you’re next’ could certainly be interpreted by some, even, as a call for violence. I think it was a grossly irresponsible message for LeBron James to send out. The woman who was killed was wielding a knife, was violent, appeared to be threatening the [lives] of others. It may well be, on an investigation, that this police officer saved the life of a potential victim of a knife attack and we shouldn’t jump to conclusions.
“The facts should be determined, but the left doesn’t care about the facts, they care about demonizing and attacking law enforcement and I think it’s wrong,” Cruz said.
Trying to distract from his ignorant blunder, James deleted the “you’re next” tweet and replaced it with an incoherent sob story stumbling from cliché to platitude and back around again to inane pieties….And, he scores a three point trite shot!
ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail! 🙏🏾✊🏾🤎👑
