Lebron Comes Out Against NBA GM’s Pro-Hong Kong Tweet, ‘Negative’ Effects of Free Speech

Not the best look…

One man voiced his opinion about the Hong Kong-China fiasco taking place overseas and an entire sports league went bananas. Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey merely tweeted that he supports the protesters and now he has become a pariah.

Anti-Trump radical Lebron James made his thoughts clear on Monday about Morey’s words and the “negative” side-effects of free speech, because for some reason people care about the NBA player’s opinions in times like these. According to James, Morey wasn’t educated on the issues. In other words, James supports communist China over the freedom-seekers.

Remember, this is a guy kids look up to. A guy who has made millions upon millions of dollars in America. A guy recognized all over the world simply because he can dunk a basketball. Something’s wrong with this picture.

James screeched, “We all talk about this freedom of speech, yes, we all do have freedom of speech but at times there are ramifications for the negative that can happen when you’re not thinking about others and you’re only thinking about yourself. I don’t want to get into a … feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand and he spoke. So many people could have been harmed, not only financially, but physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

WATCH:

Lakers’ LeBron James on NBA’s China controversy: “I don’t want to get into a … feud with Daryl Morey but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand and he spoke.”

James later clarified:

Let me clear up the confusion. I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences and ramifications of the tweet. I’m not discussing the substance. Others can talk About that.

My team and this league just went through a difficult week. I think people need to understand what a tweet or statement can do to others. And I believe nobody stopped and considered what would happen. Could have waited a week to send it.

James has been racking up more achievements every season and for the last few years debate has raged over whether James has finally taken GOAT status (greatest of all time) away from Michael Jordon.

But while sports reporters and NBA statisticians may bicker over the particulars, it appears that the public still considers LeBron James a pretender to the GOAT.

As Business Insider noted:

Supporters of Jordan pointed to Jordan’s six championships, his undefeated record in the NBA Finals, and his overall influence in taking the NBA’s popularity to a new level as reasons why he’s the best.

Fans of James point to his longevity, his eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances, of which he won three, and his overall brilliance on the floor beyond scoring. James is also still at his peak and passing Jordan in several statistical achievements.

But a new INSIDER poll finds that James is a big loser in this barnyard battle.

The poll of 1,082 Americans found former Bulls star Michael Jordan earned 66 percent of the GOAT vote while James only saw 10.4 percent support for top status.

Others who found small numbers of supporters included Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Stephen Curry.

Jordan picked up support across all ages, not dipping below 54 percent in any age range. Granted respondents between the ages of 18-29 were more enthusiastic about James, then again many of those respondents weren’t around for Michael Jordan’s great career.

Save conservative media!

Yovanovitch Testifies In Impeachment Hearing Of Being ‘Kneecapped;’ Trump Says Everywhere She Worked ‘Turned Bad’

Published

on

Former ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch decided to do a little bit of finger pointing during her testimony during Friday’s impeachment hearings, targeting Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and discussing her sudden removal from her diplomatic post. President Trump returned fire and stated that every place Yovanovitch worked “turned bad.” Check out the details from Fox News: During her appearance, Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who served both Republican and Democratic presidents, relayed her story of being suddenly recalled by Trump in May, saying she believes Giuliani played a key role in telling people she was not sufficiently supportive of the president. “I do not understand Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me, nor can I offer an opinion on whether he believed the allegations he spread about me,” Yovanovitch said. “If our chief representative is kneecapped, it limits our effectiveness to safeguard the vital national security interests of the United States,” Yovanovitch said. After the hearing started, Trump began attacking her, tweeting, “Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.” He added, “It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1195356198347956224 As the impeachment hearing kicked off on Friday, the White House released a new transcript of the president’s initial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The transcript showed the president agreeing to meet with Zelensky — without any sort of preconditions — in the first official phone call between the two world leaders. Devin Nunes, ranking member of the Intelligence Committee read the whole letter during his opening statement. A separate call that happened between Trump and Zelensky is what started the impeachment inquiry, and the GOP is saying this new transcript helps solidify Trump’s argument that he didn’t do anything wrong in his conversation with the Ukrainian president-elect. Yovanovitch’s removal from her post as the ambassador to Ukraine is…

Planned Parenthood Puts On Pole-Dancing Fundraiser For All-Ages, All-Genders; Includes ‘Pleasure Education’

Published

on

Planned Parenthood’s Northwest and Hawaii political action group is putting on an event entitled “Femme Fest” in Olympia, Washington, which is being offered and opened to “all genders and ages,” which will feature “clitoris and pleasure education” workshops and a “Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase.” Here’s more on the event from TheBlaze: “Join Pilates at Play and Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest & Hawaii as we celebrate our sexuality and enjoy an irreverently playful night of fundraising, fitness, sex talk, and exotic pole dance performances,” an announcement for the event reads on Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s website. The fundraiser comes after a recent school board vote in the nearby Battle Ground school district to scrap a comprehensive sex education curriculum that many feared promoted an LGBTQ+ agenda. In fact, the board not only suspended its use of the specific sex education curriculum under fire, known as FLASH, but eliminated the requirements for the district to teach sex education in general, unless required by the state. Presently, Washington law only requires that school districts teach about HIV and AIDS prevention. Planned Parenthood’s event will also have an educational portion comprised of sessions designed to teach attendees about making sex education something that’s mandatory in the state of Washington. Information about how to pleasure the “clitoris” will also be made available. Here’s a glimpse at the whole schedule: 4 – 5 p.m.: Pilates and Barre Class Sampler 5 – 5:30 p.m.: Sexy Floor Work Lesson 5:30 – 6 p.m.: The Art of Feminine Sensual Movement 6 – 6:30 p.m.: Clitoris and Pleasure Education with Planned Parenthood 6:30 – 7 p.m.: Sex Ed in Washington State Informational with Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and Hawaii 7- 9 p.m. Wicked Sexy Pole Dance Showcase presented by Pole at Play LifeSiteNews reported that this isn’t the first…
