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!

Roughly ’10 to 15 Percent’ of Americans Are ‘Not Very Good People,’ Says Joe Biden

Imagine if Trump said it…

Like most (if not all) Democrats, Joe Biden can get away with anything he says because he has the mainstream media on his side. President Trump is obviously not afforded that luxury. Anybody want to get a jump on those inevitable “10 to 15 percent” t-shirts? Check this out, via New York Times: WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.” Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not. Joe said, “The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out.” He added, “Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that. There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1201984322909229056?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201984322909229056&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/trippwhitbeck/status/1201992151292432384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201992151292432384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/sunscreen_ceo/status/1201985832703287296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985832703287296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/1962Kiser/status/1201985108128829440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985108128829440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/laurenduca/status/1201930900445057024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201930900445057024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/notaguido1/status/1201943648583200769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201943648583200769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/Thomas_Firenze/status/1201996468757749760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201996468757749760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/FourthHailMary/status/1201985912328130561?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985912328130561&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/markbeenyc/status/1201987371115388928?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201987371115388928&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/navymig/status/1201985998801911808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985998801911808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/alexsimonelis/status/1201986045719568384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201986045719568384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F H/T: Twitchy

‘Practice Things Like An Eye Gouge!’ Project Veritas Infiltrates Antifa, Learns Devastating Truths

These guys aren’t playing around!

“Practice things like an eye gouge. It takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes,” says Antifa member, Nicholas Cifuni. Pretty sickening. Then again, nothing about the anti-fascist fascist movement is on the level. James O’Keefe of Project Veritas had an operative infiltrate an Antifa outfit in Portland. What was learned is pretty devastating. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLR76_e_koE&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr announced Thursday that investigations of recent violence spinning out of protests yielded evidence that not only are various “extremist” groups taking advantage of the unrest for their own ends, but that “foreign actors” are also getting involved. […] Barr said that there is evidence that those extremists include Antifa and other groups of different political persuasions, as well as “foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1267091647042473985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1267091647042473985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-james-okeefe-infiltrates-antifa%2F Here’s more Antifa nonsense… https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268693940376604677 https://twitter.com/mtgreenee/status/1268692420834799617 https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1268684723053789184 https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1268684820151844864 https://twitter.com/SamParkerSenate/status/1268529530655793152?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268529530655793152&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2020%2F06%2F04%2Four-revolution-cannot-be-stopped-project-veritas-infiltrates-antifa-exposing-the-terrorist-movement-and-holy-crap-watch%2F https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268686572439904260
