LeBron James And Other Members Of The Lakers Sport Mock MAGA Hats

On Tuesday evening, prior to the first-round playoff series game against the Portland Trailblazers, members of the Los Angeles Lakers, including NBA legend LeBron James, rocked mock MAGA caps which had the words, “Great Again,” crossed out and replaced with “Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.”

James, easily one of the biggest influences in modern sports, also wore a shirt that said “By Any Means” on it, while also posting up the slogan on Instagram, writing, “By Any Means!! Lets Get It #JusticeForBreonnaTaylor.”

Now, to be fair, what happened to Taylor is absolutely horrific and absolutely uncalled for. The woman was shot while in her bed and there’s definitely reason to be angry about this situation being unresolved.

The real issue here is whether or not it’s acceptable to participate in political activism while on the job. Do we really need to politicize sports like we have the rest of life?

Some of the other members of the Lakers squad who donned the mock MAGA hats included Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard, Jared Dudley, Quinn Cook, Rajon Rondo, Danny Green, and JR Smith, as The Daily Mail reported.

After the game, James told reporters, “You know the situation that’s going on in Louisville, Kentucky. An innocent woman being killed, by the name of Breonna Taylor. A woman who had a bright future. Her life was taken away from her. There’s been no arrests, there’s been no justice, not only for her, but for her family … We want to continue to shed light on that situation because it’s just unjust. That’s what it’s about.”

Last month, James told reporters at a press conference, “The same energy that we have on the floor is the same energy that we have towards having justice for Breonna Taylor and her family is the energy that we bring to the game. That’s just who we are. We want the cops arrested who committed that crime. As one of the leaders of this league, I want Taylor’s family to know and the state of Kentucky to know … we want justice. And that’s what it’s all about. What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong. And this is a wrong situation that’s going on … It’s just heartbreaking. You guys don’t understand. Unless you’re a person of color, you guys don’t understand. I understand you might feel for us. But you will never truly understand what it is to be black in America.”

James went on saying, “A lot of people kind of use this analogy, talking about Black Lives Matter as a movement. It’s not a movement. When you’re black, it’s not a movement. It’s a lifestyle. We sit here and say it’s a movement, and, OK, how long is this movement going to last? ‘Don’t stop the movement.’ No, this is a walk of life. When you wake up and you’re Black, that is what it is. It shouldn’t be a movement. It should be a lifestyle. This is who we are. … I don’t like the word ‘movement’ because, unfortunately, in America and in society, there ain’t been no damn movement for us. There ain’t been no movement.”

Now, again, the whole notion of systemic racism is questionable at best. We’ve made such ardent strides toward full equality over the last few decades. People were treating each other as human beings, focusing more on character than color.

Then Marxist progressives got involved and took over the media. A narrative was crafted to paint things up as if racism exists at every level of society and is still keeping minorities down.

To a point, this is true. However, it’s the liberals are doing the oppressing. Just look at inner city areas where Democrats have been in charge for years. These folks have been promised the moon over and over again, yet the people running the show have failed to deliver.

At the end of the day, it’s understandable to be upset about the Taylor case and to want to see some closure. The problem is when you start politicizing every area of life, there’s no escape from the onslaught.

Save conservative media!

Ilhan Omar Caught Red-Handed In ‘Cash-For-Ballots Harvesting Scheme’ — Project Veritas Report

Caught ya!

Everybody knows that Ilhan Omar is corrupt. Her disturbing track record proves it. However, this new blemish on her resume is likely to turn more heads than usual. If the mainstream media was honest with the American public, they’d report on this story from Project Veritas. Here’s the deal, via Project Veritas: [Minneapolis–Sept. 27, 2020] Project Veritas investigators revealed a ballot harvesting scheme here involving clan and political allies and associates of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) in the first of a series of reports. “Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” said Liban Mohamed in a series of Snapchat videos posted July 1 and July 2 on his own Snapchat profile. CONTINUED: Mohamed said he was collecting the ballots to help his brother win the city’s Aug. 11 special election for a vacant Ward 6 city council race—which was held the same day as the primary for Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat. Ward 6 is the heart of the city’s Somali community and the Omar’s political base. James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, said: “Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities—and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/1310385604962775042?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310385604962775042%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-project-veritas-exposes-ilhan-omar-connection-to-illegal-ballot-harvesting-voter-fraud-scheme%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWK56l2VaLY&feature=emb_title

Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Republicans’ Are ‘Spineless, Misogynistic Hypocrites’

How original!

The New York Times, a hysterically funny satire “news”paper, or, a liberal version of The Babylon Bee, if you will, put out a report on Sunday about President Trump’s taxes. Yeah, they’re back on that train again. AOC gleaned the highlights, then decided to tweet at her uninformed, politically backward social media followers. Check this out, via The Hill: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) slammed President Trump on Sunday over a report in The New York Times detailing his personal tax contributions over the past 20 years. In a tweet, the freshman New York lawmaker pointed to the taxes reportedly paid by the president and former media mogul in 2016 and 2017 — $750 a year — as being less than she paid while working as a bartender in New York City prior to her election to office in 2018. LOOK: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1310384989524185093?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310384989524185093%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fhouse%2F518529-ocasio-cortez-trump-contributed-less-in-taxes-than-waitresses-and-undocumented Next, Ocasio-Cortez hammered Republicans for being “spineless, misogynistic hypocrites.” https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1310388421286920193?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310388421286920193%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fhouse%2F518529-ocasio-cortez-trump-contributed-less-in-taxes-than-waitresses-and-undocumented For a member of the lower chamber, who swore an oath to the United States of America, to claim that illegal immigration should be accepted, is absolutely preposterous. AOC said, “We can’t go on with kinda these xenophobic narratives that undocumented people are somehow wrong.” See how she words it? She’s making the uninformed believe that conservatives feel that illegals are bad people. No, that’s not it at all – IT’S THE ACT OF CROSSING THE BORDER…ILLEGALLY!! Why is that such a difficult concept for her to grasp? VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8LwqJ_6T3Q&feature=emb_title Check this out, via Washington Examiner: Conservative political commentator Candace Owens got involved in a Twitter argument between former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, accusing the New York congresswoman of hypocrisy in her response to the coronavirus. AOC’s tweet: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1253368962663972870?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1253368962663972870&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.analyzingamerica.org%2Fcandace-owens-eviscerates-aoc-youre-a-racist-radical-communist-that-wants-to-expand-government-control-and-dependency%2F Owens’ response: https://twitter.com/RealCandaceO/status/1253375616902193158
