The Don Dunks on LeBron After Inflammatory, Anti-Police Tweet

No. 45 wasn’t pulling any punches, either.

Social justice and sports have long lived in two very different realms within the greater popular culture, but that is changing…rapidly.

One of the first catalysts of this unrequested melding came via Colin Kaepernick, a second-string NFL quarterback who would kneel during the National Anthem to bring awareness to what he vaguely described as an issue of racial oppression.  That protest spread throughout the league, first, and then on to other sports around the world.

Soon, the flood gates were open, and athletes far and wide began using their celebrity status to inject themselves into political discussions.

One of the most proficient of the new crop of social justice athletes was none other than LeBron James – superstar basketball player for the LA Lakers.  James, earlier this week, tweeted the photo of a police officer involved in the shooting death of a young black girl in Columbus, OH, with the caption  “You’re Next”.

Many, including former President Donald Trump, believed that James’ tweet was inappropriate, and could have been interpreted as a call for violence.

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on Thursday slamming NBA star LeBron James for his “racist rants” that are “doing nothing to bring our country together.”

“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA, which has just recorded the lowest television RATINGS, by far, in the long and distinguished history of the League,” the former president stated.

“His RACIST rants are divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning,” Trump continued. “He may be a great basketball player, but he is doing nothing to bring our Country together!”

James attempted to walk back the tweet itself shortly after its deletion, but his words rang hollow with many, and criticism of his stance continued to flood social media for several days.

Biden And Harris Are Giving Bizarre Mixed Messages On Vaccinations And Masks

Newsflash to the Biden-Harris administration — you’re not helping.

Newsflash to the Biden-Harris administration — you’re not helping. Before they were elected, Dementia Joe and Kamala “I will never visit the border,” Harris were very clear on their messaging regarding the virus from Wuhan. It was basically, “Everyone! Be Afraid All The Time! Wear Your Mask 24/7, Or You’re All Going To Die! Well that, and Orange Man Bad! Vote Biden-Harris!” It worked for them thanks to the corporate media and their Big Tech buddies. But now we’re over 100 days into the Biden-Harris administration. Despite millions of vaccines, states opening up, and cases declining in many areas of the country, the message hasn’t changed much. The President seems to rely on his mask the same way Linus from Peanuts needed his blanket. Biden freaked out when he was at an event in Georgia and couldn’t find his mask despite being outdoors and having been fully vaccinated several months ago. Dementia Joe forgets he had his first shot when Donald Trump was president. https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1387918458822795269?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1387918458822795269%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fclashdaily.com%2F2021%2F05%2Fbidens-misplaced-mask-was-more-than-just-a-goofy-gaffe-heres-why-video%2F Remember when he wore a mask outside as he walked to a podium to tell America we didn’t have to wear a mask when we were outside? https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1387114804435955720?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1387114804435955720%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fclashdaily.com%2F2021%2F04%2Fwatch-biden-walks-outside-wearing-a-mask-to-tell-americans-they-dont-need-to-wear-masks-outside%2F It’s these kinds of weird behaviors by Biden-Harris that are making people wonder what the point is in getting vaccinated. He’s now saying that it’s a “patriotic duty” to keep wearing a mask after being vaccinated. https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1388089012573847552?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1388089012573847552%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fclashdaily.com%2F2021%2F04%2Fwatch-joe-gives-crazy-mixed-messages-about-masks-and-vaccines%2F If the Biden-Harris administration believes that vaccines are highly effective at preventing illness, which is the point of a vaccine, shouldn’t they be acting as if they believed the shots were effective? But the President and Vice President continue to behave as though they have not been given an efficacious vaccine — they still wear a mask when they’re in public. In the past few days, President Biden, First Lady…
