Their lives don’t matter to LeBron James, noted apologist for and profiteer from Chinese Communist genocide and repression of minorities, because they weren’t killed by a white cop but rather by black thugs or what Joe Biden once called “predators.” The NBA star, blessed with a massive physique and the ability to put a ball through a hoop with some regularity, has used the forum and the audience his stardom has bestowed on him only to condemn and target white cops who risk their lives to save black lives by shooting black criminals, while blithely and somewhat hypocritically ignoring the carnage that kills such innocent black lives.
LeBron, who no doubt has his own armed security in addition to what the NBA and its franchise cities provide for their fans, venues, and players, attacked and marked for assassination a Columbus, Ohio, cop who wasn’t “woke” enough to allow a black teen to murder another black teen and instead made the split-second decision to save the innocent black teen from an assault with a deadly weapon. As Fox News reported:
LeBron James accused of inciting violence with ‘YOU’RE NEXT’ tweet targeting Ohio police officer
Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James faced intense backlash Wednesday over a now-deleted tweet targeting a Columbus, Ohio, police officer involved in the shooting death of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.
Bodycam footage released late Tuesday showed Bryant being shot as she was attacking another Black teen with a knife.
James suggested that the police shooting was unjustified coming on the heels of the conviction of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin on murder and manslaughter charges in the death of George Floyd.
YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY,” the NBA icon wrote with an hourglass emoji over an image of one of the officers at the scene of Bryant’s shooting. James was accused by critics of leveraging his massive Twitter following to target the officer.
“Lebron James is inciting violence against an Ohio police officer. This is disgraceful and dangerous. Is the NBA okay with this? Is Twitter?” Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., asked.
After deleting the tweet calling for a cop’s death, in another tweet King James then opined:
“I’m so damn tired of seeing black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because it’s being used to create more hate – This isn’t about one officer. It’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY.
