On Monday, Lebron James spoke out on television about his support of the Chinese Communists who have been knowingly persecuting their population, slaughtering those who refuse to conform to their Marxist system or speak out for freedom and private ownership!
It all began when the NBA Rockets General Manager tweeted out his support for the Hong Kong protesters who are fighting for their freedom, as the Communist Chinese continue to strip away their right to free speech, free press, and private ownership! Lebron and other left-wing Marxists slammed Morey for his support of those putting their lives on the line in support of freedom, as well as chastized Rockets GM Daryl Morey for supporting the Hong Kong protesters!
Lebron even lectured Morey on the ‘perils of free speech’!
Breitbart News reported…
LeBron James called Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey uneducated and went off at-length about the “negative” side-effects of free speech, in reaction to Morey’s tweet of support to pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong.
On October 4th, Morey tweeted a message of support of Hong Kong’s demonstrators, saying: “Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong.”
That message touched off a firestorm of controversy as China canceled minor league exhibition games and canceled numerous business deals with the Rockets, and the NBA. On Monday, Lakers forward LeBron James spoke publicly about the incident for the first time, and didn’t mince words while calling Morey out for a tweet that he says could have caused people to be physically “harmed.”
The NBA received tremendous bipartisan criticism for their initial response to Morey’s tweet, when they responded by calling the post “regrettable” for the offense that it caused. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver eventually tried to quell the backlash by championing Morey’s free speech rights.
Now, with the league representatives and players back from their tumultuous trip to China, it seemed like the news cycle of the NBA-China rift had died down. However, with James denouncing free speech in even stronger terms than the NBA did while calling a pro-democracy tweet “uneducated,” it’s difficult to see the crisis going away.
Although LeBron James has openly chastised the United States and all the freedoms it has bestowed to ‘We the People’, at least he is being honest and telling the American people what he apparently believes in! It is hard for most Americans to understand, being our nation of freedom and prosperity has afforded him millions of dollars, which has allowed him to live his rich and famous lifestyle, for just playing a mere game! Sadly, the Democrats have for the most part refused to be honest with the American people, until recently!
