The craziest news story of 2020 is undoubtedly how furious liberals were when President Trump took out a known Iranian terrorist, Gen. Qasem Soleimani.
He was an Iranian Major General in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and despite being a secretive leader of the Quds Force and the number two commander in all of Iran, he butchered thousands, including hundreds of Americans. Make no mistake, Soleimani was a terrorist.
And now a former NFL star says that Iran should attack the White House following the American-Iran controversy.
It was a little over three years ago when Colin Kaepernick first kneeled for the National Anthem during a preseason game. This was the spark that started the fire because following Kaepernick’s divisive anti-American protest, more athletes began speaking up about a range of divisive issues.
Specifically, more athletes and coaches across all sports started being more vocal about the political climate, which is the last thing in the world millions of Americans want to hear from any celebrities. They want to shame Trump supporters as much as humanly possible and use their celebrity as the platform to widely denigrate.
Championship teams visiting the White House was a longstanding tradition until Trump was inaugurated and now athletes are refusing to visit the White House while he’s there because they disagree with his policies, or just downright hate him.
Even retired athletes like retired All-Pro NFL defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth III who was drafted by the Tennessee Titans and also spent time on the Washington Redskins, the New England Patriots and finished his career off in Tampa Bay for the Buccaneers.
Recently, Haynesworth suggested that Iran should target the White House following the death of Gen. Soleimani.
He posted an image on Instagram featuring a red circle around the White House with an arrow pointing to it with a caption reading, “Not affiliated.”
Accompanying the post he wrote, “@Iran if you are going to attack the United States well here is a picture for you! #justtryingtohelp us folks that aren’t starting wars.”
The post has since been deleted but Haynesworth was inarguably signaling to Iran to only target the White House.
Many were understandably upset with Haynesworth’s post. One user responded, “I thought he was better than this…… But he is acting just like the rest! But when he was really sick and everyone supported him what if we all wished he was dead he wouldn’t like it but he’s saying (expletive) it kill them all in the Whitehouse!”
In July, Haynesworth opened up about his health problems and the need for a new kidney. People weren’t at all thrilled to see him threaten President Trump while pleading for help.
Another respondent, and likely a veteran in our Armed Forces, wrote, “Hope you don’t ever have to go to one of these places because if you did unlike those of us who have fought for your precious freedom you would piss yourself in fear just jumping out of the plane!”
Leftists claim they are the most tolerant Americans but that’s clearly not true. Many celebrities have threatened Trump since he’s become president.
Comedian George Lopez wrote on social media following an Iranian eulogist calling for an $80 million bounty on President Trump’s head saying, “We’ll do it for half.”
There’s really no difference between that comment and what Haynesworth suggested. The only real difference is Lopez can argue it was a “joke” considering his profession but Haynesworth can’t claim that.
The tragic circumstances might be that Haynesworth lost a lot of sympathy for his health issues in the wake of calling for a terrorist attack against our own country and the duly elected president.
You might call it a shame but Haynesworth did it to himself. He reaps what he sows.
