LeBron James has become a sacred cow ever since he began spouting Democrat talking points.
James has been particularly vocal with his anti-police protest.
But one cop who called out James just got some surprising news.
LeBron James made the decision to get political in 2016 when he campaigned for Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump.
Since then, James has only gotten more extreme in his rhetoric.
He crossed the line when he tweeted a threat at a police officer who saved a young girl’s life because he didn’t wait to get all the facts of the case.
James was ultimately shamed into taking down the tweet and issuing a non-apology, but the damage was already done.
Nate Sylvester, a marshal’s deputy in Idaho, went viral when he made a TikTok video lampooning James’s idiotic tweet.
However, Sylvester’s department did not find his video amusing; they suspended him and issued a scathing rebuke:
“The Bellevue Marshal’s Office is aware of the extreme controversy regarding Deputy Marshal Silvester’s viral TikTok. The statements made do NOT represent the Bellevue Marshal’s Office…The Bellevue Marshal’s Office always demands that our Deputies engage with our citizens in a friendly and professional manner. This is NOT how we expect our Deputies to act on duty or use city time.”
But Sylvester’s friend started a GoFundMe to support him, and it raised $500,000.
Sylvester also announced that he’s back on the job and he signed a book deal with Di Angelo Publications for an upcoming title called “Never Off Duty.”
The situation worked out well for Sylvester, but other police officers haven’t been as fortunate.
The growing anti-police rhetoric pushed by James and the corporate press has led to mass resignations and early retirements.
The violent crime rate had a historic jump in 2020 amid calls to defund the police.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa terrorists were allowed to cause over $2 billion in property damage, but people who defended their property were harassed and charged with serious crimes.
This anarcho-tyranny (criminals operate with impunity while law-abiding citizens get punished severely) is on the rise across the country.
For example, a progressive district attorney bankrolled by George Soros tried to throw the book at St. Louis residents Mark and Patricia McCloskey, but the rioters who broke into their gated community, threatened them, and marched to the mayor’s house suffered no consequences.
Instead of calming tensions, James and other celebrities are throwing gasoline on the fire.
James said black people are being “hunted” in the United States, which is sick and irresponsible.
The truth is that violent crime increases when police officers withdraw from communities.
Many cities around the country found that out in response to the summer riots of 2020.
The number of people killed in far-left autonomous zones is likely comparable to the number of unarmed black people shot by the police.
James needs to focus on basketball and take a step back from commenting on politics.
