LeBron James has become an obnoxious spokesman for the Democratic Party.
He has made countless statements that have been incredibly divisive in harmful ways.
And James deleted one Morgan Freeman video that dismantled the left’s narrative.
Prior to 2016, NBA megastar LeBron James was not political.
But after Colin Kapenerick started the anti-American anthem protests, James decided to get into politics and campaign for Hillary Clinton.
Since then, James has only become more strident in his views.
He once said that black people were being “hunted” in America.
However, James accidentally spread a unifying message that he quickly deleted.
James reposted a video from conservative commentator Charlie Kirk.
The video was an excerpt of an old interview between Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman and long-time journalist Mike Wallace.
Freeman said that he did not want Black History Month, and pushed Wallace on the issue.
In the clip, Wallace began, “Black History Month, you find?”
“Ridiculous,” Freeman immediately answered.
Wallace responded, “Why?”
Freeman replied, “You’re gonna relegate my history to a month?”
Wallace shot back, “Oh, come on,” and Freeman answered, “What do you do with yours? Which month is white history month?”
After an awkward pause from Wallace, Freeman pressed, “Come on, tell me.”
Wallace stammered and replied, “I’m Jewish.”
Freeman continued, “Okay, which month is Jewish history month?”
“There isn’t one,” Wallace responded.
Freeman added, “Oh, oh. Why not? Do you want one?”
“No, no,” Wallace answered.
Freeman replied, “No, I don’t either. I don’t want a Black history month. Black history is American history.”
Wallace asked, “How are we gonna get rid of racism—” and Freeman interrupted, “Stop talking about it.”
A stunned Wallace had no response.
Freeman continued, “I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man. I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman.”
Kirk pondered why James would delete Freeman’s message, asking, “LeBron James shared a video I posted of Morgan Freeman saying we should get rid of black history month, then he deleted it. Why?”

Kirk later added, “It’s okay to express how you really feel, [LeBron].”
Apparently, it is not okay for LeBron James to express how he feels.
It’s easy to see why his left-wing handlers would want to downplay Freeman’s message.
The entire Democratic Party depends upon the politics of identity grievances.
They don’t want to bring people together under a common identity as Americans.
Their goal is to build a coalition of the aggrieved using race, sex, sexuality, gender identity, immigration status, and anything else that causes political rancor.
In a 2015 interview, James said that he would tell his teenage sons to “be respectful” when engaging with police officers.
James explained, “I’ve had one or two encounters with the police in my life that were nothing. But sometimes, you just gotta shut up. It’s that simple. Just be quiet and let them do their job and go on about your life, and hopefully, things go well.”
James seems to have common sense, but that common sense is at odds with his new role as a political pawn of the Democratic Party.
