The NBA political commentators are back at it again.
The league is determined to cram politics down fans’ throats.
And LeBron James got political again with one ridiculous gun-grabber message.
The NBA was beginning to reel fans back in by staying out of hot-button political discussions, but the league was too tempted to keep its nose out of it.
Gun grabbers wasted no time using the horrific shooting in Uvalde, Texas to push for ineffective gun control laws.
And LeBron James was front and center.
He and other Democratic shills urged Congress to “do something.”
That “something” doesn’t even need to be substantive; it just needs to be “something.”
There simply has to be change! HAS TO BE!! 😔😔😔😔🥺🥺🥺🥺.. Praying to the heavens above to all with kids these days in schools. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

But James didn’t stop there.
He praised China for its gun control laws.
🤷🏾♂️. It’s not 🚀 science https://t.co/oyvfYPjEBZ

James’ defense of China and the Chinese Communist Party was one of the reasons that the league lost standing with fans in the first place.
Former Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey expressed tepid support for pro-freedom protesters in Hong Kong, and James and other pro-China figures in the league came down on Morey like a ton of bricks.
James had nothing to say about numerous human rights abuses in China, including the persecution of the Uyghur Muslims, forced abortions, sterilizations, and organ harvesting.
The CCP is as bad as it gets, but James has the gall to praise their gun control.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr did similar when he went on an ignorant gun control rant.
When he had previously been asked about human rights abuses in China, he deflected and pointed to American gun crime.
The gun control activists are absurd.
Other figures around the league jumped on the message, too.
The Miami Heat made an announcement urging people to contact senators and vote against pro-gun representatives.

This is the gun control playbook in a nutshell.
Democrats wait for a tragedy, then they swoop in and declare their garbage policies the solution.
And it’s ridiculous that the NBA would jump on board.
