LeBron James has turned off millions of fans with his inane political statements.
His uniformed comments have only worked to further divide the country.
And James might be under investigation after one anti-police tweet.
Democrats and their media allies encourage celebrities to comment on politics in an attempt to spread and reinforce leftist ideas.
NBA superstar LeBron James has received pats on the back for his absurd political commentary, including saying that black men are being “hunted” in America.
James crossed the line when he tweeted a threat to a police officer who had saved a young woman’s life by shooting and stabbing another young woman who was moments away from stabbing her with a big kitchen knife.
After the facts came out, James deleted the tweet, but the damage had already been done.
His 50+ million Twitter followers saw the threat.
And the Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL), the union representing LAPD officers, urged the NBA to investigate James over his incendiary tweet.
Detective James McBride, a member of the Los Angeles Police Protective League Board of Directors, said during an appearance on Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle:
“LeBron James sent that tweet out to over fifty million followers to incite violence is basically what that tweet did…No officer wants to take a life, but I’ll tell you one thing, that officer saved a life and he’s a hero.”
This isn’t the first time James has waded into police controversies.
He’s repeatedly turned up the temperature on police incidents that have turned into viral phenomena because of endless media coverage.
After two Los Angeles police officers were ambushed while sitting in their cars, James was noticeably silent on the issue.
James and other celebrities have been protected by the media and other institutions for their irresponsible political rhetoric.
A police officer in Idaho made a viral video that lampooned James:

However, the officer was suspended for his actions.
Luckily for the officer, his friend set up a GoFundMe page that garnered over $222,000 in donations.
James has become beyond reproach in the eyes of the media.
He and other celebrities who toe the line can essentially say whatever they want, and the corporate press will defend them.
Public figures are rewarded so long as they parrot talking points about systemic racism and how terrible America is.
Nothing is likely to come of James’s dangerous threat, and he’ll be front and center next time there’s a divisive police incident that can be used by the corporate press.
