Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs has lost his mind.
He’s outed himself as a raging SJW with his unprovoked ad hominem attacks on the president.
Now Popovich is back at it with more ludicrous statements about Donald Trump.
Not long ago, Popovich called up The Nation—a far-left publication—to do an interview hurling invectives at Trump.
Now he’s back calling the president a racist after his alleged comments about third-world countries.
President Donald Trump denied being a racist Sunday, but outspoken San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is not buying it.
While speaking with reporters Monday about Martin Luther King Jr., Popovich alluded to Trump’s remarks, saying that any time he hears someone say they are not racist, they are actually racist.
“[Martin Luther King Jr.] understood that racism was our national sin, and if everybody didn’t come together it would bring everybody down, including white people,” Popovich explained. “That promise that he basically demanded America fulfill from way back when is what put us on the road to make America great. At the same time, we all know the situation now. And I think he’d be a very, very sad man to see that a lot of his efforts have been held up and torn down. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking at the Voting Rights Act or the ridiculous number of people of color who are incarcerated.”
“Every time I hear somebody say they’re not a racist, you know they are,” he added.
Popovich’s comments are asinine. If he truly believes what he’s saying, there’s no defense for the repugnant label of “racist.”
Popovich talks about how Dr. King wanted everybody to come together, but it’s the left that’s intentionally balkanizing society; the left continues to eat itself with identity politics.
Trump’s alleged comments that triggered Popovich’s latest rant also put the left in a quagmire. The left tries to simultaneously extol the greatness of third-world countries while also chronicling how pitiable they are, and thus America must take in all immigrants from these nations.
From BizPac Review:
Apparently, liberals believe poverty and disease-stricken third-world countries are model nations to be emulated.
On Thursday night, National Review editor Rich Lowry stumped and irritated CNN commentator Joan Walsh with a simple-but-powerful question: Where would you rather live, Norway or Haiti?
Walsh went on to argue that “There’s really something cruel about displacing them and something racist,” alluding to the Trump administration’s decision to end temporary resident status for 60,000 Haitians.
Lowry shot back by asking Walsh if she would rather live in Norway or Haiti, to which she replied, “I don’t know” and “It’s none of your business, actually.”
The fact Walsh was unable to admit she’d rather live in Norway shows the cognitive dissonance of the left.
Elites like Walsh wouldn’t be caught dead living in Southeast DC, let alone Sub-Saharan Africa.
The State Department had even issued a strong travel advisory warning for countries in disrepair like Haiti.
Popovich’s comments, as they have been in the past, are completely divorced from reality.
