LeBron James has made the foolish decision to get more political.
That’s one of the reasons why NBA ratings are in the tank.
Now one sports show host took James apart for one dangerous anti-police message.
One of the quickest ways to gain cultural approval is to parrot the talking points of the establishment Left.
LeBron James made the decision to get more political during the 2016 campaign, and he’s been championed as the next Muhammad Ali of the sports world.
However, James’s campaigning for Hillary Clinton in 2016 ended with her losing his home state of Ohio, and the election overall.
James’s politicking—along with the league as a whole—now is costing the NBA dearly in television ratings and advertising revenue.
James has become more radical in his political takes; last year he said black men are being “hunted” in America.
After a shooting incident in Columbus, Ohio—where a police officer shot and killed a 16-year-old girl who was about to stab another girl with a big kitchen knife—James crossed the line by tweeting a photo of the officer with the threat “You’re next.”
James’s threat came on the heels of the jury’s controversial guilty verdict in the Derek Chauvin murder trial.
Once James finally bothered to examine the faces of the Columbus shooting, he deleted his tweet and issued a fake apology that criticized “the system.”
But that didn’t stop Fox Sports 1 host Marcellus Wiley from calling out James’s destructive rhetoric.
Wiley—who previously called out the radical anti-Christian and anti-family agenda of Black Lives Matter—took James to task for irresponsibly spreading hatred and division.
Wiley said of James’s “apology” tweet:
“LeBron James in this tweet, what does he say? ‘Oh man, the system.’ The system? The same system that is so broken that it allowed you to become a billionaire and never get arrested in it…But the system is broken? Are you speaking for other people?”

Wiley is completely correct.
America is the freest and most tolerant country in the world.
Hundreds of thousands risk death to come to America every single year.
“We have enough people out here telling us what not to do, what goes wrong…How about somebody who has made it? … I would love to hear that story of how you became LeBron James against all odds, instead of always professing the odds are against all people.”
Wiley also name-dropped conservative economist and philosopher Thomas Sowell, someone who’s been consciously ignored by the academies and black intelligentsia.
“They’re going to know victims’ names before they know professors’ names and wise scholars like Thomas Sowell.”
A truthful discussion about race and policing has been made impossible by the fake news media, charlatans like the BLM leadership, and useful idiots in entertainment like LeBron James.
