Tuesday after a playoff game between the L.A. Lakers and the Phoenix Suns, basketball star and social justice blowhard LeBron James urged Congress to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, calling small-time criminal Floyd who died of a drug overdose a man who “literally changed the world’ and “an angel looking over all of us.”
Asked about the police reform bill being pushed by the Democrats in Washington, James said the bill has his “full support” and that he feels it would change “the landscape of how policing is modified, how policing is looked at.”
“Anytime you talk about change, it’s very key that you continue to have these conversations,” James added, praising Floyd as “an angel looking over all of us, looking over all these black kids in the black community.”
What Floyd’s connection is to innocent black kids is unclear. He was a middle-aged petty criminal who was high on drugs and resisted arrest for trying to pass a counterfeit bill. He died in police custody and an officer using legal restraint was wrongly convicted of his murder thanks to leftist political intimidation.
But Democrat race hustlers like LeBron James have recast Floyd as a saintly civil rights icon watching over children from heaven, protecting them from the racist murderer boogeymen in law enforcement.
