During a Thursday Instagram Live video, NBA blowhard LeBron James declared that he used to be a big Dallas Cowboys fan, but stopped rooting for the NFL team because of owner Jerry Jones’s opposition to kneeling during the national anthem.
James explained, “I had to sit down on the Cowboys, man. There was just a lot of things that was going on during when guys were kneeling, and guys were having freedom of speech. They wanted to do it in a very peaceful manner. A lot of people in their front office and a lot of people that ran the organization was like, ‘If you do that around here, then you will never play for this franchise again.’ And I just didn’t think that was appropriate.”
In 2017, Jones told players that there would be no kneeling as cop-hater Colin Kaepernick led the wave of anti-Americanism in sports leagues. Jones insisted that kneeling during the anthem was the wrong time for the players to express themselves and that disrespecting the flag would not happen on his watch.
“I know this, we cannot … in the NFL in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag,” Jones explained. “We know that there is a serious debate in this country about those issues, but there is no question in my mind that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag. So we’re clear.”
That’s not enough for LeBron, who, like all Leftists, believe politics should be at the center of all human activity.
