  • LeBron caught in storm after social media gaffe

    12/23/2018 4:06:39 PM PST · by NoLibZone · 118 replies ^ | 12/23/18 |
    Not long after making headlines for taking aim at the “old, white men” of the NFL and accusing them of having a “slave mentality”, LeBron James has caused another stir, this time on social media. The NBA icon posted a photo of himself on Instagram captioned with lyrics from a song by American rapper 21 Savage, writing: “We getting that Jewish money. Everything is Kosher.” The LA Lakers star soon found himself under heavy fire for perpetuating a stereotype about Jewish people. Host of YouTube show Pittsburgh Sports Live Mike J. Asti wrote on Twitter: “Current NBA Commissioner Adam Silver...

    James made the comments on Friday night’s episode of HBO’s “The Shop” which is co-executive produced by the Los Angeles Lakers superstar. ..." James said the NFL was attempting to exert control over its players. "In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality," James said. "And it's like, 'This is my team. You do what the f--- I tell y'all to do. Or we get rid of y'all.’”

    A top Hollywood publicist says the excitement in Los Angeles over Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke is at a level he hasn't seen for a national liberal politician in years. Danny Deraney, whose clientele has included A-listers like Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Madonna, told NBC News in another profile of O'Rourke that he has effectively swept the famously progressive town off its feet: Danny Deraney, a Hollywood publicist who has worked with celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Madonna, said he hasn't seen Los Angeles this excited about a national politician in years.

    The leftist media is no stranger in attacking President Trump. Often, they will find a big name to interview hoping that the interviewee will verbally attack the president the left hates so much. Usually, the person talking obliges. The media will run the interview for a day or so to create a story. Last weekend, Don Lemon interviewed basketball star LeBron James about the opening of the I Promise School he started for at-risk and underprivileged children in Akron, Ohio. During the interview, Lemon naturally moved the questioning towards the president. It is no secret that James doesn’t like the...

    In light of LeBron James and Akron Public Schools’ creating the I Promise School for 240 third- and fourth-graders, thousands of folks have been inspired. They’ve been inspired to the point at which they have put a petition together calling for current U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to be fired. Indeed, they want James to be hired. […] As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, 4,240 people had signed the petition. …
  • LeBron James Didn’t Pay For Vast Majority of “His” School or “His” College Scholarships

    Last week I was on vacation when news broke about “LeBron James’s school” opening in Akron, Ohio. So I wasn’t on social media or watching much television. I did see that CNN sent Don Lemon for a sit-down interview with LeBron and ESPN sent Rachel Nichols for one and even the Wall Street Journal had a piece this morning about how amazing LeBron James is for paying for a school. Essentially every major media organization, and many of their employees, fell all over themselves to praise LeBron James as Mahatma Gandhi in sneakers. So call me crazy, but I assumed...

    For the Record: While much of the “mainstream” media has been fawning over NBA star LeBron James’ “I Promise School” for at-risk youth that he is launching in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, one little detail they all forgot to report was that local taxpayers making far less than his average of $33 million a year will be picking up the vast majority of its operating budget.

    A day after scoring 39 points against Portland, Michael Jordan took a different sort of shot this afternoon -- from one of his teammates. Craig Hodges, the Bulls' 3-point shooting specialist and one of the league's best, chided Jordan and other National Basketball Association players for failing to use their visibility to call attention to pressing social and political issues, from the deepening plight of inner-city youth to the failure of owners to hire more black head coaches. Hodges spoke after the other Bulls had left practice for the day, and Jordan could not be reached for comment. The 31-year-old...

    Outspoken Hollywood actor James Wood suggested on social media Saturday night that perhaps renowned conservative commentator Candace Owens should run for office one day. The nod came after she annihilated Hillary Clinton. The failed Democrat presidential nominee posted a tweet directed at NBA star LeBron James praising him for being such “a class act.” .@KingJames is a great family man, incredible ballplayer, gives back to his community, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. He’s a world class athlete and a class act. We need more like him in this world. — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) August 4, 2018 Clinton posted...

    Cognitive Dissonance: In recent days NBA star LeBron James appeared on host Don Lemon’s little-watched CNN program to complain about how POTUS Donald Trump is “dividing” America and fostering racism. Prominent black figures making such baseless claims about the president is nothing new. During the interview, however, James and Lemon also discussed the former’s opening of a new school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, for “at risk” black youths. It’s good that James is giving back to his community. Charity, for the most part, is admirable. But if he’s really concerned about protecting blacks who are ‘at risk,’ he...

    Supporters of President Trump are again gnashing their teeth, rolling their eyes, and recoiling at the prospect of Trump getting into a Twitter war with LeBron James, who is quite possibly the most famous and wealthiest athlete on the planet. Why can't Trump just focus on the issues and leave the celebrity/sports crap alone? Well you see, it goes much deeper than that. If the issue is never the issue on the Left, then the root cause and solution is ALWAYS the issue on the Right. Ignore the fact that Trump has been maligned 24/7 by James and his ilk...

According to Geoff Bennett of NBC News, Jordan released a statement through a spokesperson that read, "I support LJ. He's doing an amazing job for his community." On Friday night, Trump questioned James' intelligence and suggested he preferred Jordan: @realDonaldTrump LeBron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike! Jordan was the latest in a long line...

    President Donald J. Trump tweeted late last night his apparent distaste for CNN’s Don Lemon and NBA superstar Lebron James after an interview between the two aired on CNN, saying, “Don Lemon…made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.” But, during the conversation, James also indicated that he would not be willing to sit down with President Trump. Lemon asked him, "What would you say to the president if he were sitting right here?" James responded, "I would never sit across from him." The current Los Angeles Laker recently told CNN that he believes President Trump is using sports...

[Trump is] dividing us and what I've noticed over the last few months, he's kinda used sport to kinda divide us, and that's something that I can't relate to because I know that sport was the first time I ever was around someone white and I got the opportunity to see them and learn about them and they got an opportunity to learn about me and we became very good friends.

    Imaginary Tyranny: As POTUS Donald Trump soldiers on in his quest to Make America Great Again, the unhinged Left continues to see things that normal, rational people aren’t seeing. Like tyranny and oppression. Like the destruction of the Constitution. Like officially-sanctioned racism, as if Trump were handing down edicts from the Oval Office instructing his federal bureaucracy to return America to the 1850s. It’s madness to even think POTUS is a bigoted, racist tyrant-in-the-making, let alone that he even wants to be. But that’s the state of the Left as Trump Derangement Syndrome courses through their veins like a virus....

    LeBron James, one of the world’s most prominent athletes, believes President Donald Trump is using sports to try to divide Americans. In an interview with Don Lemon (which is slated to air in full on CNN Monday night), the three-time NBA champion who recently signed with the Los Angeles Lakers stated his belief that the president is using athletics to divide Americans.
