Black Lives Matter isn’t even pretending to care about black lives anymore.
They are trying to attack the police at any cost.
LeBron James made an unbelievable threat that could destroy an American hero.
On Monday in the Cincinnati area, a 13-year-old girl died after another 13-year-old girl stabbed her with a pocket knife in her neck.
The death of Nyaira Givens hasn’t gotten widespread media attention. No one is posting about her life that was lost. The cops arrived at the scene after she was stabbed, after it was too late for them to help.
There was immediate backlash after the police officer who shot and killed a black teenager Tuesday afternoon in Columbus, but if he hadn’t stepped in there well might have been another victim like Nyaira Givens.
When the police officer shot, the body camera footage shows that 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant was about to swing a knife at the other young female wearing a pink tracksuit and trapped against a car.
The police officer was not acting to protect himself; he was trying to save the life of a young black girl.
NBA star LeBron James posted a photograph of the officer on Twitter and captioned it, “YOU’RE NEXT. #ACCOUNTABILITY.”
The backlash was so strong that James deleted the tweet but he didn’t apologize.
Later Wednesday evening, James returned to Twitter to attempt to justify himself.
“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY,” he wrote.
The National Fraternal Order of Police said James’ tweet was “disgraceful.”
James, “with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless,” the NFOP tweeted Wednesday in response.
Senator Ted Cruz called the tweet “grossly irresponsible.”
“The left consistently goes after, attacks and demonizes police officers … often before the facts are known, often before there is any evidence of what happened,” Cruz told “Fox News Primetime,” “but their immediate reaction, whenever there is an incident, is that police officer is in the wrong.
“And in this instance, ‘you’re next’ could certainly be interpreted by some, even, as a call for violence. I think it was a grossly irresponsible message for LeBron James to send out.”
The NBA and James’ team, the Los Angeles Lakers, haven’t responded to requests for comment and are staying quiet.
James’ sponsors have also said nothing. “Fox News also made attempts to reach out for comment regarding the anti-cop tweet to some of James’ sponsors, including Nike, Pepsi, General Motors, Beats Electronics and Walmart, but none have answered as of Thursday morning,” Fox reported.
