After 8 long years of every issue being based on Race, isn’t this a refreshing change?
Jim Brown is NO race-baiter.
He was a Badass ‘Never wore hip pads’ NFL Legend and he’s got a few things to say after a visit to Trump Tower.
RUSH: Jim Brown yesterday on CNN newsroom, he was talking to the anchorette, Brooke Baldwin, who said, “You have fought on behalf of a lot of the working class and middle class over your lifetime, Mr. Brown. Speak to those people in this country who feel like they’re not being listened to or being represented.”
BROWN: I’ve been out there for many, many years in the ghettos across this country. I fell in love with him because he really talks about helping African-American, black people, and that’s why I’m here.
BALDWIN: You fell in love with Donald Trump today?
BROWN: When he goes through what he went through to become the president, he got my admiration, because no one gave him a chance. They called him names. People that called him names when he won, he reached back and brought them along with him. He held no grudges. The reception I got today from him, I’ll always remember that, because he listened to us, and he knows that we can bring something to him to help the people of this country. — Rush Limbaugh
See that kids? Take note. Respect must be earned! And Trump earned Jim Brown’s.
..One more Jim Brown bite with this is also Anderson Cooper 99. Look, this is interesting stuff. Cooper says, “The people that Trump is gonna have with him in the cabinet are predominantly white, predominantly male. Are you bothered by that at all, Mr. Brown?”
BROWN: A lot of the black people in my community might think I’m a sellout by saying this. The three greatest people in my life as a young person were white. I’m not a person that really deals in color.
BROWN: I recognize the inequities certain cultures have to go through. I understand the history of slavery. I know all those things. But I’m not a victim. I can vote, I can participate, I can invest my money, I can invest my time, and that’s what I’m doing. I’m not working for anybody. I’m not making any money doing what I’m doing. I’m doing it because someone did it for me.
RUSH: “The three greatest people in my life as a young person were white. … I’m not a victim,” and the Democrats sneer when they hear things like that. —Rush Limbaugh
Obviously, Anderson Cooper was NOT thrilled to hear that.
When citizens aren’t VICTIMS… they don’t need a political party to rush in as their savior.
And what do the Democrats really have to offer if you take that away?
Not much. Thank you Jim Brown, for saying what so desperately NEEDS to be said.
