The NFL kneelers had every reason to expect he’d take their side in their flame war against Trump. But he didn’t.
Back in the day, NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown had no trouble weighing in on politics. In fact, when Brown disappointed the Left by saying John Lewis was wrong to call Trump ‘illegitimate’ one article in the Nation lamented that ‘defection’. It had described Brown as being:
someone my editor once called “part of the holy trinity of athlete-activists with Muhammad Ali and Bill Russell.” — the Nation
That’s rarified air indeed.
But in the age of “let’s all get Trump”, as that same article indicated, Brown’s public positions went a little differently than some of the activists and community organizers might have hoped.
Brown has taken up a defense of President Trump.
And if you think that’s weird — wait until you see his explanation for WHY he’s done so. (From the audio with TMZ Sports:)
I should be criticizing Trump on every level because he does certain things that call for criticism but when I look at television I see all these announcers become experts and they’re pointing the fingers and they’re not doing a doggone thing but pointing their fingers, I find myself really pulling for the president.
Now, that would make me very unpopular in the black community, very unpopular with a lot of Americans … but I think that there are certain good things that are coming out of this presidency because we’ve never seen anything like it.
Did you catch that?
Brown made it clear that there are some specific things about Trump, his priorities, or his behavior that he does NOT like.
He ALSO made it clear that NORMALLY, he probably would have spoken up about it.
But he happened to notice that everyone and their dog has been piling on Trump. [To be perfectly clear to any MSNBC employees that may stumble upon this, that wasn’t an Omarosa reference.]
So guess what? He got sick of the endless Media and cultural dog-pile, and he stood up for Trump, despite any smaller grievances he might have had.
He saw the lopsided Media(D) hammering on every little flaw, ignoring every victory, and he saw them for the cheats that they are.
You don’t think he’s the only one who’s made that decision, do you?
He isn’t. #WalkAway
The Left has nobody to blame but themselves. We even WARNED them that ‘doubling down’ in their stupid resistance would result in more people supporting Trump… not that any of them actually believed us.
But having them ignore what we’re saying and disproving our statements are not the same thing.
