Between the low-speed chase in his white Bronco and his infamous murder trial, OJ is an unlikely voice of reason in the discussion of police use of force… but we live in crazy times.
Lebron wasted no time in whipping up even more anti-cop sentiment over the incident where a cop answering a 911 call over a female assailant with a knife heard an explicit threat to stab the f*** out of someone followed by an obvious intent to make good on that threat, with an upraised blade over a trapped victim.
Lebron looked at that situation saw an evil cop who wanted to murder a black person.
The world we now live in is a Bizarro world where the fact-free media will crank up the emotional outrage to eleven, because it’s good for clicks and profits.
At the same time, a man whose anger management failings and brushes with the law have outshone his famous athletic achievements, is addressing the issue with dispassionate language and a measured tone. He even called out the deceptively-edited footage.
Yes, he still echoes some of the woke language ideas, but that’s not the pointe here. OJ is one of the few voices friendly to the left who stripped away the overheated emotion and looked at the particular facts of the case.

We highlighted a few phrases that stood out to us.
Hey Twitter world, it’s me, yours truly.
Tough morning, listening to all the criticism that Lebron James is getting…
I’m a fan of Lebron. I admire the work that he’s done, how he’s helped his community and how he’s helped his friends and he’s been fighting all of these social issues, especially that of systemic racism in the legal system and with the police departments across our country, but you can’t fight every battle you know.
You can’t– you gotta pick your battles. I mean, it’s a war that must be fought but sometimes you need to take your time and be a little more patient before you comment on some of these bad incidences that are happening with police departments.
Lebron should have waited. I’m a little upset with most of the media because they showed us edited versions of what took place with the girl with the knife. They made it sound as if this was another police officer overreacting and killing a young, black American.
Well, what I saw when I saw the full tape, police — guy had no choice. He responded. We wish he could have pulled a taser. We wish he could have done it another way, but in that instance, if he hadn’t done what he did, it appeared to me that another young American would have had her life taken.
I can’t fault what he did. I wish it was different, but I can’t fault him.
Lebron, keep fighting the fight, but I think we all gotta be a little more patient.
I’m against defunding the police. I think you gotta just redirect some of those funds to better training and maybe dealing with more psychological training.
In any event, God bless, wear your mask, get your shots. I’m just sayin’.
Check out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
