    Surge Summary: He may be one of the all-time greats on the hardwood floor, but NBA great Lebron James is revealing in other ways he’s just a standard-issue, ill-informed Leftist, pushing a fusty and false anti-American narrative.

    There are persistent rumors that LeBron James is planning to pursue a political career in Ohio.  There were reports that he heavily influenced the decision of MLB Commissioner Manfred to pull the All-Star Game out of Georgia.

    No one questions James’s skill on the basketball court.  He is a scoring machine.  But while we can celebrate his athletic abilities, we don’t need to elevate him to public office.

    Reacting to Ma’Khia Bryant’s death, James tweeted a photo of the Columbus police officer with the caption, “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.”

    The tweet was widely seen as a threat to the officer’s life, and a clear incitement to violence.  The Fraternal Order of Police blasted James for “gaslighting” America, and condemned his tweet as “disgraceful and extremely reckless.”

    After a fierce backlash, James eventually deleted the tweet.  But he lashed out at his critics, insisting they were the ones creating “more hate,” and adding, “This isn’t about one officer. It’s about the entire system. . .”

    [Editor: James also followed up with this tweet: “ANGER does any of us any good [sic] and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though!” he tweeted. “My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”]

    So, there you go.  James is just another run-of-the-mill, anti-American leftist who thinks the entire system is racist.  He rakes in millions while stepping over black bodies killed by gangs and criminals because he is fixated on the left’s false narratives.
