Martinez's family fled from the dictatorial regime of Fidel Castro. It seems like he is well versed in knowing that it is important to hold tyranny at bay.
Back in 2013, years before everything would become “literally Hitler,” Boston Red Sox star J.D. Martinez posted a photo on Instagram to show his support for the Second Amendment.
Now he’s been forced to apologize for the 5-year-old post, because it contained a photo of Adolf Hitler and a fake quote.
The photo featured an alleged quote from Hitler saying: “To conquer a nation, First disarm it’s [sic] citizens.” The photo has been used to suggest that taking away lawful gun owner’s guns — as some gun-control advocates want — would lead to a dictatorship.
He captioned his Instagram post with: “This is why I always stay strapped! #the truth.”
