Candace Owens Blames LeBron James for LA Sheriff Shooting

Conservative commentator Candace Owens called out “pea-brained” NBA star LeBron James for inciting the hatred for police that led to two sheriffs being shot in Los Angeles on Saturday.

In a video, released by the LA County Sheriffs, a suspect can be seen walking up to a police SUV and firing through the passenger window unprovoked, before fleeing.

Owens slammed the idolization of “pea-brained celebrities” for the motive behind the shooting, specifically naming Los Angeles Lakers player Lebron James as responsible for telling “young black men that they are ‘literally being hunted.’”  

In a May 6 tweet, James stated that “We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes,” in response to the killing of Ahmaud Arbery as he jogged through a Georgia neighborhood. 

James has become the most outspoken social activist in the NBA, creating the “More Than a Vote” initiative with a group of athletes to combat Black voter suppression and leading a player boycott of the playoffs after the Jacob Blake police shooting. 

The league itself has been on the forefront of BLM demonstrations in professional sports, with players kneeling on courts painted with “Black Lives Matter,” wearing black shirts with the same phrase.  

Owens criticized professional athletes for supporting Blake, who was charged with felony sexual assault,  by putting “the name of an alleged RAPIST on their helmets and jerseys,” which she believes has the consequence of causing criminals to “begin believing they are acting as heroes.”  

 She also extended her blame to entertainers, “complicit media organizations,” and Black Lives Matter for creating a “racist, anti-police” rhetoric that left two deputies critically wounded after they were ambushed in Compton on Saturday night.  

Protesters congregated outside of the hospital the 31-year-old woman and 24-year-old man were being treated, shouting “We hope they die.” 

President Trump condemned the shooter at his Nevada rally on Sunday.  “If you murder a police officer, you should receive the death penalty.” He called the shooter “an animal,” and tweeted, “If they die, fast trial death penalty for the killer.”

AT least some black people understand what’s going on and trying to do something about it. If we have a Biden/Harris = Commie take over there may not be any pro ball teams.Even if there is, people may not have any money to come watch after Biden raises taxes sky high.
See any million dollar paying teams in any commie country?. You play for the state at their pay and leisure or not at all. If you refuse you may be in an reeducation camp like China. Think About it?

are the NBA players or activist for violence, they are pay to play, there is no politic on the playing grounds, either play or get out and become an active activist, see how much money you are going to get. STOP THE B.S. LEBRON JAMES. all black players are making ton of money for playing baseball, football, basketball, so they all should stop playing to sport that have given them a merit that probably does not deserve, people ought to stop watching their games and stop going to their games and see where they will wound up. I do not watch basketball, football, and if baseball players are going to do the same, I will stop altogether. these players must conduct themselves as models for our new generation, but they are destroying the mind of these young kids, their ignorance is shameful, their stupidity is beyond reasoning.

Thank you, Ms. Owens for pointing out at least one of the racist pieces of garbage in the NBA. Lebron James is worthless as a “human being.” And, soon, he will be worthless as a basketball player. I am still hoping for a broken leg at midcourt and they have to shoot him.

I love Candice. She speaks her mind and it is the TRUTH. BLM is not a newly found branch of the Boy Scouts. They are anti-American and RACIST.

I watched this video several times and it seems the shooter was shorter than the height of the car. It looks like a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor that measures 4-feet, 10-inches high. And the escape reminds one of a little person, midget perhaps or pre-adolescent.

L. James is a worthless, miserable human being. May you rot in hell at an early age for teaching racial hatred. May you never play basketball again,
