Sen. Ted Cruz Blasts Lebron James for ‘Call to Violence’ Tweet

Wikimedia Commons, By Michael Vadon

Texas Republican senator Ted Cruz said Lebron James “you’re next” tweet towards one of the officers involved in the fatal shooting of an Ohio teenager was “grossly irresponsible.”

Democratic Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown announced that “while the verdict was being read in the Derek Chauvin trial, Columbus police shot and killed a sixteen-year-old girl. Her name was Ma’Khia Bryant. She should be alive right now.”

The LA Lakers star then tweeted a photo of the officer with the caption “YOU’RE NEXT” alongside an hourglass emoji and the hashtag #ACCOUNTABILITY.”

Cruz took to Fox News Primetime to call out the NBA superstar for his since deleted tweet.  

“The left consistently goes after, attacks and demonizes police officers … often before the facts are known, often before there is any evidence of what happened, but their immediate reaction, whenever there is an incident, is that police officers is in the wrong,” Cruz commented. “And in this instance, ‘you’re next’ could certainly be interpreted by some, even, as a call for violence. I think it was a grossly irresponsible message for LeBron James to send out.”

He highlighted the fact that James ignored the body camera footage that showed the victim attacking a woman with a knife. “By any measure, it was a volatile situation. The woman who was killed was wielding a knife, was violent, appeared to be threatening the [lives] of others,” Cruz remarked. “It may well be, on an investigation, that this police officer saved the life of a potential victim of a knife attack and we shouldn’t jump to conclusions.”

Despite erasing the inflammatory tweet, James doubled down on his messaging. “ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself!” He wrote. “Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”

“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police,” he followed up. Explaining that he had removed the prior post because it was being “used to create more hate.”

I am not dark skinned… I am what most call white. I think we are all different shades of brown. But, I can understand how so many dark-skinned people feel used. They are CONSTANTLY used by condemned-o-crats in any way they can to get them riled up to cause more hatred and violence.

Lebron, why don’t you go to Chicago and try to do some good on the inner city streets on a weekend?

Maybe LeBron should spend some time in Chicago, the shooting capital of the US. March 2021 286 shooting, 243 wounded, 43 killed, 83% of the killings were black on black. YTD Chicago 2020 720 shootings, 589 wounded, 131 killed. Go see da mayor of Chicago and ask what you can do to stop or slow down all these shootings in the black community.

Lebron James, besides being illiterate, is a major hater. You can see the hate in his face, his tweets and in his life. This fool makes hundreds of millions of dollars and yet he can only work to trash the country that provided the opportunity for such success. By the way, the ratings for the NBA finals with Mr. James and the Lakers, were down 70%. When will the Lakers cut his pay? He’s making the Lakers look like a bunch of idiots for allowing him to ruin the reputation of a great franchise. No matter how many games he wins, he’s still a loser.

I would like to start out by saying that, I don’t have enough words to say how much I HATE THIS THUG! Ok
Next, isn’t it about time that people really STOP WATCHING these overpaid, privileged black thugs? I know people like sports, especially men. But, really it’s time to walk away and NEVER LOOK BACK. We’re upset about many different things. We talk a tough talk, but we MUST DELIVER. We had 2 like minded couples over for dinner the other day. All had abandoned all sorts of social media. They were fed up. It took no time, 2 were back on Facebook. I had no words.
We’re either all in, or stop complaining and whining. This is so incredibly frustrating.

The Black culture is overwhelmingly self-privileged, Dem and self-entitled, and resistant to authority of any kind, from following police commands, to following traffic laws, to walking in the middle of streets. They simply do not believe in following the rules and are selfish, self-centered beyond description. There is simply no living with them or Progressives.

If you questioned if LeBron is racist against whites just see how he acts towards them .That police officer saved that girl’s life and LeDumbass is pissed because he is white.He is so racist against whites that all he cared about is seeing a white guy.He is consumed with hatred and NBA should not allow him to play for his threat against a policeman saving someone’s life.He boldly shows his contempt for whites.

WELL LEBRON MAYBE THE BLACK PEOPLE AS WELL AS ALL PEOPLE SHOULD DO WHAT THE POLICE SAY MAYBE YOU OF ALL PEOPLE SHOULD GET OUT THERE AND PROMOTE THAT INSTEAD OF BACK BENCHING THE ENTIRE SITUATION AND BEING SO TIRED. I’M TIRED OF FAILED SPORTS FIGURES AND POLITICIANS JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS EVERY TIME THERE IS A POLICE SHOOTING OR A SHOOTING IN GENERAL. HAVENT HEARD MUCH FROM THE MEDIA ABOUT THAT GUY THAT RAN OVER THE POLICE OFFICER AT THE CAPITOL OR THE SHOOTING IN COLORADO. DIDNT FIT THE TEMPLATE DID IT.

Democrat party is the party of hate. They are anti law and order, anti family and anti God. Very frustrating to hear them spout their hatred. If the policeman didn’t react, more deaths could have occurred. Police are between a rock and hard place.

Those who claim “injustice” are those who have made millions due to the American system. In order to make it work, one needs to see both sides and evaluate for themselves. The real blame lies with the once beautiful house on the hill in Washington DC. It is disgusting how more banana republic we are becoming because of Joe Hussein O’Biden; Kamel-A Hardass; Maxine (Racist) Watters; The O’Bummers; The Clintons; and all the dems and RINO’S whose success is dependent on Capitalism and who constantly berate our country.

It is unfortunate anyone gets shot by the police but just some FACTS….for the years 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 the largest group killed by the police were white. The second larges group were blacks at half the number of whites, then Hispanic then Asians. (This is something Chris Cuomo should look at after his remarks that nothing will change until cops start killing white people.)

In the face of what is already a terrible situation, a person dying, it is definitely not helpful for anyone to shoot their mouth off before the facts are known, particularly people that are well known like LeBron and Maxine Waters. Now that the video is public and obviously shows a woman with a knife about to stab another woman with the knife, it becomes clear the officer acted to save the woman about to get stabbed, who ,one might note, was black. Would she have died from being stabbed or permanently disabled? We don’t, an won’t, know but she for sure would have been hurt.

So where is the BLM as to caring about the BLACK woman about to be stabbed and saved by the white cop? Is it true BLM really only cares about black lives relative to those killed by a white cop? Hundreds of blacks are killed by blacks every week across the country….don’t their lives matter? Let’s work to stop all killings regardless of race of either victim or perpetrator.

So the cops shot a “cute”, wonderful, young 250 pound 16 year black girl about to knife another girl. Was the other girl a black girl? If so, then the cop saved her life. Just play bball LeBron, we don’t care for your racist, anti-cop opinion.

Gravel voice Sherrod Brown should have shut up. He jumped on the bandwagon to stir up more violence in hopes of democrats gaining more power. He’s a real piece of work.

Lebron,ask yourself this question, when will black people stop killing other black people?That should be the question because more black people are killed by their own race than by police. Statistics don’t lie. You may have a high school education but you have never truly been educated before running your mouth. Great basketball player but you got no sense and no class.
