The progressive left is collectively losing its mind over an old Instagram post by a star baseball player. The post is from 2013.
According to The Daily Wire:
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.”
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.
