Fox Sports’ Jason Whitlock: ‘Foolish,’ ‘Laughable’ for LeBron to Think of Himself as Ali or MLK

Published

On a recent episode of Fox Sports 1’s “Speak For Yourself,” Jason Whitlock, one of the most prominent and highly acclaimed sportswriters in America, weighed in on the continuing media firestorm around the war of words between NBA superstar LeBron James and Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

While Whitlock applauded both Ingraham and James for leveraging the opportunity of the feud to help each of their brands, it was LeBron’s decision to compare himself to Muhammad Ali and Martin Luther King Jr. that earned Whitlock’s ire.

“[LeBron James] compared himself to Muhammad Ali and Martin Luther King Jr.,” Whitlock said. “Do you understand Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, these guys went and met their critics head-on, had their thoughts challenged, sharpened, defeated many people in public debates. LeBron is not doing any of that. He’s not being challenged.”

Doubling-down on his crisicism of James, Whitlock went on to cut a special promo video for “Speak For Yourself” in which he delivered a similar monolog on the subject, this time singling out the mainstream media’s role in the situaiton.

“The news media have ignored this comparison, because it’s much easier, safer, and clickable to explore James’ feud with a television personality, Laura Ingraham, he’d never heard of,” Whitlock began.

“I’m not going to ignore the comparison – it’s laughable, it’s foolish,” Whitlock continued. “It cheapens the boldness and the courage it takes to truly compete in the marketplace of intellectual ideas.”

“LeBron James is well-intentioned, but if he truly wants to be a powerful voice on social issues, he needs to have his ideas sharpened by competing in the marketplace of ideas,” Whitlock said. “Or he can remain blind to the simple things he clearly doesn’t know.”

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time LeBron James has compared a current athlete with Martin Luther King and Muhammad Ali.

Back in November 2017, James compared unemployed back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick to King and Ali.

“I’ve commended [Kaepernick], and for him to sacrifice everything for the greater good for everyone, for what he truly believed in, the utmost respect to him,” James told ESPN. “Obviously he had a vision like Martin Luther King and like some of our all-time greats that people couldn’t see further than what they were doing at the point and time. And Muhammad Ali and things of that nature. When it’s something that’s new and it’s something that people are not educated about or don’t understand what your beliefs are all about, people are so quick to judge, and people are so quick to say that what you’re doing is wrong.”

Bezos-Linked Thinktank Official Calls for Michael Anton’s Execution for Exposing Anti-Trump Color Revolution

Published

A top official with the billionaire-backed Berggruen Institute has called for the kidnapping and execution of writer Michael Anton for exposing the color revolution coup that is taking place to oust President Donald Trump from office regardless of November’s voting results.

Claremont Institute President Ryan Williams highlighted the grotesque tweet made by Vice President of Programs Nils Gilman comparing Anton to French fascist sympathizer Robert Brasillach:

The Berggruen Institute has collaborated intently with the Washington Post in the past. The rag, owned by Amazon founder and technocratic globalist Jeff Bezos, worked with Berggruen on WorldPost, which later became Noema Magazine. They regularly publish pretentious drivel that virtually nobody reads.

Big League Politics has reported about the coup attempt that is in the works through the Soros-backed Transition Integrity Project:

A Soros-backed “election integrity” group is setting the stage for a revolution against President Donald Trump after November’s election.

The Transition Integrity Project, an organization featuring a bipartisan group of Trump haters, is claiming that President Donald Trump will cause violence if he disputes the upcoming election results. They are running simulations that they claim indicate that Trump and his supporters will create mayhem.

“All of our scenarios ended in both street-level violence and political impasse,” said Rosa Brooks, a professor of law and policy at Georgetown University, who set up the TIP. “The law is essentially … it’s almost helpless against a president who’s willing to ignore it,” she added.

Revolver noted that Brooks is an operative of George Soros with ties to his Open Society Institute going back decades. She served as Special Counsel to the President at the Open Society Institute in New York from 2006-07.

Brooks’ deep connections to Soros have helped her successfully navigate the ranks of the Washington D.C. elite. She was senior adviser to Assistant Secretary Harold Hongju Koh at the U.S. State Department. She taught at the University of Virginia School of Law before moving over to Georgetown. She is also on the Advisory Committee of National Security Action and the Steering Committee of the Leadership Council for Women in National Security. Her deep state bona fides are second to none.

Two of the Republicans who participated in Brooks’ study are neocons Bill Kristol and David Frum. They were the type of individuals tasked with war gaming as President Trump, the man who they have devoted their careers to opposing. Kristol is now funded by a Democrat oligarch and Frum continues to parrot Russian collusion lies to this very day.

“Our scenario exercises did not end in good places, but important to note that this does not mean that there is something inevitable about chaos and constitutional crisis in the coming months – just that these particular exercises suggest that these are real possibilities,” Brooks said about her study’s findings.

“The goal of the exercises was not to give people nightmares, but rather to identify possible inflection points to prevent or mitigate catastrophic outcomes to the 2020 presidential election,” she added.

Brooks hopes that policymakers act on the findings of her study, adding that “state governors, attorneys general, legislative leaders and secretaries of state need to think through these issues now, and understand the electoral system and relevant laws now, and not wait until Election Day to think about everything that could go wrong.”

Darren Beattie of Revolver has also exposed this dastardly plot by the left-wing fifth column that has implanted itself at the highest levels of government:

The far left is playing for keeps. If conservatives are not willing to do whatever is necessary to defeat this threat, America and Western Civilization will be no more.
