This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.
Basketball superstar LeBron James has reportedly made $50 million per year in endorsements. But that was before he sided with Communist China against freedom-fighters in Hong Kong and American values.
How much was that endorsement worth? It may be no exaggeration to say: Priceless.
LeBron evidently felt triggered by Daryl Morey’s now-famous Tweet, in which the Houston Rockets general manager urged: “Fight for Freedom, Stand with Hong Kong.”
James responded, “I believe [Morey] wasn’t educated on the situation at hand…and so many people could have been harmed, not only financially, but physically.”
It takes a special kind of uneducated not to know that Communist China is harming many people in Hong Kong right now. Worse yet, shameless appeasers like LeBron only further embolden Chinese dictator Xi Jinping, who recently promised to have his opponents’ “bodies smashed and bones ground to powder.”
