On Thursday, Bellevue Mayor Ned Burns released a statement saying that the Fire Marshal’s office has relieved one of their police officers who had made a TikTok video poking fun at the anti-police rhetoric spewed by NBA darling LeBron James. The viral video garnered 3.9 million views.
Nate Silvester was reportedly fired as part of a suspected “political play” after the officer caught national headlines for challenging the basketball player’s authority on social topics.
James, known for a blind political agenda that bounces in any direction like the Dennis Rodman rebounding meme, has long been an advocate for contemporary police reform in an effort to defeat the supposed “systemic racism polluting police departments across America.” Data strongly suggests that the lack of police presence in America leads to a rise in murder rates and overall crime, especially those in areas prone to riots since May 2020.
Just recently, live coverage of the George Floyd memorial caught an exchange of gunfire that resulted in one hospitalization.
James and other members of the media continue to villainize police departments and hardworking responders, and their inciteful rhetoric encourages members of society to loot and burn cities, causing the deterioration of American integrity and greater loss of life.
When discussing the George Floyd Justice In Policing Act, James said the following: “It holds a lot of accountability. I think it will make our communities, and make this great nation, a better place. So I’m all for that.”
LeBron, whose national pride never seems to relate to America, always seizes the opportunity to drive a wedge between the African American community and good cops in America. Don’t let the tweets fool you.
Though black parents, spouses, toddlers, and neighbors are still being shot in the streets due to a lack of policing, James turns a blind eye to their suffering but still insists he truly cares about struggling communities.
As long as there’s Wi-Fi in Brentwood, you can count on James to continue providing his progressive outlook to average Americans. Lucky us.
