Ever since Donald Trump told the Golden State Warriors and the band of virtue singaliers who play for them they are no longer invited to The White House Steph Curry has been trying to act like he knows anything about Politics. He penned a letter for The Player Tribune that is a shot at Trump while mirroring itself as him wanting to change our country. Here are some lines from it.
I guess it’s tempting, sometimes, to think that it doesn’t mean anything. With everyone out there on Twitter, and Facebook, and IG and all of that … with all of the opinions and narratives that are always flying every which way on cable news … it’s a lot of noise. And you hear enough of that noise, and you kind of start to wonder if anyone can — or even wants to — hear anyone else at all.
But if there’s anything I’ve learned this year, it’s that all of that noise we keep hearing — it’s not an accident. We’re hearing that noise because there are real people out there, facing real issues, and real inequalities, some in ways like never before. In 2017, in America, silence is no longer an option.
Now, what Curry doesn’t point out is that this noise is not represented by fact. The noise is something called hysteria, created by the Mainstream Media. They don’t care that the Police are racist narrative is a myth. They don’t care that the cases we have seen that have been pushed by the Mainstream Media as evidence of this have all proved them wrong after investigations were done. But you see Curry is to ignorant to know any of this. He goes along living his millionaire lifestyle without caring about the voices of the Trump supporters. There is noise because the Mainstream Media manufactures noise, not because of social injustices.
The next part is where he once again shows ignorance.
But when someone tells me that my stances, or athlete stances in general, are “disrespecting the military” — which has become a popular thing to accuse peaceful protestors of — it’s something that I’m going to take very, very seriously. One of the beliefs that I hold most dear is how proud I am to be an American — and how incredibly thankful I am for our troops. I know how fortunate I am to live in this country, and to do what I do for a living, and to raise my daughters in peace and prosperity. But I also hear from plenty of people who don’t have it nearly as good as I do. Plenty of people who are genuinely struggling in this country. Especially our veterans.
And every single veteran I’ve spoken to, they’ve all said pretty much the exact same thing: That this conversation we’ve started to have in the world of sports … whether it’s been Colin kneeling, or entire NFL teams finding their own ways to show unity, or me saying that I didn’t want to go to the White House — it’s the opposite of disrespectful to them.
A lot of them have said, that even if they don’t totally agree with every position of every person, this is exactly the thing that they fought to preserve: the freedom of every American to express our struggles, our fears, our frustrations, and our dreams for a more equal society.
First, Mr. Curry, nobody said you couldn’t kneel. The argument that is being made is not for the arresting of the kneelers but rather the boycotting of the NFL. You have every right to peaceful protest and we have every right to not watch or buy your product. You see how that works? The First Amendment protects you from being persecuted by the Government for your speech. It doesn’t force people to have to listen to your nonsense. The point about all of these veterans you have spoken too. Maybe you should come out of your bubble and pay attention to the vast majority of Veterans who can’t stand you and your virtue singaling friends. Polls show that America stands with Trump and the veterans on this issue, not the spoiled brat athletes. For the final point on this, I’ll talk about Colin Kaepernick. Mr. Curry, do you stand with Colin when he wore socks depicting Cops as pigs to practice? Do you stand with his flaunting over communist terrorists who are behind the deaths of thousands of innocent people? You see Curry when you look at things through fact and not a fantasy world you realize that Americans and Trump don’t disagree with you because Americans hate free speech, they do it because your argument is dumb.
Curry proved his ultimate ignorance with the last quote I’ll touch on.
“Let’s talk about the broken VA medical system, and traumatic brain injuries, and PTSD. But let’s also talk about homelessness, and unemployment, and mental health, and, yes, racial inequality,”
Isn’t it weird that things Trump ran on actually make the cut in this statement. Trump has worked to fix the broken VA system that Obama only made worse. Trump’s entire message was to bring jobs back and get people off the street. Unemployment is better than it was under Obama right now, more people are working. After every mass shooting, Trump has talked about the mental health problem we have in this country. Curry it is your political side that actually shoots this down whenever it is brought up.
If you want to know why Americans are getting tired of these athletes this is a perfect example of it. They represent the thoughts of Hollywood elitists and not the American people.
