LeBron James is one of the most outspoken political activists in any sport.
But James just met his match.
And this NBA player just made a fool out of LeBron James with a jaw-dropping protest.
LeBron James fancies himself offering expert opinions on whether or not police shootings were justified, Donald Trump’s Presidency, and whether or not Republicans supposedly “suppressed” the vote.
But last year, when Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong and against Communist Chinese oppression, James claimed to not know anything about the matter.
James knew plenty to understand that if James spoke up against Communist Chinese oppression it would terminate the league’s business relationship with the modern day Evil Empire and cost the NBA hundreds of millions of dollars.
It was a supreme act of cowardice.
Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter chose the path of courage.
Kanter tweeted out a video calling Communist Chinese president Xi Jingping a “brutal dictator” and demanded a free Tibet.

The Communist Chinese government responded by blocking Celtics games in the country and censoring social media accounts related to the team.
But Kanter didn’t cower in fear like LeBron James.
Instead, Kanter doubled down with a second video where Kanter blasted Xi Jingping as a “heartless dictator” and demanded Xi close down the concentration camps where the Communist Chinese hold 1.5 million Uyghur Muslims as slave laborers and commit genocide on the religious and ethnic minority.
Heartless Dictator of China,
XI JINPING and the Communist Party of China.
I am calling you out in front of the whole world.
Close down the SLAVE labor camps and free the UYGHUR people!
Stop the GENOCIDE, now!#FreeUyghurs pic.twitter.com/eEoiw5Uz2K

Frauds like James and Colin Kaepernick think they are brave for attacking the police or Donald Trump.
But Enes Kanter showed them the true meaning of political bravery by speaking out against Communist China’s brutality no matter the consequences for himself, his team, or the league.
