San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has one of the loudest most ill-informed mouths in all of the woke NBA, repeatedly spouting untrue, leftist garbage. But this week he went all-in for his hate for the U.S. Constitution with the lie that the Second Amendment is a ‘myth.”
Per Fox News:
“I just wondered because we have a governor and lieutenant governor and an attorney general that made it easier to have more guns,” Popovich said, referring to Texas officials, according to ESPN. “That was a response to our kids getting murdered. I just thought that was a little bit strange decision. It’s just me, though.”
“Well, since you guys asked, what would it take to budge those people? What would it take?”
He then started on his essay about Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson, the two Democrats who were expelled from the Tennessee legislature for their roles in a protest calling for gun control after the March 27 shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville, which killed six people, including three children.
“I mean, we’ve got two young Black guys in Tennessee who just got railroaded by a bunch of people that I would bet down deep in their soul want to go back to Jim Crow,” Popovich said. “And what they just did is a good start. It’s beyond comprehension. And what were they guilty of? They actually protested?”
He then likened the Second Amendment to a “myth.”
“But they’re going to cloak all this stuff [in] the myth of the Second Amendment, the freedom,” he added. “You know, it’s just a myth. It’s a joke. It’s just a game they play. I mean, that’s freedom. Is it freedom for kids to go to school and try to socialize and try to learn and be scared to death that they might die that day?”
“But Ted Cruz will fix it because he is going to double the number of cops in the schools. That’s what he wants to do. Well, that’ll create a great environment. Is that freedom? Or is it freedom to have a congressman who can make a postcard with all his family holding rifles, including an AR-15 or whatever. Is that cool? Is that like street cred for a Republican? That’s freedom? That’s more important than protecting kids? I don’t get it.”
Popocivh is a flat out liar. There is no “myth” about the Second Amendment. It is a founding principle of the United States.
