Detroit Pistons coach, Stan Van Gundy…is a knob. Lets just get that out of the way here.
He unloaded on Donald Trump last week, and lamented Americans on their decision to elect him as their President. Calling Trump the usual liberals choice of insults… racist, misogynistic and ethnic-centric…blah blah blah and blah.
He stated that he didn’t vote George W. Bush, but he was a good, honorable man with whom he had political differences so he didn’t vote for him but he could respect him. Then went on to say this:
“For our country to be where we are now, who took a guy who…I don’t think anybody can deny this guy is openly and brazenly racist and misogynistic and ethnic-centric, and say That’s OK with us, we’re going to vote for him anyway. This should not have happened and this is a move that’s equal to all the white people who voted for Trump in America going out and finding the first black person or Latino person or any other non-white person and spitting right smack in their face, that’s bascially what we did, “he argued. “And it blows my mind how we just don’t seem to learn some things that keep repeating themselves over and over again, it’s like the majority of the population in our country is retarded or something. this is a catastrophic decision the consequences of which will be carried throughout the following years and which will be particularly devastating for non-white Americans.”
Then came the grand finale…
He argued then that black NBA players should go to strike until the situation changes. (Basically until Trump is kicked out of the Presidency)
“Because of all of this and because I have that ability, I am hereby calling for a general strike of all black NBS players who have a bone to pick with the racist that’s supposedly going to be ‘the president of all Americans”. I want all of you to think very carefully about what I’m asking you to do and I want you to consider the alternative long and hard before you make a decision. They want us to think that we have no say in this, that we’re just supposed to play ball as if we’re entertainers in some circus. I’m telling you that you and all other sports personalities and athletes, all of you have the power to move people and make them see what’s going to happen if we don’t react.”
Oh he goes on and on actually….if you want to hear more of his nonsense you can by clicking HERE
Truth be told, the man has lost his mind. Somehow, he and others like him that are singing to the same crazy tune, have found a way to take complete truths, pick form them the parts that can be misunderstood in the most damaging way and focused on those.
Ridiculous. It makes zero sense for black NBA players to do what he is calling on them to do.
First of all, they are good not just because of their talent, but because of their fans…they are successful not just because they have a skill, but because of their fans.
There fans are made up of many different races. An action like what this man is asking they do only FEEDS the very problem he is claiming he has with Trump.
He can go slap himself.
