A bar in Ohio is banning NBA games on its televisions until LeBron James is expelled from the league. Linnie’s Pub is located in Delhi Township near Cincinnati.
“If anyone wants to watch an NBA game, don’t come to Linnie’s Pub,” owner Jay Linneman said. “We will not air them until LeBron James has been expelled from the NBA.”
LeBron has faced a huge backlash that did not stop when he deleted the Tweet in question and called for all the facts to come out. He said, “Anger does any of us any good and that includes myself. Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!”
Sen. Ted Cruz said: “The left consistently goes after, attacks and demonizes police officers often before the facts are known, often before there is any evidence of what happened but their immediate reaction, whenever there is an incident, is that police officers are in the wrong.
“By any measure, it was a volatile situation. The woman who was killed was wielding a knife, was violent, appeared to be threatening the lives of others.
“The facts should be determined, but the left doesn’t care about the facts, they care about demonizing and attacking law enforcement and I think it’s wrong,” he said.
Don Lemon of CNN said: “Even in our anguish, we cannot abandon the responsibility we have to be fair.
“We have to judge each incident based on what we see and the facts we know.
“They roll up on the scene. They see people tussling around. Someone has a knife… their job is to protect and serve every life on that scene.
