‘What tears? Man, knock it off’: LeBron James takes joy in Rittenhouse’s pain, mocks breakdown

Multimillionaire NBA star LeBron James has joined the large pack of blue checkmark elites who’ve taken to mocking Kyle Rittenhouse, the young white man who was chased and nearly killed by Black Lives Matter extremists during the riots last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

While testifying in court on Wednesday about the events leading up to the moment that he’d opened fire on the BLM extremists, the now 18-year-old broke down in anguish so visceral his whole body was racked by his sobbing.

Some later speculated that he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. He was only 17 when he traveled to Kenosha in 2020 in the hopes of both providing medical aid and protecting local businesses. He was likewise only 17 when the violent extremists who were decimating the city zeroed in on him next, reportedly telling him that they intended to kill him if they caught him alone.

But not everybody empathized with the young man’s agony. The vast majority of demonstrably left-wing blue checkmark elites instead pounced on him, impugning his tears as “fake” and doubling down on the debunked narrative that Rittenhouse is a white supremacist murderer.

Among those who joined in the mocking and persecution of Rittenhouse was James, an NBA star known for his liberal politics.


“What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court,” he tweeted late Wednesday, finding joy in Rittenhouse’s pain.

James, whose record includes defending the Communist Chinese Party’s brutal treatment of dissidents, has a history of allying himself with unscrupulous characters and movements.

When last spring Ohio police officers justifiably opened fire on and killed a teen girl who’d been about to stab another teen girl to death, James instinctively sided with the knife-wielding maniac.

In a tweet posted a day after the justified shooting, he outright threatened the police officer who’d fired the shot, writing, “YOU’RE NEXT.” The tweet included a photo of the officer.

He was also an avid supporter of the BLM riots that racked the nation in 2020, on the grounds that it was necessary to take a stand because black criminal suspects were being “literally hunted EVERYDAY.”

Yet in the face of Rittenhouse being “literally hunted” by extremists — extremists who, to be more specific, were torching businesses and cars in Kenosha, and who were therefore resentful of the teen for being a good Samaritan — James has suddenly changed his story.

Why? Most of his critics suspect it’s because Rittenhouse is a white conservative male — and as a member of the “woke” elite, James isn’t fond of such people.

James is not alone in his “ignorance.”

The vast majority of blue check mark elites have expressed the same sentiment, with many also drawing a link between the tears of anguish shed by Rittenhouse and those shed three years ago by smeared Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

To them, Rittenhouse is a rotten egg — a white conservative one, to boot — and nothing, not even the truth, can convince them otherwise.

Meanwhile, the three men he shot, two of them fatally, as they’d reportedly chased and tried to kill him — they’re perfect eggs brimming with nobility and righteousness.

And the fact that one of them was a repeat child molester whose victims were reportedly aged between nine and 11? Well, at least he wasn’t a white conservative!
