Liberal Fascism: Kevin McHale, wife’s twitter attacked after attending a Trump rally, should ‘never work in the NBA again’

A random photo at a President Trump rally Wednesday in Duluth, Minnesota has stirred up incredible ire from leftists, now attacking former NBA great Kevin McHale.

From the rally came pictures of the estimated 9,000 in attendance: “Thousands came to cheer President Trump in Duluth. pic.twitter.com/SEzYnpnr5p

Then came this:

Sports radio host Henry Lake wrote, “If Kevin McHale actually showed up to Trump’s rally in Duluth today with everything that is happening now and what Trump’s done and stands for, yeah he’s cancelled.”

The general manager and later coach of the Minnestoa Timberwolves is currently an on-air analyst for NBA TV.

It didn’t take long for the things to turn vile as Clay Travis of Outkick the Coverage noted, “The left wingers then tracked down Kevin McHale’s wife’s Twitter, decided some of her political opinions were unacceptable, and so deluged her with hate that she shut down her account.”

One hint of this:

Travis pointed out, a prominent writer on the NBA blogosphere scene tweeted this:

The media then asked players, James Harden:

“He’s a clown, honestly,” Harden said after the Rockets’ open practice last Saturday, in response to McHale’s initial comments. “I did anything and everything he asked me to do. I’ve tried to lead this team every day since I stepped foot here in Houston. To go on air and just downplay my name, when honestly he’s never taught me anything to be a leader …

“But I’ve done a great job. The organization, my coaches, you can ask any of those guys how I’ve worked extremely hard every single day to better [myself], obviously as a basketball player, but be a leader as well. To go on air and downplay my name like that, it just shows his character. I usually don’t go back and forth on social media with anybody or with interviews, but I’m going to stand up for myself, and there it is. But you just don’t go and do that. It shows what type of person he is.”

Check out the clip below. McHale fought back:

“Calling me names is not going to change my opinion as to what I saw when I was there,” McHale said Friday on TNT. “It’s hard to have a lot of credibility if you don’t play good defense.”

McHale remained complimentary of Harden’s basketball skills while explaining what he considers to be leadership.

“He’s a hell of a basketball player, he really is,” McHale said. “And to James’ credit, I will say this: He organizes guys in the summer. He does a lot of stuff. He does a lot of those things. When I was talking more about leadership is … it’s a tie game at half. It’s a playoff game, or you’re playing another team that’s tough and rumble, and they’re going to get after you. And all of a sudden, with four minutes to go in the third, you’re down nine. They’re getting every loose ball, they’re getting every rebound, they’re doing this stuff. It’s not about skill at that point. It’s about will. I gotta impose my will on you.

“James at that point gets a little bit — that’s not his personality. Chris Paul, in turn, will get in your face, go nose-to-nose with you, say, ‘Hey, let’s go,’ and I think that’s what you need. Draymond Green does a great job, whenever you need a spark. He’s out there going jawing with somebody.”

 

Travis wrote, “It’s important to note that LeBron James attended a Hillary Clinton campaign event on the stage and not one person with any kind of audience in the country had any issue with that or even remotely suggested it should impact his job status. Because LeBron’s a citizen, just like you and me, and he has a right to his political opinions, just like you and me, even if we disagree.” Travis also cited this ESPN employee tweeting this:

MASON GINSBERG (ESPN True Hoop Network Writer): BREAKING: Kevin McHale accepts head coaching gig in WNBA, only to quickly renege once he realized that it did not stand for “White Nationalist Basketball Association.”

Travis said he retweeted the Ginsberg opinion, but said it was then deleted.

“Kevin McHale just became the other side of Colin Kaepernick. Hard to see him ever coaching again in the NBA,” one writer added while another said, “Happy draft day to everyone but Kevin McHale”

McHale, a Minnesota native, made seven NBA All-Star Games and was part of three championship teams during the Boston Celtics dynasty in the 1980s. After his Hall of Fame playing career, he held coaching jobs with the Houston Rockets and his hometown Timberwolves.
