    ‘Horribly Offensive’: Critics Slam Warriors’ Draymond Green for Visiting Israel, Firing Guns

    Tweets, pics & videos at link.


    Golden State Warriors All-Star Draymond Green is taking barbs from critics upset over photos depicting the player firing military-styled weapons during his visit to Israel.



    The three-time NBA champion met Likud Party member and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin who praised the player. “It’s not every day that I meet an All-Star,” Rivlin said according to The Mercury News.

    Green’s trip was organized by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). During his visit Green visited the nation’s counter-terrorism unit and played basketball with soldiers near the border.

    But the connection to the IDF incensed many Israel haters who attacked the player for participating with Israel’s armed forces.

    Dave Zirin, sports editor for the far left magazine The Nation, offered typical criticism.

    “Why reject Donald Trump and accept the invitation of Rivlin?” Zirin exclaimed. “It is, frankly, shocking to see Draymond Green smiling and shooting guns in their company. These counterterrorism border police units are part of a military that shot and killed Palestinians who were protesting at the border in May, less than two months ago.”

    GQ magazine’s Nathaniel Friedman piled on, accusing the IDF of “human rights abuses.”

    “Palestine is now a mainstream cause, especially for younger people and avowed leftists, who view it as a staple of anti-imperialism,” Friedman scolded. “Play-acting with the military that enforces the government’s draconian policies pushes things even further. That Green never made any explicit comments on what many view as a human rights crisis is almost beside the point. The images strongly suggest that he’s down with the IDF, or at least able to take the situation lightly. And, no matter what Green’s actual feelings are, the political utility of these images is undeniable.”

    “You got played,” Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King chided Green, according to the JTA. “Flashing a toothy grin w/ a sniper rifle in Israel on a trip (organized) by Friends of the IDF is so horribly offensive. They’ve recently slaughtered unarmed Palestinians w/ those rifles.”

    Of course, the criticism is based solely on the left’s assumption that Israel should be treated as a pariah state and no one should be allowed to visit the nation unless it is to condemn Jews.

    I worship at the altar of the GSW. DG can do no wrong as far as I am concerned.

    These "athletes" are fed such a line of shirt, which they willingly eat with exuberance. Too bad many lack any other true skills like being able to tie their own shoes.

    Professional athletics have created these fatherless monsters!

    NOT a hot fan of the Warriors and Draymond is one of the leading reasons for that (DUH!! ROFLOL) BUT, this is all SO bogus. I ESPECIALLY enjoy absolutely tone deaf race FAKER Shaun King being in the mix of bogus!

    I doubt he fired military styled weapons. I don't think they got some civilian arms and blinged them up to look mil. I'm guessing he fired military weapons, just like real soldiers use. May the pearl clutchers pop their necklaces.

    I would consider it an honor to visit the IDF. Their rescue of the hostages at Entebbe was masterful.

    Isn't he one of the guys who refused to meet Trump?
    The word RACIST, and the ability to debate race-related issues rationally, are the kryptonite of white common sense.

    Yes, I think that was Bibi's brother. May he rest in peace.

    IIRC, this Shaun King is as “black” as Rachel Dolezal. Why the hell does he keep opening his flap and telling REAL blacks what to do?

    Sure. Just like some people don't mix politics and football.

    I want to know why the REAL blacks keep listening to the white boy.
