Liberal San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich got political (again) and called out Tennessee and Texas lawmakers over the latest shooting at a school. Popovich accused state legislators of showing “cowardice and selfishness,” by not taking any action on passing gun control laws. Of course, the local liberal San Antonio news media ran to cover his comments in support of gun control.
However, it is Popovich and all the liberals who show their own cowardice and selfishness for blaming an inanimate object like a gun, and not blaming the culture of violence that affects the youth. There is daily violence in schools and streets caused by children and teens who are not taught self-control or punished for unruly behavior.
Popovich and the liberals also show cowardice by not addressing the problem of mental illness. Instead of building hospitals, they create social programs that do nothing to secure and control the mentally ill.
Violence and crime, especially among minority youths, are excused and tolerated because of their age, race, income, and other socio-economic factors. Popovich and the liberals view “systems” as the causes of violence and crime instead of holding people personally responsible for their behavior. They want to socially engineer society, forcibly, if necessary, with public money.
The fact is that when you excuse and tolerate violence and crime for any reason like race, income, age, or mental incompetence, then you encourage more and worse violence and crime.
Popovich and the liberals are wrong and their failed policies in cities and schools prove it. They should stop blaming guns and blame their policies that excuse and encourage violent and criminal behavior. But Popovich and the liberals are afraid to do that.
