Steve Kerr, the head coach for the Golden State Warriors, just infuriated many on social media with the most appeasiest answer he could give when asked
about Chinaâ€™s human rights abuses. Specifically, he morally equivocated by trashing America:
Steve Kerr on if he's ever been asked about human rights
during his previous trips to China:
"No. Nor has (America's) record of human rights abuses come
up either... People in China didn't ask me about, you know,
people owning AR-15s and mowing each other down in a mall."
What a jerk. Seriously. And a moron to boot.
First of all, human rights abuses are typically done by the government, not some wacko who decides to shoot a bunch of people in a mall.
Secondly â€“ well Iâ€™ll let Jonah Goldberg spell it out for ya:

Let's see. Because he's playing moral equivalence between
the US today and China today. China is committing cultural
genocide with the Uighurs in front of the whole world. It's
crushing Hong Kong's fight for democracy. And he's making it
sound like Coke versus Pepsi.
Hereâ€™s more from Twitterâ€¦
Better to say nothing at all than to engage in lazy apologetics
for Chinese regime repression. I understand that the league
only pretends to care about principles when it doesn't hurt
their bottom line, but I though Kerr was made of more serious
stuff. I guess not.
.@SteveKerr is a garbage person.

Straight outta MMFA.
In fairness to Kerr, it takes a long time for blood to make
it to your brain when you're tall.
Steve Kerr comparing the right to gun ownership in America
to China locking up millions of religious minorities in camps
and censoring any criticism of their regime.
Maybe "shut up and coach" might not be the worst advice for
Watching Democrats come up with schemes to "catch Trump" is like
watching Wile E. Coyote trying to catch Road Runner.
