Ted Cruz Sets Gregg Popovich Straight, Slams ‘Incredibly Rich’ Woke Athletes Who ‘Hypocritically Lecture’ Fans

Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has set Gregg Popovich straight after the San Antonio Spurs coach criticized his plan to combat gun violence by placing more police officers at schools.

Popovich said:

“When we were in school, we worried if Nancy would dance with us on Friday after the football game or something.

“That was, that was our anxiety.

“But they’re gonna cloak all this stuff.

“You know, the myth of the Second Amendment, the freedom, you know, it’s just, it’s a myth.

“It’s a joke. It’s just a game they play.

“I mean, that’s freedom. Is it?

“Freedom for kids to go to school and try to socialize and try to learn and be scared to death, that they might die that day, but Ted Cruz will fix it cause he is gonna double the number of cops into schools.

“That’s what he wants to do. Well, that’ll create a great environment.

“Is that freedom or is it freedom to have a congressman who can make a postcard with all his family holding rifles, including AR-15 or whatever. Is that cool?”

Enter Ted Cruz, who fired back at Popovich, saying:

“We’ve seen for a long time that there are a lot of institutions in sports that don’t really like their fans very much, don’t really like their customers — don’t respect their customers — that look down on them.

“Popovich is someone who has been a partisan for a long time. He’s a liberal Democrat.

“You see this in the NBA, you see it in the NFL, these incredibly rich athletes who hypocritically disdain their fans and customers and who lecture them almost inevitably from a point of ignorance.

“That’s a fairly astonishing proposition. And I would note you’ve been to NBA games. I’ve been to NBA games.

“You know what there are a lot of at NBA games? Police officers.

“Popovich is surrounded by armed security most of the time.

“And this is true with so many Hollywood liberals that have armed bodyguards protecting them.

“And they say: ‘You little people, you don’t have a right to defend your family. You don’t have a right to defend your children but me. I’m gonna be surrounded in perfect safety and take away your rights to defend yourself.’

“I thought it was really striking what he went after me at in this little rant, he went after me for proposing that we double the number of police officers in schools.

“And he says, ‘Do you want that?’

“Let me be clear: Yes, I want that.

“I don’t get this recent conceit of leftists that police officers don’t make us more safe, but like it is a bizarre view.

“Leftists, like Popovich put none of the blame on George Soros DAs that are releasing murderers.

“They put none of the blame on the leftists that they support, who are calling for abolishing the police,” Cruz said.

“Instead, they put the blame on you for exercising your right to keep and bear arms to protect your family and your children.”
