The violence in Charlottesville last weekend has reignited liberal outrage over symbols of the Confederacy, like historic monuments and statues throughout the United States. As the angry leftists continue to work their way from state to state, systematically destroying monuments and statues, an NBA legend has dropped a major bombshell on those who are “offended” by these long-standing pieces of American history. After hearing what he said, the crazy leftist thugs of Antifa are livid.
Charles Barkley, who was born in Alabama, shared his thoughts on the current outrage over Confederate statues in an interview with Rick Karle, the sports director at WRBC-TV in Birmingham.
NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley trashed alt-left antifa anarchists who are tearing down statues they suddenly find racist, saying they need to calm the hell down.
Barkley slammed the liberal lunacy of destroying confederate statues around the country because they’re “racist.”
Leftist anarchists had no problem with these same statues during the 8-year presidency of Barack Obama — the nation’s first black president.
The historical monuments only became “racist” after President Donald Trump took office. Why? Because today’s liberalism is a mental disorder marked by hypocrisy, a willful ignorance of facts, criminal behavior, and selective outrage. [Source: BizPacReview]
“I’m not going to waste my time worrying about these Confederate statues — that’s wasted energy,” said Barkley. “You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna keep doing great things, I’m gonna keep trying to make a difference — number one, in the black community because I’m black — but I’m also going to try to do good things in the world,” he continued.
“I’m not going to waste my time screaming at a neo-nazi who’s going to hate me no matter what,” added Barkley. “And I’m not going to waste my time worrying about these statues. I’ve always ignored them.”

According to IJR, when asked if the statues should simply be left alone, the NBA great wondered why he should care. “I’ve always ignored them,” he said. “I’m 54-years-old. I’ve never thought about those statues a day in my life. I think if you ask most black people to be honest, they haven’t thought a day in their life about those stupid statues,” he explained.
“We need to worry about getting our education, we need to stop killing each other, we need to try to find a way to have more economic opportunity and things like that,” Barkley concluded. “Those things are important and significant.”
Indeed, the black community has much bigger fish to fry. They accomplish nothing but to destroy our country’s history when they take to knocking down statues and vandalizing public property. At the end of the day, black-on-black violence rates are still sky high, an outrageous number of black babies are born to single-parent households, and young African-Americans are largely discouraged by their peers from obtaining a higher education. Any of these issues would be a better cause to take up than the destruction of Confederate monuments if you truly care about the well-being of black Americans or any Americans for that matter.
