Leftists Target Patrick Mahomes Over 2011 Tweets Supporting Police And George Zimmerman
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is being blasted by social media activists for tweets from 2011 supporting the police and George Zimmerman.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is being blasted on social media by Black Lives Matters activists for tweets from when he was in high school. A teenaged Mahomes tweeted in support of police back in 2011.
The 24-year-old devout Christian quarterback led his team to the Super Bowl this year. The Chiefs will face off against the 49ers on Sunday, February 2nd. And so this is rightfully the young Kansas City Chiefs superstar QB’s time to shine.
But his haters aren’t having. They scoured through Mahomes’ old tweets to find anything he might have said that could be used to tarnish his squeaky clean image. They want a target on the outspoken Christian quarterback, not a spotlight.
Patrick Mahomes 2011Tweets
While a football standout at Whitehouse High School in Texas, a young Patrick Mahomes tweeted that people should stop resisting arrest and assaulting cops.
Adding to Leftist furor, the quarterback also tweeted that while Trayvon Martin’s death was a tragedy, there wasn’t any crime committed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
The jury ultimately agreed with Mahomes and acquitted Zimmerman. So Patrick Mahomes’ tweet was correct.

These simple and rational tweets from Mahomes’ high school days were enough to make people turn on him. Some Black Lives Matter activists now believe the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, who is the reigning MVP and bi-racial, is unworthy of their support.
patrick mahomes supports george zimmerman in case you were deciding who to root for in the super bowl.

Anonymity can make these keyboard warriors brave. They will attack someone for irrational reasons from the safety of their mom’s basement.
I have 0 respect for Patrick Mahomes , he defended George Zimmerman during the Trayvon Martin Case . Fuck him ! 💯 if you don’t believe look at his past tweets .

This is causing quite a conundrum for far left football fans. They might view both starting quarterbacks as unworthy. San Francisco 49ers’ Nick Bosa tweeted how Colin Kaepernick, who protested during the National Anthem, was a “clown.”
The 49ers Bosa called Kaepernick a clown for protesting police terrorism. The Chiefs Mahomes defended George Zimmerman, and tweeted “Stop resisting or assaulting cops.”

49ers QB Nick Bosa And President Donald Trump
After defensive end Nick Bosa was drafted by the 49ers in the first round, President Trump tweeted his congratulations. As you can imagine, this simple congratulatory tweet made liberal heads explode.
After all, San Francisco is a far left city and our Republican president’s support of their new rookie was not widely appreciated.
Congratulations to Nick Bosa on being picked number two in the NFL Draft. You will be a great player for years to come, maybe one of the best. Big Talent! San Francisco will embrace you but most importantly, always stay true to yourself. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

The Mahomes and Bosa tweets are sidelining some liberal activists on Super Bowl Sunday.
Mahomes is a Zimmerman apologist and Bosa is a white Supremacist Trump supporter.
We can’t root for nobody this year. We gotta hope it just ends in a tie. https://t.co/JjqLNMLJXQ

However, it’s hard to judge someone by a handful of tweets. But then we live in a world of soundbites and “gotcha” news.
Bosa has since deleted some “controversial” tweets that drew backlash just before the NFL draft. Mahomes’ high school tweets, however, were very benign. And when you look a little closer at his other tweets at the time, you can determine that he was basically asking questions about the Zimmerman case.
In the end, this is all a lot of nothing that was made into a big something all because of bomb throwers on Twitter.
About this whole thing of Mahomes supporting “Zimmerman shooting Trayvon Martin” – Make sure you read everything. I can’t take Conservative or Liberal media seriously anymore, find the facts out for yourself, 9 times out of 10 it’s right there unmasked. https://t.co/6VeW6eAi0T
