Anti-gun “reporters” swarmed this Red Sox slugger for his pro-gun statement

The national sports media will go to no end to shame professional athletes who disagree with them politically.

Their goal is to silence athletes who hold “non-PC” views while they laud Trump-haters like LeBron James and Black Lives Matter-supporting national anthem protesters.

But their plan backfired when they went after Boston Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez.

Martinez is one of the Red Sox best players and is vying for a Triple Crown (leading the league in batting average, RBI, and home runs) – a feat that has only happened one time in the past four decades.

But instead of asking him about his season, the media dug up a six year old social media post.

Martinez shared a post with a picture of Adolf Hitler with the quote, “To conquer a nation, First disarm its citizens.”

The baseball star captioned it, “This is why I will always stay strapped! #thetruth”

When the media got their hands on it they thought they would have a field day.

But Martinez refused to cave in and he shut them down brilliantly:

“I love my country. I love this country and I stand by the Constitution and I stand by the Second Amendment. It’s something that I take pride in. It’s something that I’ll back up.

“I don’t want this distraction. You guys are talking about something that happened six years ago. I posted it and that’s why I’m out here talking about it, but I’m worried about a championship. I’m worried about winning a championship. Everyone here has a right to their own political beliefs, and everybody has the right to stand by what they believe in. That’s what makes us American. We’re all not going to agree on the same things, but that’s what makes this country so great.”

Martinez is Cuban-American.

He stated, “most of my family was run out of Cuba by a brutal dictator.”

His story illustrates just how important our Second Amendment rights are.

The media thought they could push their anti-gun narrative after the recent shooting in Jacksonville.

But the American people aren’t buying it.

    He is Red White and Blue, you are a good example of a good Athlete, Thank you!

  14. Jerry Rockwell says:

    The founders of our constitution knew that if you can disarm the public, then you can control the population. Hitler first disarmed the populace, and then he totally controlled them. The Jewish people were very restricted on being able to fight back, because they were totally disarmed. Any government can overthrow the population as long as they have the guns. HEY LIBERALS, TURN ALL OF YOUR GUNS IN. Who is stopping you. I for one will always own a gun. When an armed person attacks you or your family do not ask me to defend you! And “No” you may not borrow any weapons from me. You have the choice to live by your decision. You also have the choice to DIE by your decision.

    Thank you sir

  27. Carl Pyzowski says:

    These so called journalists are wetting thier pants to find something, anything wrong with Trump and they just can’t stand realizing that everything that they do backfires on them and the radical, liberal, Hollywood left and the elite Republicans. Give them enough rope and they, along with crooked Meuller will eventually hang themselves.

  28. 20 years ago Bill Clinton said “I didn’t have sex with that girl” So why don’t you USA Constitution hating sleezeball useless reporters stick your microphones and cameras in his pathetic face and ask him about that and leave honest hard working Americans alone. While you are at it why don’t you ask HiLIARy why she didn’t leave him when she found out?

  29. Rodger Shull says:

    these so called sports commentators, are F$*KING POS. people, LOW LIFE SCUM. they did not ask him about his quest for the TRIPLE CROWN, did they HELL NO, they went after something 6 yrs old, and he was absolutley correct in what he said, castro an hitler were one an the same just different yrs apart. but out of the same dna evil strain.

  30. octavio montoto says:

    I’m with you J.D. don’t let these scumbag fake news push you around

  31. Timothy k Toroian says:

    If the media does not understand what he said six years ago they shouldn’t be in the business. They are acting like commentators without any historical research in the subject, which, impolitely makes them a bit illiterate and therefore DSs. The first word starts with “Di”. The second word ends in a”t’.

  32. TDG says:

    Cub fan here, but JD has made me a fan of his.

  33. M says:

    I am not a baseball fan but, J. D. Martinez is a true American patriot who holds true to his heart and The Constitution. Sports figures, celebrities, and citizens everywhere, show courage and stand for your convictions. Do not cave to bullies who try to intimidate you. You are protecting The Constitution and your right to free speech and the right to bear arms. Speak up or risk a give up-of rights and freedom as intended by our forefathers! God bless America and all true patriots.
