(DCWatchdog.com) – In the wake of the horrific massacre at Robb Elementary School in Texas, Steve Kerr, the Golden State Warriors basketball coach, used his pregame press conference on Tuesday night to criticize Republican Senators he blames for failing to pass gun control laws that he believes are necessary.
Kerr, who has a history of ranting and attacking conservatives, has been a leftist celebrity for the past several years. His favorite target is Donald Trump, who he slammed dozens of times while Trump was president.
Kerr, however, also has a history of protesting for and demanding the removal of armed police officers from public schools, especially those with high proportions of Blacks.
As was reported almost two years ago by nbcbayarea.com in a June 2020 article headlined “Warriors’ Kerr Backs Effort to Remove Police From Oakland Schools“:
“Kerr on Tuesday joined students and parents in Oakland who are calling for the school district to eliminate its police force…
“This is a real reckoning for much of America, especially white America,” said Kerr as he spoke to the crowd.
“He joined dozens of Oakland Unified School district parents and students who are calling for the district to dismantle its internal police force...
“The district – which is facing a multi-million dollar budget shortfall – currently employs 10 officers. On Wednesday, the district will take up a measure to dissolve the department and replace the force with non-uniformed “peacekeeping ambassadors.”
“You really have to listen to the community in terms of what’s happening and what’s best for the community,” said Kerr.” [emphasis added]
Kerr has not yet said if he is reconsidering his demands for removing school police officers in light of the killing of 19 schoolchildren and two teachers.
