The Golden State Warriors coach delivered an emotional speech in reaction to the massacre in an elementary school in Texas, where he attacks certain American governors.
It was a very upset Steve Kerr who appeared at a press conference on Tuesday evening, just before Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals between Dallas and Golden State. The Warriors coach, who rarely hides his political views, had a very important message to convey. And that did not concern his team.
“I’m not going to talk about basketball. All questions about basketball don’t matter, since 14 children were killed 600 kilometers from here, as well as a teacher“, pointed out Steve Kerrin reference to the killing in a primary school in Texas, in Uvalde, and whose toll is now established at 21 dead.
Kerr compared this tragedy with two other recent killings, at a supermarket in Buffalo, and in a church in South Carolina. “When are we going to do something?, the three-time NBA champion coach got carried away, extremely moved. I’m tired. I’m tired of coming here and offering my condolences to the devastated families. I am so tired. Excuse me. I’m sorry. I am tired of these moments of silence. Enough. »

While this new drama will revive the eternal debate on gun control in the United States, Steve Kerr recalled that a law was still pending since 2019 to impose a check on the criminal and psychiatric backgrounds of people wishing to get a weapon. But according to him, “50 senators” oppose the passage of this law. ” There’s a reason why they don’t want to vote for it: to keep power, denounced the Warriors coach, before directly questioning a Republican senator, opponent of Joe Biden. I ask you, Mitch McConnell, all of you senators who refuse to do anything about the violence, the school shootings, the supermarket shootings, I ask you: will you pass your own desire of power before the lives of our children, our elderly and the faithful of our churches? Because that’s what it looks like. This is what we see every week. »
According to Steve Kerr, these 50 senators are taking the American population hostage, while 90% of Americans, all parties combined, would be in favor of this law, according to the Golden State coach. ” It is pathetic. I have enough. »
