While speaking to the libertarian FreedomFest conference, George Foreman delivered a knockout punch to the Black Lives Matter movement. Foreman, who is a former two-time world heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist, was asked about what he would say to movement activists if he got a chance. He said:
“You know, the best thing that’s happened to me, and I think the best thing that’s happened to most everybody in the last 200 years, is the United States of America.”
Considering how much the movement detests America and everything it stands for, it is unlikely they agree with Foreman’s bold statement. He continued:
“Everyone is going to have an opportunity to search it out for themselves, and the conclusion is: if you love your country, you make it a better place.”

He pointed out that in America everyone must work hard to succeed in this country and bellyaching will take nobody very far.
“There is not one-year fix-it, and it’s going to be fixed forever. I fell in love with this country, and just think all things are possible.”
As Carrie Sheffield wrote for her news aggregator Bold:
“Foreman achieved mammoth successes that most of us can only dream of. But this spirit of perseverance, teamwork and optimism on all sides is what will help us achieve the progress in this country.”
BLM activists hate all three things – except maybe teamwork because many of them would rather chant in the streets like beats than combine forces for the greater good. Which is why is it unlikely that BLM runners will ever see the level of success Foreman has seen in his life.
