MLB Star Stands Ground After Pro-gun Post

Progressives are gunning for Boston Red Sox star J.D. Martinez for a five-year-old pro-2A post he made on Instagram. He was forced to apologize to the leftist mob, but not before underscoring the point about why he supports the Second Amendment: “As most of you guys know I’m Cuban-American, and most of my family was run out of Cuba because of a brutal dictator.” What was the ‘offensive’ post? A meme of Adolf Hitler with the quote, “To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens” including the caption: “This is why I always stay strapped! #TheTruth.”

As it was reported earlier this week, progressives pounced on Boston Red Sox star J.D. Martinez for a five-year-old pro-Second Amendment Instagram post. And although Martinez was forced by the leftist mob into apologizing for committing the grave sin of possibly “offending” someone, the slugger stood firm in his pro-Second Amendment stance, explaining to liberal reporters that his family has had first-hand experience with the brutal dictatorial regime of Fidel Castro in Cuba.

“As most of you guys know I’m Cuban-American, and most of my family was run out of Cuba because of a brutal dictator,” Martinez told a swarm of reporters on Tuesday. “It’s terrible. It’s one of those things where I’ll never get to meet some of my family because of it.”

“I love my country. I stand by the Constitution and I stand by the Second Amendment,” he continued. “It’s something I take pride in and it’s something I’ll back up.”
