Last week Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was blasted on social media by Black Lives Matters activists for tweets from when he was in high school.
A teenaged Mahomes tweeted in support of police back in 2011.
Per TMN, the 24-year-old devout Christian quarterback led his team to the Super Bowl this year. The Chiefs will face off against the 49ers on Sunday, February 2nd. And so this is rightfully the young Kansas City Chiefs superstar QB’s time to shine.
But his haters aren’t having. They scoured through Mahomes’ old tweets to find anything he might have said that could be used to tarnish his squeaky clean image. They want a target on the outspoken Christian quarterback, not a spotlight.
While a football standout at Whitehouse High School in Texas, a young Patrick Mahomes tweeted that people should stop resisting arrest and assaulting cops.
Adding to Leftist furor, the quarterback also tweeted that while Trayvon Martin’s death was a tragedy, there wasn’t any crime committed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
The jury ultimately agreed with Mahomes and acquitted Zimmerman. So Patrick Mahomes’ tweet was correct.

These simple and rational tweets from Mahomes’ high school days were enough to make people turn on him. Some Black Lives Matter activists now believe the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, who is the reigning MVP and bi-racial, is unworthy of their support.
patrick mahomes supports george zimmerman in case you were deciding who to root for in the super bowl.

The 49ers Bosa called Kaepernick a clown for protesting police terrorism. The Chiefs Mahomes defended George Zimmerman, and tweeted “Stop resisting or assaulting cops.”

Per Heavy, in his first year as the Chiefs starting quarterback, Patrick Mahomes has accomplished a lot, but it is his Christian faith that makes his family proud. Mahomes mother, Randi Martin, spoke with IN Magazine about Mahomes’ faith back in 2016 when Mahomes was playing at Texas Tech.
“In middle school, he got real involved with his youth group,” Randi told IN Magazine. “He got saved. There was a night at church, he had his hands raised to the Lord and he was singing. I just felt overcome with this most awesome moment, more than any football game, because I knew where his heart truly is.
At times, Mahomes uses social media to express his faith.
“God is good! #blessed,” Mahomes tweeted on July 11, 2018.
After former Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith sustained a season-ending injury, Mahomes took to Twitter to offer encouragement.
“Prayers for my guy man! You will bounce back!” Mahomes noted on Twitter.
God is good! #blessed

Meanwhile, Mahomes’ teammate Kansas City defense end Frank Clark attended a press conference last Friday wearing a sweatshirt that has an image of President Trump with Kanye West.
Clark said the sweatshirt was given to him by a friend and called Trump meeting West a “very historical” moment.
After answering questions about his fashion, Clark talked with reporters about he feels his team matches up with the 49ers and how he tries to stay “at a simmer” to be ready for the Super Bowl without peaking early.
Twitter users were quick to point out the daring fashion choice of Clark.
Frank Clark was asked to explain his sweatshirt depicting the day Donald Trump and Kanye West first met: “Never forget. We’ll never forget that important moment in our history.” …and yes, Frank let out a very healthy laugh with his response. pic.twitter.com/kmlOmFE0yl
