As an example of just how much the left hates Donald J. Trump, after becoming enraged because football great Jim Brown expressed kind words for Trump, a writer for decided that Brown’s decades of work for civil rights was erased merely because the Hall of Famer was nice to Trump.

SportingNews writer David Steele began his January 18 piece noting that the Cleveland Browns star has been a candidate for the “Mount Rushmore of social, political and civil-rights activism.”

“If Jim Brown is not on the Mount Rushmore of social, political and civil-rights activism by athletes in our time (up there with, at least, Muhammad Ali, Tommie Smith and John Carlos), he’s on the short list waiting for a vacancy,” Steele wrote.

But that adulation came to an abrupt end. “He was, that is,” Steele continued. “Jim Brown himself is now the vacancy.”

How could a man who spent nearly 50 years at the forefront of the civil rights movement be toppled from that place with just one action?
