Draymond Green Went Off On Protestors Storming US Capitol: "They're Not F**king Protestors. They're F**king Terrorists."

Draymond Green Went Off On Protestors Storming US Capitol: "They're Not F**king Protestors. They're F**king Terrorists."

Draymond Green has signed his name on the list of NBA players that went after Donald Trump and rioters that broke into the US capitol on Wednesday. Those events have earned a lot of criticism from the general public and it doesn't seem like that's changing shortly. Contrary to helping their case, they are damaging their image.

Green was very outspoken about the things happening in Washington D.C. yesterday, where the local authorities set a curfew. This was a very bad situation and Green was really mad at it, even calling protestors "terrorists."

Via Mark Medina of USA Today Sports:

"It’s shameful to keep calling them protestors," Green said. "They’re not (expletive) protestors. They’re (expletive) terrorists."

Green also drew a contrast between how the rioters at the Capitol were treated by law enforcement and how Black people protesting systemic racism over the summer were.

"It’s baffling with the reaction that the law enforcement had and whoever else was involved from an authoritarian standpoint to see the National Guard standing on those same steps when there was a peaceful protest and now to see a terrorist attack and there was no National Guard," Green said. "It just goes to show you where this country is and where this country has always been and probably where it’s going to stay, to be quite honest. Nothing’s changed. I think through social media and all of these different things we have at our fingertips today, we’re more aware of things. But nothing has changed. This is the same America that it’s been. It’s no different."

This is not good for anybody. It was supposed to be a normal day in the capital of the country but some people decided to ruin everything and make the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Steve Kerr also talked about this and he used the same expression as Draymond, calling these people "terrorists" for their unfortunate actions.
