While speaking at the libertarian FreedomFest conference, former two-time world heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist George Foreman delivered an epic knockout punch to the phony Black Lives Matter movement.
“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,” he said when asked at the event about what he would say to movement activists if offered the chance.
Considering how much the average racial grievance monger detests America and everything it represents, it stands to reason that Foreman’s bold statement felt like a pierce to the heart.
“Everyone is going to have 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 continued, adding that making America a better place for both oneself and others requires that one “go out in the farm and cut hay and pack it away.”
In other words, one must work hard to succeed in this country, for petulant bellyaching will take neither men nor women very far in the freest nation on Earth.
“There’s no one-year fix-it, and it’s going to be fixed forever,” he concluded. “I fell in love with this country, and just think all things are possible.”

As Carrie Sheffield, a former editorial reporter for The Washington Times and reporter for Politico, 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.”
