Former Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith is one of the greatest offensive players in the NFL, but the large contribution he reportedly made to the controversial Democratic candidate for Texas governor is one of the most “offensive” moves he’s made in a long time:

Others were very happy with the news:

It’s really unfortunate to see such a great player join the team of infanticide.

    Because that’s what’s important, “Joe.” It doesn’t matter what a candidate believes in or the policies they will implement, for good or bad, just so long as a party member is elected.

    Have fun paying for me because of the candidates YOU vote for. Oh yeah, Margaret Sanger and Nathan Bedford Forrest thank you too.

    • 2ifbyT

      Watch what happens next. I lived in Texas for eight years, and former Cowboys are like gods there. Smith just pushed all those independents in Texas who like the Cowboys (farther) to the right.

      • Scott

        I am going to BURN his jersey!!! [email protected] him!

    • 4liberty

      That’s what Texas needs-lets turn Texas blue again so we can turn it into another NY or California or Illinois etc. etc. etc.

      • Love of Country

        They want to take over so the next election they can brag about how prosperous Texas is and have people believe they did it ….. unbelievable!

    • Love of Country

      This is the same jackanapes who had the career of a lifetime in Dallas and upon signing with Arizona stated that he was a diamond surrounded by trash in Dallas. Seems he got three rings and the all-time rushing title all by himself …. unbelievable!
      ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
      Shifting gears, the very first time he played against Dallas I bet this guy 100 dollars that Emmitt would get less than 50 yds on the day and that in all likelihood he would be taken out of the game by Roy Williams. Amazingly, I was right on all three counts, though I only had money on the yardage, lol.

  • Scott Sage

    Does he even LIVE in Texas anymore?

  • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

    Dollars to doughnuts he thought he was giving the money to Wendy Williams. I mean, how many shots to the head can you take before things start getting a little confused?

    • Clayton Grant

      There must be something to these recent reports of repetitive concussions in football.

  • Clayton Grant

    $10K is the combined total an individual can contribute to state and local candidates in Texas. Looks like Smith is all-in on Davis.

  • Brian Roastbeef

    Ugh. I used to respect him, even though I hated the Cowboys in his day. He was quiet and steady.

    Now, yeah as someone said above, dead to me. Officially a bigger douchecanoe than Terrell Owens.

  • BorderLine Guy

    Huh? I swear I heard him speak on business and he definitely had a conservative streak.

    • Garym

      He’s just another low info voter who votes for dems.

  • chaga

    He is stuck on Blonde, and just as dumb. IMO

    • thedumbblonde

      I’m disappoint.

  • http://www.jabootu.com/acolytes/bnotes/ Apostic

    Meh. This is what happens when you assume your heroes think like you do. In that regard, heroes will usually disappoint. On the plus side, he’s not accued of molesting a seven year old step daughter, so I guess he’s got that going for him….

  • Garym

    Supporting someone who would kill a baby that could live outside the womb. My favorite Cowboy player ever is now dead to me. Too bad some linebacker didn’t abort his career with a shot to the knee.

  • Roadster73

    Wow! She finally raised $$ in TEXAS! Blind squirrel, nut, anyone? This reminds me of the regime making a big deal about ONE person who actually signed up for obamacare while ignoring all those who lost insurance and can’t get it anymore.

    On the other hand, from what I’ve heard, Aikman is a red blooded conservative, and I doubt Greg Abbott feels the need to advertise if the guy donated to his campaign. If he does, it’d be nice if the Abbott campaign lets us Cowboys fans know.

  • Txgirlinnh

    With all the talk of brain injuries in the nfl…this is obviously exhibit A.

  • PeterP

    “Why does Emmitt hate handicapped people?” ~ Chris Matthews

  • twistedgenius

    He only donated cause he wants someone in office that will help support abortion, so he won’t be on Maury and hearing the “You are the father”.. come on people catch up to their logical way of thinking… /sarc

  • QueenB

    10 grand to a baby killing advocate and liar. Money well spent. Idiot.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    “Emmitt Smith– that’s who you’re worried about? Emmitt Smith makes millions of dollars on business deals. But if your campaign needs ten grand, go ask him, see what he tells you– Well, I’ll be damned! He said YES?”

  • Guest

    liked him here, thought these guys were great …..

  • fishydude

    Wendy Davis supports the continued black genocide. What else can one call something that kills 50% of all black children?
    And more than half of all abortions are girls. So where is the real war on women?
    These people won’t change their view unless a gay gene is found and used to kill them.

  • Zathras11 @B5

    Probably my favorite player of all time. I never heard a bad word said about the man. Quite the opposite. I’d heard some stories about how well he treated fans and those in need. I agree with this:

    “g g @Lmg1234567 Follow
    @chieti61 He’s so proud of his race, so it surprises me that he doesn’t know Planned Parenthood’s reason for being. Sad. @EmmittSmith22
    6:11 PM – 4 Feb 2014”

    I can only surmise that he (realizing that he was lucky) doesn’t want anyone else to have to go through life Black, because Davis and her ilk will make sure that doesn’t happen to as many potential people as possible.

    • lonestar

      Hannity interviewed him a couple of years ago and went down a list with Emmitt. Every question he came out on the republican side. Hannity asked him why he was a democrat since his beliefs and values aligned with the republicans, and he didn’t have an answer.

  • forgetyoutooo

    Ahmad Rashad is living in the White House with Obama’s boss/blackMama Valerie Jarrett. Smith donates millions to the loser liar Abortion Barbie. And the left goes crazy over Joe Namath’s coat. Priorities of the left….

    I didn’t know Emmitt Smith was into the whole genocide thing..huh.

    I wish Dems would give Barbie BEEELIONS!

  • Electradivine

    shame on ES for doing what he wants to do with his money HE EARNED, after all conservatives hate that … Oh wait !!!

    • grais

      Hey, if he wants to further black genocide it’s his business.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      That’s the deal. He can do what he wants to with his own money. We aren’t going to try to get the government to take his money or force him to do something with it he doesn’t want to.

      But we DO get to publicly shame him. I’m sure you’ll need to look up what “shame” really means.

    • UpNorth2

      If he’s got that much money, shouldn’t the government “redistribute” some of it for everyone else?
      As for his donation, it brings to mind an old saying, “a fool and his money are soon parted”.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmSIOoy6MlE&app=desktop Booker

    Margaret Sanger would be proud.

  • Brother bob

    even after the fact , Davis lied about her socalled struggling past… so i guess they were right about football. it does destroys the brain.

  • bringbackericthered

    In fairness, he only did it because he doesn’t know what to do without Larry Allen and Daryl Johnston leading the way and got confused

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    I never had ONE IOTA of Respect for Emmy Smith, or the Dal-Ass Cowgirls (GIANTS fan!), but now I have even LESS RESPECT FOR HIM! Jawamax 8<{D}

  • CobraJet428

    ESPN took Smith off the network because he couldn’t talk. Now we know he can’t think, either.

  • World B. Free

    Well, that ought to cover just about a month’s rent on one of her apartments:

    Most pro athletes are pro-aborts, because it saves them from having to make 216 child support payments to all their fan girls.

  • Marvin Nelson

    Smith is a poster child for NFL concussions-too many shots to the head scrambled his brains. Can’t think of any other reason why he would make such a bonehead donation. Used to love ya, Emmitt, but we are over.

  • Cory

    So people hate a guy for donating to a political opponent? lol. You guys are sad. There’s many people who don’t donate to Libertarian candidates and I don’t hate those people. So much unnecessary outrage. What happened to the tolerance on the right?

    • UpNorth2

      Isn’t that cute, your mom and dad followed you to Twitchy and upvoted one of your posts.

      • Cory

        Lol, I’m pretty sure my mom and dad don’t know what twitchy is. They barely know how to use the internet effectively. It would be amazing if they could.

        • UpNorth2

          So, you upvoted yourself? That’s even lamer.

          • Cory

            I didn’t know you could up vote yourself three times. Interesting. Maybe it’s because some people on here don’t subscribe to the faux outrage machine that you obviously do.

          • UpNorth2

            You’ve been around for over 2K posts and you “didn’t know you could up vote yourself”? I believe you, sure I do… Uh huh, yup.

          • Cory

            Well I appreciate the trust. Thanks man.

  • Al’s Annoyed Grandpa

    More evidence that the Cowboys are one of the Professional Sports Axis of Evil, the other two being the Lakers and Yankees.

  • Steve__Jacobson

    His money he can spend it however he wants. Personally I think it’s the same as flushing money down the toilet but if that’s his desire more power to him.

  • Scott

    Just like at a strip bar, an idiot and his money soon will part!!!

  • http://www.saundersreport.com Rachel

    Mannnn I was such a huge fan of his when I was growing up.

  • NumbuhOne

    @EmmittSmith22 was my favorite football player growing up, right behind Roger Staubach. Now, no more. #3 just moved up the list to #2.

    • lonestar

      If your favorites were Terry Bradshaw and Lynn Swan, you would still have your untarnished favs.

    $10,000 buys 20 murdered infants.

  • plaingolf

    Why would he not donate to her? He probably has paid for quite a few abortions over the years.

  • John Smith

    A pro athlete is also a leftist punk and support baby murder?
    Surprise!
    He probably had forced abortions on dozens of women he had sex with.

  • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

    A good waste of money. Typical low info voter. Davis the baby killer has no chance in hell of winning. She’s the Left’s Sarah Palin.

  • LR99

    And I bet he voted for obama because he’s black! Just because Emmitt was a successful sportsman doesn’t mean he has a brain or even gives a damn about our nation!

  • jaded

    Does he have a head injury? Hope it isn’t above the amount allowed for campaign financing. or maybe I don’t hope.

  • Aimee

    My opinion of him just took a nose dive.
