Maybe it's the over-simplified response, but if you don't want the criticism that comes with making very political statements (and he'd be just as criticized if he came out with over the top political statements supporting the Democratic side too), don't make very political statements while still playing. I doubt too many people have changed their political views because of Thomas's statements.

There have been some athletes that have gotten involved in politics but it's been after they've retired. There's a reason not too many get involved while they're playing and it's because they don't want to alienate supporters of the other side.
