ESPN Blasted for Political Correctness … Liberal Network Pulls Asian Announcer Robert Lee from UVA Football Game for Fear of Offending Idiots
ESPN, THE FINAL ACT OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IDIOCY … EVEN BEING AN ASIAN-AMERICAN DOESN’T STOP YOU FROM BEING A RACIST, WHITE SUPREMACIST.
UNREAL, I actually thought this was an Onion headline when I first saw it. ESPN has gone to a place of idiocy and political correctness that is even out there for them. ESPN is actually going to remove an announcer from calling the University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee. Is this man a white supremacist, racist or even a descendant of Civil War Confederate General Robert E. Lee? Nope, this Robert Lee is Asian. Can we just call ESPN, MSESPN from now on? Believe it or not, the fools in management at ESPN were concerned that having an Asian football announcer with the name of Robert Lee call a football game because it might e offensive to some viewers. What viewers, the moron contingency? I have news for you ESPN, snowflakes don’t watch football. Here is a question to ESPN and those that want to continue to watch the network, do you really think the people that watch your network are really that stupid? ESPN i already hemorrhaging viewership, maybe its time we no longer watch this liberal network at all seeing that they want to be more political than sports.
Just how ridiculous and foolish has this got? This is an indictment of ESPN in that there is no one there reasonable to differentiate the difference between Robert Lee and Robert E. Lee. Does this mean that some one is being discriminating against another for what another did. Even if this was the great, great grandson of Robert E. Lee, is he to blame for what his ancestor did? ESPN, you are idiots and should be ashamed.
Tucker Carlson Questions Why ESPN Pulled Asian Announcer Robert Lee Off The Air
Apparently, even being Asian doesn’t mean people won’t take you for being a white nationalist.
ESPN confirmed Tuesday night that it had decided to pull an announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee. This Robert Lee is Asian.
“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties,” reads the ESPN statement posted at the popular Fox Sports college-football blog Outkick the Coverage.
“Did I mention that Robert Lee is Asian?” wrote disbelieving blogger Clay Travis, who first broke the story, citing “multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN.”
Mr. Lee had been scheduled to call the Cavaliers Sept. 2 game in Charlottesville against William and Mary.
“It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue,” ESPN said in its statement.
Hmm, I am not seeing any similarities.
What kind of mental midgets are running ESPN these days? Oh, can I say midget, or does that offend the delicate sensibilities of the fools at ESPN?
ESPN confirmed the report in a statement Tuesday night, saying that “in that moment it felt right.”
“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name,” ESPN’s statement reads. “In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.”
“This makes it a bigger story than it ever would have been,” Travis said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday, arguing that Lee announcing the game would have led to little more than Twitter jokes.
“Instead we are talking about how absurd this decision is for ESPN for days to come,” he said.
“Does ESPN really believe people are this dumb or that having an Asian announcer named Robert Lee is too offensive for the average TV viewer to handle?” Travis wrote. “Yes, yes they do.”
“I’m sorry you work for such an idiotic company, Robert Lee,” he wrote.
Let’s hope that ESPN doesn’t have any other football announcers with the names of Samuel Cooper, Albert Johnston, Joseph Johnston, P. Beauregard, James Longstreet, Braxton Bragg, George Pickett or Bill(William) Anderson.
Fox News – Hannity 8/14/17 … Discusses the Hate & Riots in Charlottesville Caused by Extremism … Don’t Ever Let the MSM Define You! (VIDEO)
THE HATE BAITERS ARE OUT IN FORCE … THE MSM LOOKS TO DIVIDE AMERICA …
It is hard to believe we have this type of hate, ignorance and racists in America today. However, this is such a small pocket of extremist hate on both sides of the political spectrum, right and left. This is what happens when hate meets hate. Thankfully, this is a minority of people, fringe groups, but you would never know that if you listened to the media.
It is a sad state of affairs when the liberal MSM tries to point blame at everyday, average, run of the mill Americans who are Republicans, conservatives or are on the Right, with extremest, ignorant white supremacist, Nazi types. The sick MSM took the opportunity this weekend to call President Trump and in turn all who voted for him as racists too. REALLY? The LEFT and the Attack Trump media took this tragic event as an opportunity to spread their own division and hate. It is bad enough we have this kind of evil, hate and ignorance in America, do we really need the MSM fanning the flames and calling hard working, law abiding citizens who they agree with racists too?
Oh the hypocrisy of the LEFT and the MSM … isn’t it them who remind us all the time that radical Islam is not Islam? We are constantly told that Islam is a religion of peace every time there is a terrorist event and that all Muslims should not be held responsible for the actions of the radical, extremist few. So what’s the difference? Nope, not when it comes to racism, some how the acts of white supremacists some how reflect the President and all whites who voted for him. REALLY?
Or what about the Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer who opened fire yesterday in Alexandria, Va on Republican Congressman as they practiced baseball for an upcoming charity baseball game? Weren’t we told this was not a reflection of all of the LEFT? We were told by Sen. Sanders that he condemned these actions. Hell, this guy volunteered for his campaign and we give the LEFT and Sanders a pass. But oh no, not when the vile MSM and their sick divisive agenda is at work. Their double standard and hypocrisy is disgusting.
NBC Reporter Andrea Mitchell Gets Destroyed by State Dept Spox Heather Nauert On Trump’s Threat To North Korea (VIDEO)
MSM GETS DESTROYED … MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN!!!
During yesterdays presser, State Dept Spokesperson Heather Nauert reminded the liberal MSM exactly really what is alarming and it was not the comments made by President Donald Trump regarding, “fire and fury”. The MSM acts as if a country making the threat of a nuclear attack is perfectly ok and should not be responded to. Nauert actually had to scold and lecture the media as to the gravity of the situation going on with North Korea as the MSM just wants to play silly season and attack Trump. Sorry, the Obama days are over of apologies to our enemies and drawing faux lines in the sand. There is a reason why Trump was elected by the American people and the MSM still cannot stand it. The days of kicking the can down the road with North Korea, as other presidents have done of both parties, are over.
“Let’s consider what is alarming,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. “What is alarming: two ICBM tests in less than a month, two nuclear tests that took place last year.”
“It is a big deal what is going on,” she added. “It is a concern to the world, not just the United States. Those are alarming actions, they’re provocative actions on the part of North Korea.”
“The United States is on the same page,” she said. “Whether it’s the White House, the State Department, the Department of Defense, we are speaking with one voice, and the world is, in fact, speaking with one voice.”
Trump Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller Shreds CNN’s Jim Acosta on Immigration: “That is One of the Most Outrageous, Insulting Things You’ve Ever Said” (VIDEO)
CNN’S FAKE NEW JIM ACOSTA GETS SCHOOLED AND DESTROYED BY STEPHEN MILLER …
Watch the VIDEO below and you will see and understand the liberal bias and their ivory tower attitude and bias that only people from English speaking countries speak English. UNREAL. The LEFT and libs from CNN and the MSM actually believe and espouse the fact that no one in France, Spain, Germany, the Middle East, China, Japan and even Mexico speak English. Miller said to Acosta, “Do you at CNN really don’t know the difference between greed card policy and illegal immigration?” Sadly, the answer is not that they don’t, they don’t want to and they do it intentionally. Here is a news flash to CNN, the rest of the MSM and the LEFT, immigration policy is meant to benefit the United States and its citizens, not the immigrant.
Maybe it is the LEFT who is really racist for even thinking like they do?
Take a look at what goes on everyday in the liberal newsrooms like CNN, MSNBC and their ilk as CNN’s Jim Acosta attempted to make the immigration bill seem as if it was some type of a racist bill that went against the fiber of America as he made a comment about that Statue of Liberty. This should have been a SNL skit, not real news as it was laughable.
“What the President is proposing here does not sound like its in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration, the Statue of Liberty says give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, it doesn’t say anything about speaking English or being able to be a computer programmer, aren’t you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country telling them they have to speak English?”
Stephen Miller then decided to educate the ignorant Acosta:
“Well, first of all, right now, it’s a requirement that to be naturalized you have to speak English, so the notion that speaking English wouldn’t be part of the immigration system would be actually very ahistorical …”
The real bombshells come at about 4:25 of the video when Stephen Miller completely destroys Jim Acosta and his elitist, liberal, cosmopolitan views. This was an epic take-down:
“Jim that is one of the most outrageous, insulting, ignorant, and foolish things you’ve ever said, and for you, that’s still a really . . . the notion that you think that this is a racist bill is so wrong and so insulting, Jim the reality is that the foreign born population into our country has quadrupled since 1970, that’s a fact, it’s been mostly driven by green card policy. Now, this bill allows for immediate nuclear family members to come into the country, much as they would today, and it adds an additional points-based system . . .”
Huckabee Sanders: Stephen Miller put Jim Acosta in his place
DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ AND THE DNC FIND THEMSELVES IN A LOT OF TROUBLE VIA AWAN …
Even though the liberal MSM does not want to cover this story because it does not fit their Russia-Trump narrative, it makes no matter as the story is coming out anyhow. The Debbie Wasserman Schultz/Pakistani IT Scammers is a huge story and there is much, much more than bank fraud going on here. Every wonder why the DNC never gave up the servers to the FBI? The LEFT has continued this false pursuit of President Trump and the Russians, when right under their very noses they have the story of stories. The only problem, the corruption, collusion and cabal is with the Democrats.
At last, I am in a position to help the New York Times. It’s a good feeling. As anyone who has stumbled upon their website knows, our former paper of record, underscoring its insatiable appetite to provide the public with all the news that fits its agenda, prominently features a solicitation for hot tips: Got a confidential news tip? it asks. Click and amaze the world.
I have a tip, an important one, though I cannot in truth call it “confidential.” Over the last few days, in fact, it has been blazoned across the samizdat press, outlets that your typical Times reader may never have heard of, or, if he has, that he reflexively discounts.
What’s it all about, Alfie? Computer hacking. A senior political figure threatening law enforcement officials. Destruction of evidence. Collusion with foreign powers. Financial corruption. Incompetence. Maladministration. Hot stuff.
Russia? Trump, Sr., Jr., or both? Nope.
It’s U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), former head of the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton groupie, and, right now, the Barbie Doll in the center of (at last!) a real scandal involving a Pakistani computer guru called Imran Awan, his wife Hina Alvi, various other family members, and the computer servers of various Democratic congressmen, including Schultz.
Last week, Awan was nabbed by the FBI at Dulles Airport trying to flee to Pakistan. His wife had already flown the coop for Lahore in March, taking $12,400 with her. (The poor thing forgot the read the fine print you see in all those travel advisories that it is a felony to transport more than $10,000 in currency without reporting it.)
Sunday is a big day of the week for The New York Times. Were you or (per impossible) I the editor of the Gray Lady, this story would have occupied a prominent place on the front page of Sunday’s edition. And sure enough, there it was, above the fold . . . Oh, wait, I was mistaken. It was not DWS after all. Silly mistake. It was actually an African herder surrounded by a bunch of goats. Also above the fold was a rare Times story lambasting Donald Trump. About Wasserman Schultz and the Iwan scandal there was precisely . . . nothing.
Not that the Times has totally ignored the story. On Thursday, the paper ran a deflationary column under the headline, “Trump Fuels Intrigue Surrounding a Former I.T. Worker’s Arrest.” (read the rest here)
More from National Review:
As you let all that sink in, consider this: Awan and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment — including hard drives that Awan & Co. smashed to bits of bytes before making tracks.
They were fired in February. All except Awan, that is. He continued in the employ of Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat, former DNC chairwoman, and Clinton crony. She kept him in place at the United States Congress right up until he was nabbed at the airport on Monday.
This is not about bank fraud. The Awan family swindles are plentiful, but they are just window-dressing. This appears to be a real conspiracy, aimed at undermining American national security.
