Michael Wilbon, Co-host of ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” Compares Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones to a Slave Owner (VIDEO)
UNREAL … SO NOW INDIVIDUALS WHO PAY BLACKS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IS NOW A SLAVE OWNER.
ESPN’s Michael Wilbon, co-host of ‘Pardon the Interruption’ has compared Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to a slave owner following his comments that he would bench any player who did not stand for the national anthem. Wilbon said, on the sane day that ESPN suspended Jemele Hill for her social media comments against Jones and the Cowboys, “And the word that comes to my mind? and I don’t care who doesn’t like me using it?is plantation. The players are here to serve me, and they will do what I want. No matter how much I pay them, they are not equal to me. That’s what this says to me and mine.” Hmm, what will ESPN do to Wilbon? So Jerry Jones is only showing leadership when they agree with the players, really?
Michael Wilbon, you have freedom of speech to say anything, but there will be consequences to your actions. You are a fool if you think that entitled player making millions is a plantation mentality. You sir, just might be a racist yourself.
On the same day that Jemele Hill was suspended from ESPN for tweeting about politics, another network personality, Michael Wilbon, compared Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to a slave owner.
Mr. Wilbon, co-host of “Pardon the Interruption,” took issue with Mr. Jones’ stance that players who do not stand for the national anthem before football games will not play.
“And the word that comes to my mind? and I don’t care who doesn’t like me using it?is plantation,” Mr. Wilbon said on Monday’s show. “The players are here to serve me, and they will do what I want. No matter how much I pay them, they are not equal to me. That’s what this says to me and mine.”
ESPN declined to comment on Mr. Wilbon’s remarks.
Really, a plantation? So NFL players who make millions of dollars playing a game is slavery? Go figure. Keep it up ESPN, you are already hemorrhaging viewers, next up, you will never see another NFL contract. You are losing America and NFL fans every time a host opens their big mouth.
ESPN Suspends Host Jemele Hill From Network for Two Weeks … Now ESPN Has a Real Problem, LEFT & RIGHT Have Issue With Them
YOU THOUGHT THE NFL HAD A PROBLEM, NOW ESPN HAS AN EVEN BIGGER ONE …
It appears that the second time is the charm at ESPN. The Entertainment Sports Programming Network has suspended Jemele Hill for two weeks for violated the company’s social media guidelines for a second time. Hill called for fans to take action against the Dallas Cowboys after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stated that players that did not stand for the national anthem would be benched. Hill wrote, “Change happens when advertisers are impacted. If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers.” Brilliant move on the part of Jemele Hill, seeing that ESPN has an NFL contract and if they ever want another one in the future, pissing off the NFL and attacking their teams is probably not the smart move.
Jemele Hill, the controversial ESPN anchor who called for fans to boycott the NFL after labeling President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter, has been suspended for two weeks by the network.
Hill violated the company’s social media guidelines a second time, according to ESPN, after she called on fans to take indirect action against the Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they didn’t stand up during the national anthem.
“Change happens when advertisers are impacted,” Hill wrote. “If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers.”
Hill wasn’t formally punished for mocking Trump on Twitter, but ESPN took action when she called for fans to boycott the Cowboys’ advertisers.
“Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines. She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how much individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such action would have consequences. Hence this decision,” an ESPN spokesman said in a statement.
Who didn’t see this coming after ESPN did nothing to Hill for her “white supremacist” comments toward President Donald Trump when he said that NFL player should stand and players should be fired if they do not stand. Now she is pretty much doing the same thing but this time toward an NFL owner. A note to Miss Hill, you have a code of conduct and rules where you work, so do NFL players. If the NFL and ESPN continue on this path, both will find themselves without viewers and a business.
UPDATE I: Rev. Al Sharpton threatens to boycott ESPN.
ESPN is in a bind now ad the liberal sports network has brought it on themselves. They are now taking it from the RIGHT and the LEFT after their pathetic handling ofplayers taking a knee during the national anthem.
The Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (NAN) announced they’ll stage a press conference in New York Tuesday to address ESPN’s suspension of Jemele Hill.
The protest will be held outside of the Disney-owned network’s Upper West Side offices at 12 noon ET. Hill, co-anchor of ESPN’s 6 p.m. ET “SportsCenter” with Michael Smith, was suspended two weeks by ESPN Monday for what the company called repeated violations of its social media policies.
“Rev. Sharpton and NAN will call for a meeting with the Chairman of the Board and demand an immediate reinstatement of Jemele Hill along with other demands pertaining to corporate diversity,” said Sharpton and NAN in a joint statement.
Al Sharpton Calls for Ending Federal Funding for the Jefferson Memorial Because President Jefferson Owned Slaves
AMERICA, YOU WANTED TO KNOW THE END GAME OF THE LEFT … HERE IT IS, THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS.
Al Sharpton calls for the ending of federal funding for the Jefferson Memorial because the third president of the United States Thomas Jefferson owned slaves. Listen to the lies below of a man who have done more to divide a country than any one in the current political lexicon. Sharpton’s hate for Trump that is only expounded by his hatred for this country. This is what the LEFT wanted all along, the destruction and illegitimacy of our Founding Fathers and the United States of America. Listen to the video below and hear the lies of the LEFT. They so hate this president and this country that they are willing to say and do anything.
A note to the gutless politicians who keep allowing statues of the past to be removed. You are willful dupes in the LEFT’s end game.
MSNBC host Al Sharpton is calling for ending federal funding for maintenance and security for the Jefferson Memorial because the third U.S. president owned slaves.
“When you look at the fact that public monuments are supported by public funds you’re asking me to subsidize the insult of my family. I would repeat that the public should not be paying to uphold somebody who has had that kind of background,” Sharpton told CBS host Charlie Rose.
“You have private museums, you have other things that you may want to do there,” he added.
The Jefferson Memorial is a large structure on the banks of the Potomac river, sitting on federal grounds.
Jefferson “had slaves and children with his slaves. And it does matter,” Sharpton continued.
“I think that people need to understand when people that were enslaved and robbed of even the right to marry, and had forced sex with their slave masters, this is personal to us.”
“This is personal,” Sharpton exclaimed. “This is not some kind of removed discussion from us, our families were victims of this. Certainly they ought to be removed.”
Trump asks what’s next?
DOES ANY ONES REALLY WONDER WHY KAEPERNICK DOES NOT HAVE A JOB IN THE NFL?
Kaepernick just does not know when to shut up. NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick stated following the acquittal of a police officer in the shooting death of a black motorist that police officers should be compared to fugitive slave patrolmen. WHAT? And he wonders why no NFL team has signed him? A note to ESPN’s uber-lib Max Kellermen who last week demonized the NFL by playing the National Anthem as being political, who’s is being political Max? A jury of twelve individuals cleared Officer Jeronimo Yanez of all charges connected to his July shooting of Castile, a black man. Yanez shot Castile seven times in the presence of his girlfriend and daughter after pulling him over because Castile reportedly fit the description of a robbery suspect.
As opined at IJR, he has no team, but Colin Kaepernick isn’t finished stirring up trouble and now he is still going after cops. They stated, “One would think that, with his career on the line, Kaepernick might tone down the political rhetoric — particularly the more inflammatory statements, but one would be wrong”. Kaepernick has the freedom of speech to say what he wishes and the NFL teams and their owners also have the rights to avoid this distraction like the plague.
Just how lazy could one really be in their thinking.
NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick compared police officers to fugitive slave patrolmen after a Minnesota officer was acquitted in the shooting death of a black motorist.
Kaepernick tweeted his displeasure with the verdict, with a graphic reading “You can’t ignore your history – always remember who they are.”
Between the lines, a police badge is shown side-by-side with a “fugitive slave patrol” badge.
THE SHARKS ARE IN THE WATER … This time its racial discrimination.
Yet another lawsuit from previous employees at Fox News. Kelly Wright, a black reporter and anchor who has been with Fox News since 2003, is one of 13 plaintiffs, all people of color who are either current or former Fox News employees, to sue the network in the last month charging racial discrimination. Of course this comes on the foot heals of the ousting of Bill O Reilly and the accusations made against Fox News conservative host Sean Hannity. Most likely noticeably absent from the plaintiffs would be Charles Payne, Juan Williams, Larry Elder, or Arthel Neville .
Fox News’ legal troubles grew even larger Tuesday, with new plaintiffs, including an anchor, joining a suit alleging racial discrimination and harassment at the network.
The suit is now headlined by Kelly Wright, a black reporter and anchor who has been with Fox News since 2003. Wright claims that he “has been effectively sidelined and asked to perform the role of a ‘Jim Crow’ — the racist caricature of a Black entertainer.”
Wright’s allegations involve, among others, recently fired Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and current network co-president Bill Shine.
The suit claims that Wright was shunned from O’Reilly’s now-canceled program, “The O’Reilly Factor,” and that Shine “has demonstrated an obsession with race when it comes to discussions with Mr. Wright, including regularly asking him, ‘how do Black people react to you’ and ‘how do you think White viewers look at you?’”
In one alleged example, Wright claims that he was rebuffed in his efforts to show a series of positive stories about the African-American community on the “Factor” because, according to the complaint, “it showed Blacks in ‘too positive’ a light.”
It would appear that the liberal media are adding fuel to the fire as Breitbart opines, this Wednesday’s episode of NBC’s long-running crime drama Law and Order: SVU will focus on a powerful news executive who has been accused of sexually assaulting one of his network’s on-air personalities.
The episode appears to be inspired by former Fox News network chief Roger Ailes, who resigned following a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson.
While the episode appears to be styled to mimic the real-life drama surrounding Ailes, none of Ailes’ accusers, including former Fox News star anchor Megyn Kelly, have ever accused the former Fox News chief of rape.
UPDATE I: Kelly Wright Says, “Well, I’m not here to be a token, either. I’m here to be a valued employee.”
Just curious, what exactly was it that Wright was discriminated against? At any given time you could have gone to any one of the other networks. He stated that he admires and loves the very people he is going against. He should be respected for having principles, but he also claims to love the very people he is against. What makes Kelly Wright or any one of the others suing Fox News is not the same at CNN, MSNBC et all.
