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.
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.
Louis Farrakhan Says, “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”
I know this is difficult for many of you to say and admit, Rush Limbaugh was right.
It did not take Louis Farrakhan long to prove conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh correct regarding the LEFT going after the American flag next. In an interview with WMAL, Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”. This hateful race-baiter went on to say, “They Don’t Give a Damn About Them 9.? Just days earlier Rush Limbaugh said, “And I’ll make another prediction to you. The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag.”
Hmm, who is spewing the hate?
Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.
Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”
He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”
Later, he declared, “I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag,” comments that were meant with cheers and applause.
C’mon LEFT, c’mon Media Matters, c’mon race-baitors, says it … RUSH WAS RIGHT!
Whoopi Goldberg & Rosie O’Donnell Go At It Against Each Other Over Racism … “YOU ARE A WHITE LADY TELLING ME WHAT IS RACIST!”
WHEN THE VIEW ATTACKS EACH OTHER … OMG, THIS SHOW HAS GONE IN THE TOILET, NO WONDER BARBARA WALTERS JUMPED SHIP.
There is nothing better than two liberals trying to out-liberal each other. Take a good watch and listen to Whoopi and Rosie go at it when it comes to racism in America. However, what might have been the best exchange was when Rosie O’Donnell tried to compare being gay to being black. Whoopi wanted no part of the comparison. Aren’t liberals so tolerant?
“Listen! You are a white lady telling me what is racist to you,” Goldberg said, with O’Donnell shooting back, “I am a gay American.”
“It’s not the same!” Goldberg said, raising her voice.
“You guys need to know what real racism is … Racism is when someone comes up and says (expletive) and die. That’s racist.”
Goldberg added that it was “ignorance,” and not racism, that caused racial profiling, but Cox disagreed, stating that it was caused by “implicit bias.”
“I’ve been black for 60 years,” Goldberg said. “For me, stupidity, dumb folks who just say dumb stuff because they’re not looking or paying attention to the person they’re talking to, which is why people could walk up to Obama and not look up at him and see that it’s the President.”
i guess it would be astonishing for blacks and gays to hear that even white folks have been profiled, followed in stores and asked to do things as if they were the hired help.
