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.
HE’S OUT … Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC.
Another one bites the dust at MSNBC; however, this time it was a resignation. The Politico is reporting that MSNBC’s Martin Bashir has resigned following the controversy and uproar started when the BSNBC host made sick and disgusting remarks toward former Alaska governor and GOP Vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Bashir had been on vacation since making the offensive comments and was forced to make an apology after he called Palin on air “a world class idiot” because she made a comparison to slavery while discussing U.S. debt to China and an even more vulgar slave punishment comment after that. All that and he still was not fired by NBC.
MSNBC daytime host Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC following controversial remarks he made about Sarah Palin, MSNBC president Phil Griffin announced on Wednesday.
“Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with MSNBC,” Griffin said in a written statement. “Martin is a good man and respected colleague — we wish him only the best.”
In his own statement, first published by Mediaite, Bashir announced that he had tendered his resignation following a meeting with Griffin and “further reflection” on his controversial remarks, in which he suggested that the former Alaska governor be forced to endure slavery-like conditions.
In 1756, he records that “A slave named Darby catched eating canes; had him well flogged and pickled, then made Hector, another slave, s-h-i-t in his mouth.” This became known as Darby’s dose, a punishment invented by Thistlewood that spoke only of the slave owners savagery and inhumanity.
When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.
It really does beg the question, how does one resign and not get fired for such offensive, planned comments made on air, unless the network agrees with the comments, but just can’t take the heat? Bashir hasn’t been on the air since November 22. MSNBC said he was on a pre-planned vacation, but it appears the vacation has turned into a resignation. MSNBC and parent company NBC still have literally taken no public action against Brashir for his comments. How amazing was the lack of punishment against Brashir for his vulgar comments, even Lefty Alec Baldwin had to question why he was fired and Brashir was not.
Martin Bashir: “After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments. I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.”
MSNBC president Phil Griffin: “Martin Bashir resigned today, effective immediately. I understand his decision and I thank him for three great years with MSNBC. Martin is a good man and respected colleague – we wish him only the best.”
Good man and respected colleague, eh?
Sarah Palin Cancels Interview With NBC’s Matt Lauer In Protest of the Lack of Action Taken Against MSNBC’s Martin Bashir for His “Violent & Hateful Rhetoric”
Looks like Matt Lauer will not be getting extra frequent flyer miles to Wasilla, Alaska …
Sarah Palin has canceled an upcoming interview with ‘The Today Show’s’ Matt Lauer due to NBC’s lack of taking any action against MSNBC’s Martin Bashir for his vile, disgusting,”violent and hateful rhetoric”. Bashir was forced to apologized to Palin and his 10 viewers Monday for his comments in which he called “totally unacceptable,” when he said someone should $hit in her mouth and piss in her eyes for her comparison of slavery to the national debt. Hmm, can you really apologize from making such a comment? Palin is upset that Martin Bashir has received “ZERO” punishment from the network, not termination, not a suspension, not a slap on the wrist, nothing! Just a lame apology. If Brashir actually had the intellectual honesty and listened to Palin’s comments, she is 100% correct. The out of control $17 trillion debt and climbing will put our children and grandchildren in fiscal chains.
Hmm, who is it again that has a war on women? Just curious, where is NOW? Imagine if a male on FOX News said the same about a prominent Democrat woman, think they would still have a job? Maybe if more conservatives stopped doing interviews on NBC News channels because of the insane rantings of their moonbat affiliate MSNBC, the network would actually attempt to make MSNBC actually perform in a professional manner.
It’s no secret that Sarah Palin is mighty steamed at MSNBC and Martin Bashir over his despicable remarks about the abusive treatment he imagines for her.
And now she’s doing something about it.
The former Alaska governor was scheduled to sit down with Matt Lauer for a Christmas season interview. That’s now toast.
Palin has now canceled Lauer’s scheduled trip to Wasilla, a source close to her tells me. It’s not because Palin is upset with Lauer or the “Today” show, but as a protest against NBC for not taking action against Bashir. In fact, Palin once sat in as a “Today”co-host.
Tim Crawford, treasurer of Palin’s political action committee, had told NBC News President Deborah Turness and MSNBC President Phil Griffin that “Americans deserve to know that your network doesn’t condone violent and hateful rhetoric.”
