ESPN is an inclusive company, Really? Only if you think and toe the liberal intolerant line they are …
Remember when ESPN meant Entertainment and Sports Programming Network. It has now become the liberal Entertainment and Sports Politically-correct Network)
ESPN has finally done something that they have wanted to do for quite some time, they have fired ESPN analyst Curt Schilling. At the center of this controversy was a post that showed an overweight man wearing a wig and women’s clothing with parts of the T-shirt cut out to expose his breasts. It says: “LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.” ESPN has sadly become nothing more than liberal sports TV. If someone voices and opinion or makes a statement against a conservative, that is fine. However, dare go against their liberal values and you face the PC police and get fired. I think Powerline might be on to something, Trump may want to think about adding Schilling to the ticket. A note to all the other networks, you have an opening for sports network programming, take it. Many of us who have been with ESPN from their inception are sick and tired of their politics.
Curt Schilling, a former All-Star pitcher and one of the highest-profile baseball analysts on ESPN, was fired from the network Wednesday, a day after he drew intense criticism for promoting offensive commentary on social media.
Schilling, who had worked for the network since 2010 and most recently offered analysis on “Monday Night Baseball,” was dismissed after sharing a Facebook post this week that appeared to respond to the North Carolina law that bars transgender people from using bathrooms and locker rooms that do not correspond with their birth genders.
The post showed an overweight man wearing a wig and women’s clothing with parts of the T-shirt cut out to expose his breasts. It says: “LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.”
To that, Schilling added: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”
“ESPN is an inclusive company,” ESPN said in a statement. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”
Curt Schilling comments at 38 pitches, The hunt to be offended …
ESPN claims they are an inclusive company, but they are everything but with their liberal intolerance and pandering to political correctness. Imagine inclusive to be defined as only what we believe in. Yup, really inclusive. As Powerline opines, Inclusive? Of course, as Orwell understood, “inclusive” now means exactly the opposite: it means demonizing anyone who dissents from the orthodoxy of the identity-politics left. Like someone who believes human nature is real.The reality is that most individuals in America and viewers of ESPN have the same common sense beliefs about bathrooms. So maybe the Entertainment Sports Programming Network that has become way over the top liberal is saying that 95% of their viewership should be fired too and go elsewhere? You will remember, this is the same sports channel that recently gave
Bruce Caitlyn Jenner the Arthur Ashe Courage Award over other more deserved individuals. They previous year ESPN gave the same award to Michael Sam. Hmm, I am sensing a trend here. And this is also the same PC-inclusive company that reprimanded the same Curt Schilling over calling Muslim extremists, Nazis. You mean they are not?
Ex- New Orleans Saint DE Will Smith Shot to Death Following Minor Car Crash in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District
FORMER NFL PLAYER SHOT TO DEATH FOLLOWING CAR CRASH …
Former New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith was shot to death last night following a minor car crash in the Lower Garden District on Saturday night. Smith was shot and pronounced dead at the scene, after words were exchanged following a car crash with another driver who was in a Hummer H2. Smith was shot multiple times and his wife, Racquel, 33, was shot once in the right leg. Cardell Hayes has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of former Saints player Will Smith following a car crash.
Hmm, where is the black lives matter crowd on this one? Oh that’s right, black on black crime does not fit their narrative.
Former Saints defensive end Will Smith was shot to death in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District on Saturday night following a minor car crash, the coroner’s office confirmed.
Smith, 34, was shot after exchanging words with the driver of a Hummer H2 that rear-ended his Mercedes G63 SUV, causing him to strike another vehicle containing acquaintances of Smith, police said.
Smith was shot multiple times and his wife, Racquel, 33, was shot once in the right leg, according to police. Smith was pronounced dead at the scene, while his wife was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to New Orleans superintendent of police Michael Harrison.
“We are thankful for the outpouring of support and prayers,” said a statement released Sunday morning on behalf of Smith’s family. “We ask that you continue to respect the family’s privacy as they grieve the loss of a devoted husband, father and friend.”
Police said Sunday they had no evidence Hayes and Smith knew each other prior to the accident, but they were still investigating the motive behind the shooting.
Smith had 67.5 sacks, the fourth highest total in Saints history, in 10 years with the organization. He was a starter on the Super Bowl XLIV championship team, helping bring the franchise its only title. He also won a national championship at Ohio State and was the No. 18 overall pick in the 2004 NFL draft.
Smith did not play in another NFL game after tearing a knee ligament in an exhibition in 2013.
10 YEARS LATER … THE DUKE LACROSSE RAPE CASE AND THE PACK OF LIES FROM DISGRACED AND DISBARRED NIFONG.
ESPN has a remarkable 30 for 30 called “Fantastic Lies.” Its the story of the fake and trumped up rape charges against members of the Duke lacrosse team and the medias want and need to have the accusations in the case be true. If you have not seen it already, please do so. Although the three LAX Players, David Evans, Collin Finnerty and Reade Seligmann were exonerated of any crimes and reached settlements with Duke University, their lives could never have been the same.
Whats amazing is that it was a terrible confluence of black and white, rich and poor, and privileged and the not-so privileged. The MSM so wanted the accusations in the case to be true. Sound familiar? Sounds like the liberal MSM has not learned a damn thing in 10 years.
On the evening of March 13, 2006, a fateful party at a house in Durham, N.C. plunged the nation and its media into a frenzy of assumptions, social crusading, and miscarried justice. When the Duke men’s lacrosse team hired two exotic dancers during a night of drinking, one of the dancers accused three team members of a brutal gang rape in the bathroom of a run-down rental house just off of Duke’s tree-lined East Campus.
The story scratched every social-justice itch, and everyone seemed more than happy to scratch away, despite a lack of evidence. A little more than a year after the alleged assault, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper took the unusual step of declaring the three accused men “innocent,” after a “tragic rush to accuse and a failure to verify serious allegations,” and prosecuting Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong was disbarred and convicted of contempt.

SHUT UP AND DANCE WITH ME … YALE STUNS BAYLOR, 79-75!!!
Sorry folks, I understand that this is a 12-5 seed match up, but this was Yale. Yes the same Yale from the Ivy League. I don’t want to hear all the pundits suddenly saying that they saw this coming. This is Yale, all of their stats are based on playing Ivy League schools. And its their first tournament win EVER! Congrats to the Yale Bulldogs and their tremendous March Madness win. This is why it is the greatest playoff system in spite of the NCAA adding the first 4 play-in games.
With 14:29 left in the game, Brandon Sherrod took a seat on the Yale bench alongside Justin Sears. Somewhere in the Dunkin Donuts Center, expelled team captain Jack Montague sat in the stands, watching.
That trio accounts for virtually all of the Bulldogs’ leadership, not to mention three of the team’s top four scorers.
Yet with their first NCAA tournament game in 54 years in the hands of mostly underclassmen, the Bulldogs stretched their then two-point lead over Baylor to nine.
There are two ways for Cinderella to win in the NCAA tournament: Play a flawless basketball game, or play harder than your opponent.
Yale did both, which is why the 12th-seeded Bulldogs scored the first upset of this tournament, topping No. 5 seed Baylor 79-75.
Erin Andrews Awarded $55M Judgement Over Nude Video Against Stalker and Nashville, TN, Marriott Hotel (VIDEO)
The jury only took 7 hours to deliberate and award the verdict in favor of Erin Andrews …
Fox Sportscaster and Dancing with the Stars participant Erin Andrews has been awarded a $55 million judgement in the nude video lawsuit. The jury came back with unanimous decisions awarding the judgement to be split between her stalker, Michael David Barrett, and the owner and operator of the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University. Barrett will have to pay about $28 million, and the two companies that own the Marriott will have to pay about $26 million. Barrett previously pleaded guilty to stalking Andrews, altering hotel room peepholes and taking nude videos of her. He was sentenced to 2½ years in prison and he did not appear at this trial.
Sportscaster Erin Andrews won a $55 million judgment Monday against a stalker and the owner of a Nashville, Tennessee, hotel where he recorded secret nude videos of her.
The judgment, announced by a state circuit court jury in the late afternoon, is less than the $75 million Andrews had sought from the owner and operator of the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University and the stalker, Michael David Barrett, who has already served a prison sentence.
The jury deliberated for less than eight hours, splitting the blame — and the damages — roughly equally between Barrett, who will have to pay about $28 million, and the two companies, which are on the hook for about $26 million.
