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.

Former NBA great Michael Jordan has donated $7 million to establish two medical clinics in troubled Charlotte communities. Good for him, nice job!

One will be at 3149 and 3153 Freedom Drive; the other will be in the Brightwalk development on Statesville Avenue. It is not about taking a knee, it is about getting off your butt and doing something constructive to help and be a part of the solution. Instead of playing the victim card and complaining about injustices, Jordan took charge and made a difference. What a shining example of what to do.The billionaire owner of the Charlotte Hornets, greatest NBA player ever and a North Carolina native gave back to his community to make a difference.
Jordan gives not 6, but 7 million!!!
Michael Jordan is going public with his largest philanthropic gift, donating $7 million to establish two medical clinics in troubled Charlotte communities.
Jordan, the billionaire owner of the Charlotte Hornets and a North Carolina native, is making a personal gift to fund Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics, according to the Charlotte Observer. The clinics, projected to open in late 2020, are designed to serve some of the city’s densest areas of poverty.
“Michael really wanted to do something personally, he and his family, in the North Carolina area, separate from the work we’ve done with the Hornets,” Estee Portnoy, Jordan’s spokesperson, told the Observer.
In a statement, Jordan said he hoped the clinics “will help provide a brighter and healthier future for the children and families they serve.”
This weekend on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation,’ Senator Diane Feinstein (CA-D) stated there was no law that could’ve stopped the Las Vegas shooter. Feinstein went on to say that the Las Vegas shooter passed every back ground check and registered for hand guns on multiple occasions. She is looking to pass a law that will ban bump-fire stocks.
The truth of the matter is, and the LEFT does not want to hear it, there is evil in the world and government cannot prevent it from happening. With all of the gun laws we have, they could not prevent the heinous mass shooting in Las Vegas because bad people do not follow the laws and in some cases they do and still slip through the cracks. Feinstein says she is running for reelection; however, there are many on the LEFT that do not want her to run. She is 84. Believe it or not, she is not liberal enough for them.
“Could there have been any law passed that would’ve stopped him?” Host John Dickerson asked the senator.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that no law could have stopped the suspected shooter, Stephen Paddock, who was behind last week’s mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Feinstein spoke on CBS News’s “Face the Nation” about gun legislation in the wake of the attack launched from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel targeting a country music concert.
“Could there have been any law passed that would’ve stopped him?” Host John Dickerson asked the senator.
FYI Sen. Feinstein, there will never be a law in the United States that limits the number of firearms a lawful citizen can own. The day that happens, the United States of America will cease to exist.
Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Says Any Player who is ‘Disrespectful to the Flag’ Won’t be Allowed to Play … Hmm, Raising Your Fist Isn’t Disrespectful?
WE WILL BELIEVE IT WHEN WE SEE IT …
Dallas Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones stated Sunday that any of his players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem won’t play in games. Jones appears to be the first NFL owner to publicly make a stand about disciplining players who kneel during the anthem. Well I guess if you are America’s team, one might want to stand during the anthem. However, I guess it’s all how you define disrespect the flag, now isn’t it? Jones as asked about Cowboys defensive linemen Damontre’ Moore and David Irving who both raised their fists at the conclusion of the anthem. He conveniently claimed to know nothing of that. Really Jerry? Moore and Irving acknowledged after the game raising their fists at the conclusion of Sunday’s anthem. Moore stated he wasn’t disrespecting the flag, he has done it all year and he has a lot of family members with military background. Wow, another brain surgeon playing football. Gee Mr. Moore, what do you think you were doing it, honoring the flag by your actions? And the fact that you have been doing it all year is exactly why your owner has stated, NO MORE. So Jerry Jones, the ball is in your court, you going to suspend players like this? What would you define as a fist raised in the air to mean following the singing of the National anthem? Sorry, hardly patriotic.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Sunday that any of his players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem won’t play in games.
Jones is the first NFL owner to publicly make a stand about disciplining players who kneel during the anthem. Jones didn’t specify what kind of other demonstration he would consider disrespectful.
Cowboys defensive linemen Damontre’ Moore and David Irving stood alongside teammates during the national anthem before Sunday’s home game against Green Bay at AT&T Stadium. At the conclusion of the anthem, the two players raised their fists.
“I don’t know about that. But if there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play,” Jones said after the Cowboys’ 35-31 loss. “You understand? If we are disrespecting the flag then we won’t play. Period.
“We’re going to respect the flag, and I’m going to create the perception of it. And we have.”
Jones addressed the media for 22 minutes after the game. He spent the final seven minutes talking about how he’s adamant that Cowboys and other NFL players should stand for the national anthem in the wake of dozens of players around the league kneeling the first five weeks of the season.
HEY LEFT AND AMERICA HATERS, THE VP HAS FREEDOM OF SPEECH RIGHTS ALSO …
Yesterday, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of the Indianapolis Colts – San Francisco 49er’s NFL game when members of the 49ers team knelt during the playing of the American national anthem. Pence tweeted, “I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.” This is a position that an overwhelming majority of Americans and even more NFL fans agree with as well. Of course the liberal MSM, all they can say is that this was pre-planned. Really, it was planned, that is all you got? Mike Pence was the former governor of Indiana and was scheduled to be there long in advance for Peyton Manning and his ceremony. If 49er players acted a fool and knelt for the anthem, of course Pence had every right to leave. Guess what, if the 49er players decided to respect the Flag and the Country, Pence would have stayed.
Vice President Mike Pence walked out on his home-state Indianapolis Colts Sunday when members of the opposing team kneeled for the national anthem, but a report that Colin Kaepernick, the player who started it all, will stand if given another shot in the NFL was quickly dialed back.
“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence tweeted.
Several San Francisco 49ers players kneeled for the anthem on Sunday in Indianapolis.
Pence later posted a statement which read “I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us.”
Hw brave of the MSM, they interview 49er fans as to their reaction. How comical.
Later, President Donald Trump later tweeted, “I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.”
A note to the moron 49er player Ed Reid who stated, this is what systemic oppression looks like. Grow up you fool. No you frigging idiot, this is what freedom of speech looks like. To the ignorant Reid, it looks like a PR stunt? Really? One might say your kneeling is a PR stunt, hmm? What the ignoramus Reid and the NFL is about to learn in a real way is that Americans have free speech rights too and that is they can walk out on the players and the NFL. For every action, there is a reaction.
Ed Reid and your ilk, you foolish and misguided, entitled players are not the only ones that are afforded Freedom of Speech. We have the right to boycott you and the NFL and we will.
