In a story that sounds like it comes from the Onion we learned that ESPN is pulling one of their college football commentators from the upcoming William & Mary/UVA football game because his name is Robert Lee.
Oh, and did I mention Robert Lee is Asian?
It doesn’t get any crazier than this.
But they scoffed when Donald Trump said political correctness has run amok.
Anybody else wondering how long it will be before they come for Sheila Jackson Lee?
Robert Lee is bad enough.
But Sheila Jackson Lee has two – count’em – two Confederate Generals in her name: Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee.
What more evidence do you need that Sheila Jackson Lee is a white supremacist?
She must be stopped!!!
These moronic appeasers of political correctness never learn.
When you cave to the tyranny of the mob, the mob will never be sated.
Frankly, I’m not surprised that ESPN did something so absurd.
This supposed “sports network” went all in for the Social Justice/Anti-American agenda quite some time ago.
And they deserve every ounce of mockery we can dish out.
ESPN’s statement is just laughable:
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. 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.
“We regret” that it has “become an issue?”
Earth to ESPN, you’re the ones making it an issue.
You see, ESPN suffers from what I call “Offendophobia” – the illogical, inexplicable fear of offending the easily offended.
But what they fail to grasp is those who suffer from Offendophobia will never stop being offended no matter how often you cave to them.
All ESPN has managed to do is beclown themselves.
