Trump Lashes Out At "Politicized" ESPN, Here's Why

Tyler Durden's picture

Wondering why President Trump has lashed out at ESPN this morning with the following tweet?

Here is Free Market Shooter blog's Jon Hall to explain...

Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN’s SportsCenter, took to Twitter on Monday blasting President Trump as a “white supremacist”. She also labeled him as “unqualified and unfit” for America’s highest office;  claiming that his win was a “direct result of white supremacy”.

What are these comments coming from a sports network for? When people tune into a football or basketball game, they want to escape away from the woes and problems of the world; not have it infiltrate into their favorite pastime. Hill would probably call that notion white privilege because only white people have the benefit of escaping from their problems.

Not only that, Hill’s comments are downright rude. Along with spewing baseless, unproven vitriolic hate toward the President’s character, she responded to a user on Twitter during her tirade, saying:

“Glad you could live with voting for him. I couldn’t, because I cared about more than just myself.”

Again, why an ESPN host is chiding a potential viewer for their political beliefs is beyond me. She’s bringing up the tense and fractured race relations present in our country for little to no reason other than to be obnoxious.

It seems that Jemele Hill’s specialty, though, is to be obnoxious…

On her Twitter spree, she also hit on Kid Rock and his recent Senate bid, tweeting:

Here we go again! Hill and other leftists can label Kid Rock as a racist all they want – remember, it worked so well when they tried it with Trump – because simply nothing could be further from reality! Could Kid Rock, who gained sole custody of his son and parented as a single father since 2000, really be a racist when his son is black?

Would a racist like Kid Rock be honored with an award from NAACP for $50K in donations to his hometown of Detroit – a city wholly ignored by the Obama admin and Democrats left to deteriorate? Leftists and liberals may scream that Kid Rock proudly flies the confederate flag but it’s not hard to see that the flag means something completely different to him than it does to actual racists.

One, the confederate flag is also known as the rebel flag, which Kid Rock identifies with – he even has an album titled “Rebel Soul”. Secondly, Kid Rock’s greatest influence – Lynyrd Skynyrd, also flew the rebel flag; unabashedly and without apology.

Even though the Confederate flag has become mired with toxicity in the identity politics-laden landscape of the world today doesn’t mean it loses its meaning for regular, everyday Americans – ones that don’t have a racist bone in their body. Communist flags can be seen proudly flying at liberal protests but leftists seemingly get a free pass for adhering themselves to such a vile political ideology.

Leftists parade with communist, BLM, Antifa flags – movements associated with real fascism, violence, and hate  – but outrage is solely directed toward the rebel flag. Yes, I understand the history of the Confederacy and what leftists think the flag represents. A better question, I think, directed to all on the left offended by the Confederate flag is:

What do the flags your side flies mean to your movement?

As usual, quick-to-offend liberals show no modicum of self-awareness. At this point, I’m sure that none of them own a mirror (or any sort of reflective surface) in their home because how could they look at themselves without feeling shame? Jemele Hill proudly parrots the false narrative of the Establishment-backed mainstream media and somehow thinks she’s doing good for the world instead of dividing it further.

Hill, with her comments, sported like the underdog – putting white, racist America on notice – but really, Hill’s comments and thinking are painfully standard nowadays. On any given network, you can expect a huge liberal bias – and sadly, that includes non-political networks like ESPN, TLC, and others. For instance, last April, former All-Star pitcher-turned-baseball analyst Curt Schilling posted on Facebook:

“LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die. 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.”

Like Hill, Schilling espoused political opinion online. The only difference? Schilling shared conservative views, a total no-no in the entertainment industry. Curt Schilling was let go after his comments, fired by ESPN. In Jemele Hill’s case? ESPN apologized for Hill’s remarks and said her views do not reflect the views of the network. In the broadcasting industry, it’s acceptable for leftist-fueled tirades against, well, anything but conservative or right-leaning views do not get granted that same allowance.

Consider Bob Costas’s famous rant on gun control he gave during a Sunday night game of football between the Cowboys and Eagles…

You want some actual perspective on this? Well, a bit of it comes from a Kansas City based-writer Jason Whitlock with whom I do not always agree but who today said it so well today that we may as well as quote or paraphrase from the end of his article.

 

‘Our current gun culture,’ Whitlock wrote, ‘… ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenaged boys bloody and dead. …

 

‘Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.’

 

In the coming days, Jovan Belcher’s actions and their possible connections to football will be analyzed. Who knows? But here, wrote Jason Whitlock is what I believe. If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.”

…and simply ask yourself: could a conservative have given a pro-gun rant during Sunday night football without any outrage or blowback? Very unlikely.

Whilst claiming to be the ones slighted and chagrined, Jemele Hill; et al leftist personalities don’t realize they are the ones benefiting from actual privilege and advantage. Their views are allowed an unimpeded platform to be shared – others simply do not get that blessing. If your views as a personality do not align with that of the solely left mainstream media, you better do good to keep your mouth shut if you want to keep your job

Is it right? Certainly not. It is the standard, though – across the board for all networks and all programs, left and liberal views are bolstered while right, conservative views are stomped out.

This is dumb- Trump is proving he cares nothing about white middle- and working-class Americans

ghengis86's picture

They got tossed with cable a long time ago. Fucking annoying as hell. Oh, and you know they gave an award to a dude dressed like a lady, right?

If sports and politics are completely separate, then it should not matter to anyone whether a player takes a knee during the national anthem (which they are perfectly free to do).

You can't have it both ways.

disney has been clobbered because espn has buried themselves in debt and shoot their customer base.

cheka's picture

dumb angry black woman.  that's a rarity

Bendromeda Strain's picture

?? Nonsense. The argument isn't that they are separate, but that they should stay farther apart than the Left would prefer. Sports viewers are considered the last bastion of regressive Neanderthals, and a target rich environment for Progressive bullshit. The kneeling and fists are discussed on NFL broadcasts, and now their numbers are also beginning to suffer. Capice?

barndoor's picture

But when the right wants to conflate sports and politics, it's perfectly fine.  Only politics on the left are problematic.   Got it.

Thanks for this tip.

If you are a male, you were/are raised in a city and couldn't compete in sports; had a domineering mother that made you dress in girl's clothing; 5' tall with two left feet; or are a full bloom girly man. I don't care what you are.

Football weekends are Mardi Gras without a witching hour, get drunk, bet on football, stay tied to your university, give scholarships to your high school through your U, and use as a reunion for old roomies scattered to the 4 winds. The food is out of sight at the tailgates and in between pigging out and bullshitting, check out the other bets on the other games.

You need to get out amongst the lively crowd in the SEC, we fans can't help that the Babylonians are firing the Goyim and retaining their tribe and its tokens-manipulated ones.

ESPN......having their Bob Costas moment.

There's nothing quite like a overpaid, no talent, moronic, bigoted progressive screaming raaayzist at Kid Rock...LMMFAO!!!

I agree with you.  Kid's just the type of guy that certain liberals very much want to be racist (because it makes their world view a little more coherent).

I can't help but notice, shit is getting more bizarre by the day, or possibly the hour .. like snowflakes melting in July .. and it's not just the liberal / marxist / progressive snowflakes doing the melting ...

Lordy what a freak show ..

This shit keeps on, I'm gonna have to watch some reality tv, just to gain some perspective ..

Well I suppose this was to be expected ..

 

barndoor's picture

I dislike the snowflakes as well - the problem is POTUS is the biggest snowflake out there at the moment.

He dwells on every slight and can't let anything go.  I guess he thought that everyone was going to love him for 8 years straight.  I can't wait until he get voted out after his term.  He'll probably resign before the election just to avoid this.

Crying about the President- way to see the big picture, rube.....

barndoor's picture

Yes you're right - this place rarely discusses presidential politics.  I don't know what I was thinking.

I'm such a "rube".

Tweeting like a 12 year old girl while not accomplishing a thing

Giant Meteor's picture

Well you have to admit, the entire steaming pile of shit, commonly referred to as "politics" , resembles some cross between Saturday morning cartoons and a bad hollywood script, with B actors ..

But then, when one realizes the goobermint and all it's various minions and syncopants, paid hacks, lackey's, "journalists" and entertainers are paid to lie, lie so frequently, and effortlessly, that they are no longer are cognisant of their lies ..

Fake news?

What is the shock here, in the land of fake?

A mirror reflection of the culture, society writ large, near as I can tell .. who have been so incessantly lied to .. well you get the point. Poor things ..

My best hunch is, there will be major calamity, disaster, false flag, upset, as far as the eye can see, and not just in these disunited states of fakery.

As I have often stated, Trump is a perfect metaphor , perfectly suited for the times ..

And although we've not yet reached the depths of a President Comacho, we must be getting closer ..

nmewn,

I've had white libtards in NYC attempt to lecture me (a so-called 'man of color') about 'racism' (and a whole host of other stupid shit). I just look at them and clear my throat a few times. 

Oh the fun!

ThisIsMadness's picture

If you feel that way, then you are playing into the MSM hands. The GOP and DNC do not care about Americans. They do not care about ANY American. Those are your enemies. Trump is a man alone in the swamp. He cannot make legislation, he can only sign legislaiton into law. Chucky and Nazi P are liars and traitors of the worst sort, ya know, like Ryan and McConnell. None of them have YOUR best interests in mind. Trump has exposed all politicians for what they are; conmen of the worst sort. Carnival barkers at a dilapidated, run down carinval.

So, sell your base out and then try to get the crowd back by playing your most obvious card. Typical politician Old Yeller, promise the world, kick your followers in the guts and then throw out a red herring. Not working this time buddy. 

Looking at some of the comments, I guess it is. (Sigh)

Stanley Lord's picture

You have no idea what you are talking about, Trump put DACA back in the hands of Congress, did you miss the eight years of Obama going around Congress and ruling from the throne?

 

Keep being duped, the media is trying 24/7 to drive a wedge between Trump and his voters-go along with the Trump bashing and you are as bad as the libs.

 

And don't trust Ann Coulter either, she is too friendly with NewsMax's Chris Ruddy, she is part of the GOP establishment also.

 

UndergroundPost's picture

Coulter really isn't part of the GOP establishment - they loathe her.

shovelhead's picture

She's a little too free with skewering the RINO's. Conservatives like her, Republicans, not so much.

People should focus on the law. Is Administrative Law Unlawful? Why and how did the Executive Branch become a legislative body? Philip Hamburger a law professor at Columbia wrote a book by that very title. Watch this excellent presentation at Hillsdale College:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wu3lw77t0E#t=16

The problem is these people in sports broadcasting have been indoctrinated in an educational system that has been exponentially stacked with people who lack the ability of critical thinking at both the administrative and teaching level. This is not to say none have the ability to logically reason, but most fit into this category. Much of their audience has not been affected by the same fate since a good number of people who are into sports are not the snowflake variety. However, I do realize there are too many sports junkies out there who fail effectively deal with the world around them. A good number of the sports broadcasting people believe their emotional rants are substantiated by what they have learned in the educational system and the media. Proof they lack the ability to reason and discuss how a society should function.

Al Gophilia's picture

He's a politician. How many since 1913 have worked out for The People? I'd be safe keeping 1 hand in my pocket counting them. I hope you're right but the uppercuts delivered by political champions over time have knocked me conscious. I don't swallow much of their bullshit anymore. It only leaves a bad aftertaste.

I know what I am taking about and he sold us out. You think it's some grand master negotiation plan. Well, it was , he sold you.

 

Ann is very accurate and now she the only one with the lim light testies.

Lol.

Old Yeller was a loyal heroic dog.

ESPN is part of the MSM and just like the MSM, they have been completely captured by the leftist SJW's that are ruining the West as we know it. These "people" simply can't help themselves and don't know when to shut up.

MozartIII's picture

Love sports! Never use ESPN for any updates due to their BS politics and progressive crap.

Big Creek Rising's picture

Truly they are "ruining the west as we know it"

Sorry, but a woman's place is not in the broadcast booth doing play-by-play for football or baseball. That's cultural appropriation.  You want some cheesecake asking insipid questions on the sideline or adding vapid comments during an injury time out? Fine, I'm getting another beer.  You want female broadcasters doing figure skating or womens basketball on ESPN3? Fine, men aren't watching so we don't care.

ESPN was built for guys and had a successful  run with the swedish bikini team selling us  beer. Now it's pushing bitches  into our realm and it's  losing money.

ESPN: please just leave the few last refuges for men, you might just make a profit again.

It's Robert Iger.

Pushing their ultra-liberal agenda through ESPN, ABC and Disney.

With Disney, turn them into ultra-liberal snowflakes early. 

j0nx's picture

Why anyone continues to feed this beast or pro sports in general is a mystery to me. $500 for a single game for a small family? They should be ashamed of themselves for the greed. That goes double for Disney. There will never be a dime spent in my house for either pro sports or Disney.

Despite her standard-issue black IQ,  Jemele Hill knows exactly what she's doing- she wants a fat payday, and already has lawyers lined up for her "I'm an oppressed black woman" lawsuit.   I've seen a couple of her broadcasts- she's lazy, and basically doesn't want to do the work- that's the ENTIRE issue for her, has NOTHING to do with her "beliefs".

That, or maybe this is some weird audition for "The View", because the world craves another angry lazy black woman.....  Either way, she wants the easy way out.

Trump is just trying to deflect from his treasonous DACA behavior. It's clearly a communication pattern of his - red meat .. betrayal ... repeat. The same can be said of congress. And people fall for it, time and again.
