"You're So Dumb, You're Beyond Hope" - ESPN Host Hits Out At Conservative Critics

Authored by Alex Thomas via SHTFplan.com,

Over the last few years the once dominant sports news outlet ESPN has come under fire for their perceived political bias after the network fired multiple employees for conservative viewpoints while propping up those that pushed the companies anti-Trump agenda.

From firing baseball icon Curt Schilling to allowing prime-time SportsCenter news anchor Jemele Hill to smear the president on Twitter, the network has an obvious liberal leaning and many conservatives have rightly called out this transparent bias.

Now, in a fiery interview with Sports Illustrated, one of the networks poster boys, Scott Van Pelt, has responded to his conservative critics by attacking them for even having the gall to question ESPN’s political bias in the first place.

Van Pelt attempted to act like a tough guy, calling out said critics for being cowards who he believes only speak out against ESPN on the internet but would never do so in real life.

“This make believe world where everyone talks shit, this shit talking, poke you in the chest virtual whatever it’s just there’s nothing more chicken shit than that, because it’s the easiest thing in the world to do,” Van Pelt laughably said before targeting those who have boycotted his network in the past.

In what one can only assume was a network approved attack on their critics, Van Pelt then described those that have boycotted ESPN as so dumb that they don’t even deserve to be prayed for.

If you truly wanna boycott the NFL and you wanna boycott ESPN, the notion that some guy sitting out there, or gal, and they decide, ‘you know what, I’m gonna cut my entire cable package because ESPN gave an award on a made-up show in July because there’s no sports, to a woman who used to be a man.


So I’m now not gonna have any cable TV at all and I’m gonna sit around at night and read books by candlelight like olden times because of that,’ that’s not happening.


And if you did that, than you’re so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope.

Yep, that is apparently what the networks most visible personality (and thus presumably the network as a whole) thinks about conservatives.

From Hollywood to the media, and now apparently the sports world, anyone with conservative viewpoints are being openly attacked and labeled racist as a means to silence all dissenting thought against the liberal world establishment.

Shit, I've been boycotting the NFL and ESPN for years before it became popular.  I've never watched ESPN and I rarely watch any sports.

i love it when legacy media outlets that have little or no obvious political content, like espn and gq (or popular mechanics) go out of their way to identify with the politics of their zionist owners.  like they are not losing market share fast enough, they have to insult half of their market in addition.

go you geniuses!

There has already been plenty of news that ESPN and NFL viewership is down some 15%, what is he possibly talking about?  It's happening so fast that ESPN is going to be in some kind of new business in 18 months because the old model is finished.

Dude thinks it's "dumb" to read.

"Nuff said.

I like the idea that you are dumb if you read instead of watching TV.

I'd tell him to listen to himself, but he probably does, he just does not hear himself.

Hey VanPelt, Never heard of you. Not dumb enough to waste my time on your network.


P.S.-  Read my middle finger.

Van Pelt wore out his kneepads on his ESPN lords- he knows that this is his last stop before winding up at Home Depot.....

A few weeks ago an AT&T U-verse salesman asked me if I watched sports and I believe my reply was "I don't watch that shit."

That's the real world around here anyway.

A few years ago my roommate was ordering internet and the guy was trying to up-sell him on a package with faster speed.  My buddy rufused a few times and the sales agent kept saying, "You guys don't play any computer games?"  Out of frustration my buddy responded, "No, we like to sleep with girls."  Make my laugh everytime I think of that story.

All of those phucksticks should be thanking their lucky stars that we don't all just sit around and read instead of engaging in their bullshit negro worship. They would be out of a (lucrative, BTW) job, and we would all be a whole lot smarter and well informed. Come to think of it, I do have a few titles I've been meaning to revisit...

Van Pelt: And if you did that, then you’re so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope.

Mr. Pelt, not dumb, heavily indoctrinated, because they can’t face criticism and different viewpoints. Indoctrination is a Judeo-Christian ethic.

Used by demagogues.

Imposed by dictators.

Haha. Tranny.

(S)he used to be known as Lucy van Pelt.

Kept pulling the football away from Charlie.

So she went to Swarthmore, and then got an "addadictomy" operation.

Voilà' ESPN snapped up this tart and named him Scott.

Similar story for all the ESPN "talent".

Menatally ill, sexually confused sport talk. 24/7

'tranny.'.... whoah... that's a good theory. maybe that's why so many of them have these high little voices...

MsCreant's picture

Home Depot has more class than that...Unlike ESPN they offer real value and real things. Why insult them like that?

MoreFreedom's picture

Note his lack of argument, and instead he just insults those who say things with which he disagress (and note half the country voted for Trump) are just engaging in "make believe s**t".  

Insulting those with which you disagree is "the easiest thing in the world to do."  Explaining why ESPN's critics are wrong is apparently too hard for Van Pelt even though he's a talk show host.  

I agree MsCreant, he is blind to his own actions.

I am surprised at some of the folks that succeed in these roles. What is wrong with the audience that he is interesting to watch?

I do not have cable. I have a TV set which I occasionally use to view a Netflix. I have watched very little TV in my lifetime but I have read thousands of books.

If this guy cannot find anything to do with his time other than watch TV he is very stupid and rather pathetic.

What kind of a tard is this guy, anyway? We stopped giving him and his owners money, therefore we must live in the stone age? Actually scot, I DO sit around and read in the evenings, but its usually with a lamp.... Apparently no ESPN equals no electricity to these people. But, I must say, I fucking LOVE IT when they lash out like this. Its a self sustainng negative feedback loop. I guaran-fucking-tee you at least a handful of people will see this and say 'you know what, Ill do just that. Fuck all ya'll'. Thats much more likely than someone being sad that this beta looking fuckboy attempted to make fun someone and causing them to start paying for his services again. Their hubristic nature pretty much insures the trend will continue. Shit, speaking of which, Im running low on popcorn.

Candles was a bit over the top but you should see my hoard of incandescent bulbs.

are you the Mogul type?


( i just received my ebay 300w mogul base for the old standing lamp of my grandma's - i got the warm flavor - pretty nice - but definitely a fire hazard)


Billy the Poet's picture

I also have an old floor lamp from Grandma with a huge socket. Never knew what that was called before.

Bigly's picture

You too?

It's so funny because some of you have the same 'oddities' as me....I have more than I will be able to use before I drop dead. I HATE other kinds of light.  And I certainly don't think their value is going down either.

Haven't u heard of the nu incandescent bulb technology Billy ??

May be even MORE efficient than LED !! 

U may have to re-assess your hoarding strategy....

Notice that he admits not once, but twice; that a signifigant portion of your cable or satellite bill is ESPN whether you watch it or not.

 ‘you know what, I’m gonna cut my entire cable package because ESPN...' and  'So I’m now not gonna have any cable TV at all and I’m gonna sit around at night and read books...'

It is a package deal. Ask your Congressman [sic] to pass a'la carte cable billing and watch ESPN's collective head explode.

Reading books; so simple a Neanderthal ('s descendants) can do it.

It just struck me - Cable? 

Cable is SO 20th century.

And I don't watch TV. but my partner has sattelite, as do the rest of the neighbors in the cul de sac - the cable line is still in, I spent a few hours ripping it out from under her just purchased old house. I mean, cable is dying.

Just finished "The Invention of Nature", a biography of Alexander Von Humboldt, a most fascinating guy that history kind of bypassed, but he was big in his day.


I highly recommend it.

Presently started on Salt, a World History. Jury is still out, but better than anything the NFL has to offer. But I'd rather DO sports than watch them - paragliding is my gig, or the Cub, cause I love flying. And sleeping with women is great, also.

I love it. They're not just shooting themselves in the foot. They're loading a fresh belt in a Browning M2 and opening up on their feet and shooting them off with gusto.

This isn't an accident. It's Darwin Award level stupidity.

The Social Justice Sports Network can just fuck off.

The correct answer would have been.  " Gosh we are bleeding, subscribers.  Maybe we should stick to inspirational stories of sports, showing sports, or talking about sports, but under no circumstances discuss politics.  And especially politics that conflict witht he politics of our key demographics."

And when an answer that obvious, is not offered, it makes me think there is something else that is at work.  Why would you flail away at a losing position that is costing you money.  Because it must not be about the money.  

Now that makes more sense.

Is he dating Anderson Cooper or Barney Franks now?

Had the exact same thought.  Obviously sitting on your fat ass watching grown men talk about watching other grown men throwing a ball around is far more mentally stimulating.  

And the fucking idiot still thinks us readers use candles... bitch I got a 6 watt LED

Hmmm, I wonder if Twitter will police this type of hate talk since it's against conservatives?

I hope he gets fired but I doubt it.

As for people who read, he can kiss my ass. There's a lot more content and satisfaction out of reading a book then there is listening to jackasses blither on because they like to hear themselves talk..this guy is a waste of skin.

Organized sports and cable tv are tools of jewish control. If you are reading this and still watch that crap then you need to seriously rethink your life, and if you don't believe that jews control that garbage then there is no hope for you.

Same here, but TPTB want us distracted by Sports Ball and other Circuses so they can continue to screw us, with nary a notice.

The only non-game show that I ever watched on ESPN was RPM Tonight.

I can boycott ESPN sponsors and still watch the games....Its a win/win situation for me!
