ESPN seems to be as stupid as the National Football League in failing to react properly to disgraceful social issues.
In the case of the NFL, they could have and should have put a stop to the unpatriotic and disgraceful protests of many NFL players. Instead, they not only wouldn’t stop the protests, but they supported those un-American protests, but they have caved into the players’ demands and diverted millions of dollars from worthwhile charities to socialist activists’ charities. Now, the NFL and many of their teams are suffering financial trouble as millions of Americans have stopped watching the games on TV, stopped buying tickets to games, cancelled the last television broadcast of the final Sunday Night Football Game and have stopped buying NFL memorabilia, and yet they still have no clue as to why they are financially hurting.
ESPN is just as stupid as the NFL and are clueless as to why. Over the past year, ESPN has been experiencing a financial downturn and have twice laid off a number of employees. Yet, they continue on their way, following some of the same hypocritical policies that are partially responsible for their own economic woes.
I also suggest that ESPN is afraid of female employees, more than they are afraid of male or black American employees.
In 2016, famed Major League Baseball pitcher Kurt Schilling, a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame, was an announcer/commentator for ESPN. On social media, Schilling called then presidential candidate Donald Trump a:
“white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”
Schilling was subsequently fired by ESPN.
In 2017, Jemele Hill was employed by ESPN. Like Schilling, Hill called President Trump a ‘white supremacist’. Her comment was no different than the one made by Schilling that resulted in his firing by the same network. Hill is a black American female racist activist and many believe that is why ESPN only removed her from her position on Sports Center but did not fire her.
Last week, ESPN fired former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb over claims that he was guilty of sexual harassment. The allegations against McNab were made in a lawsuit filed by a wardrobe stylist who worked for NFL Network at the time, said that she was sexually harassed by McNab, Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor, Eric David and Warren Sapp. She claimed that McNab had sent her text messages that were sexually explicit. That’s why ESPN wasted no time in firing McNab
In the latest incident involving an ESPN employed personality, the sports network again showed their hypocritical cowardice of women. Katie Nolan, an ESPN host was on the Desus & Mero show when she referred to President Trump as a ‘f—ing stupid person’.
Her statement is the most vulgar of them all and yet, all ESPN has done so far is to suspend her. They didn’t fire her for statements far worse that what Schilling said, but then Nolan is female. Is it any wonder ESPN is losing viewers and having to layoff employees?
Is ESPN afraid of women or is it that they just have a huge double standard in the way they deal with female and male employees?
