Perhaps next ESPN will be offering to buy out Free Republic.

MSM “sports” = MSM = DNC = Sharia.

What’s so hard to figure out?

Agreed and since the Golf Channel is now wholly owned by NBC, hes prospects there won’t be much better.

Didn't Kenny Mayne tweet he was going to crash into a car that had a Palin Sticker but didn't because he thought it might have children in the car.

KM was mean spirited. PA was offering good political humor.

PA offered nothing but facts. I guess that’s taboo now. Give the *wrong* facts and you will be silenced. That’s where we’re at.

Ever since they kicked Limbaugh out for suggesting McNabb was being over-rated simply because he was black, I’ve been dissapointed in ESPN. ESPN goes so “big” when two black coaches are in the Super Bowl or when two black QB’s are in a championship game. It makes you wonder why they get a ‘flop-sweat’ when someone suggests it’s being over-blown because of the race issue. Certainly the other side of the coin is worth a ‘look-see’ as well. We’re all adults, right? Limbaugh found out otherwise.

This Azinger thing is similar. He made a snarky joke about the President. Big deal. We hear snarky jokes all the time about the GOP. Maybe one day anyone who’s conservative will have to talk in whispers so the ‘thought police’ don’t overhear him or her.

Nothing is more debilitating to a society than ‘one-party’ rule. When either the political left or political right starts to dominate or stiffle opposition talk, the entire country gets of of whack. The political left has really got to grow up and allow some room for the Limbaughs and Azingers of the world to speak their mind without acting like they just dropped and “F-bomb’ in church.

By the way, McNabb was over-rated in my opinion and it might have because he was black...or not. I’m not saying it’s true but, I am saying it’s certainly worth debating.....except on ESPN.

I take exception to this reasoning. It sounds oh so tolerant but just serves to give cover to evil. Extremism on the left violates our basic rights of free conscience and free association. Extremism on the the right defends these rights. I can stand a little conservative extremism right about now...

Not surprising. It's open season on Tim Tebow at ESPN. The conclusions are obvious.

ESPN has taken a hard turn left ever since the whole Rush/McNabb thing.

Not only that, but if you are white, you have to be a foot shuffeling, self hating racial diversity whitey, too. You have to be willing to racially debase and discriminate against other whites.

I get your point to be sure but, the politcal right has its extremes, too. Extremism from the right is not; however, asking for balanced budgets and protecting the constitution. Those are simply principals.

Extremism from the right side of the aisle includes strong religous views (to the point where no alternative can be accepted) and blatent sexism as well as racism. A conservative believes in some sort of social safety net as long as it doesn’t become a hammock and/or a ponzy scheme like our current policies have become. An extreme right winger doesn’t even believe in the safety net to begin with.

Good so far...

Who the hell (besides liberal talking heads) believes that?! These aren't conservative positions! Do you think the Westboro Baptists represent conservative extremism? Your answer will speak volumes on your education...

A conservative believes in some sort of social safety net as long as it doesn’t become a hammock and/or a ponzy scheme like our current policies have become. An extreme right winger doesn’t even believe in the safety net to begin with.

Let's go back to your first supposition about constitutional principles... show me where the Federal government was endowed with the authority to provide the public safety net in the form of retirement income... I'll wait...

You sure are a pretty intense person. I’m not calling out any religion or person in particular, I’m just describing what forms extremism can take on the political right. A good example of extreme religious views can be found all over the Muslim world. They have Sharia law....lack of tolerance....etc. This is extreme right wing stuff to me.

The federal government was empowered by the constitution to do three things: Protect the borders, handle interstate disputes, and conduct foreign policy. All other powers were left to the states. The constitution says nothing about a safety net. This power was granted to them by the people...and can be taken away by the people just as easily. With that said, I’m more against a congress and president that can’t balance their budget then the idea of a safety net.

Still, I agree that social programs should be closer to home. Unfortunately, my fellow countrymen do not support me on this (people love their social security). With the exception of Obama-Care, it’s hard to imagine any of the socail largese going away anytime soon so, I hit them with the math argument....which seems to have gotten their attention.

Now, dude: Calm down. You need to go running or something. I’m someone who probably mostly agrees with you. If you want to fight with someone, bring up some of your ex-girlfriends and your next wedding anniversary.

Read my profile... a major pet peeve is the exuberant display of ignorance. Today, you have that distinction. I'm not one to chill out in the middle of a discussion, nor will I back down when faced with falsehood.

A good example of extreme religious views can be found all over the Muslim world. They have Sharia law....lack of tolerance....etc. This is extreme right wing stuff to me.

You have a very strange view of conservatism... it conforms to an MSM template so I can guess where these views were nurtured. Once again, you are wrong to an extreme. Throughout the 20th Century, the Islamic world has aligned with the Socialist world. Why? They share a common view of the subjugation of man.

Have you ever heard how Iran got its name? It was changed by its leaders from Persia to align with Hitler's view of the supremacy of the aryan race. "Iran" was to show their membership of this race of men. The Grand Mufti of Iran was a major supporter of Hitler in WWII and, by some accounts, a partner behind "the final solution" for the Jews. I would remind you that contrary to liberal doublespeak, the Nazis were not conservatives, they were National Socialists.

The extremist examples you continue to show as condemnation of the right are actually leftists under different management.

Now, dude: Calm down. You need to go running or something. I’m someone who probably mostly agrees with you. If you want to fight with someone, bring up some of your ex-girlfriends and your next wedding anniversary.

You can keep your condescension out of a political discussion, if you please. It's meant to be disarming but is really just rude. I am passionate about the truth. Whether or not I get through to you, there are lurkers to consider.

In your opinion, what is an extremist political right point of view?
