ESPN Hatchet Job

Posted on 04/26/2014 3:52:54 PM PDT by stirrinthepuddin

First, please allow me to qualify my remarks by saying that I myself am a 'half and half', obama look-a-like individual.

A lot of times, no matter how politically correct I try to make my thoughts come across, to some .. it just doesn't matter!

Now to my rant?

I was listening to espn this afternoon (my bad) when all of a sudden the host went on a tirade.

Of course it was all about the Donald Sterling fiasco!

Without going into all the details let me just say that after the host's complete, politically correct .. I am a white guy who is offended tirade, he went on to call on an 'expert' on civil rights and racism .. Al Sharpton!

Al Sharpton thinks that a suspension and fine is not enough for Sterling, Sharpton wants to dismantle the Clippers and put all of the players up for a draft!

As expected, Nothing about Sharptons affinity for racism!

I am wondering .. did anyone else hear this show today?

What happens if I say racist remarks about Whites?

What happens if I make racist remarks against Blacks?

I live in both worlds but find myself defending my White half much more often than my black half!

Can you be a racist if you are half and half? 8)

I believe that the world should be neutral!

You don't like blacks then that is a personal choice and there shouldn't be a 'penalty' for saying so!

Same goes if you don't like whites, hispanics, asians etc. etc.

We got Hate Crimes laws passed because people found the way an individual 'Thinks" is offensive!

I, for one am tired of the White Guilt society that liberals have created.

Live and let live!

you mean the espn that, aside from former athletes, there is probably about two or three white, Christian males as anchors or reporters?

There’s a widow who lives at the end of McKee St. in State College, PA who - to this day - wonders what she or her family did wrong. If espn doesn’t care about what they did to her, why would you think they would care about an nba owner?

It’s all about the clicks and the money.

Reverend Al Charlatan's reaction (take away the Clippers from Sterling) is a thousand times more frightening than Sterlings comments.

Didn't Al Sharpton sit next to this guy when he got an NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award?*

****Sterling is a wackadoo, and most likely a despicable person.

I wonder how long it will take liberals to realize that Donald Sterling is a lifelong Democrat(not a big time donor) but lifelong lib..and for ESPN to bring on Sharpton is despicable..Sharpton is a racist, same goes for Jesse Jackson(Who even though he hates white people, still has time to bang Tamera Holder)

Well Paula Deen is a liberal, therefore she is immune from being called a racist

Welcome to FR. Chit/chat is fine for these types of topics. I stopped watching ESPN some time agon. I had no idea, until a few years back, that sportscasters are just as liberal and stupid as other members of the media. Well, this will get lumped in with the Redskins name issue, eventually. You can expect Outside the Lines to do a story on the “racism” of team owners and how best to punish them.

Maybe he's just trying to save up some extra scratch so he can pay the IRS the million$ in back taxes he owes before some SWAT teams surrounds his house with 200 armed agents to collect the debt. Surely Obama hit him up for it when they were arm-in-arm together at the last fundraiser.

Wasn’t it her old man that enabled pedophilic faggotry in order to have more better sports?

Because sports are more important than little kids getting buttshagged by perverts?

Your rant is deserved. Would they (the race pimps) endorse dismantling the business of a black racist? Duh, no.
They are as racist as the worst hood wearing night rider of old.
Thanks for your words.

I guess that what set me off was .. the broadcast was a radio show.

I called and was on the phone for a good forty-five minutes.

When the screener finally answered, I told him what I wanted to say to the host in regards to Al Sharptons remarks .. He (the screener) hung up! 8(

Interestingly this may be coming out because of a lawsuit filed against Ms. V.

Excerpt: The wife of Clippers owner Donald Sterling filed a lawsuit Friday against a woman she alleged had a sexual affair with her husband.

The suit filed by Rochelle Sterling also alleged that the woman, identified in court documents only as V. Stiviano, was also given lavish gifts by Donald Sterling, including property and cash.

It’s the NBA that needs to clean its act up buddy, affirmative action with a quota system for Hispanics, Asians, Whites, Native Americans, etc.

So?

It is a free country.

Should he have his team take away?

Should the Al Sharptons and Jacksons of the world be allowed to profit from those remarks?

Should (And When?) will the leftists (And Blacks) be held to the same standards?

Plus, surely we can be rather sure there must be instances where players call each other names, the same word you hear in a lot of Rap music.

NFL has said they are going to try to cut down on “N-word” usage but that measure is probably going to be tabled.

From what I’m hearing, Sterling said something like he doesn’t want his girlfriend to be seen with Minorities, Blacks and Hispanics at games. I got the gist of what he said.


Harry Caray (spelling) long-time Chicago Cubs baseball announcer once said “the players are paid millions to play a kid’s game”.

This incident is unfortunate but Sterling had his privacy invaded, maybe not illegally but I’m not hearing Sterling using racial epithets.

I’m not sure why this is considered a “hatchet job.” Isn’t there a recording of Sterling telling his girlfriend not to associate with black people?

I used the term hatchet simply because that is what they have been doing ALL day!

Chop, chop, chop .. “let’s make sure that everyone knows that ‘Whitey’ is a racist”!

Whether or not they took anything out of context wasn’t really my point.

It is just the fact that they NEVER do the same ‘in-depth’ racial slurs reporting when it comes to minorities!

You still doing that “projection” thing? Go seek help. Your neighbors should also obviously be aware of your proclivities as well.

The guy should be suspended for this just like Marge schott was years ago. That’s it. He said what he said privately and he has the right to think whatever he wants in a free country. He needs a punishment for this coming out, mostly due to his stupidity for saying this and making himself and his business vulnerable.

If it is him on tape and both he and the girlfriend were in California, I believe that he is the victim of the crime of wire-tapping, as California is a two-party consent state IIRC. So the leftist media which favors the exclusionary rule (by which illegally obtained evidence is inadmissible in court even if it means a dangerous criminal goes free) and which thinks Snowden is a hero for disclosing government wiretapping suddenly has no problem at all broadcasting illegally-recorded private conversations (assuming that is the case). This Sterling sounds like a bad character. Nonetheless, I don’t think he should have to defend his purely private comments regardless of their contents.

And they say "we" and "us" as if they were somehow part of the team. That always cracks me up.
