Hypocrite ESPN Pretty Boy Calls Non-Obama Voters "Racist" (Free Republic Mention Alert)
Debbie Schlussel.com ^ | 11/17/2008 | Debbie Schlussel

Posted on 11/17/2008 11:18:25 AM PST by goldstategop

Commenter "scottinoc" wrote on Free Republic:

On the discussion of why there aren't "enough" African American coaches in college football, Chris Fowler discussed the lure of big money NFL contracts for black assistant coaches, etc, then the discussion naturally gravitated to the racism angle, "behind the scenes".

"Among those behind-the-scenes financial backers of big universities, there may not be...you know...that many people who voted for Obama..."

Sheesh, now I can't even watch ESPN college football gameday without being told that I'm racist for not voting for Obama.

Thanks, Chris. Look in the mirror. And look at your own network and their bigoted casting call for a commercial for your own show.

Its now official: I'm a racist because I voted AGAINST Obama! So much for the liberal talk about how he would bring us all together!

They should keep politics out of football broadcasts. We don't need some blathering idiot telling us we're not "enlightened" enough to be for the One!

The Youngbloods - Get Together 1969

Love is but the song we sing,
And fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Know the dove is on the wing
And you need not know why
C’mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together
Try and love one another right now
Some will come and some will go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moments sunlight
Fading in the grass
C’mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together
Try and love one another right now
If you hear the song I sing,
You must understand
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It’s there at your command
C’mon people now,
Smile on your brother
Ev’rybody get together
Try and love one another right now
Right now
Right now!

Keep in mind that many of the talking heads on *any* news show, understand little more than what's flashed in front of them on a teleprompter.

I'm not making excuses for this lamebrained idiot (or many others on TV that I've had a hard time stomaching lately) ....just saying that we should remember that if an original thought ever crossed this doofus' mind, it would die of loneliness. The MSM has degenerated into little more than beautifully plumed parrots. Murrow, Swayze, likey could be used as an alternative power source as they spin in their graves.

About 20 years ago I subscribed to The Sporting News. Back before the internet. Back when TSN was the weekly mag for box scores, stats, and real sports news, especially baseball. (When Mrs. Henkster was pregnant with #1 son, I read him the box scores while he was in the womb. He’s a baseball nut, played 13 years, runs fantasy leagues, you name it. Sounds crazy but it worked).

Anyway, TSN evolved into the “social engineering advocate” for sports. The stats disappeared. News was replaced with opinion features, most of which pressed an affirmative action/homosexual tolerant agenda. The subscription lapsed.

ESPN is only continuing this same tradition. I’ve seen plenty of games in my 40 years as a fan. I don’t need some talking head to tell me what I just saw. There’s a few commentators I like (Joe Morgan, Joe Buck, Troy Aikman) but even during games I can get by with the sound off.

They should keep OLBERMAN out of football broadcasts.

I always elect officials that are best for the job, I don’t vote based on race, that is not a criterea for public office. Obama is a socialist. I didn’t vote for him because he is going to run the country into the ground.

Perhaps, could the reflexive of this also be true? That those who DID vote for Obama (especially those calling those who didn’t “racist”), voted for him BECAUSE of his race? Are the 97% of the black voters who voted for Obama racist as well?

The lack of logic from these media mouthpieces is astounding. I think if they actually stopped and thought about what they were saying, they’d realize this.

ESPN is very liberal. I won’t watch Dana (f* Jesus) Jacobsen. But I will watch gameday. Corso and Herbstreit offset Fowler, who is just a talking head.

Stop watching - turn it off and send a letter to ESPN. ESPN where Olberman got his start.

The Libs and MSM know Americans care more about ball games then the Constitution. Same thing is true in England with football (soccer). The masses are sheep.

Seems like the bedbugs have infested all the sports programs.

Am sick of it as sports was the one place to happily escape the knee padded media.

Back to House and Garden.

Had to laugh tho, sort of listening while working on a project and there was What Not To Wear telling a gal the last time she saw a dress like that was on Madeline Albright.

Hubby and I nearly choked laughing. We both asked the other........did we just hear what we thought we heard.

Keith Olbermann was the foot in the door, the left won’t be satisfied until they have a monopoly on all public discourse, entertainment, etc, and they re getting there. The right, as usual, was glib and nonchalant about it, and now we’re getting shut out. Talk radio is our only stronghold, and the left has a plan to overturn that, too, even though it’s only preaching to the choir and influences no one in the greater public. The left is nothing if not thorough.

It’s the other way around “Chris Fowler” you IDIOT!!! 97% of blacks voted for Obama, doesn’t that make them racists?

If 11% of the country are black then it was the WHITE vote that got him in you moron. My gosh, now I’ll have to add ESPN to my “don’t watch” list!!! The Weather channel, ESPN, Nickelodeon...WTF!!!

Unfortunately, I was watching What Not to Wear Friday night and they made the comment to a women that some of her clothes looked like Sarah Palin’s weekend wear. I really wish they would keep politics out of the show, it’s the reason I watch it. No politics.

I hope my new mixed drink recipe is not racist:

The Obama

2 oz. Brandy (for his dark ancestors)
2 oz. Kahlua (he was raised in Hawaii)
4 oz. vanilla ice cream (for his white ancestors)

Put in a blender for a couple of minutes, pour and enjoy!

I've been a steady subsciber to tThe Sporting News for over 10 years, and I think I'm letting my sub lapse when it's up. It's gotten even worse - the latest makeover made it the poor man's ESPN The Magazine. I really miss the old TSN, especially Caught On the Fly!

As far as I'm concerned, anyone who automatically assumes anyone who didn't vote for Obama is a racist is a racist themselves. Honestly, the only reason they could possibly conceive that someone might not vote for Obama is his skin color? If so, then it proves liberals are racists because they are myopically focused on something as superficial as skin color.

Just tried that.. very good combination, but the name is an insult to the drink... I prefer to call it (in honor of the song by Tay Zonday) Chocolate Rain... very good with Schwan’s French Vanilla Ice cream too..

We need to shut them out of our homes and our lives. Cancel the darn cable television. Save the money for something else more worthwhile. If/when the McCain voters boycott the media this way, you'll see change....money talks.

Mr. Keyes is also an “authentic” black American, meaning he is descended from American slaves. He is not some product of a foreign father and ex-pat Commie mother.
