Hysteria Days

Outkick brings us the news that we are definitely in the midst of full blown national hysteria:

“We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.”

In a story that seems made for The Onion, but is actually true, according to multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN MSESPN decided to pull an Asian college football announcer named Robert Lee off the William and Mary at University of Virginia college football game because they were concerned that having an ASIAN FOOTBALL ANNOUNCER NAMED ROBERT LEE would be offensive to some viewers.

Did I mention that Robert Lee is Asian?

Is this even real life anymore? This might even be worse than MSESPN apologizing for the fantasy football slave draft a couple of weeks ago.

To avoid offending left wing idiots Robert Lee, the Asian college football announcer, not the Confederate General who died in 1870 and shares a name with him, was switched to the Youngstown State at Pittsburgh game and Dave Weekley will now call the William and Mary at University of Virginia game.

Go here to read the rest.  I think I will now have greater insight into the atmosphere surrounding the Salem Witch Trials.

Not the former commander of the Army of Northern Virginia who died in 1870.

  1. The real play callers at Charlottesville were the MSM–and they’re lovin’ every minute of it. Every day is dirty-up Trump day.

  2. Since the Trump/Russian conspiracy is a massive failure, the yellowstream media had to find something else to blame on Trump…and they did. It is reminiscent of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans in 2005. The incompetent twits occupying the offices of Louisiana Governor and New Orleans Mayor escaped blame. It was Bush’s fault, all of it.

    This propaganda won’t fly with Trump’s base.

  3. Worthwhile article.

    Feingold’s column, along with countless tweets and news commentary from left-wing pundits, underscores what some of us have been saying all along about Charlottesville and the Confederate statue controversy: this is not about neo-Nazis, or the Civil War, or the rise of white nationalism in American politics.

    This is about progressives demonizing their political opponents. Having failed to persuade American voters to support their policies and elect their candidates, Democrats are now resorting to ad hominem attacks. Don’t agree with Feingold and other Democrats about immigration reform or voter ID laws? Well, that’s because you’re racist. “The white supremacist chant of, ‘you will not replace us,’ could easily and accurately be the slogan for these Republican politicians,” Feingold writes. “Their policies will achieve the same racial outcome as Jim Crow – the disenfranchisement and marginalization of people of color.”

    Hmm… I think I see why the Hysteria started and is being fueled.
