Does the left’s insanity know no end? Answer – no, and here’s more proof. If it weren’t so pitiful and harmful, it would laugh out loud funny. It’s true what Rush Limbaugh has been repeating all these years. The main stream sports media are even more leftist than their political counterparts. And no where is it more evident that at ESPN.
from the Blaze:
ESPN removed an Asian-American broadcaster named Robert Lee from a University of Virginia football game to avoid controversy after the Charlottesville protests over a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
The liberal angst over anything even tangentially associated with the Confederate States of America has reached an all-time high, as ESPN decided to replace Lee on the broadcast “simply because of the coincidence of his name.”
As we all know, Robert E. Lee was a famous Confederate general. Lee’s life, as well as other Confederate figures have been commemorated with statues all over the southern United States, including in Charlottesville, Virginia. A statue of Lee was at the center of the Unite the Right white nationalist protests, which erupted into violence and resulted in a woman’s death.
Before today, it’s likely that relatively few people knew of ESPN’s Robert Lee before this incident. Lee (who has no relation to General Lee, as it apparently must be stated) started working at ESPN in 2016.
