ESPN isn’t really a sports channel anymore, according to MRC’s Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor.

ESPN has “shifted from sports to become the Extra Stupid Progressive Network,” Gainor said. He told Intelligence Report anchor Trish Regan that the sports network “does not live in the real world.”

 

It’s the creme de la creme of the famous activist dream. To run for public office (and theoretically, to win) would give any budding wannabe a certain amount of public validation. So it should come as no surprise that actress Shailene Woodley told the New York Times that she wouldn’t “rule out” the thought of “maybe I’ll run for Congress in a couple of years.”


Whenever President Trump says anything, you can bet that somewhere, some #resisting celebrity is screaming. So it should come as no surprise that some of the bigger names in Hollywood threw an extensive collective temper tantrum to their millions of followers on Twitter and Instagram, directed at Trump and Trump voters.

 

Perhaps the writers at The Bold Type have been reading the many stories posted here on Newsbusters about their extreme leftist slant and inappropriate material for teens and are feeling guilty for their typical, liberal Hollywood ways. Because Tuesday, August 22’s episode, “The End of the Beginning” took a shocking turn for the better by introducing a likeable, black, male conservative character. Well, the likeable part lasted for about five seconds.


From the "Hello, darkness, my old friend ... I've come to talk with you again" files:

ESPN has drop-kicked one of its college football broadcasters from the Virginia vs. William & Mary game, on Sept. 2, for no reason other than his name is "Robert Lee." This is no joke. ESPN really is that sensitive and that PC. That childish, too, for that matter.


Michael Bennett of the Seattle Seahawks recently called on Whites in the NFL to support Blacks in their protests against racism. The initial response of Whites has fallen far short of what a Marxist university professor considers acceptable and gives him cause to make a case for excessive white guilt. Furman University Professor of Education P.L. Thomas pushed the white guilt angle in a Huffington Post diatribe titled "Progressive, White Athletes Must Learn How To Stand In Solidarity."


President Trump said a lot of things in the wake of the Charlottesville violence, many of them unhelpful. But he got one big thing unequivocally correct when he said of the Maoist statue topplers: “So, this week it’s Robert E. Lee, I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder,” Trump asked, “is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”


The term “genocide” conjures images of World War II concentration camps, Soviet Gulags, gulags, the violence and rioting in 1994 Rwanda or the ISIS purging of Syrian and Iraqi Christians. But Salon contributors Max Pensky and Nadia Rubaii believe “genocidal violence can happen in the U.S. It has happened.” So what should individuals do? Look to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) for guidance, of course!

 


Let’s offer some congratulations to AMC’s Preacher for giving me the fastest, most efficient subject for an article yet. The latest episode featured a subject so embarrassingly crass that I’m shocked I got through the entire episode without slamming my head against a wall. It only takes three simple words: Jesus having sex.


Joss Whedon is a feminist. The director is a paragon of exquisitely progressive feminist sensibilities. He’s a right-thinking social justice warrior who values women as human beings, who believes in pay equality and probably likes to have a good cry.

That’s according to his fawning fans in the media, and Whedon himself, of course. To hear them tell it, the only thing that stands between Whedon and total feminist perfection is biology (and a sense of humor). Surprise! His ex-wife tells of a very different Joss Whedon.

 


Just when you thought the media couldn’t get any more profane or irreverent in bashing the patriotic, it got worse. Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story trailer was just released on August 21 on Twitter, and it’s horrific. As promised, the new season, to be aired on FX, called “Cult,” addressed the political tensions between Trump and Hillary. The preview showed clowns putting on masks made in the likeness of Trump and Clinton, with Clinton wagging her finger at the screen. But of course, the anti-patriotic America-hating climax of it all was the blood that was poured profusely on the American flag.


Its funny how the media will never actually practice what they preach. Consider the minimum wage argument. The liberal media has repeatedly endorsed raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour or more. However, in the case of the Huffington Post, at least, theory doesn’t apply to reality.
