How this lady isn't gone is beyond me, when they remove a guy from his role/position simply because his last name was LEE...

But this Jemele Hill ESPN reporter made extremely racist comments directed at the POTUS, with ZERO room for interpretation:

Yeah I have no idea. All ESPN has done so far is to issue an apology.

Did ESPN do enough to address Jemele Hill's Trump tweets? (poll) | syracuse.com

Yet she hasn't issued her own apology nor has she removed her statements.

So her "apology" is bullshit.

Is calling Trump a "white supremacist" racist in and of itself? I don't agree that he is, but I also don't think it's racism calling him one. Is calling Obama a Muslim racist? No, it's just ignorant, IMO.

From those three tweets, the only racist thing I see (which others may disagree with) was "And if he were not white, he never would have been elected"

Huh? If you used a derogatory word or phrase to describe anyone, minority or disliked group etc, wouldn't that be considered inflammatory and regarded as an anti-something slur.

Pretty tough position to take defending these comments coming from an ESPN sports caster after the precedents they've already set (again with Lee for one and firing Schilling).

this is the biggest part, whether someone agrees or disagrees with it being racist, they set the precedent already...

Yeah, not even touching on the ESPN part. They have already shown their true colors over the years. I don't find their actions the least bit surprising. They are on NFL levels of despicable actions.

I guess I don't see "white supremacist" as being a racist or derogatory term. I see it the same as BLM, Black Panther, Nazi, KKK. The group itself may be based on racist actions/beliefs, but calling someone a part of that group is not in and of itself racist, intentionally using it to describe someone, isn't racist IMO, it's just ignorant.

Maybe I see it differently? I'm not saying I'm right, just stating how I see it

The government is not "broken". It's working exactly how an overgrown government does. Crippling taxes, endless laws, and a mountain of beuracracy.


I'm more of an anarcho-capitalist or more likely classical liberal the older I get i.e.; get as much gov the fuck out of my life as possible.

Oh, and if it hasn't been posted, the Supreme Court over ruled the 9th district and upholds Trumps ban. Called it months ago.

Supreme Court blocks new refugees under Trump travel ban - LA Times

Where's @GLADIATOR? I don't remember our $20 bet exactly, but I think it hinged on a SC decision either upholding or striking this down, did it not?

I understand what you're getting at, the freedom of speech angle. I'd even tend to agree with you.... but the string of tweets considered as a whole and the punchline being "if he wasn't white" puts the icing on the racist-statement cake.

Some more Hildabeast comedy gold...

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/hillary-cl...opstories.html

Quote:
She specifically criticized Trump’s handling of the threat from and rising tensions with North Korea, saying that it is “a very serious issue” and that the U.S. needs to be working with other countries in the region, such as South Korea, Japan and China.

“It doesn’t help for the president on Twitter to insult South Korea ... That’s not useful,” she said.
Now maybe I don't remember DJT tweeting insults to South Korea, but I think he's been pretty serious about drawing a line in the sand with fat boi over there, he's been supporting and including our allies, and trying to force China to step up to the plate and do their part. Certainly it's much more than anything she would be doing in the same situation. Heck, she'd probably be funneling millions of dollars to them, similar to the great deal with Iran.

She truly is out in left field and truly DOESN'T get why she lost the election.

And not shocking at all the Supreme Court upheld the refugee ban. Left leaning activists judges were the ones that held it up. Any court of reason knows the president has the power to implement a ban like that...

Meh, no fucks given about the ESPN stuff she should be able to say what she wants if she's not impacting her job. Now then, where they suspended a guy over saying ESPN was too far down the politics rabbit hole I do take offense to that. The Hypocrisy alone is extremely tangible. The idea of depending on mob rule and corporations for moral guidance is fucking absurd.

Also, ESPN is fucking stupid for taking on politics. ***NO ONE*** of any party alignment wants their escapism saturated with the same politics that everything else is. This is a big reason why they have been tanking as of late IMO among other reasons. That's like trying to get some sexy time and one's spouse talking about house work. Major boner killer.

Bernie Sanders announced his single payer plan today with around 15 Democrats signing onto his plan. They're moving farther left on the issue, we'll see how many of them retain their jobs if their voters don't agree with them

I have been staying out of this far right wing thread because I am a snowflake.

Our bet was on the first EO. The SC ruled on Refugee Ban EO 2.0 or 3.0 Technically, you owe me $20. You didn't pay up because EO 1.0 never made it to the SC. That's how unconstitutional it was and had to be rewritten by someone that wasn't using crayons. You kinda squirmed outa the bet.....that's how the 1% stay 1%.

For the record, I am not against a ban. It just has to follow our constitutional law. Targeting a country is different from targeting a religion.

And since I am here...plenty of TV and Radio personalities are harsh on Trump on Twitter. I am under the impression that as long they don 't say it on TV, they are fine. Depends on their contract which prolly addresses social media activity. Do you remember why Da Coach Mike Ditka was fired from his cushy analyst TV gig? He called Obama 'The worst president ever" on TV. The network said it was in his contract that he couldn't get political on air. He did. He got shit canned.

See ya...
