Some in Sports Media Blame Clay Travis for the Capitol Riots
What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an embarrassing disgrace. Dare I say, deplorable. It also proved to be pointless. Joe Biden has been certified as president-elect. Donald Trump has "conceded" the election, or at least said there will be a peaceful transfer of power. There's not much more I have to say about it than that. Other there, there may be an unfiltered version of this post somewhere on this site. Less Facebook friendly, more Facebook alternative friendly. See if you can parley those clues into where to find it.
I know there are more serious issues being discussed by more serious people. But these tweets from sports reporters caught my attention. Plus, politically I align myself with Clay Travis. We both love boobs and the First Amendment.
Travis, as someone who voted for Donald Trump, spoke out about what happened. He also attempted to explain how he felt we got here.
I voted for Trump. He lost. Well past time to move on. Violence is never the answer, no matter your politics. Will discuss on @outkick live in a half hour.

Rational. Well thought out. Concise. Also, according to some of Travis' sports colleagues, everything that happened on Wednesday was his fault.
Hey @ClayTravis your words and behavior helped enable the bullshit of today.
Glad to see this minor concession from you but you should be much more accountable than this! https://t.co/5p6JqMbNk5

I assume this means an end to calling people “coronabros," attacking media members and athletes for being “woke," criticizing sports networks for being too political and sucking up to politicians https://t.co/DkhaCneB9V

That was fast. We've seen similar things happen before. Anytime anything happens that can remotely be tied to "our side," everyone on the right is to blame. Every snarky tweet. Every criticism on a podcast. It's why so many on the right who disagreed with/flat out hated Trump didn't speak up. They knew they'd be blamed/attacked anyway. John Kasich spoke out. The result was AOC saying he couldn't sit with them.
Yesterday, it started with blame Donald Trump. Then it went to blame Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley. Then, anyone who raised what they felt were legitimate concerns on the ballot count. Now? A sports reporter who disagrees with the media narrative on the coronavirus and anyone who disagrees with wokeness. It's been less than 24 hours. The message appears to be if you disagree with the left about anything, you are to blame for everything. So just shut up about everything.
This is something I believe we need to watch out for and push back on when needed. Especially now that Democrats have full control of the government and both Big Tech and the media are...you know.
