The S in ESPN stands more for SJW than sports lately. The “S” can also stand for an expletive relating to feces. Or we could just call it “stool.” Which is why many in the audience use the button which stands for “Shut this crap off” (see ESPN Runs Feminist Poem Tribute to… A Fugitive Cop Killer and Liberals at ESPN: Native Americans Too Dumb to Know ‘Redskins’ is Offensive).
In typical ESPN SJW fashion, here’s a host saying that standing for the National Anthem is “injecting politics” into sports.
“You do not have to stand for the national anthem, and even if it was a rule that you did, is that Colin Kaepernick injecting politics into the NFL? No, that’s the NFL injecting politics.”
Ok, first things first…
Second, the NFL doesn’t make people stand for the National Anthem. Do they encourage it? Of course. If you want to be a douchelord and sit, kneel, or disrespect the country during it, that’s your choice as a free American. Just like it’s my choice as a free American to call you a douchelord.
You really have to wonder how clueless some leftists are. Like, Max Kellerman actually thought “Hey, if I call standing for the National Anthem ‘injecting politics,’ people will totally listen to my point!”
No, we won’t. We’re just going to mock you for it. Because interjecting politics into sports is executed by continuing to talk about standing or not standing for the anthem instead of focusing on the game of football. How it’s played. Scores. Trades. Stats. You know, sports stuff.
If ESPN wants to help Kaepernick, or any one else who’s all hot and bothered about “interjecting politics” in sports, then here’s a revolutionary idea: just cover the sports. As in the performance of the athletes. The playing of the game. Scores. Trades. Stats. You know, sports stuff. Wait… have I already said that?
