ESPN anchor blasts Trump as ‘white supremacist’

This woman is an anchor on ESPN. A lead commentator. Now that they've fired all the white men and non-far left goose-steppers this is what they are. How much longer before ESPN goes under?

Jemele Hill is the newest face of ESPN controversy.

The “SportsCenter” co-host went on a Twitter rant against President Trump that included calling him a “white supremacist” — forcing the network to issue a statement Tuesday denouncing the comments.

“Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime,” Hill tweeted Monday night.

“His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period,” she said. “He is unqualified and unfit to be president. He is not a leader. And if he were not white, he never would have been elected.”


For a network that detractors believe leans liberal, especially through its on-screen personalities, Hill’s comments fit that narrative.

Her incendiary tweets were part of a nearly 15-minute rant, which she unleashed around 8 p.m.

“Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists,” she said at the start of her tirade.

“The height of white privilege is being able to ignore his white supremacy, because it’s of no threat to you,” Hill added. “Well, it’s a threat to me.”


The black 41-year-old — who co-hosts the 6 p.m. broadcast of SportsCenter, also known as “The Six” — wound up firing off more than a dozen tweets criticizing the president.

The diatribe began in response to a news story about singer Kid Rock, who is toying with a Senate run next year. The article accused the media of calling the Confederate flag-toting musician a racist, despite his previous claims that he “[loves] black people.”

Hill, an 11-year ESPN veteran, sarcastically denounced Kid Rock’s reasoning in several tweets, arguing he can’t use a flag that “unquestionably stands for dehumanizing black people” and call himself a racial sympathizer. Her criticism of him eventually turned into the angry comments about Trump.

“Donald Trump is a bigot. Glad you could live with voting for him. I couldn’t, because I cared about more than just myself,” Hill seethed.

“I hate a lot of things but not enough to jeopardize my fellow citizens with an unfit, bigoted, incompetent moron. But hey, that’s just me.”


Hill’s statements caused an uproar on social media, prompting ESPN to issue its statement Tuesday — distancing themselves from the sports anchor.

“The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN,” the network said. “We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”

ESPN has been involved in plenty of politically correct controversies, including the removal of a college football announcer named Robert Lee.

The network flat-out admitted to moving the play-by-play man in an effort to avoid social media outrage.

Last April, former All-Star pitcher-turned-baseball analyst Curt Schilling was fired for sharing an insensitive Facebook post about the North Carolina transgender bathroom law.

“LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die,” the post said.

It was accompanied by an image of an overweight man donning a wig and women’s clothing, along with a low-cut shirt exposing his breasts.

“A man is a man no matter what they call themselves,” Schilling wrote in the description. “I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”

In response, ESPN issued a similar statement to the one they released for Hill — only this time, they chose to fire Schilling.

“ESPN is an inclusive company,” the network said. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”

Unlike Schilling, it appears that Hill will be allowed to keep her job — leading many to call ESPN out for what they believe is a massive double standard.

“ESPN, Curt Schilling is fired 4 questioning Transgender Bathrooms but nothing happens 2 Jemele Hill when she calls Trump a WhiteSupremacist?” wrote one upset Twitter user.

“Complete BS, You fired Curt Schilling for political opinions,” another said.

Pete Packowski added, “it’s a f–king disgrace that jemele hill is still employed by espn, while curt schilling lost his job.”

Had an inservice from an AA guy. Great speaker. He even claimed that anytime someone says Diversity it means Black.

I like the tweet because it says ESPN stop pushing your agenda.

All the "white supremacy" baloney is based on what they hear on the left wing democrat outlets (MSNBC, CNN, ESPN, etc....) It's not based on anything Trump has actually said, you know, since he's never said anything to indicate "white supremacy".

It only works for their side when they add or ignore key words.

Trump says he's against illegal immigration and it's proclaimed that he said he's against immigration. Just ignore the word "illegal".

Trump says he's against radical Islamic terrorists and it's reported he said he's against Muslims. Just ignore the radical terrorists part. Doesn't fit their lie.

Trump says that there have been criminals who have committed rape and murder after illegally crossing the border (supported by evidence) and it's decided that he said Mexicans are rapists. Twisting to support their lies.

Trump said both sides did stuff wrong in Charlottesville (and both sides DID do stuff wrong) and he's labeled a white supremacists. More nonsense.

People are driven by their hatred of their side losing, to not being able to fulfill the Alinsky goals, that they will resort to pretending that these various lies have some basis in truth. Americans know better. We're paying attention to the actual words not MSNBC and the like.

I hear you

ESPN is the same network that gave a sports award to a guy because he decided to cross dress and get breast implants. The notion that they are avoiding politics is absurd. They're all in on the leftist politics, and avoiding rightist politics. Everyone knows it, so the question is why Dan decided to lie about it.

My god, imagine the crying from the right if his guy went around saying something like the president wasn't born in the U.S. long after evidence has been supplied. You would never tolerate such blatant pandering and lies.

I've been seeing this talking point appear a lot lately.

It's main failure is *you* talking for white supremacists. For the record, I assume you are not a white supremacist. Trump supports are racists, bigots, and some, like you, I assume are good people.

Actual white supremacists say things like this:

Quote:
"We are determined to take our country back," David Duke said Saturday. "We are going to fulfill the promise of Donald Trump. That's what we believe in. That's why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he's going to take our country back."
Quote:
William Johnson, a white nationalist, told NBC News' Jacob Soboroff on Wednesday he was thrilled by what Trump said.

"I think that America needs to take a different direction," Johnson said. "We have a festering racial problem that's only going to get worse. I think the only solution is separation ... and Donald Trump is going to, I think, help us overcome the racial divide."

He added that he felt Trump is emboldening Americans “to be proud of their heritage — whether it is white, whether it is Confederacy, whatever it is.”
I, honestly, don't understand the obsession of the right wing on this board to defend Trump.

You have the adults in your party recognizing that there is no "both sides" when one side is a white nationalist/Nazi planned event where they promoted genocide, started violence, and killed someone. You have the adults in the Party recognizing you can't just ignore what actual white supremacists are saying about Trump and that Trump needs to strongly address and it.

But here on CP, it seems almost all of you would rather side with Trump than Romney or Kasich .

Pure speculation on my part but my guess is he's the guy that hammers racism (and to a much lesser extent other issues) and he said on air he was getting inundated with tweets asking him about it. I'd guess he didn't want to touch it so he sent a note to a suit asking for the company line so he wouldn't catch hell about it. Given what you posted it smells like toeing the company line.

Which makes some sense. The narrative they push when things are civil "look how progressive we are". When one of the morons goes batshit thy don't want anything to do with it.

Trumps '07 speech which @DailyCaller just released not only shows that Trump is a racist but also how the press always covers for him.
