ESPN Pulls Asian Announcer Named Robert Lee From Calling UVA Football Because They Think It Will Offend People Who Think He’s A Civil War General

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen social justice warriors do. And they do ridiculous things for living. And by SJWs I mean MSESPN. Just read this:
ESPN broadcaster Robert Lee will not work Virginia’s season opener because of recent violence in Charlottesville sparked by the decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. A spokeswoman for ESPN says Lee has been moved to Youngstown State’s game at Pittsburgh on the ACC Network on Sept. 2. The network says the decision was made “as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name.”
Plans to remove a statue of Lee led to a protest in Charlottesville earlier this month that attracted what is believed to be the largest group of white nationalists to come together in a decade. Violent clashes erupted between a large gathering of white nationalists and hundreds of counter protesters. ESPN says the decision to put Lee on another game was made “collectively.” It also says it’s “a shame that this is even a topic of conversation.”

I thought this was satire at first. But with ESPN anything is possible. After all, they’ve given a courage award to a 65 year old millionaire in drag. And in their infinite wisdom they decided that people watching the UVA season opener wouldn’t be able to differentiate between a confederate general who died 147 years ago, and an Asian guy who does color commentary for football.
This is how stupid they think their viewers are. They are worried that they will turn on the television and think that the ghost of Robert E. Lee descended from the ashes, just in time for kickoff. Of course they also convinced millions of morons to believe that the Patriots need to intentionally deflate footballs in order to beat crapbag teams like the Indianapolis Colts, so I can’t blame them for assuming that anyone who still watches ESPN is in fact this dumb.
Here’s the thing. If Robert Lee were black or hispanic, he’d probably be calling this game on Saturday. But Asian people for whatever reason are NOT a protected class of the social justice warriors. Probably because they’re so good at assimilating, making money, and disciplining their children. Robert Lee has Asian privilege, so it’s OK to fuck him over like this.
The funniest part about this is how ESPN is trying to pretend like this is out of their hands:
“It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation.”
Ummm….it’s not a topic of conversation. It’s a conversation that you started and ended with yourself. No one else would’ve thought twice about it. And even if they did make the connection that they shared the same name, no one would care or debate about it. Just MSESPN doing some pre-emptive race baiting when no such race baiting has even commenced yet.
The world is literally going insane. This is why we exist at Turtleboy Sports. This is why we fight. Because the mob wants you to buy into the madness, but we’re here to let you know that you are not alone. It’s OK to point and laugh at these people because they are a joke.

Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites
I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read through content from other authors
and use something from their websites.
Manchelle hit the nail right on the the head. The MSM portrays the white male as an idiot . From the Green Mountain Boys to the Dough Boys to the WWII G.I. The white American male is the one that won and saved democracy for the citizens of this country. I am not saying they did not have from woman and other races at the time but go to any military cemetery and add it up . Maybe some of the white woman that find Mandigo so appealing should ask an educated black woman why they don’t want to marry a black man.
ESPN has officially jumped the shark.
ESPN is a joke.
“Probably because they’re so good at assimilating, making money, and disciplining their children”.
This may happen in cities like Cambridge or Wellesley. Get out of those bubbles and tell me how well Asians assimilate.
An excellent case for a civil rights/discrimination lawsuit.
This has to be an “The Onion” article? Please. Yes? No? #mouthbreathers
Ummm, no. ESPN recently fired another announcer, Doug Adler, in the middle of the Australian Open after he described Venus Williams’s aggressive moves on the tennis court as “the guerilla effect”. The good news: Adler is now suing ESPN.
This is one of the funniest articles I’ve read in a long time, ahahahaha!!
They should just call him Oriental Robert Lee, duh!
I would like to take credit for the following comment, but I must yield to Herman Caine. “It’s too bad there wasn’t a General Joe Buck in the Confederacy.”
Lee should mess with everybody and change his name to Kim Jong Un.
ESPN is way too political which explains in part why they have been losing not only subscribers but viewers. Who wants to be lectured why all NFL Players, white and black should kneel during the national anthem for perceived injustices with no known demands. Imaginary wrong and imaginary remedy.
as somebody pointed out of Fox this morning the really crazy part is that six or seven people sat around in a room and collectively MADE this decision
Fox?? Oh, The Network that Clay Travis works for? TB highjacked this blog from him.
ESPN, ABC, NBC……etc. All spewing the same racist crap. Nearly every TV commercial now has the same theme; White Man is a doofus…cant do anything right. Enter black Jesus. Expert at everything saves the day. Whitey is marginalized, whitey’s wife wants Tyrell’s eggplant in her va jay jay. I pulled the cable out a long time ago.
Omg, you noticed this, too?!!?!?!?!? I swear I thought I was going kooky.
Excellent writing. Even caught the metaphor masked within the ESPN rhetorical psycho babble, “It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation.” The sedation of masses by lame stream media continues…
Don’t you get it? ESPN thinks Liberals are morons. They think it’s somehow a bad look for 30000 protesters to show up and throw bottles of urine and feces. Go figure!
Correction – ESPN KNOWS liberals are morons. Because ESPN is run by libs, they think the rest of us are as stupid as they are.
ESPN is right on in your case!
