Oh begun. Is ESPN * attempting * to feed the conventional white complaint machine? Cenk Uygur, Michael Shure, and Nomiki Konst, hosts of The Young Turks, review. Tell us exactly what you believe in the remark area listed below.

" Robert Lee shed something in Virginia– as well as 152 years later on, one more Robert Lee did, too.

The living Robert Lee, an ESPN broadcaster, was drawn from calling the College of Virginia house opener against William and also Mary on Sept. 2 because he shares a name with the Confederate basic at the center of agitation in Charlottesville.

" We collectively decided with Robert to switch over video games as the awful occasions in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply due to the coincidence of his name," Derek Volner, an ESPN spokesperson, told The Washington Post in an emailed statement. "Because moment it really felt ideal to all events. It's an embarassment that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has actually come to be a problem."" *.

      Keep dreaming white supremacy is on the ropes and you dummies are going to suffer the most.

      This is silly, but “too far” is running people over with a car. Not a problem coming from the left.

      Yolo Sock um noo? The liberals think this is stupid. Espn did something dumb its not the fault of the left or the right

    • Posted by Sook Jin GOH, at Reply

      It’s just a coincidence that Lee is a common last name in Anglo-Saxon and East Asian community

    Completely ridiculous. This is how Trump won the election.

    • Posted by TheSonOfAGunFrom410, at Reply

      All Trump would’ve had to do was wait until a large group young leftists start attacking Bernie for beating a woman(Hillary) and being a old white man. Then Trump could just play the Bernie speech of him saying white people dont what what’s it’s like to be poor.

    • Posted by David Stewart 22, at Reply

      Christ, you people are petty. Sanders clearly misspoke. He meant that white people don’t know what it’s like to deal with the combination of factors he mentioned.

    Thanks TYT. Thanks Steve Shives. Thanks sjw’s.

      First of all, the word regressive doesn’t make any sense in this context. As someone else pointed out here, regressive doesn’t mean whatever you want it to mean. It doesn’t mean “bad” or “frustratingly petty.” Regressive means cultural relativism. It refers to those who deny that people in other cultures are entitled to human rights and equality before the law. Secondly, you’re wrong. Whatever you may think of the campaigns to remove Confederate statues, they are simply an effort to de-glorify the people who fought to protect the institution of slavery in this country. It doesn’t go any further than that. No one is trying to remove or “replace” white people. If you want to build a monument to Benjamin Franklin, Ronald Reagan or Dwight Eisenhower etc, that’s perfectly fine.

    Liberal hysteria strikes again, an Asian is punished over liberal white guilt lol

    • Posted by Gregory O'Donnell, at Reply

      PungiFungi Well, as long as we’re blaming people for things they didn’t do, let me give it a try. The left did not cause James Alex Fields jr to murder an innocent women..Nor they did create the atmosphere that necessitate it. The right may not support it, but this is the monster they created. This is called repercussion and consequence. Which the Right is responsible for. Of course, they would deny it. Like you are now.

      And I don’t upvote any of my comments. You apparently do, though. And I must say, upvoting your own comment makes you look desperate.
      And yes, of course I repeated your words. The fact that a hypocrite can anticipate when people will call him a hypocrite doesn’t make him any less of a hypocrite.
      Game.
      Set.
      MATCH.

    • Posted by Brendan Daniels, at Reply

      +Ultimate Despair Gamer Because ESPN has not suggested that they faced social media (or any other) pressure to make this decision. What you’re basically saying is that TYT bears some of the blame for anything petty that anyone anywhere does because they are vaguely perceived as vaguely sjw. This is nuts. I can’t think of a single instance when they supported anything like this.

    • Posted by Eric Kim, at Reply

      Many Asians are punished over liberal white guilt. It happens every time an Asian applies for college. liberalism is a mental defect.

    • Posted by BrendanWilliams, at Reply

      +Eric Kim Careful. You’re describing a perfectly mainstream and reasonable point of view as a “mental defect.” If anyone is wondering why political discourse is so dysfunctional, they need look no further. (By the way, Asians are usually the beneficiaries of diversity programs. It’s often whites who are disadvantaged.)

    Trumpanzees: notice how when stuff like this actually happens, the left finds it ridiculous?

      Yeah but libtards are like an anchor the left can’t get rid of. They keep dragging you down into the gutter of stupidity.

    The SJW’s have gone way too far. This is ridiculous.

    • Posted by BrendanWilliams, at Reply

      Who has gone too far? No one was calling for this. Some exec at ESPN made a dumb decision, and you guys are acting like it’s the end of civilization.

    • Posted by For Real, at Reply

      Mike Carter ESPN is a sports channel and couldn’t give two fucks about what side of the political spectrum you’re on.

      To those on the extreme right, everything is seen as biased against the right. Let me prove it: Do you think CNN has a leftwing bias?

    Only 4% of ESPN personalities voted for Trump…

    • Posted by ItsCC13x, at Reply

      Proof?

    • Posted by Snakeye808, at Reply

      I would find it believable that less than 4% of sports team owners have ever voted for a Democrat. After all, Republicans don’t make them pay any taxes 😛

      Mark Bradley as regressive as ESPN gas become, Im surprised it was that high

    • Posted by Steve Fallon, at Reply

      What does it say about you that you vote for a President based on what ESPN does? Like that’s really what’s most important to you?

    • Posted by Bryan Skarlet, at Reply

      +Steve Fallon I think they’re saying Trump was elected because a sports network had an over PC culture. Strange even for Trump-Nazis.

    • Posted by Honey Badger, at Reply

      ralphinator2 Yep, everyone who votes Republican is a bigot. Keep that message going. You lost in huge part because of it.

      Moron please white supremacy is on the ropes. That’s why you’ve been acting up so much. The power shift is coming and rich whites will be okay and loser poor whites like you will be cleaning black peoples homes.

    Congrats SJWs, feminists, and regressive liberals this is your fault

    • Posted by Snakeye808, at Reply

      Or it’s just a weird name coincidence and the guy would rather commentate another game. Not a big deal. You’re making it something that it’s not. However, the name wouldn’t be an issue if it weren’t for white supremacists and Trump supporters spewing hate and violence over Robert Lee, so they are obviously to blame.

    • Posted by NoneOfTheAbove, at Reply

      Oh wow, now conservatives think it’s the fault of women fighting for their rights? Sounds legit…….

  15. Posted by Twoofer Derper, at Reply

    Gosh, this is making the left look so tolerable.

    • Posted by Gregory O'Donnell, at Reply

      What does this have to do with the left? Show me one left-leaning organization who was calling for this to happen.

    • Posted by For Real, at Reply

      Twoofer Derper ESPN is a sports channel

    • Posted by Snakeye808, at Reply

      Yeah, conservatives would have forced this guy to commentate the game against his wishes, and whipped him mercilessly if he disobeyed their commands.

    • Posted by NoneOfTheAbove, at Reply

      “The Left” is calling this out. Meanwhile conservatives are still being apologist to right-wing murderous terrorists.

      Franky L yeah, outdo stupid people with someone even stupider. Real smart.

    • Posted by Gregory O'Donnell, at Reply

      No it isn’t. There is no evidence that people who voted for Trump would’ve voted for Clinton if it weren’t for political correctness. Even if you can provide anecdotes, you still have to show that it affected the outcome in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Florida, and Pennsylvania. You won’t be able to … because there’s no evidence to suggest it happened. We know exactly why Trump won: low turnout, Comey letter, and an awful opponent. Not a mystery.

    • Posted by ralphinator2, at Reply

      Because RETARDS voted to give themselves a $10,000 annual pay cut?

    • Posted by Snakeye808, at Reply

      If Robert Lee had announced this game, it would have spelled the end for Trump then right?

      Hell yeah! I’m glad someone get’s it. Let’s destroy the country and make ourselves worse off … because a random company made a stupid decision that had nothing to do with the left or political correctness. Trump 2020, baby! That’ll show the left. Maybe next time ESPN will think twice before making decisions that don’t affect anyone or anything.
