The iconic sports network ESPN finds itself in a serious bind. After embracing woke identity politics while Obama was President and doubling down with constant ‘Orange Man Bad’ coverage after Trump replaced him, the network is attempting to put the genie back in the bottle and ignore politics altogether.
The only problem is their analysts, many of whom are social justice warriors who have been immersed in the fake news ecosystem for their entire careers, are not going along with the program despite the fact that it is what their fans want.
The network “says its research finds that fans, regardless of political affiliation, do not want to hear about politics on ESPN.” https://t.co/VAxZh6mTrY

ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro is trying to undo the damage that was done largely before he came into power 17 months ago, but is running into roadblocks.
“I’ve had this discussion internally with hundreds of our employees that sports is about uniting and ESPN needs to unite people around sports,” Pitaro said to the Washington Post. “That’s our role, or one of our roles.”
“We have to understand we’re here to serve sports fans,” Pitaro added. “All sports fans.”
ESPN host Dan Le Betard, who wrote for the Miami Herald from 1990-2016, is openly defying the orders from his boss as he feels that the sports network should be a vehicle for his leftist political beliefs.
“We here at ESPN don’t have the stomach for the fight. We don’t talk about what is happening unless there is some sort of weak, cowardly sports angle that we can run it through,” said Le Betard, who clearly believes every facet of modern life should be relentlessly politicized.
Pitaro was put in charge after a turbulent 2017 that saw previous president John Skinner resign after an alleged case of extortion, and the network become a political football for the White House after former host Jemele Hill called Trump a white supremacist on her Twitter account. Pitaro was appointed as a fixer of sorts to rid the institution of its obvious political bias.
However, Pitaro is buckling under the pressure. Le Batard will remain on the air despite his outburst and violation of protocol. With next year’s presidential election right around the corner, other leftists on staff know there will be no consequences for their actions.
Hill gloated in The Atlantic over ESPN’s troubles in ending its biased and unpopular political coverage in the age of Trump.
“A no-politics-unless-it’s-sports-related policy seems especially naive and tricky to navigate when the president of the United States not only makes overtly racist comments, but also lays into women’s-soccer players, NBA owners, and other sports figures who disagree with him,” Hill wrote.
“ESPN’s policy also backs the network itself into a corner, and asks TV and radio commentators to do something impossible: ignore anything and everything happening outside the four corners of the playing field, no matter how much it offends their basic sense of humanity,” she added. “Not surprisingly, some commentators just aren’t able to abide by such a mandate.”
By adopting a leftist political slant to their sports reporting, ESPN has created a monster, and that monster may lay waste to the sports empire regardless of Pitaro’s best intentions.

Boosie BadAzz Goes H.A.M. on Dwayne Wade and His Trans Kid: ‘You Gone Too F**kin Far. That is a Male!’
Boosie is tellin’ it like it is.
Iconic rapper Boosie BadAzz, formally known as Lil Boosie, went hard on NBA star Dwayne Wade in an Instagram video today posted from a Planet Fitness gym.
Boosie called out Wade for promoting his transgender kid, who the NBA legend claims is a girl. Wade has gone on publicity junkets recently claiming that he accepts that his birth son is now a girl and urges other parents to harbor their child’s delusions even if it may put them in extreme danger.
“I gotta say something about this s**t, brah. Dwayne Wade, you gone too f**kin far, dog,” he said to start his spirited rant.
“That is a male, a 12-year-old, at 12 they don’t even know… they don’t even know what they next meal gonna be!” Boosie exclaimed.
Boosie was just getting warmed up from there as he continued to let loose on the former NBA Finals MVP who has been seduced and indoctrinated by the LGBT agenda.
He added: “He might meet a woman, anything, at 16, and fall in love with her, but his d*ck be gone, how he gonna.. like, bruh, you going too far, dog. Don’t cut his d*ck off, bruh. Like, bruh. For real. If he gonna be gay, let him be gay, but don’t cut his d*ck off, bruh.”
“Don’t cut his f**kin d*ck off, Dwayne Wade, bruh. You f**kin trippin, dog. You trippin, dog,” Boosie said to capstone his traditionalist appeal to Wade.
Big League Politics has reported on Wade’s disgraceful media campaign to defend his 12-year-old boy’s transition:
Former NBA star Dwayne Wade has emerged as the spokesman for LGBT insanity since retiring from the NBA in 2019, as his son has decided to become a girl.
The LGBT agenda has caused his 12-year-old son Zion to develop a case of gender confusion. He is now calling himself “Zaya” and claiming to be a girl trapped in a boy’s body.
Wade is harboring his pre-teen son’s feelings, and going on a nationwide tour to urge other parents to neglect their duties as parents. He spoke with lesbian talk show host Ellen Degeneres to celebrate his son’s transgenderism this week.
“First of all, I think it’s what every parent should be, is what you’re being right now, which is unconditionally loving your child and supporting your child in whoever they are,” DeGeneres told Wade.
“Once Zaya… originally born Zion as a boy – came home and said, ‘Hey, so I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I’m ready to live my truth, and I want to be referenced as ‘she’ and ‘her.’ I would love for you guys to call me Zaya,’ ” Wade said.
“So internally, now it’s our job to go out and get information, to reach out to every relationship that we have, and we’re just trying to figure out as much information as we can to make sure we give our child the best opportunity to be her best self,” he added.
So far, Boosie is one of the few with the courage to speak out against the transgender plague that is sweeping through the African-American community. Perhaps his bold words will inspire others to take a stand.
