ESPN’s Michael Wilbon on Fox News Host Laura Ingraham: “She Comes off Like a Bigot”

Published

on

In a video for ESPN’s newest social justice warrior-centric platform, “The Undefeated,” “Pardon the Interruption” co-host Michael Wilbon and senior NBA writer Marc J. Spears gave their reactions to the recent war of words between NBA superstar LeBron James and Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

During a monologue on her show last Thursday night, Ingraham told James to “shut up and dribble” after the 4-time MVP claimed that President Donald Trump does not “give a f*ck about the people.”

Spears began the hot takes by outright claiming Ingraham’s comments were “racist,” and went on to suggest Ingraham only spoke out against LeBron’s comments to “get some attention.”

Not to be outdone, Wilbon stated that Ingraham’s comments were “thinly veiled,” going so far as to claim the Fox News host “comes off like a bigot.”

“It’s interesting that all these uber-conservatives talk about what stable geniuses they are, but yet they sound like morons when they try and dictate to other people what they should talk about, what they’re intelligent enough to talk about. She comes off like a bigot.”

“I don’t know her,” Wilbon conceded. “I don’t know her work. I turn as frantically off of Fox as I can.”

After roughly 24-hours of backlash in which virtually every talking head in the mainstream media labeled her comments “racist,” Ingraham was back on her Fox News set Friday night boldly defending her comments.

“The left and the media attack dogs can dish it out, can’t they, but they can’t take it,” Ingraham said.

After once again playing the original clip of James, along with fellow NBA star Kevin Durant and ESPN social justice warrior Kari Champion, ridiculing Trump, Ingraham doubled down:

“I called those comments unintelligible, not to mention ungrammatical, last night, which is difficult to dispute. And the left erupted.”

“Almost all the stories accused me of ‘dog-whistle’ commentary and many claimed that my line that LeBron should ‘shut up and dribble’ was ‘racist,'” Ingraham said. “Uh, what?”

The Fox News host then pointed out the title of a book she had written some 15 years ago, “Shut Up & Sing,” going on to claim she’s “been using variants of that title to call out celebrities for 15 years, without regard for skin color, where you came from, what you do.”

Ingraham finally laid to rest any doubts about the intentions of her claim by playing various clips of her using the “shut up and ____” line with white actress Jamie Lee Curtis, white actor Mark Hamill, and white late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.

“So, I’m an equal opportunity critic when it comes to left-wing celebrities sounding off on topics of which they know precious little, and as you can see, race has nothing to do with it,” Ingraham concluded.

Brown University Cultural Leftists Demand Destruction of Classical Roman Emperor Statues on Campus

They hate western civilization.

Published

on

Left-wing racial ideologues at Brown University in Rhode Island are demanding that the school destroy two classical statues of iconic Roman emperors, claiming that the works of art represent “white supremacy.”

Amanda Brynn, Justin Han, Sam Kimball, Junaid Malik, Olivia Mayeda, and Kelley Tackett, six undergraduate students affiliated with “Decolonization at Brown,” are demanding that the school destroy two classical-style statues of Roman emperors Augustus Caesar and Marcus Aurelius.

They claim in a blog post that the statues “were brought to our campus with the goals of upholding the ideal of the ‘perfect’ white form, white civilization, white supremacy and colonialism — ideas that we believe are incompatible with Brown today.

This is not just about monuments. It is also about the kinds of people and histories that students at Brown today are taught to idealize.”

They’re demanding that the classical statues, which appear to be replicas of famous Renaissance and ancient art, be replaced with pieces created by “artists of color.”

Marcus Aurelius was Roman emperor in the 2nd century in an era of peace and prosperity for the ancient civilization, and is known for documenting the philosophy of stoicism in literature that has been studied for millennia.

Ironically, classical-style statues have been targeted for destruction on cultural grounds before. The Vandals, a Germanic tribe that warred with the Roman Empire in its era of decline, associated their name with property damage and barbaric behavior through their frequent destruction of cultural statues.

The stringent ideologues detest the glories of western civilization, and would destroy the cultural inheritance of the American legacy before it is passed to future generations. Their own liberal fanaticism will fade from history as an uncreative and empty religion, whereas the legacies of great men will endure.
