Monday was supposed to be a huge day for the network brass over at ESPN as they launched their new morning show, Get Up!, a multi-million dollar investment meant to stake the sports media company’s flag firmly in the world of the liberal media.
However, the ratings from Monday’s maiden episode of Get Up! were nothing to write home about.
They were absolutely atrocious.
According to ShowBuzzDaily.com, Get Up! was only able to garner roughly 283,000 total viewers despite debuting the morning after a Final Four weekend sports fans couldn’t stop talking about.
To put that in perspective, the Nickelodeon children’s show Peppa Pig garnered nearly three-times more viewers than ESPN’s newest flagship program.
Just a few weeks ago, word began to leak out that ESPN’s newest morning show wouldn’t be the most sports-centric show on the network, and would push the limits of “wokeness” ESPN viewers became accustomed to from the former SC6 edition of SportsCenter that has also recently been dubbed a failure.
“Still, “when players take a knee, then it deserves coverage and conversation,” notes Wolff, referring to NFL players’ national anthem protests. “If something political makes itself part of our world, we are dishonest and inauthentic if we don’t discuss it.”
Rose notes that he has “never been muzzled in any way” during his decade at ESPN, he says: “I appreciate the fact that I’m able to talk about more than what happened in last night’s NBA game. And I think fans appreciate that. When our president tweets about sports, now he’s fair game.”
Apparently, ESPN simply didn’t learn from the failed push towards the social justice warrior left by former network president John Skipper.
In fact, according to The Hollywood Reporter, ESPN was set to double-down on the idea of pushing more to the social justice warrior left with Get Up!, leasing 21,000-square-feet of studio and office space in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport and handing out roughly $15 MILLION worth of salaries to the show’s three hosts – $6.5 million for Mike Greenberg, $5 million for Michelle Beadle, and just $3 million for Jalen Rose.
Hilariously, the show’s first episode opened with the following “super hero trailer” designed to make light of the show’s “high expectations.”
ESPN is just the gift that keeps on giving.
Colin Kaepernick Posts Anti-American Video on July 4th, Calls Independence Day a ‘Celebration of White Supremacy’
Kaepernick hates the country that has given him so much.
Washed up former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick yet again showed his hatred of America on July 4th by making a social media post calling Independence Day a “celebration of white supremacy.”
Kaepernick posted a video featuring actor James Earl Jones reading Frederick Douglass’s historic speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July,” over a montage of Klansmen, lynchings, police brutality, and slaves. The overriding message is that America is inherently racist, and the nation must be destroyed. This is part of a broader leftist effort to demonize Independence Day as they believe no American should celebrate their nation’s history.
“Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of ‘independence’, while you enslaved our ancestors,” Kaepernick wrote in the post. “We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all.”

Kapernick has demonstrated that hating America and fomenting racial division can be very lucrative these days with most multinational corporations taking orders from China. He has made far more money than he ever could have as a football player becoming the poster child for black dominance.
Big League Politics has reported on how Nike threw piles of cash at Kaepernick after he got down on his knees to show his hatred of his country:
A former NFL quarterback has been selected as the face of Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign for its 30-year anniversary.
Colin Kaepernick Tweeted the first image from this year’s campaign Monday afternoon.
“Believe in something,” he said. “Even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt”
Kaepernick started the NFL’s National Anthem protest controversy by kneeling for the Anthem in 2016. Players who have joined in the protest say that it is about recognizing unfair treatment of minorities by police.
In August of the same year, Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in the same month, and has been jobless ever since.
But many NFL fans saw it as a sign of disrespect to the brave men and women who serve our nation each day. Fans launched a boycott of the league, which saw a ratings drop of about 10% in the 2017-2018 season.
Those same Americans are lashing out at the Nike brand.
Kaepernick could be considered a terrorist organizer now that the marxist Black Lives Matter mob is raising cities and targeting white people for violence.
