The sports blog Deadspin, which is owned by G/O Media, is falling to pieces after an internal memo from management told writers to “stick to sports” due to a massive fan backlash against political content.
The entitled social justice warrior staffers have staged a revolt, with many quitting their positions rather than performing the jobs they were hired to do.
Hi! I’ve just been fired from Deadspin for not sticking to sports.

The Gizmodo Media Group union, which is apart of the Writers Guild of America East that unionized Deadspin writers last year, issued a message of solidarity to all of the writers taking a stand against doing their jobs.
“’Stick to sports’ is and always has been a euphemism for don’t speak truth to power,” they wrote, calling out G/O Media CEO Jim Spanfeller in particular for the policy.
“In addition to being bad business, Spanfeller’s actions are morally reprehensible,” the union claimed.

However, G/O Media claims that the changes they are making are in fact good for business. They are responding to market demand at a time when demand for “woke” sports media is in the toilet.
“In September, unsurprisingly, 24 of the top 25 stories on Deadspin were sports-related while non-sports content accounted for less than 1 percent of the page views on the site,” a spokesman for G/O Media said.
The spokesman added that “our writers have a free hand to cover the intersection of sports and politics, sports and pop culture, sports and business, or, frankly, just about any topic even tangentially related to sports.”
ESPN has made similar editorial changes in recent months, which has sent their SJW personalities into a tizzy as a result:
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…
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.
Barstool Sports, a blog that has gained a large following by standing in opposition to “woke” left-wing culture, issued a mocking challenge to Deadspin employees.
“Anyway as an olive branch to my good friends at Deadspin and in a sign of solidarity with the Deadspin Union I will publish any blog trashing Deadspin written by Deadspin employees that is getting deleted by the Deadspin owners… How gallant is that?” Barstool president Dave Portnoy said.
The former Deadpool employees may be wise to learn to code, as the woke media industry dries up as consumers grow weary with the nauseating agenda.
Black Lives Matter Terrorists Show Up to Louisiana Courthouse with Guns to Menace Pro-Statue Protesters
This was a show of force by a domestic terror group.
A group of Black Lives Matter (BLM) terrorists showed up at the Caddo Parish courthouse in Shreveport, La. on Tuesday to menace protesters who oppose the destruction of historical monuments.
The so-called Sleep Is For The Rich Gun Club demonstrated at the courthouse while holding weapons in an extremely thuggish fashion to intimidate their opposition. Police had a presence around the courthouse to make sure that they did not go on a rampage.
Nicki Daniels, Jr., the leader of the glorified terror cell, made his ignorance abundantly clear by giving an astoundingly low IQ statement to the media.
“Why are we still having to come out here to fight over a monument that, for people that fought against our country, bro?” Daniels said. “Y’all don’t understand the hypocrisy in that? And then you want to ask why we’re out here protecting these people? It’s about good versus evil, that’s why.”
Pastor Linus Mayes, who organizes the group Community Congress for Systemic Justice, made excuses for the terrorists who waved guns around at the protest. He demonstrated how so-called “peaceful” BLM protesters run cover for the rioters who commit mayhem in the streets.
“We don’t support violence. We’re against anybody committing violence,” Mayes said. “But we need to make a showing that if the Daughters of the Confederacy have their rights according to the first amendment, then we ought to be able to stand here with our guns as well to show that we will not be intimidated nor threatened.”
Caddo Commissioners have been leading the charge to remove a Confederate statue from Shreveport in order to appease the mob. However, the United Daughters of the Confederacy has filed a legal brief at least temporarily stopping the cowardly government officials from committing cultural genocide. Caddo District Judge Craig Marcotte has not given a time frame on when he plans to make his ruling.
Patriotic protesters may have to fight fire with fire in order to prevent the savages from raping America’s proud history.
Big League Politics reported on a group of patriots who stood their ground and refused to let the mob win in a Kentucky town:
On Friday evening, a group of armed patriots in Brandenburg, Ky. protected a Confederate statue as a Black Lives Matter mob was expected to gather and potentially deface it.
The mob has made a big deal of the 70 foot Confederate statue, which used to be located on the University of Louisville campus until 2016, as they continue their ongoing cultural genocide. The patriots of Brandenburg showed up to say no more to the ISIS-style movement of destruction…
WDRB reported that certain “business owners boarded up windows in anticipation of possible violence, but law enforcement officers from several agencies had kept the peace, at least through 10 p.m.”
These armed patriots made their stand as the left-wing cultural genocide has swept across America, with black dominance being projected through acts of mayhem nationwide.
The constitutional militia may need to make a return with government officials capitulating and hamstringing law enforcement while BLM runs wild.
