ESPN has picked a side, the far left wing of sports. They don’t respect you if you vote for Donald Trump or even consider voting for Donald Trump. They don’t want your business if you’re a Republican. In fact, they believe you are all racist and Colin Kaepernick and Jemele Hill are the real heroes.
Worse than that, ESPN has an entirely different standard for what employees and those affiliated with the company can say based on which side of the political aisle they support. Far left wing Democrats can say anything they want, everyone else has to stay silent for fear of being fired.
Let me be clear here, I don’t have a problem with people having political opinions. I even think the idea that companies should be policing their employee political comments is a bad precedent and I’ve written and said that for years.
But I do have a problem when the biggest sports media company in the country, and one of the biggest media companies in the entire world, has a clear double standard when it comes to which political opinions are allowed to be aired publicly.
