These 2 examples should convince you if you didn’t already know it. The world is a strange place today and getting stranger all the time.
Example #1: An Asian-American sportscaster at ESPN was reassigned to calling a different game than originally scheduled because ~wait for it, his name is Robert Lee and they were afraid of offending liberals in the aftermath of violence that broke out at a protest from a white-nationalist group opposing the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia.
From Outkick The Coverage:
“To avoid offending left-wing idiots Robert Lee, the Asian college football announcer, not the Confederate General who died in 1870 and shares a name with him, was switched to the Youngstown State at Pittsburgh game and Dave Weekley will now call the William and Mary at University of Virginia game.”
Does ESPN really believe people are this dumb or that having an Asian announcer named Robert Lee is too offensive for the average TV viewer to handle? Yes, yes they do. Political Correctness to the nth degree and just plain dumb.
Example #2 is a little more disturbing: A school board in California (where else??) is taking heat for a teacher that read transgender books to her kindergarteners and encouraged a clothes-changing demonstration. Yes kindergarteners, that’s right because you cannot start that liberal, Marxist indoctrination too early.
Parents were outraged when their children came home confused and crying, questioning whether or not they really were a boy or a girl. The teachers and the school defended the action saying the books were “age appropriate”, etc. Take a look:
A-freakingmazing. Like I said we’ve gone stark raving mad.
