Schilling kept doing it after being told to stop, so let's stop using him. Now Linda Koln being suspended and the tennis guy getting fired shows a clear double standard

Thanks.

I assume it was her personal account.

Regardless, that doesn't necessarily exempt her. Many employers expect public behavior to fall in line to prevent unnecessary negative PR and to present the correct image.

Schilling posted a freaking MEME to his facebook page and was fired.

Why?

Violation of msespn's "Inclusion policy". Now, does calling 50% of the voting public white supremacists and bigots sound inclusive to anyone? Riiiiiiiight.

And there she was, right back on the air the next day.

What's that saying about leftists and double standards? Oh yea, that's right.

Stop what, exactly? Being a conservative? Was he calling people names and making racial accusations? If he was, I condemn that too. I'm honestly asking cause I don't know the entire story. but if he was simply commenting on current events or something, but from a more conservative viewpoint, that's fire-able, but THIS is not? Wow.

The further these generations get from being actual victims of real racism, the more they will perpetuate the idea that they are victims. They're taught as children that they have always been victims, are victims, and always will be victims. It's hard to see truth when you've been brainwashed as such.

The chains of victim reasoning need to be broken as the chains of slavery were, and as the chains of real civil rights were. Until that happens, there's no way of each side understanding the other. One side comes to the table with a perceived handicap they don't want to let go of, and the other side comes to the table with the inability to provide anything that will satisfy.

September 13, 2017

ESPN is doubling down on their liberal agenda as a new report from Fox Sports’ Clay Travis revealed that longtime SportsCenter host Linda Cohn was suspended by the network for criticizing the network of being too political.

Sources told Travis on Tuesday night that ESPN president Jon Skipper told Cohn to not come into work and to think about what she said.
