ESPN to Give Award to Black Lives Matter Thugs for Destroying University of Missouri

Cognitively challenged Black Lives Matter bullies were able to claim the scalp of the President of the University of Missouri, replace him with a militant social justice warrior, and send the school into a tailspin after black football players went on strike to show support for the malevolent, irrational, racist, ultra-left movement. For that, the likeminded moonbats at ESPN are granting an award.

The success of activists at Missouri sparked a wave of imitators all across the country, who held their own mass protests and wrote their own demand lists, to varying degrees of success. It also sparked a major backlash against MU itself, which has seen a big drop in enrollment that has torn a $32 million hole in its budget.

Mizzou’s collapse as an institution of higher learning is a direct result of submitting to these hooligans instead of expelling them. The leftist kooks running ESPN are even more eager to submit:

ESPN has decided to reward MU’s football team for its acts. The sports network announced Friday that the 2015 team will be collectively honored at its second annual Sports Humanitarian of the Year awards, which are held in tandem with the ESPY awards. During the July 12 show in Los Angeles, the team will be given the Stuart Scott ENSPIRE award, named in honor of the ESPN anchor who died of cancer last year. The award “celebrates someone that has taken risk and used an innovative approach to helping the disadvantaged through the power of sports,” ESPN said in a statement.

If anyone is “disadvantaged” here, it is the students who actually went to Mizzou to learn rather than to play football or to protest, and whose degrees are worth far less than they were, now that the school has been reduced to a laughing stock that has been frantically downsizing in an attempt to stay alive.

This is consistent with the over-the-top moonbat posturing that characterizes ESPN, the most aggressively leftist channel on national television (see e.g. here, here, here, here, and possibly worst of all here).
