ESPN Pulls Asian Announcer for Being Named Robert Lee

Leave it to the moonbats at ultra-liberal ESPN to push the war on all things Southern past self-parody into the realm of the surreal:

ESPN confirmed Tuesday night that it had decided to pull an announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee. This Robert Lee is Asian.

As even the idiots running ESPN might be aware, Lee is a common Chinese name.

Mr. Lee had been scheduled to call the Cavaliers Sept. 2 game in Charlottesville against William and Mary.

Incredibly, ESPN continues to double down on the dumb by lamenting the insanity that it not only perpetuates but escalates.

“It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue,” ESPN said in its statement.

It has become an issue because the ESPN thought police made it one. They seem to be so politically correct, they suspect even Asians of being white supremacists if their name reminds them of a famous Southerner.

Unlit recently, Robert E. Lee was universally regarded not only as a significant historical figure, but as a great man worthy of the highest respect. He fought not because he was a Nazi but because he was loyal to the same Virginia as other great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison. His honorable surrender allowed the Civil War to end (except in the minds of the liberals who are still fighting it), rather than drag on indefinitely as a guerrilla war. If Southerners had known that even their heroes would be erased by vicious sore winners, they may never have heeded Lee’s call to lay down their arms.

If they can demonize Lee like this, they can do the same to the other great Virginians mentioned above. In the meantime, ESPN employees are advised not to wear Lee jeans to work; they would probably get fired as racists.

    This is Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general… don’t worry, easily triggered liberals, he’s been dead for years already.

    Its just getting crazier by the second. It seems that if just one person complains, all hell must break loose to pacify one complainer.

    Be careful who you’re calling a great man, Dave. The definition is likely to change since after the confederates, the moonbats will likely set their sights on the founders.

    Maybe they can have “Caitlin” call the game. He’s a real hero, or so we’re told.

  7. Colonel_Bat_Guano says:

    There is no truth to the rumor that he will be replaced by John Booth.

    The Onion has to keep reject their headlines because they turn out to be true stories.

    Toughest job in publishing, The Onion, trying to stay ahead of reality in their parody.

    Finally, ESPN is addressing racial issues in a meaningful way.

    I hear a demand has been made on the FAA. Apparently there’s a guidance transmitter that gives aircraft the correct descent angle. It’s currently called a glideslope. They demand it be renamed glide oriental.

    Insanity, pure & simple.
    I hope Lee sues for millions, and wins. That, and pull their FCC license permanently.

    Hopefully somebody will put a statue of Lee or Jefferson in the broadcast booth just to make the announcers feel very uncomfortable.
