ESPN, which is supposed to be a sports channel and not the ES-BLM network, has suspended the rabid anti Trump host Jemele Hill for her 2nd violation of the network’s social-media guidelines. The second strike for the social justice warrior moon-shining as an ESPN host occurred on Twitter, when she urged her followers to boycott the Dallas Cowboys’ advertisers.
This play always work. Change happens when advertisers are impacted. If you feel strongly about JJ’s statement, boycott his advertisers. https://t.co/LFXJ9YQe74

“Suspended for two weeks” (WITH PAY)…wow, such a brutal punishment.
Crazy me, I used to call 2 weeks off with pay a vacation. ESPN’s total hypocrisy is obvious in instantly firing Curt Schilling last year when he made comments about North Carolina’s transgender law, as compared to the kid-glove treatment Hill receives; this disparity is solid proof that ESPN and Jemele Hill are fellow travelers.
Al Sharpton, who can be best described as a professional black, rushed to denounce ESPN’s enforcing of their corporate rules:
ESPN’s suspension of Jemele Hill is an outrage and should NOT go unanswered. ESPN and advertisers will hear from us!

“We consider it outrageous that Jemele Hill was suspended by ESPN. She has the right to tell people that they ought to let advertisers know how they feel, since they are the consumers. While she didn’t call for a direct boycott, it’s not off the table for us in the civil rights community.”
While Al Sharpton may argue to no one’s surprise that Jemele Hill “dindu nuffin”, she actually called for NFL fans to boycott advertisers who are aligned with teams pushing back against ‘kneeling’, after NFL team-owner Jerry Jones warned his players they’ll get benched if they fail to stand up during the national anthem. Jemele Hill previously called the Donald to be a white supremacist who is “unqualified and unfit” for being POTUS.
President Trump is 100% behind Jerry Jones’ decision:
A big salute to Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, who will BENCH players who disrespect our Flag.”Stand for Anthem or sit for game!”
