Shapiro REACTS to Dave Chappelle & Sage Steele Getting “CANCELLED”
Political correctness continues to run amok in our institutions. So Sage Steele is a really talented broadcaster over at ESPN and she does the noon. Sports centre she’s been doing SportsCenter at at ESPN. For years she happens to be a biracial woman and she was doing a podcast with jay cutler, and she made some controversial comments now in the past, she’s been openly somewhat. Conservative sage has so the notion that sage steel was ever really hiding the ball on her politics is untrue and she’s gotten blowback pretty publicly from people at ESPN about it now remember ESPN has become MSNBC with footballs ESPN spent years broadcasting, whatever idiotic political statements, LeBron James, wanted to make and then treating them as though they were some sort of Moses on the mountain moment. Anything dumb and left that athletes say is projected into the stratosphere by ESPN into anchors spent four years, making overtly political comments about Donald trump, for example, to very little blowback unless they said something so extraordinarily outrageous that it drew like intense fire.
Pretty much every day was just dominated by lies about policing in the United States
or about systemic racism in the United States, and the ESPN went woke a long time ago. Southern sports illustrated like the entire sort of institutional sports media, is way to the left of virtually all media, maybe including political media sage. Steel is an exception to that right. She’s tweeted, some things that tend toward the conservative and while she was on with jay cutler, she made a couple of comments. She made one comment about Barack Obama. She was asked by jay cutler about Barack Obama on a census form saying that he was black as opposed to biracial, which he is right.
Barack Obama is biracial; his mom was white, and his dad was black. Sage Steel is also biracial, and her dad is black, and her mom is white and uh, and here is uh. Here’s what Sage Steele had to say and she’s like well, what happens when you uh when you fill out your census, I’m like? Well, I don’t know when the last time I filled out my sense. This was, but if they make you choose a race, yeah, she’s like we’re going to put it, I go walt both she’s like well, you can’t he goes well what if Barack Obama chose black and he’s biracial, I’m like well, congratulations to the president. That’s his thing. I think that’s fascinating, considering his black dad was nowhere to be found, but his white mom and grandma raised him.
But hey you. Do you I’m going to. Do me? Okay? So how dare she point out the reality, which is that Barack Obama, you know characterizes himself as purely black as opposed to biracial, and she literally says in that clip. You can do what you want right. That’s fine, but it’s interesting how he characterizes himself one way, as opposed to another. Okay, fine, like that.
That is a fairly inoffensive comment. When I say fairly, I mean like completely there’s nothing offensive about that right for her to say that she who has the same racial status as Barack Obama, chooses to write mixed race on her forms and Barack Obama does not is sort of culturally interesting. That’s true! That is kind of a culturally interesting, interesting thing, and it demonstrates how our society tends to box people in to single race thinking, as opposed to the reality, which is that a huge number of Americans in the United States are mixed race and that continues to grow year on year. There’s nothing particularly controversial about that, and then she had this to say about vaccine mandate, so ESPN Disney they put down these vaccine mandates like a lot of other major companies in the united states. Sage. Steel is very critical of that.
Here’s! What you had to say. I respect everyone’s decision. I really do but to mandate. It is um, sick and it’s scary. So, I get it to an extent that I think the mandate is what I really have an issue with, and- and I I I don’t know- I don’t know what comes next um, but I do know for me personally. I feel I feel like defeated.
Okay and uh ESPN decided that they were going to suspend her over this, so they issued a statement on Tuesday saying that steel would not return to the network for a week, foregoing her noon spot on SportsCenter and has been removed as host of the 2021 ESPNEWS women and sports summit taking place October 18th through the 20th. So um that’s interesting. They said at ESPN we embrace different points of view, dialogue and discussion that makes this place great. That said, that said always, that said, but we expect that those points of view be expressed respectfully and amen are consistent with our values and in line with our internal policies. Um. I don’t see anything disrespectful about what she said.
She was giving her opinion on vaccine mandates
It seems much more disrespectful that you are forcing her to get a vaccine to continue working at ESPN and forcing people to continue like that’s. What’s more disrespectful, a person saying you will be fired unless you take this vaccine that you have questions about or the person saying. I think that’s sick, that you’re doing that, which one is more disrespectful seriously. Now: listen! ESPN’s! A private company they can do what they want with that said, would they have done this? Had the situation been reversed and had the person who was speaking been hypocritical of president trump or been hyper sycophantic toward Barack Obama, which ESPN was for literally all the years that Barack Obama was president? I have serious doubts about that. The reality is that the heads of ESPN are all to the left.
ESPN is attempting to cater to a particular crowd that crowd tends to to be toward the left, demographically speaking and so Sage Steele has to pay the price. For that she put out a statement saying. I know my recent comments created controversy for the company and I apologize we’re in the midst of an extremely challenging time that impacts all of us, it’s more critical than ever that we communicate constructively and thoughtfully. So that is um. You know she’s. I I fail to see what she says here that is fireable like truly.
I don’t understand what she says here that is fireable
or suspend able that did not stop ESPN from suspending her until apparently further notice. I think there’s a pretty good shot that ESPN ends up canning her at the end of this, and I think the reason for that is because yeah by the way, I think the real reason for that is ESPN is trying to cut salary because they’ve been losing viewers hand over fist and I’m sure that stage steel has been working there for quite a while makes good money over there and they’re, probably just going to find some excuse to canter, because this is what ESPN does. But again, it is just indicative of how stupid our culture is that if you go on air and you’re a biracial woman, you say something people don’t like about Barack Obama. You might lose your job over it or if you say that you don’t like vax mandates, you might lose your job over that. Meanwhile, that’s not the only politically correct attempted cancellation of the day, so Dave Chappelle has a brand new special on Netflix and he sort of alternates his specials. He does ones that are kind of woke and then highly praised because they’re not as funny but there, woke by the by the rotten tomatoes crowd, and then he does ones that are actually funny but politically incorrect.
So he uh makes some comments in his new Netflix special about the phenomenon of turfs trans-exclusionary, radical feminists, as they are called by the trans community, meaning women who say that biological women exist here is uh Dave, Chappelle, defending jk Rowling, I’m team, turf [Applause]. I agree. I agree man, gender is a fact. You have to look at it from a woman’s perspective. Look at it like this Caitlyn Jenner, whom I’ve met wonderful person. Caitlyn Jenner was voted woman of the year her first year as a woman am not that something okay for this sort of stuff glad is now lambasting Dave, Chappelle and they’re, calling for Dave, Chappelle to be removed from Netflix glad said, Dave Chappelle’s brand has become synonymous with ridiculing trans people and other marginalized communities.
Negative reviews and viewers loudly condemning his latest special is a message to the industry. Audiences. Don’t support platforming, anti-lgbtq diatribes. We agree, amazing, how the people, who are very much in favour of expanding every quote, unquote right to encompass pretty much. Every activity do not include among those rights speaking what you think about things, then you ought to be de-platformed. So amazingly beautiful stuff here from our sensorium left, we’re in a battle for the culture and for our values like and subscribe to help keep our videos on the front line of the fight and top of your feed.
