Last week Hank Williams Jnr has his spot on ESPN’s Monday Night Football cancelled for perceived insults to Barack Obama. The company claimed Hank had compared Obama to Hitler.
He hadn’t. Hank compared the gulf between Obama and Republican House Leader Boehner to that of the gulf that might have existed between Isreali leader Benjamin Natanyahu and Adolf Hitler.
He was trying to make the point that the Obama administration and the Republicans were deeply polarised.
Hank apologised for the misunderstanding. Nevertheless, he has decided to part company for good with ESPN.
ESPN appear to me to be just another group of the kind of stinking far left liberals who control most of the mainstream media. Ready to fire the right winger Hank Williams Jnr over a misunderstood and comparatively minor issue, they’ve issued no condemnation of the dirtbag Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist who frequently appears on the network.
Tyson recently attacked Sarah Palin in the most disgusting manner. The Daily Caller reports–
In an interview on the radio show “Gridlock” on KWWN, ESPN’s Las Vegas affiliate, Tyson took a few shots at Palin, boasting about interracial sex and the allegation that Palin had an affair with former NBA star Glen Rice.
“Glen Rice is a wonderful man,” Tyson said. “He’s a wonderful guy. You want her to be with somebody like [Dennis] Rodman getting up … in there. Pushing her guts up in the back of her head!”
Tyson went on to say that Rice was too “non-threatening.”
“Glen Rice is a nice, mellow, docile man, non-threatening guy,” he said. “You want someone like Rodman — yeah baby! Let’s get that donkey in here now. [laughter] Just imagine Palin with a big old black stallion ripping. Yeehaw!”
Later in the interview, Tyson had a name for what Palin “needed.”
“Sarah Palin … she met the ‘wombshifter.’”
Tyson wasn’t even censured for this. Rather the comments provoked a tweet from ESPN radio host Mitch Moss who expressed his approval of Tyson’s crass humor:
WOW! @miketyson just made his most epic appearance ever with Gridlock! #wombshifter??! Are you serious?! My head hurts from laughing.
As far as I know, Tyson will continue to appear on ESPN and nothing has been said about his cowardly and vulgar attacks. What’s new about liberals and their double standards right?
