American Taliban: ESPN pulls Asian-American announcer because of his Robert Lee name

Already insane, the Left’s American Taliban frenzy of removing and tearing down Confederate flags and monuments has taken a turn to the truly bizarre.

 (pronounced “li”) is one of the most common Chinese surnames, which is Anglicized as “Lee”.

There is an Asian-American ESPN sports announcer whose name is Robert Lee, but who has zero relation or connection to General Robert E. Lee of the Confederate Army in the American Civil War who personally opposed slavery, calling it “a moral and political evil”.

But that hasn’t stopped ESPN, in a fit of PC-lunacy, from pulling Asian-American announcer Robert Lee from a Virginia football game, solely because of his name.

Fox News reports, August 22, 2017:

Lee, an Asian-American sportscaster who started with the network in 2016, was moved to a different game “simply because of the coincidence of his name,” ESPN said, referencing the Confederate general Robert E. Lee. […]

ESPN, which has faced accusations of liberal bias that some observers believe has led to a downtick in viewership, said it moved its announcer to the Youngstown State game at Pittsburgh.

The network’s full statement: “We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. 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.”

  2. They actually ADMITTED to this insanity! I knew they were stupid and PC enough to do something like this, but I DIDN’T know they were moronic enough to publicly ADMIT that this was the reason they moved the announcer to another game.

    Alright, the Liberals are now officially beyond all hope. I think we need concentration camps.

  4. I hope Lee sues the pants off ESPN.

    What are libtards going to demand next? That descendants of Confederate soldiers become trans racial to make amends and remove their racist history? Freakin insanity.

    • The image on the shirt is that of an assasin of thousands innocent Cuban young men fighting against communism. Like all cowards begged for his life. Glad he was executed.

    Yes, it’s easy to see how Robert Lee might be mistaken for the Illustrious Honorable General Robert E Lee.

    I wonder, will they decide all the blue bellies who fell during the war of northern aggression should be dug up from the Arlington cemetery since the property did belong to General Robert E Lee until it was confiscated by the northern aggressors.

  18. Fabulous post! I grieve for the desecration of historical markers that denote our history . . . some of our citizens are no better than the ISIS crews that demolish irreplaceable artifacts of antiquity.
