If ESPN had let Robert Lee announce the game as normal, I’d say there was a 2% chance we’d have seen a meme of it.
And even then, people would forget about it in an hour or two.
A strange amount of being a leftist these days is running interference for the stupidity and dishonesty of large corporations.
The Robert Lee thing is another example of ESPN thinking its viewers are idiots when the real idiots are closer to home.
What kind of skewed and condescending view of people they must have to think there would have been a big controversy from Lee’s name.
The ESPN thing is another example of “sensitivity” being used as a shield for its opposite: thinking poorly of your fellow man.
The left are determined to constantly demonstrate that Trump is but one obscene idiot among many.
The guy who took Robert Lee off the UVA game to avoid controversy has to be hoping this doesn’t come up in his next performance review.
ESPN should get the Presidential Medal of Freedom for single-handedly stopping the Confederacy from rising again.
“I’m hiding the word ‘IMPEACH’ in my letter.”
“Why not just come out and say it like millions do constantly?”
“It’s a hidden message.”
Is there a word for that shudder down your spine you feel when you realize eventually there will be an entire Marvel Universe reboot?
An argument against there being an alt-left is that those encouraging and excusing violence on that side are fairly mainstream.
On the right, those excusing violence are just fringe groups with little support. Neo-nazis. White supremacists. The POTUS.
It’s illegal to shout “Wolf!” in a crowded theater unless it’s when Harvey Keitel comes on screen in Pulp Fiction.
This is settled constitutional law.
Amazon Prime’s Comrade Detective is pretty funny and insane. I don’t know why I haven’t heard more people talking about it.
You can’t shout “You can’t shout ‘Fire!’ in a crowded theater!” in an intelligent discussion on free speech.
I told my daughter what James Cameron said about Wonder Woman. Then I had to explain who he is. Then I had to explain Terminator franchise.
Then my daughter asked, “Can robots from the future really come to kill us?” And you can’t honestly answer no to that, can you?
Programming is a tense, intellectual battle between you and whoever designed the crap you’re trying to interface with it.
Hoping for a relaxing, sunny weekend here in Texas. Now to check the weather forecast as I sip my drink…
In defense of Trump, maybe he has no idea what he’s doing.
New hurricane prep step: Download shows you’re binging to iPad in case the power goes out.
I can never take the word “humanist” seriously. Like is it opposed to “dogist”?
I’ve only read Game of Thrones. Last thing I remember was Jon Snow being stabbed to death – only interesting thing to happen in last 2 books.
The third book of Game of Thrones was one of the most exciting things I ever read, but things kinda meandered after that.
One of most frustrating things as some who writes in spare time is imaging what George R.R. Martin does with his day as a full time writer.
I mean, I’m lucky if I get an hour to write a day, and I’m still guessing I’ll have the sequel to Superego out before Winds of Winter.
Anyway, taking years would be okay if they were masterpieces, but the last two needed lots of editing for pacing.
I really enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Made me do something I almost never do: rewatch a Marvel movie as I rewatched vol 1.
I’ve seen and enjoyed almost every Marvel movie but they never seem worth returning to. Maybe first Iron Man.
Why is “alt-fascist” abbreviated as “antifa”?
I’ve heard of both Taylor Swift and Beyoncé and understand they are both singers. That’s all I have to contribute to this conversation.
