A sad sign of the times, when even in sports, political correctness extremes having gone out-of-control thanks to the old msm.
ESPN of Bristol, Connecticut, USA, decided to drop country and western singer Hank Williams Jr.’s famous theme song for “Monday Night Football” over remarks about President Barack Hussein Obama. The famous song in question, “Are You Ready For Some Football” has become the weekly theme song for the NFL Monday night football games.
The issue in question was this remark:”You remember the golf game they had? That was one of the biggest political mistakes ever. That turned a lot of people off. It just didn’t go over,” he said.
When asked what about the game he didn’t like, Williams Jr. pointed to the participants.
“Come on, come on, that would be like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli prime minister Benjamin] Netanyahu,” he said. “In the shape this country is in?”
What I cannot understand is why would ESPN take what Mr. Williams Jr. say in these above remarks when he is NOT EVEN an employee of ESPN? Truly this nation, the USA is in trouble when even any comments by those who are in the entertainment industry who are not liberal or radical liberal has to be censored by those who are into political correctness in the extreme as well-being simply afraid of the truth.
What I find distasteful is major league sports channels such as ESPN getting to close in involvement with anything political. It would do ESPN well if it DID NOT TAKE OUT OF CONTEXT what Mr. Williams Jr. had said and let it go at that.
