Hypocrite: ESPN Prettyboy Calls Non-Obama Voters “Racist”; COMPLAIN to ESPN

By Debbie Schlussel
On Friday, I told you about ESPN’s racist, bigoted casting call for a commercial depicting various ethnicities on college campuses.
But apparently, the bigotry of his own employer was lost on ESPN prettyboy Chris Fowler. The “College Game Day” broadcaster announced to viewers that if you didn’t vote for Barack Obama, you won’t hire a Black coach. In other words, if you didn’t vote for Obama, you’re a racist.
I’ve gotten a number of letters from rightfully upset ESPN “Game Day” viewers, who want to watch football, not hear the inane Fowler’s political views and racism litmus tests. That includes reader David:
Look Who’s Calling You a Racist . . .

ESPN’s Chris Fowler Says Non-Obama Voters are Racist

Chris Fowler opened his mouth only to insert his foot.
During College Gameday this past Saturday he stated if you didn’t vote for Obama then you likely wouldn’t hire a black guy as a head coach.
So in other words… if you didn’t vote for Obama… chances are you are a racist. Ideology be damned – skin color should decide your vote/choices, right?
Almost a new low for ESPN. Right up there with sending Jeremy Schaap up to Iceland to goad [DS: the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel nutjob] Bobby Fisher into saying something crazy, and then calling it news. Fowler should be made to apologize, but he won’t be.

Commenter “scottinoc” wrote on Free Republic:

On the discussion of why there aren’t “enough” African American coaches in college football, Chris Fowler discussed the lure of big money NFL contracts for black assistant coaches, etc, then the discussion naturally gravitated to the racism angle, “behind the scenes”.
“Among those behind-the-scenes financial backers of big universities, there may not be…you know…that many people who voted for Obama…”
Sheesh, now I can’t even watch ESPN college football gameday without being told that I’m racist for not voting for Obama.

Thanks, Chris. Look in the mirror. And look at your own network and their bigoted casting call for a commercial for your own show.
Oh, and by the way, the real racists are the ones–like Jesse Jackson–who constantly complain that there aren’t enough collegiate Black coaches, but look the other way on the obvious disparity on the field, where 75%–plus of the players are Black, and 77%-plus of the players on scholarship are Black. Yes, the real racists are the ones who set quotas and affirmative action requirements for hiring and promotions in coaching.
But don’t hold your breath for Chris Fowler to give both sides and comment on that.
Complain to ESPN, and let the network know that Chris Fowler’s politics have no place in college football broadcasts.
Oh, and by the way, don’t expect a “Fairness Doctrine” to balance this kind of stuff out.

I looked for YouTube video of Chris Fowler to find anything of substance. While there were many videos of Fowler spewing forth hot air, the only videos of any entertainment value were those depicting Chris Fowler juggling. But it’s a different Chris Fowler. Well, at least one Chris Fowler has talent. And it’s not the one who called 55 million-plus Americans “racist”:

Guilty white liberals have completely infiltrated every corner of this great country. Morons that are quick to call names with no substantive argument to back up the mud slinging. I never watch espn these days. I guess I out grew them. I grew weary of the millionaire athletes being indicted for murders and rapes and owners and coaches that put a serious face on for cameras. They never fail to hire these criminals but put on the serious face for the cameras and speak at length about looking out for a young man in his darkest hour. Kobe Bryant gets gushed about as he scores 40 and 50 point games in the middle of a rape trial. Great man!

Here’s an interesting fact for you Mr. Chris Fowler (and to all of you at ESPN) It has been said, that had Barack Obama been trying to land a job with either the Secret Service, FBI, or CIA, he would not have even gotten a reply.
This is not about race … it is, and always was, about character and credibility … something you obviously lack as well.

    To be President I thought you had to have a secret clearance. How did Obama get his when he hung around with convicted domestic terrorist Billy Ayers and the hate monger Jeremiah Wright? He shouldn’t be able to pass any background investigation!

The Los Angeles local news outlets have been constantly talking up Obama since the election with their drool cups firmly attached. During segways the chit chat is Obama this… Michelle that….
YUK!!
It is getting so bad that I cannot watch any of them and get all my news from the Internet since Obama bought the Presidency with the help of the MSM.
Jimmy you are right about him not being able to pass a background check. I would be willing to bet he could not sweep the floors at City Hall let alone get a job in Law Enforcement.

Hmmm, Racist ? Your damn right I’m a racist. Matter of fact, Ive been called the Ultimate Racist before. Why…because I treat everybody the same, and a lot of people don’t like that. Me not voting for BHO wasn’t racist. I didn’t vote for McCain either.

Nothing new about ESPN’s liberalism.
They hired the dreadful Robin Roberts. Listen to the “Sports Reporters” show and they are overwhelming liberal. And, of course, their idiotic reaction to Rush Limbaugh and many, many others.
People here in Tennessee have detested Fowler since he called their fans trailer park trash years ago.
The worst part is mixing this nonsense in with sports. I’d bet 99.9% of the people like me who watch ESPN don’t want to hear about politics on the left or right. We just want to enjoy sports for a while.
Even though I’m not much of a Fox News fan these days, they have had a great opportunity to knock out ESPN like they did CNN. Too bad.

Interesting. When I attempt to send an email, I get an error that the web page is unavailable. I guess ESPN does not want any dissenting opinion.

GUILT THE VOTE!!
NOW BECOMES
GUILT THE MASSES!! CONTINUES FOR YEARS AND YEARS!!
This country finished off its emasculation on election night. Just watch any show for teens and you see how the boys are just as prissy as the girls now. Men’s magazines now have men body scents (not cologne) just like women. Now without any testicular fortitude quasi-men like Fowler just want to look good for the camera and just like the female poparts they will say anything to appease the consensus. Go along to get along. So along comes Obama and for him to sound like he is making a statement Fowler makes an infantile assertion that if you don’t vote for Obama then you cant properly ever discern the differences of blacks and others in the hiring process. Maybe he should give up his job and allow a black guy to take his seat.
Oh by the way did you catch San Francisco coach Mike Singletary who is black wear a large cross around his neck. I bet that must made the San Fransicko liberals fume knowing someone would wear a cross in San Fransicko. That is someone I would hire, he is a real man. He is total discipline and concentration. Was my favorite linebacker and great person.

Well another reason I don’t watch sports on TV except the Orioles now.
No matter what you watch on TV now, it’s always gonna be Obama inserted somewhere in there when you least expect it.

This shows the idiocy — to be charitable — of those who say that now that BHO has been elected, we have shown the world that we have overcome our racism (sic) and that we can now move past this. No, it is just going to get worse.
Kind of like those foolish people who, when Bill Clinton got in trouble re Paula Jones, said that now that Bill Clinton got into trouble for sexual harassment, it would no longer be such an issue in society. Of course the liberal/communists turn racism and liberalism charges on and off to suit their purposes, and anyone who doesn’t realize this is extremely naive, to say the least.
The events of the last few months are helping us realize, right in front of our eyes, the outlines of a socialist society that many of us could barely visualize, and then, just by reading about something that really seemed distant.

If disagreeing with obama is racist then I am a RACIST!!

“Morons that are quick to call names”
Indeed. Et tu, Brute?

I got real fed up with this racist nonsense when it comes to not voting for Obama.

Let’s see. I’m black and I didn’t vote for Obama ether becuase I voted for Ralph Nader. The problem is, the fact that not all blacks supported Obama was never mentioned in the mainstream.
That’s why I can no longer bring up politics to any random person except my girlfriend now.

ESPN has been this Politically Correct since their first day on the air,they’ve had endless personalities that toe the Leftist party line; Roy Firestone,George Grande,Bob Ley,John Saunders,Dick & Jeremy Schaap,Ralph Wiley,Keith Olbermann,Dan Patrick,Robin Roberts,Stuart Scott,Steven A. Smith,Michael Wilbon,Tony Kornheiser,Dan LeBatard,Andrea Kramer….and every single day,it gets worse

Hi Debbie-
I’m so tired of hearing that I and 57 million other voters are racist because I didn’t vote for Obama. The truth is: there are 65 million voters, most of whom didn’t have the intellectual curiosity to determine who Obama is beyond the color of his skin, and as such, diluted my informed vote. The fraud that is this administration is being boycotted (along with the Marxist main stream media) at http://boycott-the-msm.ning.com/. Those fed up with what was done to us can join others.

The sports industry knows it must please liberals to keep the Government subsidized monopoly/gravy train going.
