There's a difference?: Jemele Hill leaves 'SportsCenter' for social justice wing of ESPN

Remember when ESPN used to show sports, without the constant extreme-left bias and social commentary? It was like the MTV of sports. Jemele Hill has been a large reason for the nonstop politicization of the network and sports as a whole. To give you some background, Hill gained attention last year for her Sept. 11 tweet calling President Trump a "white supremacist," a "bigot" and "the most ignorant, offensive president of [her] lifetime."

Following the tweet, Al Sharpton threatened to boycott ESPN if Hill was fired — she was not fired or even suspended. Less than a month later, Hill called for companies who advertise with the Dallas Cowboys to boycott the team's stance on the National Anthem protests. She was suspended for two weeks. Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, ESPN's parent company, hinted that he did not fire Hill because of her race, saying that it is difficult for him "to understand what it feels like to experience racism."

Recently, in an interview with Al Sharpton, she described Trump's stance on kneelers as "racial pornography" to "stoke his bias".

She added:

And, really, if anybody knew just even the smallest bit of American history, they would understand that what the players have chosen to do is the most patriotic thing that you could, and Colin Kaepernick, who this conversation started with, and still is very much the foundation of this conversation.

Most outlets largely ignored the comments, choosing instead to highlight Hill's statements regarding her departure, even lauding her role in strengthening stories that involve "the intersection of sports, race and politics."

Hill left her position as co-host on ESPN's 6 p.m. edition of SportsCenter for a position at the sports network's social justice-oriented website, The Undefeated.

The Undefeated is a natural home for me, given that it's a site about the intersection between sports, African-Americans, race, culture. It mixes all those things that I think are even more vital, now, to discuss, and I wanted to do it on a platform that was deeply aligned with who I was as a person.

Well apparently even that isn't enough. She has decided to leave the network, which she announced at something called Ozyfest:

It's sort of a realization… I'll be candid. Obviously some of the things that have happened in the last 10, 11 months have played a role in that. But even before any of that stuff happened with Donald Trump, I was feeling… I just wondered to myself, when my contract with ESPN was up, in a few years, whether or not I would continue on… in sports period. There is a real concentration, still a real need, on stories about women of color… that will be a huge focus of what I do.

Wow. What a time to be alive. That's all I can say, really. What a time to be alive.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
