Remember Jemele Hill? She was the African American co-host on ESPN who got herself fired because she couldn’t restrain herself from making hysterical anti-Trump declarations and other politically inflammatory social media posts and outbursts despite being warned, even by the left-wing Disney mouthpiece ESPN, to cool it. I wrote a couple of posts about her; since then she has receded into irrelevance, where angry, vile public figures like her belong. Oh, now she works for The Atlantic, a publication almost as much obsessed with Trump-bashing as Stephen Colbert. The problem is that Hill is irrational, arrogant, and somehow under the impression that her vendettas have any societal use whatsoever.She also is laboring under the delusion that her emotion-soaked, undisciplined brain is a fine-tuned instrument. It’s not. She a classic example of someone what was told she was brilliant her whole life by lazy and incompetent mentors and instructors, and has been permanently handicapped as a result. And as a result, she serves society garbage, thinking it is caviar.
Yesterday the Boston Globe reported that New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft had sent a team plane to China to pick up 1.7 million N95 masks to fly to Massachusetts for the use of health care workers as they care for patients ill withe the Wuhan virus.
Search as you might, there is no negative spin you can place on Kraft’s act. It is altruistic. It is compassionate. It is an act of service to his community and the state that supports his team.
Now here is what Jemele Hill tweeted:
Even Jemele supporters—why there are any, I cannot fathom—tried to explain why this was ugly and inappropriate. She doubled down, because she has the self righteousness of John Brown, and about the same amount of self-restraint, This was not the time to be divisive, one told her. She replied,
“If you consider facts divisive, oh well. But maybe these owners and billionaires need to better understand that just as their money can do a good deed, it can also cause irreparable damage.”
Should “Trump has done irreparable damage” be added to the Big Lie list, or is it just a variation of some of the others, like #5 (“Everything Is Terrible”) and #6 (“Trump’s Defiance Of Norms Is A Threat To Democracy”)? For the record, the likely irreparable damage is from Hill and the others in the Axis of Unethical Conduct—the Democrats, “resistance,” and mainstream media—who have undermined our elections, the institution of the Presidency, the Constitution, and the public bonds essential to a democracy. Just for the record.
Another fan asked if her bile was appropriate and necessary at a time when the nation needed to unite. Her answer to that: “Yes it is necessary. If we don’t critically think about how we got here, we will be back here again.”
Yeah, you’re a real whiz at “critical thinking,” Jemele.
Her version of it led her to conclude that Trump was only elected because of America’s bigotry and white supremacy, and because of campaign donations from Robert Kraft.
