ESPN Broadcaster Punished for Thought Crime
Posted by Van Helsing at October 28, 2009 10:09 AM
Ideological purity has not yet been achieved, even at liberal ESPN:
ESPN broadcaster Bob Griese has been suspended one week for a remark he made about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya.
ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz says Griese will not be working a game this week.
Krulewitz says ESPN has spoken to Griese and "he understands the comment was inappropriate."
During ESPN's broadcast of the Minnesota-Ohio State game Saturday, a graphic was shown listing the top five drivers in NASCAR's points race. Fellow analyst Chris Spielman asked where was Montoya, who is Colombian.
Griese replied he was "out having a taco."
He has twice apologized on air for the remark.
We really need a Hispanic Al Sharpton, so that thought criminals who make lame but forbidden jokes can have someone to crawl to on hands and knees for absolution.
On a tip from Edward.
I heard he was having a chimichanga.

I guess free speech is only for liberal moonbats and wetback weirdos

A taco is not relevant to a Colombian. Was the apology for his error in ascribing a Mexican stereotype to a Colombian, or was the apology for something wrong in choosing a food?

If a Taco turns black that means its cancerous.

How does Juan Pablo feel about the comment?
"I don't really care to tell you the truth."
Once again, white guilt made something out of nothing. The same guilt that got Obama elected.
