Sports have become unbearably “woke” in the current political climate.
Athletes and reporters are openly reciting far-left talking points.
And an anti-Trump former ESPN host ripped America with one infuriating accusation.
Jemele Hill is so far left and unhinged, she became too off-putting for ESPN, which has bent the knee to the left-wing mob.
Hill called Donald Trump a white supremacist, and eventually got suspended by the network after calling for advertiser boycotts in order to hurt Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Hill is so clueless about economics, she didn’t realize those sponsors also worked with her company.
Hill then moved to The Atlantic, and her political “hot takes” only got worse.
She recently said it’s impossible to vote for Trump and not be racist, even though she acknowledged her own mother voted for him in 2016.
Now Hill has moved on to saying that America is no better than Nazi Germany:
Been reading Isabel Wilkerson’s new book, “Caste,” and if you were of the opinion that the United States wasn’t nearly as bad as Nazi Germany, how wrong you are. Can’t encourage you enough to read this masterpiece.

This is insane on multiple levels.
First, the book in question is about the Indian caste system.
In America, a Maharaja and an untouchable have an equal chance at becoming successful because of free markets and rule of law.
But somehow a book about the caste system morphed into an attack on America.
It’s true that Germany’s Nuremberg laws were inspired by the Dixiecrats (an inconvenient fact for the Democrats), but America didn’t embark on a genocidal mission that included starting World War II.
The founding fathers also built a system that was designed to eventually unravel slavery, an institution that had been around since the dawn of civilization (and still exists today in some parts of the world).
There were no press freedoms in Nazi Germany, either.
Perhaps the most disturbing part of Hill’s anti-American rhetoric is its intent.
America is the freest and most prosperous country in human history because of the ideals of the Constitution.
Hill and the radical left don’t believe in the Constitution, so they want to tear down the country by constantly calling it evil and racist.
To the left, the Constitution is a roadblock to their anti-freedom, socialist agenda.
Anyone that calls America racist and broken is a friend to the left, no matter how vile and destructive they are.
This is damaging to the character of a country, and it can only lead to authoritarianism.
But the left will lie and call it “liberation.”
