ESPN has gone fully “woke.”
The network has made the decision to lean Left politically from top to bottom.
And one ESPN host is irate at the company for the insane thing it forced her to do.
In the past decades, especially the last five years, sports have become highly politicized.
From Caitlyn Jenner winning an ESPY for coming out as transgender to Colin Kaepernick launching the anti-American anthem protests to NBA teams boycotting playoffs games, sports are no longer an escape from politics.
ESPN has been one of the major perpetrators of this shift.
Not only does the company hue to a progressive message, but it has purged many conservative voices.
One of the few remaining conservatives at the company is Sportscenter anchor Sage Steele, who caught flak for expressing her frustration with the left-wing mobs that swarmed the airport after Donald Trump’s travel restriction.
Now Steele is ruffling feathers for calling ESPN “sick” and “scary” after she was forced to get the COVID vaccine in order to keep her job.
During a podcast interview with former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, who openly supported Donald Trump, Steele said:
“I work for a company that mandates it and I had until September 30th to get it done or I’m out…I respect everyone’s decision, I really do, but to mandate it is sick and it’s scary to me in many ways…I just—I’m not surprised it got to this point, especially with Disney—I mean a global company like that.”
ESPN sideline reporter Allison Williams was recently forced to step away from her job because she and her husband are planning to have a second child and her physician recommended she not take the vaccine at this time.
The vaccine hysterics immediately bit off her head because they want everyone vaccinated irrespective of what their physicians tell them.
Cutler recently spoke out against mask mandates in Tennessee where his kids go to school.
The COVID regime is enforcing ever-increasing restrictions despite the country nearly reaching herd immunity.
As America’s COVID status improves, the establishment crackdowns get worse.
If Steele gets run out of ESPN, she will join fellow conservatives Will Cain, Britt McHenry, Curt Schilling, Mike Ditka, Bob Lee, and a handful of others.
Meanwhile, progressive outbursts have been rewarded by ESPN.
Steele recently retweeted a message from Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac who said he would not get vaccinated because he already had COVID and recovered from it.
Misrepresentation only allows for others to attack straw men, and not reason with the true ideas and heart of their fellow man. It helps no one! True journalism is dying! I believe it is your God given right to decide if taking the vaccine is right for you! Period! More to follow

Isaac has become a lightning rod of criticism from the Left not only because of his vaccine stance but because he refused to kneel for the national anthem during the NBA’s bubble playoffs.
The COVID regime is attempting to stamp out dissent, but more and more people are speaking out.
