Sage Steele has been a consistent presence on ESPN for more than a decade. She’s attractive, knowledgeable – and loves America. It is that last quality that has apparently put her in the timeout room of her ESPN bosses.
Where are the Hollywood elite coming to Steele’s defense? Where are Democrats proclaiming ESPN is practicing a racist anti-woman agenda?
Crickets. You see, American leftists would have conservatives in this country treated very similar to Jews during 1930’s Germany. They are marked, denounced, and punished for simply being who they are.

ESPN replaces Sage Steele on ‘NBA Countdown’ amid network’s decision to limit on-air talent’s political commentary
“Sage Steele has been replaced by Michelle Beadle on ESPN’s “NBA Countdown.”
Steele has been with ESPN for a decade, and has been at the center of several controversies in recent months regarding her conservative political views. In January, Steele came under fire when she complained about protesters of President Donald Trump’s travel ban, causing her to miss her flights.
She also faced heat for abruptly ending an interview with Arcade Fire lead singer Win Butler after he voiced his left-leaning political opinions at the NBA’s Celebrity All-Star Game, and for criticizing NFL players’ decision not to kneel for the National Anthem.
Most recently, Steele found herself in hot water after saying at a conference in February that the “worst racism that I have received … is from black people.”
“There are times that I believe that we, as African-Americans, can be hypocritical, and that is to not look ourselves in the mirror when we are saying certain things and blaming other groups for one thing when we are doing the exact same thing,” she added.”
Note how ESPN is stating Steel’s demotion is an attempt to curtail on-air talent’s sharing of their political views. Steel’s replacement is Michelle Beadle:
This is the very same Michelle Beadle who tweeted “Chant, Monkeys chant” during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) which featured several prominent Black speakers including Sheriff David Clark and Dr. Ben Carson – both supporters of President Donald Trump.
ESPN has since promoted her. Let that sink in.
Sage Steele speaks of honoring America, its soldiers, and its flag – and is punished.
Michelle Beadle calls conservatives – including Black conservatives, “Monkeys” and is rewarded.
ESPN – Heil Hitler.
