Jason Whitlock Slams ‘Woke’ Males at ESPN Amid Transgender Athletes Debate

jason-whitlock

*Jason Whitlock is calling out the “WOKE” males at ESPN who failed to defend broadcaster Sam Ponder amid criticism for supporting Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines’ stance on transgender athletes.

Gaines has pushed back against the liberal obsession with women competing against men in college sports. Gaines made international headlines when she tied transgender University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas in the 2022 NCAA Championships, Fox Sports Radio reports. 

Ponder was called a “bigot” by USA Today columnist Nancy Armour for supporting Gaines.

Here’s what Whitlock had to say … “According to Nancy Armour, Sam Ponder is a bigot now because she believes biological boys and girls should compete in separate sports. Where are the men at ESPN and throughout the sports world speaking out in support of Samantha Ponder and Sage Steele? Another ESPN employee who has been vocal on the trans sports issue.”

He added, “Why are jocks, sports pundits, and men betraying Ponder defending Gaines? If Mina Kimes gets a mean tweet about her lack of qualifications to be considered an NFL insider, the white and black knights of ESPN rushed to Twitter to protect their Asian queen. There’s no rush to publicly rally around Ponder or Steele because there’s no money or social media clout to be gained.”

Whitlock continued, “You can’t elevate your corporate equity index pointing out the absurdity of men competing against women. Every male ex-jock at ESPN knows it’s unfair for biological boys to compete against girls. They’re experts on the topic. They know far more about competing in athletics than they do about law enforcement, the criminal justice system, and American history, yet they can’t wait to hop on television to second-guess law enforcement, they can’t wait to offer bold opinions about subjects they know very little about, but boys competing against girls? Silence.”

According to Whitlock, … “the executives running the network are petrified of the ‘Alphabet Mafia’ [LQBTQ], and the on-air talent fear social media backlash. It’s collective cowardice.”

“Two women at ESPN, Ponder and Steele, have more courage than Mike Greenberg, Stephen A. Smith, Ryan Clark, Dan Orlovsky, Jalen Rose, Max Kellerman, and all the other men combined. It’s embarrassing,” he said 

“This is what happens when everyone is chasing the bag,” Whitlock said. 

“The solution to dysphoria is not pandering to someone else’s delusion, it’s helping them come to grips with reality, and the reality is the silence of men on the issue of trans athletes speaks to our betrayal of women and God,” he concluded. 

Do you agree with Whitlock’s take on the issue? Sound off in the comments.
