ESPN Mentions Warriors Owner Saying He Doesn’t Care About Chinese Genocide Exactly Zero Times

Videos by OutKick

Golden State Warriors part-owner Chamath Palihapitiya admitted over the weekend that he does not care about the lives of Uyghur Muslims. Those lives don’t matter to him one bit, he says.

A part-owner of an NBA team announces he doesn’t care about Chinese genocide. That’s a massive story. Yet the largest sports-talk network by far won’t address it.

Mediaite confirmed via the media monitoring service TVEyes that ESPN has made exactly zero mentions of Palihapitiya’s comments.

Nothing from Malika Andrews, Jalen Rose, Stephen A. Smith, that dummy Mark Jones, Adrian Wojnarowski, Elle Duncan, Bomani Jones, or any of the other angry wokes at ESPN.

And ESPN has previously covered past NBA part-owners — so Palihapitiya’s lack of majority ownership is not a factor. 

In 2019, the NBA fined and banned another part-owner of the Warriors, Mark Stevens, for pushing opposing player Kyle Lowry from his courtside seat during the NBA Finals. Stephen A. Smith, the face of ESPN, ran with this story for days. Notably, Smith called for the NBA to punish Stevens even more.

Smith has no comment on Palihapitiya saying he doesn’t care about genocide. Why is this? The sports media is no different than the NBA.

Both groups have branded themselves around “social justice” and “Black Lives Matter” because it’s advantageous to their marketing campaigns. But whenever the rights of Uyghur or Jewish people are challenged, which is often, these pawns shut up and dribble or tweet. Supporting the lives of any non-black group doesn’t earn you a new contract at ESPN.

“Embarrassing how ESPN isn’t covering one of the Warriors owners saying he doesn’t care at all about Chinese genocide,” OutKick’s Clay Travis tweets. “Clear and transparent protection of their TV partner. MSESPN gonna MSESPN, y’all.”

“You often see agenda based ‘journalism’ based not only on what is covered, but based on what isn’t covered as well. It’s not just @espn,however, watch how none of woke NBA media will ask players or coaches about it either,” Clay Travis adds. “Total memory hole because it challenges SJW narrative.” 

ESPN will cover Kyle Rittenhouse, Jacob Blake, George Floyd, Derek Chauvin, Ahmaud Arbery, but draws the line at an NBA owner belittling the lives of Uyghur Muslims. So at ESPN, a white male acting in self-defense is more troubling than modern-day Nazis running actual Muslim slave labor cotton plantations. Obviously.

  1. Damn..This reminds of of Fox News, Outkick and OAN not mentioning the Domestic Terrorist Attack on the Capitol, The text Messages to Donald Trump by Fox News host or the Oath Keepers being arrested for SEDITION. Funny how that works. Still waiting on Bobby to talk or write about the 7 Republican States that forged the State Electoral votes for Donald Trump, sent the FORGED DOCUMENTS to the NATIONLA ARCHIVES and THE SENATE despite the fact Donald Trump LOST THE VOTE in those 7 states and are NOW being investigated.

    HMMMMMMm …Talk about HYPOCRISY

    • Just wondering how many terrorist attack without any weapons,I watch fox for a hour weeknights and the trespassing of the building is discussed nightly.Joy Reid and you need to have a child if only one could figure out the process.

    • Maybe they never mentioned the “domestic terrorist attack” on the capital because there wasn’t one. You ever think of that dipshit or do you only comprehend democrat talking points. Some fucking insurrection it was, no weapons, no pre planning, no insurrection charges. Just one overcharged person for sedition that has about a zero percent chance of getting a conviction. Your fake Jan. 6 commission didn’t even interview the guy. If he was such a big player maybe they might want to talk to him. Also the fbi didn’t even search his house or look for evidence for the past year. Seems to me if this guy is the mastermind of an “insurrection” maybe they’d wanna chat with him before he gets rid of any evidence. The charge is for idiots like you and low information voters to make it seem like it’s a big deal. If you actually read the charging documents you’ll see it is a joke. He will not be convicted. But idiots like yourself will think this is some huge deal when in reality it’s shit.

      • Oh and that guy being charged with sedition didn’t even enter the capital building. He’s a 60 plus year old guy on disability. If our government was ever even close to being overthrown on Jan. 6 by senior citizens with flags than our government is a fucking joke.

    • The donkey told the tiger:
      ′′The grass is blue”.
      The tiger replied:
      ′′No, the grass is green”.
      The discussion became heated up, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, and to do so they approached the lion, King of the Jungle.
      Before reaching the clearing in the forest where the lion was sitting on his throne, the donkey started screaming:
      ′′Your Highness, is it true that grass is blue?”.
      The lion replied:
      “True, the grass is blue”.
      The donkey rushed forward and continued:
      ′′The tiger disagrees with me and contradicts me and annoys me please punish him”.
      The king then declared:
      ′′The tiger will be punished with 5 years of silence”.
      The donkey jumped for joy and went on his way, content and repeating:
      ′′The grass is blue”…
      The tiger accepted his punishment, but he asked the lion:
      ′′Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?”
      The lion replied:
      ′′In fact, the grass is green”.
      The tiger asked:
      ′′So why do you punish me?”
      The lion replied:
      ′′That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is not possible for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with a donkey, and on top of that to come and bother me with that question”.
      The worst waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn’t care about truth or reality, but only the victory of their beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense… There are people who for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand, and others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t. When ignorance screams, intelligence shuts up. Your peace and tranquility are worth more.

      Ball is the donkey. Don’t bother.

    • Include some links for your random statements so they can be vetted. I’m the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and I’ve been having an affair with your Mom since before you were born. I guess that makes me your Daddy. I’ll show you mine when you show me yours. 😂😂😂 This is what it’s like to be a super lib…If I say it then it must be true…😂😂😂

  2. We don’t silence people they do. One of the great things about free speech is you get to see how idiotic some people are. We don’t want that to go away. If we weren’t able to see the childish and bigoted takes by cry baby lefty’s we wouldn’t be able to point and laugh at their ignorant asses. More is better not less.

  3. Criticizing China doesn’t rate on social media, whereas tearing down the USA as racist does. It is all part of the CCP’s insidious plan to rip the United States apart at the seams. Problem is most of the woke SJW types are too stupid to see they are pawns in this dangerous game.
