Scott Van Pelt Rant Encapsulates Media Smugness Towards People With Conservative Values


So ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt is angry, which is nothing new to anyone who has had the pleasure of watching his show. He has now expressed his frustration with “the hicks” who have chosen to cut their cable because of ESPN’s pro pervert stance on just about every issue both sports related and non-sports related.

Why Van Pelt felt the need to vent his frustration at people who make these kinds of personal decisions with their own money is beyond me. Perhaps he’s afraid that when ESPN realizes that he doesn’t generate the money for ESPN that they pay him, he’ll be next out the door, in another mass firing like last year’s, that’s sure to come.

That still doesn’t explain his ire at the cord cutters though. Maybe he should be angry at himself and his company for sticking with a failing message; instead of crying ‘foul’ when people are tuned out by it.

Here is Van Pelt in his own words

If you truly wanna boycott the NFL and you wanna boycott ESPN, the notion that some guy sitting out there, or gal, and they decide, ‘you know what, I’m gonna cut my entire cable package because ESPN gave an award on a made-up show in July because there’s no sports, to a woman who used to be a man, so I’m now not gonna have any cable TV at all and I’m gonna sit around at night and read books by candlelight like olden times because of that,’ that’s not happening. And if you did that, then you’re so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope.

“to a woman who used to be a man”

Word to the wise, that’s a massive problem for many people, most of whom are too scared to express it publicly for fear of ostracism of the worst kind, combined with a fear of being dragged to court for violating someone’s ‘human rights’ with ‘hate speech’. So Mr. Van Pelt, most people too afraid to speak up, will do what this society allows them to do, in order to keep themselves away from its moral depravity. Cutting the cord is one such thing and ESPN is paying dearly for it.

“so I’m not gonna have any cable TV at all…” 

This is so funny. Passive aggressive people (like Van Pelt seems to be) are the worst when it comes to anger issues. They play off their anger with what nowadays passes as comedy, just like the above; which has to be comedy because Van Pelt simply can’t be serious about this. He is speaking about cable TV as if it’s a human right. As if it’s a basic human need in order to keep us breathing. If ESPN execs are thinking like this guy, then that company is in even more trouble than I thought.

Van Pelt is having a hard time grasping that ESPN is not a utility service. The customer doesn’t just have to sit back and accept when ESPN decides to promote so called social justice issues, which contradict their religious values. They can cut the cord if they want and after a month without it they’ll realise that they never needed it in the first place. It’s bad for ESPN, probably worse for Van Pelt, but they made their choice and the customer has the right to make theirs.

‘and I’m gonna sit around at night and read books by candlelight like olden times because of that”

Like olden times? The above demonstrates what people like Van Pelt really think of common folk and their utter disdain for traditional values. Reading books by candlelight never killed anybody Mr. Van Pelt. In fact, it made them far more intelligent than the airheads today who only ever absorb what TV talking heads like you, put in their heads for decades. Now that bubble is bursting and you’re mad.

‘then you’re so dumb that I can’t even pray for you…’

Thank God you can’t pray for these people. They probably wouldn’t want whatever god you pray to, which condones transgender culture, to intervene in their lives. I know I don’t. It’s funny how Van Pelt weaves in prayer to suit his own narrative, trying to gain the moral high ground, while prayer (Christian) is probably not looked at too highly at his place of work.


The biggest issue people don’t realise is that there is no society with free speech. It’s always going to be a cultural battle between right and wrong. When Catholicism dominated Western Culture, everything was done to suppress opposing ideals; until it wasn’t; leading to the demise of Christendom. Now the shoe is on the other foot and moral relativism rules the day, fighting hard to suppress opposing values.

The relativists throughout history, used fictions like freedom of speech to overthrow the then status quo. Now that they’re the status quo, free speech no longer has a place at their table. The sooner “conservatives” realise the truth of this, the better it will be for them.
