Seriously? ESPN Crank Compares The Tea Party To ISIS

Guest post by Aleistar

Sports used to be sacred – free from political jibber-jabber.
Not any more…
While the Republican party was sleeping, far left cranks infiltrated the sports world.

Liberals in media have been unfair to the Tea Party since the very beginning so dumb attacks like this one are hardly a surprise. Still, one has to wonder why no one ever seems to suffer any consequences for saying such an outrageous thing.


ESPN crank wonders if the Tea Party is like “ISIS trying to establish a caliphate.”

ESPN’s Tony Kornheiser asks whether Tea Party is like ISIS

ESPN personality Tony Kornheiser drew a connection between the Tea Party and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) during his radio show on Friday.

The “Pardon the Interruption” co-host was speaking with Huffington Post political reporter Howard Fineman about the House Speaker race when he asked whether the Tea Party movement was trying to establish a caliphate in Congress.

“Are they like ISIS trying to establish a caliphate here?!” Kornheiser said on ESPN 980, as first reported by News Busters.

“Yes! Yes! That’s a very good analogy,” Fineman responded. “Without the violence, obviously, but yes, they are a rejectionist front. They don’t want to legislate.”

Kornheiser went golfing with President Obama earlier this month.

That last detail is a big surprise, huh?
