ESPN’s Max Kellerman Attacks SEC Football Fans, Slurs Them As ‘Easy To Propagandize’

ESPN’s Max Kellerman and host of “First Take” said Thursday SEC football fans were especially “susceptible to very low-quality information and easy to propagandize,” when arguing that teams boycotting practice in protest for social justice would bear no impact on the November election.

SEC fans, Kellerman said, were “almost immune to facts,” because they uniformly adhere to “alternative facts” instead.

“If they stay in their kind of propaganda silos, like the Fox News propaganda silo, it would matter what happened.”

Kellerman, who had already been calling for boycotts to promote progressive issues, made his comments as major leagues sports in the United States come to a standstill. So far, players and teams in the NBA, MLB, MLS and the WNBA refused to play and practice to make a statement on racial justice.

Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech writes however, that as sports become politicized and further entrenched in the modern day culture wars exploding from under the surface suffocating every facet of American life, they threaten to drive away the dedicated fans who used them as an outlet to escape the plagues of a polarization present everywhere else.
