This is one of those cases where we’re so glad to have the video because we thought for sure people had to be overstating what they saw. But no; here’s ESPN analyst J. A. Adande responding to criticism of China’s human rights violations by saying there’s some “cognitive dissonance” going on — who are we to criticize China when some states are conducting an “assault on voting rights.”

Yes, showing an ID to vote is exactly like being in a forced-labor camp. Dumbass.

From the "I GOT MINE" school of human rights.

Y’all really posted this?

Not even mildly surprising. China told Disney to get their minions in line, and Disney obliged.
This segment was likely written in China. I’m not kidding.

Genocide vs not being able to get a sandwich within 100 yards of a polling location. Same thing.

Georgia has more days of early voting than Delaware, New York or Massachusetts

This is the enemy in plain sight. Is this real or a simulation? Incredible.

Holy shit, an @espn analyst just said live on the air that he can’t judge China for its genocide because American red states have voter ID laws. https://t.co/oO0jbCwl1m

Dear God … “Director of Sports Journalism, Northwestern University.”
Always enjoyed watching Around The Horn growing up, was my favorite ESPN show, watched it nearly every day after getting home from school.
Today was the first time I watched in years and was immediately reminded why I've watched little to no ESPN programming the last few years

This can’t be real….
— Coach Richard Russo (@CoachRusso2001) February 5, 2022
This is simply inexcusable.
— Chris Vetetoe (@ChrisVetetoe) February 5, 2022
I saw and heard that. ESPN is busy making genocide acceptable. Is it time to permanently turn off ESPN in our household? I think so.
— Ajay Paul (@AjayPaul_) February 4, 2022
ESPN is owned by @Disney who loves China! If Disney can make a buck, they will no matter what they have to say to do it!
— jeff (@2049_btc) February 4, 2022
This is just unbelievable. Just enjoy the games, because China’s no worse than the U.S.
Gotta hear both sides! NBC covers Beijing Olympics by ‘just casually working as a mouthpiece to push Chinese Communist propaganda’ https://t.co/TyNtXLLh7g
