STARNES: I Stand With Memphis Meteorologist Joey Sulipeck
Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
Joey Sulipeck is a beloved meteorologist at Fox 13 in Memphis. Born and raised in the Mid-South. A good Christian, family man. He’s also a passionate fan of the Memphis Grizzlies.
The other day he made national headlines by calling out Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors. Green was behaving like a knuckle dragger. That’s what Sulipeck wrote.
Evan Barnes, a reporter for The Commercial Appeal, launched a national attack on the weather guy – all but accusing him of spreading a racist trope.
Emotions are high right now among teams and fans over the play in question but this right here? @joeysulipeck – unacceptable.— Evan Barnes〽️ (@evan_b) May 8, 2022
Memo to @FOX13Memphis – talk to your mans and check him. This is over the line and I won’t stand for it. This is bullsh-t. pic.twitter.com/RJsLDenByh
That’s what the woke leftists in journalism do these days — knowing that such an attack – even if untrue – will stick for a long time.
It’s despicable and cowardly behavior — and the reporter – Evan Barnes – should be ashamed. But it’s been my experience that woke journalists have no shame.
By the way, Sulipeck has since apologized and deleted his Twitter account.
STOP! Why are you still using ATT and Verizon Wireless? They promote the cancel culture mob. That’s why I’ve made the switch to Patriot Mobile, America’s only Christian Conservative wireless carrier. Click here for info!
“Anyone who knows me knows what I am. Race is never an issue to me. To anyone who was offended, I apologize but there was no ill intent,” he wrote.
Fox 13 says they are investigating the incident and it’s unclear whether the longtime weatherman will return to the airwaves.
Sulipeck’s only misstep was to apologize. The cancel culture thugs have no interest in an apology. They want to destroy you. Never apologize. Ever.
That being said, it’s time to send a message to The Commercial Appeal and their woke reporting staff: set the record straight and apologize to Joey Sulipeck and his family.
If the newspaper’s editors refuse, I recommend launching our own cancel culture movement — and you can start with your subscription to The Commercial Appeal. Although, most of the city has already done that.
