Episode #41: Jon Gruden Canceled Over Michelin Tires

Download this episode

Eric starts off the episode by ripping into one of the most unbelievably stupid articles ever written: A furious screed by a nobody elitist named Steve Chapman, who took to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to declare that those who criticize “coastal elites” must really hate beaches, and claims that Republican states on the Gulf of Mexico are also technically “coastal elites.” Jacob then covers a truly disturbing and enraging story about a male student in Loudoun County, Virginia, who identifies as a girl by simply wearing a skirt, and then used this as an excuse to enter the girls’ restroom and rape a female freshman; the school district then covered it up by quietly moving him to another school, only for him to rape again. Meanwhile, when the father of the first victim tried to bring attention to this incident, he was arrested and charged with a crime after the Loudoun County school board called the cops on him. For the main topic, the Right Take guys address the latest victim of Cancel Culture: Former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden, who resigned after the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times collaboratively exposed decades-old emails from Gruden featuring locker room trash talk that is now retroactively being called “racist” and “homophobic.”
