Michele Tafoya has further elaborated on her departure from NBC Sports.

The longtime “Sunday Night Football” sideline reporter already announced that she is co-chairing the Minnesota gubernatorial campaign of Republican candidate Kendall Qualls, an Army veteran and businessman.

Tafoya joined Tucker Carlson on Wednesday to discuss political issues — such as critical race theory in schools — that she would be further addressing now that she has left mainstream sports broadcasting.

“It’s been on my mind for quite awhile, Tucker,” Tafoya said of leaving NBC. “No, NBC did not force this. This has been on my mind. I’ve been waking up every day with a palpable pull at my gut that my side, my view, my middle-ground moderate viewpoint, is not being represented to the rest of the world.


I appreciate Michele's bravery and honesty. It can be difficult for anyone to explain their truth. Her appearance on Tucker was refreshing.

There will be some who will not tolerate her just because she was on Tucker, you know, the small minded!

From the link in the OP:

“Imagine leaving a high-profile job over a made-up issue,” Hill tweeted. “Does Michele Tafoya even know what CRT is? Does she have kids in school being taught CRT? Can she provide any examples?”🤣

Like others, Tafoya is ignorant of anything to do with race. Race is what makes her uncomfortable, not CRT. She doesn't know what CRT is. Anything concerning race is interpreted by her, and others, as CRT.

This is what she's talking about:

"My son's first best friend was a little African-American boy. They were inseparable. Get to a certain age they start having what's called an affinity group, which means you go for lunch and pizza with people who look like you…"

I don't know what an affinity group is, but I do know that going for pizza with kids that look like you is not CRT.

I believe Michele is saying: Her son had a best friend and until the school and the frickin left stuck their nose into all this racism crap their wasn't a problem. It is wanting to go back to segregation for pity sake!!!!!

I think your imagination is getting the best of you.

It's lunch and pizza, not segregation. I believe I can think of reasons for this. Can you? Of course, we could just look it up, but I feel pretty safe that affinity groups are not an evil leftist plot meant to take us back to Jim Crow. Lmao.

Regardless, it's not CRT. Doesn't matter. Won't stop people like her from calling everything related to race CRT. My neighbor has a little mutt named Blacky. CRT! Lol.

Bottom line: The left want EVERYTHING to be about race, as it keeps them alive!

Hill is a race-baiting loon. Which means she'll fit well with CNN.

Democratic leaders are afraid of politicians like Tim Scott because he has the potential to be a great uniter. Hatred and division are the foundation of their party. They will always try to divide us by this, that and the other thing. Their plan has worked well for now but there are cracks in their foundation because people of all races are getting sick of their despicable tactics.

Yep. And she has no problem making assassination jokes regarding sitting Presidents.

Feb. 2019: During Prez Trump's State of the Union speech, she said in a Tweet: "Nah, she (Dem. House Rep. AOC) gotta yell: GETCHO HAND OUT OF MY POCKET". This is a reference to what one of Malcolm X's assassins yelled before his murder as a signal.

Fear Porn keeps minority voters from abandoning them.
Gosh darn it, calling them thugs for wearing a hoodie has nothing to do with it or calling them welfare queens
