Curt Schilling has a reputation for making strong comments.
It’s nothing new; professional athletes have big personalities and thus big opinions.
But it seems there are some too timid to endure the former Big Leager’s comments, most notably the cowards at ESPN.
According to Breitbart:
On his Facebook page, the former Major League Baseball pitcher posted an image of an overweight man dressed as a woman with a harsh caption. “Let him in!” the caption says, “to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!!!”
Schilling added, “I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”
The post quickly circulated across the Internet, landing on multiple social networks and blogs.
While there were many in support of Schilling’s statement, it obviously enraged the leftist agenda.
Now it seems ESPN is getting pressure from their liberal overlords and are coming down hard on Schilling.
As for ESPN, the sports network said it is taking Schilling’s Facebook post “very seriously.”
A spokesman for the network added that they are “in the process of reviewing it.”
“In the process of reviewing it?” Since when did ESPN become an Orwellian dictatorship? Schilling didn’t say this on camera, nor did he claim it was the views of the network.
He made a personal comment on the issue, on his personal Facebook page. How is it ESPN business to police what he says when he’s off the clock?
You might suggest ESPN has the right to protect itself from inflammatory remarks from their notable employees, but this extends beyond the transgender issue. They have suspended Schilling in the past for making a comparison between radical Islamist terrorists and German Nazis.
Really? ESPN is sticking up for terrorists? Maybe Schilling is better off leaving this network and find a home where American values are respected.
We can all do better than ESPN.
UPDATE: ESPN has now fired Shilling. Cowards.
