Curt Schilling’s Thought Crime

I wondered how long a countermoonbat like Curt Schilling would last at rigidly leftist ESPN, given what they did to Hank Williams Jr. If not for some craven back-peddling, the answer would be: not much longer.

The sports network announced Tuesday it was pulling the analyst and former major league pitcher from its Little League World Series broadcast team over a tweet by Schilling that compared Muslims to Nazi-era Germans.

The observation that the thought cops at ESPN found impermissible for Schilling to express on his own Twitter feed (now deleted):

schilling-tweet

They can’t argue with what he said — not in light of ISIS, al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, et cetera — but they don’t have to. They just have to punish him and elicit his repentance to make sure everyone knows that you don’t go around shouting 2 + 2 = 4 in public if you want to keep your job.

Schilling had the courage to keep pitching as his shoe filled up with blood in Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS. But now he doesn’t have what it takes to stand up to the liberal weenies comprising the Powers That Be:

His Sunday Night Baseball gig ought to be secure for a while. I sure hope so, considering what he paid for it in terms of self-respect by selling out.

Consider what it means that in our society it is not permissible to point out, on your own Twitter feed, that the people responsible for this…

…might be a threat we need to take seriously.

There was a time when no American would have put up with being muzzled by authoritarians. Now even the few who speak out are soon reduced to cringing apologies. As a culture, we are dying a truly contemptible death.

Although the totalitarian dhimmi moonbats running ESPN are vile beyond my powers of description, don’t bother turning the channel. ESPN stands out as more intolerant than most, but the entire establishment is controlled by the same sort of people, as we witnessed when it abruptly became impossible to buy a flag representing the South at any major retailer almost instantly after the Rebel Flag was targeted for eradication by leftists.

    9/11 was too long ago now for people to hear the unvarnished truth. Maybe when Iran turns New York into a giant crater someday then and only then will people finally get it.

    Maybe.

    Doesn’t matter what he said, since he wussed out and now says he was in the wrong.

    Yes 9/11 was nearly fourteen years ago. Only Conservatives and superstitious Christians live in the past. Nothing to see now, move along.
    Progress means ignoring history and forgetting everything that you ever learned in life. Today we’re at war with Eurasia, tomorrow it might be Eastasia.

    Hopefully, those who support Schilling’s message, will tune out ESPN. What Schilling wrote was true, and the truth, in the Land of Obama, cannot be spoken. Blindly repeat after me, “Islam is the Religion of Peace. Mohammad is not a pedophile. Allah hates ye heretics.”

    Kudos to Curt. He found away to escape broadcasting the LLWS, an incredibly boring event, and to escape a week in Williamsport , an incredibly boring place. Well played.

    Curt is wrong with the math….it’s saying ONLY 5-10% of muzzies are extremists.

    I presume the main reason Schilling is so reviled by the “Left” is because he highlighted that only 7% of the Germans during Hitler’s reign were Nazis. That inconvenient fact goes contrary to the Left’s anti-white propaganda which asserts the entire White race are Nazis — or at least potential Nazis. The “Left’s” paranoia knows no bounds. Had he not brought the Nazis into his critique of Muslims, Schilling’s tweet would NOT have gained notoriety.

    Another good thread from a sincere author. Yeah, I remember when we did not put up with the power tripping control freaks. It was before they put metal detectors in public buildings and made people submit to that. It was before “safety checkpoints” and other police malarkey that we submit to. Now even commenting on a blog or Facebook post is used as grounds by some employers to fire people. What a crock.

    Yeah, as if we’re not at war with East Asia now. The fact is, East Asia has been at intense war with us for at least 70 years.

    I don’t know how much money this guy has, but if someone’s a millionaire and set for life they raelly need to just sack up and stand by their words. What kind of lunatic apologies for stating a fact. Hell, his statistic is understating the threat, since terrorist sympathizing and abetting is even more widespread among Muslims.

    A good example of why Trump is so popular. He wouldn’t come crawling on his hands and knees begging for his job. He’d tell ’em to go to hell.

    It may be said that 5 – 10% of Muslims are extremists but the real number is closer to 40%. Now apply that to what Schilling said and realize how dire the circumstances really are.

    My only problem with this is he apologized for telling the truth, THAT IS BULLSHIT!
