Curt Schilling fired for being conservative, but these employees did WORSE!!!

ESPN hypocritically fired three-time World Series champion and six-time All-Star pitcher Curt Schilling for sharing his conservative values. The image that got Schilling fired showed an overweight man in revealing clothes wearing a blond wig. The caption read, “Let him in! To the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!!!” Schilling posted the image after North Carolina’s House bathroom bill passed last month. There are numerous examples of others on ESPN saying much worse and they are still employed. I guess it’s not so much how you offend, but who you offend in the politically correct safe space of ESPN.

Curt Schilling

From Young Conservatives:

1. Tony Kornheiser. Kornheiser still co-hosts his leftist propaganda sports program Pardon The Interruption with fellow approved opinionsayer Michael Wilbon, despite the fact that in October, he compared the Tea Party to ISIS – on ESPN Radio. Speaking with Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman, Kornheiser said of Tea Partiers in Congress, “Are they like ISIS trying to establish a caliphate here?!” No problem. Kornheiser was suspended for two weeks back in 2010 for ripping an outfit worn by Hannah Storm: “She’s got on red go-go boots and a Catholic school paid skirt…way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now. She’s got on her typically very, very tight shirt.”

2. Kevin Blackistone. Professor Blackistone regularly appears on ESPN; in 2013, he called the National Anthem a “war anthem” and ripped the “military symbolism embraced in sports,” explaining that it was “time for people to back away.” Blackistone stated, “You are conflating a war anthem with a simple game. And when you have military flyovers and all the other military symbolism that goes on in sports, I think, you’ve got a problem.”

3. Lou Holtz. Speaking about then-Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez, Holtz stated, “Ya know, Hitler was a good leader too.” No suspension. So, to be clear, comparing radical Muslims to Nazis is a no-no, but comparing a college coach to Hitler is a-okay.

4. Stephen A. Smith. Smith spoke about former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice beating his then-girlfriend, and stated, “We also have to make sure that we learn as much as we can about elements of provocation. Not that there’s real provocation, but the elements of provocation, you got to make sure that you address them, because we’ve got to do is do what we can to try to prevent the situation from happening in any way. And I don’t think that’s broached enough, is all I’m saying. No point of blame.” He was suspended for one week. Schilling suggesting that women be protected from men invading their restrooms, however, was a fireable offense.

5. Max Kellerman. In the aftermath of the same incident, Kellerman told a charming story about how when he was dating his now-wife, they were both drunk; she slapped him, and he slapped her back. That carried a short suspension. Kellerman is now back on the air regularly.

And who can forget ESPN host Dana Jacobson screaming “F*** Jesus” while intoxicated? Nice. She was suspended for all of one week over that outburst. ESPN is becoming a media sewer hole where conservatives are systematically weeded out. Schilling is better off without these depraved bigots. It doesn’t matter that Schilling was right. Schilling added, “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. 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.” I couldn’t agree more. ESPN then fired Schilling, announcing, “ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.” Yeah, inclusive for everyone except conservatives. Asked about the controversy on local radio, Schilling explained, “To be in a place where people actually believe I’m a racist or I’m transphobic says to me that something has gone horribly askew somewhere.” No wonder our culture is dead. The left has wormed their way into every crevice of our society now… you can’t even watch a ballgame without being subjected to transgender propaganda.
