Former MLB pitching great Curt Schilling goes off on ESPN after his firing and the Leftist hypocritical double standard at ESPN. Schilling was basically fired for saying why do we have a urinal in a men’s room, if it were not meant for those with a penis. Period, end of story. But thst is not the way it works in today’s political correct world where certain bands of minorities get to act like the thought police and the Gestapo. During his interview Friday with Steven Crowder, Schilling made a rather interesting and profound comment which explains 100% why we all have to deal with such nonsense like this today. Schilling asked, “when did people believe that the world is supposed to conform around them? Instead of you conforming to the world you live in. Or shaping yourself to the world you live in. People now expect the world to shape itself for you.”
Schilling then went on to say, “we have allowed the vocal minority to shut up everyone else.” And thus Curt Schilling was fired from ESPN. So you think, that’s no big deal. But you will think its a big deal when it becomes you.
Retired Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling responded Friday to being fired from ESPN for sharing a controversial meme on transgender bathroom laws, telling conservative personality Steven Crowder that “nothing” he said was transphobic.
“I responded to a Facebook post that someone else had made. I responded to it and my response was basically men’s rooms were clearly designed for men, who stand up when they go pee and women’s rooms were not,” Schilling said. ”Anyway, that turned out to be ‘transphobic.’”
Schilling was fired from EPSN Wednesday after he ignited uproar with a Facebook post about the “basic functionality of men’s and women’s restrooms.” The legendary pitcher told Crowder that the post “wasn’t public,” but said he stood by his message.
“My point was, what the hell was a urinal made for?” he rhetorically asked. “Listen, men’s rooms were made for men to go to the bathroom standing up and women’s rooms were not. … But again, now I became transphobic.”
“Here’s the thing: This is how we have gotten to where we are. We have allowed the vocal minority to shut up everyone else,” Schilling said. “And now it drives all of our political agendas.”
“Here’s the thing: I don’t care — if there was a transgender march down my street to have transgender bathrooms, I wouldn’t go out and watch it and I wouldn’t care that they are having it!” the former Boston Red Sox pitcher said. “I want homeless veterans to have homes. I want orphaned and abused kids to have homes. I want the homeless problem in this country to be solved. There are so many other things that are actually legitimately scary and dangerous, like ISIS.”
Liberal Bastion of Sports ESPN Addresing Baseball Analyst Curt Schilling’s Comments that Hillary Clinton Should be “Buried Under a Jail.”
WHY WE LOVE CURT SCHILLING …
It would appear that the Entertainment Sports Progressive Network has its panties in a wad again because one of their analysts dare say something derogatory about a liberal. This time they are reviewing former Boston Red Sox great Curt Schilling, that of the 2004 ALCS game 6 “bloody” sock fame, for his comments on Tuesday with 610 sports radio in Kansas City, MO where he said, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should be “buried under a jail.”You can listen to his comments HERE.
The one thing Curt Schilling is, besides being one of the best big game MLB pitchers, is outspoken. Well Curt, I am not sure about buried under a jail, but I am certain that she should be in a federal prison some where for her actions regarding State Department classified emails on her private server. One thing is for certain, if it were any of of us who did what Hillary Clinton did, we would have already been indicted, tried, found guilty and in prison. Look for the liberals at ESPN to reprimand or fire Schilling. I wonder if it wold be different for Kurt if he changed his name to Caitlyn?
ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling appeared to violate the network’s guidelines when he told a radio station that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should be “buried under a jail.”
ESPN said Wednesday, “We are addressing it” and would not go into further details.
Schilling, however, said jokingly at the end of the radio interview that he would “probably get fired.”
The former all-star pitcher made the controversial comments Tuesday with 610 sports radio in Kansas City, Missouri.
Schilling, who has been known for his outspoken political comments, was asked if Clinton should go to prison for accusations that she put classified State Department emails on a private server.
“I hope she does. If I’m going to believe, and I don’t have any reason not to believe, that she gave classified information on hundreds if not thousands of emails on a public server after what happened to General Petraeus, she should buried under a jail somewhere,” Schilling said.
Remember last year when Curt Schilling got in trouble with ESPN for comparing Muslim extremists to Nazis? That got him suspended. Really? So you mean radical Islam is not like the Nazi’s? REALLY?
Senate Republicans State No Hearings & No Votes for Obama’s Supreme Court Pick Just Like Joe Biden Stated in 1992
SORRY DEMOCRATS, THE REPUBLICANS ARE JUST DOING WHAT JOE BIDEN HAD PREVIOUSLY SAID THE DEMOCRATS WOULD DO TO GEORGE H.W. BUSH …
Washington, DC is full of hypocrites and this time the Democrats are about to eat a great big hypocrisy sandwich. Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced with the solidarity and united front of Republicans that there would be no hearings and no votes for any Supreme Court justice nominee until Obama is out of office. Obama, Biden, Schumer and the rest of the Democrats can all claim that they are outraged and this is a disgrace to the process, but they are all on record in the past of saying and doing the same thing. Actually in 1992 Biden stated as the head of the judiciary committee, “The Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling hearings on the nomination, until after the political campaign season is over.” As opined at Hot Air, Democrat Chucky Schumer is at a loss for words when trying to spin Biden’s comments. That’s a first.
We are going to hold the spineless McConnell and Senate Republicans to Mitch’s recent comment … There will be a political revolution if he goes back on these words.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told a group of staunch House conservatives there isn’t “a snowball’s chance in hell” that he will back down from his opposition to confirming a Supreme Court justice before a new president is elected.
Senate Republicans on Tuesday united behind an official position on how to deal with President Obama’s expected nominee to replace the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia: no hearings, no votes and no new justice until Obama is out of office.
“Presidents have a right to nominate, just as the Senate has its constitutional right to provide or withhold consent,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a morning floor speech. “In this case, the Senate will withhold it.”
That declaration was underscored after McConnell held a closed-door meeting with Republicans sitting on the Senate Judiciary Committee. All 11 GOP panel members subsequently signed a letter pledging not to hold hearings on any replacement for Scalia until a new president is inaugurated.
Their decision not to act, they said, was “based on constitutional principle and born of a necessity to protect the will of the American people.” But Republican senators have also been emboldened in recent days by past statements from Democratic senators arguing against confirming the judicial nominees of Republican presidents in election years.
In particularly heavy rotation Tuesday was Vice President Biden’s 1992 suggestion, made when he was a senator and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that the panel ought to “seriously consider” not holding hearings on an election-year Supreme Court nominee.
Two Faces of Democrat Chucky Schumer … FLASHBACK: In 2007, Schumer Called For Blocking All Bush Supreme Court Nominations (VIDEO)
The lying, duplicitous, double-talking Democrat Chucky Schumer was against lame duck presidential SCOTUS appointments, before he was for it …
So Schumer was all for the status quo of the balance of power of the SCOTUS in 2007, why not now? Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer took to the Sunday talk shows to state that the Republicans had no right to block Barack Obama from appointing a new SCOTUS following the sudden death Justice Antonin Scalia over the weekend. Scumer was appalled that the GOP would do such a thing. REALLY? It was just in 2007 while GWB was in his final 18 months of his presidency that Schumer stated the exactly same thing. The hypocritical Schumer vowed not to confirm any justices for the remainder of Bush’s term in office. But of course this is different, because an Obama nominee would be a liberal ideologue.
“We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances … Considering the Constitutional harm and dramatic departures that are in store if those few are joined by one more ideological ally … I will do everything in my power to prevent one more ideological ally from joining Roberts and Alito on the court.”
Now all of a sudden Schumer is whining and crying a river of obstruction when they , namely he, stated to do the same. Schumer stated in his ABC interview, we Democrats didn’t do it. REALLY?
During a Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer decried the intent of many Senate Republicans to prevent President Barack Obama from appointing the successor to deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
But less than a decade ago, Schumer advocated doing the same exact thing if any additional Supreme Court vacancies opened under former President George W. Bush.
Almost immediately after Scalia’s death was announced Saturday evening, Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates began arguing the appointment of his successor should be left to the next president. Schumer lamented this outlook as pure obstructionism.
Hmm … Schumer claims the Democrats have never done this before … can you say BORK?
REALLY DONALD, DON’T YOU BRING YOUR FAMILY ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL? WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?
Hmm, once again GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump applies a double standard as he mocks other while he does the same thing. Donald Trump mocked his GOP rival Jeb Bush for bringing his brother, former President George W. Bush, to help campaign. Why wouldn’t Jeb bring his bother to a red state like South Carolina? Sorry Donald, its just good marketing, you should appreciate that. In fact, if Donald had a former president as a brother he would be doing the exact same thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Jeb Bush supporter, I believe he represents too much of the “mushy middle” of the Republican establishment, however, let’s call it like it is. Trump has his entire family on the campaign trail all the time. Sorry, the longer this race goes on, the bigger idiot and fool Trump is sounding like. Trump, keep it classy, if that is even possible.
Hey look, Trump has his entire family on the Campaign Trail but that’s different
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is mocking rival Jeb Bush for bringing his brother, former President George W. Bush, to help campaign.
“Don’t fall asleep when I mention the name,” Trump said, when he brought up Jeb Bush during a rally in Louisiana on Thursday.
“I see he’s bringing his brother in now. He tried the mother, who’s a very nice lady, I’m sure, but he tried the mother. That didn’t work out so good,” he said. “Now he’s bringing in his brother.”
Former first lady Barbara Bush recently campaigned with her son in New Hampshire ahead of the primary there. Now, his brother will be hitting the campaign trail in South Carolina to help bolster support.
Trump said he’d refrain from saying too much until after the former president makes a statement, adding “there’s plenty to say about what happened.”
“Especially that last three months, and especially getting us in that quicksand. You know, we got in quicksand,” he said.
Trump has in the past called Jeb Bush an embarrassment to his family, which includes two former presidents.
DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ Says South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley Choice as GOP Response to President Obama’s SOTU Address Demonstrated the Party’s Lack of Diversity
WHEN IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY GOING TO WISE UP AND GET RID OF DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ?
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to Barack Obama’s final State of the Union speech. That was not lost on Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and neither was once again put her foot in her mouth again and making an ass out of herself. Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed the Republican Party’s choice of Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address demonstrated the party’s lack of diversity. HUH? What a hateful, vile individual. It would seem that lost on the DNC chair is the fact that the Democrats are running nothing bust pasty white candidates. Diversity? Meanwhile the GOP has both men and women seeking a presidential nomination, two Latinos, one black and a dude born in Canada. Oh that’s right, the Democrats have Hillary Clinton as their standard barer for woman and diversity, the same woman who stood behind, protected and enabled her husband Bill Clinton to sexually harass woman and worse.
It would appear that not only does Debbie downer not know the difference between the Democrat party and Socialism, she also is definition challenged when it comes to the word diversity. Actually Debbie, you know what demostares a lack of diversity, running a bunch of lily white liberals!
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed the Republican Party’s choice of South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address demonstrated the party’s lack of diversity.
Oops! Has she looked at the Democratic lineup of presidential candidates lately?
“It’s pretty clear that Nikki Haley is being chosen because the Republican Party has a diversity problem,” Wasserman Schultz, who’s also a Florida congresswoman said in a conference call, according to The Hill, which reported:
Socialist Bernie Sanders Calls Out the Liberal MSM for Giving Donald Trump Too Much Attention … Boo Hoo, Liberal MSM Not Giving Liberals Enough Air Time
SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS ISN’T A BRAIN SURGEON, BUT HE DID STAY IN A HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS LAST NIGHT …
Oh the irony, Socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo and whined over the media coverage that was being given to Donald Trump. Sanders stated that the MSM was giving Trump too much media attention and was only doing so because Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks. Hmm, because backing a socialist agenda and making silly “socialist” comments don’t seem to catch the attention of a capitalist media, go figure?
Sanders called out Cuomo and stated that all the attention to Trump was “more of an indictment of the media, than of Trump”. Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls. However, Sanders has a point, but this is not anything different than they have ever done. But normally, the MSM is just paying attention to ridiculous liberal crap that is of no consequence as Rome burns.
Isn’t it comical though to see a liberal, and in this case a socialist, complaining about how much media coverage the liberal and bias MSM is giving to a Republican candidate? I cannot remember ever seeing such a thing. Of course, Sanders is acting as if all the media coverage for Trump is positive. But for liberals/socialists to complain the liberal MSM is not giving them enough air time is priceless.
Bernie Sanders says Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks because they get media coverage — and blamed the press for falling for the real estate developer’s act.
“I’ll give you one example,” Sanders said in an interview that aired Thursday on CNN’s “New Day.” “A recent study showed on ABC evening news, Trump over a period of time got 81 minutes of time. Bernie Sanders got 20 seconds. Now you tell me why.”
Sanders continued, “I think it has to do with the fact that Trump is very smart. He knows that media is not so interested in the serious issues facing this country. They love bombastic remarks. They love silly remarks,” he told host Chris Cuomo. “I think this is more of an indictment of the media than it is Trump.”
But Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls.
“I don’t see it,” Cuomo said. “Do we cover him more? Yes. Why? He’s number one in the polls. He’s highly relevant. He drives the discussion.”
But Sanders — who is trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton 34% to 50% in a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday -- interrupted Cuomo to say that Trump is on top because he is able to get his message out due to all of the media coverage.
But that is what socialism is all about, everything is the same. It is giving irrelevant people and issues the same amount of attention and time as the most important and pending ones. Don’t worry Bernie, you will be given a participation trophy after Hillary Clinton wins the Democrat primaries.
Ted Cruz Blasts Washington Post Cartoon of His Age 5 and 7 Year Old Daughters as Monkeys … The Post Says Kids are “Fair Game” is Even Worse
TALK ABOUT THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF THE LIBERAL MSM AND THE DEMOCRAT MEDIA COMPLEX …
If you ever need any reminder that there is a political double standard when it comes to the media reporting on Democrats and Republicans, one needs to look no further than the WAPO and their disgusting cartoon in going after the young children of GOP presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz. The WAPO thought it perfectly okay to portray Cruz’s two young children as toy monkeys in a cartoon and stated it was perfectly fine to use them like this and called the, “fair game”. Needless to say in the firestorm and backlash that ensued following this tasteless and malicious depiction of Ted Cruz’s daughters, the WAPO removed the cartoon.
This is the same liberal media that will attack Donald Trump for going too far and yet they think its fine to say children are fair game. REALLY?
Sen. Ted Cruz launched an “emergency” appeal seeking to raise $1 million in 24 hours in response to a Washington Post online editorial cartoon depicting his two young daughters as dancing monkeys.
The Republican presidential candidate also criticized the paper for its “tasteless attack” on his children.
“My daughters are not FAIR GAME,” he wrote in a fundraising email sent late Tuesday. “I’m sickened … I knew I’d be facing attacks from day one of my campaign, but I never expected anything like this.”
Cruz accused the “liberal media” of attempting to “attack and destroy me (and my family) by any means necessary.”
The WAPO removed the tasteless cartoon with a lame apology.
Editor’s note from Fred Hiatt: It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.
UPDATE II: This is a new low even for the dirt-bag MSM …
Just curious, is everyone away that the daughters of Ted Cruz are age 5 and 7? I think the media should be asking Hillary Clinton if she thinks this is ok.
Also, i want you to imagine, just imagine if the media had ever done this to Barack Obama’s daughters and what the fire storm would be? People would have lost their jobs.
UPDATE: Loring Wirbel, Board Member for the ACLU of Colorado Resigns After Urging People to Kill Supporters of GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump
GOOD RIDDANCE YOU LIBERAL HATE MONGER … MORE LIBERAL INTOLERANCE ON DISPLAY.
Loring Wirbel, a board member for the ACLU of Colorado has resigned after urging people to kill supporters of presidential candidate Donald Trump. Really, some one at the ACLU would promote hate speech and try taking away some one’s free speech and liberty to force their own upon them. I guess we see what the ACLU has become these days. Sorry, but making such threats is not covered under free speech. This LIB is not being sought after be police because he is a LIB. Imagine if some one on the RIGHT has made the same comment and replaced Donald Trump’s name with Barack Obama? Who thinks that the Secret Service would not be paying that individual a visit? Also, you can see the further liberal media bias by their story below referencing he Daily Caller as a right-leaning online newspaper. Trying to make some point that by pointing out the lunacy of Wirbel and his hate speech of inciting violence is some how diminished because the media outlet that outed this LIB was conservative. One would ask why CBS-Denver was not covering this because you know if the rolls were revered they would have.
A board member for the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado has resigned after urging people to kill supporters of presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Loring Wirbel’s Facebook post was captured by The Daily Caller – a right-leaning online newspaper.
The post states, “The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, ‘This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before Election Day.’ They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force…”
“It’s almost like, you will think the way we think, you will do what we want you to do, or we eliminate you?” says Steve House, chair of the Colorado Republican Party.
It’s the second threat against Republicans in Colorado in one week.
Colorado ACLU Board Member: Shoot Trump Voters ‘Before Election Day’ … From the LIB who Called Trump a Hate Speech Felon
JUST CURIOUS, HOW DO YOU THINK THE MSM WOULD REACT IF DONALD TRUMP OR ANY REPUBLICAN MADE SUCH A COMMENT?
Isn’t it the unhinged, lunatic LEFT that is against guns and gun violence? Hmm, then why would Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, call for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman? Where is the liberal tolerance? Where’s the love? Better than that, this moron calls Trump a hate speech felon and yet is calling for people to shoot people in the process, seriously? Who’s the felon?
Isn’t the liberal left double standard of intolerance remarkable? These are the folks that rail about free speech, yet they look to prevent Donald Trump from having his. Then this is the same bunch that look to take the guns away from law abiding citizens while they make threats of gun violence and call for voters to be shot. Unreal and SICK!
Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, called for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman.
Comparing Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, Wirbel wrote in his Facebook page:
The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, “This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day.” They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force, as Laurie would say.
Just curious, how is one allowed to make such a threat like this and a call for violence? Sorry, this goes beyond free speech.
