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.”
ESPN is an inclusive company, Really? Only if you think and toe the liberal intolerant line they are …
Remember when ESPN meant Entertainment and Sports Programming Network. It has now become the liberal Entertainment and Sports Politically-correct Network)
ESPN has finally done something that they have wanted to do for quite some time, they have fired ESPN analyst Curt Schilling. At the center of this controversy was a post that showed an overweight man wearing a wig and women’s clothing with parts of the T-shirt cut out to expose his breasts. It says: “LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.” ESPN has sadly become nothing more than liberal sports TV. If someone voices and opinion or makes a statement against a conservative, that is fine. However, dare go against their liberal values and you face the PC police and get fired. I think Powerline might be on to something, Trump may want to think about adding Schilling to the ticket. A note to all the other networks, you have an opening for sports network programming, take it. Many of us who have been with ESPN from their inception are sick and tired of their politics.
Curt Schilling, a former All-Star pitcher and one of the highest-profile baseball analysts on ESPN, was fired from the network Wednesday, a day after he drew intense criticism for promoting offensive commentary on social media.
Schilling, who had worked for the network since 2010 and most recently offered analysis on “Monday Night Baseball,” was dismissed after sharing a Facebook post this week that appeared to respond to the North Carolina law that bars transgender people from using bathrooms and locker rooms that do not correspond with their birth genders.
The post showed an overweight man wearing a wig and women’s clothing with parts of the T-shirt cut out to expose his breasts. It says: “LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.”
To that, 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.”
“ESPN is an inclusive company,” ESPN said in a statement. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”
Curt Schilling comments at 38 pitches, The hunt to be offended …
ESPN claims they are an inclusive company, but they are everything but with their liberal intolerance and pandering to political correctness. Imagine inclusive to be defined as only what we believe in. Yup, really inclusive. As Powerline opines, Inclusive? Of course, as Orwell understood, “inclusive” now means exactly the opposite: it means demonizing anyone who dissents from the orthodoxy of the identity-politics left. Like someone who believes human nature is real.The reality is that most individuals in America and viewers of ESPN have the same common sense beliefs about bathrooms. So maybe the Entertainment Sports Programming Network that has become way over the top liberal is saying that 95% of their viewership should be fired too and go elsewhere? You will remember, this is the same sports channel that recently gave
Bruce Caitlyn Jenner the Arthur Ashe Courage Award over other more deserved individuals. They previous year ESPN gave the same award to Michael Sam. Hmm, I am sensing a trend here. And this is also the same PC-inclusive company that reprimanded the same Curt Schilling over calling Muslim extremists, Nazis. You mean they are not?
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?
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.
EVERYONE KNOWS YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK POLITICS AT THE DINNER TABLE, BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE WHO BREAKS THE CARDINAL RULE …
So what does one do when a progressive, lib decides to ruin Thanksgiving Day and brings up their liberal talking points and how Barack Obama is God’s gift to humanity? My first thought is lock them in the closet, maybe no one will miss them. Seriously, the answer is ignore them, change the story to puppies and kittens, because everyone has an opinion on their pet. But remember, your young liberal relative probably doesn’t have a job and has been preparing for this as they had previously received their Obama agenda talking points via the DNC. Your only hope is that your liberal relative stayed up all night playing video games the night before and might be drowsy. But if ignoring the twerp doesn’t work and he/she keeps leaving the kids table to annoy with their moronic liberal talking points, you can always turn to an article from the Washington Free Beacon, ‘How to Talk to Your Pansy Marxist Nephew at Thanksgiving.’
Legal Insurrection has a multitude of ideas and examples of how not to discuss talk turkey, when you could be eating it.
Watch below, Dana Perino’s do’s and don’ts of talking politics at Thanksgiving. I think Dana’s best bit of advice is to start drinking early . That has always served me well in the past in dealing with my LEFT-wing, lunatic brother in law. Also, don’t be emotional and don’t let your arguments get to the point of throwing food.
ARE YOU SERIOUS … Democratic Presidential Candidate Martin O’Malley Apologized on Saturday at Netroots for Saying “All Lives Matter” instead of Just “Black Lives Matter”
PUTTING THE “NUT” IN
NETROOTS NUTROOTS NATION CONFERENCE …
UNBELIEVABLE, welcome to what has become the Democrat party. Yesterday at Netroots in Phoenix, Martin O’Malley, a Democratic presidential candidate for 2016 was booed and shouted down after he made the comment, “Black lives, matter, white lives matter, all lives matter”. REALLY? So the mob does not believe that all lives matter? What kind of a sick country do we live in when saying such a thing is considered evil? But the MSM, including Fox news, is too focused on what Donald Trump said about John McCain, rather than also analyzing how a party has come to the point where only a certain color of people lives matter. Maybe the media would like to ask the Democrat candidates for president if All lives matter, and if not why not?
Welcome to black liberal intolerance where all lives don’t matter.
Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized on Saturday for saying “All lives matter” while discussing police violence against African-Americans with liberal demonstrators.
Several dozen demonstrators interrupted the former Maryland governor while he was speaking here at the Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of liberal activists, demanding that he address criminal justice and police brutality. When they shouted, “Black lives matter!” a rallying cry of protests that broke out after several black Americans were killed at the hands of police in recent months, O’Malley responded: “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.”
The demonstrators, who were mostly black, responded by booing him and shouting him down.
Later that day, O’Malley apologized for using the phrase in that context if it was perceived that he was minimizing the importance of blacks killed by police.
“I meant no disrespect,” O’Malley said in an interview on This Week in Blackness, a digital show. “That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.”
Watch below as a presidential candidate buckles to the mob and apologizes for making a comment that, all lives matter. UNREAL. What a bunch of garbage. Isn’t it sad that this country has become one where a presidential candidate is forced to apologize for saying everyone’s lives matter. Imagine what the uproar would have been had O’Malley stated the facts of black on black crime?
“I meant no disrespect. That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.”
