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.”
TED CRUZ SAYS MSM SITTING ON BOMBSHELLS AND WILL RELEASE IT TO HELP HILLARY …
Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz said on CBS’s “Face The Nation” Sunday that the MSM is sitting on explosive negative information about front-runner Donald Trump with plans to run it later in the year when many think Trump will be facing Hillary Clinton in a general presidential campaign. If the media does have some explosive news that would harm Trump that is certainly the time they would use it. Of course, the Trump supporters are crying foul and calling Ted Cruz on his dirty tricks. Really folks, after all that Donald Trump as said and continues to say, you are calling anyone out? Ted Cruz insists there is a “bombshell” in Trump’s tax returns. Even if that is true, one has to wonder in this election cycle whether it will make a difference or people will care.
Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) said on Sunday that the media is sitting on explosive negative information about front-runner Donald Trump with plans to run it later in the year to tear the candidate apart.
“I think an awful lot of reporters — I can’t tell you how many media outlets I hear, you know, have this great exposé on Donald, on different aspects of his business dealings or his past, but they said, ‘You know what? We’re going to hold it to June or July,’” Cruz said on CBS’s “Face The Nation” Sunday.
“We’re not going to run it now.”
Cruz said the media has given the front-runner “hundreds of millions of dollars of free advertising.” Every press conference Trump has is shown on every television station, he said, noting the media helped create this “phenomenon.”
“And all of the attacks on Donald that the media is not talking about now, you’d better believe come September, October, November — if he were the nominee — every day on the nightly news would be taking Donald apart,” he said.
Cruz called out the media, saying one of the reasons they want Trump to be the eventual nominee is because they know he can’t beat Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary would wallop him,” Cruz said.
“Donald may be the only person on the face of the planet that Hillary Clinton can beat.”
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?
CNN Democrat Town Hall Question Proved to be a Fraud, Planted Question to Hillary Clinton … “I can see why they gave you this.”
CNN – DEMOCRAT PARTY TOWN HALL FRAUD …
There is a reason why CNN is called the Clinton News Network and the MSM is called the Democrat-Media complex. One has to look no farther than the recent CNN Town Hall in Iowa where you can plainly see and hear for yourself that Hillary Clinton was asked a planted question. One of Hillary Clinton’s final questions was from a young student named Brett Rosengren where he said prior to actually asking the question, “I can see why they gave you this.” THEY! WHO IS THEY?
Obviously, this was a planted question. Sorry LIBS, as much as you want to try and defend the obvious, you were busted!!! So it makes you wonder how many of the other questions were the same and did the candidates know them in advance to prepare their answers. Kind of defeats the purpose of a Town Hall.
Al Jazeera America Shutting Down … Flashback: Hillary Clinton, ‘Viewership Of Al Jazeera Is Going Up In The United States’
IMAGINE THAT, AL JAZEERA AMERICA FAILED IN AMERICA, GOING THE WAY OF THE DO DO …
The Al Jazeera America will be closing up shop by April 30, 2016. The channel launched in early 2o13 and hit the airwaves in August 2013 after the purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV. That was a story unto itself when Al “Mr. Global Warming” Gore sold True TV to Al Jazeera, a media entity which was funded mostly by the government of Qatar, which is of course gets most of its money from oil. No hypocrisy there now, is there? As stated at the Daily Caller, Al Jazeera America is shutting down after less than two-and-a-half years of operation, a victim of tanking oil prices that left its owners unable to finance the virtually-unwatched cable channel.Al Jazeera, which made a massive investment in covering the United States less than three years ago, is slamming the brakes on its American operation.
Al Jazeera America, a cable news channel that debuted in August 2013, is shutting down. Employees were informed of the decision during an all-hands staff meeting on Wednesday afternoon.
During the meeting, Al Jazeera America brass said the channel’s business model was “no longer sustainable.” It will shut down by April 30, an Al Jazeera America executive told staff, saying the decision was made by the channel’s board of directors and was not a reflection of the quality of their work.
Employees also were told that Al Jazeera will pursue a new global online strategy with content delivered from the U.S. later this year.
Remember when Hillary praised Al Jazeera News and Al “global warming” Gore Sold his news network to an oil producing country?
Remember when Hillary Clinton called it real news? As secretary of state in 2011 Hillary Clinton touted Al Jazeera as a “really effective” news network with viewership that was “going up in the United States.” More from the Politico on the death of Al Jazeera America.
The Qatar-based Arab-language broadcaster Al Jazeera created an American channel two-and-a-half years ago in a bid to bring its brand to U.S. audiences that were increasingly being exposed to global media.
Al Jazeera made a mission of doing in-depth, enterprising reportage that would eschew what it saw as the frenetic, soundbite-heavy character of U.S. cable news.
But the channel failed to build up a substantial viewership here, and was available only in about 60 million American homes, compared with roughly 100 million households that have cable TV. Its ratings, which approached 28,000 viewers in primetime in 2015 and 19,000 viewers in total day, according to Nielsen, were paltry compared to the big-three cable news channels.
Al Jazeera bought its way into the U.S. market for a reported $500 million in January 2013 when it acquired Current TV, the struggling news channel co-founded by Al Gore in 2005, and took over its slot on the cable dial.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Asks Hillary Clinton What’s the Difference Between a Democrat and a Socialist … She Cannot Answer the Question
WHO KNEW THAT CHRIS MATTHEWS COULD ASK SUCH DIFFICULT QUESTIONS?
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews managed to stump Hillary Clinton during a ‘Hard Ball’ interview on the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist. Hillary’s response, was only, “I’m Not One”. The Democrat presidential candidate managed to dodge the questions, as usual. However, maybe the answer is with today’s Democrat party, there is no difference between the two. This really wasn’t supposed to be a difficult question posed to Hillary Clinton. However, doesn’t it speak volumes that she cannot and will not answer the question. This should be a red flag to those that call themselves Independents and if there are any Reagan Democrats that still exist.
Matthews said he wanted to “help” Clinton, for his audience, locate herself politically, making the puzzling statement that “nobody” uses the term “socialist” in a derogatory way. Clinton’s challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) identifies as a Democratic socialist.
“What’s the difference between a socialist and a Democrat?” Matthews asked. “Is that a question you want to answer or would you rather not, politically?”
“Well, you’d have to ask–” Clinton started.
“See, I’m asking you,” Matthew said. “You’re a Democrat, he’s a socialist. Would you like somebody to call you a socialist? I wouldn’t want someone calling me a socialist.”
“I’m not one,” she said.
Matthews asked her twice again what the difference was but Clinton spoke over him.
“I’m a progressive Democrat who likes to get things done and who believes that we are better off in this country when we’re trying to solve problems together. Getting people to work together. There will always be strong feelings and I respect that, from, you know, the far right, the far left, libertarians, whoever it might be, but we need to get people working together. We’ve got to get the economy fixed, we’ve got to get all of our problems, you know, really tackled and that’s what I want to do,” Clinton said.
Remember when DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was asked by Chris Matthews what’s the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist? She too failed miserably to answer the question. Mathews said, I used to think there was a big difference. Hmm, used to? Does that mean that even Matthews thinks there is little to no difference?
IMAGINE THAT, THE DEMOCRAT, LIBERAL MEDIA COMPLEX IS LYING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC …
Check out the story from the NY Post that debunks the media reports that there is currently a police killing epidemic. In the end, the moral of this story is: Don’t point a gun at the cops and don’t run when they tell you stop, and you’re likely to survive.
To hear the media tell it, America is in the grip of an unprecedented crime wave, an orgy of wanton murder in which heavily armed thugs randomly gun down innocent unarmed people, some of them teens, just for sport.
Except that these homicidal goons are wearing the blues and badges of American police departments.
It’s the narrative that’s given rise to the protest movement Black Lives Matter and to a growing public mistrust of the police in general. From Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., to the recent shooting of a middle-aged woman and a teen in Chicago, the body count seemingly keeps rising, exacerbating racial tensions and keeping the nation on edge. And each incident is breathlessly reported by a media determined to show that America remains deeply, irredeemably racist.
Problem is, it’s simply not true.
Last week, The Washington Post published a study of the police shootings that took place in 2015. Likely they intended the story to be shocking — as on Dec. 24, 965 people were killed by police! Instead, the report quells the notion that trigger-happy cops are out hunting for civilian victims, especially African-Americans. Among its key findings:
- White cops shooting unarmed black men accounted for less than 4% of fatal police shootings.
- In three-quarters of the incidents, cops were either under attack themselves or defending civilians. In other words, doing their jobs.
- The majority of those killed were brandishing weapons, suicidal or mentally troubled or bolted when ordered to surrender.
- Nearly a third of police shootings resulted from car chases that began with a minor traffic stop.
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.
New York Daily News Nothing But an Editorial Rag, Not News … Columnist Linda Stasi Writes that Rightwing Christian who was Murdered by the Islamic Terrorists in San Bernardino was as evil as Terrorists
IDIOT OF THE WEEK … SO NOW THE LEFT-WING LUNATIC MSM IS BLAMING VICTIMS OF TERRORISM AND CLAIMING THEY ARE AS BAD AS THE TERRORISTS?
It is no wonder that the New York Daily News is having circulation issues and now they are just into link-baiting editorials so that individuals read and comment on the hideous and misguided articles. All last week the NYDN ran editorial covers on their front page following the San Bernardino radical-Islamist terrorist slaughter that saw 14 innocent lives lost, first they did the prayer shaming cover, then the one calling the NRA chief a “terrorist” who is just as bad as mass killer and now they have outdone themselves. Linda Stasi, a Daily News columnist, has penned a piece stating that a right-wing Christian who was murdered and one of the 14 innocent people killed by Islamic terrorists, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, in San Bernardino was just as evil as they were.
Check out what a Liberal, hate-filled moron looks like who would dare compare a terrorist victim to a terrorism
They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage.
One man spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook about the other’s religion.
The other man quietly stewed and brewed his bigotry, collecting the kind of arsenal that the Facebook poster would have envied.
What they didn’t realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.
Are you kidding me? I am in agreement with the American Conservative 100% … “What kind of person writes this? What kind of newspaper publishes it?” How in the hell does one equate an individual who was savagely murdered at the hands of a terrorist to an innocent victim who was just expressing their God given First Amendment rights of free speech? Nicholas Thalasinos, a victim of terrorism, never once killed another person because of his views or opinions. However, this is the derangement of the LEFT today and the MSM where they have such hate for anyone who is Conservative or has a differing point of view from them, that they would make the comparison. UNREAL. What kind of a bottom-feeder must you truly be to defame a deceased person who died at the hands of a terrorist.
It is vile, utterly vile, that Linda Stasi and the Daily News would speak of a murdered man that way. So, what, does the Daily News now reserve the right to look into the opinions of all murder victims, and if they don’t like what they see, publish columns saying that they are no better than the man who slaughtered them?
Stasi here reminds me of the old black-humor joke: “Sure, Hitler hated the Jews. But to be fair, the Jews also hated Hitler.”
I am not a sue happy individual, but if i were the family of Nicholas Thalasinos, I think i would be bringing a defamation and libel suit against the New York Daily News.
