Curt Schilling Goes Off on ESPN and Vocal Minority on Louder With Crowder

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.

The Blaze:

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 Fires Baseball Analyst Curt Schilling Fired Over Transgender Offensive Social Media Post

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.

Transgender_schilling

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?

hillary-clinton-jail

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?

Keith Olbermann Gone from ESPN Again

Keith Olbermann and ESPN have parted ways yet again …

As reported at THR, television personality Keith Olbermann and ESPN are parting ways for a second time. It turns out that Olbermann is even too liberal for what I like to refer to now as LESPN, liberal entertainment sports programming network. ESPN is looking to cut $100 million from next year’s budget and $250 million from 2017′s budget. According to BI, network executives had asked Olbermann to ditch his leased Times Square studio, where his program is produced for ESPN2, and either move to the network’s headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut or to Los Angeles, However, the biggest sticking point appeared to be that  as a part of an extension of his 2 year deal, the network wanted him to stop offering commentary on his program. What, Olbermann not allowed to spew his venom? No way, that was a deal breaker. But when one thinks about it, opinion commentary and criticizing sports hardly seems like a money maker for those in the sports entertainment industry. Especially when these days ESPN is not the only game in town.

Olbermann2

Keith Olbermann is exiting ESPN once again.

The television personality, who rejoined the sports network in August 2013, won’t be renewing his deal to anchor his ESPN2 program. The news follows a THR report on July 1, noting that ESPN management floated an ultimately unworkable caveat: that Olbermann cease engaging in commentary.

“Keith is a tremendous talent who has consistently done timely, entertaining and thought-provoking work since returning to ESPN,” the network said in a statement. “While the show’s content was distinctive and extremely high quality, we ultimately made a business decision to move in another direction. We wish Keith nothing but the best and trust that his skill and ability will lead him to another promising endeavor.”

Press Release from ESPN:

“Keith is a tremendous talent who has consistently done timely, entertaining and thought-provoking work since returning to ESPN. While the show’s content was distinctive and extremely high quality, we ultimately made a business decision to move in another direction. We wish Keith nothing but the best and trust that his skill and ability will lead him to another promising endeavor.”

Although I admit there is very little that I agree will politically with Keith Olbermann, he did have some solid commentary when it came to sports and the actions of sports athletes. None could I agree more that when he spoke out against domestic violence and asked viewers to boycott the NFL Draft because of  Jameis Winston and not watch the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight because of Mayweather’s long past of domestic violence charges,

Bob Costas Says of ESPN Awarding the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage to Caitlyn Jenner … “It is Just a Crass Exploitation Play, Its a Tabloid Play.”

BOB COSTAS GOES THERE AND NAILS IT …

Bob Costas is going to catch hell for this and be labeled a transgenderist bigot. In a radio interview with Dan Patrick on The Dan Patrick Show, Bob Costas was asked what he thought of Bruce Caitlyn Jenner winning the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage. Costas called it a PR stunt, a crass exploitative, tabloid play. I have not always agreed with Coastas’ opinions, especially when it comes to his liberal views on the Second Amendment, however, I have always enjoyed him as a sports announcer since his play by play days with the Spirits of St. Louis of the ABA and he positively, absolutely explains the Caityn Jenner situation perfectly.

However, it strikes me that awarding the Arthur Ashe award to Caitlyn Jenner is just a crass exploitation play. It’s a tabloid play. In the broad world of sports, I’m pretty sure they could have found—and this is not anything against Caitlyn Jenner—I’m pretty sure they could have found someone who was much closer to actively involved in sports, who would have been deserving of what that award represents.

Only some one like Costas, a liberal who has built up a tremendous amount of sports capital, could get away with making such strong opinions that speak for many. Lesser folks would get destroyed by the LGBT hit squads. Bob Costas wished Caitlyn all the happiness in the world and all the peace of mind in the world, which any civilized person would do. However, that does not mean that Caitlyn is the only human being in the world and is deserving of every award and have it pushed down our throats. The media is in the business of exploitation and that is exactly what ESPN is doing in a “crass” way.

Dan Patrick agreed and followed up with, “I was with you. It felt a little too reality show, tabloid show that all of a sudden lets jump in with Caitlyn Jenner.  Bob Costas went on to say, “It feels lets lets buy into the Keeping up with the Kardashian culture that has over taken a good part of the cultural landscape. That’s a train that left the station no matter how you and I feel out it.”  Sadly, he is correct.

Dead Spin: Costas expresses his disapproval of ESPN’s decision to give its made-up award to Jenner … This is all an “exploitation play,”

I wish Caitlyn all the happiness in the world and all the peace of mind in the world.

However, it strikes me that awarding the Arthur Ashe award to Caitlyn Jenner is just a crass exploitation play. It’s a tabloid play. In the broad world of sports, I’m pretty sure they could have found—and this is not anything against Caitlyn Jenner—I’m pretty sure they could have found someone who was much closer to actively involved in sports, who would have been deserving of what that award represents.

That’s not to say that it doesn’t take some measure of personal courage to do what Caitlyn Jenner has done, but I think that ever year we look across the landscape of sports, and we find prominent people and kids in high school and amateur athletes who I think more closely fit the description of what they’re looking for or should be looking for there. And I think this is a play to pump up audience the way lots of things are put on television, to attract eyeballs, not because of the validity, but because of whatever the kind of gawker factor is.

Previous Winners of the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage. We can see with the last two choices that ESPN has gone the route of the LGBT and is in fear of losing sight as to what they are and who their fan base is. Just a reminder to ESPN, the “S” stands for SPORTS.
