Quote of the Day: ESPN Fires Curt Schilling Because Liberals Got Offended

by Cassy Fiano on April 21, 2016

Curt Schilling, the legendary pitcher for the Boston Red Sox and ESPN analyst, has just been fired. Why? Because he dared to voice his opinion on his Facebook page. Schilling is a vocal conservative, and always has been. He’s supported George W. Bush in the past, and has talked about possibly running for Senate. Now, the issue du jour is that of transgender bathrooms, and Schilling shared a meme that sparked a HUGE controversy. Easily-offended liberals began their usual caterwauling, Schilling responded on his blog calling them out for being easily offended… and then, ESPN fired him.

1. The meme the world decided to rally behind that I posted months ago. The meme that some of you clowns and more of you spineless looking to be offended folks turned into something it was not. Every one of you gutless cowards, when ‘calling me out’ or calling me a racist, every one of you left out the only word in that entire meme that mattered. You had to, otherwise you’d have had to go elsewhere to find offense and create something out of nothing. Let me help you now. All of you fraudulent media folks, you lazy ass “don’t actually want to work for a story” clowns. The word you left out? the ONLY word that mattered? EXTREMIST. That word being omitted creates two completely different posts with two very different meanings. I don’t dislike or hate Muslims, or people of the Islamic faith. Ask my friends that are both. But then again you all knew that, but when you omit the word extremist you create a person that doesn’t exist and have a story with traction, even if it is a complete lie.

2. This latest brew ha ha is beyond hilarious. I didn’t post that ugly looking picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of mens and womens restrooms, period.

He continued on:

You frauds out there ranting and screaming about my ‘opinions’ (even if it isn’t) and comments are screaming for “tolerance” and “acceptance” while you refuse to do and be either.

YOU’RE the ones making it the issue. I don’t care, if you ask me about any of the topics it’s likely (much to the chagrin of many) I’ll answer with my opinion.

There are things I have deeply held beliefs in, things I have that are core to who I am, things I am passionate about. If you ask me about them it’s likely I’ll give you a passionate answer, whether you like that answer or not is completely up to you. I am not going to give you answers to make sure you like what I say, let the rest of the insecure world do that.

But let me reiterate, I don’t care who, what, where or why you are who you are. I care about people and how they treat others. You will NEVER in your lives find a single person who’s met me/knows me who would ever say I treated them as anything other than a human. None.

Wouldn’t you assume that all of you offended folks would have heard of me treating people the way you needed me to treat them, to be what you so desperately want me to be?

If people want to create stories or impressions where there are none, and you want/need to get offended by them that’s on you.

Here’s the meme that liberals got butthurt over:

trans meme

According to the Huffington Post, this was the commentary that went with it:

“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.”

So Schilling expressed his own opinion, and liberals lost their minds. Because apparently, it’s only liberals that are allowed to express their opinions.

ESPN didn’t mind, for example, when Tony Kornheiser compared the Tea Party to ISIS. They think running flattering pieces on Fidel Castro is A-OK. And who can forget their publicity stunt with Caitlyn Jenner? All of those things were acceptable, because it was a bunch of liberals spouting liberal ideas. But as soon as a conservative does the same thing — and on his own time, for that matter — then he has to go? Schilling has been suspended by ESPN before, for comparing ISIS to the Nazis. Why was that a problem, but Kornheiser’s remarks were not?

The argument could be made that ESPN is a sports organization, and therefore, political discussions shouldn’t happen. But the problem with that argument is that, first, Schilling didn’t say anything on ESPN about this. He posted the meme on his own Facebook page. Second, ESPN has no problem with political commentary as long as the commentary is liberal, not conservative. It seems pretty clear, then, that if Schilling had said something supportive about letting men into women’s bathrooms under the guise of “trans rights”, ESPN wouldn’t have had any problem whatsoever. If they don’t mind Kornheiser comparing Americans to ISIS, then how is it they can legitimately claim that Schilling reposting a meme on Facebook is unacceptable?

Ultimately, Schilling hit the nail on the head. Liberals whine about tolerance constantly, but they absolutely refuse to be tolerant of anyone else’s views. They’re all about diversity, but only superficially. When it comes to diversity of opinion, though, liberals just can’t stand that.
