Curt Schilling Throws Heat at Disney and ESPN

Curt Schilling was the type of ballplayer who defined toughness. His legendary “bloody sock” from Game 6 of the 2004 American League Championship Series attests to his grit.

The retired flamethrower isn’t the type to give in to political correctness either.

In 2016, Schilling was fired from his analyst position at ESPN for a sharing a Facebook meme and affirming a simple truth: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves.” ESPN deemed the comment “unacceptable” for not adhering to the company’s “inclusive” values.

Yet, ESPN has allowed “SportsCenter” host Jemele Hill to remain employed despite this Twitter rant:

In an interview this morning on “Fox & Friends,” Schilling explained how ESPN’s double-standard is driven by a political agenda:

Disney and ESPN have stopped giving all pretense of objectivity. They support a very intolerant, exclusive, liberal, progressive agenda.

Everything that the left does is based on your race, your sex, your sexual preference, your color, your religion, who you worship or who you don’t. It’s about identity politics.

The entire interview can be viewed here.

Of course, ESPN’s politics are alienating viewers who just want to watch sports. Reports show the cable sports giant is losing 10,000 subscribers per day and advertisers are taking notice.

At the end of the day, ESPN and parent company Disney may find out aligning with Jemele Hill’s political ideology over Curt Schilling’s is bad for business.

    Tragically ESPN and Disney care little for truth and logic…now MONEY, that’s another matter.

    Consumers with integrity: Vote where they listen.

    He is 100% accurate. The people who lecture us about intolerance and hate are some of the most intolerant and hateful people in this country.

    Jemele Hill’s Twitter rants look similar to what one would find in an average YouTube comment chain. There is nothing special about her childish opinion.

      Yes, but her opinion should not have more validity than someone else’s opposite opinion. Why should one person get fired for their opinion when someone else doesn’t get fired for their opinion? One is just as hurtful as the other. Political correctness says it’s fine to hurt the people that we disagree with, just not the ones we agree with. That’s unfair. How about the Left, who says they love all people and want to be inclusive, actually live up to what they say and not hurt anyone. Instead, it’s okay to hurt any person who is on the other side. That’s hypocrisy. Just like the Feminists hold up every successful Democrat woman and tear down every successful Republican woman. How about upholding the success of every woman? I thought Feminists were for women. Oh, yeah, except for females in the womb and Republican, Conservative, or Christian women. More hypocrisy.

    Hypocrisy is the hallmark of the Left. Tolerate them and their deviancy and mental illness, but be darned if they’ll afford you the same courtesy.
