ESPN has fired former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling as a color commentator on its baseball broadcasts because he reposted this meme on Facebook:
LET HIM IN! To the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgemental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die!!!
And because Schilling saw fit to post this meme, the left-wing media basically called Schilling a narrow minded, judgemental, unloving racist bigot who needs be fired by ESPN. Tonight they got their pound of flesh. He had been in the Left’s sights since posting a tweet likening Islamic terrorists to Nazis last September which earned him a suspension from the network.
From where I sit, if one has had undergone sexual reassignment surgery and went from being a man to a woman then by all means go to the ladies’ room. But ordinances in places like Houston and Charlotte are so broad as is the definition of transgenderism that a man who merely “identifies” as a woman can use the ladies’ room and vice versa is utterly absurd and devoid of common sense. But when there’s a political agenda to advance absurdity reigns supreme and common sense is hate speech and Schilling is now a casualty of said agenda. ESPN wouldn’t have a problem if Curt Schilling had spoken out against the bathroom bill in North Carolina, supported the Palestinians or said Hillary Clinton should be elected President. But because Schilling expresses views contrary to those of ESPN they are deemed offensive and he must be banished.
Of course, ESPN can hire and fire as they see fit. In turn, because of the manner in which they are now making their personnel decisions, I see fit to no longer watch ESPN. This means no more ESPN Sunday Night Baseball. Frankly, ESPN’s self-righteousness had been making a program I had been watching for more than 25 years barely watchable. I have a feeling I won’t be the only one tuning out ESPN because Curt Schilling has the now radical view that men should stay in the men’s bathroom.
God help us and, frankly, I don’t give a damn if ESPN finds that offensive.
