Curt Schilling: ESPN has gone 'way over the edge on the left' politically
Curt Schilling has been gone from ESPN for 10 months. But the former MLB star is still throwing heaters at his former employer — especially as he ponders a run for the U.S. Senate against Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass).
ESPN has gone "way over on the edge on the left" politically, Schilling said during an interview with conservative radio host Chris Stigall of Talk Radio 1210 WPHT in Philadelphia.
Schilling said the network's liberal bent has only gotten worse since he was dumped last year for commenting about North Carolina's transgender bathroom law,he said. Schilling would prefer ESPN come clean about its own political biases.
"I don't care that they do it. What I care about is that they lie about it. ESPN fires me for apparently being intolerant because I was actually commenting around the fact men should use the men’s room and women should use the women’s room. Apparently, that was ... the straw that broke the camel’s back. Then they come out and act as if they are a tolerant group — and they’ve gone full mental since then. I mean they’ve gone way over the edge on the left, having a tribute to Obama after his last day in office, that gave me acid reflux. … And them doing a special on Fidel Castro, which sickened to me to no end. ("Baseball Tonight's") Eduardo Perez is on that team at ESPN and he’s a Cuban. He basically acknowledged the fact that Castro was Cuba’s version of Hitler. This wasn’t a compassionate man. ...This was a horrible human being."
Go fuck yourself, Curt. I know a place where you can shove that bloody sock.
