Unless you’ve been under a rock, you know that Target now welcomes men into their ladies’ rooms and ESPN fired Curt Schilling for saying that “men are men.” Yes. That’s the kind of world we live in now.Kevin Scholla reported:
Mere months after the Palins supported Schilling’s remarks comparing Islamic extremists to Nazi, the former Alaska governor and her eldest daughter defended Schilling after he was canned by the liberal sports network ESPN. Schilling simply made his opinions known regarding grown men using the same bathrooms as little girls. He dealt with facts. Of course, conservative thought is not welcome in the world of ESPN, and because of Schilling’s stance, he was fired.
Many remained silent. Others blasted Schilling. But the Palins weren’t shy about backing the three-time World Series champion. Sarah Palin wrote on social media, “ESPN continues to screw up.” Bristol weighed in with “Curt Schilling got fired for telling the truth.”
But apparently, Curt said this about our defense of him:
“The embarrassing and pathetic thing is they would have to,” said Schilling while speaking on Mama Grizzly Radio this week. “Me being fired for being a conservative American was only a matter of time from ESPN”
Here’s the thing, Curt — we don’t feel obligated to defend you. It’s RIGHT to stand up and fight for the culture while the left tries to flush it down the toilet. But I don’t know why you’re saying that ESPN fired you for being conservative. Remember how ESPN came down hard these guys?
— when commentator Tony Kornheiser when he compared the tea party to ISIS
— when ESPN documentary film maker Spike Lee who said he just can’t stand interracial couples: “I give interracial couples a look. Daggers. They get uncomfortable when they see me on the street.”
— or when Lee, after he said he wanted to shoot Charlton Heston with a .44-caliber Bulldog.
— or when Lee, after he claimed Trent Lott was “a card-carrying member of the Klan. I know he has that hood in the closet.”
— or when Charles Barkley (on ESPN’s “Waddle & Silvy” radio show) said, “Well, you know, I have a thing for Sarah Palin,” he explained. “I think she’s hot. I wouldn’t vote for her, but she is hot now. … I’ve always said, I’ve got a crush on Sarah Palin. I would never vote for her, I’ll always vote Democratic. I think you’ve got a better chance of helping poor people if you vote Democratic. … But I’ll always have a thing for Sarah Palin.”
— or that time when Mike Tyson said that my mom should have her guts raped out of her. (Yeah… remember that? If not click HERE for the full story I wrote about last August.)
— or when their commentator tweeted this?
almost rammed car with palin bumper sticker. with intent.. held up..coulda been kids in car.

Remember how ESPN came down hard on those guys and fired them?
Oh you don’t?
Thaaaaat’s right. Because they didn’t.
Curt is stating an obvious truth. It’s perfectly fine for ESPN liberals (oh, but I repeat myself) to mouth off about any political topic… as long as they’re only threatening or lying about conservatives.
I, for one, think it’s hilarious that Curt Schilling’s comments about “men being men” was the straw that broke the camel’s back over at ESPN. I mean, that ESPN host laughing hysterically when Mike Tyson said my mom needed to be raped was just fine.
But pass the smelling salts if someone thinks that a person with a penis is a — gasp! — man.
Thank you Curt Schilling for making their double standard SO obvious.
And don’t worry — we don’t feel obligated to defend you. It’s just so easy to point out ESPN’s absurdity.
