Insensitive Tweet Alert
« Opened on August 26, 2015, 09:43:11 AM »

My favorite phrase.  Didn't know where to put this.  Baseball?  Yeah, sort of.  But really speaks more to the current state of political correctness and everyone's eagerness to take up the "We're all about inclusion and diversity" banner.  ESPN does it again.  Most recently, it was separating themselves from Trump after he said exactly what I believe a huge portion of America actually thinks about illegal immigrants, albeit in a much more crude fashion than most politicians would have said it.  "You can't say that about illegal immigrants.  We're all about inclusion and diversity.  We want nothing more to do with you." 

Now, far be it for one of their on air personalities to have a controversial opinion. Curt Schilling was no holds barred in his opinions long before you hired him.  Not that he's fired and probably won't be because he surprisingly tucked his tail and kissed the almighty ESPN ass.  Oh well.  coppaged and pasta'd from #Itotallyforgot. I am a gay twerker that has no balls!!!!  I also have no idea how to use the quote function to post stories, so I annoy the piss out of others.  I like male genatalia in and around my mouth.


ESPN is telling Curt Schilling to put a bloody sock in it.

The sports network announced Tuesday it was pulling the analyst and former major league pitcher from its Little League World Series broadcast team over a tweet by Schilling that compared Muslims to Nazi-era Germans.

Schilling, 48, retweeted a post Tuesday morning that said, "Only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?" Schilling later deleted the post from his Twitter feed. He retired from baseball following the 2007 season and joined ESPN's "Sunday Night Baseball" broadcast for the 2014 season.

The network said the tweet was unacceptable and that it "made that point very strongly to Curt." ESPN said Schilling was removed from the Little League World Series assignment "pending further consideration."

For his part, Schilling accepted his suspension in another Twitter post Tuesday afternoon.

Has anyone asked, "Well he is sorta right?".

Islamic terrorists aren't exactly regulars on Mr. Rodgers.

It was a spot on tweet. Less percentage of islamic terrorists that nazis(not by much), yet the numbers are staggering.

ESPN is run by a bunch of liberal shootheads.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.
