If you work for a mainstream media company, be prepared to censor yourself. Don’t even think about stepping out of line when it comes to the conventional SJW wisdom, or else you might find yourself in the unemployment line. In the case of Curt Schilling, I doubt we will have to start a GoFundMe for him anytime soon. No matter what, he’s going to be very well taken care up. Still, that’s beside the point. The crux of this issue is that media personalities are allowed to spew whatever hateful progressive nonsense they like, but if one of their colleagues even thinks of giving a rebuttal, they will get fired in short order…even if it’s posted on their personal social media.
In case you’re not yet up to speed on the Schilling situation, here’s a primer, courtesy of The New York Times…
Curt Schilling, a former All-Star pitcher and one of the highest-profile baseball analysts on ESPN, was fired from the network Wednesday, a day after he drew intense criticism for promoting offensive commentary on social media.
Schilling, who had worked for the network since 2010 and most recently offered analysis on “Monday Night Baseball,” was dismissed after sharing a Facebook post this week that appeared to respond to the North Carolina law that bars transgender people from using bathrooms and locker rooms that do not correspond with their birth genders.
The post showed an overweight man wearing a wig and women’s clothing with parts of the T-shirt cut out to expose his breasts. It says: “LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.”
To that, Schilling added: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”
The picture he showed? You can see it here. I’m not going to post it myself, simply because I don’t need that sort of trouble around here at the moment, especially with a lot of rad fems eyes focused on me as of late. Yes, it was an image that was meant to be in your face, but then again, aren’t these trans activists and their progressive allies are also in everyone’s face with their advocacy? They routinely call people who disagree with them racists, bigots, “transmisogynists,” and sexists, all while accusing them of hate speech. But these people consider themselves exempt from any of their own rules. It’s the same hypocrisy we see time and time again from these frauds.
Now, they’ve even infected ESPN. I say now, but anyone who has been following the sports broadcasting colossus over the last couple years knows they have been headed in this direction for quite some time. Matt Walsh is a crybaby when it comes to Donald Trump, but he hit the nail right on the head with his tweet earlier this evening…
When a sports network becomes an enforcer of radical progressive gender theory, you know the culture is really lost

He’s a little fatalistic for my tastes, but after tonight’s episode with Schilling, it’s hard to argue with his conclusion.
