Outspoken legendary Boston Red Sox pitcher and ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling appeared on“Breitbart News Patriot Forum” on Sirius XM (SoundCloud below) and he didn’t hold much back.
“It was apparent to me early on that if you wanted to go off topic as a sportsperson, you had to go off topic left or you were going to get into trouble,” Schilling said.
You could say things in whispers in the locker room once. There were people who quietly agreed with him.
“One of the things I got early on, people would walk up to me… We had the green room in ESPN, which I kind of turned it into a locker room where everything was on the table, you could make fun of anybody’s mom and all the things that go with that, like in a baseball locker room. But I had people come up to me and go [whispering] ‘Hey, I’m with ya. I’m a Republican, too.’ It was like a deadly serious thing, like, we didn’t talk… like religion on the table was a much easier discussion than who you voted for.”
The biggest racists are on ESPN.
“Some of the most racist things that I’ve ever heard come out of people that are on the air at ESPN. There are some of the biggest racists in sports commentating, and you take it for what it is. You know who they are. You know what they are. I like that they are openly because then you know who they are. You know that they exist.”
“You’re a racist if you don’t like Barry Bonds, because he’s black,” Shilling said.
Schilling told Breitbart that the restroom photo and comment that got him fired had nothing to do with transgenders. It’s about the safety of restrooms. His son is active with the LGBT community and fully agreed.
Schilling elaborated via Newsday:
“The memo that was sent out more than once was about they wanted on air-talent to focus on sports. To me that means focus on sports unless you want to talk about something that is part of the liberal agenda.
“You listen to Stephen A. Smith, and Stephen A. Smith was the guy who said that Robert Griffin didn’t play quarterback for the Redskins because he’s black. No, Robert Griffin didn’t play quarterback for the Redskins because he [stunk]. … Tony Kornheiser compared the Tea Party to ISIS. I don’t know any planet where those are sports topics. But I don’t care. It’s OK. I think those conversations need to happen. But as soon as you go to the flip side, the right side, there are repercussions for not talking about sports.”
During the interview with Breitbart, he lamented the loss of respect for the police and the criminals behind ferguson. In the third part of the interview, Schilling expressed his views on war mongering, not having wars at all, homelessness of military, Donald Trump as clown and leader, Hillary’s emails and her ties to worldwide special interests, and how he feels about leaving baseball.
Schilling said he loves to talk about baseball but now he’d like to talk freely. He thinks he has something to offer and wants to be involved in the things that affect the world.
