Whether he was on the field or in front of a camera, Curt Schilling has never had an issue with providing a candid opinion. After being fired by ESPN for expressing his views on North Carolina’s controversial transgender public bathroom law, the former analyst and major league baseball pitcher unloaded on his former unemployer.
In an interview with Breitbart News Daily on Sirius XM, Schilling delivered a couple of scathing remarks about ESPN, and painted an unflattering picture which calls into the question the network’s left leaning preferences, and racist agendas by some of its personalities.
“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.
“Some of the most racist things that I’ve ever heard come out of people that are on the air at ESPN,” he continued. “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.”
When asked to provide more specifics Schilling added, “You listen to Stephen A. Smith, and he 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 [was bad].
“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.”
ESPN has not provided a response to Schilling’s commentary.
