In Case You Were Wondering:
Yes, Curt Schilling Is Still A Vile Person Overflowing With Hate & Mind-Numbing Stupidity

Have you been wondering if Curt Schilling is still a vile racist transphobic boneheaded Nazi sympathizer who harrasses school shooting survivors and thinks lynching journalists would be "awesome"?

Well, you're in luck because I have the answer.

Yes! The transphobic former ESPN employee, the welfare queen who was given $75 million of Rhode Island taxpayers' money and pissed it all away because he's a incompetent businessman, and the sedition-promoting cheerleader for white supremacists continues to broadcast his stunning ignorance into any available open microphone. 

And now this proud member of the QAnon Cult, who promoted Steve Bannon's plan to scam $25 million from MAGA donors, who publicly defended Trump after video surfaced of the serial rapist hitting on a 10-year-old girl (and appeared to admit to ogling his 14-year-old daughter's friends in the process), and the guy who is clueless and terrified of science and logic, is now posing as a historian and foreign policy expert on Fox.

Quoting a few comments to this tweet: "Zelensky is Mussolini seems a stretch" . . . "Did he go through a DeSantis school system?" . . . "Schilling shilling for Putin".

Outkick, which is owned by Fox Corp., has hired the guy who no longer trusts Fox's (his employer) news reporting because the network has "headed to the FAAAAAR left". He will host The Curt Schilling Baseball Show, which describes itself thusly: "Questioning the consensus and exposing the destructive nature of 'woke' activism, OutKick is the antidote to the mainstream sports media that often serves an elite, left-leaning minority instead of the American sports fan."

Maybe Aubrey Huff can be his guffawing sidekick cough-talking racial slurs in the background. 

So why has Schilling agreeed to work for a "FAAAAAR left" company? Isn't he a massive hypocrite for doing that? (Again, yes.)

On Thursday, Eric Hananoki of Media Matters posted a voluminous collection of hateful and stupid postings from Schilling, who self-identifies as a Christian (although when he recently tweeted "Biden is Hitler", he was a Jew).

When I first read these, I thought they were from the teachings of Jesus. You might be mistaken, too.

Schilling's conspiracy theories: QAnon, school shooting conspiracy theorist, "the global vaccine hoax"
Schilling endorsed and promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory in a 2018 Facebook post, writing of a QAnon video: "I started to research this about a month ago and was sent this today. You will not be able to stop watching once you start." He has also worn a QAnon shirt with its slogan while doing Facebook videos.

Schilling promoted the conspiracy theory that the mass shootings in Parkland, Florida, and Sandy Hook, Connecticut, were hoaxes. On February 26, 2018, he shared a link to a now-deleted article which embedded text that called Sandy Hook a "hoax" and purportedly included videos which "contain eyewitness testimony that prove the Parkland High School shooting did not happen as they told us." Schilling defended himself in the comments section from criticism, saying, "Tell me something doesn't seem weird?"

Schilling shared a now-deleted thread from a Parkland conspiracy theorist who claimed that "this stinks to high heavens" and "why are the interviews that do NOT agree with the one shooter or the narrative that CNN is pushing being heard?" On Twitter, he also promoted a conspiracy theory falsely claiming that Parkland mass shooting survivor David Hogg was a supposed crisis actor.

Schilling is an election denier who has defended the January 6 insurrectionists and called for the country to "Declare Martial Law, arrest the liars (Schiff, Pelosi, Shumer) the treasonous idiots (Schiff, Clinton) and put them on trial AND a complete re-vote." He has pushed the conspiracy theory that Dominion helped steal the 2020 election.

Schilling tweeted that the Democratic National Committee "murdered Seth Rich."

Schilling has promoted the conspiracy theory that the Clintons have murdered numerous people.

Schilling called the COVID-19 vaccine "the global vaccine hoax that's killing people."
Schilling repeatedly expressed dislike for Outkick's owners and corporate cousin Fox News
Schilling has frequently tweeted his dislike of the majority of Fox News and the Murdochs. Here are numerous examples from his Twitter account:

"I said it before, the Murdoch sons are HARD CORE Hollywood liberals. Once dad was out of the picture the transformation began." [September 16, 2020] "Not really considering the murdoch children are hard core hollywood liberals. Only a matter of time. IMO it's time we @BreitbartNews started our own news channel." [November 27, 2018]

"Tonight put me over the hump. Fox has joined the gaggle of things I cannot trust to be objective. No worries, just disappointing." [November 6, 2018] "Fox is also a very involved member of the Fake News crowd ICYMI." [September 14, 2018]

"Think about this conceit. Rupert Murdoch thinks he matters enough that him wanting someone gone from the WH is actually news." [August 15, 2017]

"I've pretty much stopped caring what they think. Outside of Kilmeade, Carlson and Baier they are headed to the FAAAAAR left." [August 23, 2017]
Schilling's bigotry: Anti-trans and anti-Muslim posts; blaming Black people for slavery in the U.S.
Schilling was fired from ESPN for promoting an anti-trans post in 2016 "which had a man in ripped women's clothes under a caption that read: 'Let him in to the restroom with your daughter or else you're a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!'"

Schilling has repeatedly demonized Muslims as killers and compared them to Nazis.

Schilling on slavery: "African slavery was created by blacks, on blacks, to blacks, for blacks. They were sold by blacks, to blacks, and to whites."

Schilling has called Jewish philanthropist George Soros "the puppeteer of the Democratic party." (There is a long and violent history related to the antisemitic puppet master trope.)

Schilling compared conservatives to Jewish people in 1930s Germany, tweeting: "Biden is Hitler mid 1930s rousing the German people on the evils of the Jewish people. With 'Jew' being the modern-day conservative American who believes in God and Country (regardless of sex, creed or color mind you)."

Schilling promoted a large collection of Nazi memorabilia on Facebook in August 2015.
