There simply will be no dissent from the secular progressive agenda in America.

World Series champion pitcher Curt Shilling was fired as a baseball analyst Wednesday by ESPN over a comment he made about men using women’s bathroom facilities, the New York Daily News reported.

The former All-Star player shared a meme Monday on Facebook that is being seen as “anti-transgender” by many on the left.

“A man is a man no matter what they call themselves,” Schilling wrote in the post. “I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designated for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”

The meme and Schilling’s commentary stirred up a lot of controversy in the LGBT community, prompting the outspoken former player to respond by saying if anyone was offended, “that’s your fault, all yours.”

“The latest brew ha ha is beyond hilarious,” he wrote on Facebook on Tuesday after deleting the original post. “I didn’t post that ugly-looking picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of mens and womens restrooms, period.”

ESPN released a statement on Wednesday with a different take on who was at fault.

“ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated,” the company announced.

Schilling was suspended by ESPN in August for comparing Muslim extremists to Nazis on Twitter, but considering the network’s PC environment, the high-profile politically conservative analyst was living on borrowed time since coming on board in 2010.

The Daily News noted the irony at play.

“Ironically, Schilling’s penchant for shooting his mouth off is what made him a marquee analyst,” the newspaper said. “Unlike ESPN’s current roster, which is bland by comparison, Schilling was fearless, not afraid to offer pointed criticism. He never held back.”

But Schilling finally went too far for the social justice warriors at ESPN.

There was lots of support for Schilling on social media, here’s a sampling of responses on Twitter from users who stood with him:
