Now what, ESPN? Does your host who said horrible things about Tea Party get punished like Curt Schilling?

Will ESPN go after an analyst who compared the tea party to the Islamic State the same way they went after Curt Schilling for his comments on Islam?

ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” co-host Tony Kornheiser spoke with Huffington Post editor Howard Fineman on ESPN 980 in Washington D.C. Friday about Paul Ryan’s quest to become House speaker.

Why they were discussing this during a sports show is anyone’s guess but Fineman suggested the speaker needs to act like a dictator to get things done and keep those pesky tea partiers in their place which led Kornheiser to compare the tea party to the murderous terrorist group.

“Are they like ISIS trying to establish a Caliphate here?!” Kornheiser asked.

“Yes! Yes!” Fineman agreed. “That’s a very good analogy! Without the violence obviously, but yes, they are a rejectionist front.”


Social media blasted both men and demanded answers from ESPN on his they would handle this in light of its suspension of Curt Schilling for talking about actual ISIS.
