Former ESPN sports analyst Curt Schilling has a few choice words for his old employer.
After Schilling was fired from ESPN for merely posting an internet meme about transgender bathroom policies, which would allow biological men into women’s bathrooms, the baseball star is firing back.
In an interview with Breitbart News, Schilling said that ESPN employs many racists and despite claiming they have no bias, they are intrinsically biased towards a liberal viewpoint.
“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 told Breitbart.
“Some of the most racist things that I’ve ever heard come out of people that are on the air at ESPN,” Schilling said. “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.”
Schilling also said he would have fellow ESPN employees privately agree with him on political issues.
“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,” Schilling said to Breitbart.
“But I had people come up to me and go [whispering] ‘Hey, I’m with ya. I’m a Republican, too.’ But they had to whisper. It was like a deadly serious thing,” said Schilling. “Like religion on the table was a much easier discussion than who you voted for.”
