Retired Red Sox pitcher and ESPN broadcaster, Curt Schilling, compares Muslims to Nazis in tweet

Former Red Sox pitcher and ESPN sports analyst Curt Schilling is jumping on the Islam bashing train.

Someone must have forgot to mention that Schilling’s very own US government has committed more crimes against humanity, and has been directly involved in more wars, and deaths of innocent civilians, than any other country or terrorist group since…Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

Schilling knew he messed up by trying to erase the tweet…but as with all things internet and social, once it was out in the open…it was game over for Schilling.

Via RT…

In the tweet, Schilling wrote,

The math is staggering when you get to the true #’s.” The words were written above a graphic of Hitler, which included the caption: “It’s said ONLY 5-10% of Muslims are extremists … In 1940, ONLY 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?”

The tweet, posted Tuesday, was deleted following heavy backlash from Twitter users. Schilling also took it off his Facebook page, though the incident then began trending on Twitter.

Schilling was on assignment covering the Little League World Series for ESPN before they announced his suspension.

Curt’s tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective,” the network said. “We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration.”

Schilling was hired by ESPN as a color commentator, which means he assists the play-by-play announcer by offering analysis, anecdotes and humor between plays. He was also known for being outspoken during his baseball career, when he had run-ins with sports journalists, management and fellow baseball players.

Nevertheless, Schilling later apologized on Twitter, tweeting to one user that it “didn’t come across in any way as intended or interpreted,” and that it was “100% my fault.” He acknowledged to another that the fact was incredibly false.

But this tweet is not the first post in which Schilling compared Muslim extremists to Nazis. On August 3, he shared a meme on Facebook showing a group standing over a mass grave, with the caption “Nazis,” and another scene of a group standing over mass graves, captioned “Islamic Extremists.”

Here are two more social media instances where Schilling compared Muslims to Nazis and associated the faith with violence.
