ESPN Analyst Curt Schilling's Worst Facebook Posts

ESPN Analyst Curt Schilling's Worst Facebook Posts

Blog ››› ››› ERIC HANANOKI

ESPN is apologizing for a tweet by ESPN baseball analyst and former pitcher Curt Schilling comparing Muslims to Nazis, calling it "completely unacceptable." A Media Matters scan of Schilling's Facebook page found ESPN has a bigger problem than one tweet: Schilling has repeatedly demonized Muslims as killers, shared a picture calling Hillary Clinton a drunk murderer, and suggested civil rights leaders like Rep. John Lewis aren't patriotic.

In a since-deleted tweet, Schilling posted the following image comparing Muslims to Nazis.

ESPN public relations responded to the Schilling tweet by writing: "Curt's tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company's perspective. We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration." 

Schilling's tweet is hardly an aberration. He regularly posts incendiary material on his Facebook page, which he has linked to from his verified Twitter account. Schilling also posted a similar image on his Facebook page in October 2014 to the Hitler tweet he deleted. 

Here are some lowlights:
