ESPN Liberal Logic

ESPN “suspended” former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling for tweeting a meme comparing “radical Muslims to Nazis.”

This was the “offending” tweet…

ESPN 10

ESPN released a “statement” upon suspending Schilling:

“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.”

The “tweet” was offensive to whom, the “radical Muslims?”

Factually speaking, there were “approximately” 6.5 million formal members of the Nazi Party in 1940, out of a total German “population” of well over 80 million, a little over 8 percent. That number of “members” did not fully represent the level of “support” for the Nazi regime in Germany in 1940, of course.

The same is true in the “radicalized” Muslim community. A very small percentage of Muslims globally are formal members of “terror” groups; it is difficult to estimate precise numbers due to “secrecy,” although their total membership “runs” into the hundreds of thousands. The “Iranian Revolutionary Guard” alone has 120,000 members, and some estimates have placed the “ISIS” membership at above 200,00.

That “terrorist” membership is the “tip” of the iceberg. A “huge” percentage of worldwide Muslims are “radicalized.”

If you calculate the number of Muslims globally who (1) believe that 9/11 was not committed by Muslims; (2) think that Shariah law ought to be implemented; (3) support terrorist attacks; or(4) have a positive or neutral attitude toward ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, Osama Bin Laden or any other terrorist group or terrorist, the number calculates out to well above 800 million “radicalized” Muslims.

PolitiFact’s ridiculous attempts to counter these calculations, “cherry-picking” their own, far “narrower” standard of radicalization, led them to the “awkward” position that 19 percent of “Muslims” in various countries, including the West, are “radicalized,” some 182 million Muslims worldwide.

As Schilling wrote, “the math is staggering when you get to true numbers.”

But ESPN has no “interest” in true numbers, because “true” numbers are awkward. Unsurprisingly, ESPN “refused” to explain why Schilling’s tweet was “unacceptable.”

Is it because “radicalized” Muslims are somehow “better” than Germans who weren’t “formal” Nazi Party members?

Is it because the “genocidal” Iranian regime or the “barbarians” of ISIS are somehow less “objectionable” than the “Nazis” themselves?

It is “worth” noting that Schilling did not say that all Muslims should be “tarred with the terrorist brush,” any more than all Germans should have been “tarred with the Nazi brush.”

The “point of his tweet,” to anyone with a functioning “prefrontal cortex,” is obvious: “a small, brutal percentage of a larger, partially supportive population can do tremendous harm.”

That’s inarguable.

Fortunately, ESPN doesn’t have to “argue” with Schilling or anyone else. They “simply” suspended Schilling, without any “real” rationale.

By way of comparison, they did not suspend frequent ESPN analyst Kevin Blackistone for calling the “Star-Spangled Banner” a “war anthem” on their airwaves.

And the “compliant” media breathe a “sigh of relief,” having made the world safer for those “offended” by tweets, and more “ignorant” of the threat of “radical” Islam.

ESPN is getting widely “slammed” for suspending baseball analyst, Curt Schilling, over his tweet, which accurately compared “Muslim extremists to Nazis,” calling Schilling’s suspension “outrageous” and a “disgrace.”
