    ESPN benches Curt Schilling for saying radical Islamic terrorists are a problem

    The controversy began early Tuesday, when Schilling sent out a tweet comparing "extremist Muslims" to the Nazi Party. Schilling quickly deleted that tweet, but many users took a screen shot before it was taken down.

    ESPN PR quickly responded, saying they did not agree with the views Schilling expressed in the tweet, and immediately removed him from his current assignment broadcasting the Little League World Series.

    It's the non-PC response to this:

    Former Red Sox pitcher and current ESPN analyst will no longer appear on the network’s Little League World Series broadcasts after he shared a meme on Twitter Tuesday attempting to compare the percentage of Muslims who are extemists to the percentage of Germans in 1940 who were Nazis.


    ESPN Benches Schilling for Nazi Tweet

    ESPN has suspended analyst and former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling after he tweeted a meme Muslims to Nazis. “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 ESPN statement read.

    Little Girl Banned From Bringing Wonder Woman Lunch Box To School Because It's 2015

    Apparently, Wonder Woman and the rest of her superhero kind have no place in school — or, at the very least, not in one particular school. One little girl had no idea what was to come in simply using a fun Wonder Woman lunch box to carry her PB&J. But alas, it's 2015, and well, the girl's school quickly banned her lunch box from the premises for the most ridiculous reason.

    The lunch box, which you can see here, has a old-school image of Wonder Woman’s face on the front, while the back has her full body holding a lasso with the caption, "As lovely as Aphrodite. As wise as Athena." Despite the imagery, the school considered this a "violent character," and is therefore not allowed to be shown on any student’s clothes, backpacks and lunch boxes.

    He upset the liberals. So he might be fired altogether.

    He was also an ex-Phillie and I'm a Phillies fan...but Schilling was an asshole and a douchebag. I don't think there's ever been an athlete that was such a "good guy" in front of the camera and then such an asshole when it's off...

    That doesn't surprise me. He does have good taste in football teams.

    The Schilling story is huge: it shows Jews are not controlling the media. Haha.
