Sarah Palin Denounces ESPN's Schilling Suspension for Muslim-Nazi Tweet

Sarah Palin Denounces ESPN's Schilling Suspension for Muslim-Nazi Tweet
(Twitter)

By    |   Friday, 28 August 2015 03:00 PM

Sarah Palin took ESPN harshly to task on Friday, calling its leaders "wussified" after the network suspended former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling over a tweet he posted that compared Muslims to Nazis.

The tweet, which has since been removed, said, "The math is staggering when you get to the true #s. It’s said only 5-10 percent of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7 percent of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?”

Schilling later posted on his Twitter feed that he takes full responsibility for what he called a "bad choice."



In a long Facebook post, the former vice presidential candidate defended the statistics that Schilling used and lambasted ESPN as a "journalistic embarrassment."

"The difference between Hitler’s army and the genocidal maniacs of ISIS is that the jihadists don’t have as much power . . . yet," Palin wrote. "By denying the accuracy of Schilling’s tweet, ESPN shows its weakness as it buys into the propaganda of ISIS and other terror organizations, helping mislead the public about the very real threat of terrorism. It shows once again that ESPN would rather concentrate on liberal global politics instead of report well on our beloved sports."

At least one person online thought Palin's defense of Schilling didn't help:
