After ESPN suspended baseball analyst Curt Schilling for a Tweet comparing radical Muslims to Nazis, Sarah Palin slammed the sports broadcasting company for advancing "liberal global politics" and buying into ISIS propaganda, CNN
The Tweet in which ESPN condemned Schilling stated: "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 then added, "The math is staggering when you get to true #'s."
Instead of blasting the Tweet, Palin responded by saying, "Schilling — was he wrong? No! In fact, his stats were too generous in estimating Muslims' attitudes."
"Reports show it's 88 percent of Egyptian Muslims favoring death for anyone who leaves Islam. The majority of Muslims in many other places share the sentiment. In America, these views could correctly be described as 'extreme.'"
Palin added that "the difference between Hitler's army and the genocidal maniacs of ISIS is that the jihadists don't have as much power ... yet," CNN reported.
The former GOP vice presidential candidate noted that ESPN's reaction to the Tweet was as "fast as a Schilling pitch" when they immediately released a statement noting that the baseball analysts' comments were "unacceptable" and in no way represent the company's perspective.
According to CNN Politics, Palin's lengthy statement on her Facebook page, entitled "ESPN is a Journalistic Embarrassment,"
denounced the sports broadcasting company and their decision to suspend the retired MLB pitcher.
"ESPN what happened to you? Your intolerant PC police are running amok and making a joke out of you!"
Palin's final and most severe condemnation said, "By denying the accuracy of Schilling's tweet, ESPN shows its weakness as it buys into the propaganda of ISIS and other terror organizations."
Then, Palin fired this parting shot: "ESPN — you are awful in this. Stick to sports."
