Former ESPN personality and major league baseball great Curt Schilling continues to be persecuted by the national political correctness bund. Schilling was unceremoniously fired by the network after a social media post that was critical of the liberal crusade to throw women’s restrooms open to transvestites and potentially to perverts caused an uproar. While Shilling was sent packing, it wasn’t enough to just lose his job and paycheck though. The liberal elite expected him to grovel and beg for forgiveness but the dude who pitched in the 2004 World Series with an ankle injury so bad that his sock was soaked with blood doesn’t give up easily. Shilling refused to buckle – now in a move so eerie that it reeks of Orwell’s 1984, ESPN is erasing footage of the Hall of Fame pitcher from it’s documentary on the Boston Red Sox World Series team.
As reported by Yahoo Sports “ESPN conveniently edits Curt Schilling out of Red Sox documentary”:
The ongoing feud between ESPN and former employee Curt Schilling may have just been taken to a new level. Schilling was fired by the network in April. Shortly after being let go, Schilling accused the station of bias and said they employ some of the most racist people he’s ever met.
It’s pretty rare for a company as big and public as ESPN to get into a back-and-forth with a recently fired employee, but it certainly looks like that might be the case here. It’s time for everyone at home to grab their popcorn.
During Sunday’s airing of the “30 for 30” documentary “Four Days in October,” which details the Boston Red Sox’s epic four-game comeback against the New York Yankees in the 2004 ALCS, the network cut out a pretty crucial part of the story. Curt Schilling’s Game 6 start, also known as “the bloody sock game,” was edited out.
Boston Globe reporter Chad Finn noticed the change and reached out to ESPN to explain why this happened. According to a statement by the network, it was all one big misunderstanding.
“When a live event runs long, it’s standard procedure to shorten a taped program that follows. In this case, we needed to edit out one of the film’s four segments to account for the extra length of the softball game.”
Prior to airing the program, ESPN broadcast a live softball game. That game went longer than expected, forcing the people at ESPN to cut down the Red Sox documentary in order to make up for that lost time and keep other shows on schedule.
That makes sense logically, but it seems awfully convenient given the current contentious relationship between the two parties.
Considering the state of events with Schilling, the network’s explanation has more than a whiff of bullshit. When considering the importance of that massive win when the pitcher played through pain in finally breaking the curse of the Bambino and winning the World Series for the Bosox, the statement is hard to view as anything but an outright lie. The bloody sock is legendary, to omit it from the show is akin to cutting out Von Miller’s strip sacks of Cam Newton in this year’s Super Bowl. Liberal fascism knows no bounds and if at first you can’t succeed – censorship is the next option.
