Palin Defends the Retweet that Got Curt Schilling Suspended from ESPN

Earlier this week, Curt Schilling was suspended by ESPN for retweeting a meme that compared Nazis to Muslims. ESPN stated that Schilling's tweet was was “completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company's perspective." The former Boston Red Sox player was pulled from covering the Little League Championship. Sarah Palin defended Schilling by writing:

"Two — Schilling's tweet — was he wrong? No! In fact his stats were too generous in estimating Muslims' attitudes. Reports show it's 88% 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 be correctly described as 'extreme.'

The difference between Hitler’s army and the genocidal maniacs of (Islamic State group) is that the jihadists don’t have as much power… yet.

By denying the accuracy of Schilling’s tweet, ESPN shows its weakness as it buys into the propaganda of (Islamic State group) 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."

On August 27, Palin attacked ESPN for offensive comments Mike Tyson made about her in 2011 on an ESPN radio affiliate in Las Vegas.
