As I've noted here and a few other posts, former pitcher and current ESPN analyst returned from his suspension, Curt Schilling has a history of making racist, misogynistic, hate-filled, far-right tweets and Facebook posts. He's back on the air now, making watching ESPN's coverage of post-season baseball much more limited for me (all the more unfortunate because the beloved Chicago Cubs are actually in the post-season this year) -- and it's so endearing that his suspension has impacted his good sense and warm-hearted objectivity and decency. Because, of course, what you want most in an analyst is blind hatred.
Here's his response last night to Donald Trump's question about the Democratic debate. I'm not saying he doesn't have the right to believe this, or even post it, or be as racist and misogynistic as he likes about anything. Just that it not only shows a lot of continued knee-jerk, thoughtless hatred, And that it's not great in the common sense department for someone who's already been suspended by his employer.
