Curt Schilling was recently axed by ESPN for speaking out about the controversial ‘bathroom bill’ that is sweeping America. But he isn’t backing down one bit. Take a look at what he had to say in response to his termination and those who accuse him of being a ‘hater.’
Curt Schilling, the ex-Boston Red Sox ace pitcher, appeared on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM 125 The Patriot Channel with host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon on Friday morning to make absolutely clear he is not backing down to the left over his transgender bathroom comments.
Schilling, a conservative, this week posted on his blog a photograph of a heavyset overweight man wearing women’s clothing and a wig with the caption: “Let him in! To the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!!!”
Here was his response when he was asked if he was a ‘hater’:
Schilling compared the accusations against him to someone who hasn’t molested children being accused of being a child molester.
“That’s how I feel,” Schilling told Bannon. “I don’t have a racist bone in my body. I’m not transphobic. I’m not homophobic. My 16-year-old son is one of the founding members of the LBGT club in high school. That’s his group. That’s the people he loves and hangs out with. He has no blinders on. His whole world is about ‘I don’t care who you are and what you are—you’re good people.’
Those kids are in and out of this house all the time. I’ve never in my life treated somebody based on a racial denomination or religion or sexual preference. I don’t care. I’ve never cared. As long as you’re not sleeping with my wife, I don’t care who you sleep with. So that, to me, to be where we’re at—something had to go wildly askew. I hate to use that defense when people talk about ‘oh, you’re a racist,’ that ‘no, I have black friends.’
But listen, I’m 49 years old. I had a company with almost 400 employees. I had many people that were transgender. There were people that were gay and all the things that were like that. They were some of the greatest people in the world; they’re still friends and some of the people I talk with.
If in my past, I’d ever been a racist or I’d ever said something racist or if I had ever been transphobic or homophobic, somebody somewhere would have said something I’m sure given my status.”
