Sarah Palin: Curt Schilling suspension shows ESPN "buys into ISIS propaganda"

The former governor of Alaska and Republican vice president candidate wrote a long, angry message on Facebook condemning ESPN for suspending Curt Schilling.

ESPN has called Schilling’s tweet — which he later deleted and apologized for — “completely unacceptable,” but Palin wholeheartedly disagrees in her post titled “ESPN IS A JOURNALISTIC EMBARRASSMENT.”

“Your intolerant PC police are running amok and making a joke out of you!” Palin wrote. “By picking and choosing who they’ll tolerate and who they’ll try to destroy, ESPN has zero credibility as a sound and reasonable media outlet.”

She also defended Schilling’s tweet, which said “Only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How’d that go?”

Her only problem with it? She said his stats were “too generous in estimating Muslims’ attitudes.”

“Reports show it’s 88% of Egyptioan Muslims favoring DEATH for anyone who leaves Islam,” she wrote. “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 ISIS is that the jihadists don’t have as much power… yet.”

Palin said that the ESPN suspension, shows the network is “denying the accuracy of Schilling’s tweet.”

“ESPN shows its weakness as it buys into the propaganda of ISIS and other terror organizations, helping mislead the public about the very real threat of terrorism,” she said. “It shows once again that ESPN would rather concentrate on liberal global politics instead of report well on our beloved sports.”

But she wasn’t only yelling at ESPN about terrorism. She also said the network condones misogyny and violence against women, while also using her name to spread “rude bile.”

“There’s been crude, rude bile spewing from the once-great sports network for years now,” Palin said. “Trust me. I know. My name and reputation’s been in it. One ESPN affiliate’s on-air rant featuring their misogynist, animalistic “analysts” grunting and giggling through an entire x-rated celebration of violence against women didn’t even draw a chirp from ESPN’s wussified leaders. Look it up; I don’t want to have to recount it.”
