Baseball legend Curt Schilling talked to Tucker Carlson about the internal politics at ESPN in an interview on Wednesday's edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight on the FOX News Channel.
TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: You used to work at ESPN, there's been a lot of drama there recently over the internal politics of the company, what you make of it all with Jamele Hill?
CURT SCHILLING: Well, let me just say, my friends aside, I still have some friends who work there who I love dearly, this is no surprise. this is a group like -- listen, one thing we know, Tucker, and we've come to know, the left is about your race, your sex, your sexual preference, your identity, who you worship, who you don't worship, who you want to sleep with whether you are in transit, they are all about identity politics, every decision they make, every chaos, every event they create is around one of those factors if not more.
The right, we are about legal and illegal. Is it lawful? Are you a law- abiding citizen? I don't care what color you are. If you are a law- abiding citizen, I'm okay with that. If you are not, I'm not.
CARLSON: Interesting, so you are not surprised at all by what you are seeing tonight?
SCHILLING: No, listen, we were like one of those secret like Hogwarts clubs in ESPN behind the scenes that people would walk up to me and look -- in my ear and say I'm with you on your politics. Like you were afraid to be found out. And -- but the only issue that I get -- listen, my first amendment rights went abridge, I got to say what I wanted to stay but I work for somebody else and they get to make the rules. They are an openly intolerant, liberal, progressive bigoted group of people who my biggest beef with it is that they refuse to admit it. I don't care what.
CARLSON: That's exactly right. BS -- MSNBC, just be honest about it. I agree completely. Curt Schilling, thank you for that. It was great to see you tonight.
Thursday on FOX & Friends, Schilling said "some of hte most racist people in sports" are on ESPN:
"Her calling the president a racist, that's no surprise," Schilling said of embattled ESPN host Jemele Hill. "Disney and ESPN have stopped giving all pretense of objectivity and they support a very intolerant, exclusive, liberal progressive agenda. I think some of the most racist people in sports are on the station there now and they have a voice."
