Curt Schilling and the Death of Free Speech
"Curt Schilling's tweet comparing Muslims to Nazis is even worse than it sounds," howled Max Fisher in Vox – one of the many voices this week screaming for Schilling's head for transgressing against America's new and unwritten, but nonetheless frightfully draconian, speech codes.
Fisher professes ignorance of the perp's illustrious career, semaphoring that he is a good leftist elitist, ignorant of Schilling's brutish, bourgeois athletic achievements: "Curt Schilling, whom Wikipedia informs me is a former baseball star and current ESPN commentator, sent a tweet on Tuesday that seems to have emerged straight from the internet nether-void of racist email forwards."
"Racist"? Schilling tweeted a graphic that read, "It's said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?" So where is the "racism"? What race are "extremist Muslims"? What race are Muslims in the aggregate? What race is Islam? Or did Fisher mean that Schilling's tweet was racist against Germans?
