You know it ceases to amaze me the hypocritical world we live in.
Curt Schilling, yes the Red Sox pitcher with the bloody sock, the right wing supporter for Trump, a man who had the State of Rhode Island lose millions on a failed business deal, is being possibly denied into the baseball Hall of Fame.
Why? Not for the above but because he wore a tee shirt that called for “lynching journalists” AND for the fact that he collects World War II memorabilia that includes some Nazi antiques as well. Well pardon me for being a collector.
Mr. Schilling has done more for charity work than most professional athletes I know. You may not agree with his political views, his outlook on life but isn’t that what freedom is all about.
What’s next, your denied because you have a stamp collection because Bugs Bunny is one of the stamps, your denied because you have a gun collection that makes you a possible murderer? Good God people wake up!
The Hall of Fame has to do with baseball accomplishments. This just proves how muddy the thought processes are of not just the people voting but of all of us. We, especially in this country lump everything we hear or read about a person and come up with an opinion about said person without even knowing them.
I also think this speaks to journalism in our country, with the exception of a few , is basically non existent. Do you think Babe Ruth was a model citizen? In case you don’t know he was NOT! The sheeple in the country, including journalists , believe everything a source or official tells them and does no digging for the facts. I could go on about this for hours but you lack true facts about a story in this country unless you get off your duff and do some investigating of your own, but I digress.
Mr. Schilling should be in the Hall of Fame and this nonsense of why not just proves the demise of the non partisan journalist, and shows most journalists have an axe to grind of some kind. Maybe their mother made them eat grits, or clean the yard or whatever but it seems that journalists in general are either teleprompter readers or just plain lazy and get a story and don’t investigate. Lynching might be extreme but avoiding them might be in order.
