Curt Schilling - Stars who refuse to support Colin KaepernickCurt Schilling

Like Scott Baio, former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling has become a star of conservative punditry, making regular appearances on Fox News, Breitbart, and other right-wing media outlets. His outspokenness and hardline views have gotten him into plenty of controversies. Most recently, he caused a stir with his social media commentary involving transgender rights, which ultimately got him fired from ESPN. His views on Kaepernick's protest fall squarely in opposition.

Speaking to Breitbart, Schilling said, "Clearly he's trying to send a message, and to be very clear, I'm proud of the fact—and I don't know how this is going to come across—that I live in a country where he can do what he did, and not go to jail, be hung, or shot," adding, "Because that's not true in all of the world." Having said that, Schilling argued "there's a billion other ways, I think, to get the message out." He also said, "It's doing what a lot of people, like Spike Lee, would like it to do. It's creating anger."

Schilling noted basketball legend Michael Jordan's dual $1 million dollar donations to both the International Association of Chiefs of Police's newly established Institute for Community-Police Relations and to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Schilling called for a sit-down between police and minority communities as a more productive way to deal with the situation. He also suggested Kaepernick "refuse to take his paycheck" and accused the NFL of a double standard regarding what kind of protests the league allows. Additionally, Schilling used the anthem debacle to slam the media, leftists, and Hillary Clinton, because like all emotional debates, they tend to stray from the point.
