Curt Schilling

Former Alaska Gov. Palin blasts ESPN for suspending Curt Schilling: 'The difference between Hitler's army and the genocidal maniacs of ISIS is that the jihadists don't have as much power... yet. By 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' - @SarahPalinUSA
