MLB Legend Under Fire For Questioning Parkland Shooting Narrative
May be denied entry into Hall of Fame over tweet
Former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling drew criticism Saturday when he suggested anti-gun activist and Marjory Stoneman Douglas student David Hogg was not a student of the school in a tweet.
“Anyone?” he tweeted with an attached picture of Hogg in a yearbook photo he alleged was the Redondo Shores High School Class of 2015, suggesting Hogg may be an actor and not a Stoneman Douglas student.
Although that particular graphic isn’t accurate, as the yearbook photo shows a student wearing a Stoneman Douglas Eagles shirt two rows above Hogg, there is still questionable circumstances surrounding the Parkland shooting and aftermath.
Additionally, separate video also surfaced showing Hogg flubbing rehearsed lines during a news interview after the shooting, as well as video of a female student describing a second shooter.
Schilling himself is no stranger to controversy.
In 2016, ESPN booted the former pitcher from the network after he tweeted an anti-transgender meme on his Facebook page.
And in 2015, he was suspended for a month and ultimately removed from his spot on Sunday Night Baseball after posting on Twitter comparing radical Muslims to Nazis.
YouTube has already taken steps to delete several Infowars videos that question the shooting and Hogg, claiming they violate its terms and conditions because it claims the videos are “bullying.”
Given the mainstream media’s and YouTube’s sensitivity to the subject, it may not come as a shock that Schilling may be denied entry to the MLB Hall of Fame simply for expressing views that counter the official narrative.
