Raise your hand if you didn’t see this coming. Days after Curt Schilling asked a Jewish newscaster how a Jew could possibly back the Democratic Party, the powers-that-be at Breitbart News saw a talent for divisiveness that should not be squandered and snapped up the former Red Sox pitcher, ESPN analyst and right-wing nutbar for their channel on SiriusXM Radio.

Last week, Schilling asked CNN’s Jake Tapper how a Jew like Tapper, or any Jew for that matter, could support Democrats. He appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews last week.

“I mean God forbid I listen to someone of the faith rather than the media who clearly are not biased and don’t have an agenda,” he added.
“I’m not trying to be offensive or racist, I am clearly curious because … I understand my history that this country feels so anti-Israel in the last fifteen years — moreso than in any point in my life — and I can’t figure that out.”

Apparently, the folks at Breitbart felt they just could not let that kind of divisive arglebargle go to waste.

On Monday, Breitbart plans to announce that former Red Sox pitcher and Trump supporter Curt Schilling will begin hosting a daily online radio show featuring political commentary and calls from listeners. The broadcast will eventually include a video livestream. The show marks Schilling’s return to media six months after ESPN fired him for sharing an anti-transgender Facebook post with a message that read: “A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”

“He got kicked off ESPN for his conservative views. He’s a really talented broadcaster,” Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow said.

In addition to giving Schilling a national platform for his alt-right views as he contemplates a 2018 run against Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), it locks down the ex-pitcher for the expected Trump/Bannon/Breitbart media “empire” that many expect to rise from the ashes of the Republican party following the doomed Trump presidential campaign. Some people think that was the whole point of the Trump campaign; not to win the presidency, but to launch a new media enterprise to compete with Fox News for the viewers on the idiot right wing fringe.

Retired from his position as a writer/editor at the National Institutes of Health, Bill Schmalfeldt saw the willingness of a cadre of right wing idiots to destroy the life of an ex-con who had re-entered public life having served his time. He spoke out against this pack of hyenas and paid for it with false attacks on his own reputation and filthy, foul and profane mockery surrounding the death of his wife in 2015. Unbroken, Bill continues to write for Breitbart Unmasked and his private blog, http://theclintoniconoclast.com -- He now lives a quiet life in his hometown of Clinton, Iowa, doing a daily afternoon air shift at MAC 94.7 FM in the city of his birth.

    “…idiot right wing fringe.”

    I think there is a loose thread in the fabric of the right. Because the “fringe” is getting bigger and bigger and looking more and more ragged…
