The right to free speech means that Curt Schilling can say whatever he wants, regardless of how offensive it is, or how bigoted it is, or whatever.
The right to free speech does not, however, stop ESPN from firing Curt Schilling because of something he said while exercising his right to free speech.
I know many people find that confusing, but what it boils down to is this… You have the Constitutional right to be an asshole if you want to be an asshole. That does not mean you have the right to go unpunished for being an asshole.
Now that ESPN has fired Schilling the next step is ours. We have to just ignore him in the hopes that he’ll just go away.
He can blog on wordpress.com all he wants, but if no one reads what he writes then he’ll be just as irrelevant as I.
God Bless America!
