MLB Legend Curt Schilling Islam Heading Down Nazi Path (Update: Suspended By ESPN)

MLB Legend Curt Schilling -- Islam Heading Down Nazi Path ... (Update: Suspended by ESPN)

12:45 PM PT -- Schilling just issued the following apology: "I understand and accept my suspension. 100% my fault. Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part."

11:40 AM PT -- ESPN has officially yanked Curt from his assignment covering the Little League World Series in the wake of his Twitter post. 

The network issued a statement saying, "Curt’s tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective."

"We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration."

Curt Schilling believes radical Muslims are as serious of a threat to the world as the Nazis -- and says the numbers prove it.

The former Boston Red Sox pitcher just posted a meme to Twitter which says, "It's said only 5-10% Muslims are extremists. In 1940 only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?!"

He added a comment that read, "The math is staggering when you get to true #'s."

The insinuation is that Islam is heading down the same path as the Nazi party ... and it won't end well. 

Schilling only had the post up for about 10 minutes -- but it doesn't take that long to get the Internet going.
