Ever since Curt Schllling was fired by ESPN back in April, he’s been keeping busy making political posts on his Facebook and Twitter accounts, appearing on Boston’s WEEI Radio and talking on various conservative talk shows. He also did a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) chat taking questions on various subjects including his time at ESPN, his future in media and anything else that came to mind from Reddit users.

In regards where he’ll work next, Schilling revealed that his next job will likely be on SiriusXM hosting a talk show for its conservative Patriot channel.

And of course, a question came up regarding his former employer, ESPN and of course, he went back to his regular line that the network is left leaning:

“It’s a liberal mindset. They think if they don’t acknowledge the accusations then they aren’t true. Up top it’s the most exclusive fraudulent bunch of phonies ever.”

When asked about the time when ESPN edited his role out of the re-airing of the 30 for 30 documentary “Four Days in October” shortly after he was let go, Schilling didn’t hold back:

“…I just look at that as another dumb ass move by dumb asses.”

And when queried if he would return to ESPN, Schilling replied that only if they changed ownership. He respoused if there was any danger by speaking his mind while working for ESPN:

“The only danger is if you HAVE To work for someone you don’t respect and that doesn’t respect the 1st Amendment. This “represents our company” bull**** is laughable. Why on earth would anyone care what people they don’t know, think?”

He went on to discuss Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, video games, whether he’s recently talked to former Arizona Diamondbacks teammate Randy Johnson (he hasn’t).

Certainly Schilling is continuing to speak out in the months since he was fired. And by finding work with SiriusXM Patriot, he will no longer have to worry about posting political memes and conservative thoughts on his social media accounts, not that he did while working for the Worldwide Leader.
