In view of the “tweetstorm” at ESPN over Jemele Hill’s recent charge that President Trump and his supporters are white supremacists, Curt Schilling’s appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program tonight could not have been more timely. The former baseball all-star and ex-ESPN baseball analyst said he’s not surprised at all that the sports network which fired him let Hill skate free after her incendiary comments.
After discussing other matters, Carlson asked Schilling for his take on Hill’s remarks, which drew condemnation and a call for her firing from the White House. Schilling responded: by saying of ESPN:
They’re an openly intolerant liberal progressive group of people.
Schilling’s opinion on the Hill controversy is as relevant as anyone’s. He was fired by ESPN in April of 2016 for what the New York Times described as “for promoting offensive commentary on social media.” She was treated with kid gloves, and the disparity between ESPN’s treatment of liberals as opposed to conservatives could not be more appalling.
Last year, Schilling posted an image of a man wearing a wig and women’s clothes and the words “LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.” He wrote in the comments, “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.”

A day later, ESPN issued the statement …
ESPN is an inclusive company. Curt Schilling been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.
“Inclusive,” just not for conservatives.
A couple days ago, Schilling took up the issue in an appearance on CNN and pegged Hill as a racist:
She has no place in any platform that represents sports. I think she’s openly racist, I believe she has been openly racist. I don’t need to tell you guys that you guys have been at the forefront of this conversation at CNN since Trump’s been elected.
CNN host Michael Smerconish objected to those remarks and told Schilling he was fired by ESPN “because of his unfair representation of the transgender community. You were pompous in Philly and you are pompous now. You come on my program and make a number of wild assertions, none with specificity towards me or my program.”
“I wasn’t fired for speaking my mind, I was fired for being a conservative,” Schilling shot back. “The problem for me is that ESPN and Disney, both openly support what I believe to be racist, liberal agenda, platforms, while denying they do. To me, that’s frustrating.”

Remember how many liberal commentators and late night talk show hosts would routinely take shots at the Tea Party movement back in 2009 and 2010? These freedom-loving patriots were called almost every name in the book, from fascists to white nationalists, to Nazis and worse. They were labeled as bigots, extremists, thugs and terrorists, all for standing up for limited government and the United States Constitution. Yet conveniently, when it comes to Black Lives Matter or the violent rabble-rousers that make up the Antifa movement, the liberals are silent. This is because to the left, violence and chaos are okay so long as it is done in the name of advancing progressivism or tearing down the conservative movement.
Still, the actions of groups like Antifa as of late are inexcusable. In fact, Breitbart News recently put together an entire list of journalists that have been assaulted by Antifa activists, and since the liberal media won’t give them any further recognition, we here at Natural News will. (Related: Antifa should be declared a domestic terrorism organization.)
Independent Journalist Keith Campbell
During a Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson last month, independent journalist Keith Campbell described a situation at Berkeley where a group of Antifa protesters forced their way through a police line and began mercilessly beating him. Another left wing journalist had to literally jump on top of him to prevent him from being beaten to death.
Just one day after the chaos that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, a separate rally against white supremacy was held in Richmond. It was at this rally that a local CBS reporter was struck in the head by an Antifa activist and rushed to the hospital.
The Hill reporter Taylor Lorenz
After posting a video on social media of a car ramming into a crowd of protestors, The Hill reporter Taylor Lorenz published a follow-up post on Twitter, which read “The video cuts off at the end b/c some asshole came over and punched me in the face and kicked my phone for recording (I said I was press).”
Journalist that was shoved by Antifa after they stole his phone
Last month, GGX News reporter Brian Neumann posted a video on Twitter of a distraught journalist who had his phone stolen by Antifa protesters. The journalist was then forced to explain to the activists that he is not pro-Trump, presumably out of fear that he would be harmed if they thought otherwise.
Andrew Bolt of Sky News
Back in June, conservative commentator Andrew Bolt was assaulted by two Antifa activists in Melbourne, Australia. After being sprayed with a liquid containing dye and glitter, Bolt, who is 57 years old, managed to get in a few punches and forced the thugs to flee.
Max Bachmann of Heavy.com
While covering the G20 protests, Max Bachmann of Heavy.com was attacked by Antifa after being labeled as a Nazi by a separate news reporter.
Jack Posobiec of Rebel Media
Conservative commentator and filmmaker Jack Posobiec was harassed and assaulted by Antifa at George Washington University earlier this summer. When the police identified and confronted Posobiec’s attacker, he immediately claimed that he was actually the victim and not the aggressor.
Marcus DiPaola of Heavy.com
Marcus DiPaola was another journalist from Heavy.com who was attacked by Antifa while covering the G20 protests. DiPaola was able to obtain video footage of the entire assault, and wrote on Twitter, “Punched in face & kicked to ground covering G20 Welcome to Hell protest by RECORDED THE WHOLE THING.”
Global News crew in Quebec
In August, Antifa protesters in Quebec City took to the streets and began engaging in numerous violent and illegal acts, including destroying personal property and hurling fireworks at police. Amidst all of the chaos, Jean-Vincent Verveille and Mike Armstrong of Global News were assaulted by Antifa activists, and their expensive camera equipment was unfortunately destroyed. Thankfully, neither of them were severely injured.
Daily Caller Cameraman
Back in April, during a rally outside of the White House, a cameraman for the Daily Caller found himself caught in the middle of a war between Antifa activists and alt-right protesters. Video of the rally clearly shows a member of Antifa with a red mask across his face walking towards the Daily Caller cameraman and throwing a punch at him, briefly knocking him off balance. (Related: Are Antifa and the alt-right run by the same forces?)
Bilderberg has gained a reputation as the world’s most secretive group of billionaires and political leaders who conspire to impact global events—but reports indicate that they don’t hold a candle to another group that includes a host of war criminals responsible for the “War on Terror.”
The group is named Le Cercle. In a report dated Sept. 13, 1982, the German publication Der Spiegel describes it as a “legal cartel” made up of “loyal Bundesnachrichtendienst agents, foreign intelligence agents, reactionary politicians and ultra-right journalists” who played a crucial role in the 1980 election.
The existence of the group was revealed by Bavarian constitutional protector Hans Langemann. According to the report, he described the group as:
“In the case of CERCLE, which is clearly defamatory,” as far as my earlier knowledge of the BND “and my present knowledge are concerned, a “loose” “concentration “about two times a year and at various” places of conservative- anti-Communist politician,” “publicists, bankers, and VIPs of other professions,” “which originated in the former French Prime Minister Antoine PINAY, and the circle to which guests are invited continues to this day.”
Former U.S. Defense Secretary and President of the World Bank Paul Wolfowitz, former Iraqi Coalition Provisional Authority Leader Paul Bremer, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and former Chairman of the Defense Department’s Defense Policy Board Richard Perle—some of the most notable neoconservative architects of the Iraq War—are all reportedly members.
Other reported American members of Le Cercle include former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Directors of Central Intelligence Bill Casey and William Colby, and former President Richard Nixon after he left the White House.
In a report from The Independent dated June 28, 1997, the “exclusive think-tank said to be funded by the CIA” is mentioned because its chairman at the time, former Member of Parliament Jonathan Aitken, was reportedly going to be removed over a libel trial that ultimately sent him to prison for perjury.
Accusations that Le Cercle receives funding from the CIA have been made by Robin Ramsay, editor of Lobster Magazine; and by John E Lewis, author of “The Mammoth Book of Cover-Ups.”
As the report noted, “the group’s existence is only occasionally disclosed” following its creation in the 1950s:
“Cercle was intended to cement Franco-German relations, as a buffer to Soviet aggression during the Cold War. Down the years, however, it has become much more, advocating right-wing causes round the world and growing into a confidential talking shop for about 70 politicians, businessmen, polemicists and personnel from the diplomatic and security services. Members are invited to attend its meetings; they cannot ask to be admitted, and as a condition of attending they agree to keep all sessions secret. It meets twice a year, once in Washington DC in the autumn and once in the early part of the year in an ‘overseas’ venue.”
The Independent described senior member Brian Crozier as an “author and well-known Cold-Warrior with close ties to MI6 and the CIA” who wrote a “planning paper” for Le Cercle in 1979. In addition to securing changes of government in Germany and the United Kingdom (where Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister in 1979), the agenda included objectives such as:
- “Undercover financial transactions for political aims”
- “International campaigns aiming to discredit hostile personalities or events”
- “Creation of a (private) intelligence service specializing in a selective point of view”
- “Establishment of offices under suitable cover each run by a coordinator from the central office. Current plans cover London, Washington, Paris, Munich and Madrid”
In a report on the history of Le Cercle, British news source True Publica noted that the 1982 Langemann Papers were “the first significant leak to expose the activities of Le Cercle, confirming that the group was actively involved in influencing Western European elections.”
“Its purpose is to subvert the democratic principles and processes of individual countries and are by nature ideologically ‘hawkish’ – distributing propaganda, stoking fear of communist plots from Russia, vote rigging and hacking the accounts of politicians and prominent global figures. Promoting the ‘war on terror’ has been a major factor in their activities of recent years and in so doing broker weapons deals and setting up false flag operations the world over to suit its own agenda.”
While the majority of the information surrounding Le Cercle is covert and secretive—especially regarding its activity in recent years—one of the most important things to remember about the think tank is that its presence is well-documented, its members include influential U.S. politicians, there have been accusations of funding by the CIA, and yet mainstream media in the United States has ignored its existence and influence for decades.
Over the weekend, the radical leftist group known as Antifa descended on a right-wing rally in Berkeley, California to violently shut down the free speech rights of any who didn’t agree with their twisted worldview. And after turning a blind eye to their tactics, or in some cases promoting it, the liberal media appeared to have finally caught on to Antifa’s extremism. On HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered, a show that has denounced Antifa previously, the panel was glad that their colleagues seemed to have finally joined them.
“I wanted to talk about the Antifa violence out at Berkeley, which I think is finally, finally being covered in the mainstream media now,” exclaimed Dave Smith, host of the “Part of the Problem” podcast. “If you had been relying on the mainstream media for the last six months you’d have no idea. But if you watched the internet, that news, you do find out about this stuff.”
Smith described Antifa as a “borderline terrorist group” which violently pushed communism wherever they went, with no accountability being placed on the left to denounce them. “They come out with hammer and sickle flags all the time, and while everyone on the left is demanding that the right-wing, you know, repudiate Nazism, as if that’s actually in fashion,” he argued.
The podcaster chastised the left-wing professors who supported Antifa’s attacks. “They’re anti-free speech and the nerve of them to call themselves ‘anti-fascists’ as they violently shut down free speech,” he added.
Cupp went to Crystal Ball, the panel’s liberal and who’s an MSNBC regular, to see how and if the left would denounce the Antifa movement. Ball gave the standard canned line of ‘no violence is expectable,’ but she down played Antifa as just a group standing up to Nazis. “Let me just say in the wake of Charlottesville there is no equivalency between being a Nazi and marching through the streets and opposing Nazis,” she asserted.
“What’s the difference between holding a hammer and sickle and attacking people, and holding a swastika and attacking people,” Smith quickly asked Ball, which she didn’t answer.
TV’s Andy Levy expertly pointed out that Antifa’s definition of a “fascist” included almost anyone who was not them directly. “Also, one of the problems here is that Antifa they pretty much think anyone to the right of— I don’t know—like maybe Bernie Sanders is a Nazi,” he noted. “So when they talk about violence against Nazis, they’re really talking about violence against anyone who doesn’t share their views.”
“The other pernicious part of this is the masks. The masks are a way to avoid any sort of responsibility for what they’re doing,” added Weekly Standard writer Mike Warren. “And just what a coward move,” Smith concluded.
It’s refreshing to see a group in the media actually denounce and cast aside Antifa’s “borderline terrorist” tactics, especially since NBC/MSNBC had been promoting them for weeks. Meet the Press Moderator Chuck Todd had given Antifa a generous megaphone not once, but twice. And during MTP Daily, fill-in host Katy Tur questioned the so-called “pitfalls” of allowing free speech. CNN even claimed Antifa was “seeking peace through violence.”

S.E. CUPP: All right, Dave, what do you got?
DAVE SMITH: Well, I have not as funny of a story. But I wanted to talk about the —
CUPP: I sense a hard turn.
SMITH: Antifa violence out at Berkeley, which I think is finally, finally being covered in the mainstream media now. If you had been relying on the mainstream media for the last six months you’d have no idea. But if you watched the internet, that news, you do find out about this stuff.
There is a border line terrorist group, they come out with hammer and sickle flags all the time, and while everyone on the left is demanding that the right-wing, you know, repudiate Nazism, as if that’s actually in fashion. These guys are taking this — why don’t we demand that the college professors who are really supporting what these guys stand for, it’s disgusting. They’re anti-free speech and the nerve of them to call themselves “anti-fascists” as they violently shut down free speech. I’d love to hear one left wing person—
CUPP: Well Crystal, you have to hope—and I’m sure you do— that Democrats do not want to be aligned with this any longer.
CRYSTAL BALL: Absolutely. Let me just say in the wake of Charlottesville there is no equivalency between being a Nazi and marching through the streets and opposing Nazis. But we’ve got to be totally clear that violence is not acceptable.
SMITH: Can I? What’s the difference between holding a hammer and sickle and attacking people, and holding a swastika and attacking people?
CUPP: Violence is violence.
ANDY LEVY: Also, one of the problems here is that Antifa they pretty much think anyone to the right of- I don’t know—like maybe Bernie Sanders is a Nazi. So when they talk about violence against Nazis, they’re really talking about violence against anyone who doesn’t share their views. And as you– There’s a name for that ideology.
MIKE WARREN: The other pernicious part of this is the masks. The masks are a way to avoid any sort of responsibility for what they’re doing.
SMITH: And just what a coward move.
(INTELLIHUB) — An Ohio-based veterans group vows to ban all Cleveland Browns games from being televised at its post after more than a dozen of the team’s players took a knee during the national anthem at Monday’s game against the New York Giants to protest violence that occurred at a Charlottsville rally on Aug. 12.
Members of the Strongsville Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3345 headquarters feel that the Browns are a ‘disgrace’ and have decided to not televise any more games until the team issues an apology.
Tim Zvoncheck, commander of the Strongsville VFW group issued a strong statement on Facebook Wednesday night explaining how U.S. vets won’t stand for the shenanigans.
“So tonight, I asked the membership of my post, VFW 3345, what they thought of the Cleveland Browns players kneeling during the National Anthem and the coaching staff backing their decision,” the commander wrote. “Just as I suspected, the “boos” nearly tore the roof off. Effective immediately, VFW Post 3345 will no longer televise any Cleveland Browns games! We will NEVER support any person or organization who disgraces the flag or the anthem that we fought for and so many or our brothers and sisters have died for!”
To add to the group’s statement members also rearranged the letters on their billboard sign out front of the post to read: “We like our Brows — we love our flag more. Your games will no longer be shown here. God bless America!”
— Strongsville VFW (@vfw3345) August 24, 2017
Ohio Supreme Court Justice Bill O’Neill, also slammed players who protested the anthem, calling them “draft dodging millionaire athletes.”
“I will NEVER attend a sporting event where the draft dodging millionaire athletes disrespect the veterans who earned them the right to be on that field,” the justice wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday.
Jabrill Peppers, Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson, Christian Kirksey, Seth DeValve, Jamie Collins, Kenny Britt, Jamar Taylor, and Ricardo Louis were among the players who participated in the protest at Monday’s game.
Similar protests continued to plague the NFL this week when Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett sat out the national anthem for his third time at Friday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs to protest racial inequality.
“I just want to see people have the equality that they deserve, and I want to use this platform to continuously push the message of that. It’s more about being a human being at this point,” Bennett told the press just after this year’s first preseason game in L.A.

Justin Britt also participated in Friday’s protest by merely putting his hand on the shoulder of Bennett for the second time in the past few weeks to show solidarity with his teammate.
“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are”

All of this has caused quite the mess within the league trickling all of the way up to team owners who now have to decide how to deal with the issue.

Colbert, OK – A newly-appointed police chief has come under fire after he was directly linked to a website that promotes international racist skinhead gangs, the Klu Klux Klan, and media titled “Hitler was Right.”
Bart Alsbrook was recently hired as the city of Colbert’s third police chief this year, but it wasn’t his connection to the police department that caught the attention of a local news station.
According to a report from KXII News, the Southern Poverty Law Center released a “hate map” last week, which claimed to track 917 hates groups across the United States. There was only one listed in the Texoma area: a website named ISD Records, which was created by Bart Alsbrook in 2004.
The website featured “a banner that reads ‘The Voice of Blood and Honour,’ an international coalition of racist skinhead gangs, ISD Records features artists like The Klansmen and album titles including ‘Hitler was Right.’” The Bart Alsbrook who owned it was registered at an address in Denison, Texas, less than 10 miles from the city in which a man named Bart Alsbrook just became the newest police chief.
Reporters from KXII reached out to Police Chief Alsbrook to ask about the connection, and he claimed it must have been a different person with his name who created the website. However, the network noted that they “searched for another Bart Alsbrook and couldn’t find another person with that name in the United States,” and coincidentally, after reaching out to the chief, “The site was taken offline within hours of that conversation.”
While Hitler and the KKK are more notable in the United States, Blood & Honor is an international coalition of racist skinhead gangs that originated in the United Kingdom in 1987, according to SPLC.
Blood & Honour founder Ian Stuart Donaldson described his mission, saying, “Eventually there will be a race war and we have to be strong enough in numbers to win it. I’ll die to keep this country pure and if it means bloodshed at the end of the day, then let it be.”
Bart Alsbrook was also listed as “Blood & Honour USA’s Texas coordinator” in 2005, in a report from SPLC that claimed he was the owner of NS88 Videos, a white supremacist website similar to ISD Records. However, KXII noted that after the conversation with Chief Alsbrook, that website was also taken offline.
In a statement to Tulsa World, Alsbrook said the report has “ruined his life,” and he plans to resign and will not continue as a reserve officer.
“Someone has been using my name for years on the Internet in regards to racist topics,” Alsbrook said. “It’s not me, rather someone who has hijacked my name due to my combativeness and rejection to white power skinheads who were always coming to the heavy metal shows, starting fights and messing up our scene.”
While Alsbrook’s explanation may account for the use of his name, it does not account for the use of his address, and if the websites had been created by people who were looking to get him in trouble, then why would they have been deleted within hours of a local TV station making the connection between the two?
As The Free Thought Project has reported, links between police officers and white supremacy in the U.S. are not a myth and have been ongoing for years. In fact, according to one investigation conducted by law school students at Syracuse University, during the Civil Rights movement, the KKK ordered its members to infiltrate police departments, “because the laws don’t apply to them if they are the law.”
