Wednesday, on his new Breitbart online radio show, former Red Sox pitcher and prospective Massachusetts Republican U.S. Senate candidate Curt Schilling equated the Black Lives Matter movement to the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis.
While interviewing Breitbart tech editor and alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, Schilling declared, “The word ‘racism’ has replaced ‘prejudice.’ Racism is a belief, a core, fundamental belief that another race is inferior to you. It’s what the Nazis felt about the Jews and most of the rest of the world. It’s what the KKK feels about other races of people. Right now we’re dealing with, I think, extremes on the Black Lives Matter and KKK movement, which I think are both very racist and everybody else is prejudiced.”
The Nazis undertook a campaign to exterminate Jews from the world and the KKK murdered and lynched thousands of black men while terrorizing whole communities. According to Schilling, Black Lives Matter is the equivalent of these two groups.
Later in the interview, Schilling brought up his recent conversation with Jake Tapper in which he asked the CNN journalist to explain to him why American Jews are primarily Democrats. Schilling asked Yianoppoulous, “As a member of the gay community, why do you believe that [gay people] look at the left as their party?”
“Oh because they are idiots. They’re such idiots.” Yiannopoulos replied.
