Curt Schilling Deletes Tweet Supporting The Lynching Of Journalists
November 7, 2016

Business Insider caught Curt Schilling sharing a picture on Twitter that suggested journalists should be lynched and called the image “awesome.”

The photo came from a Donald Trump rally that Schilling attended.

He later said this about the picture.

He later called the image "funny," said it displayed "sarcasm," and added that "if it offends" readers they should block him or "shut the hell up."

I clicked on the Business Insider link of the pic and it appears that Schilling deleted the tweet.

But in my infinite wisdom, I captured a screen grab of it.

It's not funny or sarcastic at all. It is vile and dangerous, but that's the mindset of rabid Trump supporters.
