After Seeing This Tweet, I Would Bet Good Money That Curt Schilling Has No Idea How Trains Work
And there you have it ladies and gentleman, a glimpse into the life of a prejudice, agenda driven ex-athlete that has never even bothered to educate himself on the inner workings of mass transit. Must be nice to be so famous that you can just forget things that elementary schoolers understand. Curt Schilling is a lot of things, but a train connoisseur is undoubtedly not one. I'm not saying he would be a worse conductor than the guy that decided 9AM on a Thursday was a hell of a time to forget to hit the brakes while approaching a highly crowded station on the outskirts of a city, but he probably wouldn't be much better.
Think Curt even understands that trains run on tracks so literally the only thing it could run INTO was the station? No chance he looked at a picture or read up on the number of casualties, right? Pretty obvious from one glance that the train wasn't moving at a "high speed", but I'm assuming he didn't want to let a silly fact or two get in the way of a good old fashioned attempt at fear mongering.
Hey, I guess I can't blame the guy. The Presidential election is rapidly approaching. How else do you expect Curt Schilling do to his campaigning for Donald Trump? He's not gonna not prematurely blame every fatality on a nameless, faceless Muslim. That would be a huge missed opportunity to gain the votes of people that use Twitter as their primary news source. Somewhere out there is at least one Curt Schilling follower that thinks some suspiciously brown man with a scraggly beard and a turban ran up to the front of the train with a box cutter and made the conductor ease off the brake as he "veered" straight into building at a 30MPH. That guy is definitely voting for Trump, and it's all thanks to someonnnne's completely unsubstantiated speculation that a crash that killed three was an act of terrorism.
To the rest of us with eyes and a brain? No big deal, he said it's cool if he was wrong. Can't fault a man that admits he might be incorrect when he casually refers to an accident as a religiously motivated attack on our country and it's freedoms.
