Former World Series champion pitcher Curt Schilling said Tuesday that his insurance company AIG canceled his plan because of his social media posts, which have recently praised President Donald Trump.
“We will be just fine, but wanted to let Americans know that @AIGinsurance canceled our insurance due to my ‘Social Media profile,'” Schilling tweeted Tuesday.
“PLEASE understand that this is and will in no way be a ‘one off,'” he tweeted, replying to an unconvinced user. “This is the coming storm, this is the ‘future’ of the nation if we allow Demokkkrats the power they fraudulently came into. At their core, this is exactly who they are. Power and control, then FU.”
Since retiring from Major League Baseball (MLB), the former pitcher has become a pro-Trump voice on social media. Schilling, who right now goes by “President Elect Curt Schilling” on Twitter, is currently a commentator at BlazeTV and has contributed to Breitbart.
When another Twitter user cast doubt on Schilling’s statement, he replied to her with a screenshot from his correspondence with AIG.
“Cut out personal information and kept the relevant part readable. But ya, it’s real and I don’t imagine it’s even close to what we will witness in the coming months, years, if we let the Nazi’s win and the fraud is allowed to stand,” Schilling tweeted.
He responded to another user by explaining that he has very little incentive to fabricate his story.
“If it’s true?” Schilling wrote. “First off why would I lie about some bulls–t like this and second? You don’t think they’d be lining up lawyers to sue for defamation/slander/libel RIGHT NOW if I was lying? Hell, I tagged them in the tweet.”
On January 6 before midnight, Schilling tweeted his thoughts about that day’s deadly pro-Trump Capitol riot, expressing his support for the rioters. While he didn’t indicate which post he thought pushed AIG to cancel his plan, some reports say this January 6 tweet may have been the one.
“You cowards sat on your hands, did nothing while liberal trash looted rioted and burned for air Jordan’s and big screens, sit back, stfu, and watch folks start a confrontation for s–t that matters like rights, democracy and the end of govt corruption. #itshappening,” Schilling tweeted.
Over the course of his MLB career, Schilling pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Boston Red Sox—winning the World Series three times.

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar kicked off House Foreign Affairs Committee
Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.
After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.
Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”
“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”
Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”
A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”
Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.
In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
