ESPN Pulls Curt Schilling for Making a Valid Observation

The former major league pitcher, who was offering analysis on the Little League championship for the sports broadcaster, was pulled for retweeting this:
"Only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?"
As we know, it didn't go so well. But you're not allowed to point it out because that somehow amounts to comparing all "Muslims to Nazi-era Germans," and that simply won't do. (The fact that that's not what the tweet is claiming is beside the point, of course.)
