"ESPN IS A JOURNALISTIC EMBARRASSMENT," the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee posted on Facebook Thursday night. "Your intolerant PC police are running amok and making a joke out of you! By picking and choosing who they'll tolerate and who they'll try to destroy, ESPN has zero credibility as a sound and reasonable media outlet."

Palin added that the "once great" ESPN hasn't been what it once was "for years now," noting that her name and reputation have also been brought up on the channel.

Schilling on Tuesday tweeted out a meme that included a picture of Adolf Hitler and read, "It's said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go."

Schilling commented, "The math is staggering when you get to true #s."

ESPN called Schilling's tweet "completely unacceptable" and pulled him from his Little League World Series announcer's gig "“pending further consideration," BuzzFeed reported.

Schilling deleted the tweet minutes after sending it and later sent out an apology.

Despite Schilling's apology, Palin stood by the original tweet's sentiment.

"By denying the accuracy of Schilling’s tweet, ESPN shows its weakness as it buys into the propaganda of ISIS and other terror organizations, helping mislead the public about the very real threat of terrorism," she wrote. "It shows once again that ESPN would rather concentrate on liberal global politics instead of report well on our beloved sports."
