Two recent incidents illustrate how the enemies of liberty on the left work to deny us our freedom of speech. In the first incident, a woman was fired from her (presumably private sector) job due to leftist/black activism against an “offensive” online photo she had posted. According to blackamericaweb.com:
To the mom who thought it was cool for her kids to dress up like Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman for Halloween, we’re glad karma has come to bite you in the butt.
According to reports, Caitlin Cimeno has been fired from her job for posting racially-insensitive photos of her sons, William Filene and Greg Cimeno, with the caption: “Happy Halloween from Zimmerman & trayvon (insert smiley face emoji here.)”
The Massachusetts woman failed to realize that you can be easily tracked down if you post your full name, photos of your children at school, shots of your car with the license plate and selfies at work (duh!). After one Instagram user wrote, “You ruined your life by posting those pics,” Caitlin quickly changed her profile name and deleted the racist shots. But sadly for her, it was too late.
Since I believe that discrimination should be legal in the private sector, her employer (if private) had the right to hire her, or fire her, for any reason he saw fit. Of course, those who oppose employment discrimination based on, among other things, political affiliation, should have a problem with this. Of course, while they have no problem with whites being persecuted for perceived insensitivity toward their favorite groups, they would have serious problems with somebody getting fired for showing insensitivity toward whites or men or straight people.
But given the rapid expansion of government, and taxes, into our lives, the lines between “private sector” and “public sector” are getting blurred. When private sector jobs are getting harder and harder to find, while government jobs sometimes remain the only option for many people, it becomes less and less justifiable to deny “public sector” employees their freedom of speech.
In the second incident, a public security guard is under attack for posting pro-Hitler photos, and disparaging comments about blacks and Jews on social media. In this CBS video, we see reporters hounding the security guard for getting paid with taxpayer money even as he violates social taboos online. Though I think the security guard showed poor taste and a lack of discretion by posting those images, in all likelihood, this was just his way of rebelling against an increasingly oppressive regime of political correctness. Perhaps he’d been forced to attend too many “diversity training” seminars and this was simply his way of venting, of defiling the gods of his oppressors and pissing on their alters. As a security guard, he’s probably very much aware of the black propensity for violence, and the liberal Jewish propensity for silencing those who would speak of it.
The actions of CBS, and black/leftist activists, are calculated to make it a de facto crime to violate the dictates of political correctness. On the one hand, they support an ever-expanding government. On the other, they deny those who work for said government the right to express themselves as they see fit. In their “perfect world” everybody would work for the government to one extent or another – and we’d all be subject to politically correct speech codes. After all, we’re “being paid with taxpayer dollars.”
On a positive note, this is a good opportunity to use the freedom of speech we do have left, and to draw attention to an online force we can use to our advantage: truthrevolt.org. I especially want to encourage y’all to sign this petition:
