Obama toilet paper leads to Pompano firefighter's termination

An idiot who couldn't leave the politics at the door has lost his job;

POMPANO BEACH Placing toilet paper imprinted with President Barack Obama's face in a fire station has led to a firefighter's termination and he had until 5 p.m. Friday to turn in his badge.

It was Clint Pierce's third instance of posting political paraphernalia on city property and a violation of a direct order to cease and desist from such behavior, according to city records.

"It was clearly a case of insubordination," city spokeswoman Sandra King said Friday. "He had a similar situation of posting political messages on city property and he was given a free pass at that time and told to cease and desist and he did it again and really exacerbated the situation."

Expressions of political views that could be considered offensive or divisive don't belong on municipal property, the city says.


I don't feel the slightest bit sorry for this racist asshole. He brought it on himself by refusing to leave the politics at home.

1. Fair enough.

 

He was warned, apparently.

What makes you think he's a racist though?

18. If its not underlying hateful racism

what is it? Yes I despised Bush & made fun of him along with others on his ongoing gaffs!
But I never disrespected him or his office or spewed such hateful rhetoric like many members of congress and the Tea Party have against our President Obama.
So desperate & full of hate they were even willing to put their religious values aside, and vote for the most phoney, lying, flip flopping, Presidential candidate of all time!

2. Third Time's a Charm

Okay idiot. You were told not to do this shit three times.

Don't even get a lawyer and start with some "it infringes on my First Amendment Rights to free speech" argument. But I know you will. Asshole.

5. A fireman too.

 

Apparently he has no idea who is on his side and who wants him out of a job.

Stupid ass.

6. Just desserts!

What a complete fool! He deserves getting fired. We have enough haters out there without them being in a 'official' job, like police , emt's, and firemen. What's next, they let your house burn if you happen to be democratic?

It felt very good to use.

13. I have no problem with his right to free speech, but not at the job, not where

 

it's inflicted on others. He should be fired.

So the title is sort of wrong, this is clearly a last straw issue.
