Response to Xithras (Reply #35)

37. So what if you found out your kid's teacher posted on racist or anti-Semitic message boards?

Now think twice before bending over backwards to defend those who hold LGBT people like you in contempt.

What if you were a black or Jewish parent and you discovered your kid's teacher's facebook had all sorts of wall posts from white nationalist/anti-Semitic websites like Occidental Observer, American Renaissance, VDARE, etc.?

Or you were an Asian parent and you learned that the woman who recorded that "ching chong ling long ting tong" viral video when she was in UCLA would be substitute teaching in your kid's class?

And in response to this:

if we allow employers to apply rules of conduct to their employees that apply even when they aren't working, then the concept of "freedom" goes out the window...the same position used by conservatives to justify employers threatening to fire Obama voters, or defending the right of employers to terminate people because of their social or political activities. ...NO EMPLOYER should ever have the right to punish an employee for exercising their civil rights away from the workplace. That's doubly true when that employer is the government itself.


So are you against moral clauses in contracts? So should the Democratic National Committee not be allowed to fire an office staffer who voted Republican? Can the Ellen DeGeneres Show production company conduct thought police on its employees to weed out homophobes?
