Are We Republicans … or Not?


Bottom Line: One thing is certain in America, and in the world: free speech either is … or it is not. You either believe in it, or you do not. You either have it, or you do not. Here’s another thing that’s certain in America: If you don’t have it, you want it.

We Republicans and Conservatives should speak out loud and clear both against the half-witted tweeter, and his firing. This is not the Soviet Union. Or China. Or North Korea.

Yet.


Are we Republicans? Or not?

Do we believe in free speech? Or not?

After President Trump’s speech to a joint session of Congress the other day, some moron went on Twitter and said some really grotesque, stupid things about Carryn Owens, widow of Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, killed in the recent raid against jihadis.

The guy sent the tweet, then apparently thought better of it, and deleted it and his entire Twitter account.

The tweet got out, though, as such things tend to do. The half-wit tweeter’s company (hyper-ironically named: “Liberty Advisor Group“) fired him forthwith, with some jabber about “not consistent with our core values, blah, blah, blah…

I have some questions: Is one of those core values free speech? (Answer: Unknown) Did the half-wit tweeter do the tweeting on his own time? (Answer: Yes) Is the guy a moron? (Answer: Yes) Is the moron good at his job? (Answer: Unknown)

Here’s my take on it: if the moron did the idiotic tweeting on his own time, then the company was very, very wrong to fire him. If, that is, he was fired for the tweet. It’s a different thing if he was fired for being bad at his job. None of the stories have given any indication of this. And, if he was fired for being bad at his job, then the timing was certainly poor.

One thing is certain in America, and in the world: free speech either is … or it is not. You either believe in it, or you do not. You either have it, or you do not. Here’s another thing that’s certain in America: If you don’t have it, you want it.

We Republicans and Conservatives should speak out loud and clear both against the half-witted tweeter, and his firing. This is not the Soviet Union. Or China. Or North Korea.
