I'll bet this is happening all across the nation.

If it's really as she describes it, this is outrageous. However, I would bet there is another side to this story. She has every right to be proud of her choices in the election, but if she was creating a disturbance at work, her manager has every right to fire her. If, on the other hand, the manager just fired her because he's a hothead liberal that doesn't like Trump supporters, he should be disciplined, and if that doesn't happen, we need to know what business this is so we can apply external pressure.

Did you read about the CEO fired for saying he was going to kill Trump? This is how the facist left thinks. Reward your (political) friends and punish your (political) enemies.  Just look at all the rioting happening, I think there is a good chance she's telling the truth.

@jpsb

Please read my updated post (I added a little to it). I can totally believe she's telling the truth. I don't know, and so I am not judging her. I am just pointing out that it's entirely feasible that she put the manager in a position where he didn't have a choice. Most businesses are terrified of being sued, and the most terrifying of lawsuits is the "hostile work environment" suit. I can totally see how she might have shot her mouth off to the point where the manager was afraid of some other employee filing just such a lawsuit, or of the discussion escalating to some sort of conflict or other productivity-killing event. People who post video rants on the Interwebs often have the kind of personality that will shoot their mouth off in any situation - including the workplace.

In truth, it's probably better if people just keep their political opinions to themselves while at work. It's unfortunate, but in the litigious world we live in, it's the safest course

@Scutter if I stumble upon more info I'll post it.

@jpsb

Thanks, I'd appreciate that. If the story is really as she portrays this, I expect this will get picked up by someone in the media (maybe Hannity).

She went to work and caused a disruption.
Her boss told her to 'stop talking' (because she was disrupting the workplace).
She interpreted this admonishment as being suppressive of her pro-Trump views.
She then challenged her boss's warning and confronted him indicating that he was 'oppressing' her ability to express herself.
Her boss then told her to 'leave' (which she assumed meant she was fired. I think he just wanted her to shut-up to stop the disruption).
She then reiterated to her boss, and to the office I assume, her view of herself as a 'proud American'.
Her boss then told her to leave again, which she complied.
She then made a self congratulatory video establishing herself as the victim of anti-Trump repression.


Being pro-Trump and being a proud American does not give anyone the right to be a loudmouth jerk, especially at work. IMO

Could someone summarize this?


I will need specifics to buy this. According to the comments she doesn't name the employer. That makes it hard to verify.

No.  You lost your job because you were disrespectful to your boss.  When he told you to STFU, you should have heeded his advice.  You are as incredibly stupid as those of whom you wished to gloat.

I have never worked a job where insubordination was not a possible cause for dismissal.
How God must weep at humans' folly! Stand fast! God knows what he is doing!

And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses. Nehemiah 4:14 (KJV)

Well, here we go! Hang on kiddies, it could be one heckuva ride!

Sounds to me like she went to work looking for a fight. And I can 'sort of' understand that, in a way. All the Trump supporters were ecstatic that he was elected. It may have been hard for her to resist sticking in the face of her co-workers. But it does sound like she got carried away.


They didn't dismiss her at first. They asked her to shut-up. That, apparently, set her off, and she then started challenging her boss. That is what got her fired. It had nothing to do with Trump. Sounds like she made quite a scene.


She went to work with a chip on her shoulder, and she got sent home. That really is all there is to it.

When I worked at Blue Cross, I saw someone get fired because of the opposite actually.
I transferred him to a supervisor because he was mad, and while on the phone with me he said that "Bill Clinton is the Anti-Christ" and "America is going downhill because of all the Got-damn Mexicans!"
Apparently the supervisor and the customer started arguing about politics and the supervisor got fired for it.
If you go picking a fight, you might find one you can't win.

Guy some advice:


Just STFU about politics. Avoid the subject with friends, family, and coworkers.


Good advice for me too.


All that matters is pulling that lever every 2 years or so.

Your advice reminds me of this video from last week:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2CM_It9R04" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2CM_It9R04</a>


Additional details:  "On my friend's @wirelessness flight from SFO to Mexico, some kinda scuffle broke out where an individual with a "plaid shirt and a camo cap" said something racist (about being "glad to have kept his guns") to an African American lady, and she began to cry and freak out. They separated the two of them, and then the Captain of the flight got on the PA and made this announcement.

Added on 11/15: Just a few things I wanted to add:

1) The individual that said what was said to the African American lady DID apologize to her after the crew separated them on the flight.
2) The pilot specifically asked if no one would talk about Trump for the duration of the flight.
3) Right after he said that, my friend started to record this video
