Exactly. I'm more surprised that they haven't hired him back yet.

If they did one damn bit of research, they'd discover that Houston was part of the Clinton Archipelago.

Ugh. As much as I hate to say this, I have to be intellectually honest and say it. What he said is protected speech. We can't condemn speech we like then celebrate when people get fired for speech we don't like.

Let's be honest with ourselves. Do we defend free speech at all costs or are we no different than the SJWs?

As the lefties love to point out, the First Amendment only protects you from the government. Re-hosted, because fuck giving Randall "I'm With Her" Monroe any traffic

University of Tampa is a private school, and is such, can exercise their own First Amendment right to association. In this case, by choosing to dissociate themselves from the professor in question.

The leftards love to use this semantic argument whenever they're silencing anyone they don't agree with, so I'm not going to lose sleep over it biting one of their own in the ass.

Now had this been a state-funded school, then I would be all about a proverbial "tar & feather" campaign against the administration. State schools would not be allowed to fire someone for protected speech.

tl;dr - Private entity didn't like what an employee was saying, so private entity used their own First Amendment rights to show him the door.

Nobody mentioned the first amendment. Free speech does not end at the first amendment. As you correctly point out the first amendment limits the government from action restricting expression. However the concept of free speech goes beyond this as a fundamental social value. Yes a private entity has a right to fire their employees over statements, but they can and should be criticized for it. We can express our discontent, stop doing business with them, and try to persuade others to do the same. As recent events illustrate censorship is fully possible at the hands of private industry. I get the impression you do not agree with what you said and were merely throwing the left's words back in their face but I try to make this argument at every opportunity. Hopefully someone reads it and is influenced.

  • Though I do not believe the right of an employer to fire employees at will stems from the first amendment

He didn't go to jail for what he said - that's how speech is protected. What is not protected is the social consequences of what you say, in this case he got fired, and people will remember for quite a while that he is an actual piece of walking shit.

I think he should be allowed to say it without being fired but the left will only learn how important free speech is if they are forced to apply the same standard to themselves.

Nature wasted no time in sending a hurricane their way. My guess is they know shit's about to hit the fan and they want to do all the damage control before it happens.
