The Huckabeast's contention that somebody should get fired because they posted mean words about the president on social media is idiotic, at best.

Sounds like he needs a safe space.

The truth hurts, doesn't it?

You will not break  the Presidency, it will break you.
Every flaw you have will be magnified and broadcast to the word, and you are a very flawed man.

I will not be buying your commemorative medal from the gift shop.

Gee, I'm trying so hard to remember that one t-shirt his followers wore, what was it, what was it?  Oh yeah, Fu*k your Feelings.

And yeah, it's really rich that something someone said on social media should get them fired.   Someone should send all those old and recent tweets where Trumpalo said despicable things about others.

See? This is another one of those pesky differences between being President of the United States and being president of a business. The president of a business can fire people who work for him when they say mean things. The President of the United States works for the people, and he cannot fire anyone who does not work for him. And the President of the United States is expected to let people say mean things about him. For example, the last President of the United States had some orange asshole who was always saying shiat, and none of it was even true. At least the current President of the United States has people saying mean true things.

I see that Trump has tapped Huckabee Sanders for his Secretary of Ego Defense.  She'll probably want to do some reorganization of the Executive Branch to bring programs and responsibilities that have been scattered among several departments and agencies until now into the Department of Ego Defense.  The Department of the Interior's National Park Service and will transfer its crowd size estimation duties, to the new department under Sanders.  The Secret Service will be shuffled again, this time from the Department of Homeland Security to the Ego Defense Department for its rally size estimation duties with and for a new unit designed to keep POTUS safe not only from possible physical threats, but from those posed by actual facts that might pierce an alternative facts cordon that Kellyanne Conway established during the transition.  Kris Kobach will bring his Trump Really Won the Popular Vote/ Get Those Illegal Out of Our Elections Task Force into the new department.  The National Archives will also fall under the new Department of Ego Defense and will add an office tasked with updating and harmonizing all Trump Administration federal records documents with the latest positions taken by President Trump.

Certain investigation and prosecution duties will be transferred from the Attorney General/Department of Justice and Special Prosecutors to the Director of a newly created That Missing Evidence Must Have Been Lost In An Unfortunate Oversight Office within Sanders' department.

This is the Presidents Adminsitration attempting to use the bully pulpit to get someone fired for criticism of said administration.

Where's the droves of people bemoaning the need for "first amendment protections" when actual 1A violations are occurring?

Are we only concerned about the freedom of speech when it means providing a platform for Nazis and the  government isn't actually doing anything to stop them?

I'm impressed. The Republicans have completely insulated themselves from consequences. I don't think there's an outrage or gaffe or deliberate miscue that they would ever have to apologize or face the consequences for. We just expect this now, and they deliver.

Why do racists who think free speech means they should be able to say anything without consequences always want everyone who disagrees with them to suffer consequences?

I cannot ever recall a moment in living memory when I saw the white house demand that a TV channel fire someone over remarks that the President of the United States of America did not like or want to hear.

And yet, here we are discussing the President and his desire to crush the freedom of the press as if it were just another day.  its just one of those things now, I suppose.

if ESPN actually fires her, a LOT of people will be all over 'em for it.  they'll lose so much money so fast they won't know what hit 'em.  ESPN cannot survive on just the trumpers alone, and they know that.

Now if they do fire her, it looks like they're caving to the White House.  Jemele Hill just became invincible.

2017-09-14 12:49:38 AM  
seriously - I cannot recall any white house in MY life time EVER hearing a white house demand a reporter/media person be fired over comments unfavorable to the white house.  Can anyone else remember this being done?  None of the Bush presidents did this.  Obama didn't.  Clinton didn't.  Carter is a no.  Nixon...well, if anyone would it'd be him.  Reagan is a no as well.

this sort of thing just isn't done.

I'm sure the people who get up in arms about 'muh free speech' whenever a right-winger faces consequences for that speech will be along any minute now to attack this bullshiat. After all, it's an attempt by the government to intimidate a private entity into firing an employee over criticism of the government, which is a clear violation of the First Amendment.

yeah, but the trumpers won't see it that way.  I mean, yes - you are 150% correct in everything you just said....but the laws and common customs of this country mean NOTHING to the trumpers.  they're mostly giant balls of rage right now, and couldn't even really tell you why they're so mad.  they just are.  that's why its so difficult to explain facts to them - they just want to hit someone until they feel better about themselves.

ESPN did release a statement saying that had discussed it with her and she agreed it was inappropriate, or words to that effect.  That was before this.

The only analogue I can think of is when Ari Fleischer said, after Bill Maher got fired, that people should be careful what they say (not long after 9/11)
 
2017-09-14 01:18:37 AM  
No free speech in Trumpler land?

It's not like she picked up a torch, marched through the night, shouted "Joos will not replace us" and attacked people trying to protect school property.

Even then, she might have been one of very fine people and completely undeserving of being fired.

Many sides.

I live in the same same zip code Donald Trump was born in. I don't mean his childhood home (didn't know it at the time, but in my pizza delivery days I had a regular on his street -- found out from a Fark link last year when it was put up for sale). I mean when my appendix ruptured that's the hospital I spent a week in. There's a building next door whose sign says "TRUMP PAVILION for nursing and [somesuch]."

Miss the good old days when we had honest men like John Gotti and Jack Kerouac representing the area.

Not we, but they, yes.

I was just listening to Hidden Brain this evening on the NPR app and they were talking about people who assert 1st Amendment freedom of speech in defense of people who face negative consequences for their hateful racist speech.  Apparently, when people defend offensive speech in that way, it is because the speech expresses ideas that the defenders themselves share, and their defense is about shaping the future so that they can express those ideas themselves without negative ramifications.

None of them will be here to defend freedom of speech because correctly referring to President Trump as a racist isn't the speech they want to defend.  Even though this is one of the rare cases where it actually is a 1A issue because it actually is the government trying to curtail speech, rather than a private company choosing to fire an employee or block someone's access to their social media platform.

Of course not.  Trump, like many right-wingers, doesn't recognize other people as people (possibly excepting his children, and maybe even a small circle beyond that)

The rest of us are just NPCs to be manipulated, used, and then killed for XP
