“Severin deserved it”.
...Severin deserved it!? Because he gave his opinion?! This is the problem with the issue of “free speech” in this country today. We dillute it a little more each day with “tolerance” and “diversity”. Libs say they’re worried about hurting people’s feelings etc. This kind of incremental reduction in what can and can’t be said will reduce us to nothing but cooking and decorating shows!
The radio station has the right to suspend, fire whatever on their own discretion. If his ratings are good, great! If not, hit the road. If listeners don’t like what they hear, they can turn it off. It’s very simple.
What in the world are you talking about? No one has called for any infringement upon Severin’s right to be a racist.
However, he did deserve what he got from his employer. He did deserve the scathing condemnation for Patrick, and he deserves more down the pike. It’s a wonderful system because the rest of us have the right of free speech to call Severin down in turn.
