Losing your job to an uninformed political ideology is so easy even a caveman can do it.

Did the voice guy identify himself as the Geico voice guy? (”This is DC Douglas, the Geico voice...” How else would anyone know who he is on a voice message?) If so, he is establishing his credentials on his employer’s name.
The name “Geico” means a lot, and Geico has spent a lot of advertising money to gain name recognition. Geico wants the name Geico to mean inexpensive insurance, not nutjob political ideology. Geico was completely in the right to fire this guy. And DC Douglas has no right to blame anyone else.
Just a guess . . .
He was probably fired for using the term ‘retard’ and not for suggesting that someone in the tea party movement would kill someone.
