I support free speech for all - even lefties. Was hostile and not properly done but don’t feel someone should be fired to expressing political views unless there’s some other interest at stake.

“Hoist with your own petard”: Injured by the device that you intended to use to injure others.
There’s a lot that going around with the left recently.
They’ve just gotta learn to dial down the hate ... heh.

Key Points:
how smug he is
his delight as he anticipates inflicting harm

Sadistic and Narcissistic.

Excellent.

This has totally backfired on liberals. We are not taking their bullsh1t anymore.

They had better get used to it, they better get used to being on the losing end of stuff for a long, LONG time.

” he put up a video of himself bullying a Chick-fil-A drive-thru employee “

Bullying the employee shows lack of character...

Posting the video shows lack of common sense...

How did this guy even get Peter Principled into a responsible position with a profit-making firm???

”I’m a nice guy, by the way … totally heterosexual,” he says to the worker. “Not a gay in me, I just can’t stand the hate.”

I disagree with everything he said.

I think the employee handled the situation very well.

I always try to keep from venting my frustrations with ‘front line’ employees, who do not control a business’s practices....because I’m not a chicken shi’ite anal orifice....but that’s just me.

He was bullying a hard working young lady who was just trying to earn a living.

I imagine his company was embarassed by one of their executives acting in such a manner in public, then posting the video on YouTube. To me he was salting the wound by gloating on YouTube.

Read the press release from the company and see if you don't agree with their position:

We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

"Not a gay in me.”

Parsing...notice he was restricting his declaration to the present. I wouldn't want to speculate beyond that.

Also, while he lost his position with Vante he might just have earned Tenure at his side gig with his reprehensible behavior.

>>Was hostile and not properly done but don’t feel someone should be fired to expressing political views unless there’s some other interest at stake.<<

He was fired for posting it on YouTube. THAT made it look REALLY bad.

It wasn’t his views, it was his bullying of some teen worker at a drive thru window. She even said, “This is making me very uncomfortable.” He then asked her how she could sleep at night! He harassed her when it wasn’t even her fault then proudly posted it for the world to see.

GREAT, SIMPLY GREAT. I saw his video this morning and read the general public responses on Utube and they were stomping on him. I also read all Freepers had to say about this on our thread. Some of us Freepers were sending messages to that company after it came back on line and I think some Freepers called them.

Praise to that company for immediately dumping him. Never thought they would do that and certainly not that fast. GREAT! SO GREAT!

This jerk isn’t being punished by the govt, so “Free Speach” is not at play. Also, what about the company’s rights? Don’t they have the right to choose who works for them? And to fire people who create what was likely a pending PR nightmare for them?

“....don’t feel someone should be fired to expressing political views....”
***************************************************
Sorry, that wasn’t why he was fired. He was fired for bullying and intimidating a young lady who was just trying to do her job professionally.

This prompt and correct action reflects credit on his former employer in my opinion.

Indeed. People who fear losing their jobs for speaking out.. Oh wait, that already IS the case today. However, there surely MUST be more to this story. He wasn’t even at his own job when this occurred. Big deal. Gotta be something more here.

Caused potential harm to employer. His actions could affect the sales of his employer. If this clown is representative of a Vante employee, I would not do business with them. Read the fine print of your employment agreement.

I thought this might have been BS -- but a medical device company called Vante in Tucson really does (did) have a CFO named "Adam Smith".

(So what kind of doofus would put an obnoxious video on the internet under his real name??????)

This is not a free speech matter. The right to free speech under the Constitution applies only to government action. There is no right to free speech whatsoever in the private sector.

my guess is that this wasn’t the only reason he was sacked. He was an ignorant jerk, but if he was a very good employee, they could have overlooked it and have him issue an apology.

It was at lunchtime -- company time -- on a weekday.

Never seen a more thoroughly satisfying fisking.

I didn’t watch the full video.

I’d approve of his right to hold up a sign and shout in a safe place.

Don’t want Christians fired for posting pictures of themselves eating at CAF. I’ve read about Christians fired for telling co-workers they oppose “gay marriage.”

When do polygamists start suing?

Many execs have morals & ethics clauses in their contracts. They can be fired for unethical behaviors arising from any time. I once had a contract that required I dress appropriately at all times, never to be seen as a bum or unshaven. That sucked. I’ll never sign one of those again.
