A Washington, D.C. deaf college has suspended its “Chief Diversity Officer” after another faculty member complained the woman signed a petition supporting the reversal of Maryland’s same-sex marriage law.

The woman claims the incident is a misunderstanding and groups on both sides of the issue are calling for her to be reinstated.

In newspeak, “diverse” means “same as approved thought” apparently.

“groups on both sides of the issue are calling for her to be reinstated”

Ironically, firing her could be seen as a blow to diversity. One can almost see their cognitive dissonance.

Diversity means having the same opinion I see...

perhaps we need a petition signer protection law.

such that no person may be discriinated in either public or private for signing a petition.

Much like there is a bankruptcy law that states filing for bankruptcy is protected such that an employer may NOT fire you as a matter of federal law just because you have just filed bankruptcy.

Let’s put this in the right prospective. They will find a lawyer for the university to word the firing, and just offer her $100k severance pay. She will smile and just walk out the door. Her lawyer appears in a week...with two requests. The pay and retirement she missed....roughly $2.5 million. The second will be damages...which she will ask for $8 million in my humble opinion.

In a Maryland court, the university cannot win. They will suddenly find the original lawyer was an idiot, and they try to up the ante to the gal for $1 million, which she will refuse. Final sum? I figure she will settle for $6 million in the end.

A rigged deal? Oh, you might say that. Even if they try to bring her back....the hostile environment with the unfriendly diversity crowd...(gays can’t accept friction against them)....so they still end up screwed in the end.

I will predict this....once they do finally get rid of her....there will be no diversity officer for this university.....end of the story. They lost millions, and she will be lounging in Florida within six months with tons of cash.

The Nazis passed laws preventing those who are not members of the party in good standing couldn’t get promoted.

Remember the story from a few weeks ago of the BLACK school superintendant candidate in SF who was dropped when it was discovered that he is against gay marriage?

Where was the outcry from the black community?

It's getting creepy out there. Now the gaystapo is searching databases, chat rooms, and even petitions so they can exact revenge on those that don't comply. They did this in WA state. The pink Mafia wanted access to petition signers. To make sure everyone who signed was legit? NO. So that they can harass anyone who DARES to disagree with them. And Lord help you if you own a business.

PAY DAY!!! IANAL, but there are several constitutional amendments violated here. Right to associate, freedom of speech, right to petition, and I'm sure some civil rights laws. Could be fun if they get a good lawyer. Could become independently wealthy at the college's expense, sort of like Duke University.

Like being a union member and being docked for not showing up at pro-Obama rallies. Not too far from punishing people for voting for the Republicans.
