High School Football Coach Suspended For Saying Michelle Obama Has ‘Fat Butt,’ Gays ‘Abomination'
CBS Atlanta ^ | 2/5/13

Posted on 02/06/2013 7:05:13 AM PST by dervish

An Alabama high school football coach has been suspended without pay for 10 days for making derogatory comments about Michelle Obama and homosexuals.

snip

“You can go tell the principal, you can call the superintendent and tell her. I don’t believe in queers, I don’t like queers,” Grisham said in an audio recording that has gone viral, according to WHNT. “I don’t, I don’t hate them as a person, but what they do is wrong. It’s an abomination against God.”

snip

“Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190 (pounds). She’s overweight,”

The coach should get a good attorney, head for federal court, and clean their clock for infringing his First Amendment rights.

Lacking a written and published apology -- make them pay up!

Don’t worry, Your Royal Large Hind-Ass Mooch-elle, the late night comedians will never pick up on jokes about your fatty flab. If it were Mrs. Bush, they’d still be giggling in their monologues.

Yeah, but the first amendment won't (and shouldn't) protect you from saying something that your employer doesn't like while in the process of working that job.

The problem with the employment environment argument is one of hypocrisy. Had the teacher/coach said that Laura Bush is a bitch or that all traditional Christians are murderers, we would not have heard anything about his statements.

She probably would not like the whole country talking about her BIG BUTT

But if he has said Bushitler was a smirking chimp he would have gotten a raise.

So what happened to the teachers who indoctrinated children with the praises of Obama some in song? What happened to the teachers who preach two daddies to little kids?

It is called academic freedom when the left does it.

Oh, I don’t disagree with either one of you... and that’s the problem we conservatives have when working in a Leftist environment.

At the same time, if I’m an employer, I danged well want the right to fire anybody embarrassing me and my business with the kind of pablum that they spew. It’s way past time to be civil about things like this, for we’ve been more than tolerant. You are free to have an opinion, but if you’re working for me and taking my money, then stuff it until you get home.

we live in a culture that would prefer us all to be politically friendly/correct rather than be truthful.

I thought fairy tales were just imaginary, but I think we do live in the land where the emperor wears no clothes and we are supposed to marvel at his new outfit.

"My high school niece tells me crap the teachers say all the time, putting down religion and the like."

Then I would consider recording it and formally complaining about it. If you get no satisfaction, then put it up on youtube. As I just said above, I'm getting a little tired of being part of the tolerant part of our culture. If the Left wants to complaing at the drop of a hat, then I believe we could do at least as much damage - if we are motivated to do so.

"There is no freedom of speech in this country when you lose your job over some breath that comes out of your mouth."

Don't forget: the guarantees in the 1st amendment only mean that the government cannot prosecute you for your opinions. This has nothing whatsoever to do with private employers; nor for private reactions to your comments.

Obvious example: Opinionated sports figures tend to lose their endorsement deals.

IOW, 'Free Speech' is protected, but it can be costly: you're still responsible for the (non-governmental) consequences.

This is no different from China. If you publicly state a negative opinion of the party (at least not consistently) the local apparatchiks use the power of the state (which controls everything) to come down on you. You lose your job, your benefits, and make you a public pariah

They used to throw you in jail, so while they are improving slightly, we are going down to their level

We have become China.

In honor of MOOOCHELLE (aka Buffalo Butt) I was trolling on youtube and I found a classic song in her honor.

A song I hadn’t heard in years by the group Spinal Tap.

Reminds me of a lyric from one of Billy Joel's biggest hits, "you can speak your mind/but not on my time..." By the same token, the coach pointed out, perhaps unwittingly, the hypocrisy of the first Wookie to lecture us about eating healthy while swaggering around with a that bubble booty. I don't expect the Low Information Voters to realize this glaring contradiction.

Agree with civil discourse in (most*) work environments, but not the Leftist speech codes we have today that reflexively result in suspension or termination.

And I have a somewhat different view of employers and the employed. Business owners are entitled to their own compensation and the profits of the company. Labor, arguably the most important factor of production, helps to create wealth for the organization; it does not *take* the employer's money.

*24 years in the Navy-salty language the norm. Also I suspect coal miners don't “watch them grammar” much.

What about if you’re a public employer? I sense a school board fight coming, especially if the coach is a winner.

A good question, and this answer - whatever happens - is going to have multiple layers to it:

• This is a school in a rural area of Alabama ... next door to my own county, in fact. So I can say for certain the local community sentiment will be supportive to the coach... that area heavily (80-ish%) went for Romney.
• If he's a union member, the AEA (Alabama Education Association) is supposed to support him... but their knee-jerk reaction will be decidedly liberal, so they're likely to let him twist in the wind.
• The school system is really 'quasi-governmental' - operated by the government almost like a public utility. It tends to serve the public interests, so employees should probably hold any opinions to themselves to avoid hassles. But because this was done in rural Alabama, he might keep his job... after an apology and some 'training'... depending on how bent that school board is regarding 'diversity'.
• Overall, though, a "firing" is not the same as a "prosecution" for expressing an opinion, and thus I do not believe the 1st amendment applies here. Heck, administration officials are routinely fired (or they 'resign') after making comments embarrassing to the current administration.

Again: you're free to have an opinion... but you also need to weigh the potential consequences, for there are almost always consequences - and being right doesn't matter.

Yes, I understand the semantics of the employer/employee relationship - and I concur. Though admittedly, if I’m in the position of having me and my business embarrassed by an employee’s actions, then I might very well think of it differently in that instant!

I was VERY clearly informed that in the public schools, you do NOT have first amendment rights. Research it and you will find it to be true.
