Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

The next step in the culture war:  fire employees for their political views.

I’m all for it.  Start by repealing tenure, fire all the pointy-headed leftists in academia, save millions of young minds from their poison.

Next, career bureaucrats in the IRS and State Department who claim they’re “The Resistance” – out you go, to make room for true patriots.

Yes, this is a wonderful advance in employment law.  Glad the Liberals adopted it, makes cleaning house much easier.

Given the concern some “progs” are showing, suddenly, for federalism and limiting government power, you never know.  Anything’s possible.

  1. Nah. Progressives will never hold federalism or limits on the size of central governmental power as principles any more than they value free speech. They asserted the right of free speech when it was advantageous for them to do so in the 1960s and 1970s, but now that they have the power, speech with which they disagree is irresponsible and violent, so it must be quashed. Their adherence to decentralization will only last until they again hold the federal executive and legislative branches.

    As to firing employees for holding leftist politics, forget about it. Academia, bureaucracies, and corporations are mostly run by lefties. Political viewpoint cleansing will primarily run one way.

  2. How about this: amend the anti-discrimination laws to include political viewpoint.

    A baker cannot refuse to bake a cake for a gay wedding because gay is a protected classification. But she could refuse to bake one for a Trump supporter because political viewpoint is not protected.

    Protect it. Make them play by their own rules.
