So, the state government can do whatever they want, and you can't complain. No more complaints, then, about states that don't accept certain types of marriage. it isn't the federal government, after all.
If someone can legally be punished for their speech, then some form of government is involved. Make up your mind, already. Either it's always wrong, or it's only wrong if it's the federal government. You can't gave it both ways. If someone is fired for free speech, that's a violation of their rights. Unless they are shouting and disrupting the work environment, they shouldn't be able to be fired for simply holding a different opinion on this or that topic. Nor should social injustice bullies be able to demand that someone is fired because they don't like the person's opinions. When that is allowed, freedom isn't present.
Odd, because that's what you are claiming. Certain groups demand free everything, and then claim that others don't have the same freedom, and you defend them. When others, myself included, point out that this isn't fair, or freedom, you act like the other person is confused. We aren't confused at all.
No one complained for being called a racist hen they were one. People complain about being called racists for being born into white skin. Catering to people that behave in such a fashion is flat out idiotic, and the universities ought to know better.
As for hypocrites, that would be the people claiming others are racist for being a certain color. That is a perfect picture of real racism.
