You're absolutely right. No one should be fired for what they say. It's tantamount to thought crime. And the outrage in the US, pretty much the last bastion of free speech, is troubling.
Mein Kempf and Holocaust denial are outright illegal in many Western countries. They believe, wrongly, that it is words and hate speech that leads to atrocity, but they don't realize that it is censorship that has a stronger correlation.

Black people didn't own other human beings in America like property and use that word to describe them.

Funny how the whole left blows up about this but hardly a peep about what Kathy Griffin did, which was 1000x worse.
This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president. twitter.com... …
It wasn't right when peoplel hung lynched Obama effigies, just as what Kathy Griffin did isn't right now.
This Kathy Griffin thing is so upsetting and disgusting. Jesus--what is wrong with people today? Have we lost all our humanity?

How is this even a news story? How is anyone actually outraged over this? How is Bill racist?
