I'm all for calling out stupid people for saying dumb s# but I usually leave the low hanging fruit used to smear one side or the other to rot on the ground.

Funny. I seem to recall a bunch of people on here crying about the death of the First Amendment when a Nazi was fired from a hot dog stand. I wonder where all those people are now.

I'm not for someone being fired every time they tweet something offensive. But this guy demonstrated an obvious hatred for anyone with political views that oppose his. That directly impacts his ability to do his job. That's specifically why universities should have policies like this. How can you possibly expect him to be fair to his students? If he was a construction worker, what impact would this tweet have on his job? Granted, these policies are often abused to police unpopular speech when they shouldn't be, and I'm against that. In this case though, this guy has no place influencing our youth until he lets go of his bigotry. If his tweet was hating all black people, I doubt you would argue that doesn't demonstrate a conflict of interest with being fair to his black students. This is no different except it was focused on a different group of people, in this case an entire political party.

I'll say it. I think Harvey was divine discipline for the Christians who voted for Trump's dominionist administration. Same goes for the fires that North Carolina and Tennessee experienced last year.
