Are you ok?

What a worthless post that is beneath you.





It was a great post, I think it burns you up that it perfectly captures the hypocrisy of the majority of the political threads on this board.



It was not a great post.

The onlyt thing that burns me up about it is that ante is usually better than that.

Using the OP's story to make points about how women are somehow not believed unless they have video when harassed is absurd.

As was the rest of the post. It was a hyperbolic strawman designed to deflect from even the possibility that a tolerant liberal boss would be intolerant, and thats why it got so many stars.

Because many on the left know how intolerant some on the left can be, and they mjust deflect from that.

Had this op been about a trump loving boss treating him like crap, and ante made that post, I would have said the same thing.

It could one way or the other but it would definitely be interesting!

Wow this post sure spiraled out of control as soon as the “tolerant” folks came in. Not a surprise unfortunately.

Are you sure his not just taking the piss and your just taking it way to personally?

End of the day, it doesn't sound like his being aggressive towards you in any way... his also not "harassing" you about your chosen religion or sexuality.

IDK, but to me, all these suggestions of going to HR, taking notes, recording and/or filing law suits (of all things) comes across as incredibly snowflakey.

I mean, what if he was doing all those same things over a rival football team?

Seriously whats the difference?

Or maybe I'm just totally underestimating how incredibly seriously Americans take their politics...

I gotta start putting the sarc emoji up! Luckily I spent 25 years in the Air Force, so my sarc level is at max. I did like the fight back or be crushed mentality of the AF though. Made me "man" up real fast.

Problem is, most companies hire peeps "at will" which means they can fire you for whatever. Now if dude is salary and under contract...different story.

Just to point out, the Ops most likely wanted reaction, is happening.

Circle "pleasure" of the right wing members, and attacking all those who aren't.

I swear this is so obvious.


I'm not right wing. I'd be supportive if someone was a socialist too.

If you do your job there is no reason for harrasing you for what you believe. Religion, politics, or any other ideology for that matter.

That's not what I read. I didn't see that post attempting to deflect away from the fact that people (not people of a particular political aligning) can be assholes.


What I read was a post that perfectly captured the irony and hypocrisy of most of the political threads written in tongue and cheek.

Who to believe and when.

When the benefit of the doubt is given and when not.

The benefit of the doubt is an ats member gave a story and asked fo advice.

I dont have to be certain the story is true, i just take it at face value. Much as I do when people ask for advice on ats when their computer breaks, or a loved one passes.

I suppose we could be snarky and make strawmen mocking all of these situations, but its dumb.

Had the OP came public with their story and named their boss, I would bhe the first person saying the boss should not be punished based on only the op's statement.

Please tell us that you kept the article he left on your keyboard. As you can see, everyone is advising you to document (and keep) everything!

And take pictures. Pictures of the bumper sticker on your car (for instance, because I assume you removed it immediately), pictures of things left on your desk, etc. it won't prove that the guy did those things, but it will bolster your case with dates and times that match your diary of the harassment.

I can't believe how unhinged you have become. Someday you will have to look in the mirror and realize that your defence of stupidity from liberals is part of what is pushing moderates to vote red.

I'm not sure anyone but a few die hard liberals take you seriously any more. It's quite sad, agree or disagree I used to appreciate your intelligent posts. But now just like a few others that are lost in liberal delusion I wish ATS had a mute button like twitter so I wouldn't have to watch you fall apart.

This doesn't shock me at all. I just went back to school after getting out of the Air Force a few years ago. So far I've been holding my tongue on political issues because I don't want to invite reprisal against myself with my grades or harassment by the immature teenagers and 20-somethings. I hope I can keep it up for 4 years lol

Yeah, I'm generally that way too. I still have good friends who are religious as long as they don't try to force it on me, we're great.

I don't hold it against people, it's just not my thing.

I was thinking that, too. I would have taken a pic of the bumber sticker left on my car, also. It might be a good idea to ask security or management if there are cameras directed at the parking lot. If asked why do you want to know, just say someone "vandalized" my car by putting an unwanted sticker on it and I would like to know who is messing with my car in the parking lot.

Wait you are 500 company with a TV with CNN on in the office..what kind of place is that? Lucky you it is a big company with big HR...Document all you can and record (it is 2018) harassment conversations with your phone. You can buy a micro recorder for nothing, get a pen that records 12 hours at a time they will never know...lol

Best answer I can give you (as i work in corporate world too) is begin keeping detailed notes, possible recordings of these exchanges.... Ultimately, if this behavior continues, you'll have evidence of dates/recordings/etc. to relay over to HR, and ultimately, any outside lawyers to help protect your worker rights.


Sounds like good advice.

I would argue that your degree doesnt actually mean you're smart. HR. Obviously.


Does this type of comment ever come from people who have a degree? 🤔

I agree with documentation and id contact a known conservative attorney sooner rather than later.


Hmm I have a degree. I don't think it makes me or anyone else that has them smart. It just means I learned enough about a certain subject to get a little piece of paper telling the world I know about that. No one's ever asked to see it or prove I have it. It just sits in a folder in one of my drawers under a bunch of crap.

Personally i've always thought being smart was more about your ability to learn and retain new information while connecting it to things you already know and then being able to apply it to situations.

On topic though...I don't have much to add, it would just be more of the same about documenting everything. I personally avoid talking about politics with most people. I just end up arguing with people from both sides.

Some liberals can't believe people like you and I exist. They think everyone that supports Trump in any way is somehow unable to be critical when he does something we disagree with.

Because they have taken such a hard line to disagree with everything Trump and support everything liberal, even when they are clearly wrong from a moral or constitutional perspective, they have completely lost touch with rational debate.

Gawd dang the libertarian world view is a bleak one.


Actually has more to do with my professional experience. I've nearly seen it all.

Fighting from within is only something you do when you have no other options. I do not get the sense that is the case for the OP.

Trust me, I have rarely seen an employee 'win' (even when they do technically win) in such cases.

The better path, when reasonably available, is to move on.



This. The fact is, even if you're in the right, and even if HR backs you up, your boss can find all kinds of other ways to # you over that aren't obvious enough to file complaints about. And it sounds like this guy is the type of douchebag that would do such things. Retaliation is a bad idea. It might make you feel good, but you do not have the upper hand in this situation.
