One of the alleged benefits of getting a government job, especially one with the federal government, is that it’s said to be almost impossible to get fired. Like many such stories, there’s both some truth and some exaggeration in that statement. What might be more accurate to state is that the offenses that must be committed to get fired from some government jobs can be arbitrary, politically skewed, or just not make much sense.
For example, a college professor at a public university can be treading on thin ice if he or she expresses a constitutionally conservative viewpoint. Discussing racial issues without filtering one’s comments through the lens of leftist political correctness can end a career at once. And those examples don’t include the even more egregious examples of government employees being dismissed for holding the “wrong” political views.
What won’t get you fired, at least in the state of New York apparently, is publicly threatening the lives of people including the incoming President of the United States, provided you are a hard-core leftist and make those threats against conservatives.
Here’s the example: “After the victory last month of President-elect Donald Trump, an employee of the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities reportedly posted a disturbing message to his private Facebook page wishing death on the former GOP nominee’s supporters.”
Mr. Walz wrote, “’To all my friends that live in red voting states,’ the screed began. ‘You have 2 months to move. After that, if you don’t do not consider us friends. I want you dead. I want your families dead. I want your wives, husbands children and grandchildren dead. Not just dead but horrible painful deaths.’”
We understand that Mr. Walz’s Facebook page has been suspended, and he has been directed not to report to work while this is under investigation. Keep this guy away from the rest of us, too.
As usual, the mainstream media seems rather uninterested in the story. They’d much rather chase down even the most flimsy of opportunities to attack Mr. Trump than deal with a threat to the lives of his supporters.
The story continues by observing that, “What Walz allegedly wrote was disturbing, to say the least, as well as a potential threat against Trump supporters. Some might argue that an authority figure of some kind should have investigated him, but apparently, none did.”
Major media outlets must have found this story to be too trivial for their attention: “Nor did the liberal mainstream media, known for eagerly peddling hoax stories involving Trump supporters, show any interest in the story. They ignored it while instead pretending there was an epidemic of Trump supporters harassing Muslims or burning mosques.”
Leftist politicians and their allies in the mainstream media have a lot of gall complaining about the purported epidemic of “fake news,” while these organizations use their position of prominence to produce “censored news” – almost exclusively written from a leftist position to support leftist causes and politicians.
Should any of our friends in the mainstream media be reading this, please pay attention: The reason the alternative media exists is the same reason new products are created and displace old ones. The existing products no longer serve their purpose, at least not as well as their newer replacements. If that’s too obscure to grasp, then we’ll simplify: The alternative media exists because you don’t report the news.
