    Only to silence the free speech of others. Is that a worthy cause?

    So, are you suggesting the protestors don't have a right to object to a CEOs policies by not buying the products he is selling?

    Incorrect. Eich is still free to voice his opinions as well as contribute to anti same sex marriage causes.

    People should never be without accountability to the rest of society.

    That would seem to be the logical conclusion. Eich could win his job back, look to see who protested against him, and then fire them all. Companies could fire people because in 2012 they voted for Obama and thus Obamacare.

    All of this appears to make sense to leftists.

    Like the Board would allow that. I think your confusion stems from the belief that CEOs are supreme dictators, when in reality they're just hired employees.

    You should be held accountable for your opinions or suffer the consequences. Is that your point?

    Great point. If this guy is a bigot then so is Obama and Clinton and a majority of the people in California. This is how we throw it back in their dishonest faces. We point out that most of America and the planet do not agree with them. We point out that except for weasel politicians, activist judges and some spineless corporate board of directors, they are in the minority view.

    Treating this guy like he is Fred Phelps is illogical. He donated to a bonafide political group which sought to sponsor legislation to make laws democratically within in the system--- he is entitled to his view. Isn't that what this country is supposed be about?

    Is your point that people should not be held accountable for their beliefs?

    Has I opined that CEO's are "supreme dictators" I would have said so. Give your head a shake and then deal with what was actually said, not something that you happened to imagine.
