Donald Trump: Macy's urged to fire him | PopWatch | EW.comAccording to the petition, Trump’s crimes against good taste are legion. Among other things, he has:
– Long engaged in sexist behavior. Trump has a long record of personally attacking women he disagrees [with] by calling them “unattractive,” ugly or fat. He once sent a target a personal note telling her that she has the “face of a dog.”
– Hypocritically complained about jobs being shipped overseas to China, despite the fact that almost his entire clothing line sold at Macy’s is made in China and other Asian nations.
– Use his public platform to deny the reality of climate change. Following Hurricane Sandy, Trump publicly declared: “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”
– Perpetuated the racially charged birther conspiracy, repeatedly arguing that President Obama has been lying and was not born in the United States.
I could care less about Trump, but Im concerned by the disrespect being shown for speech by americans of all ideologies against Trump and many others. While people are of course free to boycott and protest whatever they want, that doesnt mean they should use that freedom to try and silence others. I personally disagree with tons of celebrities, and never once have I suggested that their employers or customers should dump them simply because of the personal views that they hold or opinions that they make publicly.
Yet, this is happening more and more, primarily against conservatives. And I suspect the usual suspects will soon be in here to offer their opinion of Trump and make my point.
