    So your cherry-picked list is clear evidence that EVERYTHING that doesn't jibe with MSNBC is deemed "Racist" by that news organization.

    The intellectual dishonesty, it burns.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    There are more ways to inhibit freedom of speech than jailing them. I seem to remember liberals hollering when conservatives tried to shout down politicians at "town hall meetings" claiming that it kept them from using their freedom of speech. Now that the shoe is on the other foot...well...not surprisingly liberals claim that only throwing them in jail is stopping free speech.

    Ask the employer. It's their company.

    Yep, and guess what? Those liberals were wrong.

    Some liberals said that. Not all liberals. Liberals and conservatives are not hiveminds.

    Shouting down politicians may be rude and boorish and get you kicked out of a venue; however, it's not a free speech issue.

    Funny how in one post you make a general statement about conservatives and then turn around and backtrack saying "not everyone's a hive mind". And I wasn't talking about one person being an ass at a venue. I'm talking about a whole group drowning out the politicians. I used it as an example of the hypocrisy being spun in this thread.

    I think the fact that employees of a hospital were making mental illness jokes might be why sensitivity training was ordered for the staff.
