    However, racist words and actions have consequences, and both are reaping those consequences now. I won't lose a minute's sleep over either of them. They're both scum.
    Scum have rights too and demanding they be fired for being scum muzzles their right to free speech.

    Now, as to the question: there is no inherent right to be racist, but there is also no real way to penalize it.
    Losing your job for your thoughts is indeed an example of thought police.

    If I were Stirling and wanted to continue airing my racist feelings in public without too much negative blowback I'd start a company with a racist image, racist employees and a racist customer base. Voila.

    But yeah you have the right to be racist, you have the right to publicly speak about it.

    You don't have the right to force employers or organizations to keep you in spite of your racist tendencies.


    So voice your opinion all you wish but you have to deal with the consequences.
    The two examples in the OP are not any ones employee but I still disagree. You should not be fired for having different beliefs than your employer.

    That is why in the poll the second answer was " racism should be illegal". The libs in here seem to be enforcing such a law themselves or at least attempting to.

    You can be a racist asshole but generally there are going to be consequences.

    free speech is saying someones opinions offend you. Demanding they be fired for offending you brings up the old adage, "your rights to swing your arms end where my nose begins".
