But liberals NEVER, EVER have to watch what they say. Case in point...

The HR Department at one tech company I worked for invited the whole company to join them to have free milk & cookies...on Harvey Milk Day. I was so offended I was spitting nails, but I just kept my mouth shut and head down.

I am very happily retired from all that crap.

A guy I know well from church worked for a large telcom...Sprint I think. A few years ago when the gay marriage thing was a big issue the companies social site had an open invitation for people to express their support. They of course figured that everyone would support it. However the way they worded it didn't say you had to support it to post or respond. You could say anything about it. So all the leftists got on saying "this is great" and "it's about time" and all kinds of supportive comments. My friend commented as well and didn't toe the line. He used bible support to make his case. He didn't call names. He stated the facts. He was a great employee.

He was fired almost immediately on some trumped up charge. Luckily he knew what to do so he screensaved everything he did and the companies invitation for opinions on the topic BEFORE the company took it down.

A major religious freedom legal firm took his case pro-bono and it has been winding through the courts for a while. He's going to win a big settlement.

The point is that leftists will say and do anything to punish those who dare to disagree with their agenda.

We had a drive for “United Way”... well know for Ceo’s stealing out of the pot...Our company HR Dept. put a whole lot of ‘pressure’ on employees to donate.... Even when you say you don’t donate to the organization they continue to press you because they have ‘participation goals’ to reach.

I used to work for a Koch company.

I was asked, by HR “Why are you donating to a PAC other than Americans for Prosperity? “

I said I preferred to keep my political opinions at home.

Another place tried like mad to get me to donate to the United Way, up to the point of publicly shaming (posted my name on the BB) me as being “Greedy”. When I posted my charitable donations for the last two years, it made the blue in management mad, but the union guys loved it!

Work is for work, but it is best to figure out what team the management plays for.
