This is nothing more than political persecution. Bad when it comes from either side of the aisle.
I heartily disagree that it’s “mere persecution”. It’s only a few steps away from being the Vice President for External Affairs (making a lot of money off cancer patients) to the same Vice President for External Affairs deciding who gets treatment —and who does not —based solely on their political affiliations.
This is nothing more than political persecution. Bad when it comes from either side of the aisle.No it isn't. It's exactly what we need more of.
Democrats are always the ones saying shit like that...You know the old "hey, everybody does it"... like you just did?
According to my friend at Roswell, her termination was the result of an investigation which showed she was posting her political activism crap using her employer supplied computer and during the time she was supposed to be working. She was also in violation of a conduct clause in her contract due to her actions.

Bet we didn’t hit the link and read the article CAREFULLY.
Negative. It’s a very real issue for employers, especially those in healthcare.
Think about it. She posts her “Trump supporters need to die” post on social media. She’s in a position of responsibility in a facility where people go for treatment of life-threatening illnesses. Now every single Trump-supporting patient who dies while in their care is a suspicious death, even the ones that were going to die anyway. The question now becomes whether she did something or ordered something withheld that led to the patient’s death.
She just opened them up to literally endless lawsuits and criminal investigations. The organization *has* to fire her unless they think said endless legal bills and investigators prowling their halls is a good idea.
Are you nuts?
By way of analogy, suppose that a trial judge blogged about his busy upcoming week of criminal court sentencings as "the satisfaction of stuffing more ni***rs into the state prison system." For that alone, within days, the judge would correctly be retired, resigned, or suspended and up on charges because the judge's credibility as a neutral arbiter would have been irrecoverably destroyed. If not, every case with a Black defendant or litigant that came before the judge would raise a legally compelling question about the judge's neutrality.
Similarly, with one appalling tweet, the hospital executive lost all credibility and value as a public advocate for her employer. Moreover, her retention would raise serious questions about the hospital itself and its standard of care for Trump supporters. Plaintiff malpractice lawyers would quickly cash in, with the hospital's senior executives and even line staff vulnerable to discovery over their political views.
In those circumstances, the hospital did the only thing they could: fire the offending executive for good cause.
