Skip to comments.A Big Move to Ban Realtor 'Hate Speech.' At Work. Anywhere. 24/7.

In what some consider one of the most far-reaching social policy moves in the corporate world, the National Association of Realtors, called the nation's largest trade organization, has revised its professional ethics code to ban “hate speech and harassing speech” by its 1.4 million members.
Under the new policy, real estate agents who insult, threaten or harass people based on race, sex, or other legally protected characteristics can be investigated, fined or expelled. Its online training sessions offer a glimpse at how difficult the rules can be to enforce. NAR The sweeping prohibition applies to association members 24/7, covering all communication, private and professional, written and spoken, online and off. Punishment could top out at a maximum fine of $15,000 and expulsion from the organization.
Mary Wagner, a Buffalo real estate agent who is white and lesbian, says the move, announced in November, fits her vision for creating a fairer society. She predicts thousands of complaints this year, given the realtor association's enormous size and the overheated climate of social media.
“I was thrilled to hear it,” Wagner said in a phone interview. “I think it’s long overdue.”

Always got to shove their perversion at you.
PDF of hate standards here:
The “everybody play nice, everybody is a winner” nonsense that has permeated schools for quite some time now has moved into the adult world. We are so screwed.
I would never hire a lesbian. Not knowingly. “Who did you vote for?”
If they don’t answer “Trump.” They don’t get hired.
“... based on race, sex, or other legally protected characteristics...”
realtor code of ethics? What a joke!
My previous dealings with a realtor resulted in them convincing me to accept a flipper’s low ball offer while they were simultaneously selling it for the flipper before we even closed.
I sued, they settled ... but not enough to cover what I could have made if they had truly represented me.
“She predicts thousands of complaints this year”
Sounds like the pervs have already made of list of their targets.
They need to add ‘political affiliation’ to the list
I’m getting the feeling RATs are calling businesses and pushing a ‘pay to play’ scheme using social justice
They are being threatened. What happened to RICO?
There needs to be a push at the state level to ban this type of speech control by corporations and trade groups. It will not be done at the federal level. This is just punishment without a jury trial.
Fiancé who works for a sizable bank comes home telling me about an email that went to all employees wanting (but not requiring) everyone to sign off stating they will watch a video on “unconscious biases” and focus on “inclusion” in their actions and speech.
Their “goal is 100% participation” but it is a “personal commitment and a personal choice”.
She chooses to prevent them from reaching their 100% goal. She says she isn’t signing it mainly because she doesn’t understand all the fancy bullshit language in the email.
And the Apostle Paul said:
“Their women exchanged the normal practices of sexual intercourse for something which is abnormal and unnatural.
Similarly the men, turning from natural intercourse with women, were swept into lustful passions for one another. Men with men performed these shameful horrors, receiving, of course, in their own personalities the consequences of sexual perversity.”
(New Testament, Romans 1:26,27)
My real estate agent is originally from Poland and grew up under communism. I bet that she really needs to watch words. While Poland was a challenge, she had some friends from the DDR who had it much worse.
You’ll get a bunch better environment with NO speech code.
I knew a woman realtor who could turn the air blue with her talk. Problem was she was right every time.
I only had time to scan each page; but what exactly did you find offensive in it?
Why would any realtor who wants to earn his/her commission commit ‘hate speech’ or fail to present themselves and their credentials properly, under the terms of this document?
LOL at the idea real estate agents have “ethics.”
“I was thrilled to hear it”
Wait until it bites YOU in the butt, babe.
It will be just like all other “rules” about speech — a CorrectThink-ing person will accuse Someone who “looks” like they don’t. And that Someone is *poof* destroyed, just like that.
