Does this mean only millionaire athletes get to speak freely about issues? Is ‘free speech’ really this lopsided?
A Michigan top-cop officially has less right to free expression than millionaire athletes.And she has the punishment to prove it.
Let’s recap exactly what is going on here.
Ever since Kaepernick, Athletes can hijack a TEAM sporting event for private purposes and displays all they want, because of ‘free speech’.
It doesn’t matter that they are at a company event, on company time, and their behavior is directly insulting to their customers. Their right to speak unhindered supercedes all other considerations.
Now look at what one lady cop said on her personal Facebook account, and just how ‘free’ she was to say it.
She shared this meme:
A top Michigan police woman will lose five days of pay for sharing a Facebook post in September that called NFL players who kneel during the national anthem ‘anti-American degenerates.’
Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue has been under fire since September 24 when she shared a meme on her personal Facebook page that called NFL players who kneel during the national anthem ‘millionaire ingrates who hate America.’
She has apologized, especially to black lawmakers, but hasn’t publicly explained why she shared it.
Governor Rick Snyder confirmed the penalty Thursday at the end of press release that announced many steps to ‘review the culture of state government.’ —DailyMail
Now WHY would a top cop possibly find a meme that calls these kneelers ‘degenerate’ something she might want to share?
Would it have anything to do with Colin’s socks?
Or this meme he posted?
So a cop can’t be personally insulted by posts like that. Can’t call cop-haters ‘degenerates’… even if the league averages one arrest a week.
Is Col. Etue’s personal Facebook account somehow LESS protected by the First Amendment than players on a field?
On what grounds is a fine justified?
And the ironic twist in her punishment?
She is being made to work… but not for any pay.
Isn’t there a word for an arrangement like that?
So the cop has to work a week for free, while the League — statistically speaking — will continue to put the police force busy after hours.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
