    As disturbing as the website`s reported content is, the more disturbing aspect is the total lack of appropriate response by the government... Again.

    If a white person makes a racist comment they get fired from their TV show, lose all their sponsors and have to go to court to defend themselves, and then find out the claim did not have enough merit and are left to try to put their lives back together

    Way back in the olden days we had this weird thing called "Free Speech". I often wonder whatever happened to that notion.

    If he`s doing his job his personal beliefs on his personal website are irrelevant. Yes, even if he hates people like me. If I don`t concede his right to hate me I can`t very well be the wanker racist that I am. It`s only fair.

    No way of recovering from that. Between the racism and homophobia he published, he`s done.

    Gerry, his speech is still free as he can`t be jailed if he did not threaten anyone.
    That doesn`t me any modern organization won`t distance themselves from him.

    He still has freedom of speech, they`re not taking down his website, but having him as a representative of the federal governemnt and in a position where his radical views could effect his job is different. He really shouldn`t have made it past their background checks.

    No, gerry. The first amendment doesn`t protect your job for saying stupid stuff. It does protect you from jail, usually. There have been white supremacists that have been jailed for hate speech claiming that it was inciting riots.

    This guy is no different than a KKK member.

    Turdburglar I agree that he`s no different than the KKK. And the KKK has a right to free speech. You can`t be fired just because you are a member of the KKK. If the clerk does his job his political views, even if they are racist, should not be a criteria to fire him.

    What`s next? Any libertarians can`t have guv`ment jobs? No muslims? They`re pretty racist, don`t like gays that`s for sure.

    What a f*cking idiot. Why is it that people in those kinds of positions always get put on paid leave? I wish I had a job where I could f*ck up royally, and then get a paid vacation while they `investigate` it.

    Gerry1of1-"If he`s doing his job his personal beliefs on his personal website are irrelevant."

    Actually, if his actions outside of work could possibly reflect badly upon his employer, they have the right to fire him for it.

    This is in no way a violation of his free speech.

    Gerry1of1-"You can`t be fired just because you are a member of the KKK."

    You can be fired if it becomes known to the business`s clientele and adversly effects the business`s workings.

    Can you be fired for being in the KKK (probably, but not legally).

    Can you be fired for being a member of the KKK standing on a soapbox in a Klanhood while wearning your Starbucks employee shirt and badge whild shouting `death to the n******s` and it`s caught on camera and shown around the country? Yes.

    They would be if he were white, since he`s black I`m betting they don`t fire him.

    Gerry - it`s up to the employer. In this case the employer has a policy where all extracurricular activities must be disclosed. He misrepresented his website and intentions, which is probably why they will fire him. If he didn`t misrepresent his beliefs when applying, he probably wouldn`t have been hired. They do have the right to employ whomever they want.

    I guess that is why Klansmen wear the hooded masks.

    I do think that now days, that companies fire people all the time for what they do on their own time, which I think is usually wrong IMO...but this guy is talking about killing a f*ck load of people.

    My Brother had to fire a person a few years ag for an argument that employee made on a web site simular to this one. The employee wrote sonething that vaguely sounded like a threat and it was reported to the cops. They investigated and found his Job involved a fairly high security rating even to get on the premises and his security was pulled for the threats and my brother had no choice but to fire him because he had no security clearence to even be at work. This "person" (insert adjective and noun here) is going way beyond making idel threats and Also has access to weapons and potentionally damaging information. Even to the point he could be deamed a terrorist and be concidered an enemy combatant.

    this just proves the point that blacks can be just as racists as whites can be.

    Twenty years ago, he would have lost his security clearance and his job within an hour of this being discovered. He would have been given a copier paper box and told to clean out his desk under the supervision of two armed guards who would have then escorted him to the gate.
