Woman Fired for Flipping Off President Trump Motorcade
Apparently Leftists haven’t gotten the memo.
Obama left the White House. Leftists are no longer in charge of the nation’s capital, and the swamp is being drained.
Nevertheless, a few DC denizens continue living on Leftist muscle-memory, though it atrophies and begins to stink.
As HuffPo reported,
Trending: Women’s Soccer Just Got Kaepernicked
The picture, snapped by a White House photographer traveling with the president as he left his golf course in Sterling, Va., went viral almost immediately. News outlets picked up the story when it appeared in a White House pool report. Late-night talk show hosts told jokes about the encounter and people on social media began hailing the unidentified woman as a “she-ro,” using the hashtag #Her2020.
The woman’s name is Juli Briskman. Her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, wasn’t so happy about the photo. They fired her over it.
In a Saturday interview with HuffPost, Briskman, a 50-year-old mother of two, said she was stunned that someone had taken a picture of her giving Trump the middle finger.
Shocking to Briskman that photographers follow a presidential motorcade. And Leftists think their so smart.
As much as I couldn’t stand the policies of Barack Obama, when I saw his motorcade while in DC, I merely watched. So did thousands of people in the Tea Party Community, and not a single person disrespected the man.
Back to the Flipper.
The article continues,
As the photo circulated online, Briskman decided to tell Akima’s HR department what was happening when she went to work on Monday. By Tuesday, her bosses called her into a meeting and said she had violated the company’s social media policy by using the photo as her profile picture on Twitter and Facebook.
“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,‘” said Briskman. “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”
As I often say on my radio show, you have to look for the signs that things are changing.
There may have been a time when this anti-American, Trump-hating, self-loathing Leftists could have received an award for what she did. But that time has passed. Instead, Briskman was rightfully fired.
Briskman, who worked in marketing and communications at Akima for just over six months, said she emphasized to the executives that she wasn’t on the job when the incident happened and that her social media pages don’t mention her employer. They told her that because Akima was a government contractor, the photo could hurt their business, she said.
People get fired for stupid things on Facebook and other social media, as this link suggest. However Conservatives get targeted for things that rise nowhere near the point of termination.
Meanwhile some of the most mean-spirited, downright evil comments are said about Conservatives in the past without repercussion.
Recall the comments by the now former CBS executive in the wake of the Vegas massacre:
On Monday, Hayley Geftman-Gold, a top CBS executive, posted on Facebook that she didn’t have sympathy for the victims gunned down at the country music festival in Las Vegas because “country music fans are often Republican gun toters.”
She was immediately fired.
As Geftman-Gold story and that of Colin Kaepernick’s situation suggest, things have changed. Both find themselves unemployed from lucrative jobs. Geftman-Gold for showcasing the insensitivity of Leftists, and Kaepernick for the same reason.
Fired from jobs they love, because they stupidly revealed their anti-Americanism.
And what of D-List “celebrity” Kathy Griffith? Seen her in anything lately. Alyssa Milano remains broke, and the litany of other anti-Trumpers find their futures dim.
“How is that any less ‘obscene’ than me flipping off the president?” Briskman asked. “How is that fair?”
All good questions huh?
Briskman will continue to search for answers to her questions…on the unemployment line. And let’s hope this little gesture follows her in her search for employment.
