Social Justice Warriors Get Atlanta Fire Chief Terminated
The Atlanta Fire Chief has learned the hard way that “freedom of speech” does not exist in the United States. He’s been fired for harmless thought crimes.
Surely we have figured out by now that the concept of “freedom of speech” is a joke. If the 1st amendment (that’s first on the list people) is not honored, than you shouldn’t have much faith that the other nine components in the Bill of Rights are going to be taken seriously either. The Fire Chief for the city of Atlanta, at the core of the nations 9th largest metropolitan area, has figured this out the hard way.
Kelvin Cochran, the former Fire Chief and a devout Christian, wrote a book in which two short passages (out of the whole book) professed how he believes the Bible says sex is for procreation purposes. The passages also addressed his belief that homosexuality is “unclean” and “inappropriate”.
For that absolutely heinous thought crime, the LGBT community was outraged, calling for his termination. In the end, they won: the mayor fired Cochran in order to quickly extinguish the fanning flames of the Social Justice Warriors and get back to business as usual.
The behavior of SJW’s is getting out of hand. They are first in line to cry outrage and insult at every perceived micro-aggression, while they wish to push their cultural Marxist agendas on everyone else.
They espouse what is supposed to constitute normal or acceptable human behavior, while people with conservative or dissenting opinions or beliefs are swiftly punished by doxing and mob-sanctioned unemployment. (It’s as good as a death sentence in this economy.)
This story demonstrates that those who claim to abhor intolerant behavior are the same folks who commit it, clearly indicating where the problem lies. This Fire Chief was not “bashing” the LGBT community as an official statement of the local government establishment, he was singled out for a couple of words in his book. The whole thing reminds me of a ‘South Park’ episode that demonstrated the paradox of tolerance. Being intolerant of people simply because they aren’t tolerant of the same things that you tolerate.
“Intolerance will not be tolerated.”
How low are these disingenuous anti-activists willing to go in order to ram themselves into the mainstream, disguised as the upholders of “tolerance” and “justice”? It appears there are no limits. Their integrity, honor and intolerant behavior rank right up there on par with their morals.
Social Justice Warriors ought to be ashamed of themselves. And for crying out loud, stop being so butt-hurt over every minor detail or perceived slight against whatever progressive-protected set you represent. You ruin the livelihoods of otherwise good people.
