Well, as we both know, her post and it's fall out had nothing to do with free speech per se. That's what my post was getting at, is that for some reason, folks seem to think the First protects them from fall out of whatever vile thing they want to say. Now, some states have laws protecting private sector workers against action taken for political FB posts and my friend lives in one of them. Also, if I was the former employee and knew the BoD directed him to do this, I'd be at an employment lawyer looking into hostile work and board malfeasance. I don't know if there's a case there but holy shit don't let your board drive your personnel decisions!
I think the universal truth here is that people are dumb
