(Right Country) – Jo Jorgensen, the Libertarian Party presidential nominee, recently praised a company that fired an employee for posting “all lives matter” on her private Facebook page.
Why, exactly, you may ask?
Jorgensen used this as an example of the free market standing up to “systemic racism.”
Yes, and also an example of a fascist culture punishing people for holding private, totally non-racist views.
During a C-SPAN interview, Jorgensen argued that Rosa Parks was discriminated against because, “what a lot of people don’t realize is that that was a government-owned, government-run bus, and the only way that racism was able to go on for so long was the government was putting it into place.”
She then claimed that it’s harder for private companies to engage in ‘systemic racism’ because they would go out of business, before celebrating the fact that a woman lost her job for posting “all lives matter” on her Facebook page.
“There was a woman who on her private Facebook — this was highly publicized — her private Facebook put ‘All Lives Matter,’ and the company fired her,” Jorgensen stated.
“And what I’d like to make note of she wasn’t talking to or wasn’t tweeting a coworker, an employee, a customer, a client, anybody like that, and this was her private Facebook, not the company Facebook, and yet the company said ‘OK, we don’t tolerate that.’”
They note that someone might want to point out to Jorgensen that saying “all lives matter” isn’t actually…racist.
Is she actually trying to win over leftists or conservatives with this logic?
And they wonder why the Libertarians can’t ever make the whole third-party thing happen.
Under her ideal system, woke corporations would feel even more empowered to trample free speech, opening up millions more Americans to be viciously targeted by cancel culture mobs who intimidate and bully companies into policing their employees’ behavior.
Jorgensen also claimed that “private companies cannot discriminate as easily and get off as scot-free as the federal government.”
She apparently has completely missed the last four years of blatantly biased social media censorship, which has overwhelmingly targeted conservatives and libertarians.
This lady makes Gary Johnson look dignified and reasonable.
