It seems this is another case of regressive outrage over a company bowing to the wishes of its consumers.  The backlash on social media was immediate and furious. Were they right if the station fired him because of what he said?  Probably not. Were they right to fire him because their consumers demanded it?  Probably so.  If the regressives here feel Kyle was wronged, they should start paying his salary for him.  Obviously, the listeners of WTAM aren't planning to do that.

Let's see, an on-air broadcaster who can't do his job (speak) properly, and he gets fired.

The NAACP is not Lindsay Lohan's boss, and it's not Kyle Cornell's boss, either.  I thought you conservatives were pro-business?  A business should be allowed to fire someone who doesn't perform up to expectations.

I find conservatives tend to be closet Socialists.  If their business is destroyed by Trump's policies, they want bail outs. The government, in the form of the USPS, should be competing against private industry.  Businesses should have total freedom unless their actions offends the snowflakes.

Maybe you can name a "closet socialist" who wanted bail outs and I don't mean company names.

And then there is the "save the farmers from my stupidity" program Trump started. 

 

Direct farm aid has climbed each year of Trump’s presidency, from $11.5 billion in 2017 to more than $32 billion this year — an all-time high, with potentially far more funding still to come in 2020, amounting to about two-thirds of the cost of the entire Department of Housing and Urban Development and more than the Agriculture Department’s $24 billion discretionary budget,

How about I just list the bailout programs? (I love the smell of facts in the morning)

  • Volumetric Ethanol Excise Tax Credit - $31 billion.
  • Intangible Drilling Costs - $8.9 billion.
  • Oil and Gas Royalty Relief - $6.9 billion.
  • Percentage Depletion Allowance - $4.327 billion.
  • Refinery Equipment Deductions - $2.3 billion.
  • Geological and Geophysical Costs Tax Credit - $698 million.
  • Natural Gas Distribution Lines - $500 million.
  • Ultradeepwater and Unconventional Natural Gas and other Petroleum Resources R&D - $230 million.
  • Passive Loss Exemption - $105 million.
  • Unconventional Fossil Technology Program - $100 million.
  • Other subsidies - $161 million.

The farm  price support system lasted until the 1990s. The federal government guaranteed farmers a high enough price to remain profitable. How did it do this? It paid farmers to make sure supply did not exceed demand. The government subsidized farmers to keep croplands idle in order to prevent overproduction. It also bought excess crops. It then either stored them or gave them away to feed low-income people throughout the world.Between 1995 and 2010, farm subsidies had ballooned to $52 billion a year on average. Of this, more than 6% went toward four "junk food" components: corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, corn starch, and soy oils.4 Many people wondered why the federal government was subsidizing food that contributed to America's obesity problem

 

Between 1979 and 2010, the corn industry received $20 billion in federal subsidies. Congress wanted to divert production into ethanol, a component of gasoline. The subsidies were meant to help producers meet a 2005 federal law that required 7.5 billion gallons of renewable fuel to be produced by 2012. In 2007, a revision increased the goal to 36 billion gallons by 2022. Only 6.25 billion gallons were produced in 2011.

 

  The Export Credit Guarantee Program, which finances U.S. farm exports. The USDA guarantees the buyers' credit when they can't get credit approval locally.
The Dairy Export Incentive Program, which pays cash subsidies to dairy exporters. It helps them meet the subsidized prices of foreign dairy producers.

Should be renamed NAAAP (National Association of African American People) if that's what they want to be called.  I'd personally prefer American!

To get fired for this is simply due to the head of this company being a coward, and is among the many cowtowing to the whiners. This guy did nothing wrong, certainly not enough to be fired for. People apologizing for DOING NOTHING WRONG, disgust me.  Nothing but a bunch of cowards in this country, when are people going to start standing up for what's right.

 

The whiners and easily offended need to put their big boy/girl pants on, and grow up.  

 

Guess what happens after your offended RIGHT ON Aug 2020.jpg

Symbolically, it’s interesting that you posted a “white” flag! Only white folks left for a white nation?

Why not the United States flag?

Colored is an old slang derogatory term.

Colored is an old slang derogatory term. 

 

 

When I was in grade school, they were referred to as Negroes (acceptable to them at the time) and they later referred to themselves as colored.  Now they refer to themselves as African American and I refer to them as Americans.

Only to the whiny babies, politically correct cowards. 

 

I was in a bus station years ago, and a colored/black person referred to the whites as "crackers"...i didn't run and cry to anybody.  Doesn't bother me. I'm proud of being the color i am, i don't understand why others of different colors aren't.  They are on video all over this country calling the people of the color white names.  We don't see the white colored people whining about it, running to a company and crying nonsense.  It's called life...geez, what happened to our people that they're such cry babies?!?!  Musta been in their raisin', or lack of...

 

Regarding the white flag and only white folks left for a white nation...I am the color white and proud!  Like i said, people need to quit the whining, put their big boy/girl pants on and grow up.

So who exactly is whining?

Fly your white flag if you like ...I still prefer the US Stars and Stripes, which does encompass everyone...except in trump’s world, he seems to prefer the stars and bars.

White people are 'colored' too. In spring we're white, in summer we're red or tan, and blue in winter.

 

I wish to be known as an equal opportunity offender.
