Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – STFU edition

A quickie this week.

My boss told me to shut up about Trump so I plan to wear RED all next week during Impeachment Trial.

I cannot go into details because I don’t want to harm the innocent parties involved, but here is the basic true story:

My workplace is exceedingly liberal. A few conservatives, but we’re outnumbered. I don’t hide my views, but I also don’t get in fights with others. Honestly.

Seven or eight months ago, maybe longer, I was told my comments offended people and could get me fired. I asked what the specific comments were, and no one could tell me. The response was basically “We all have heard you say things…”

A few days into the new year, I was again read the riot act, told that if I offend anyone else I will lose my job. One of the bosses (there were two) told me not to even talk about the weather or sports. Only work related words should be coming out of my mouth.

I told them I have been very careful about using any language that could be construed as offensive. I asked again for what exactly was my offense. No one could give me a quote.

So, I am doing my best to watch out. I am a good employee and have been that a long time.

What I think I’ll do this week is wear RED (not a hat of course LOL) during my work hours. The red will be in solidarity with MAGA. I will do my best to remain quiet.


By the way, I’d appreciate your prayers. Feels sometimes like there are traps being set for me.I also think God may be teaching ME about humility. I need to honor my supervisor even when I think they’re putting unfairness upon me. Such a posture would show trust that my Creator is able to take care of my situation. I wouldn’t be relying on my own intellect or value, but on HIM.

Well, your “creator” might have a different idea.

[[The response was basically “We all have heard you say things…” ]]

And your response to them is “So what? I’ve sat here and listened to your offensive nonsense over and over- What gives you the right to arbitrate what is offensive and what isn’t? You offend me!”

More good advice after the jump…

From the “I’m not only not a lawyer, I’ve never even MET one” brigade :

Sounds to me like you have a Hell of a discrimination lawsuit.

Get a lawyer BEFORE you get fired.

You might not have to work again after they fire you and they settle.

And that I’d IF you can get a lawyer to take the case. Even though we are overrun with them, they often don’t want to touch these cases.

Only because they insist on being paid, and they only get paid if they win.

Work related lawsuit settlements are very small. You only hear about the very rare exceptions. Normal amount for a non minority lawsuit (even with extreme violations) is around 30 to 40k at most. Also, been there and done that. and my situation was outrageous.

Should you get fired, publicize the event, and drive them into bankruptcy!

“Tell your boss that THEIR comments offend you-”

… and be escorted out the door.

Why is it necessary to talk about politics at work at all?

The golden rule applies. He who has the gold makes the rules.

Unless you are being discriminated against in a manner that is against Federal or State Law(a protected class) then you really have no case.

As others have said don’t talk politics at work..

I will likely be the only person on this thread who’ll say this, but say this nonetheless:You do not have freedom of speech @ work and your political affiliation is NOT a protected class.

In short, your employer can fire you for your political speech @ work.

To: SoFloFreeper


It is not your business.

You are an employee.

STFU at work.
