Technically, he was placed on administrative leave, while they search for a replacement… So yeah, basically fired.
What in the ever loving hell is going on with our society???? Seriously, WTAF?!?!
A police chief of a joint college police force, Mount Holyoke and Smith Colleges, has been removed from office for the unforgivable crime of “wrong think.”
In an email to the college on Wednesday evening, Smith College President Kathleen McCartney said that members of the campus community “have voiced a lack of trust” in Daniel Hect, who took over as chief of the two campuses’ shared police department on Feb. 18.
He was removed from office because, on Twitter, he had the unmitigated audacity to like two tweets, one from an unspecified user saying “BUILD THAT WALL!” and the other, gasp, when the NRA tweeted “Merry Christmas.”
Students recently drew attention to a few posts they say Hect previously had “liked” on Twitter, including one instructing President Donald Trump to “BUILD THAT WALL!” and another in which the National Rifle Association wishes people a Merry Christmas. Hect’s Twitter profile has since been deleted.
No, I am not kidding. Read the full article yourself if you don’t believe me.
Of course, the college says his firing has nothing to do with his political beliefs, but refuses to state the actual reason he was removed.
I mean, I get being concerned about something a person personally said or did, but liking a tweet? And especially ridiculously benign tweets like that?
This is beyond ludicrous!!!
Meanwhile, a UC Davis professor actually tweets that he wants cops killed and they do nothing.
America is under attack by flaming crybaby hypocrites on the left who actually are employing Nazi tactics, while they scream, point fingers and call those they differ with, Nazis. You seriously could not make this crap up.
Apparently, the college president wants to set a new precedent, where those who scream and yell the loudest get their way. Congratulations morons, way to prepare those students for the real world. (<- sarcasm)
