Teeing it up: A Round at the LINKs: (political beliefs and your job edition)


More and more I know people who claim they have lost their jobs or were passed over for promotion because of their political beliefs.  Last week rumors swirled around “The View’s” Elisabeth Hasselbeck being released from her contract because her political views were clashing with the audience.  We often hear of conservative actors and actresses keeping their political beliefs and activities private because they fear of being blacklisted by a liberal movie industry.  Just a few days ago a friend of mine who is liberal and voted for Obama learned that the owner of the company she worked for let her go because of her political beliefs.  This is a trend that appears to be on the uptick in a nation that is becoming increasingly politically divided.  And this divide is a very real thing.

I have always held the belief that just because you have a right to express your political views doesn’t mean you have right to be free from any actions or reactions they may cause.  Political views can cause a great deal strife within the family, with neighbors, and with co-workers/bosses.  If you’re going to stick it out there and announce to the world where you fall on the political spectrum be prepared to reap the consequences, because nothing is more divisive than politics.  So do I feel bad for people who lose their job or are passed over for promotion because their political beliefs are in conflict with the company owner?  I do not.  The way I see it is if you’re not smart enough to know the political views of the company you work for and you express political views that are in direct conflict with company/owner views then ready to accept the consequences of this action.  You may have a right to express these views; but nothing says you have to.  So when you volunteer them up, it’s a personal choice.  We might be free to believe and say what we want in America, but that freedom does not shield us against the potential backlash our opinions may generate.  I know this might not be a popular position with the “it’s not fair crowd,” but whoever said life was going to be fair.  That’s my two cents for what it worth.  Now on to the LINKs.

Below are links to outstanding conservative articles.  Please take the time today to visit the links and when you’re there hit their tip jars if they have them.  These good people work hard each day to bring you the truth.  So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the LINKs.
