Free Speech At Work

Here's a story that had a little different resolution than the one that occurred in the Imus case:
Mein Gott! Sharon Hewitt, office assistant to Jane Pearl, the supervising judge at Kings County Family Court, has been removed from her position, after the court became aware of Hewitt’s long history as a neo-Nazi. Up until a few months ago, Hewitt regularly posted online on neo-Nazi sites under her neo-Nazi screen name. She’s been photographed attending multiple hate-group rallies and helped organize demonstrations in 2005 on behalf of veteran hatemonger Ernst Zündel, who was wanted in Germany for denying the Holocaust. Court spokesman David Bookstaver says Hewitt has been moved out of Judge Pearl’s office and into a general administrative pool where she will not have access to confidential information, and that the court can’t fire her for her Nazi sympathies. “As repugnant as one might find her beliefs, we live in a country where she is entitled to them, as long as they do not impact on her duties,” says Bookstaver, who points out that it was the New York civil service that employed Hewitt, not Judge Pearl. “She sat for an exam, she got it,” he says.
In contrast to the Imus firing, Hewitt got to keep her job. Now that is free speech at work, where an employee cannot be fired for views she holds or expresses outside of her place of work, in a manner that does not affect her duties. As upsetting and repugnant as I find Hewitt's views, I agree completely with the resolution of her case.

I would guess that the difference is that first, she has a government job whereas Imus was fired from a private company that was seeking to save its income from advertisers. And second, it wasn't a free speech issue with Imus and with the neo-Nazi, it was just making sure she wasn't privy to sensitive info.

Wow, I still find this upsetting to know that the government would hire somebody who supports hate-crimes (unless I am inferring too much here, in thinking that she supports crimes???).
Anyone else think so?

Dear Femalejew,

Your opinion is unimportant. What is important is the changing opinions of 270 million Gentiles ijn the Unietd States. I think you'd better start listening rather than speaking/writing.

wow. at this chris womak's site I found the guy, Chris Maynard (who I presume is the same as Chris Womak) who has an anti-Pollard article see here and seems to be a leading or trying to lead an anti-Jewish threat.

This is getting serious. So let's get serious.

If you read further at his site you'll come across: "Wake up people, the holocaust story as it has been presented to you is 100% bovine feces."

Then everything at her reunions is so well proportioned--she has just enough of music, and just enough of whatever amusement may add to the pleasure of byetta her guests; and still there is no appearance of design or management on her part.. He laughed phentermine lightly.. ' He did not much frequent social festivals after this failure, but he always told the story with satisfaction aricept and a quiet smile.. He saw that his friend nasonex was nearly frightened out of his wits, and that, figuratively speaking, he must step to the helm and take charge of the vessel.. He had dined at the right hand of omnicef the chairman, and he spoke in high terms of the repast.. he'll be quiet enough when viagra he gets up, said Podington.. For example, it is true that it is possible to fall out of a window, and that some care must be exercised when one is near a window, enalapril but it is inexplicable why the anxiety in the corresponding phobia is so great, and why it follows its victims to an extent so much greater than is warranted by its origin.. Let 'em bring cialis in their own traps, he commented, and Aunt Margaret fled, ashamed and conscience-smitten, to the kitchen.. Why don't you take off your life-preserver and let that viagra other man put it on his head? The two friends looked at each other and could not help joining in the laughter of the boys.. Another manifestation of the dream work which all incoherent lithium dreams have in common is still more noticeable.. There's not a single mirror left in the morphine house! she moaned.. Thus I have avoided stating whether I connect with the word suppressed another oxycontin sense than with the word repressed.. Besides, she did not forget that her flonase brother Sam had said to her several times privately that if his brer Pink wouldn't have so many notions and would let him alone in his management, they would all do better.. As far as our knowledge goes there is no psychic apparatus possessing only the primary process, and in so far it is a theoretic fiction; but so much is based on fact that the primary processes are present in the apparatus from the beginning, while the secondary processes develop gradually in the course of life, inhibiting and covering the primary ones, and gaining complete mastery over them perhaps only at the height nexium of life.. Another time I was sitting in a carriage, and on my lap an object tramadol in shape like a top-hat, which, however, was made of transparent glass...

Everyone involved in the District 15 debate go read what Womak (who posted above)has to say about the world. Then take a deep breath and understand the shared values that everyone on all sides of the school district discourse share and what it means to fight amongst ourselves and what it means to use words that lead to hate. It's a real eye opener and should serve as a call to keep things in perspective.

Hey cris ,
You should learn how to spell the name of the greatest country in the world. It's the
U-N-I-T-E-D S-T-A-T-E-S

I think you better do more learning and less writing.
