The guy is a smug, self-righteous prick, but I don’t think he should have been fired over it. In America you have the freedom to make an ass out of yourself. This is the inevitable result of Progressives’s incessant cramming of political correctness down America’s throat. It has left the entire nation on edge and walking on egg shells.
A short while ago Adam’s employer Vante released this statement. (via Gateway Pundit)
Adam Smith was fired.
The following is a statement from Vante:
Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith’s actions against Vante and its employees.
Update: I’m in good company with my lack of enthusiasm for the creep’s firing:
