The NHL Declares War on Trump Supporters…
Quote:A North Carolina Trump campaign staffer revealed a chilling allegation of political persecution on Wednesday, detailing his account of being fired from a charter plane company merely for his previous employment with the Donald Trump campaign.

Dawson Buchanan went public with his account of being purged from his job by the National Hockey League on Tuesday night, hours after an associate alluded to an instance of political blacklisting. Buchanan had been hired to work for a private jet concierge company that provides transit services to the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes.

[tweet]https://twitter.com/dawsonbuchanan_/status/1349175838521106436[/tweet]

The NHL itself allegedly made the demand that Private Jet Services fire Buchanan, solely on the basis of his experience working for Donald Trump’s campaign.



Buchanan explains that the company’s owner caved to corporate demands to fire Buchanan, openly admitting that his firing was entirely political in a conversation with the now-unemployed. The owner of Private Jet Services allegedly threatened to defame Buchanan and take bogus legal action if he went public with his claims of political persecution.



Big League Politics has reached out to the NHL, Private Jet Services, and the Carolina Hurricanes for comment.

Ironically, hockey’s following arguably trends more conservative than the fan bases of other American professional sports. They don’t seem to care how the league’s own fan base will react to treating Trump supporters as second class citizens; it’s an imperative to enact discrimination for any “responsible” corporation.

The NHL is no longer worthy of the attention span-let alone the money- of Republicans, right-wingers, and conservatives. Sports have great value to youth insofar they’re directly competing, it’s time to look beyond the meaningless spectacle of a left-wing corporation that detests you and your values.

Pro sports will have a lot less fans, viewers and income when the dust finally settles, they're never going to win against the majority of millions.

If Hillary! had become President on 1/20/2017, all of this stuff would’ve started 4 years sooner.

Yes. Make people hopeless outcasts with no future. That will certainly make them peaceful and full of the spirit of unity. Jeez---lol, remember when common sense used to be common?

I'm certainly not in favor of his firing, but I'm not so sure there is any payday in his future. There are no federal laws preventing an employer from firing an employee based on political affiliation. Some states do have laws, but I don't think North Carolina is one of them (though I don't pretend to be an expert on laws in that state).

Also, he states in his tweet that the company "fired me for their own financial gain". At 20 years old he might not be aware of this, but that's kinda how companies work.

Yes---Im afraid it may be time to add a new civil right. Like religion, people should not be discriminated against simply on the basis of political affiliation. I' d have no issue supporting such legislation and making it an Constitutional amendment.

It's discrimination. It may not be of a protected class, but imagine that you're in a state such as Florida where you can see who is registered to which party. Now, imagine your employer firing you for being a registered Republican or because you once worked for a Republican. Your employer may not like you because you're bald, but they can't fire you for it.

What is to prevent an employer from checking the party affiliation of all its employees and vendors and firing/terminating them based on that party affiliation?

Incredibly scary and sad that people are doing this to each other

Sorry Comrade, you don't support the party of "unity" and "equality (white people to the back of the line)." We must unfortunately fire you. Next time vote the way we think and you can keep your job.

The NHL does realize 98% of their fans are white and probably 75% are Republican? Talk about biting the hand...
