(Here’s the background.)

But he said he was sorry!

Update: my team member even apologized for his tweet. That’s what rational and thinking people do. I consider this “case closed”.

Heads up to my friends, colleagues, and clients: So-o-o-o-o-o-o…Some people on Twitter decided they didn’t like what one of my team members said on his PRIVATE Twitter feed. These people think that now their job is to try to disparage ME and my company.

They have been trying to spread ridiculous things about us on Twitter, on our Facebook, on our website, and anywhere else they can find. What they don’t know is that for all of their snide comments, it still remains that private citizens can express their opinions on their own Twitter. If you don’t like what someone says on their own private space, take it up with him or her.

Here at Writing It Right For You, we believe in free speech and the 1st amendment. Since THE COMPANY didn’t say anything that you didn’t like, don’t come to THE COMPANY to air your grievances.

This is something that so many people don’t seem to understand: yes, the First Amendment gives us the right to say all kinds of stupid stuff. What it does not do, however, is provide immunity from consequences for saying things. You have every right in the world to tell your boss exactly where he/she can stick that suggestion just given to you but the First Amendment won’t protect you from being fired for doing so. There is some responsibility that goes along with exercising one’s First Amendment rights and, in the social media age, one’s “private” musings still reflect on
a person’s employer and have consequences.

What Ms. Hilliard Owens doesn’t grasp is that Brauer’s vile behavior ceased being “private” when it tweeted it to Amanda Carpenter.

She is also unaware that this isn’t Brauer’s first misogyny rodeo.

Or maybe she is. It is difficult to imagine a man with that little self control hiding it well.

Apparently, not all speechifiers are held to the same standard. Hillary, Obama, and Susan Rice haven't been fired after the monster lie they told about Benghazi. REMEMBER BENGHAZI!

Silly Ms. Hilliard Owens still believes twitter is PRIVATE. That makes me laugh.
I give high praise to websites like Michelle Malkin's Twitchy.com that tracks and posts the vile things people say on Twitter.
Big mouths like Allan Brauer who spout off stupid things on Twitter are only sorry when they are called out for their remarks.

So, instead of being civilized and apologizing, and saying that his personal outburst does not reflect her views, or those of her company's, she did the tried and true of attacking those who complain, because that's what these barbarians do. No gentility. No class.

And these people head up a communications company? Because they know oh so well how to get their message out and get it well received? Really?

That's cute, expecting a Democrat to apologize. To apologize would be admitting there's a situation that they didn't win, and all they care about is winning and accumulating power.
