I was going to add these bits and bites to Pete’s post, but it was taking too long to refresh.
HATE: Google’s firing of an engineer for committing a “thought crime” has encouraged an atmosphere of hate at Google, with employees tweeting openly that they are keeping track of colleagues guilty of WrongThink.
RACISM: If a Republican called a black Democratic president’s representative his “pet,” Keith Olbermann would be screaming.
ABORTION: A Kansas medical board is considering whether to suspend or revoke a Planned Parenthood abortionist’s license after he failed to follow the law regarding a 13-year-old’s abortion. He claims he didn’t know her age. Uhhhhhhhhhhh … shouldn’t THAT qualify for suspension?! I mean, sheesh! Don’t they do some INTAKE at these “safe and legal” abortuarites? You know, like taking the patient’s name, age, weight, medical history, etc.
I’ll add more in comments if I see anything brief, but interesting.
