    Then why this post?

    Goodness gracious. For years I heard from this man that the principle of free speech would last eternal on his platform, yet as soon as someone speaks against his dear Zionism, they are let go. Interesting.
    You started the thread. What is the point?

    Depends on what her contract stipulated. I'm also not saying she shouldn't have been fired from Daily Wire. Frankly, I didn't think she was a good fit at the Daily Wire anyway. I was surprised she signed a contract with them.

    The point is as an employer, you shouldn't publicly trash your employees if you don't like their behavior or what they say. Now, everyone who disagrees with Ben's POV is going to walk on eggshells and not be their authentic self at the Daily Wire for fear of getting shit on in the public sphere and, eventually, fired.

    Meh.......that was nothing more then an Op-ed piece. Owens got fired for getting in a public pissing match with one of the bosses. Owens is outspoken on a lot of issues and the middle east issue is no different. This is another time where her words were used against her.......twisted. Owens said that genocide for any reason is wrong. That supposedly meant that Owens was being antisemitic, which I don't think she was. I think she is against Israel wiping out the Palestinians. This came down to Shapiro showing Owens who had the biggest balls.

    Stop it. She absolutely was, and is hiding behind the ‘ im just asking questions’. Its why i posted that piece because it spells that out pretty well.

    So, let your employees continue with disgraceful commentary? Gonna agree to disagree.

    Stop putting words in my mouth - that's not what I said, and you know it.

    Ben and his partners at DW could have pulled Candace Owens in, sat her down, and told her that her commentary was unacceptable and impacted DW's reputation. Then, they could have terminated her employment. He didn't have to trash her publicly. Also, the video of him trashing her was from some chucklehead in the audience. Ben didn't even know he was being recorded, most likely.

    You do understand that you can be a liar and law abiding citizen at the same time, right?

    I know why you posted the piece......the piece was crap. The author was inserting her own opinion as to what and how Owens felt. I don't necessarily agree with Owens said, in fact I would be doing EXACTLY what Israel is doing. I wouldn't leave any stone upturned looking for HAMAS. What Israel is doing is protecting itself from what happened to ever happen again.

    Now, Owens thinks their actions equate to genocide. I don't think that's to much of a stretch really, I wouldn't call it genocide but the IDF is going blitzkrieg to annihilate HAMAS. HAMAS brought this on the Palestinian people. I have asked it several times, what did HAMAS think would be the response to the music festival attack?

    Owens mistake was to have a public back and forth with Shapiro, it wasn't the substance of what Owens said, I don't for one second believe Owens is antisemitic and I don't think Shapiro thinks she is either.

    Yes, but what in the world does this have to do with our exchange?
