Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

More rallies are being held in protest of President Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily bans citizens from Syria, Somalia, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Yemen, and Iraq from entering the country for at least 90 days.

Comcast employees in at least four cities are planning to walk off of their jobs today in their own protest rally – Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; New York City; and Sunnyvale, Calif.

They have organized a rally through their internal Slack channel with participants expected to number around 1,200 people.

The protest will be documented on social media using the hashtags #TechHasNoWalls and #include. Comcast is considered one of the largest employers in the Philadelphia region with their headquarters located here, as such stands as one of the most influential corporations in the city.

Instead of punishing bad behavior for walking off their jobs, Comcast is rewarding the protest and offering employees paid time off to take part in the demonstration.  Now how many people do you know if given the opportunity to be paid to NOT go to work are going to take their company up on the offer? Organizers were very clear to state that their focus is not against Comcast itself.  This is intended to be a way for employees to speak their mind about the president’s executive order.  Call me crazy but I thought work was for….well, working??

Sources say some higher-ups at the company are aware of and supportive of the action. They have also stated that they will not penalize any contract employees that choose to participate. This would give the implication that they are paying employees to promote an agenda and make it appear that more Americans are against this temporary immigration hiatus than actually exists.  Rasmussen shows a 57% approval for the immigration hiatus among Americans.

Comcast spokesman John Demming released a statement saying –

Our primary focus is to make sure that all of our employees feel safe in their jobs, including while traveling. We have assured our employees that no one will be asked to travel to a place that would result in them feeling vulnerable in any way. And, we have enhanced our employee resources programs to help any concerned employee navigate through this matter.

The demonstration comes just a few days after employees at eight different Google campuses staged a walkout and protest against Trump’s executive order. Other tech leaders across the country at companies including Airbnb, Apple, and Microsoft spoke out in opposition against Trump’s order.

Why are so many companies against this temporary ban when just a few weeks ago Obama was banning Cuban refugees and no one said a word? Or in 2011 when Iraqis were banned for 6 months?  Why were these same companies not speaking out about the more than 26,000 bombs dropped by the U.S. on this region in just 2016?  If you are okay with bombing a region but not okay with vetting their people before they immigrate to your own backyard?  You MIGHT be a liberal!
