If Fresno Grizzlies Don’t Fire Someone for Ocasio-Cortez Video, the Nationals Must

    No should not be fired. Honest mistake. Not like some of our new Congress who are anti-american and make all their hateful comments. Nothing happens to them.

      Sorry, mam, but representatives elected to Congress cannot be titled “anti-American” just because you happen to disagree with them. They represent the viewpoints of the majority of their constituents (who are American citizens), or they would not have been elected. You are not “more American” than Rep Ocasio-Cortez’s constituents. And if for some strange reason you think you are, I would suggest you take a basic civics class and learn what a Democracy actually is.

    No one needs to be fired. Freedom of expression and speech shall not be infringed.! If we dont like your stance on tops, that we disagree with, we have every right to describe you as fear mongering and incompetent.
