Lib Who Berated Chick-Fil-A Woman Fired

*subhead*Buh bye.*subhead*
Ooopsies. Maybe filming yourself being a complete jerk to a poor innocent young woman is not the best idea.

Adam Smith, the jerk from the video we posted earlier today, has been fired from his job as CFO of Vante.
TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante:

Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.

The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.

He obviously doesn't know what hate is, because he had it on display.

The woman in this clip handled herself and the situation beautifully. God bless her.

Obama is supposed to protect innocent citizens from verbal assailants. Obama is calling the stunned victim 'STUPID' Do not vote for this man.

Talk about decisive action!

And traditional marriage supports are hateful? Give me a break this guy needed a reality check and got one.

Dan Anderson said...

If Obama had a CFO, he'd look like Adam Smith!!!

Renee said...

Nice response in being diverse on opinions, but in a civil manner. There was a public sidewalk for his opinion, free and protected by law to use.

Mary De Voe,

It's simple, Obama = Adolf Hitler.

Vox Cantoris said...

It's a travesty that his name is Adam Smith!

Redfeather said...

So thankful this moron was dismissed.

Hey, all Faithful Catholics, go to the Archdiocese of Chicago blog-site and give your support to Cardinal George for his beautiful, open, truthful and holy letter in regards to Chicago values. I'm sure he would appreciate it.

While you're at it, why not drop Cardinal Sean O'Malley a line at the Boston Archdiocese and ask him why his deafening silence on the matter!

Renee said...

I wonder if Adam M Smith was your troll days earlier?

University of Arizona did not invite him back, not sure if that decision was made prior to this incident, but they made a point to mention respect for diverse viewpoints.

Renee said...

Redfeather, the relationship between the mayor and Cardinal O'Malley is complicated. No need to make a statement, here in Boston we all know what the mayor was wrong.

Videotaping yourself doing something like this is like putting a return address on a ransom note.

Margaret in Minnesota said...

I stopped by to tell you that this guy had been fired but see that you've already posted an update.

His video depressed me for two reasons: one, he was so, so very misguided & unpleasant, and two, I KNOW I would not have handled the situation as graciously as that young lady.

Lots to ponder here...

Becoming a Pompous Jerk (I was going to use a different word, but....) requires a much higher level of requirements now.

If this is the caliber of professors teaching our children, it explains a lot. I wonder if he was fired for taking a 2 hour lunch.

Steve "scotju" Dalton said...

Adam Smith, eat more crow!

Robert said...

Good one Steve, but it should be "eat mor cro!"

Redfeather said...

Prithee, tell, Renee. What is the relationship between Cardinal O'Malley and the mayor of Boston? Certainly the Cardinal upholds Catholic values which would trump any dubious political loyalties, no?

Renee said...

There are no political loyalities. In a world of social media, everyone expects an immediate response, sometimes it is not needed. The local media actually confonted the Mayor and asked him should the Catholic Church leave Boston. The Mayor is already suffering the fallout, why make a statement

As a Smith by birth, I'd like to kick him out of the family! (were any other Smiths here ever told a family legend that Adam and Eve were named Smith and as 'the family' became more and more sinful they lost the right to the name Smith? I thought my dad made that up and then I met a man named Smith and in the course of the conversation he told me he had been told the same thing. Though we're probably distant cousins. My paternal grandparents were both named Smith and I figure I'm probably related to just about every Smith in the Chicago area...)

ATTN: Mary De Voe:

Earlier, in another post at CMR, I posted the below comment which was a joke referring to the Police/Henry Louis Gates/Beer Summit incident in 2009. I do not believe Obama actually commented on the Adam Smith/Classy Chik-Fil-A employee incident. I noticed you've been sort of referring to this as if it happened and I just wanted to set the record straight.

"I think I just heard that Obama has responded to the video. He said "the young lady acted stupidly", but he is going to host a Peach Shake Summit with the two of them."
