Progressive Tolerance: Simon & Schuster Employees Demand Company Cut Ties With Trump Admin Authors

Remember who Liberals would tell us that they are uber-tolerant? That we must respect all points of view? That all voices are valued? That we should listen to different voices? Well, yeah, of course that was a smoke screen for their Progressive (nice Fascism) beliefs

216 employees demand Simon & Schuster cut ties with Trump administration authors

216 Simon & Schuster employees and over 3,500 outside supporters submitted a petition on Monday to senior executives asking the company to stop publishing books from figures linked to the Trump administration, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Driving the news: The petition demands the company sever ties with former Vice President Mike Pence, who signed a two-book deal ahead of a possible 2024 presidential campaign.

The 216 employees represent roughly 14% of the company’s workforce. Prominent Black writers, including award-winning author Jesmyn Ward, were among the outside supporters.

What they’re saying: “When S&S chose to sign Mike Pence, we broke the public’s trust in our editorial process, and blatantly contradicted previous public claims in support of Black and other lives made vulnerable by structural oppression,” the petition says, according to the Journal.

So, Wrongthink at a company who’s entire point of existence is to publish books, especially ones that will make money. They publish books with different views, fiction and non-fiction. That’s what a book publisher does. If the employees aren’t down with this, they can find other jobs. Instead, they want to force their narrow, Fascist views on everyone.

I read a lot of books. Mostly fiction. Love some zombies, horror, and science fiction. And I’ll see books that I have no interest in, that I think are on subjects I don’t like, yet, I don’t call for them to be banned. Not published. Liberals do want them banned.

    Remember when Trump wanted to cancel CocaCola? But wanted to continue drinking diet coke himself and continue selling it at his properties? Tolerance !!

  2. Hairy says:

    Teach as the minority party now if you ate expecting tolerance maybe you should be perhaps calling them less impolite names

    • Jl says:

      And when did they ever stop calling Trump names when he was President? John wins the award for lack of self-awareness..

  3. alanstorm says:

    S&S should fire 216 employees. Maybe then they’d realize that they’re not in high school anymore.

    • Dana says:

      Not fire them as much as send them a memo, we will publish those who have good book proposals, and you will like it. If you don’t like it, well, McDonald’s is always hiring.

    Progressive tolerance: a total contradiction in terms.
