    VDARE.com: 01/31/09 - Saturday Forum: The Oregonian’s Betsy Hammond Tries To Get A VDARE.COM Reader Fired For Challenging Her Enthusiasm For “Diversity”

    Tried to get reader who criticized her story fired from his job.

    Oregonian reporter Hammond's letter to Garland’s employer:

    “I am a newspaper reporter in Portland, Oregon, and I received an email today from an employee of your firm.

    “I would be surprised if a business such as yours could thrive in DeKalb County if the corporate image you project is that your employees wish they could flee to, quoting him, a ‘GREAT WHITE’ area to avoid diversity.

    “Is this how you like your firm represented to the media?”

    The same kind that wants to tell you what you can or cannot do in your own home.

    I'm having a hard time following the story but I think it wouldn't be ethical of a reporter to try to have someone fired for expressing their opinion.

    But the guy is lucky his company agrees with his opinions.

    Catch 22's are not hypocrisy, it's the same logic used by anti-abortionists, anti-smokers, anti-well-everything.
