Talk Show Host Calls Out Costco for Infringement of Free Speech

Television talk show host, Rick Amato put out a call to action against mega warehouse superstore, Costco on Tuesday night. The host of The Rick Amato Show  on One America News urged viewers to call Costco’s Head of Investor Relations, CFO and Executive Vice President, Richard Galanti; and demand the company change their policy of being able to fire employees who engage in political activities outside the workplace.

Justin Danhof of National Center for Public Policy Research has been working on implementing the Employee Conscience Protection Project . The project would protect workers from discipline or termination as a result of political and civic pursuits outside of work. When the National Center for Public Policy Research confronted Visa, the company did not hesitate in implementing it.

Costco, who has been under the direction of prominent liberals refused and is still refusing to put the policy in place. Co-Founder and Former CEO of Costco, Jim Sinegal endorsed President Obama in 2012 for a second term. Something, which could get a Costco employee fired.

Costco, is no stranger to controversy. In 2014 the company pulled NY Times Bestseller Dinesh D’Souza’s book, America: Imagine A World Without Her from their shelves. A book, which was critical of President Obama. Later replacing it after public outcry. In 2013, Costco labeled a Bible as fiction. All seemingly politically motivated acts, which you would think, would get corporate in its entirety canned.

As Rick Amato succinctly points out, if Costco fired a gay employee there would be outrage as there should be. How is it different then to fire someone for his or her political speech or beliefs?
