Action, Meet Consequence – a Lesson for Juli Briskman

Some people just don’t understand that their actions have consequences. They don’t understand that freedom comes with repercussions, and that actions have ramifications.

This was a lesson learned in spades by one Juli Briskman, who gained some notoriety by having her flabby ass captured for posterity as she pedaled by the Presidential motorcade on her bike last week, with the universal sign of love and understanding high in the air. The image was captured by the White House photographer, and it went viral with people on social media hailing Briskman as a “she-ro,” using the hashtag #Her2020.

See, after that photo of Juli’s saddlebags and middle finger went viral, her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, decided this wasn’t the kind of image they wanted their employees to project to the world, so they fired her.

And Juli is less than happy about it.

“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,‘” said Briskman. “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”

[…]

Virginia is an employment-at-will state, meaning employers can fire people anytime and for any reason. But Briskman said what’s been particularly infuriating is that a male colleague kept his job after recently posting lewd comments on his Facebook page that featured Akima LLC as his cover photo. She said this colleague was reprimanded for calling someone “a fucking Libtard asshole” on Facebook, but was allowed to delete the post and keep his job.

“How is that any less ‘obscene’ than me flipping off the president?” she asked. “How is that fair?”

Well, lemme ‘splain it to you, Cupcake. You see, your employer is a government contractor, and that was the President of the United States to whom you were flipping the bird. When employers see their employees’ photo showing vast amounts disrespect to the most well known and powerful man in the world, they get a bit nervous, because that’s their business that could be impacted.

Your male co-worker getting into a row with some random, anonymous leftie on Facebook doesn’t even come close to the Internet infamy and media attention your little stunt garnered. And while the comment was rude, and certainly did nothing to foster mature conversation, the “fuck you” flag you flew at the most powerful and well known individual in the world, captured by his professional photographer, and picked up by international news outlets drew the attention of the world.

And your employer rightfully felt the public disrespect you showed to the President reflected badly on them.

Just remember – you live in a nation that protects your right to act like a witless shit gremlin. You didn’t get tossed in PMITA prison for opposing the President like you would in tyrannical holes such as North Korea or South Africa. You got your 15 minutes of fame and admiration from other brainless turds, who lived vicariously through you, as you reveled in the attention and the glory heaped upon you by your fellow leftist lumps.

Your employer, on the other hand, wasn’t thrilled with your public display of sophomoric, unhinged rage – a puerile temper tantrum that was publicized all over the Internet. It was inappropriate and reflected badly on them for hiring someone who can’t even control their infantile rage when in the presence of the President of the United States.

Consequences. Learn them.

But Briskman says it was all apparently worth it, and she’ll be out looking for new jobs either with Planned Parenthood or PETA (apparently murdering innocent creatures is her calling).

My guess is she hasn’t learned a thing.

    Do something that reflects poorly on the company to a random person on the internet, get reprimanded.

    Do something that reflects poorly on the company to a customer, get fired.

    It’s not a difficult distinction to make.

    “Does this act of #resist(-we-much) make my ass look fat?”

  • MEC2 says:

    “witless shit gremlin”

    Yes, that remark pleases me… consider it rhetorically appropriated, if not culturally so.

  • Andrew says:

    I just feel sorry for the bicycle seat.

  • Scottie says:

    Now, about those NFL people. I’m glad the government contractor had some common sense. Now, how about the NFL? They’re going to lose their subsidies for their stadiums. Their sponsors are pulling out. Their stadiums are empty. Their TV ratings are in the toilet. Yet they persist. Perhaps she should give them the benefit of her experience.

    • Marta Hernandez says:

      I happen to be one of those who believe NFL teams shouldn’t get squat in taxpayer dollars. They make witless, entitled players into millionaires at taxpayers’ expense, and then fleece us for tickets and merchandise? They can eat a bag of phalli.

  • gbear says:

    I wonder if she was the libtard her colleague was referencing. That would be sweet irony.

  • Rdm says:

    Witless shit gremlin(WSG) has now been added to my verbal and written repertoire, thank you!

    • Robbie says:

      Marta –
      Thank you so much for my newest, favorit-est expression! As Rdm said above, the BRILLIANT! Witless Shit Gremlin is now an invaluable part of my daily communication. It is also much more socially acceptable than most of my other sayings.

    Her butt’s not that flabby. But I’m 63, so maybe my standards have relaxed somewhat.

  • Edward Lunny says:

    Perhaps one of those whom thought her gesture was appropriate could offer her employment.
    And, I think that her self disclosure of having given the rude gesture was supremely stupid. Actions sometimes have consequences.

  • Some years ago, a brilliant friend of mine, commenting on statist (a.k.a. liberal) economic nostrums that fail and fail and fail but simply never die, offered the opinion that “liberals seem to live in a world without second-order effects.” We were talking about political economy, but it’s begun to seem that his insight applies to liberal behavior generally. In the world of the Left, consequences are for other people.

  • Bandit says:

    What a self absorbed little snowflake – she’s outraged that she got fired

  • Brother Cavil says:

    Look, it’s simple, don’t taunt if you can’t tank the aggro. Certain people seem to think they’re entitled to impunity for their actions. The sooner we disabuse them of this idiotic notion, the better.

  • GWB says:

    I thought she was signaling a right turn. Isn’t that how you do it?

    I probably wouldn’t have fired her (unless there are other factors). But the company had every right to do so.

    Now, if we could just get the electorate to do the same sort of thing with our supposed betters in DC………

  • grayswindir says:

    The other issue, as CK found out, before you raise a lot of heat light and noise you better figure out your worth to the company.

    Given the level of emotional immaturity of her little display one has to wonder about the quality of her work. I read she’d only worked for them 6 months. Perhaps it wasn’t all that good and this became a convenient excuse for something they were already contemplating doing.

  • Stevie Nichts says:

    She should thank her lucky stars if that’s the only real consequence. Under the Obama regime, someone who flipped the bird at The One could have found herself audited by the weaponized IRS.

  • Greg says:

    Everything you said! Beautiful

  • Bill Peschel says:

    Frankly, I’d rather not have people lose their jobs for expressing themselves, unless they’re doing it in the workplace or while wearing the company uniform. But it seems like a lot of liberals want that game to be played, so on their house be it.
