The political correctness that the Left-liberal inquisition has imposed on society and culture is taking its toll on free speech. The latest victim is writer Craig Gore, whom ‘Law & Order’ creator Dick Wolf has fired over a tweet that the former made against the Black Lives Matter movement. Activists of this movement are on a rampage—looting, burning, and killing all across America.
They claim to be protesting against the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old man who died last week after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, held him down with a knee on his neck though he repeatedly pleaded, "I can't breathe", and "please, I can't breathe."
Chauvin was arrested and charged with three-degree murder and manslaughter. Three fellow officers have been sacked.
The protest itself is pointless because the alleged culprit is facing trial, but people have a right to protest in a democracy. But nobody has a right to thrash and rob others.
It was against this violence Gore posted a series of controversial posts on Facebook condemning looters, and he shared an image in which he is holding a gun as a threat to those who disobey the city's curfew.
In images posted on social media, Gore is seen holding a gun and wrote "curfew". In another comment, Gore, whose credits also include "S.W.A.T." and "Chicago P.D.", threatened to "light motherf**kers up who are trying to f**k with my property".
Wolf shared the news through a statement posted on his company's official Twitter page," reports etonline.com.
"I will not tolerate this conduct, especially during our hour of national grief. I am terminating Craig Gore immediately," Wolf said.
