    small business and one of my employees is out there spewing all kinds of bigotry?  I do want the right to fire him.  His hate speech reflects on my business, particularly if he's a public face of my business (a waiter, receptionist, etc).  Why should I be forced to lose business based on customers boycotting me based on this fool's hate speech?

    I recall a few months ago a national pizza chain firing someone because it was found out that one of their delivery guys trashed an African American customer he had just delivered pizza too, spouting all sorts of racist crap.  People called for him to be fired, and he was.  Rightly so.

    As for Duck Dynasty, I couldn't care less about it.  I never even heard of it until Rachel started going on and on about it in recent weeks, about how great it is, about how it's the most watched cable show or most watched reality show or whatever.  I don't care.  Didn't care about Jersey Shore when it was big either.
