    So the tactic has been used against liberals. If the complaint is legit, then the tactic should be used against liberals, and anyone else who deserves firing. I mean, the tactic of marching with signs outside a business to intimidate people out of entering is used against liberals, as is every tactic that's ever worked for liberals. That doesn't discredit the tactic.

    If someone should not have a position of power because they're abusing it or they got it by abusing power previously, then it's perfectly legitimate to work to get them out of that position. Just because some people have abused the tactic to force  firing of people who didn't deserve firing doesn't make the legitimate cases illegitimate.

    You want to fight the illegit instances, you go out there and support their targets by defending them from the charges, and countercharging that the illegit cases are just blackmail, with no reason but intimidation. You don't give up a useful, legitimate weapon just because someone else has abused it. Because then you're surrendering an entire method of accessing power.

    It's the reasons why to fire someone that distinguish the two kinds of cases. Focus on that.
