PGA president fired for ‘insensitive’ social media post
Another example of the continued watering down of free speech not in the constitutional cents but because of the personal and professional consequences, has the same effect. Can only 'tweet' approved thoughts. Go off grid, you get shot down.
Thank you, Phil!
I'd have apologized and then change lil' girl to lil' pussy.

According to Poulter, Faldo had lost the respect of Europe’s top players after he described Spaniard Sergio Garcia as “useless” during their Ryder Cup victory over the United States at Gleneagles in Scotland this month.
“It makes me laugh,” Poulter wrote. “Faldo is talking about someone being useless at the 2008 Ryder Cup. That’s the Ryder Cup where he was captain. That’s the Ryder Cup where the Europe team suffered a heavy defeat.
“So who’s useless? Faldo might need to have a little look in the mirror.”
Bishop, who owns a large golf complex in Indiana and had just one month left on his two-year term as PGA president, tweeted to Poulter: “Faldo’s record stands by itself. Six majors and all-time RC (Ryder Cup) points. Yours vs. His? Lil Girl.”
And on Facebook, he said: “Tom Watson (8 majors and a 10-3-1 Ryder Cup record) and Nick Faldo (6 majors and all-time Ryder Cup points leader) get bashed by Ian James Poulter. Really? Sounds like a little school girl squealing during recess. C’MON MAN!”
In response, Poulter said in a statement released to Golf Channel: “Is being called a ‘lil girl’ meant to be derogatory or a put down? That’s pretty shocking and disappointing, especially coming from the leader of the PGA of America.”
Thank you, Phil!
