Luis Moreno Jr., 42, had served with his uncle Jaime Moreno as the play-by-play radio announcer since 2010.

The pair were known internationally for their energetic calls of exciting plays by Panthers players.

After researching American politics online, he “found out that there are a lot of things that are happening that I wasn’t aware of that make me support [Trump],” he told the Observer.

Moreno tweeted a post in support of Trump from his private Twitter page in April.

This prompted Eric Fiddleman, who manages radio and television for the Panthers, to contact him and request that he remove references to the Panthers from his account.

Nothing to apologize for. I don't necessarily agree but I'm among those vets who will not support Trump and I'm also not voting Dem. For as little as it will do (at the very least she hits the 5% mark to get funding for future Libertarian campaigning) I will be voting for Jorgensen.

Whoever decided to do the firing needs to have something unwanted and unpleasant happen to them.

QAnon cultists on Chiefs Planet wake up surprised that organizations don't want cult members anywhere near their organization.

I don't want libtard AOC/Bernie/New Grean Deal sycophants near me, most especially at work. But that doesn't mean I think they should be fired for thinking their wacko thoughts. if they can do the job required of them then even if they believe Biden is their Lord and Savior, they should be allowed to keep their jobs. Even if I don't like their politics personally. That's the difference between being a moderate conservative and a wack-job Leftist.

You are laboring under the idea that anyone cares about you or notices you and your job.

We are talking about people that others actually give a shit about.

Trump is the only choice. Biden and Harris will destroy the job market and the economy.

If something seems outrageous to you and you're questioning how something like it can pass, try reading the actual article or looking for another source.

Folks are being manipulated like crazy on the internet. It happens on both sides.

He wasn't fired. And they did not decide against offering him a new contract because of his thoughts. They did it because they asked if he would comply with their social media policy and he said no.

It's completely acceptable for a private business to not want public figures doing things that will hurt their image or turn half their market, or more, against them. There's nothing wrong with a media company saying that their employees need to stay out of politics, or they will find someone who will.

Interestingly, a lot of people seem to think athletes should stay out of spreading political propaganda and stick to sports, but that does not seem to apply to this guy.

Because many people have been conditioned to accept information from pet sources like Liberty Headlines USA (in the OP) uncritically, and don't even bother to verify their side of the story before reposting it and spreading it to dozens more people.

Nobody has been fired for thinking anything.
