    I'd like to say I'm surprised by his behavior but I'm not. Typical liberal.

    I heard from a lawyer friend in Dallas, who told me the bigot Smith was fired from both Vante and the University he was teaching at today.

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    Looks like the bouncing from Vante is legit. This is a Yahoo link from a site called Marketwire.

    TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire -08/02/12)- The following is a statement from Vante:

    Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.

    The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

    We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.
    The last line cracks me up. Don't worry guys, I don't think the general population has a clue to what the Vante product line is. Although, after what you saw on Wednesday, kudos for being panicked.

    I expect the outraged DUers will now have to find a different cath supplier for their S&M games.
    Seems the LGBTWXYZ community is enamored with them if a google search is any indicator.

    All I know is that after having to use one for a week after prostate surgery, I would rather slam my hand in a car door.

    Man, that is good. That tells me that the reason they fired him is because they are afraid to get what every other liberal douchebag got for running their mouth. I love it Bahahaha.

    Well Vante does make equipment to make catheters, among other things and when it comes to the perpetually outraged on the left, their animosity against those that do tow their line appears to have no boundaries.

    Exec Bullies Chick-Fil-A Worker, Then Promptly Gets Fired For It

    Adam Smith, former CFO and treasurer of medical supplies manufacturer Vante, caused quite a stir today when he put up a video of himself bullying a Chick-fil-A drive-thru employee in Tucson on YouTube.

    Smith berates the worker about her company in the video, which was initially titled ”Reduce $’s to Chick-Fil-A’s Hate Groups.” It has since been taken down (though others have uploaded it too).



    (...)
    Smith has now been fired from his job at Vante.


    Here's the press release from Vante announcing that Smith is "no longer an employee of our company," effective immediately:


    TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante:


    Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.

    We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.

    Roger Vogel, Chairman, President and CEO of Vante, said the decision for Smith to step down was mutual. Vogel said he was “shocked” by the video, which he first discovered when people emailed him a link.


    “We obviously found it very disturbing,” Vogel said. “We respect everybody’s ability to share their opinions in the public square and we have a very diverse workforce with a diverse set of opinions. We expect employees to behave in a professional manner that’s commensurate with their positions, and discuss their opinions in a civil fashion. ... We thought what he did was inappropriate.”


    Vogel said the company has no stance on the gay marriage issue but has always hade a “good relationship” with Chick-fil-A. He said the company will consider contacting the employee Smith ambushed in an attempt to mend fences.


    Reached at Chick-fil-A, the employee declined comment. Smith did not respond to messages left via email or through the University of Arizona. UA spokespeople did not return messages asking whether or not Smith would continue to teach classes, although Smith’s profile was scrubbed from UA’s faculty listings Thursday.


    According to his LinkedIn profile, Smith taught Valuation and Corporate Finance to MBA students last semester.
