Recently, numerous big Republican employers who’ve done incredibly well over the past four years have started to threaten their employees with layoffs if Barack Obama is reelected, because they’d logically give up billions of dollars to spite a black dude. Whether with chain letters, “voter information packets,” or just straight-up office e-mail blasts, conservative employers are all of a sudden super freaked out about the dire consequences of not electing empty shell corporation Mitt Romney.

Why, though? Well, maybe because of how, during a call with the National Federation of Independent Businesses (skip to 26:44), Mittens von Glovenstein asked them to!

Von Glovenstein sez:

I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections. And whether you agree with me or you agree with President Obama, or whatever your political view, I hope, I hope you pass those along to your employees.

So, now that Mitt has encouraged your employer to mercilessly threaten your job should he not get his way, and employers are following his lead, how will this play out after the election is over if Obama wins?

Will we see an Atlas Shrugged-style escape to the barren wastelands of the American West on a high-speed train? Hahaha, no, this isn’t fiction, we don’t have high speed trains anywhere but in libtard enclaves.

Will Mitt Romney pick up his trap shooting gun and lead an armed revolution against America’s socialized workplaces? Well, maybe, if all the guns these dickbags owned weren’t non-functional collector’s pieces.

Or will these guys do what they’ve done the past few decades, and grouse pointlessly on any network that will have them about how government is destroying their business as their latest insanely high earnings ironically scroll by on the ticker below them? Yes, that. Definitely.


It is theoretically possible that we should be worried about billionaires who have spent their entire lives working to earn as much money as humanly possible in the greatest economy the world has ever known stopping that because of a slight tax hike back to ’90s levels. It is just remarkably, terribly unlikely that they would ever do such a horrifically stupid thing. Plus, if they shut down, America’s employees will remain woefully unterrorized by their employer’s insane, irrational demands, and that would be a national tragedy.
