I’d get the evidence first, if true, then I’d fire him as I wouldn’t support anyone I knew who harbored racist thoughts.

You come right out with the insults and cry when someone insults you back. Very big and brave of you.
Stop being a scared child, grow up, learn to tolerate an opinion that is different from yours.
It's very clear IMO that whenever these right-wing extremist types talk about free speech, they're really talking about freedom from the potential consequences of their speech.
They insult people, then act the injured party when someone insults them back.
They spout racist shit on social media, with their workplace openly displayed in their profile, and then can't believe how that might cause co-workers and customers to believe they might get disparate and unfair treatment in the workplace. Or that their employer might not appreciate the negative publicity from that.
Reminds me of something I read a while back about an EMT (or similar) who posted on FB that they wouldn't treat black people. They literally told the whole world they wouldn't do the job that the taxpayers (which includes black people) were paying them to do, but it was "PC" and "woke" that got them fired..

You could probably create browser plugin to filter out or to identify nonsense about to be spewed.

Did poster use the following terms?
"New World Order"
"Watch this video and tell me what you think"
"The left"
"inner city"
"Big City"

Those are some common ones off the top of my head.
There are some new ones floating around as well but not sure of the common spelling patterns used..
Virtue Signalling

Could have some sort of weighted\ranked system.

I honestly can't remember all the common terms at the moment due to usage of the ignore functionality of the forum.
"I didn't vote for Turmp, I don't even like him, but he's saying things that make sense to me." (Remember when right wingers tried that ploy? All the more hilarious as well, with Turmp's stroked out dementia stream of consciousness.)

Have you considered that the disappointment might be of your own doing? I mean, it's kinda silly to act like an asshole and then feign surprise and hurt when you get treated like an asshole. Just sayin. You sound like one of those types who thinks free speech means freedom from criticism and disagreement.

But anyway, I would never write up any one of my reports for something where there was no proof or evidence except for an anonymous email. I would investigate the matter thoroughly and independently, and perhaps maybe even ask the employee why someone might make such an accusation, but would take no action without proof (or confession) of some kind. Taking corrective action against an employee without that isn't just bad management, it's setting yourself up for trouble with that employee, should the accusation prove to be false.

Based on your attitude displayed here, and your proposed 'solution,' I strongly suspect your story is BS. Propaganda intended to silence 'woke' speech you disagree with by casting it in an unlikely negative light.
I don't know. I have a hunch it might be partially true, but more is that the employee was him.
