So I made it a point to completely understand what I could and could not do. I could say my job and position if it was a situation that required it, such as giving a bio about yourself when running for office in the AL, of course voters are going to want to know what you do for a living. What I could not do was in any way attempt to influence either entity with my position with the other. I could say or do anything I want to, but not at work and not in the name of my position with the fed or the AL. If I hated Trump, I said so at an American Legion meeting about what politicians to back in the coming state election, and someone at that meeting knew my job and position and publicized I hated Trump, it would still be none, in fact I am protected from, my boss even taking any personnel actions against because of my personal opinions. I figured you would somehow be an expert on this.
Perhaps it's different in the 'public employment' world.... our company has a very clear and concise policy on the use of social media, and any relationship to the employer. A T-shirt with the company logo, a hat, a sweatshirt, the company store in the background, all connect the employee to the employer. At that point, regardless of on or off hours, the employee is representing the company. We make this very clear.

It doesn't matter if they are left right or somewhere in between, political comments, racist comments, derogatory comments about the employer or product may lead to termination.

What applies to one company, may not apply to another. It all depends on what their policy is on the subject.

My user name here and other places, is unknown to my employer, and I don't believe I have ever named my employer or the stores they own, so I am not in violation of our social media policy. Heck, there is only a handful of people on here that even know my first name.
Your life is the sum total of the choices you make.
If you don't laugh at yourself, a whole bunch of people will volunteer to do it for you

Again you divert and deflect by a straw man interjection.

I never suggested anything of the kind. And your comment suggests that you would accept the application of our nation's laws to be filtered through a partisan lens.

I would submit that concept is not only antithetical to our founding,,,; it is quite dangerous and therefore wrong.
