Free Speech Rights Out – Censorship In

Posted by madjillmom on September 14, 2012

We offend Islamic Extremists. So the Obama Administration outs the movie maker and then goes to Youtube and tries to get the movie pulled because it offends Muslims. This action should offend everyone who loves American and the Constitution. Evidently, the White House and the “Constitutional Law Professor” think that this part of the Constitution isn’t really good enough for the bind Obama finds himself in. Let’s suspend the 1st Amendment, at least for the rest of the campaign. Aren’t all of Obama’s issues somehow related to the election and not for the betterment of America.

“I disagree with what you say, but I defend to the Ambassador’s Death your right to say it, but not when I am in a close election.” Pres. Barack Obama.

Freedom of Speech is not bound by freedom from offense. I was offended by everything that Occupy Wall Street did, but they had the right to express themselves. It offends me when someone who is an American burns the flag, but it is protected by our Constitution. Every movie made in the last few years featuring Will Ferrell offends me. So what.

If I try to censor something, it isn’t a big deal. ¬†Government censorship is a big deal.
