"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
One teenager made offensive comments about a murdered child on Twitter. Another young man wrote on Facebook that British soldiers should “go to hell.” A third posted a picture of a burning paper poppy, symbol of remembrance of war dead.
All were arrested, two convicted, and one jailed — and they’re not the only ones. In Britain, hundreds of people are prosecuted each year for posts, tweets, texts and emails deemed menacing, indecent, offensive or obscene, and the number is growing as our online lives expand.” here
This happened in Great Brittian…. but after reading the article I could just imagine how tweetingly excited these sorts of arrest and prosecutions would provide our so easily offended Democrats. Offended by anything and everything any Conservative has to say, that is. Ed Schultz, Bill Matthews, and the demented crowd at MSNBS can, does and has made the most foul, demeaning insults about conservatives (especially the women) with little if any consequences. Nary a Liberal eyebrow is ever lifted at Liberal rants.
We get lectured to by Hussein O. over “civility” (which we know is directed at Republicans/ Conservatives) while his campaign carries on with vicious, unbelievable lies about his opponents (all of them since he started running for office). He also called patriotic Americans “teabaggers” as he preached his “civility” rant. Yet it’s only Repubs and Cons that are constantly scolded for offensive speech.
Democrats are just itching to make some speech illegal. And seeing that Obama has stepped on and over the Constitution multiple times and seeing that our pathetic Supreme Court acts anything but in a supreme fashion, by allowing our tyrannical leader to force Obamacare on American, we may have no recourse. If Obama decides tomorrow to crack down on free speech (for a certain segement… Conservatives) what’s to stand in his way? Not many of the weak- kneened, wimpy House Republicans. Certainly Justice Roberts can’t be expected to hold up the Law of the land.
Obama bragged about his freedom to be ‘less restrained’ after the election. We’ll have to watch and see how less he’ll be — but nothing is out of the realm of possibilities for this man. His disdain for the Constitution is only out weighted by his hatred for half the country. The Conservative half — and our use of “free speech”.
