Freedom of Speech is one of our Constitutional Rights unless...

Why in the world would President Obama, General Petraeus and several elected officials expect Americans to sacrifice one of our most important principles, one of our most important rights, to appease the people of the Islamic world? Those are the people who want to strip us of our Right of Free Speech, among many other rights that offend them.

Are they not the last people on the planet we should appease? If our own leaders are asking Americans to forego their Right to Free Speech, have they not themselves become enemies of America?

Asking Americans to relinquish the Right of Free Speech is asking Americans to submit to an authority that demands to stand above our Constitution. For Americans, that is IMPOSSIBLE.

Beginning in the 1960s, American protesters opposed to the Vietnam War burned American flags. Flag-burning created plenty of controversy -- but led to no deaths. Instead, burning the US flag led to a Supreme Court case. The justices decided the Constitution permitted the burning of the US flag.

Burning the US flag sometimes occurs in other nations, most notably Islamic nations. However, no American has ever believed that anti-American speech in other countries should be met with murder or violence here at home. Or anywhere else. As 1,400 years of Islamic history proves, muslims will NEVER accept Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion or any other freedoms and rights granted to Americans by our Constitution and Bill of Rights.


"Free Speech Is A Great Idea, But ..."

03 Apr 2011

Harry Reid's comment that "we'll look into" the despicable Christianism of Terry Jones unnerved me. Butters unnerved me some more:

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Congress might need to explore the need to limit some forms of freedom of speech, in light of Tennessee pastor Terry Jones’ Quran burning, and how such actions result in enabling U.S. enemies.

"I wish we could find a way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we're in a war," Graham told CBS' Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” Sunday.


And there you have a classic example of how warfare abroad can curtail liberties at home. Koran burning is obviously a disgusting act of disrespect and incivility. But that very kind of act is what the First Amendment is designed to protect. And we should also remember that this war has no end, and that therefore the liberties taken away by wartime are permanently taken away.

These people need to get a grasp on the realities of the death cult called islam. These miscreants burn down churches and behead non-muslims on a regular basis. And that seems to be an appropriate execution of fee speech, at least according to despicable people such as Harry Reid.

It's the Congress that needs to be held accountable because they have screwed up this country beyond all recognition.

That Pin-headed Pastor Terry Jones in Florida months ago advised his small congregation of 50 sheep to.."Burn The Koran".

Recently, this self-serving idiotic preacher again made a public display for the Tv cameras, once again, exciting a different group of crazy muslims overseas, that used the opportunity to start riots, killing more followers of this cruel death cult. Yep, keep the pot boiling, that's the ticket!

Reb likes to make guesses about people he knows nothing about, (just like his so-called friend Red Hunter) pretending he knows thing about which he has no clue.

Reb, you’ve lost your sensibilities. In addition, you fail to recognize those who preceded you in the blog-o-sphere in the search for truth who supplied you with proper information. Instead, you go on diatribes like the loop garro kid, one of the biggest fools in creation.

You complain about antisemitism yet your anti-Christianism shine through


Go pray with your friend Mohammed; you’re more like him than you know.

reb,

I'm a supporter of Pastor Terry Jones and his Koran burning. I am a big fan of his plans to put Muhammad on trial next.

It's important to show the idiotic muslims that Free Speech is more important than their feelings of anger and humiliation.

If they want to retaliate, they should burn some US flags and some Bibles. Actually, they've done that, but Americans just shake their heads and walk away.

We're civilized that way. We understand Free Speech and how sometimes it makes us angry, but, how it also keeps us free.

Both General Petraeus and Obama have asked Americans to forego their Constitutional Right of Free Speech to appease muslim murderers who will NEVER, EVER embrace our Constitution or our Bill of Rights.

by asking Americans to give up their right of Free Speech to appease muslims, means Petraeus and Obama are aiding and abetting the advance of Islam. Instead, in response to the muslim rioting over the Koran burning, Obama and Petraeus should announce that we're going to start dropping a lot more bombs on Afghanistan.

Or, we should get out, as it appears we are doing in Libya, after tearing up the place for a couple of weeks. And it looks like Gaddafi is keeping his job, after all. Obama is a failure. A big failure.

Sir No Slappz - I have a legitimate
beef with the florida pastor that advises his sheep to burn the Qur'an. That book contains all of the madness, all of their apostle's
devine instructions on how to kill, mutilate and torment captives, how to enslave their women & kids; how to convert, or kill 'em!

I would advise people not to burn the Qur'an...just read it!

WhyNot..cough up an I.D. so others can follow your inane line of reasoning on PP, instead of offering your dog's name? Give 'em your frenchie address, pinhead.

As to Loopie, he's got your number, and you call him 'a fool'? Hah!
