“Actually, no. The First Amendment does not entitle you to an opinion. It guarantees you freedom from from governmental prosecution or punitive actions for the expression of your political view or opinion.

It DOES NOT guarantee you freedom from ridicule, shame, derision, or the consequences of your actions, words, or opinions.

It DOES NOT mean that all opinions are valid.

It DOES NOT mean that all opinions are equal.”

“Don't statements like the one this terribly misguided woman makes automatically disqualify her from serving in any public governmental capacity.

Seriously? When will we as a society say to these people "ENOUGH!" and tell them that their backward views will not be tolerated in modern society.”

Telling Transgender people of the area they have to be castrated?

“Survey says....

XXXXXXXX!!!!

What kind of backwards logic and reasoning do you espouse?

This was not the cast's reaction to criticism. It was the cast's reaction to intolerance.
And if that is a "slap in the face" to bigotry and prejudice, then it is something to be applauded and encouraged.

Tolerance does not mean accepting bigotry.
Tolerance does not mean that close-mindedness is something to be agreed with.
It is not possible to be tolerant with intolerance.”

“Been an Auburn fan since birth -- grew up in Auburn, father taught at AU. Saw the famous 17-16 win over Alabama in 1972. Saw the National Championship in 2010.

That was one of the craziest, luckiest, HOLY $H|† plays I've ever seen.

Georgia should have won, but I'm damn glad they didn't.”

“They want their clothes to hang in a straight line, to drape from a sharp, thin shoulder, a coat that flairs just a bit, completely uninterrupted by the body beneath except exactly where it's wanted. It's about geometry, perfection, and not about flesh escaping from constraints, pushing against the fabric, showing a live body beneath.”

“Sure, let's make a list of people who we should keep track of by the use of "criminal" registries

1. Parent's who allow their daughters to participate in child "beauty pageants"
2. Parents who dress their children up in KKK garb for Halloween
3. People who pass out graphic anti-abortion literature at Halloween
4. People who "fat-shame" children at Halloween
5. People who don't follow proper safety procedures at their workplaces.
6. LGBTQ individuals
7. Adulterers
8. People who cheat on their taxes

Oh hell, why don't we just register everyone who does things we don't like or approve of.

KKK, NAACP Leaders In Wyoming Have Historic Meeting

KKK, NAACP Leaders In Wyoming Have Historic Meeting

Commented Sep 3, 2013 at 10:04:38 in Politics

“This meeting makes no sense, although on a basic level I applaud the effort. Moreover, the KKK reps rhetoric (as reported) shows just how pointless it is.

And the posters writing that "these 2 groups are the same" couldn't be more wrong, if not disingenuously so.

Except for the fact that they both promote their respective races, these groups are nothing alike. I know of no evidence that the NAACP has ever engaged in the lynching of white people (metaphorically or otherwise.)

There has never been a march by the NAACP to promote the exclusion of any group be they gay, Jewish, Catholic, or for that matter, Caucasian.

The KKK is replete with a history of such abhorrent behavior. They are soaked with the blood and death of thousands of African-Americans, Jews, gays, and others whom they deemed lesser or undesirable.

While there are legitimate aspects of the NAACP to dislike, they are not the evil, terrorist organization that the KKK has a history of being.”

“4. Because Barack Obama is mixed race, because our country has a long, sad, and embarrassing history of portraying blacks as less intelligent )"clowns" if you will), because the announcer specifically referred to it as such, and because the fellow who posted his offense at it even says "If an old country boy picks up on something like that, imagine what a person of color would think." -- THAT'S what makes it racist. If you don't see that or refuse to acknowledge it, then you are on the wrong side of history and what our founding fathers were speaking of when they wrote "all men are created equal."

Someone mentioned the TV show "That's My Bush" where in one episode, the "cleanliness of the First Lady's genitalia" was questioned, and in the confusion... The President employed the help of an Assisted Suicide doctor.

Yes. It's offensive. But, "That's My Bush" was a TV series that (with the exception of a cable bill), no one was paying money to attend or view. And being on Comedy Central, "That's My Bush" probably came with a disclaimer at the beginning warning of its propensity for offending viewers the way many of their programs do. "South Park" and their various "Celebrity Roasts" come to mind. Point being, it's supposed to be offensive and aimed at an adult audience. It's not a family event. The rodeo was a paid admission event and funded by public monies by the state of Missouri.”

“1. You can call this "freedom of speech" all you want. But the bottom line is that this was a state sponsored event that used state funds. That's what makes it wrong.

2. Many readers are responding that the same thing has been done to previous presidents. This is not entirely true. While a G.W. Bush mask was used in a "Game of Thrones" episode as a head on a spike, it was done with little or no attention drawn to this fact by the show itself. It also wasn't done before a captive audience nor was it "promoted" by the announcers as something to be desired and cheered on by the spectators. If you're going to claim that "both sides do it", please give us specific examples.

3. It probably wasn't intended as racist, so much as it was intended to be derogatory toward the president. While the first amendment does give everyone the right to speak their mind, it only prohibits the government from acting against those speech acts. It doesn't mean that it can't be called out as offensive, labeled as inappropriate, disgusting, juvenile, immature, and reprehensible. It also does not prohibit individuals from taking action against it by reporting it and condemning it in any legal way possible. So please stop screaming "first amendment rights" when some says "Gee, what you did was really repugnant and you ought to be ashamed of yourself and everyone else involved who did it."”
