“Ahhh, there it is. First I didn't need you to explain that. Second, I read just fine. Maybe you should learn to respond to messages in context and not go off in left, excuse me, right field. Hope you can understand that.”

“Which part of: "He has the right to say what he chooses but people do not have to provide a podium for him or pay him" did you not understand?

“Sorry to hear that she felt her only way out was to end her life. Her motivations for doing porn were not explained, but if it was to help pay for college expenses, I'm not surprised. I'm also imagining, in the near future, a spike in amputees as young people will literally give an arm and a leg to afford college.”

“No, I think you are. His rights were not violated in any way, shape or form. He was just held accountable for his words. Which, to get back to my original post, is what those listeners were confusing and distorting.”

“I'm sorry, I can't post names because I was listening to a talk radio show geared towards the right wing. The only name I remember was a person who referred to himself as "Freedom Dude". For the rest, let's just say their names were Robert, George, Bill, etc...

Also, the Constitution guarantees the right to say what you want, worship how you want and print what you want, free from government persecution and restriction. There is no freedom to say what you want to anybody, anytime. Couple that with the fact that most, if not all communities have decency standards; which his did, then he cannot be defended by simply saying his speech was protected. According to the standards of his community, his speech was not acceptable and the community member who heard him use a racial slur, in public, had every right to disagree with said speech and make his fitness to serve in a position that represented their community an issue.”

RED66 on May 22, 2014 at 10:10:21

“Wasn't the Sheriff fired for his words? He has the right to say what he chooses but people do not have to provide a podium for him or pay him.

Isn't what happened to Copeland proper?

Once again, you confuse defending his right to free speech with agreeing with him.”

“They, radical right wingers, will never believe a Democrat saying their party is doomed due to their all out hatred of diversity. Besides, the republican formula to victory has never been to recruit minority participation in their party. It has been to restrict minority participation in the voting process. That's how they feel they will win 2016.”

“Campaigning does not fix the problem. Also, once in office, it became clear that the right wing became as obstructionist as possible and publically vowed to work against him so he could fail at reelection. If he would have lead with VA reform, they would have killed it.”

“That's a very simple response to what was being said on talk radio and in other social media outlets. Many have portrayed him as a hero and to date, of the prominent members of the right wing, only Romney has condemned him. Also, there are limits on individual free speech. You can't say anything and everything out in public, especially racial slurs, and expect everyone will agree with you.”

RED66 on May 22, 2014 at 06:58:02

“It was the only response required. Many have portrayed him as a hero?

Post names.

Believing in free speech does not mean agreeing with offensive speech.”

“The road back to relevancy is a long one, but Romney took a positive giant step by coming out against racism and condemning that clown. There were so many right-wingers who, once again, distorted the meaning of the first amendment to give this guy a pass.”

“Free speech does not mean you can say anything to anyone without fear of any consequences.

“As I have commented many times on here, "our country would be better off if the gun zealots who literally worship firearms and look for any opportunity to use and intimidate others with them, would devote just a fraction of their extremism to preserving voting rights and education". Yes, I own a gun and I'm trained and actually a good shot, but it's not a phallic symbol, to me, as it is for some.”
