A&E has censored free speech. You should be just as incensed by that as you are about whatever he said. I'm sure if he had said "Homosexuality is cool in my book." and they had done what they did....all kinds of people would be demanding they be removed from the air.
Actually, A&E, like Liberalism itself, is censoring free thought. He didn't say it on A&E, nor did it have any connection to A&E.
All other stations issue disclaimers "He does not represent the views of this network." In this case though, those thoughts are not allowed by the liberal rulers.
Liberalism and the thought police will see a huge backlash from this.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
