Do I have the right to publish political incorrect cartoons? Not really in my opinion. Not when threats prohibit me from exercising that right.
What if animal-rights activists started killing 12 people everytime a hunter shot a deer. Do you think hunters would still feel they had a right to hunt?
Face it.These are example of rights being eroded away by blackmail.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
Along with that right, comes responsibility.
You can yell "fire" in the crowded theater, but you're responsible for the riot that ensues. You can say that your neighbor is a child molester, but, if that isn't true, your neighbor has the right to sue for defamation. You have the right to incite crazies to violence, but you're responsible for the results.
There are no rights without responsibilities.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
But that's tthe burden of free speech. For it to be a real right, even people like Fred Phelps, and thiss guy, need to be able to exercise it. So it doesn't really matter if you get it
The point is making them look stupid by killing people over it...
