    Hank Williams Jr., 1st Amendment Rights?

    I read on here and some other places that people think that Hanks/1st amendment rights were violated or infringed upon in some what.

    DO you think this is true?

    I do not and cannot see how the correlation is made?

    Those are the same idiots that think raising taxes on the wealthy is class warfare while they go to work all day for $10 an hour and then come home to their trailer. (yeah I know it's a terrible run on sentence but I am leaving it!)

    You have the right to say pretty much anything you want. You dont have the right to avoid consequences.

    THis is my thinking too and exactly right. No freedoms were taken away, he can say the exact same thing tomorrow too, and the next day, his freedom of speech is still present.

    Is ESPN the government? If not, then this is obviously not a first amendment issue.

    It's not a legal issue, his rights weren't violated. But the double-standard is staggering. It's impossible to even count the number of people comparing Bush to Hitler. Yet you can't even use Hitler in a comparison to a situation involving Obama without inciting some huge controversy. I can't honestly imagine this happening if it were Bush instead.

    espn is a private entity, they can do whatever the hell they damn well please (not that the rest of us have to be okay with the way they conduct business).
