Clarifying Coulter

I've avoided the Ann Coulter flap thus far because I've been thinking it over. I very often jump on a topic the moment it's hot because I want to get my two cents in along with the rest of the crowd, but this time, I've decided to mull it over longer than usual because there's more than just a slur involved.

I think its funny and sad.Funny because they are only individuals and they can be shut off and out. Sad because they have been pressured into apologizes for free speech. After all it was not long ago that Muslims were on the streets of New York demanding the holocaust of Jews and they were not being demanded to apologize or take sensitivity classes.Furthermore this detracts from the election and issues such as the chipping away of free speech.

BMeister, you make a well argued case. Better than most I've seen.

If we prosecuted 'free speech,'

Ted Kennedy and John Murtha would be doing 10 to 20;
the NY Times would be the new home for a check cashing corporation;
Michael Moore would have been turned over to the Sunnis for final retribution;
And the Dixie, I mean Yankee, Roadkill would be wearing their veils and flaunting it in Afghanistan.

They want to throw Coulter under the bus, but no one minds when Robert KKK Byrd throws around the "N" word. Interesting.

I thought it might have been in bad taste, but it didn't bother me too much.
Interesting that so many conservatives want to throw her under the bus. When she first said it, the crowd cheered.

Here's perspective from Bruce Thornton at Victor Davis Hanson's website.
--excerpt--
"If you want to participate, you have to be able to take it. The only alternative is some sort of control by an elite that always ends up stifling the expression of ideas and serving a narrow political interest exactly what we see today in our universities and media."

Anyone who gets their thong all twisted by something like this, needs to chill out and loosen up their baby-blue track pants and go back to their macrame.
