Unclear on the Concept
Noted First Amendment scholar Sarah Palin on the backlash against a reality show star’s anti-gay comments:“Free speech is an endangered species. Those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us.” Got that? Speech that is critical of someone who expresses a socially conservative opinion is not free speech; quite the opposite – it renders free speech an endangered species. Glad we got that straightened out.
