Kenneth Gladney

I can't find the exact link, but maybe someone can e-mail it to me.

O'Reilly had some pompous windbag on his show yesterday, discussing the NAACP generally and the Kenneth Gladney beating specifically.

The pompous windbag, who I will call Windbag for short, said Gladney was selling hate literature, specifically buttons with Obama's picture in whiteface, and the word "Dope" rather than "Hope,"  implying that Gladney deserved the beating given him by SEIU thugs, a beating which sent him to the hospital.

O'Reilly more or less agreed that the buttons Gladney was selling were improper.

It leads me to despair to hear O'Reilly agree with Mr Windbag that Gladney should not be exercising his First Amendment right to free speech.  Where are the first principles our republic is based on?  Have we forgotten free speech so quickly?

Founding Fathers to O'Reilly:  Free speech is protected by the First Amendment.  You blew it,. 

A link to the interview.

For some reason, that reminded me of our friend Mel the Controlling Wife-beater and his defenders: the slut made him do it!
