RE: THE U.S. AS IT SHOULD BE
I'm not taking sides but curious of other's thoughts:
Where's the line between not being able to spout racial opinions and freedom of speech?
Remember - I'm not saying I agree with him but he did not say anything about harming Muslims, just deporting them. What if he said that about Mexicans? Irish? Iranians? Would it have raised the same level of responses? "All Irish need to be deported" for example.
Again, I'm not saying I agree with him and I'm sure most don't, but does he have the right to say this under the 1st Amendment? The same 1st Amendment two of my kids are overseas fighting for?
Whether you agree with him or not, ideally it shouldn't matter. He's afforded the same rights as long as he doesn't cross into the hate-crime laws, which as far as I know (which isn't much) he hasn't. Can the same be said for some of the responses made afterward?
Just food for thought and comment...
