Yesterday, Sarah Palin motionless that she indispensable some-more attention. Not calm to merely hawk her “War on Christmas” book farce, she chose to carillon in on a story of a day, a Duck Dynasty controversy. While there were people fortifying Phil Robertson, I’d like to consider that a strenuous infancy of people found Phil’s GQ talk to be bigoted, descent and ridiculous. But not Sarah Palin. Palin posted an comparison photo of herself with a Duck Dynasty people and she wrote on her Facebook:
“Free debate is involved species; those ‘intolerants’ hatin’ holding on Duck Dynasty primogenitor for voicing personal opinion take on us all.”
Instead of merely ripping out my hair and banging my conduct opposite a wall, we am going to try to mangle this down for all of a people who determine with Palin on this and so most more.
First of all, zero of us pronounced that Phil Robertson doesn’t have a RIGHT to contend whatever he wants. He can contend whatever he wants. We have a right to contend whatever we wish about it. “Free speech” doesn’t strengthen we from people reacting to your crazy, descent hate-speech. we have a right to contend that Sarah Palin is dumber than a box of inexpensive skunk weaves, and she has a right to conflict to that.
Second of all, a “personal opinion” argument. we consider this evidence competence reason H2O if we came by Phil’s quotes second-hand, if this was a announcement story about how someone pronounced that Phil pronounced something homophobic. But that’s not a case. He’s a open figure (a existence star on a really successful and remunerative show) who gave a direct, on-the-record talk to a vital American publication. This was a open matter done by a open figure, for open dissemination. As Phil pronounced in a talk and in his clarifying statement, he wanted this to turn public. In his mind, he’s swelling his possess hypocritical chronicle of a Gospel.
And my final and final indicate – like it or not, Phil Robertson is not only some steep man in a boonies with zero to lose. He is a commodity, partial of an sovereignty value a lot of money. As a GOP always says, income is speech. The LGBT community, a African-American community, a passive village and many some-more communities have a right to repel their support (money) from advertisers who work with Duck Dynasty, since that’s “speech” too.
