There is no doubt that the video in question, regardless of its intellectual (de)merits, is protected by the first amendment. Many Americans have died to protect such an ideal and many more will die. It is not America's fault that someone else finds the content offensive enough to start killing folks with indiscretion and the reactions around the world certainly do not warrant exceptions to the constitution. Go down this road and we are on a slippery slope.

To me, anything that weakens the Bill of Rights is worthy of revolution. Back when men were men, this type of douchebaggery op-ed wasn't tolerated.

I'm all for free speech even if it offends me. We cant back off that principle.

(D)ouchebaggery can we please add this to Websters, please ?

-Fully agree, Andy
We need to return to our roots for a lot of the pol-speak in this day and time. I sure miss the good old days
