May 11, 2015  By Jack Jodell (in association with BURR DEMING of FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column). 

Happy start of another week, everyone! Today, our master podcaster Burr Deming starts our week off with a reminder of how important it is for us to respect free speech – even when it originates from those as odious and reprehensible as Rush Limbaugh and Pamela Geller. We don’t have to agree with these horrible types, but we MUST allow them their freedom of expression, no natter how hateful or disgusting it may be.  

BURR!In his own words, Burr tells us, Satire can be a mighty weapon when humor is used to puncture the pretensions of the privileged, the wrongdoing of the elite.   

When it directed at the downtrodden, those who struggle to overcome obstacles, satire mutates to something less noble. It becomes simple meanness, petty and cruel.   

Free speech includes freedom of malevolence. We can and we must defend the rights of those who bully and hate.    

That full and vigorous defense does not obligate us to join them in their hatred.”

About jackjodell53

I am an American Dissident trapped in a country where poor and middle class people are constantly being exploited and lied to by a very rigid and conservative plutocratic elite. I believe in government OF, FOR, and BY the people, not one controlled as it now is by corporations and special interests.
