“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it,”
– modified slightly, and attributed to either Patrick Henry or Voltaire –
Happy Monday, everybody! To say the Republicans have made a controversial pick as their choice this time for President might be viewed as some as an underestimation: the man has been a virtual bull in a proverbial china shop, insulting and infuriating dozens of voting blocs. Clearly, his campaign is faltering, so much so that rumors of an unprecedented Republican establishment intervention have begun to spring up. The man just says whatever he damn well pleases without regard for any consequences whatsoever. His rants and raves offend a great many, but, as master podcaster Burr Deming points out here, like it or not, Trump does have the right to speak as he chooses, and that right is guardnteed in our Constitution. And, of course, each of us has the very same right to respond in kind, as well as to vote AGAINST him and his party on election day…
In Burr’s own words, “The father of a fallen soldier asks whether Donald Trump has even read the Constitution.
Mr. Trump attacks. The man has no right to ask such a question.
Actually, the Constitution guarantees that right.
It also gives Mr. Trump the right to attack two grieving parents.
And it gives the rest of us the right to call Mr. Trump what he is showing himself to be.
He should read about those rights.”
