Talk Radio Defends Michael Savage

Here is the official press release.

Apparently they are rallying behind freedom of speech and trying to garner sympathy through mentioning that Michael Savage had a disabled brother.

Two things:

Freedom of Speech is a wonderful thing. I think that it is one of the things that makes our country so great. I also think that it has been misused time and time again to protect the stupid. (And I am allowed to say that.)

Secondly, you would think that having a painful past with a disabled brother would have led to a much more sympathetic viewpoint. (And certainly wouldn't have produced statements like 'what do you mean they can scream but they can't talk...morons'.)

Gimme a break people..

I would have to agree with point #1 whole heartedly. Freedom of Speech has become the 'excuse of the day' for so many idiotic people that either don't think before they speak, or don't give a D*%$! I'm sick of our freedoms being misused to protect the truly stupid people of this nation. And, I'm certainly glad that he is paying such a high price...maybe he'll use that brain that God gave him the next time :)
