” Freedom of speech is something that is widely celebrated from members of the left. From dressing up like vaginas to prove a point about “women’s rights,” destroying 9/11 memorials, or defecating on the American flag, liberals fully support freedom of speech. That is, until you criticize their lord and savior, Barack Obama.
Liberals are losing their minds after an Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Nebraska included a float of a “presidential library,” which depicted the Obama’s library as an outhouse. The main complaint – you guessed it – was that the float was “racist.” “
Let’s compare and contrast , shall we . The above float along with the rodeo clown who was fired from his job for wearing an Obama mask are the two most “outrageous” and “racist” examples of free speech that have provoked the ire of the tolerant left and unleashed torrents of condemnation from same .
On the other hand for the eight years that Bush was in office he was subjected to an unceasing barrage of hatred and vitriol by the “tolerant” Left that is unprecedented in modern political history , all held up as shining examples of the power of our Constitutional rights to free expression , and not just from private citizens , but even from the establishment media itself …
Of course everyone can remember the Bush = Hitler meme …
And then there were the calls for Bush’s outright assassination , in the name of free speech , mind you …
And what of the accolades heaped on the movie “Death of a President” by the oh so tolerant trendsetters of the progressive movement ?
Can anyone of us imagine the uproar and cries of racism that would resound should a similar theme be explored with BHO as the target ?
These are just a few examples of the hypocrisy on display by our “liberal” fellows and don’t even take into consideration the hatred displayed towards others on the right such as Sarah Palin , John McCain , Michelle Bachmann , Ann Coulter and many others .
However you look at it , a “presidential outhouse” and an Obama rodeo clown are quite tame in comparison to the vile criticisms the proponents of conservatism have been subjected to over the years .
