You can’t say that on TV

Rush Limbaugh is in the hot seat for making supposedly racists comments about Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.

Now Presidential candidates Wesley Clark and Howard Dean say that Rush Limbaugh should be fired for “hateful and ignorant speech.” The NAACP says it was “bigoted and ignorant”.

Thankfully the NAACP is not the voice of all “people of color” as they want to believe. Just because the lefties say it was racist doesn’t make it so. Now they want someone fired over what they claim is racist.

Isn’t that a dangerous precedent? That’s a very disturbing thought. Losing your job because someone else decides you made a racist comment.

Actually what I find most alarming is that Presidential candidates are calling for punishment of someone’s speech. Doesn’t that show how much they value our rights? Their stance seems to contradict other statements they have made. Wesley Clark has said he is “concerned about the effect of the war on terrorism on civil liberties” and Howard Dean claims that President Bush has “a reckless disregard for our civil liberties” because of the Patriot Act.

I guess their civil liberties are important but Rush Limbaugh’s aren’t.
