Free speech for us, not for you

First there was the Whoopi Goldberg’s vulgar show for John Kerry. When she got fired by Slim Fast who didn’t want to be associated with her crude antics, she complained her rights of free speech were violated.

Then there was Linda Ronstadt. She got kicked out of the Aladdin Hotel after making political statements about Moore and his movie during her performance. Now Michael Moore has written an open letter (I guess it’s his way of saving the 37 cents on postage) to the Aladdin Hotel claiming Ronstadt’s rights were violated.

Moore believes that Ronstadt’s comments are free speech people who disagree with those views are required to be associated with them. It doesn’t work the other way around. Liberal activist groups NEA and NOW demanded that Rush Limbaugh be fired from promoting Florida orange juice.

Now we find out that Ronstadt is a bigot. Here is what she said in an interview before the Aladdin show:

It’s a real conflict for me when I go to a concert and find out somebody in the audience is a Republican or fundamental Christian. It can cloud my enjoyment. I’d rather not know.”

If you are a Republican or (horrors!) a Christian, she doesn’t want to perform for you. Lefties want to you to accept and even support their views no matter how offensive you believe they are. Criticism is not allowed.

Remember, there are none so intolerant as the tolerant.
