Kathy Griffin. “Comedian.” She claimed this while holding up the decapitated head of the president of the United States as “comedy.” She’s just as funny as Amy Schumer.
Let’s be real. The killing of a president, any president, is not funny. It does not matter if the president is a liberal democrat or a conservative republican, in the United States of America, we do not kill presidents. This is a precedent stemming from the founding of this country- no matter how much that person “offended” or “hurt your feelings,” murder is illegal.
No matter how unfunny Kathy Griffin is, she is still a public figure. Her holding up of the decapitated head of the President of the United States is inciting violence. This act does not fall under the constitutional protections of freedom of speech because her speech is dangerous. If the confederate flag should be taken down, Griffin should be indicted, because by Liberal logic, the confederate flag “incites violence” and is “racist and dangerous.” If saying the word “retarded” shouldn’t be allowed, Griffin should be indicted. Under Liberal logic, Kathy Griffin should be indicted and charged with inciting violence.
Liberals like to argue Freedom of Speech is conditional- if the speech hurts anything, it should be illegal. Liberals want to ban speech that “hurt feelings,” but are okay when the speech is literally promoting the assassination of the President of the United States. Hypocritical much?
This issue is all or nothing. Neither Liberals nor Conservatives can restrict freedom of speech to what demands them. We either have the freedom of speech or we do not. It is that simple. It is time for this country to decide. What makes certain speech acceptable but other speech not? Why is it not okay to write “all lives matter” but it is okay to hold the decapitated head of the President? Why is flag burning okay but flying the confederate flag not okay? This country needs to take a position. This is a fundamental issue regarding our freedom, our rights, our liberties, and our nation.
