Stripped for Freedom of Speech
I was reading the Chicago-commuter-free newspaper Redeye, AKA trash media source, on my way to work today. There was a column discussing the recent drama surrounding Miss California. I was surprised to see there wasn't even a second opinion! They just pretend they had. Both of the columnists despised Miss California. One stated she is an example of intolerance. Wait a minute! When did freedom of speech become "intolerance"? She was not afraid to say what she believes, good for her! There are a lot people don't eat pork in this country, should we also stop eating pork because we need to "tolerate" others' belief? This whole argument is so ridiculous. When it comes to one's preference, some people don't care about the basic rights of others. Selfish and stupid.
