Bull. Just because I CAN say something, doesn't mean I SHOULD.
And whose decision is it what you can say, there in lies the rub.
Is it the angry mob outside, or is the rule of law, Here in the US its the rule of law.
Not the vocal minority who seek through violence to oppress, but you go ahead and bow to anger and violence of the mob.
I for one will not.
I get what you're saying, it's the principles of what WE believe in as Americans, and what THIS country was founded on. It's not about the
decision of what you can or can't say, or who gets to "decide" that. Patriotism at it's core, and i admire you defending that.
But the world doesn't have any obligation to adhere to or honor our ego-centrism and liberties as Americans -- and certainly, they don't.
The issue here is humility, and not using one's social reach (via the media) to instigate further violence.
In FACT, in this instance, if you say certain things to this particular group of people, OTHER people will likely get killed.
You want that on your conscious?
It's like my mother used to tell me, "it's not What you say, but how you say it... and sometimes it better not to say anything at all"
