Typical Liberal Open-mindeness...

Why is it that when any kind of controversy arises in the realm of free speech it seems to be invariably a liberal excoriating the ideas or values of a conservative?

Two examples in brief: When Ohio Police officer Rob Breyley parked his privately owned vehicle at the police station he was ordered by his Chief to remove his anti-Kerry sign on his privately owned vehicle. The Chief muttered some drivel about signs on city property. Maybe not a colossal controversy except for the fact that in the same parking lot, in clear view of the Chief and everyone else were other vehicles, with pro-Kerry signs on them and of course you might guess that none of them were ordered to remove theirs. Sigh!

And when schoolteacher Shiba Pillai-Diaz was approached by her assistant principal to remove her picture of the President and his wife from her classroom bulletin board she refused. The board was an American history display, which contained numerous artifacts like the Declaration of independence, and other documents by the founding fathers.

The teacher says she has never mentioned her political affiliation in school although further research into this story casts some doubt on her innocence. But what is disturbing-- though predictable-- is one of the statements made by the superintendent of schools where Ms. Pillai-Diaz served.
He said, “Ms. Pillai-Diaz was directed to remove bulletin board materials because they were being viewed as contributing to an ongoing disruption of the teaching-learning environment.”

Note he did not say they were disruptive; merely that they were being viewed as disruptive. It’s the game of the thought police that if we think something is so; it is! Objective reality is irrelevant.

Still it is beyond cavil that these sorts of disputes are almost always waged by the self-proclaimed, most open-minded and tolerant of our culture whereas we are always lead to believe it is the confounding conservatives who want to censor everyone who doesn’t believe what they believe.

“Loyalty and truth preserve the king, and he upholds his throne by righteousness.” wrote Solomon.” Proverbs 20:28 On Nov. 2nd we shall see!

I think America is starting to get it!

You sir represent what the dark ages were all about: typical ultra conservative close mindedness.
