Free Speech advocates of the Left

Here are some of Ed Schultz's tacit peeps in action.

SHORELINE - Ken Potts calls himself a patriot. That's what his front yard tells you too.

Metal American flags are staked in the ivy beside the driveway. A red, white, and blue pinwheel spins near the front sidewalk. One flagpole flies the American flag. A second flagpole carries the banner of the Army's 101st Airborne. ...

But he says that in the last year the mailbox has been blown up twice with fireworks. The house has been egged. Paint has been thrown on the house too. The flags have been torn down and ripped up more than once.

And the 101st Airborne flag has had the word "murder" and a swastika written on it with a permanent marker.

"It's really difficult for me to see something like this and not feel sad," Potts told us of the vandalism that started around election day last year. Especially, he says, since the 101st led the charge in World War II to defeat Nazi Germany.

But the biggest insult to this house with a permanent Bush-Cheney placard attached to the second story and a collection of mostly Republican election signs in the side yard, is the spray paint someone left on his vinyl siding this past weekend.

In two-foot tall letters on the side of his house facing Meridian someone painted "Bush Nazis." ...

This former soldier with three tours of Vietnam says he feels like his own freedom of speech is under attack.

"When you have someone or a group of people who want to take that away from you, who probably didn't do a thing to defend them in the first place, it's really sad."

Yes, Mr. Potts. Sad and very revealing.

- Whats even more troubling about this typical vandelism on the part of people who are the first to scream for "their rights", is that at some point people are going to get fed up and start responding in kind... Its enevitable... "see see....you paople are Neocon Nazi's that want to stiffle My right to shout obsenities and slanderous lies (freedom of speech), tresspass and deface your property (freedom of expression), kill My unborn baby, whenever I want too (freeom of choice), gather in groups and defile our military (freedom to assemble), call our Commander and chief the vilest of names and accuse Him ofthe most outreageous lies (freedom to desent)....

- One of the things that all of the Maxist/Communist/Socialist/Anarcists/Liberals/Progressives/Atheists , and every other form of anti-American rabble sects think is they can use our freedoms against us. Fortunately they never realize that its those same freedoms that prevent them from ever gaining any real success in this country.

BBH -- please let's not lump atheists in with the rest of that crew. Michael Newdow's ilk are to "atheists" what Michael Moore's are to "fat people" -- a very loud minority whose public crusade has nothing to do with their chosen association.

I'm an atheist, and about as conservative as they come (with a few exceptions).
