What A Hypocrite!

AL FRANKEN KNOCKS DOWN DEAN HECKLER

Franken said he’s not backing Dean but merely wanted to protect the right of people to speak freely. “I would have done it if he was a Dean supporter at a Kerry rally,” he said.

Normally, this would have been a Sideblog link, but that quote above pushed my buttons a little. So Al, while you support the right of people to speak freely, you silenced someone with an opposing viewpoint to yourself…completely opposite of what you said above. Freedom of speech isn’t just my freedom to say what I want, but it’s the freedom to say what you want as well. To have Freedom of speech, you have to accept that others have different opinions.
