Don’t Deport Piers Morgan

Deport Piers Morgan? NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While he is anti-gun and his treatment of Larry Pratt was deplorable, these are not crimes. The same Bill of Rights that protects him, protects you and me as well. The Bill of Rights protects unpopular words, unpopular deeds and unpopular people. And if Piers Morgan can be punished for speech that you don’t like, why, then, can’t YOU be punished simply because somebody, somewhere doesn’t like something that YOU might say or do someday?

You reap what you sow. Freedom is a 2-way street.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at www.thefot.us And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.

    Well said and exactly right, Doug!
    Mind you, there’s nothing to prevent us from boycotting his telly show and its sponsors — AND informing the sponsors why we are doing so.
