Freedom of Expression
In my household we often respond to individuals that say and do hateful things.
“I disagree with what are you saying or doing, but I will respect your right do it. And if necessary fight and die for your freedom to do so.”
What is going to happen in Florida is not my idea of a responsible freedom of expression. It may cause serious damage and harm to our service men and women in Islamic countries. But our Armed forced signed up to be put in harms way, they know about the inevitable, when what we consider typical American freedoms may run up against another countries morass.
We may not like it or want it to happen.
Bottom line: He has the freedom to do so, because men and women for the last 200 years have fought for the right of free expression.
