MSNBC is covering the 'banning' story!
They are quoting .... .TMP no names given, but ... it's a START!
Unfortunately, they didn't mention the fact that while the event was strictly monitored by Team Sarah, pictures of the President photoshopped to look like Hitler were approved!
This really isn't a joking matter; I wrote about this extensively in a previous post on this blog. It speaks to the very heart of why Freedom of Speech is the cornerstone of freedom. Sarah's actions are an indication that not only does she NOT UNDERSTAND this, but that she feels empowered to ignore it!
This is worth taking a stand!
Why? Because I feel that Sarah ONLY has the power allowed to her by people who don't challenge her. Think of it as a parent who gives in to a toddler's temper tantrums, because it's easier than taking a stand against inappropriate behaviour; it's tacit approval/encouragement.
Sarah once said (about redecorating her office, I think?):
I can do what I like, until the court tells me I can't.
As long as people don't object, Sarah 'does what she wants to until the courts tell her differently' .....
If the few people who COULD take a stand don't ... then they are giving Sarah that power.
This past week, I have sent many emails, posted on as many blogs/comments boards as I could, hoping to make as many people aware of Sarah's commitment to the Constitution and its spirit as possible.
I urge people to take the time to do this. It's important to reach those people who might think Sarah is 'harmless' and highlight this serious aspect of why Sarah is so 'popular'.
Let's not let the 'appearance' of being un-opposed be un-challenged.
