 Not necessarily.
I support this person's right to freedom of speech (while we still have it)... even though the content - imho - is obnoxious and hate-inspired.  One thing that stands out re. the religious "Christian" right - is why are they so freaking obsessed with gays? They quote one arbitrary verse out of Leviticus until purple in the face and frothing at the bit -  even though the original wording suggests that it was 'pedophilia', not homosexuality, that was being referred to....
"Americans had better watch what they are saying". Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary, September 2001.
 What are your thoughts on the MA plan aka RomneyCare? This legislation was based on the individual mandate, and was also drafted  by the same think tank - the Heritage Foundation - that put together ObamaCare - and consequently has many similarities to ObamaCare.  I imagine there must have been a lot of debate about that plan, not just in MA, but all around neighboring states on the East Coast. What was the general reaction amongst conservatives - and liberals for that...
  50 years ago today, John Fitzgerald Kennedy the last genuine president of the United States was assassinated. Despite his flaws, he was doing the people's work, from the people's White House - and that  obviously didn't go down too well in élitist circles - it proved to be a terminal faux pas. There is no more proof that Lee Harvey Oswald murdered Kennedy than whether the tooth fairy, Big Foot or Elvis' alien brother in law from Arcturus did it. Oswald was never...
 There are liberals, and "liberals". It's the "liberals" who support ObamaCare - these are people who will vote democrat because family (etc) tradition dictates it, regardless of whether such a vote is in their interest. ObamaCare is no more liberal than a ménage a trois between Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter. Our allegedly "liberal" president could have promoted a healthcare program along the lines of other industrialized nations, and gotten the necessary...
More "Obama Historic": see link HERE:  *extracted* ...   Very good. (!) So the CEO of the US just admits that "killing people" is one of his skills. OK, if this is true, then he's admitted he's a psychopath, in his own words - but does that come as much of a surprise? For me, not at all. I guess that especially in the modern world, it takes that kind of mentality - a power addict who loves to (ab)use power - to be in a position of world's chief henchman. What other skills...
 If the only way for "lefties" to get news with a slant to the left of Mussolini is via the medium of comedy, then that demonstrates where the corporate media stands, ideologically. As regards the US mainstream media in the US goes, Noam Chomsky (love  him or hate him) said it best - and there is no disputing this: "The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum -...
Obama redefines cancer? No surprises there; redefinition is standard practice amongst rogue politicians. The previous administration were masters of it, covering a huge variety of topics, such as torture, contraception, spying laws, freedom, manufacturing jobs, civil rights, presidential power, carbon dioxide (!), democracy, privacy,  the Endangered Species Act, social service role of nonprofits...  the list goes on and on.   Obama, the ultimate faux liberal, is...
