Normally I ignore the idiot but I was in the public account of The Common Ills looking for a topic to write on (I often go in there on Fridays -- as does Kat) and I found yet another mailing from Tasini.
In this one he wanted you to know he's standing with his Muslim brothers and sisters who are under attack. I thought, "Oh dear Lord."
He wants to be in Congress and that's the s**t he's giving us?
Jim and C.I. have roughed out a piece for Third over the phone and Jim's asked us not to write about the topic if at all possible. But Jim and C.I. are dealing with the church that was originally going to burn the Koran. And they're noting the reactions from politicians and how shameful they were.
I'd put Tasini in there as well.
Hey, Ass Jonathan, if you're voted into Congress, you take an oath to the Constitution. Are you at all concerned about political speech?
I really can't say more than that because that's what Jim and C.I. have roughed out. They talk about how it's important and how 'hurt feelings' aren't an excuse to kill political speech, how political speech is often disagreeable and unpopular but freedom of speech requires that it to be protected,
Tasani's just another ass. I'm so sick of them. I'm glad C.I. and Ruth tackled the subject this week -- and they did so before Jim put an embargo on the topic. Neither of them supports book burning -- of any book. But they both support political speech and agree it needs to be protected speech. It's a real shame that others don't care. For example, there are many forms of political speech that we value which, under this new policy of 'hurt feelings,' would be under attack.
To bad Tasani wasn't a friend of political speech. Too bad he's so concerned about a religion which, in Congress, really shouldn't be his focus. But the Constitution would be. It's a damn shame he doesn't grasp that. But, as I've already noted, he's always running for office and he's always losing.
