The Company You Keep

Here's all I have to say about the racist, homophobic asshat from Duck Dynasty, Phil Robertson, and the ensuing crapstorm he unleashed.

If the people defending you are conservative Republicans, who will defend any expression of hatred, while simultaneously showing no understanding of the First Amendment, you've already lost. Sarah Palin was an immediate and passionate defender of the guy, and a week later she admitted she hadn't even heard or read what he had said.

That tells you all you need to know.

I continue to be a fan of the First Amendment in cases like this, because it allows asshats and douchenozzles to self-identify.

It really bugs me how little some people understand what the First Amendment really is.
