Radical Islamists are not the only people offended by words! As a Christian, I am OFFENDED by being called an INFIDEL, as one of the 53% that pays taxes I am OFFENDED that my hard earned money is being sent overseas to countries being run by our enemies while backs are turned to our only true ally in the region,as a woman I am OFEENDED that my Middle Eastern sisters are not able to vote, drive and are treated like chattel, as the wife of a veteran I am OFFENDED by radical Islamists burning our FLAG and KILLING our Ambassador and State Department employees. Yet, we who believe in Freedom of Speech are not storming their Embassies,Consulates, and murdering their representatives. Why you may ask ? It is because WE ARE AMERICANS and we believe in The Constitution and Bill of Rights that was inspired by Divine Providence, so, therefore we ALLOW them to call us names and DEFILE our flag because we recognize that is an expression of their Freedom of Speech !
However, the burning of the effigies of the current head of this Administration does NOT OFFEND me, as the touchy-feely Mid East foreign policy with these radicals is why we are in the current fiasco. They look at at us now as weak and impotent not the leader we once were and feel certain that an Executive Order will be passed to stifle American's freedom of speech because it is the politically correct thing to do.
