For some strange reason, this does not surprise me. They hate the military more than hate groups.
Thanks for the link. I've rarely seen such a bullshit site.
No wonder cons are so misinformed.
Share it with your friends. I do.
Why would you title this LEFT WING MEDIA GROUPS? Sheesh chanel
the article in the stars and stripes states MEDIA GROUPS and there are CLEARLY RIGHT WING media groups in the list that are trying to safeguard FIRST AMENDMENT rights????
Media groups side with Westboro protestors in court case - News - Stripes
Gee, chanel, I have read up on this and all that seems to be fueling anyone is a desire to preserve the right to freedom of speech and freedom of association. That almost always means defending speech which is repugnant, and none of these groups is defending the message of the Westboro Church. The willingness of lefty organizations to step up and defend the rights of those they find utterly repulsive should be a reason to applaud them, not criticize them.
I think you have better critical thinking skills than this. Did you also think the whole ACLU supported the Nazis when they defended their rights?
Did you read the brief? The issue has ZERO to do with the military, and the brief is replete with admonitions of what Phelps et al. do. It has to do with First Amendment protections, PERIOD, something you folks yammer about 24/7.
The brief also cites every single First Amendment lawsuit based on "repugnant" material and the right to publish it which establish the existing precedent.
Only idiots would side with that group!!! I con;t claim any Christian brotherhood with them at all. I do love the people, and would certainly not mind having a chat with them, but their organization has brainwashed them and they need help.
The media... well, they are a lost cause anyway.
Care - I titled it as such because that's what the article says. It seems like a list of lefties to me.
And Madeline - filing a brief on their behalf goes beyond protecting free speech. This man won his judgment and it was reversed. Read the case. They should have kept their stinkin hate to themselves for once.
BTW - Bill O"Rielly is picking up the legal bills. This is what this is about. Stickin it to Fox.
WRONG as usual chanel...and your 'news' source is either purposely lying or obtuse, like you. IF you read the brief, those media organizations are filing to protect THEMSELVES from lawsuits that could be filed every time they report controversial or incendiary comments or positions made by a 3rd party.
Separate names with a comma.
