Dr. Laura Schlessinger incited plenty of anger when she decided to drop the N-word not once, but repeatedly on her radio show. She’s since stepped down from the talk show, telling Larry King that “I want to regain my First Amendment rights. I want to be able to say what is on my mind.”
So basically, if she wants to make racist remarks, she thinks she should be allowed to. So does Sarah Palin. The Mama Grizzly has taken to her Twitter to support Dr. Laura, saying:
“Dr.Laura:don’t retreat…reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence”isn’t American,not fair”
“Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists. And b thankful 4 her voice,America!”
This is pretty shameless. Dr. Laura did not upset people because she had an unpopular opinion. She upset people because she used a racial epithet needlessly and senselessly. This is not an issue of freedom of speech, but one of hate mongering.
