Uber-Leftist Bill Maher Defends Free Speech … “This is America, Do We Not Have the Right to Draw Whatever We Want?” (VIDEO)

FREE SPEECH MAKES STRANGE BED FELLOWS … UBER-LEFTIST BILL MAHER COMES TO THE DEFENSE OF PAM GELLAR.

Like him or hate him, agree with him or not, Bill Maher is 100% consistent and correct when t comes to radical Islam and their assault on our rights like freedom of speech. On his latest HBO show, ‘Real Time‘ with Bill Maher, he takes on the recent shooting in Garland, TX where two radical Islamist jihadist were shot dead by a Garland police officer as they tried to attack the “draw the Prophet Mohammad’ event.

Bill Maher starts out by saying, “this is America, do we not have the right to draw whatever we want?” Maher is 100% correct. Maher also mentioned the writers group, PEN, that recently gave Charlie Hebdo an award for courage. However, over 200 writers, including Garry Tradeau of Doonesbury comic fame, objected to the giving of the award, of which Maher thought was pretty crazy. I would have to agree, imagine a media that condemns other media for practicing free speech only because certain elitists in the media think their brand of free speech is the only allowed free speech? Does that not reek of censorship?

Maher reads Tradeau’s writings, “By punching downward, by attacking a powerless, disenfranchised minority with crude, vulgar drawings closer to graffiti than cartoons, Charlie wandered into the realm of hate speech, which in France is only illegal if it directly incites violence. Well, voila—the 7 million copies that were published following the killings did exactly that, triggering violent protests across the Muslim world.  Then Bill Maher came out with the money line that all need to take a long hard look at. Maher says, “so this assumes that we just have to accept that Muslims are unable to control themselves the way we would ask everyone else in the world. To me that’s bigotry. That’s the soft bigotry of low expectations.” Maher further opines, “We don’t ask anyone else in the world

MAHER GOT THAT RIGHT.

Then we are presented with typical stupidity and asinine comment that represents today’s PC liberalism of squishiness from MSNBC’s Alex Wagne who says ,”isn’t the whole point of free speech not to judge people based on what people say”? What turnip truck did this lib fall off of? But like a typical liberal, you cant offend and judge people. Panelist Will Cain would slap her down saying, “no that is definitely not the role of free speech, you judge, you just don’t censor”. I thought for one second Cain was going to use the old SNL line from the classic Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin Point-Counterpoint skit,Jane Alex, you ignorant slut”.

Cain then went on to make a point that should be a wake up call to all of the media as he said, “You don’t just have a right to free speech, when someone’s position is, if you offend me, I will kill you, it becomes virtuous for you to offend that person. You need to offend that person. You need to shock that person out of that horrible position.” AMEN BROTHER!!! But instead, the cowardly MSM shrinks when it is their head on the line.

Mediaite:

Maher brought up Charlie Hebdo and said he’s a little disturbed by the whole “soft bigotry of low expectations” when it comes to that magazine’s critics assuming that “Muslims aren’t able to control themselves.”

MSNBC’s Alex Wagner asked, “Isn’t the whole point of free speech not to judge people?” Cain shot back that when people threaten to kill just for expressing opinions, “it becomes virtuous to offend that person… [and] you need to shock them out of their horrible position.”

Former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee said, “You’re talking about hatred!” Maher found that a little mind-boggling in a conversation about people who kill for free speech. He said everyone should be on the side of Muslims who just want to live their lives and don’t draw attention to people mocking their faith.

Wagner and Cain threw down over the appropriateness of the Charlie Hebdo award, with Wagner arguing that journalists who travel the world and put themselves in danger are “practicing courageous acts” moreso than cartoonists.

Juan Williams Says Pam Geller “Engaged in Gratuitous Offensive Behavior That Led to the Deaths of Two People” (VIDEO)

WHY DOES JUAN WILLIAMS HATE FREE SPEECH … JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF LIBERAL STUPIDITY.

When free speech in the United States protects pornography, art that places a Crucifix of Jesus Chris in urine and the burning of the America flag, Mohammad is fair game as well. Sorry Juan William, you don’t get to say I am for free speech, but …

In the United States of America, there are no rules put on “free speech’ as afforded by the US Constitution unless you yell “fire” or “bomb”. But that is not the case anymore for liberals and the likes of Juan Williams. Listen to Williams below say that he is all for free speech and then tell us just the opposite and say that he is against it when it comes to the rights of Pam Gellar and the Draw the Prophet Mohammad cartoon contest. Williams says in the VIDEO below, “because she engaged in gratuitous offensive behavior that led to the deaths of two people”. Okay’ let’s stop here. Yes her actions did lead to the deaths of two people, they there two radical Islamist jihadists, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi. Both of these radical Muslims have been killed and we wont have to worry about them anymore. Pam Gellar should be given a medal for smoking these two out.

Then Williams goes on to say, Gellar wasn’t about writing a book like Salman Rushdie or she wasn’t about Charlie Hebdo engaging in satire, but instead she did this as a provocative act to offend people. REALLY, YOU FOOL? Juan, are you really this stupid? You would really make the distinction and defend drawing a cartoon because it was satire versus used to be provocative? Lets just come out and say and and not mince worse, Juan Williams is a typical liberal ass-hat who only likes free speech that he agrees with.Satire is meant to be proactive you idiot! To radical Islam, they make no differentiation. So when you are in-front of a black cloaked jihadist with a knife in his hand about to cut your head off, making the excuse that your cartoon was done for satire will make no difference. As for Salman Rushdie and Satanic Versus, he knew exactly what he was doing and poked the hornets nest. But because Pamela Gellar is a conservative, anything she does is hated by the LEFT and they will make excuses.

If you have ever wondered whether Juan Williams was just a liberal who was misguided and there was some hope for, think again. The law of the land is the United States Constitution, not Shariah law, at least for now.

Hey Juan, what about the freedom of speech for radical Imam Anjem Choudary saying that Pamela Geller should be put to death? Are you in favor of that being protected free speech as well?

Radical Imam Anjem Choudary Says on Live TV that Pamela Geller She Should be Put to Death for Hosting Mohammed Cartoon Contest (VIDEO)

WELCOME TO ISLAM FREEDOM OF SPEECH …

If you missed it, watch below the amazing exchange from FOX News – Hannity between Radical London Imam Anjem Choudary and Pamela Geller.  During the interview, Iman Choudary said that Pamela Geller should be brought in front of a Sharia court and put to death for her actions. That is correct, on LIVE TV Choudary called for the death of Geller and wanted her dead for deliberately hosting a cartoon contest that insulted the prophet Mohammad. The hell with free protected speech as afforded by the United States Constitution, this Iman wants Geller in front of a Muslim Sharia court and be put to death. Welcome to Islam, the religion of Peace.

After Geller had to listen to the vile threats from Choudary, it was her turn to talk; however, the radical Iman kept interrupting her. That was when Pam Geller had the line of the night and said to Anjem Choudary, “I’m talking, sir … I know you’re used to stepping over women but you’re not going to have it here.”

Second Garland, TX ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ Shooter Identified as 34 Year Old Nadir Soofi

SECOND ISLAMIST IDENTIFIED …

The authorities have identified the second Garland, Texas gunman radical Islamist who opened fire at the draw ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ as 34 year old Nadir Soofi. He and his fellow jihadist, Elton Simpson, who were roommates and lived in Phoenix, AZ attacked the pro-free speech event and were shot dead by Garland police. Simpson was reportedly known to the FBI for his possible terrorist ties; however, Soofi appears not to have been. Imagine that, you are the roommate of a supposed terrorist and no one thinks to look at his actions. Really? One thing is for certain, we will no longer have to worry about either one of them now.

The two men attended the Islamic Center of North Phoenix together.

Nadir Soofi

Authorities in Texas have identified Nadir Soofi as the second gunman who opened fire on a “Draw Muhammad” art contest in a Dallas suburb on Sunday night.

Soofi, authorities say, shared an apartment in Phoenix with Elton Simpson, who was convicted of lying to federal authorities in 2011 and was considered a terrorist suspect. The two men attended the Islamic Center of North Phoenix together.

Just minutes before Soofi and Simpson launched their attack at a community center in Garland, Texas, the two men posted messages on social media accounts with the hashtag “#TexasAttack.” Groups such as ISIS picked up on the hashtag and posted messages of support for the two gunmen, who were then killed by a police officer outside the building.

CNN: What we know about the Garland shooters,  Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi.

ELTON SIMPSON

He may have been an ISIS supporter

While U.S. authorities investigate whether Sunday’s shooting has any link to international terrorism, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack. In a radio broadcast, the terror group referred to Simpson and Soofi as two of its “soldiers” and and threatened more attacks.

Moments before the shootout, Simpson posted an ominous tweet with the hashtag #texasattack: “May Allah accept us as mujahideen.”

The tweet also said Simpson and his fellow attacker had pledged allegiance to “Amirul Mu’mineen,” which means “the leader of the faithful.” CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank said that probably refers to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.

Earlier, Simpson had asked his readers on Twitter to follow an ISIS propagandist.

After the shooting, the same propagandist tweeted: “Allahu Akbar!!!! 2 of our brothers just opened fire.”

NADIR SOOFI

He died near where he was born

Soofi was born in Garland and spent the first three years of his life there, his mother said, according to The Dallas Morning News.

“He was raised in a normal American fashion,” Sharon Soofi said. “Yes, he was very politically involved with the Middle East. Just aware of what’s going on. I don’t know if something snapped or if Elton Simpson was just working on him.”

He left behind an 8-year-old son

Sharon Soofi also said her son had an 8-year-old boy whom he adored.

“He put his son above everything,” she said. “The hard thing to comprehend is why he would do this and leave an 8-year-old son behind.”

He went to a prestigious private school

One Gunman in Garland, TX ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ Shooting Identified … Elton Simpson, of Arizona Who Was Previously the Subject of a Terror investigation

ONE OF THE GUNMAN HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AND HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY BEEN INVESTIGATED FOR TERROR …

According to KTRK, ABC13, is reporting that one of the suspected gunmen has been identified, who was killed last night by Garland, Texas police outside of the ‘Muhammad Art & Cartoon Contest’ as Elton Simpson. According to the FBI, Simpson was a previous subject of a terror investigation. Hmm, how did he seem to slip through the cracks if they knew who he was? How does an individual who has ties to terror allowed to walk among us? At least he will not be able to partake in another terror attack, ever. Also, the second shooter was his roommate, both of who were from Arizona. Both gunman were shot dead by Garland police last night outside of the Curtis Culwell Center.

ABC News can confirm that one of the suspects is Elton Simpson, an Arizona man who was previously the subject of a terror investigation. He’s from phoenix and television stations in Phoenix are reporting the second shooter was Simpson’s roommate. We’re still waiting on his name.

The FBI believes Simpson sent out a tweet using the hashtag #texasattack about a half hour before shooting.

From ABC News, Simpson was well known to the FBI. Five years ago he was convicted for lying to federal agents about his plans to travel to Africa, but a judge ruled the government did not adequately prove he was going to join a terror group there. Thanks judge.

Below is the Tweet that was sent out prior to the attack in Garland Texas. Twitter has suspends account that warned about a ‘Texas attack’ 15 minutes before incident at anti-Muslim event.

Twitter appears to have suspended an account that tweeted about an attack in Texas 15 minutes before shots were fired at an anti-Muslim event in the city of Garland.

Under the profile name “Shariah is Light”, the tweet read (See Update II): “The bro with me and myself have given bay’ah to Amirul Mu’mineen. May Allah accept us as mujahideen [jihadists]. Make dua. #texasattack.”

The tweet was posted at 6.35pm local time in Texas – 15 minutes before Garland Police Department received its first reports of gunfire at the anti-Muslim event. In a tweet sent three hours before its last, the profile recommended people follow another account – @AbuHu55ain – which has also now been suspended.

Shooting at Muhammad Cartoon Contest at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, TX at Pamela Geller Texas Free Speech Event (Update: Two Gunman Dead)

A SHOOTING HAS TAKEN PLACE OUTSIDE THE TEXAS FREE SPEECH EVENT IN GARLAND, TX HELD BY PAMELA GELLER …

According to FOX News, two individuals were shot outside of the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, TX where the Texas Free Speech Event was taking place. The center was put on lock-down following the shooting. The ‘free speech” event (VIDEO) was a ‘Muhammad Art and Cartoon Contest’. This was the same location that hosted a pro-Islam contest last month. Of course there were no gunman trying to kill people at that conference who disagreed with that one.

The First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be hosted by the Curtis Caldwell Center.

Two individuals were shot dead by police outside of the event as it was reported, “two males drove up to the front of the building in a car,” as the event was coming to an end. “Both males were armed and began shooting at a Garland … security officer. Garland Police officers engaged the gunmen, who were both shot and killed.” It is probably not that much of a stretch that the two gunman that were killed were Islamists looking to quell free speech.

Female Air Force Veteran Michelle Manhart Arrested by Valdosta State University Police for Protecting US Flag from Desecration … Valdosta State University Loves Flag Burners More so Than Flag Wavers

WELCOME TO THE POLICE STATE THAT HAS BECOME THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA … AND THE SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOR OF COLLEGE CAMPUSES.

There are not too many times that I take the side against law enforcement, this is one of them. SHAME ON YOU VALDOSTA STATE.

38 year old Michelle Manhart, a military veteran was detained but not charged by Valdosta State University police after she approached a group of protesters on campus who were walking on an American flag and took it from them. The incident where it would appear to be a protected police act was at Valdosta State in Georgia. As part of their protest against racial inequality, some students stamped on the American flag. Because that makes all the sense in the world, these fools trampled on the very symbol of a country that provides them their freedoms. Manhart was given a criminal trespass warning which effectively bans her from any university activity, including graduation and football games. I am guessing that Manhart really has no plans on attending any Valdosta State football games.  As I matter of fact, neither do I. A word to these ass-bite protesters, if you don’t like this country and you think you are being treated unfairly, LEAVE!!!

“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”

Manhart said she was taken into custody by VSU police officers who then returned the flag to the demonstrators. She admitted to The Valdosta Daily Times that she resisted arrest after seeing the flag being returned.

Flag fracas at Valdosta State – Protesters walk on Stars and Stripes; veteran banned from university for taking flag from demonstrators.

The cowards who desecrated the American flag refused to identify their groups name. What a bunch of brave souls you are, almost as gutless as the Valdosta University police.

Michelle Manhart, an Air Force veteran, said she was not planning to take the flag from the group, but she had heard about the group’s recent campus demonstrations and wanted to take action.

“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”

Manhart said she was taken into custody by VSU police officers who then returned the flag to the demonstrators. She admitted to The Valdosta Daily Times that she resisted arrest after seeing the flag being returned.

The group reportedly declined to press charges against Manhart. The officers attempting to detain her also declined to press charges for resisting.

Instead, Manhart was given a criminal trespass warning which effectively bans her from any university activity, including graduation and football games, said Andy Clark, vice president for enrollment, marketing and communications.

The demonstrators declined to identify their group to The Valdosta Daily Times or speak with a reporter about their cause, but they did engage VSU students in heated debate.

Check out these sad, pathetic little police officers take down Michelle Manhart. It took four of these little men to bring her down and arrest Michelle Manhart as one of the loser cops tells people to back up as no one seems to be near . I hope you all are so proud of yourself. The four of you are a complete and total disgrace.

Meet the brave Valdosta State University that arrested a woman for protecting the American Flag

Just curious, would you be doing this if she was black?

Valdosta State University loves flag burners more so than flag wavers.

Valdosta State University, which is funded by tax dollars, issued two statements defending the desecration of the American flag.

“We respect the rights of people to peacefully assemble and voice their opinions,” the statement read. “Our primary concern is the safety of our students, faculty and staff and our ability to carry out our responsibilities to all our students on campus. We are monitoring the situation.”

On Saturday, the president of Valdosta State, sent me this statement:

“The American flag represents everything that is best about our country,” Dr. William McKinney said. “As the Supreme Court has held, one of those things is the right to free speech, which includes the right to disrespect even the symbol of our country. While I firmly disagree with the actions of the protesters, I understand their right to protest.”

University of Michigan Cancels ‘American Sniper’ Screening … ‘Made Students Feel Unsafe’ (Update U-M football coach Jim Harbaugh To the Rescue, Movie Back On)

REALLY … Maybe the University of Michigan should change their name from the Wolverines to the “Weenies”.

AMERICA, DO YOU REALIZE YOU ARE BEING DESTROYED FROM WITHIN RIGHT?  University of Michigan spokesman Rick Fitzgerald confirmed to The College Fix on Tuesday the movie, American Sniper” was cancelled because it made students feel unsafe. GOOD GRIEF!!! Instead, the University was going to show Paddington the Bear.  What kind of gutless cowards exist on college campuses today that continually play the victim card? You people are going to do well in life, but then again, these are the same folks that live in your parents home until your 30. Hey Michigan, you might want to change your fight song to …  Hail! to the victors “victims” valiant. Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes “cowards”.

However,  University of Michigan sophomore Jason Weaver still has the right to call himself a Wolverine as he said, “It would be nice to see the university … take a stand against outrageous claims of ‘student exclusion. The film American Sniper in no way creates student exclusion any more than Saving Private Ryan”. You would be 100% correct. But we can’t have anything on a college campus that would properly depict radical Muslims Islamists as Nazi’s.

What a sad state of affairs at our American Universities

University: ‘While our intent was to show a film, the impact of the content was harmful, and made students feel unsafe and unwelcome at our program’

A scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” at the University of Michigan was abruptly cancelled Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film perpetuates “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims.

“The movie American Sniper not only tolerates but promotes anti-Muslim … rhetoric and sympathizes with a mass killer,” according to an online letter circulated among the campus community via Google Docs that garnered the signatures.

The signers were mostly students, but also some staff, as well as the Muslim Students’ Association and the president of Students Allied for Freedom and Equality, a Palestinian solidarity group at UMich.

The online memo, titled a “collective letter from Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) and Muslim students on campus,” accused the public university of “tolerating dangerous anti-Muslim and anti-MENA propaganda” by showing the movie, the highest grossing film of 2014.

follows U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps commendation, according to his official Facebook page. But the protestors see him differently.

As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, more than 300 students protested the decision to screen the film because it advanced “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims. The online petition was started by a “Palestinian solidarity group” called the Students Allied for Freedom and Equality and the Muslim Students’ Association. And the university folded like a cheap suit. Um, “negative and misleading stereotypes” … the actions depicted in American Sniper are the truth. I am so sorry if Muslim students can’t handle the truth … what do you think that radical Muslim Islamists act like? So is it a misleading stereotype to depict radical Muslim as savage, beheading murders?

UPDATE I: Jim Harbaugh endorses ‘American Sniper’ after U-M cancels showing

THAN YOU COACH HARBAUGH … FINALLY SOME GUTS COME TO ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN!!!

Harbaugh

Twitter – Jim Harbaugh

For four months, Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh’s Twitter feed has been a combination of entertainment, opponent tweaks and comments on his team.

Tonight, he walked into a university controversy.

On Tuesday, the university canceled a scheduled Friday night showing of the movie “American Sniper” due to pressure from Muslim and Arab students after a student-led petition drive challenged its depiction of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiments.

After 9:30 p.m., Harbaugh weighed in, with a message to his 215,000 followers.

UPDATE II : U-M reverses course, will show ‘American Sniper’ … Gutless Weenie UM administration tries to save face. 

After a day filled with intense controversy, the University of Michigan reversed course late Wednesday night and decided to show the movie “American Sniper” at its originally scheduled time and place.

“It was a mistake to cancel the showing of the movie ‘American Sniper’ on campus as part of a social event for students,” the statement from E. Royster Harper, the vice president of student life, said. It was sent just after 10:45 p.m. to the media.

“The initial decision to cancel the movie was not consistent with the high value the University of Michigan places on freedom of expression and our respect for the right of students to make their own choices in such matters.

 

Hillary Clinton Cronies Could Care Less About the First Amendment … HRC Super Volunteers Look to Curb Free Speech When it Comes to Describing Hillary

SEXISM IS THE NEW RACISM … According to Hillary Clinton supporters, sexism now means using such words as ‘polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident, secretive, will do anything to win, represents the past, and out of touch.

The HRC Super Volunteers, a group of true believers Hillary Clinton supporters have sent out an email to journalists warning them of words they cannot use to describe Hillary. The “super volunteers,” who claim they are not connected to Clinton’s political operation, have warned that such words like ‘polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident and secretive’ to describe Hillary Clinton are deemed sexist. HUH? So much for Freedom of Speech when it comes to Hillary Clinton. We already know that she rates about a zero when it comes to being transparent and trust-worthy as seen by her past scandals and her  private email server that we now know has been scrubbed clean. Oh wait, is that sexist? , Hypocrisy alert, but of course its perfectly fine for Hillary to use such words.

Monkeys_see-hear-speak-post

Journalists, you have been warned: The HRC Super Volunteers know what you said about Hillary Clinton. And if they don’t like it, they’re going to call you out.

The group, a collection of Clinton die-hards, have launched a campaign to combat media sexism as the former Secretary of State contemplates a 2016 presidential bid.

“Super volunteers, help us find journalists smearing Hillary. We must push back against their sexism,” the group said Friday on Twitter.

The volunteers are not connected to Clinton’s political operation. “We’re not at all attached to the campaign, not at all,” John West, one of the group’s founders, told the Washington Examiner on Thursday. “All we are is a Facebook group of Democrats. We met in 2007 and stayed connected afterwards.”

They’re already putting some journalists covering Clinton on notice — and the list of words they deem off-limits is extensive.

“A group called HRC Super Volunteers just warned me ‘We will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism,’” tweeted Amy Chozick, a reporter for the New York Times, on Wednesday. “Sexist words, they say, include ‘polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident’…Also sexist, according to HRC Super Volunteers: ‘Secretive’ and ‘will do anything to win, represents the past, out of touch…’”

The email, according to Chozick, warned, “You are on notice that we will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism.”

Hillary Clinton uses words to 2007 about Secret Email Accounts that no one is allowed to use now to describe her.

So basically, any word that appropriately describes Hillary Clinton for what she truly is, acts and believes is off limits. GOOD GRIEF. For the past 6+ years under Obama anything anyone has said against his disastrous and ridiculous policies and agenda, they have been branded racist. Now the same will hold true and you will be called sexist. Enough is enough. The government is supposed to be of, by and for the People … not one to protect scurrilous people who should be forbidden from running because of past bad acts.

KING Barack Obama Spoke at Civic Group in Cleveland, OH and Called for Mandatory Voting … Isn’t It a Right to Vote and a State? Judge Andrew Napolitano Rips the Constitutional Scholar Obama

MANDATORY VOTING … IF YOU LIKE THE PERSON YOU VOTED  FOR YOU CAN KEEP VOTING FOR THEM … YEAH, WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT WORKED OUT WITH MANDATORY HEALTH CARE, DON’T WE?

Is Barack Obama an authoritarian fascist? One would think so with his recent comments where he floated the idea that voting should be mandatory in the United States. That is kind of comical coming from the man who could not find his way to vote as a state or federal Senator. Obama wants to making voting mandatory. What else id a wannabe King to do whose party did not show up in the last election, but make people vote. Obama calls it transformative, others would call it authoritarian. Exactly what part about the right to vote being a right doesn’t Obama understand? The right to vote is a form of free speech and you have both the right to vote or the right not to. But not with this fascist. But Obama does not have the best interest of America in mind when it comes to voting in the US, he would want people to be forced to vote who either, had no clue as to who or what was on the ballot or individuals who did not wish to volunteer in the process. Of course Obama is against voter ID so that one can prove they are who they are to vote.

President Obama, whose party was trounced in last year’s midterm election due in part to poor turnout among Democrats, endorsed the idea of mandatory voting Wednesday.

“It would be transformative if everybody voted,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall event in Cleveland. “That would counteract [campaign] money more than anything. If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.”

Mr. Obama raised the subject during a discussion of curbing the influence of campaign donations in U.S. elections. The president said he had never discussed the idea publicly before, but said Australia and some other countries have compulsory voting.

Appearing on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Judge Andrew Napolitano blasted President Barack. As Judge Napolitano said to Cavuto, “What kind of a right is this, the right to vote, if you don’t have the right to decide whether or not to exercise the right?” Napolitano went on to say, “the government can’t force you to stand up and say yes, it can’t force you to stand up and make a decision.” Napolitano further opined, “many people vote by not voting where they are basically saying, a pox on both your houses.”

However, Judge Andrew Napolitano reserved his best comment for last for Obama when he stated, “here is the boat that the president also misses. [...] In America there is no national federal election, there are 50 state elections. The states set the terms for elections.
