Kudos to David Limbaugh for noting that #StandWithPhil is not a 'free speech' matter
Can't say I agree with much else he wrote. However, I am glad to see David Limbaugh stepping up as the first conservative I've seen to note the obvious about that weird an wacky reality TV situation we've all been talking about this week:
"Of course, this isn’t a violation of Robertson’s First Amendment rights, because the censorial actions emanated not from the government, but from a private company, which is not constitutionally barred from doing what it did."
—David Limbuagh, writing for WND
Exactly. People have every last right to stand with unfortunate comments, to stand against a show or a network, and to make their opinions known as forcefully and loudly as they want (within rational reason). But they cannot hide behind the veil of speech suppression.
This one distinction, allowed to sink in, would do wonders for this and all future debates.
