The Hill Blog :: Rep. Mike Doyle: Savage Attack on Autism Is Unjustified..

Blue, Green, and Black Abstract by Cindy Sue

Yesterday's The Hill Blog contains an editorial by Rep. Mike Doyle on Michael Savage's recent disabilistic affront on persons with autism:

As Representative Doyle referenced, definitely have to say that there has been one sizable part of my Conscience playing with that Michael was undoubtedly expressing his Freedom of Speech when he verbally assaulted families with autism.. Then I just this second got to thinking yet again on a very recent documentable experience of my own..

Funny how that creature, Freedom of Speech works.. You rant abusively from one end of this country to the other, and sponsors will beat down your front door to pay you millions of dollars to continue to insult upon the dignities of minorities..

But.....

Try being some "nobody" from a little ol' town called, oh, let's play make-believe and call it, say, "Talking Rock"..

Now.. Fight tooth and nail every single day just to put a 10 cent package, make that an inflation-affected 20 cent package of ramen noodles on your dinner table at night...

Both publicly and privately, with those ramen noodles as fuel to drive your Fingertips along with the inspiration of your dearest Disability Community Friends and Mentors to provide the Wind beneath your Wings, boldly, pridefully advocate for the Rights, Access, and Inclusion of your extended family in one of the fewer places not so many would ever dare to dare to go.....

Then...

Try posting a respectful response to that same presidential candidate's piece where he speaks on FISA over at Huffington Post, and tell me what happens to your constitutionally ordained Freedom of Speech..

Here's a little Hint: Twitter.. Studebaker.. The Fourth of July.. Look, Ma, a Tweet..

Follow the bouncing birdie over to the 3,600+ other comments over there, and... Look, Ma.....

Wait. Dadgum dead air.....?????

Congratulations, you've just been censored. Can anyone say.....
