That speech is protected is critical to a free society. That those we oppose also have complete freedom of speech is critical. Once we limit the speech of anybody, then the speech of everybody is at risk.
I say this in light of Donald Trump’s recent statements about illegal immigrants that were not politically correct. We would expect the left to rise up in indignation and ridicule Trump calling him all of their pet names such as racist for speaking out against the injustice to all American Citizens that is illegal immigration.
We also have the hierarchy or politically correct Republicans denouncing Trump and trying to silence him because this speech could hurt the chances of the Republican Party in the fall of 2016. Trump has made statements that have been argued and discussed in politically correct terms for some time. While being politically correct, those who would join such a discussion would argue around the fringes of the problem being careful not to get to the heart of the problem.
The politically correct will always soften their argument with the comment that they understand the overwhelming numbers of illegals are law abiding citizens. That statement is absolutely false. How can you be a law abiding citizen when you broke the law to enter the country, you are living here illegally, and you are not a citizen. 100% of these people have broken the laws of the United States.
There are also a large number of these same people who break other laws continually. We read stories about the horrendous crimes they commit every day. With so many sympathizers of these law breakers in the press and national, state, and local governments, we can rationally surmise that the real number of crimes is astronomical.
Yet, when Trump calls attention to this disaster, rather than taking the opportunity to encourage honest debate about a real and serious problem, those on the left and in the Republican hierarchy ridicule Trump to silence him. Both groups do this to advance their agendas while ignoring this problem and refusing to discuss openly and honestly what is best for the nation.
