Now I mentioned in my last post that there is an unhealthy obsession among those on the left with President Obama. I still hold this to be true. It is also no secret that I believe the progressives to be a group of hypocrites. They only support our God given freedoms protect in the Bill of Rights so long as it is politically convenient for them. Proof of both of these statements has shown itself once again.
In 1989 an artist placed a plastic cross into a jar of his own urine and took a photo of it. The photo was called Piss Christ. It returned to New York in 2010 and was met by silence from the left and the President. Submerging an depiction of Jesus Christ in urine, it outraged the Christian community, insults a great religion, and is perfectly legal. This is protected under our freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of expression. No doubt about it.
This reminds me of that story back in the early days of the TEA Party where former CNN Reporter Susan Roesgen blew up on a man who was holding a picture of President Obama depicted as Hitler. This was unacceptable in the eyes of Ms. Roesgen. However, a few years earlier her opinion was slightly different when a man dressed up as President Bush depicting him as Hitler was okay.
Here is a video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WQbNaXJ8Pw
Why are some of these acceptable to progressives while others aren’t? Aren’t they all freedom of speech?
