The First Amendment (1791) states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
So why is Paula Deen being persecuted?
She used the N-word, and words are speech. Therefore her freedom of speech is under assault.
Who are the real racists? She admitted that she had used the N-word in the past. Why is she being punished for using the word? Simply because she’s white. That’s right: Paula Deen is being judged and punished simply because she is a white woman who used the N-word.
Using the word does not make her a racist. The real racists are those punishing her for exercising her freedom of speech.
How many other words will we be punished for speaking? Welcome to communist America.
