An Open Letter to the David Letterman Haters

This is addressed to all those who called for the firing of David Letterman:

The "conservatives" (and I use that term very loosely) who are calling for the firing of David Letterman for his hateful joke about Sara Palin's daughter are bastards. Bastards in the sense that you are the illegitimate children of the American concept of free speech.

Your response to David Letterman is worse than what he did.

Your response smells like fascism to me. It smells like the gases escaping the crematoria of Nazi Germany. It smells like a speech code on a college campus. It smells like forcing a woman to wear a burqa.

It smells like the iron fist of tyranny wearing the clothes of righteous indignation.

David Letterman has a right to say what he said.

I do not agree with what he said. I do, however, assert that he has a right to say it, and I will defend that right with everything that I am, with every tool at my disposal.

Shame on you.

We have something called free speech in America.

You people need to think before you oppress other people. Repent of your evil and think a little about what you are advocating. You are acting just exactly like the progressive statists.

Thank You for your time.
