Free speech in America
QB Drew Brees apologizes for saying ‘we’re all in this together’
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was hit with massive backlash, including from other NFL players, for saying:
“I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America, or our country. … Every time I stand with my hand over my heart looking at that flag and singing the national anthem, that’s what I think about. And in many cases, it brings me to tears thinking about all that has been sacrificed – and not just those in the military, but for that matter, those throughout the Civil Rights movements of the 60s, and all that has been endured by so many people up until this point.
“Is everything right with our country right now? No, it’s not. … But I think what you do by standing there and showing respect to the flag with your hand over your heart is it shows unity. It shows … that we are all part of the solution.”
Of course, Drew Brees was forced to apologize.
NY Times staffers demand viewpoint censorship
The New York Times is under fire today for publishing the opinion of Sen. Tom Cotton (R, Ark.) on the use of troops to quell the unrest following the death of George Floyd. NY Times journalists and opinion writers have insisted that such views should not be even published because they disagree with it. … The call for effective censorship of opposing views from journalists is a chilling example of how much ground has been lost in the protection of free speech values. — Jonathan Turley
