I did not vote for obama. However I must give credit where it is due. These westboro nuts abuse the first amendment. He may still destroy our country, but I think he done the right thing on this one.

I despise these Westboro protesters and their methods. I however respect their rights to do so as long as they are peaceful. The law may not be constitutional.

You're kidding right? Did you even listen to the oath you took? Plain speech is easy to defend. Inflammatory speech like westburo or the klan or lewie pharokan is the important ones to defend.

Personally I hope all the folks I mentioned die in a fiery bus crash. But until they do, they still have a right to spew their venom. And God bless the freedom riders that counter protest.

So it's ok to violate the constitutional rights of those we don't agree with. Yea, you're brilliant ! I hope now we can do the same to the gays and the baby killers who protest because I don't like what they have to say either ! Yes that would make my day !

The Westboro crowd disgusts me, but this is exactly why we have a first amendment... to protect unpopular speech. There is no need for laws (or constitutional provisions) to protect speech or protests or ideas everyone agrees with. Same is true of the OWS twits. I think they're morons, but so long as they obey the law (which they're not too good at) they have a right to express their views.

Nobody respects the military or those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country more than I do. These people died to protect the freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, including the rights of a-holes to express their views.

To my mind, the greatest thing about the first amendment is it allows idiots and low-life scum to self-identify... and they can't help themselves... they do it every time. That way the rest of us know who they are and can avoid them like the plague.
When did ignorance become a point of view?

Yeah, he really went out on a limb there, signing a law he knows won't be enforceable, going against one of the most hated groups in America and one which, coincidentally, is on the far right. What's next? Maybe the "KKK is bad" resolution?
Anti-gun liberals can only call us idiots; it takes an idiot with a gun to prove them right.
