“She deserved what she got for that disgusting post! “

Disgusting??? Why? I'll bet that many African Americans (all Blacks don't come from Africa) have called Obama a nigger. Now this is an actual word. It's NOT the “N” word. Negro was used as the official name for their “race” for most many, many years. In textbooks and in the common language. Nigger, was a slang word for Negro. It was used in the common language at least through the fifties. Somehow it has become verbal Kryptonite. I say screw the word police.

As far as the other part goes, I wouldn't cry either, as I believe Obama is “Evil”

We must stand up for free speech in this country. If we don't, we will lose it forever.

Oh, and by the way, Obama ISN'T some “nice” man with a couple nice kids. Dennis Rader (the BTK Killer) was a church going, Cub Scout Leader had two kids.

Amen. Why does this word hold so much power? Because the radical, marxist RACIST LEFT gave power to it. When the dirtbag lowlifes like sharpton, “king” malik shabazz, “reverend” wright, et al, are held to the same standard as we are, then I might give a rats ass.

I do not think that freedom of speech necessarily means protecting one's job from the repercussions of saying something that offends people nor protects one's Facebook account from the repercussions of using foul language.

And yes, the "N" word used in the context that she used it was obnoxiously foul language, whatever its origin, and whatever is fair usage in different social contexts. And it seems reasonable for both a company and a site like Facebook to be able to ban or fire people for being obnoxious.

Now if it came to actually putting her in jail for using the "N" word, that would be violating her freedom of speech. On the other hand, if the Secret Service really had cause to believe she was serious about the other stuff, then she could reasonably be in trouble for that. God willing though, she was not serious about it....but its still quite obnoxious to talk like that...and YES I know the left does it all the time. So lets do the right thing, and call this girl down on it, and then turn to them and call them down on it as well!
