As anyone would know, I am an ardent defender of the First Amendment in its most broadest of interpretations. Any speech that is stifled for whatever reason is dangerous for all of us. That's why I have no problem with Robertson saying how he feels. He has that right and I dare anyone to take that away from him, because even though I may not agree with what he says, I will defend his right to say it--as I have numerous times before.
It is clear to remember that nobody was stifling Robertson's First Amendment rights. For a refresher, it reads: "Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech." Robertson works for a private company. They have policies in place, like any employer, they dictate conduct.
A&E is not Congress.
