Freedom of Speech

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: Saudi threat to the US

Submitted by Deborah (Saudi Arabia), Jan 27, 2009 at 16:01

We have a policy called "freedom of Speech" Why is it that when someone who is not a Redneck White, Supremicst, Yankee, Slave driver, True American says something that we don't like? Everyone gets up in arms and starts calling them names and being downright slanderous. Where is the freedom of speech.?

I think the best thing to do is for the American Government to stick to its own ideas and focus on its national problems and not interfere in other people's politics, religions, ideals. Maybe the American people need a reminder of what happened when their government interfered with Vietnam and politics of a country that they called inferior.
