What's so hard to understand? He's not going to jail and the government isn't after him. Please tell me how his free speech is being infringed upon.
That'll get you censored.
How many White House dinners did George Will attend on the request of Barack Obama? Five or six? Knowing the only reason for these invites were to get Will to write complimentary and supportive articles on Obama's policies. George Will is the same RINO liberal phony as NY Times "conservative" columnist David Brooks. Big government. Pro amnesty. Capitulate to Obama. No credibility.
It is up to the readers of the Post Dispatch to raise hell if they object to the change. They may or may not have much influence, but they are paying some of the bills and are the reason advertisers pay for space. A far-left political activist married to someone in the administration. Sounds like Michelle. I love the title of the administration official: the director of progressive media and online response. And they can never find any place to cut back staff or expenditures!!!
liberal free speech= Liberish
Woo Hoo, Michael Gerson. Puh lease!!
Actually I don't care. I don't live in St. Louis, thank God.
Free speech is a right, but speech you get paid for is a privilege. If George Will wants to be George Will instead of being FedUpinIndiana, then there are limits to how much he can piss off the people who have to pay for him to get to be George Will.
I'm sorry--what part of "free speech" entitles you to a syndicated column? Where's MY syndicated column? Think before you open your mouth, and your constitutional ignorance MIGHT not be so blatantly obvious next time.
But of course....liberals have no interest in controlling free speech an thought.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is a "Major U.S. Newspaper"?
I wonder if the loudmouth feminazi, Nita Chadhaury, who demanded Will be fired, had the same compassion for rape victims back when Pres. Happy Pants Clinton was accused by Kathleen Willy of having raped her. My guess is that.she marched in lockstep with every other femanazi who spouts faux outrage on the subject of rape, unless of course the actual rapist is a prog scumbag like Slick. Disgusting hypocrites the lot of them.
FED: Suggestion> Copy and be ready to paste.
That will also buy you time in the 1st to post wars that go on here.
How many times do you people have to be told, and you STILL don't understand how the whole "Freedom of Speech" thing actually works. It applies to GOVERNMENT action, not the actions of PRIVATE individuals and organizations. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is a PRIVATE business interest exercising its FREEDOM to conduct its business how it seems fit. I just cringe at how you Baggers scream "CONSTITUTION! CONSTITUTION!" but are totally ignorant of how it actually functions. Pathetic....
While not a free speech issue, it is a tolerance issue. The libs like to talk about how tolerant they are of others. That's BS. They're only tolerant when the other individual agrees with them, otherwise they demand that the individual be silenced. This intolerance of the left is what is infecting our universities.
I agree but why would he say such a thing?? I don't agree with his view on this, I usually do, but not on this.
How dare he bring light to the fact that by claiming sexual assault or harrassment that was not, pseudovictims are treated to sympathy and undeserved empathy, and at times ruin the lives of those they accuse (hint hint, Reverend Al... shame on you).
That does not minimize what victims of rape endure during their rape and after, any more than the rape... advocates (those who protest against rape in whatever means they can find) hurt victims by the too oft stated 'rape isn't a sexual crime' mantra.
Rape is a horrible violent intrusive sometimes crippling attack on the victim. It should not be minimized or trivialized. But by equating getting whistled at as being raped, and by denying that some cry wolf for their own gain, real rape victims are hurt again, as well.
Is what George Will wrote that day part of the Conservative beliefs and values?
“a coveted status that confers privileges,” right up there with more amazingly ignorant rants like women have a natural mechanism that protects them from getting pregnant during a rape. At no point did anyone claim he didn't have a right to make such an ignorant statement, What they said is that he should not be provided a public forum, like a news paper to make such ignorant statements. People expect more from elected officials and more from journalists. George Wil became victim of the same insidious virus that plaques Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin an other attention getters who purposely say outrageously ignorant and inflammatory things to get attention for their TV appearances and book promotions. Another great sign of advanced capitalism. Where $$ means more than integrity, ethics, truth or facts.
Read Will’s article, it’s linked in the Blaze story. I references a story where a man and woman in college who had been “hooking up” for a while were hanging out in her dorm room.
The girl thought they had agreed to “just be friends”.
The guy fell asleep on her bed while “hanging out”.
She changed in to PJs and CLIMED IN TO BED WITH HIM.
He sort of woke up and started fondling her and she said “we agreed to be friends I don’t want to have sex with you”.
He stopped, then sort of woke up again and started feeling her up and took her panties off and his underwear.
She said she was so tired and just wanted to sleep so she let him finish, put her panties back on and went to sleep.
A few days later she claimed she was “raped”.
Will’s article was calling out this progressive BS calling something like this assault.
I recommend that guys in college simply allow girls to “rape” them. The girls are just as horny and wanting as the guys. The guys should just hold out, forcing the girls to jump their bones because IT WILL happen for them.
Then, if the girl pisses him off, he can claim “Rape”. In fact, he should record everything and complain the whole time, then say, “I was afraid to push her off of me because she would cry rape and assault!”
Progressive idiots don’t even realize they are driving young men to want to wait till marriage before having sex, the exact opposite of what degenerate Liberals want!
Wow - George Will was a Conservative. I quit listening to him about 7 years ago...just didn't find whole lot of there, there. He's all you're Nina.
Agreed! How dare anyone disagree.
Good grief. What next? Does that monster in the WH ever rest?
Well, at least the "Gates" Foundation will NOT fund abortions in any way shape or form from now on. I'm sure the left is thrilled about that.

Love you guys, but let’s fix that headline! You wrote “Dem Pac Get’s Fact Checked…” Take out that apostrophe in the word “gets”!!!
March 27, 2014 at 11:45am
Uh, double LOL: “They’re”, a contraction of “They are”…
February 27, 2014 at 10:02am
She moves in with the guy, pays for everything, cooked and cleaned for the guy… and she calls HIM stupid?
I just kept watching that stupid door closing… back and forth, back and forth… ARRRGGGHHHHH!!!

I’m waiting for the day when Carney loses it and stomps up and down while screaming “Now you guys stop with all these hard questions!! You supposed to be on OUR side!!!” Easy to make snarky fun of Fox reporters, but when the guys in your back pocket start acting like real journalists… well, that’s a bit of a problem.
October 15, 2013 at 12:33pm
MSNBC doesn’t report news. Their hosts are partisan liberals whose goal it is to uphold the Obama Administration. This is obvious to anyone who listens to their programs. At least on Fox, they don’t try to pass off show like Hannity and Kelly’s new show as hard news shows, rather as the analysis programs they are. People who follow the news are generally smart enough to know that the hosts at MSNBC are inventing facts and disguising them as news. Thus, their ratings dive.
October 8, 2013 at 9:46am
Carney is starting to implode. He must go home at night and think “how much longer can I keep shoveling this crap?” I sense a resignation coming… And another one bites the dust! Kinda hard carrying the master’s water when it’s polluted, eh Jay? The stench alone…

Another reason to simply get rid of everyone there. Emails are pretty indicting, and if Boehner did indeed conspire to exempt himself and other Repubs from Obamacare, he needs to answer for it. Most of the lawmakers in Washington do privately what they can to protect themselves, but talk publicly of the opposite. It’s all a game to them, and frankly, “the American people”, as politicians refer to us ad nauseum, are sick of it.
It may not have been Boehner himself writing those emails. It was probably one of his sheep.
Speaker John Boehner:
Phone: (202) 225-0600
Fax: (202) 225-5117
its not a game to them its a circus freak show to take our eye off the cup with the pea under it.
Mine responded saying they could not return email because of the shutdown, but that they received the email. This government is run by idiots! Park Service webpage is down? Really? It does not take one person to keep the stuff running on autopilot and be unmanned for days, if it can't then the government IT dept needs to be fired.

I’ll bet Pelosi and Obama are shaking in their boots! Maybe now, these Union idiots will learn that like many other Americans, liberal democrats are in this for themselves. They don’t care what ANYONE thinks. You put boots to the ground for Obama Mr. Hoffa, and now Obama’s putting HIS boot somewhere: right on your big fat butt! Enjoy the ride; the kick from this should last quite a while. Ready to come to the other side yet?
September 25, 2013 at 8:28am
No, Chris. Your head is so firmly jammed into Obama’s behind, that even you can’t use the brain God gave you to realize that Cruz is actually trying to SAVE the country from this monstrosity. Have you even read the bill? Have you heard of the insurance nightmares that are already starting to happen? Stop supporting this bill because of who came up with it, and try to use the few brain cells you have to admit that it is a failure. Health care reform? Yes. With this plan? No. It will have the exact opposite effect of what was intended. Wake up.
September 17, 2013 at 10:04am
Interesting to watch O’Donnell try to fit Obama’s actions into his opinion of what he wants the babble to mean. Obama says “red line” and he means “don’t cross this line or else”. Until the line is crossed, Obama gets cold feet, and now “red line” means we MIGHT do something. Good try Larry, but sadly for you conservatives are much smarter than that. Kasparov is absolutely right. Obama laid down a line that was crossed, and he did not follow through on the threat. America continues to lose prominence and importance in the world. Come quickLy, 2016!
September 9, 2013 at 12:22pm
In other news, it was reported that John Boehner has committed to changing his political affiliation to Democrat to more fully reflect his leanings of date. The Republican Party gave him a swift kick in the ass to thank him for making this move.
This guy has given me a great idea! There are streets in my town that I never use, so by golly, I am going to demand that my tax dollars ONLY be used to repave and take care of THOSE STREETS THAT I USE! And by the way, there are local government services that I don’t use, so forget that too! I only want to support those public services that directly affect me, me ME!!! Who cares about those kids whose parents aren’t bright enough to home school their kids? And who cares if they don’t have enough money to send their kids to private schools? Why educate them at all? yeah, thanks for the great idea here!
Well fedupinindiana...do you believe people living in apartments should also pay school tax? Its not the school tax that is being opposed as much as it puts our homes endangered. Our homes are OUR property...not the school boards. We want an FAIR and EQUAL tax so all living in the township pays a share. I have no kids, and yet pay roughly $2500 in school tax. If I couldn't come up with the money, I LOSE MY HOUSE. Yet, I could be an apartment dweller with numerous kids, and I don't have to pay anything. Does this sound fair to you? Or rather my state is talking about eliminating the school tax and instead raising the sales tax and state income tax. This way EVERY worker pays to educate the children.

Wow and this ******* actually wanted to be our President? He is, very simply, a fool.
Doubtful, and it's a ironic that it takes a Canadian to show our own what backbone and loyalty really mean.Kudos to Mr. Baird.
NO AS**HOLES never learn!
April 11, 2013 at 11:57am
Why are these people not in jail? Make them pay back the money they stole from us, and put them in jail for a minimum of 10 years, period. That might make people think before they decide to cheat everyone out of money because they are too lazy to work for a living.
April 6, 2013 at 5:22pm
O’Reilly just hates being challenged, and he has taken this way too far. Rather than just admit he blew it, and issue an apology, he just keeps “bloviating” and will not let this go. If we keep complaining, I fully expect his head to simply explode on live TV.
April 3, 2013 at 9:26pm
It’s very sad and very telling that the our President feels the Constitution “constrains” him, when most Americans feel that it frees us. This man is very simply the most dangerous thing that has happened to the United States in many years. God have mercy on us in 2016.
Like he cares about the constitution at all. He knows it would spark a revolution if he just banned guns with a stroke of his pen like he really wants to.
Why wait for God's mercy until 2016? Why not ask for it now, while there's still a chance? He has clearly removed His hand from our country. Could it be the 56 million dead babies charged to our account?
 March 30, 2013 at 12:03am
Wow, it’s really hard to believe that a major news network would make fun of a conservative Christian! And yes, that was meant to be sarcastic. Earlier this season, ABC aired an episode of “Body of Proof” in which a fanatical Christian ran his family like a dictator. It ended up that he was an abuser. Of course. The media hammers Christians on a regular basis, in a way they would never even consider doing to the Islam faith. Time for Christians to stand up for their faith and let the media know that we spend money too. Maybe if we stop buying products from companies that sponsor shows like this, it could make a difference.
Quit watching their networks, quit the movies (I haven't been in a theater in years), don't buy products associated with them.
It's too bad - and kind of stupid-looking - that it took the Mrs. Loudon actually participating in this particular swap in the first place. There is something to be said for sticking to one's values and religious beliefs in the face of being on a national t.v. show. And I know it's hard to walk away when you're thinking, "Hey, I think we can do something positive here in spite of the situation." But you can't always do that. And now, the Leftists have had ANOTHER opportunity to slam the Right.
Is there some reason in particular that people who are Chrisitans or religious Jews ALLOW themselves to be put to shame like this. There WAS an option to say no. But they went for it (probably w/all good intentions up front), and wound up being made to look unreasonable, etc.
We need to get outselves together and small that coffee. It WILL NOT GET ANY EASIER. These ARE the "last days" - staring us in the face. It will ONLY get worse. Not better. Wake up, folks, it's a whole lot later than you think it is.
Sorry about the typos in my post. I am unable to correct them, but I DO see them. : )
