Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin -- Defenders of freedom when it's convienent.Submitted by Skip on Sun, 07/25/2010 - 13:40
Newt Gingrich recently wrote an article on why the planned "Cordoba House" mosque should not be allowed to be developed near Ground Zero in NYC. I expected this from a big government type to only defend private property and freedom of speech where it is politically correct. And as much as I doubt Sarah Palin's intelligence, and abhor her stance of wars, I really thought when it came to domestic issues she would be someone who could defend freedom no matter how unpopular something is. I now know that is untrue and she can not be trusted. Here is a direct quote from Sarah Palin's comments on Gingrich's article. In agreement with Newt, Palin says:
"This is not an issue of religious tolerance but of common moral sense."
This is not someone who would defend private property and freedom of speech for the sake of private property and freedom of speech. In other words, these values are a means to another ends; not an end in and of themselves for Sarah Palin.
