Seemingly breaking with the majority of her colleagues at Fox News, Megyn Kelly once again came to the defense of free speech Thursday night, delivering a passionate monologue which stated that America simply doesn’t compromise on one of its bedrock principles.
Kelly claims that politically correct liberals have spent so much time trying not to offend others, that they’ve forgotten that “trampl(ing) on our core ideals” is actually offensive to most Americans.
Megyn Kelly very blatantly and indirectly responded to what some of her Fox colleagues have been saying about Pamela Geller and the “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest tonight.
Bill O’Reilly has made it clear this week he thinks that not only are contests like that unhelpful, but they are counterproductive to certain alliances the U.S. has with Muslim nations.
Kelly didn’t bring up O’Reilly specifically, but very clearly said, “So private citizens shouldn’t do offensive things, even behind closed doors now, lest they cause offense… We don’t compromise America’s bedrock principles just to make other nations like us more.”
Kelly’s guest, Alan Dershowitz, backed up her statements and reminded viewers that there’s only one group – radical Muslims – who try to kill someone when they disagree with their speech.
Earlier this week, Kelly passionately defended the group targeted in the Garland, Texas shooting by saying “If this is where American sentiment stands on this issue, then the jihadis are officially winning.”
Do you agree with Megyn Kelly? Should America never compromise on their core belief in free speech, and are liberals so hell-bent on defending the terrorists actions that they’re ‘officially winning?’
