Rush Limbaugh does not have a constitutional right to bully people in a paid job on a radio station. He has a constitutional right to say how he feels, and I have a constitutional right to say how I feel. I have a constitutional right to sign a petition, and to ask like-minded people to sign that petition, and to call advertisers (many of whom I do business with) and say that I hope they will reconsider buying ads on a program that promotes bullying. Free speech is for everyone, and I am exercising mine. It amazes and saddens me that people are so quick to defend the free speech rights of bullies and hatemongers, and so quick to attack those who speak out against those bullies and hatemongers. I am neither a narcissist, a bully, nor the modern incarnation of John Wilkes Booth, nor am I self-righteous; I am, however, on a crusade. I am a Christian mom who has had it with bullies. Period.
