I thought Imus was a liberal. I could be wrong considering I've never listened to his show, but I thought I remember something about him backing Kerry in 2004. Beyond that I don't like the idea of silencing anyone. I think it was stated best in the movie The American President: "America isn't easy. America is advanced citizenship. You gotta want it bad, 'cause it's gonna put up a fight. It's gonna say "You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours. You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country can't just be a flag; the symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then, you can stand up and sing about the "land of the free"."
I don't know if you are aware or not, but Don Imus is one of you. By "you," I mean liberal.
He may think he's a liberal, but these quotes say otherwise:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Noroton/List_of_controversial_Don_Imus_quotes_on_women_and_minorities
