"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". ~ Andrew Sheperd, The American President
I think he is brave and amazing. People don't often go against the grain for something they believe in like he has. I have friends on FB who are upset by his actions, but for me, I support him 100%. Something in this country needs to change and that doesn't mean that myself or this man are disrespecting the military, it's insulting that anyone would draw that conclusion. Especially because isn't 'freedom of speech' one of the things that the military are fighting for?
