Kathy Griffin should know that when you speak out in wild ways, there will be backlash. So stop whining Ms. Griffin
Kathy Griffin and civil-rights lawyer Lisa Bloom came for Donald Trump Friday.
“I’m not afraid of Trump,” the 56-year-old comedian said. “He’s a bully. I’ve dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole career.”
At a press conference, Griffin and Bloom addressed what they both view as a disproportionate response by the president and his family after she posed with a fake, severed Trump head for photographer Tyler Shields.
So she got herself a civil rights attorney and is crying like a little, well, you know? I suppose in Griffin’s world, she is allowed to pose with a fake severed head of the president, but he, or his family, are not allowed to hurt her feelings? Here is her bottom feeding attorney’s absurd take
The attorney continued, “The Supreme Court has ruled in a series of longstanding, bedrock cases that political satire is protected. The government cannot retaliate against citizens for it. That’s an important legal right that is now under attack, as journalists, networks and artists fear retribution from Trump and his administration. He is hoping for a chilling effect on artists like Kathy.”
The problem with that is that the government is not seeking retribution against Griffin. CNN fired her, but CNN is not the government. But, of course facts do not matter. The tactic here is to put as much emotionalistic rhetoric out there to make Griffin the victim.
Griffin is defending herself because, “if you don’t stand up, you get run over. What is happening to me has never happened in the history of this great country. A sitting president of the United States, his grown children and the first lady are personally, I feel, are trying to ruin my life forever.”
So, no one has ever, in the history of America, gotten backlash for comments they made? Good grief! The fact is this another tactic of the Left. They launch nasty verbal attacks, lie, smear, and of course bring out the lynch mob mentality for anyone that dares disagree, or defends their self. But when someone on the left gets some pushback? Then they cry about their freedom of speech being trampled.
To be clear no one is seeking to shut Kathy Griffin up. She pulled a publicity stunt, and offended many people, which is her right. But now she needs to stop whining and realize people who disagree with her also have freedom of expression and speech.
