Meryl Streep caused quite a stir with her Golden Globes Cecile B DeMille award acceptance speech.
I’ve got to admit that these politically driven acceptance speeches by the left are becoming a bit nauseating. However, the reason I’m writing this post isn’t because of Streep’s speech but because of the reaction by the right. And let me set the record straight, I’m not pleased.
After her speech all I saw and heard on social media was that Hollywood should stick to acting and that Meryl Streep was wrong for making her speech.
She wasn’t wrong. She was courageous.
We conservatives better learn from our liberal counterparts who can’t tolerate free speech before we find ourselves electing Joe Biden in four years…dry heave.
Instead of vilifying Streep for her comments, conservatives – of all people, should applaud here exercise of the First Amendment because that’s who we are.
We’re not the nazi left liberal hoard who attacks people for presenting their ideas and beliefs in the public square. At least that’s not who we are supposed to be.
So to all conservatives, the next time a liberal like Meryl Streep says something that is maddening, misinformed and just down right dumb, don’t attack them but admire them and do everything in your power to protect them and their right to do so.
Because in America their right is also your right.
On a related topic we in America can no longer be afraid of ideas and beliefs. We must value them, argue them, fight for them and pass them on to our children.
