So, this is "free speech" in West Hollywood, California?

Now, I am all for freedom of speech, but who else believes that if this were a scene depicting Barack Obama and Joe Biden that the owners of this home would have been forced to remove it immediately? I mean, can you even IMAGINE how the democrats and the liberal media would react to something like that?

I saw that on the news this morning and thought the exact same thing. The liberal media would have said it was a racist thing had it been done on Obama! How ridiculous and even more so that it wasn't forced to come down. I am sick of the liberal media. I don't watch or listen any longer. I only watch Foxnews when I watch which is rare these days.

The homeowner would have been arrested if there was a black mannequin hanging from that noose. That is totally wrong.

truly absurd.

thank you, by the way, for all the prayers on our behalf. Walker did have a much better day today!

It's disgusting. Just so you know, not all of us Californians are liberals. Some of the best counties here are conservative.

This woman is a mother to young children! Just for that alone, should they take this down.

This country is getting scary.

Forgot to say I found your blog through CFHusband and I LOVE the picture on your blog of the naked baby riding the little bike. : )

Yeah. You are exactly right. It would NEVER be like that if it had been the other ticket on the porch.
