or is this one of those things where you guys keep repeating about how much you're victimized, trying for it loudly enough to drown out people who are calling you on your b.s. ?

Oh wait, I can hear it now, this is just a lone wolf apologist respectable Trump haters would never sign up for anything like that. Except they did. Instead of the crude language, nonsensical claims and childish insults they try to wrap the despicable, threatening image in the Constitution bravely appointing themselves as defenders of freedom.

Iíve seen all manner of social media outrage in the past 24 hours, and the three main contentions are that this is hate speech, itís criminal, or itís treasonous. The common factor that the armchair warriors fail to realize is that all three of those categories demand that the government step in and act to curtail her vile expression.
Letís think about that for a reasonable second.
Do you really want the government to start telling you that you canít mock or speak out against a U.S. president? I donít. That would close pretty much every social media page or opinion piece ever, including mine, and that line of thinking would eventually foreclose any commentary against the government and its elected officials. Once we surrender an inch of our freedoms to government regulation and infringement, weíre not getting it back.

Got it? Any of us has the right to show the mock beheading of the sitting President of the US because if we reject the call for violence against the duly elected President, we are inviting the government to censor all political speech forever.:rolls

Imagine that.
AZRWinger misrepresents somebody's opinion... :rolls

The first portion of the youtube video clearly demonstrates the pundit understand Griffin did wrong.
Inexcusably so. :yes

So knock off the dumb b.s. that there were any "excuses" made. :rolls

What's going on is the pundit (and I agree with him) is recognizing many on the right are going whole-hog crazy on this. Proclaiming all sorts of grievous pretenses of injury and consequences which are patently absurd. Proclaiming illegal actions when it's not illegal.

While Griffin DID DO WRONG,
many on the right are also doing wrong in their response on the issue... :yes

Simple question for you AZRWinger, which is why I know you'll cower from it...
Do you think what Kathy Griffin did is or should be ILLEGAL?
If you think "No", then you agree with the article.
If you think "Yes", then the article's message is truly for you...

Quoting the article:
As vile as Griffin’s photograph is, and I agree with the president’s response that she should be ashamed, she unquestionably has the right to make a fool of herself in this manner. And she should have that right. As disgusted as you and I can and should be, the solution is not more government intervention.
The solution is for the market to take care of itself, and for you and I to refuse to monetarily contribute to Griffin’s career or those who support her. We learned this lesson with the recent firing of Bill O’Reilly from Fox News. Media in any form —especially entertainment — is a business, and once the sponsor dollars leave, the celebrity’s fame soon wanes and their platform diminishes.
What Griffin did was wrong. THE TIME ARTICLE AGREES.
The free market dealing with it without government intervention should be something the right can agree to.
(If you can divorce yourself from hysterical hyperbole for long enough to admit it...)

The picture of Kathy Griffin holding up the mock, bloody, severed head of President Donald Trump
was really a video done to send in to ISIS
with her application for employment with them

Kathy Griffin Thinks Comedy Should Go All Out on ‘President Piece of ****’ Donald Trump

By Shira Levine

It’s a question a lot of comedians are asking themselves lately: What should comedy look like during the Trump presidency? “Now more than ever we must absolutely go for all the absurdities,” Kathy Griffin told Vulture at the Equality Now Gala Tuesday night. For me, that’s Trump and all things Trump. It’s not about trying to be an equal-opportunity offender anymore because Hillary got such a beat down. It’s his turn. So I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron. I’m going to get in ahead of the game.”

So, of course, Griffin supported Rosie O’Donnell when she tweeted a video asking if Barron Trump, 10-year-old son of Donald and Melania, was on the autism spectrum. “After the beat down he gave her, she can say whatever she wants to say to that piece of ****,” Griffin said before correcting herself. “Oh, that’s President Piece of ****.”

This makes it even worse.

Did you even notice the title of the video? The initial image. Yes, the fool mouths the obligatory "it's wrong" before launching into an obscene defense of a public personality mugging for the camera with a bloodied severed head replica of our President's head. According to the image depicting our President beheaded in a manner favored by ISIS, obviously meant to enhance the commedian's career, it's the people that object to a mere "Halloween ornament." Nearly 5 months away from Halloween but that's an excuse.:rolls

The article in Time was in response to the claim Democrats condemn the beheading stunt. Just like the video the article makes the obligatory condemnation before launching into a bizarre rationalization for leaving the comedian to the "free market" lest the government interfere with her sacred right to threaten the life of our POTUS. Appointing the free market to the role of law enforcement is just another means of excusing the comedian because, well "everyone" hates Trump too. :eek

The defense that the commedian's has the absolute right to make a fool of herself under the Constitution so therefore no "government action" ought to be forthcoming shows the utter ends justify the means corruption of the Trump hate crowd. Clearly the violent image in the photo was deliberately fabricated for wide spread public consumption. It is shocking that a mock beheading of our President would be considered legitimate humor subject to the same protections as an off hand remark at a private party.:eek

In case I haven't been literal enough for you in responding to the question you were so confident I would avoid, the secret service ought to investigate what is clearly an illegal act, followed by prosecution if the investigation shows it is warranted. The depravity of suggesting a criminal investigation into a threat to the President's life is "government interference" shows the derangement afflicting the Trump hate crowd. But don't worry, as former FBI Director James Comey showed with Hillary's illegal server and a six year long conspiracy to conceal it, criminal activity is cancelled out if the investigator turned prosecutor can find an excuse.;)
