During her Saturday night show on Fox News, Judge Jeanine Pirro issued a chilling warning to those instigating violence against Donald Trump’s protesters, and absolutely slammed “Little Marco” Rubio.
“Since when if you verbally lean right are you responsible for the left’s physical reaction?” pondered Pirro.
“Since when if you state an opinion are you responsible for someone’s reaction?” she asked. “Since when do you have the right to interrupt my First Amendment right to listen to a candidate for the highest office in the land?”
“This is America, not the Soviet Union,” said Judge Jeanine. “This is America. You cannot prevent me from speaking or listening. You cannot censor speech. Free speech is guaranteed.”
“It’s why our Founding Fathers made it the very first amendment to the law of the land,” said Pirro. “It’s what distinguishes us from communist countries and totalitarian regimes. It’s why people risked their lives to come here.”
“Your free speech, if it differs from mine, doesn’t mean that you’re right and I’m wrong, and therefore I must be silenced,” continued Pirro. “But that is exactly what the left tried to do in Chicago last night, and again moments ago in Kansas City to more than 25,000 who came to hear Donald Trump.”
Pirro asserted that everyone has the right to dissent, but argued that there’s a proper way to do so – violence isn’t the proper way.
“Words do not justify violence,” Pirro said. “You cannot defend assault by arguing verbal provocation, otherwise every man who battered a woman would say he was justified because she, ‘mouthed off.’”
After playing a quote from “Little Marco” Rubio, Jeanine argued that the only place words have consequences are under Sharia law, where Islamist fascists use threats, intimidation, and violence to police what people say.
“By the way, Marco, didn’t you say your parents came from Cuba to avoid an oppressive regime?” asked Pirro. “Stop being so small, Marco.”
“This is America, you cannot stop us and you cannot silence us,” warned Pirro. “Beware the sleeping giant – the silent majority of us.”
“We will not be silenced,” she concluded.
Bravo, Jeanine. Bravo.
