And decided if I had a choice between Kansas City. And the royal royals. In London I'm gonna inject the royal and London. Went away they named the new baby princess Charlotte among other things that I think is going to be nine other names but it thinks is going to be known. As princess Charlotte. Like it. So in line of succession now and I'm talking strictly. In terms of a queen sitting on the throne OK you got Queen Elizabeth up there right now. Then you got prints they Charlotte and then surprisingly Bruce Jenner. We come back continue our conversation about the and it is and in. Garland Texas and get a lot of sex and the question justice and trees in the home is a hearing on the radio say in this. Would you post a cartoon depicting the Prophet Mohammed doing god knows one to a halt would be I guess the most offensive thing you can do. In which you put your name on it letter but you know who you world where he lived in the sense of freedom. I'm an absolutist when it comes that the First Amendment freedoms in this country I'm not saying you shouldn't do it I'm asking you if you look. I personally wouldn't do that and have problems in the senate enough people hate me now in my own family so I certainly wouldn't look for more trouble. And in this city I think we got enough trouble I don't think we need more but would you want that event held here. Once you go into it. And would you draw a cartoon. And put your name on I'll talk about theory here I wanna ask you it to six a 1870. Would you do any of those things 713 Tommy Tucker. And a bag and a that a few. 77 teens kind of warned. Highs around 8220%. Chance for showers but in the afternoon and evening when the breeze comes up and organized not too hot yet. Eyes are on 84 tomorrow and then on. Thursday highs around 86 Friday 86 with a 10% chance for showers who were kind of slowly getting into our. Summer pattern right now it's seventy degrees I got a lot of text heroes texting and about the event in Garland and cartoons about the Prophet Mohammed and making fun of the Prophet Mohammed if you feel. Strongly enough about your constitutional protections so when I'm asking you is do you want somebody else do you protect and for yet or are you gonna do it. And if you if you do I'd love for yet. Did draw a cartoon then call in and give us your name and address and where you can find it where he can find a cartoon. But today I think it's easy to be a text hero. But not to call in and actually file out on actually follow through on it. And if you if you will undertake a standing your text hero call it a letter buddy list and know that you are not. A scared like Ricky Jackson said if you're scared say your scared. And they you know we're trying to have a serious conversation here it says draw the cartoon incited sponsored by the entire Atlanta Falcons organization. You know. Berrian but to listen to morning aren't. The W well. I just want to edit and strongly enough about your I would not. Coach. Quote in an element that. I am I mean we stunningly enough the boat about eating the Prophet Mohammed about 88 and up ma to work. People caught in the it. The only way a single black. Actually not because. A talk about practically speak or would you want an event here would you go in would you draw since it is you're right if you set care enough about that. Would you draw I'd just you know and you sign your name to. Yes I would in the mine mine when sentenced. Outlook how reasons out out for them. Expression of Britain and well what Kirk is looked upon them and now even with an apple. We. Go to dictate. The rights to terror as a war and it would be on the pitch in that we operated between. We will we will. Increase local being. It was. I guess you know they are getting your name and address right now and phone number on a year. I'm not going to be Monday morning I. Think there's. An apple did mama. And in the. Point is married that I make and if you do a cartoon not only is the world's gonna know your name. A world that wants to kill you is going to know your name so you're saying and ruled that you're gonna do that but yet you don't want listeners to. Don't know. It's. Asian model model that they might be able drug cartel mom at all that's gonna come lord. It was beaten and immediately. In. Sanaa who who might not be accurate. You do with. His aunt. So locally not nor what I draw a cartoon about the Prophet Mohammed because not only you're gonna have nut jobs come and try to rob yet. You get nut jobs come and and try to kill you because you cartoon. And yet it. And it is discretion is the better part of valley I blew liberating in fear you when he give me your name on a radio. Google and their right mind is gonna draw but their right mind Barry is gonna draw about cartoon about mom it. And Andreas didn't put owning its list. From all radical Muslims and I'm trying to give yards and the question is it's it's easy in the area to say I'd do this. But damn when it comes on and as miners given your name and address on a radio won't do that. Well it is. Considered him you know it. A bit political. Or simple right well. And out and play so well on a well. It. Means to people and pieces. On the without unity day ticket. We. Appeared we. I just a clear concept as a dead at a traffic Barry you're telling me that. To defend your freedom of speech you would draw a cartoon about the Prophet Mohammed and risk having it go. Viral on the Internet. Having getting on the hit list of the entire radical Muslim community. But yet you won't give me your name I'm just asking you won't give me your name and address over the air because you're afraid and nut job or do you dome right. It. Hi there I'm glad you Kolb and his obvious wonder and if that is speaking out of both sides you mouth and burial IKEA. Give yelled due respect on that. But I think that's a good example if you if you won't need me give me when I ask you your name and address our year address and telephone number over the air. Because you're afraid and not just what kind of nut jobs do you think you're gonna have after you if you do this cartoon. On massed in seventh when he Tutan look at Debbie WL traffic. Tommy Tucker inevitably go talking about the event in Garland Texas and I'm asking you if you if you defend. Free speech would you do that in and I guess the bottom line is there's people from outside of Garland did they bring trouble Garland Garland didn't need. And in Panama a a Muslim. You show woody college gathering Nam rallied. At that same venue where this Garland taxes thing did about the cartoons. And I think at some point they praised. An unindicted co considered on the World Trade Center bombings the original ones. And you know. I think the difference is adamant trying to insult anybody denouncing Americans. Are still on cold raven knots like radical Muslim czar. And appoint his tee and I got a lot of text heroes and a man trying to make funny you but if if you're well on the go that far to protect speech that he is it grew risk. Live in with your life on a swivel the rest a year. The rescue time. Worried that somebody's gonna break in your house like. That like happened with that Swedish cartoonist with an axe trying to kill everybody there. And get a taxi comes from scissors a rifleman and US MC bring them on. And get their but the thing you got to realizes unlike the heroes in World War II it is not where you're on one side there on any other data come in and slit your throat while you sleep. And if you will and a tip gives that opt in and lives that way to express your freedom I'm all for that if you will when they do it but I think. If like Barry you won't even give your name and address on the air because you're afraid and not I think it's a little disingenuous as say. He dog on ride for freedom my drawn out cartoon of of the profit making fun of him Mohammed and and post it where by deacons Amy. 'cause then you're dealing with a lot of nut job Sperry said he wouldn't give his address on here because of issues or because of a lot of not jobs here and it that would common hurting. Well I think you talk about that to the nth degree when you talk about radical Muslims. And at the bottom line is would you draw cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed making fun of him just to. Prove that there's free speech in this country would you want an event like that here. And would you go to. Would you bring your family to. Because they knew there's be trouble that's what it'll heavy security which thankfully worked. But here from UT six one it's happening again I got enough problems I don't need more so I wouldn't do it and another text comes and I think it's pretty interest thing. And it says okay if you believe in free speech. Then. At this manner than it that prompted all this and would you support a rally where people got together and everybody took turns coming on stage to burn the American flag. Freedoms speech he'd tell me 260170. Right now time for double WL first news for that would go to day badly. David phone lines are jammed about freedom of speech would you draw the line in the sand when it comes to Europe protecting the freedom of speech is. In his country as far as. Having a cartoon contest depicting Mohammed and a and and a bad way would you sign your name to a mood to risk and put on a hit list. Of radical Muslims. And when it comes to lose the event and a lot of people's and they would supported via text would you go would you want it here you got it sounds like your most asking someone to play Russian roulette that it may be yelling fire in a crowded theater is Oliver Wendell man homes that back in 1919 certain circumstances free speech has been limited. Most stringent protection of free speech would not protect the man in falsely shouting fire in a theater. And causing a panic. I don't think it's the same as shouting fire in a crowded theater I think yet the right to do it but what you. That's my question I would not bomb and see who I'm trying to go when he ordered a body culled Sean and bearing in a show on your indebted to be well good morning. You. That. Such. It is great. Chew them out speech in his old. Is. It should. Do. So so. So. He. Used so you. Should. Jail read them. Up to a certain only. Until you and so we took a lot of others that you are all. The saudis pitcher or. Two columns or to somebody so. And is it like John. Is right peppers and cute you can Jimmie and their mother absolutely not. But or do not write. Some each. Also. Killed. In law. Like I guess what I miss you news you can as somebody did do your. Day a year dying for and I just have to wonder if you. If you really do support Sam would you support them to the point of drawn a cartoon. Or go one of the event or would you want it here I wouldn't want it here they had. This first up I don't think it's appropriate at a school and secondly if they had. At a public facilities. Maybe somebody wanted to have a pro Muslim rally and just like in Garland Texas they. Casino this and inflicted on innocent and they brought in. As speaker in a glorified. Terrorists it was not unindicted co conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing. What I wanna responses that absolutely what I wanted to hear I don't know brought in by outsiders maybe I'd rather they do it there I'm conflicted. You tell me what you think at 260187.

He had lied to it's a very slippery slope that we are on to pursue a new policies Jason you're under the W good morning. Good morning atomic thank you take in my column a couple of things to say my husband big. Surely it in the kitchen and currency makes it saying that he'd be offensive because if you want to get. Argue me we've missed something in water. An old child to expression if you did. Treatment each upper market the way or the other thing that they that I am much. And one of the things that are on the knee injury and a lot of things that she would not yet do is the understand the culture is no longer going to. Seattle louder in all honesty either wasn't TV when the Prophet Mohammed Awad was right now that line is on Andy's advice to real. Dated and he's. But don't read that we should be now days. And things on the down. Our program at educate people about the culture about other religions and I'll ultimately in other religions brought to the table. You know we can all get along that we want we know each other and understand each other culture right now we going on height. Oh with the next expo was next on. Those players you know and that's what we're working on vs our we're educated when it comes out today. We don't know about religion should. So calm didn't lock on resurgent stock on certain things and only when. Oh but it do watch every I watch every show soon on TV about gold mining for whatever reason that's. The Kindle. Someone. On things we just got to be more educated and more understanding of other cultures find out what's going on and so that it is radical. Common radical and that when he got out you moron good. It I mean cheats and radical that it's got a bit they are ignorant now. So it's an arm ignorant and it's a variety bet it. Once we get into understanding and meeting and knowing the true it would get along much better and will be doing right now on the bank. Well what weights there you're an American so if in signed an intelligent woman if people want to get together if they wanna have an exhibit of cartoons making fun of the prophet. Morals aside in terms of freedom of speech do you think they have the right to do that. They they have the right to do that but are the consequences dot. Look at that little kid I don't think there could be acknowledged that the need. I like kindergarten you know and pitches. Whatever the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus saint it's true. And though it is not true. Got to thank you sue and I don't want a great deal of nightly news three words or be ice cold gold. Now they're looking forward and in Iceland which is pretty fast. I get time for medical. It would traffic let's say one more call all right to Christina in recent hi Christina yearned evidently I don't. Agree wholeheartedly. The last caller I urged. In this country there is a lack of understanding. Our. Religious diversity. And we claim to be excellent milk and pat but we're judged not accepting and understanding that. With and the problem. Community there are. Not there like it though it could go after ilk. So the people who will get that cartoon on. Like it was kind of like her cat by elite uber hot flat out and take it that are that are. They'll Wear that you know. And instant that came on the state level. But what they've done it morally let me let me clear this up I don't think they burn the flag at the rally did things. All I know is that they had a guest speaker. ORR. Glorify god and just as skinned about some different issues here they. They had a speaker I think they glorified. An unindicted co conspirator in the first World Trade Center bombing in a garage. Okay and tell me it's still it's still a little tit for tat child. Where did what they've done that you know it's definitely something. The mainstream America will not beat out. And do how ever to take it true that religious level and make fine. You know a religious leader out in the community. Go to kind of separate the company of America you know we claim that we are and the street. You're not really impact street say say that flatly say. No I would not do that how Matt Girard depict Mohammed because it's their freedom is not read. Read it but this is definitely now. Thank you Christina appreciate the call it's whatever but he thinks about it at T six 187753. Time now for them W ultra. I Tommy target 758 talking about the events and Garland Texas and publishing. A picture out cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed would you do it because and I think it's easy to be a drugstore cowboy and say damn won't do that now. Angle and anybody stop me from doing that is about. American freedom not dumb if you Dylan I get a text and no time for someone with as weak characters mister Tucker I am sad for him. Well I have your phone number here the Texan and I'm gonna give it out it's 50490. Wait. None I can do enough that you freaked out when I start to say that now if you don't want her body calling you Weldon why in the world if you are sincere in your beliefs. Would you draw the line at freedom by publishing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. And if you know willingly giving number out on the air than I think and make you hypocrite appreciate the text you call me week. We'll see the truth is Hussein back under the W well.
