DISCUSSION

I hope the trial involves testimony from the white farmer she referred to in the video. He and his family readily defended her when the story first hit as she helped save their farm and they were friendly for a number of years.

Mr. Breitbart disrespects his country and his fellow citizens when he abuses the definition of such a valuable and hard-won right as the First Amendment. It is the act of a coward to purposefully lie then expect his assumed "right" to do so should trump another's right to be protected from such speech.
