Sec State Kerry: You Have A Right To Be Stupid

At first, I was ready to criticize Kerry for this, but, he is kinda correct

(Reuters) “As a country, as a society, we live and breathe the idea of religious freedom and religious tolerance, whatever the religion, and political freedom and political tolerance, whatever the point of view,” Kerry told the students in Berlin, the second stop on his inaugural trip as secretary of state.

“People have sometimes wondered about why our Supreme Court allows one group or another to march in a parade even though it’s the most provocative thing in the world and they carry signs that are an insult to one group or another,” he added.

“The reason is, that’s freedom, freedom of speech. In America you have a right to be stupid – if you want to be,” he said, prompting laughter. “And you have a right to be disconnected to somebody else if you want to be.

“And we tolerate it. We somehow make it through that. Now, I think that’s a virtue. I think that’s something worth fighting for,” he added. “The important thing is to have the tolerance to say, you know, you can have a different point of view.”

It’s put inarticulately, stupidly, if you will, but, he is right, you do have the right to be stupid. We have to wonder just in what context he meant this, such as people daring to be religious and/or speak their minds. Unfortunately, we have quite a few stupid people who voted for Obama.
