What you're just on high after that interview aren't you get -- Siena.
-- thank you.
But we'll get to that in -- Willie.
I was -- haggling junior first look at what's -- that I'm still completely compared -- -- Netanyahu.
It's just sickens me right it doesn't it should my -- you don't know why but.
Greg -- Hank wasn't actually comparing Obama to Hitler which I agree with in his original analogy but his five.
Follow up comments seemed to indicate that that's kind of what He wants to be -- yeah.
-- -- the grabbing for something out there that if He doesn't like and putting it next to this thing doesn't yet He kind of political -- yes rule number one.
Don't say Hitler gap that's it that's all it's only rule you know that -- Replace it with -- -- Six hints.
-- you -- ESPN shouldn't have done what they did drop the song but don't they need to protect their brand.
I don't think we're just talk about this it's a 22 song -- that out for our telecasts I think it would have been better off to move away from it.
-- -- too much attention to do they have the right yes but also you have a right to make mistakes can be stupid.
You prove that at.
And could not be and not be you know punish him -- blob right and Patterson -- I'm right.
No I think we're seeing evidence of why you you'll never ever run a company.
Can I get red.
-- -- -- Also He -- Williams metaphor was wrong yeah that's me because it was an analogy it is.
-- -- -- -- -- It's just getting started -- -- -- the First Amendment exists exactly for this kind of thing -- the First Amendment doesn't exist you can say things without consequences.
-- with with what I said them.
That was what I meant anyway that -- -- First Amendment issue but I had the principle of free speech and the reason why the charts and in this.
Mean because people are supposed to have to be more tolerant.
Of controversial speech it doesn't exist so that you can.
And only tolerate politically current.
Being out the first -- -- that you Hank Williams doesn't go to jail for saying what Clinton and I I.
But that's but it's -- different from people not liking what He said and three speech having consequences of the under the government's not putting him in -- that's our -- not actually at First Amendment issue but right principle behind the laws so people like tolerant of speech that they do not let you know it's not -- -- the first but I had nothing do with people tolerating speech in any sense aren't -- yeah I mean I hear it -- -- -- someone in jail for saying -- right they don't.
-- people can choose not to tolerate certain speech and companies can say.
You can say what you want but you're not part of our company He -- anymore -- -- Supreme Court decision that uses the phrases the phraseology.
Tolerance speech within the context of an analysis of the First Amendment.
And I know that as I'm an attorney right you personally -- an attorney you're comedian and you know not a good one place.
That's the thing that Arab -- -- yesterday if you you staying.
They have pretty much about it.
The -- to get the note that the I think the ice and there -- alternate means.
I was not arguing that this is the First Amendment issue I realize he's not going to jail and being fired by private company I understand the legality of the beyond -- -- this thing.
The existence of the First Amendment -- that our country values.
Tolerating speech whether we like it or not.
And I think that that principles and continue on and those black sorry but that does not happen not deciding when -- -- second film wanted anything to offend somebody else who they are fired -- Writely.
There's is all black and white now.
Ironically the thing that Hank Williams junior was sort of against -- the discussion of differences.
Right which which as you know -- and yet the irony you know is locked on amber that's exactly right.
He was against them playing golf together and I've I think while everybody's getting around about job that's the and we are gonna literally -- no -- -- I had gotten.
What I was playing well anyway China may -- to why did my thing my save me He.
I think about quarters cents an advertising they say anything I can properly analyze what He meant by any gonna always -- you don't in the January 10 did you get -- you might I say Obama.
And but my saying it was like Hitler and not Netanyahu sitting down when you're saying when you've got you guys who -- but.
The people who shouldn't be sitting together sitting together and talking that's what He said but analysts thought it was ES can't reinforce that very stupid thing He was saying which is that people who are different shouldn't -- and shouldn't discuss another yeah.
Let's just among people have gone -- grave if Jamie please -- If Ronald McDonald was going around calling Obama Hitler I think McDonald's would have you ever did the fire.
-- -- Donald C is the -- of the brand low low oil -- guys you guys behind the god would not real.
I'm sorry -- you'll -- -- -- -- -- -- Every national industry conversation but you kill any chance of that.
Part of what I thought was wrong but no expect core -- is no part of what -- it was interest it.
By the campus.
-- -- -- Back that didn't -- what what Diane what you and -- are saying is the exact same excuse that we used by The Dixie Chicks when they said something bad about President Bush and and near record sales took a nosedive.
-- -- plant outside right.
Everyone -- a -- that I -- they started the started making it a half they started making it a free speech issue which it's not they had the right to see what they said Hank Williams junior had every right to see what He said yes.
But that doesn't mean there aren't consequence.
But I can I can still think that it's stupid on yes against parts makes such a big deal out of this inspired guy.
-- saying something in an interview it has nothing to do with the job and He does the company.
-- the -- not to actually shades of gray tie.
Now that he's pol spewing cliches you can we move on but yes you see a sign that we've run out of gas -- the end of the day.
What if it is yes that's sans Van Jones has progressives -- you market tea parties.
Danny -- it's hard to drum up an opposition movement when you're in power the but I don't think for example like the people who are occupying Wall Street think they're in power.
While the Wall Street movement is against the people on Wall Street.
Van Jones is trying to drum up support for a political movement and right now the Democrats aren't -- -- and judges are talking about drumming up Democrats he's talking about doing sort of what the tea parties doing like the sort of these rallying behind Obama.
I've started -- was talking a year and knowingly.
Consent adaptors that you -- you -- about rallying behind Obama.
No I don't I don't think he's talking necessarily Barack Obama I think -- whole point was that.
That the mistake the progressives made what they put all their eggs in one basket with Obama and they have to realize that the movement needs to be bigger than that sort this in a similar way what you're saying is that the Tea Party.
Tied to one particular person.
They left -- based on issues.
Now the Tea Party and they got there a particular person you're right but again.
So what they're trying to do is change the policies that are being passed his country right now -- -- policies that are in the place in this country -- the left -- -- the party about.
-- you said the problem is it Democrats aren't unified so they can never be like the tea parties and again you're an idiot did you I don't know if you didn't listen to the story behind this and it just lets you didn't read the story.
That was Van Jones whole point that the Democrats are unified and -- saying they need to be unified and that that's what they need to work on that was his.
I was saying that they eBay it's an impossibility.
That there are too many major forces that -- too diverse.
They can never come together -- -- conservatives and liberals have one thing in common conservatives hate liberals and liberals hate liberals okay.
And so it can't be done I understood the point.
Now being -- and I didn't I -- -- -- at some point.
I just can't happen his particular case and hot and by the way out -- movement when is the first time you mentioned a three year two years later that that ever heard of it.
He says it's got a single attraction of Tea Party like no I just heard of it two years later He has zero track.
-- -- a good point thank you.
-- -- -- -- -- Greg and speaking about how liberals has were exploding after came on the Florida -- police said it was like microwave popcorn one every two minutes.
That's the rule.
-- wondering what are you know what's it's like one every twenty seconds when you are popping popcorn when it's ready yet thousands -- because after him.
Also I love and -- city had a few people on the short list for vice president and you refuse to get sucked in and ask him who they work.
Yeah you know I'm Natalie I think -- -- happy.
Clearly what He wanted you to do yeah I -- -- little.
I don't play those games but you know that's what those other guys that you let those other guys get the story to a -- I can't yeah yeah yeah I'm I'm -- -- by the way I did break some stories are rod broke some information.
You're not something I broke something -- the table and I did my eyes.
