Also want to welcome.
If -- bank could afford they -- their -- run Williams.
Libertarian running for the fourth district in Mississippi.
Ron thank you coming on the program that was detail his -- district right.
-- stabilize I was the currency comment the Republican in your challenging him in this upcoming racecar and now now -- -- this chick -- controversy.
You know a few mayors have said simply that I don't agree with.
Even though I'm a far left liberal sir -- I think these mayors -- wrong.
To suggest that -- -- these businesses should not settle in their communities because I think the marketplace to decide in.
You know what they good tolerant liberals should be open to all comers -- think -- -- right.
Well that's absolutely absolutely Alan Lipman probably I believe in free speech and and would you sum up a letter in the article that road and discussed the oracle would that would the newspaper of the day they won't -- credited and we discuss some of the purpose that we changes.
Don't candidates that people are reading into what they want retreat into that -- I'm a firm believer protecting free speech at at and -- he has.
These layers basically stated that they were going to use their office to try to put -- to scour his opportunity.
Right so much as I find his -- reprehensible I don't think the government to do that you -- -- agree with his -- but does -- matter whether we -- agree or disagree but here's here's the issue you know that you said.
These two mayors -- -- -- nominee -- in Boston and now Rahm Emanuel in Chicago need to be introduced to the Second Amendment AS AP.
And I think he went on to say you should have said.
The word introduced we thought was a misnomer right that was not the right word.
Positive you -- were reminded of.
Below -- why bring up the Second Amendment what what what are you trying to say that they should be aware that.
What people can get guns and take over the government not quite -- committed by the.
I'm not at all -- Second Amendment it is the Second Amendment is the part of the constitution bill writes.
That that is the -- it's the drama it's like the the climax.
Of how important.
Right -- why bring up guns.
-- that's what secular and what is that I have brought what does that have to do with disagreeing.
With some mayors why would you then bring up.
No no no it has nothing to do with disagreeing with the mayors is not about disagreeing with the mayor's.
Alan it's it's I'm assuming -- legal -- moment from New York walking off as right now but I don't like what she says a bit -- -- would you be okay with that.
Well no but.
A year but no -- -- total war but why bring up guns.
Reaction to what extent would you just -- right.
Could there I would -- -- get it done right away don't even know what put -- there where we have courts and -- publicize our -- can be politically influenced.
My point is that -- the purpose of the second and at a perfect example of that.
The folks in Syria would love to have a Second Amendment.
Club I don't and now you're comparing.
Some mayors who said some things the -- and I'd like and maybe even taking legislative action which I don't think they should do.
And the response to that should be to remind -- we have the right to have guns.
The response of action is to remind government authorities that government officials at the ultimate authority -- with the people.
And it ended up outside an -- that don't truthfully not State's constitution correct.
I just seems like an overreaction bring up the but he went on to say the correct response to these mayors.
Would be to send troops or whatever to remove these men from office by whatever means is necessary.
That's what you said in that letter.
If you think about -- and the end of the historical precedent for that it if you remember.
Thinking sixties how few more -- in -- -- in the 1960s.
-- Mississippi in this kind of embarrassing that we even went that way our state but we be at.
There are -- -- folks are state -- it.
There was some minorities who were going to routine and make universities don't -- -- over Tuscaloosa Alabama.
And local government was denying these people -- civil rights.
That -- -- not want to let them attend these schools the federal government -- troops.
To open would open a long ways and and their go their function was to remove any obstacles.
That -- these young men and women from.
Exercising -- civil rights so it is not it is not unprecedented that the federal government has sent troops to -- in someone's civil rights.
Now you really don't know what you say the correct response to these mayors weather's Menino -- -- Emmanuel.
Where even the mayor Washington DC -- think said the same thing would be to send in troops.
Or what ever to remove these men from office.
By whatever means necessary you saying that these mayors should be removed from office space so what they sent.
What I'm saying is serious.
Not based on what they say it strip -- follow that they would follow through with what they say it basically a bank that okay.
Chick -- you can't have anymore business licenses we're gonna -- -- -- because of what you say that we disagree what you say.
What has violated those young people were denied that the civil rights to go to school.
The federal -- the constitutional right.
That restaurant is being denied his constitutional.
-- you would want the troops to come in and physically remove these mayors -- office.
I would say the -- privacy and civil itself now probably would never content but but our country has.
The federal government has sent troops to local areas to defend the civil rights do you think Rahm Emmanuel I don't -- -- -- probably pretty decent -- you know -- -- it takes a -- to -- in public service -- message from -- little.
-- into a book you'd think coming from Chicago.
That Rahm Emanuel will understand of the Yankees.
Of -- -- not taking lightly civil.
-- was put the struggled at Chicago.
-- Are you comparing the act of a mayor which hasn't happened by the way to stop a business from the establishing by the way they're not doing that.
But let's say they were to do that would that be analogous.
To stopping -- student from attending the University of Mississippi like James Meredith.
And it was the -- you're referring to earlier is that the same exact thing that dream it would require the National Guard to come in and busily removing mayor from office.
Al only that the decision the civil rights a wonderful boost in the civil rights of -- I mean little slippery slope where he what.
That this violation of the bill of rights to the jags but this operation is not okay what -- -- -- -- -- -- -- was given the arbitrary.
Ability to make that to see it.
Well in some cases we have elections if you don't like what the mayor does we have a two week course -- that which is called a primary or an election.
-- like that you're in right now because you may not like.
The people in office in your district that's were -- running in the fourth district in Mississippi.
That's why we have elections this country we don't physically remove somebody from office every time they say or do something we don't agree with.
So you're saying that instead of sending troops led gains Meredith -- -- -- yes we should have just waited until the next election cycle.
I'm not to argument old -- and I don't read James Meredith.
Talking about civil rights that's what we're talking would opt out and articulate not so much against -- soldiers were not -- -- we're talking about.
Government authority saying no you cannot exercise your civil rights because I disagree with -- are you telling me Alan Colmes.
That didn't matter that should not go out here over here until after we had an election and edit and got him elected official that was okay it was is that.
Surely you know.
-- say now what I'm saying is I don't think Rahm Emmanuel making a statement that chick filet is not welcome here.
Is the same thing as standing and then in a doorway.
And stopping James Meredith from entering the University of Mississippi at all Emanuel was doing was giving an opinion same thing would mean inning Menino in Boston.
You wouldn't remove somebody for their free speech rights because they said.
Those check for latest represent the values in my city that's no reason this and then the troops.
Absolutely what would be a reason to demand potential civil rights would be if they acted on their statement that they were gonna block the -- does does your props.
From functioning of pursuing an economic endeavors in Chicago -- think it's it stake if they acted on those comments.
Then that will be an attack on free speech.
Absolutely absolutely out my point -- They did not make those statements.
As private citizen that I respect their right to free speech to limit the fact they can -- -- more talk about what I'm not just part him before right to do that.
-- the bottom of the them.
-- -- right to do it.
That's -- pretty into the slippery -- look around the world -- Look at look at nations where where people can exercise out preaching to -- we used to play our reading news stories -- -- -- -- editors of Iraqi newspapers millions of dollars.
To -- Favorable stories about American troops.
Because -- they print these stories that ran the risk of their equipment be in this ordering a personal injury.
Now we send troops all around the world to the scene and then to try to promote liberty democracy and rights.
And I spoke up and -- -- in favor of free speech in the value protecting -- -- very very dramatically.
-- -- -- They're not the back that I never -- -- meaning one.
After that bit of what I.
Well the praised by any means necessary certainly did indicate taking very severe physical action by any means necessary is a very.
Extreme -- Well it it's an extra for its its illustrating.
-- is within the context of legality.
I mean you know that doesn't mean certainly it's not assume that we're gonna open nuclear weapons and a you probably have to you have to -- in the context of legality and reasonableness.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well you know I they're not taking any further steps are not physically -- chick filet.
They're probably can open in Boston have -- authority there I think in one area Massachusetts and Republican open again at Chicago's south.
He I don't think any means necessary -- necessary but.
I do appreciate you coming on the program to explain your point of -- and as it does seem a little over the -- -- Well.
I do agree that I should have added that the letter a little better and and much was support was not.
I'm not operate scholar and and I would imagine to be known Alan if you if you talk to mr.
Emanuel or these other.
They said what base.
In the heat of passion because they're very passionate about some of the ideas of some issues that that led -- obvious what's the same way I am about free speech so.
You know it will get those down the benefit of the doubt speaking in the moment but what you need to -- beautiful down.
All right then thank you very much sir appreciate you coming on the program.
