Americans are entitled to diversity of thought

In regard to the controversy of Joseph Shimburski in the Town of Aurora and his anti-Obama sign, I don’t understand why supporters of President Obama are so intolerant of free speech. I grew up in Communist China, where we did not have the option of talking freely about our leaders. It is the reason I came to America.

I see people like Paul Bradford as typical of tyrants who feel they should have the right to suppress free speech. He is the problem, not Shimburski. Liberals often talk about diversity, but they allow no diversity of thought. Maybe Bradford should read the Bill of Rights again.
