Megyn Kelly very blatantly and indirectly responded to what some of her Fox colleagues have been saying about Pamela Geller and the “Draw Muhammad” cartoon contest tonight.
Kelly didn’t bring up O’Reilly specifically, but very clearly said, “So private citizens shouldn’t do offensive things, even behind closed doors now, lest they cause offense… We don’t compromise America’s bedrock principles just to make other nations like us more.”
Rich Lowry and Alan Dershowitz both backed Kelly up, with Lowry saying speech shouldn’t be ended in the U.S. with an “assassin’s veto” and Dershowitz saying “it’s part of the American tradition to provoke so that the world can see.”
Dershowitz also said, as he did earlier this week, that of all groups right now, it’s only radical Muslims who threaten to kill someone when they dislike someone’s speech.
