Obama and Free Speech -- All Messed Up

Obama on Sony hack: ‘Go to the movies’
Today President Obama does what he does best:  flip-flop on positions when it is politically beneficial. He and his writers assume the American people cannot remember what he has stated previously.

Today he is all about free speech, wishing Sony would have shown "The Interview" as originally planned and not have cancelled it.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest stated “The president and the administration stand squarely on the side of artists and other private citizens who seek to freely express their views.” Except when he isn't.

Recall the Administration's uproar over the homespun, hardly-viewed YouTube video dealing with Mohammad and some anti-Muslim material. Obama and his UN Ambassador Susan Rice claimed that the Benghazi attack were triggered by this video. Obama condemned the video and the message.

Globally, freedom of speech is more like Obama's view:  you are free to say what you want as long as the appointed or elected leader agrees.

Obama again shows his hypocrisy.
