Tennessee Coach Fired for Anti-Obama Song [POLL, VIDEO]
This should scare the wits out of you. Is this a harbinger of things to come? Will we be punished for generally innocent criticism of public officials? Free speech verboten when directed at political icons?
A 26-year-old assistant football coach in Tennessee gets fired for writing and singing a song mildly critical of President Barack Obama. You can hear the song here.
The satire is clearly no more than a pimple on the backside of the American political satire tradition. So, is this the harbinger of isolating our elected from any criticism, or just when it is directed at a “Sacred” political personage?
