On Thursday’s “Fox and Friends,” Dr. Phil McGraw, host of “Dr. Phil,” assessed the threats of violence by radical, anti-free speech leftists, which ultimately caused conservative stalwart Ann Coulter to cancel her Berkeley, CA speech.
And Dr. Phil’s conclusion to the matter? Those that felt compelled to shut down those that they disagreed with was “just another measure of entitlement.”
Here’s what he said:
“Look, we have the right — everybody has the right to protest and do it peacefully,” he said. “We’re guaranteed that right. But if somebody starts doing things, talking about things that you don’t like and you start threatening, you start putting people’s lives in danger. Come on. The test of the First Amendment is that you fight to protect the right to talk about things you hate the most. And that’s not what’s happening here. I’m really bothered by this.
“And you say, why are they doing that? It’s just another measure of entitlement. They just feel entitled to shut down people that disagree with them. And I just disagree with that. I just think that’s bad, whether it’s Republican, Democrat or whatever. Give the people the right to say what they want to say. And if you disagree with it, raise your voice loud.”
“But listen, it’s not the thunder that makes the flowers grow — it’s the rain,” he continued. “You can get out there and yell all you want, but at some point, you’ve got to have a dialogue. And listen, we’ve been through civil war, and this country survived. If we can survive a civil war, we can survive Trump. We can survive Ann Coulter. But come on, you shouldn’t be threatening somebody’s life.”
