Julian Phillips of Fox & Friends Weekend on Neo-Nazis: "This is America - Let Them March" [First Amendment Kudos]

Regular readers of my threads at FR know that Julian Phillips of Fox & Friends Weekend has been a favorite target for my barbs.Fairness therefore dictates that I salute him when he gets something right, as he did this morning.The topic was the planned neo-Nazi march in Toledo, OH and the violence it sparked among largely black protesters.Co-host Alisyn Camerota teed up the issue: "the question always arises, do you let the neo-Nazis or other groups, like the KKK, march?"Phillips' answer was unequivocal and spot-on: "my answer is you let them march." While making clear that he understandably takes strong issue with such groups' positions, he repeated: "this is America. You let them march."Good on you, Julian.
