Schlessinger — who announced on Tuesday's Larry King Live that she will end her radio program at the end of the year following her N-word rant last week — was pressured to step aside, Palin tweeted in Internet speak, because "her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence" her. The former Alaskan governor added that the situation "isn't American [and] not fair."
"Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists," Palin tweeted. "And b thankful 4 her voice,America!"
Schlessinger used the N-word 11 times in five minutes during a call last Tuesday with a black woman asking how to handle racist comments. She later apologized for the "horrible mistake," but told King she decided to retire because she wants to regain her First Amendment rights.
"I want to be able to say what's on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors," she said. "I'm sort of done with that."
What do you think of Palin's comments?
