Senator Graham: "Free speech is a great idea, but we're in a war"

That’s Lindsey Graham, Republican, on the recent Koran burning in Florida.  He had more to say:

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Congress might need to explore the need to limit some forms of freedom of speech, in light of Tennessee pastor Terry Jones’ Quran burning, and how such actions result in enabling U.S. enemies.

“I wish we could find a way to hold people accountable. Free speech is a great idea, but we’re in a war,” Graham told CBS’ Bob Schieffer on “Face the Nation” Sunday.

“During World War II, we had limits on what you could do if it inspired the enemy,” Graham said, adding certain speech can “put our troops at risk.”

Senator Graham should do some research on what WWII limits were placed on that which could inspire the enemy.  I did and quickly found a number of posters that I’m guessing many like Graham would find offensive today… each of what follows was subsidized by the United States government:

I’m imagining if we looked hard enough, we’d find some anti-Germany posters that are as… brutally honest.

What I think we take away from this is that Lindsey Graham… is an idiot.

But I’m open to correction.
