Prop 8 Lawyer Ted Olsen Appears On FOX News Sunday – "’Would You like Fox’s Right To Free Press Put Up To A Vote?’" – FOX NEW POLL Numbers Overwhelmingly Agree With Judge Walker’s Decision (Video)

Prop 8 Lawyer and hero Ted Olsen made an appearance on FOX NEWS Sunday with host Chris Wallace.  As Wallace continues to eapeat the same old Right Wing anti marriage talking points against gay marriage Olsen tried to explain it to him this way.

“Well, would you like your right to free speech? Would you like Fox’s right to free press put up to a vote and say well, if five states approved it, let’s wait till the other 45 states do? These are fundamental constitutional rights. The Bill of Rights guarantees Fox News and you, Chris Wallace, the right to speak. It’s in the constitution. And the Supreme Court has repeatedly held that the denial of our citizens of the equal rights to equal access to justice under the law, is a violation of our fundamental rights. Yes, it’s encouraging that many states are moving towards equality on the basis of sexual orientation, and I’m very, very pleased about that. … We can’t wait for the voters to decide that that immeasurable harm, that is unconstitutional, must be eliminated.”

Judge Walker’s must-read decision and Ted Olson’s quick take-down of some of the typical and stupid arguments against the decision that is what e should be putting out there for the mainstream public to see.  NOY Joe Solmonese and stupid “hearts and minds” changing bullshit. 

And SURPRISE SURPRISE over at the FOX NEWS website in a  Poll among their website visitors that poses the question:  Did Judge Make Right Call In Gay Marriage Case?  An overwhealing number.  A RESOUNDING 72 percent say YES Jusdge Walker made the right decision in overturning Prop 8 and that Prop 8 is unconstitutional.
