JK Rowling: SJWs Stand with Tyrants

JK Rowling has a message for all the Trigglypuffs and Social Juicebox Wankers seeking to shut down the right of others to disagree.

The full context of the quote; she despises Donald Trump, but would not deny him the right to be heard because that’s what tyrants do.

“I find almost everything that Mr. Trump says objectionable. I consider him offensive and bigoted. But he has my full support to come to my country and be offensive and bigoted there.”

“His freedom to speak protects my freedom to call him a bigot,” Rowling continued. “His freedom guarantees mine. Unless we take that absolute position, without caveats or apologies, we have set foot upon a road with only one destination. If you seek the removal of freedoms from an opponent simply on the grounds that they have offended you, you have crossed a line to stand alongside tyrants who imprison, torture and kill on exactly the same justification.”

Nope.

 

The Montgomery County (MD) Council, citing the unmet needs of a school system facing explosive enrollment growth and a widening academic achievement gap, voted Thursday to raise the average residential property tax bill by 8.7 percent — the largest increase in seven years.

 

The tax hike required a unanimous 9-to-0 vote because it exceeds the charter limit on tax revenue that the county can collect each year. The increased revenue will help underwrite a $5.2 billion operating budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1, with about half of the money resulting from the tax increase going to Montgomery County Public Schools.

The intent was to stave off what members saw as a tipping point for the 156,000-student system, which is expected to enroll an additional 10,000 students over the next five years — many of them speaking little to no English. To boost funding for school construction, the council on Wednesday agreed to fund nearly all of the district’s six-year,$1.73 billion capital budget request.
