Well, I'm here to say that my contract is up for my radio show at the end of the year and I have made the decision not to do radio anymore. The reason is: I want to regain my First Amendment rights. I want to be able to say what's on my mind, and in my heart, what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is a time to silence a voice of dissent, and attack affiliates and attack sponsors.—Dr. LauraWhy is Dr. Laura quitting her radio show? Dr. Laura has been terrorized by Liberal terrorists, you think I’m exaggerating? I’m not. Liberal terrorism has embedded itself into the American culture and it is as real as Islamic terrorism.
Dr. Laura told Larry King that she is quitting her radio show because, “[Liberal terrorists] try to silence you. They try to wipe out your ability to earn a living and to have your job. They go after affiliates. They send threats to sponsors.” That sounds like terrorism to me! (see 4:09min video)
What is totally amazing is just at this time the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in the case United States of American vs. Xavier Alvarez found that the constitution protected speech to the extent that Xavier Alvarez can lie about receiving the Congressional Medal of Honor, in violation of the Stolen Valor Act (the Act), 18 U.S.C. § 704(b), (c). yet where is the constitutional protection of freedom of speech for Dr. Laura Schlessinger?
[t]he constitutional right of free expression is powerfulNow if the 1st amendment of the Constitution can protect a liar why can’t it protect a Conservative talk show host who is a good and decent person?

Well one reason Dr. Laura’s 1st amendment rights where not protected by the courts is while some terrorists use airplanes, some use the courts but in this particular case, these terrorists used economic terrorism. These terrorist target one’s ability to earn a living by threatening those who sponsor a Conservative talk show.
These terrorists have done it to Rush Limbaugh, to Michael Savage, to Glenn Beck, and to anyone who has an opinion contrary to their agenda. You would think that sponsors would know this by now, some do but as you know terrorism works by inducing fear and sponsors are fearful that Liberal terrorists will hurt their business.
Most of Conservative talk radio lives in constant fear that one misspoken word will be the cause of an untimely demise to their radio show. The fact that any Conservative talk show is on the air in this climate of Liberal terrorism is a tribute to the professionalism and skill of each of and everyone of Conservative talk radio’s hosts.
Dr. Laura lived in consist fear for the sake of her sponsors and radio family a burden that no one should have to bear in a country that boast itself to be a free country.
What is so ironic is some of those who make up the Liberal terrorists group attacking Dr. Laura are attempting to defend the rights of Muslims to build an Islamic Mosque near ground zero on the basis if the 1st amendment. Moreover, at the same time others in that terrorist’s network are fighting to deprive Dr. Laura of her 1st amendment right of freedom of speech.
Who will fight for Dr. Laura? Who will fight for Conservatives in this country? Martin Niemoeller's message,”First they came for the Jews” comes to mind, please allow me this adaptation of this very powerfully poignant and famous thought:
First they came for the conservatives, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a conservative;
Then they came for the Christians, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a Christian;
Then they came for the tea party, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a tea party member;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me--
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
If we do nothing or if we quit the terrorists win. The Progressive Liberal Democrat terrorists win if we do nothing.
