Union bosses have a beef with free speech. They are trying to pressure Maine television stations to pull our ads. Apparently they don’t want Mainers to hear the truth about labor leaders’ history of harassment, politics, and forced dues.
Thankfully, one television general manager responded to the union leaders with a dose of chutzpa:
You write in your letter that Maine “… is a place where we honor each other’s right to freedom and liberty.” I agree with you, which is why these spots are airing. Defense of free speech is not dependent on whether or not I agree with the its content.
