Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)-  On December 22nd Aerosmith Guitarist Joe Perry sent two tweets in defense of Phil Robertson’s right to express his “opinions & beliefs.”

He framed his defense with a rhetorical question about the “crackdown” on freedom of speech.

CNSNews.com posted Perry’s tweets. The first one from 1:46 pm: “So what do you think about this Duck Dynasty hoopla? More crackin’ down on Freedom of Speech in the US or what?”

At 1:50 pm he followed with: “Seems to me people have a right to express their opinions & religious beliefs. But that doesn’t mean we have to agree.”

Perry is a Republican but makes clear that “[he's] a Republican from the old school.” He believes in hard work and standing for what you believe.

According to Noisecreep.com, in 2012 Perry talked about media attacks on celebrities who take a stand for what’s not politically correct: “So much of this stuff is politicizing, what the media does is so much about selling a product. It makes me kind of nuts.”

      I agree with Joe Perry, and side with Phil all the way.

      It is sad the amount of “constitutionalists” conservatives talk about freedom of speech being lost and don’t even understand that private employers or public people protesting and advertisers reacting is an exercise in free speech, not a restriction on it.
