"Opinions" which are based on hatred and false accusations make this country great? Then, according to your statement, racism and anti-Semitism "make America great". Which is an absurd claim. An opinion which is not based on fact and on truth is an opinion which is not worth a plug nickel. When Thomas Says that it is plausible that Charles Manson was a nice guy because the meaning of "nice" is subjective, that "opinion" is worthy of nothing but denunciation. When Thomas says that Ferguson "struggled" to hit high notes, even though in the 50's through the 70's we saw him hit Triple C's at the end of 2-hour concerts and we saw him hit Double C's with no effort at all, Thomas is making false accusations and no person has the "right" to make false accusations.
