One would think there is little wrong with that, except...
Kim was doing the right thing the other night, attending the Marine Corps Ball in North Carolina as the invited guest of a Sgt. Martin Gardiner:
Perhaps inspired by courageous men who fight for love and country, she tapped out the following innocuous tweet later in the evening:

Scrambling, she then issued a prayer for the people of Palestine, but it was too late. She had already issued a politically incorrect thought, and the Hate was upon her. Kim deleted her tweets, and subsequently apologized:

Interesting to see how we've turned into the very society we used to loathe. We claim to have free speech, but that is only when you are echoing the talking points and beliefs of the Left. Should you veer from them, you will be put back into line. And forced to apologize for your transgressions to boot.
Just ask Papa John’s owner John Schnatter. Or Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy. Or ask Mark Basseley Youssef, who made an "anti-Muslim video" and is now paying for it with a year behind bars.
Or ask Kim Kardashian.
If these high-profile Americans are being forced to back down and publicly eat their words, what hope is there for the rest of us?
Or perhaps that is exactly the warning the speech bullies of the Left intended...
We still love you Kim; you tried to do the right thing; it was a little too tough for you to stick by it. I also like the fact there seems to be a conservative streak among the Kardashians in general. So we'll give you a pass this time, and make you our Rule 5 lovely of the week:
