Why anonymous speech should not be protected under Freedom of Speech

Coward quoteJust today I received a response on my post “What happens in Bahrain stays in Bahrain , sort of.” It was from “Eddie” e-mail dewrew@drwee.com IP: 89.187.80.228, 89.187.80.228 this is what he wrote:

“you are one dumb typical racist american cunt”

Of course, the e-mail address is undeliverable and Eddie probably isn’t his real name. In my opinion the first amendment was to protect people’s rights to voice their opinions. Opinions should be owned. The first amendment should not protect cowards who refuse to own their speech. If you can’t own it, than you shouldn’t say it.

If disliking people like “Eddie” makes me racist, so be it, at least I own my speech.

    It can be devastating as people anonymously or pseudonymously insult others, or send death threats to people. At the same time many people’s lives would be ruined or ended if there true names were exposed just for having such controversial opinions (ie. bloggers, YouTube channels, pro-choice or gay mirage advocates) and their identity becoming public. Can you see the importance of the right to privacy for the many outweighs a few insults?
