The Left Isn’t The Free Speech Movement Anymore

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 29, 2007

In schools and colleges across America, teachers and professors recall the “Free Speech Movement” of the hard left at Berkeley in the 1960s. But today’s left often shreds that idea in its own intolerant behavior. At Michigan State University, British Nationalist Nick Griffin was shouted down from a speech on the danger of radical Islam. The Lansing State Journal reported: “Hurling obscenities and using chants to interrupt his address, rambunctious student organizations forced Griffin to abandon his speech and allow an informal question and answer session.” This liberal quote is a classic:

“We have all come from different backgrounds,” said Authra Khreis, 17, a pre-med student and a protester. “We should accept one another. I don’t think he should be allowed to speak. You can use free speech until you hurt another person.”

Finally, did you see the kerfuffle the John Edwards campaign created around a college student reporter? The Raleigh News and Observer reported they demanded that Carla Babb, a reporter for the college TV station at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, pull down her “Republican”-sounding report on their headquarters:

And just who decides what is hurtful? Ruffled feathers? Someone who is hurt by the truth? A Presidential Campaign Staff in third place in their home state? Have you seen some of the signs carried by lefties (Commies) at protests around the country? What would their response be to Impeach Hillary For Campaign Fraud? Imprison Sandy Pants?

I almost wish that Hillary would win (she very well might), and then we would see just how the Neostalinist lefties really feel about Free Speech.

It is only Free Speechwhen it favors them or targets an opponent, and Hate Speech when it targets Lefties.

And in an effort to show that lefties do indeed hate America, I have included a portion of my headlines from West Carolina Report for today:
