Speak Out: Freedom of Speech

Apparently free speech is for Liberal Democratic approved speakers at universities/colleges. Those speakers of opposing views are to be boycotted, protested, shouted down by those who think their thoughts and ideas are the only ones that matter. The following are just a few links where Freedom of Speech has been curtailed.

    It's the same 1960's era movement all over again except there aren't any "hippies" . The only thing missing is a Nation wide protest against the Middle East Wars and when Trump gets back it could be added on to the list .

    The guy campaigned that he wasn't a politician and said he wasn't going to be the White House norm , why is it such a surprise now when he's not the White House norm ? Is it so unbelievable that every thing the guy does has to be impossible unless a Russian did it for him or is it because an unlosable election was lost and it just can't be true -- it just can't -- how could an Obama surragote lose , how !!

    Free Speech is alive and well , it survived 8 years of Obama's total failures , it will survive Trump .

    Those who attempt to re-enact the 1960's should remember what came after the 1960's , or , watch out what you are protesting to get , sometimes all of that shouting down of others and oppression of others doesn't amount to peanuts...

    Rick: Don't know who first said it - If you remember the 60s you didn't live it.

    I was too busy running a new business, raise kids and keep my head above water to worry about the 60's.

    This movements amounts to the same thing, a bunch of know it all kids still wet behind the ears prodded onward by a few monied human rats trying to make more money.

    Only a few make out on the deal and the battle scarred young army are left to decay on their own.

    The likes of George Soros are financing this one. He is just one more ego maniac narcistic scum in my book.

  • The liberals confuse equality with conformity. When they claim to be for free speech they are demanding uniform speech that furthers their agenda.

    I wouldn't put all of us liberals into conformity , some of us want Freedom from oppressive and intrusive Government -- a Liberty , the Right to breath without a Government choke around our necks and minds .

    Rebels , radicals , Liberals . Let Freedom yell across the Great Lands with no Government foot on our throats ! A mandate on all is a Freedom for none...
