Thread Name: BS: Free speech- as long as you're Liberal.
Subject: RE: BS: Free speech- as long as you're Liberal.
"For Bruce's edification, the definition of a liberal is not "a whiny self-indulgent spittle-spined bleeding-heart wuss" or anything near it."
I have never said anything of the kind, as you well know. I DID say that a Liberal who hits me with a 2x4 because I am a conservative has lost the high ground over the KKK or Nazi who does the same because I am Jewish.
And the antifa have been hitting reporters, casual bystanders, and people WHO HAVE NOT ATTACKED THEM physically. If one is allowed to attack those who have a viewpoint one disagrees with with physical attacks, I know of few here on mudcat who would be safe.
Does the majority have the right to beat those they disagree with into submission? THAT is what a percentage ( looking like 10-20%) of the antifa have stated that they believe. The question is how many of those here who consider themselves "Liberal" agree with them?
Or do you mean that "1. Any person who advocates liberty of thought, speech or action."" means liberty of action means not having to obey the laws about assault?
ANY person should be judged BY THEIR OWN ACTIONS- and held responsible for those actions, regardless of whether they are liberal or conservative.
