    I wonder as to the outcome of a strike of this nature. Has the government exceeded any restraint at all? Or would it crush such a strike to ensure it's supremacy over it's electorate? Hmm. Interesting thought experiments stem from the notion.

    Lethal force has been used to crush strikes in America in the past, so yeah it could and would.

    No one is suggesting anything has happened to it. You are desperate to create a strawman by refusing to recognize the difference between what we have the right to do, and what we should do.

    Folks are free to try to shut others out of the public debate by screaming that they are racists, haters, bigots, child-rapists, etc. They simply are wrong (both technically and morally) to do so when it is inaccurate, and their goal is to avoid debate.

    True, or at least shouldn't. But yet, you speak your mind, and it's not aligned with the determiners of Political Correctness, and you are chastised, excoriated, or even worse. So who exactly is suppressing who's free speech exactly?

    Why do you cry victim when others exercise their right to free speech?
    Exactly why political correctness suppresses free speech, for fear of retribution. I'm curious why do you don't see that.

    So, some people should not express their opinion because you don't like it? That's a bit fascist, isn't it?

    If someone thinks you're racist, that's their right. Deal with it and stop crying victim just because others exercise free speech.

    If you cannot deal with accusation, that's your problem. People have the right to believe someone is a racist. Too bad.

    Exactly why political correctness suppresses free speech, for fear of retribution. I'm curious why do you don't see that.
    Oh, you're SO SCARED! You poor victim. How terrible of those people to speak their mind. What gives them the right?!

    You interpreted that list as seeking 'victim status'? You really should have followed the posters advice about your head and sand.

    No. Some people should stop verbally abusing others in an attempt to bully them into silence and submission.

    Others such as yourself should stop defending them by engaging in idiotic strawmen arguments.

    Another poor victim!!

    People, we've got to help these poor men. They can't deal with accusations. They're powerless. They're oppressed by others exercising their right to free speech. There's only one thing we can do. No free speech for their political opposition!!

    Won't you help these victims?? Tell their opposition to shut up!
