    I just can't get enough of the obsession people have with wanting not to be judged for spewing horrible crap all over the place.

    That in no way relates to what has been talked about here.

    Again.....what is horrible to you may not be horrible to others. You need to be more specific as in what is it that you are thinking about being so horrible?

    It absolutely does. So, would you?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Their own policies dictate what the reporters are allowed to say in regards to particular crimes where the perp is black. They have admitted it.....their excuse--not wanting to make blacks look bad.

    You mentioned it in an earlier post. You seem to think that getting banned from somewhere for spamming or trolling is a violation of free speech. A few years ago it just meant you were a jackass.

    So called spamming and trolling are very nebulous terms used too often to punish someone, when the real reason for the punishment is simply because of a conflicting political agenda ...you see it all the time on the various boards.

    Re: Free Speech

    Its traditionally been the core belief of BOTH sides, conservatives AND liberals. But as Hillary pointed out during her 2008 campaign, the new term used to describe the majority of modern democrats and their supporters, is "progressives". For the most part, liberalism is dead on the left.

    All you have to do to prove that point to yourself, is look up the TRUE definition of the term 'liberalism', and compare that with the much more radical and illiberal movement of the post-2000's.

    Look up 'illiberal democracy', and you'll instantly recognize that it fits the Democratic party and their base MUCH more accurately.
    👉When fascism comes, it'll be masked in anti-fascism. It'll be carried out by people who demand that we limit civil liberties and criminalize speech. They justify violence and intimidation against dissent, to 'protect us' from the allegedly huge mobs of seemingly invisible 'phantom fascists' and "Nazis" (What Nazis)
