    Criticism about how the left wants to control what people say in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
    Criticism? Nah, just keep talking, Bridget. You do more damage to yourself when your fingers hit the keyboard and your brains spill out; no one here need criticize you.

    Asking Libs to take responsibility for their actions?

    ROTFLMAO...do you realize how many generations of Liberal irresponsibility and buck passing you'd have to peel back for that to ever happen?

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    How totalitarian and Communistic of you.

    ANd actually Bridget...you and Novatwit would only limit speech uttered by Conservatives or anyone who disagreed with your Liberal dogma...let's be honest here.

The ACLU has defended NAMBLA, NAZI's, and a variety of religious and political groups. That doesn't mean that the ACLU is defending "civil liberties in diddling a kid" it means that they defend free speech.
    Ummm...yeah...ok whatever.

    The very people you listed that they've defended are the reason they draw such scorn and ire from normal Americans.

    People can say whatever idiotic thing they want to...doesn't mean that someone has to jump in and defend them when they do.

    But then again you have to understand the underpinnings and beliefs of the ACLU founders to understand why they defend everything that flies in the face of societal norms in this country.

    Oh and I'm not making any attempt to show "superiority" princess...I'm just stating facts.

    Not my fault if the truth intimidates you.

    I think that we all agree that Polanski is a unique form of human sewage, and that we would all react the same way that Lanie would to someone who tried to do that to our children. The Hollywood support for Polanski and the lack of same for Kazan pretty much demonstrates where many, but not all, liberals stand on the issues. They will forgive a child molester, but not an opponent of communism. Our resident libs, Nova, Lanie and Noonwitch, are clearly not among those who fall into that category.

    I agree. This site would be much diminished without them.

    There is no "but". You either believe in free speech or you don't.

    The fact that I amuse myself with thoughts of executing certain people , doesn't alter the fact that I defend their right to free speech.

    For that reason, we cannot simply round up the folks at militant immigrant rallies. To do so, even though we would nab a lot of criminaliens, would be to use government force with the effect of intimidating the (supposed) citizens and legal resident aliens exercising their First Amendment rights.
