Your right to swing your fists stop at my face.

If speech will hurt people, then it shouldn't be legal. Now, in the of "hate speech," I'm starting to rethink my position after all the drama over an anti-Islamic 12 minute, youtube film. I understand that the man broke his parole, but I don't want to think we'll make laws against the anti-Islamic speech just because some nutcases in the middle east threaten us.

However, it's believed that NAMBLA encourages child molestation. If that's the case, then we need to put a stop to NAMBLA.

Ody, most people (liberal or conservative) do not support child molestation. It's usually the left who advocates limiting speech. An example of this was in about 2004. I saw an ad from the International Socialist Organization on campus that directly said "No Freedom of Speech for the KKK." It was asking people to come to Raleigh to counter protest the KKK. So yeah, not all leftists support freedom of speech for kooks. Sometimes, they go too far with it.
