Freedom of Speech

Something we give great amount of lip service to, but do we really.  What it seems to me is that when many rant and rave about free speech they mean only their speech not mine.  It seems they really want freedom from offense - which really REALLY Offends me!  If they want the courtesy of a fair hearing should they not want to return the courtesy?  If they say or do something that offends me does that mean I have a right to shut them down as they are trying to with things that they take offense with.  I say down with PC and grow a skin!

    If you’re a Liberal, justice, fairness, patriotism, truth, facts, honesty, integrity and God “offends” you but the Liberals couldn’t care less if a Conservative is offended by their ridiculous ideology. And the double standard continues…

      none of that offends an actual liberal, an actual liberal will fight & die for them… or at least your right to them. Leftists can’t allow diversity of opinion or action, it conflicts with their core beliefs.

        That is correct and the Progressive leftist has demonstrated the propensity to appropriate words then shift their understood meanings

    It is indeed still relevant today. All the more so I’d say.
