NYTimes: Liberal Free Speech Defenders Turn Against First Amendment

In a remarkably honest exposé, the New York Times acknowledged Saturday that “liberals who once championed expansive First Amendment rights are now uneasy about them” ever since conservatives realized they should apply to them as well.

The Times cites First Amendment lawyer Floyd Abrams who noted that whereas the left once led support for First Amendment protections, they are now “at least skeptical and sometimes distraught at the level of First Amendment protection which is being afforded in cases brought by litigants on the right.”

The difference between then and now? Many of the ideas currently being protected by free speech rights run contrary to progressive ideology. Over the last 13 years, the Supreme Court “has been far more likely to embrace free-speech arguments concerning conservative speech than liberal speech,” the Times said.


A very interesting story

Translation........Libs:" What!? Free Speech is for Everyone!?" " Well, we can't have that!" "We will ,willingly destroy it for Everyone, if that's the case!!"


Note: Did you know that our Constitution is one, if not the Only one to have "Freedom of Speech" for all people, Written down?

The Constitution is irrelevant.
Free speech is futile.

I will gladly stick with my own Karma, both good and not so good comes quickly these days. I can only hope that I do not have to come back to this crazy planet. My head and heart carry a fairly light load these days. Hate, violence,greed, envy, fear are like trying to swim with rocks in your pockets, not easy to fly away either........... :)
