It's not a matter of permitting them to voice their opinions. It goes beyond that. I love to read them, publish them, and heap ridicule upon them.
Those "open-minded" liberals? They want us silenced.
Case in point:
Gloria Allred seeks Rush Limbaugh prosecution
Rush's crime? He said things she doesn't like. So she wants him punished.
Allred: “Mr. Limbaugh targeted his attack on a young law student who was simply exercised [sic] her free speech and her right to testify before congress on a very important issue to millions of American women and he vilified her. He defamed her and engaged in unwarranted, tasteless and exceptionally damaging attacks on her."
Make note of the fact that, in her view, that young (30-year-old) law student had free speech rights that are to be protected, but Rush Limbaugh doesn't.
If I were like this small-minded liberal, I'd want her banished.
Instead I expose her idiocy for all the world to see.
The 1st Amendment. Ain't no asterisk there, babe, no matter how much you want there to be.
