End of Free Speech?

I'm sick to death of left wingers trying to stifle the free speech rights of people who disagree with them. Liberals talk of "tolerance", but what they really mean by tolerance is you can say what you want, as long as you agree with them.

The flap over Miss California is the latest demonstration of this intolerance. Where do Perez Hilton and his ilk get off thinking they have the right to destroy the life and reputation of this young woman, simply because she dared to answer a question truthfully? I applaud her courage in voicing her opinion, probably knowing there would be unpleasant consequences.

Liberals know they can't win an argument with conservatives based on logic, so they resort to a favorite tactic: hurling an epithet, e.g., "racist", "homophobe", etc. to derail debate and intimidate those who disagree with them. Unfortunately, all too often that tactic works. What a shame.
