I've heard this phrase being uttered on some talk show. It is rather insulting so I won't describe liberalism as that but let me explain my own thoughts of how liberals think. A conservative looks at the first amendment as a legal principle that only applies in a court of law while a liberal looks at it as a principle to live by. This is why you hear liberals say things like "I believe in the first amendment" or "this is what I believe <insert political idea in here>". A liberal will apply this 'belief' in their personal life as something to live by and defines them while a conservative sees it as something they they don't have to live by personally and only a legal principle of how the government operates. A conservative doesn't believe that he has to respect the right of someone else to speak freely on a personal level while a liberal does because it is a principle for them to live by so it would be hypocritical for them not to allow someone to speak. The question is which one is better? I believe the conservative way of thinking is better because if I am morally obligated to let someone speak then that person has that right in my home, my business, or any other place that a person has control over. I actually lose freedom in this setting because I am obligated to do something that I don't want to and that is to listen to someone that I don't want to listen to.
