    Why are Liberals always proposing we censor, ban or restrict free speech? I can remember back when I was young, liberal and stupid... before I realized that I was a conservative... but back then, liberals were against censorship. Strongly against it in no uncertain terms. Even if it offended people, liberals believed we have the free right to speech and it shouldn't be abridged for any reason other than direct public safety, like screaming "fire" in a theater. When did all that change with Liberals and how do you justify this?

    Do you people think that society is going to put YOU in charge of deciding what can and can't be censored? Are you so full of hubris you think Liberals are never going to be without the power of authority again? Why not just stick all Liberal threads in the Rubber Room or Flame Zone on the basis of... all you ever do is antagonize and spew propagandist rhetoric to flame the right? Serves the same purpose, doesn't it?

    Censor, ban, restrict? Why are right wingers always so alarmist and Flame Zoney, Rubber Roomy in their responses? The Collapse of Iraq and the Rise of ISIS: Made in America?

    Why are right wingers always proposing we censor, ban or restrict free speech? I can remember back when I was young, and I met my first stupid adult... before I realized that stupid right winger and conservative were two totally different beings. ... but back then, conservatives fought back against stupid right wingers who called for censorship of books, lyrics, speech, protests. Strongly against it in no uncertain terms. Even if it offended people, right wingers believed only they had the free right to speech and it shouldn't be abridged for any reason other than .....well you get it.

    How is moving an Op-Ed thread to the Rubber Room or Flame Zone banning or restricting it? It isn't. It is simply in another place. In fact, rather than restricting it, being moved to one of those forums opens it up to more expanded comment.

    I know of NO conservative today who is calling for bans on anything involving books, lyrics, protests, speech or anything else. Conservatives are mostly against this stupid PC bullshit that seems to be permeating society these days... where everyone is offended by the least little thing and believe they have some kind of goddamn constitutional right to NOT be offended.

    Nobody is banning it by moving it. What is wrong with you?

    Moving it to another forum is not censoring or restricting free speech; in fact, it is expanding it. You have a problem with your vocabulary, apparently.
