    This is exactly what the left fears...
    The left should fear it. Without indoctrinating children when they are very young and impressionable, they will never be able to increase their voting base. No grown, educated adult would have support an ideology built on surrendering all power to a federal government hundreds or even thousands of miles away.

    I keep thinking about the papa john guy. Say one lousy word, BAM, YOUR ass is grass. Is this the America we want? I think of Mark Furman to Paula Deen. It's beyond childish and controlling, how could we sink to such a level? But we have standards...Blacklisted, banned and shunned for using a word EVERYONE uses. Wow. Isn't freedom of speech great?

    George Carlin had that shtick about the 7 banned words you cant say back in the sixties. I see those words all the time here on this board and hear them on the street. But only one word even Geo. Carlin didn't mention , hell it's even in Tom Sawyer. So why is that one word so offensive, that even freedom loving liberals want to ban it and control free speech? It isn't really that big a deal, really. Nope.

    Yes, freedom of speech is great. None of those examples you cited has shit-all to do with freedom of speech.

    That’s his own fault. He played right into it by apologizing and stepping down. I would have gone to war. No way in hell I would ever apologize for being historically accurate.

    They all did. You’re just far too dense to understand it.

    It seems you are another who cannot understand what freedom of speech actually means.

    Once again a strong case for small government conservatism. Just imagine if progressives hadn’t unconstitutionally created a Department of Education. Betsy DeVos wouldn’t have a government job right now and none of this would even be an issue.
