When it comes to free speech, I’m a Nazi.

When I was a young man I was a fervent liberal.

I was a liberal because I believed with all my heart what Evelyn Beatrice Hall said in 1906:

“I disapprove of what you say, generic viagra unhealthy but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

One of the main reasons I am no longer a liberal is because liberals turned their back on that belief years ago…as evidenced by their embracing of politically correct speech, cialis their elevation of feelings above freedom of expression, and this weekend’s protest against the Nazis who spoke in Madison.

The question I have to ask is who was acting more like fascists: the Nazi’s exercising their freedom of speech, or the crowd who would have gladly suppressed it?
