Freedom Of Speech: Not If You Disagree

The far left relies on their `right to freedom of speech’ whenever their words (and diatribes) are questioned but it seems that the far left believes they are the only ones entitled to this right.

Unruly Crowd Shuts Down Immigration Debate
A community forum on immigration ended just about as fast as it began Thursday night in the Logan Square neighborhood when protesters disrupted the event and shouted down the controversial participants.
“No free speech for terrorists!” chanted the demonstrators who crowded inside the Fourth Congregational Church at 2625 N. Tallman Ave., where the event was being held.
WBBM Newsradio 780’s Steve Grzanich reports organizers had barely started the introductions when the noisy protest began.
The demonstrators succeeded in stopping what was supposed to be a debate between advocates of immigration rights and a group called the Illinois Minuteman Project which supports stricter enforcement of U-S immigration laws.
“They have to know that their racist ideas are not going to be tolerated,” said protestor Maria Melquiades of Chicago. “Racism kills. You don’t debate racism,” she said.
“All immigrants are welcomed and Minutemen are not,” said protestor John Eriksen of Chicago. “Where they are, they need to be shouted down because they are racists and Nazis,” he added.
The forum had to be cancelled when police were called in to disperse the protestors. Officers arrested one demonstrator for disorderly conduct.
Hmmm, the far left has apparently decided that they will dictate what can and cannot be debated in America. What part of freedom of speech do they not understand?
When people are silenced and forced to live in fear of repercussion because of words, thoughts, and ideas, where is the freedom?
That is not America. That, my friend, is the ugly face of communism.
