Free Speech – Not for Conservatives


What is it with liberals and their desire to ban conservative voices?  Are they afraid to debate?  Are they afraid of the message?

The folks at attended the Printer’s Row Literature Festival in Chicago and asked people what books they could ban if given the option.  Authors included Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Andrew Breitbart, Ann Coulter, Ayn Rand, Michael Savage, Michael Moore, Karl Marx, Adolf Hitler, Barack Obama, and Bill Clinton.  They were asked to mark up to three books they would ban, if given the choice.  Less than two handfuls of individuals did say they didn’t think any books should be banned.

Participants overwhelming chose Sarah Palin who received 53 votes putting her at 36% overall, Glenn Beck at 23% and Ann Coulter at 22%.

Ah yes, the “tolerant” liberals once again displaying their arrogance in free speech for me but not for thee.

Once again libs and their eternal chanting of “free speech” was only a call for their brand of speech.


To be fair, conservatives do their share of attempting to ban entirely different sets of books. And for the record, only about 50% of the authors listed above are ‘conservative voices’ to begin with.

As a moderate, I don’t see either extreme as being particularly tolerant of the views of the other. I’d really like to see a bit more rationality and tolerance in general. Both sides are really bad at it!
