Liberal Free Speech Ain't Freedom

It has been my observation over the years -- and it is confirmed for me almost daily -- that liberal free speech means free only if you agree with their liberal, anti-American, pro-diversity, open-border, multi-culturalism, pro-choice, cradle-to-grave nanny state agenda.

Let me further define these subjects, so that you don't think that conservatives are actually the racists hate-mongers liberals would have you believe.

Liberal is left-wing, which would take too long to explain here. It is not liberal in the classic sense, of which the country was founded. Convervatism is actually more closely aligned with classical liberalism, which believes in the individual over the state. Liberals believe in the power of the state first.

Anti-American. America has been bad, we've mistreated too many people, etc. It's always our fault when we're attacked. Conservatives actually believe that America is a great place; not perfect, a work in progress, but the best country in the world. Why else does everyone (almost) want to come here.

Pro-diversity. Actually favoring people based on skin color, which is anti-discrimination. This is more racist that actually believing in equal opportunity for everyone. Conservatives, mostly, are not racist and believe in equal opportunity, not equal results. To say you don't have prejudices is to lie to yourself. It's just the way we are. But it doesn't mean you have to act out on your imperfections.

Open-border. Everyone is legal. Come on over, we'll take care of you as long as you vote for us so we can stay in power. We don't care if you commit crimes, you poor victims of the hated conservatives. Liberals only care about our laws when it suits them. (Recently, Nancy Pelosi stated that we should enforce our gun laws, but she doesn't think we should enforce immigrantion laws.) Conservatism believes that you can come here, but you have to follow the law of the land.

Multi-culturalism. Every culture is equal. Even if they aren't. Conservatives believe there are many aspect of different cultures that are good, but some things we don't need to embrace. If you make the U.S. like Mexico, it won't be the U.S. any longer.

Pro-choice. It's a woman's right to kill her baby at any point before the actual birth. Men have no right to say anything about this. Conservatives want this to be limited and most conservatives don't want government mandating this area of policy at all.

Cradle-to-grave nanny state. We'll take care of you as long as you keep us in power. Conservatives: I can take care of myself a lot better than the government.

Disagree with them and they'll try to shut you up, or shut you down. If you don't believe this, you haven't been paying attention.

Part of their attempt to quiet any opposition is to discredit them. It's a tactic that can work, but only if you don't fight back.

This is one reason for the obsession (or even a hint of interest) in the Obama administration over Rush Limbaugh. This is the liberal mindset. If someone disagrees with you, go after them to discredit them.

Remember the Bush years? It must have been hard for him to ignore all the hate thrown at him, but he kept the Presidency above it. Obama can't.

Wake up before you lose the right (or ability) to disagree, to state your position, to stop the liberal, socialistic takeover of your country.
