right-wing calls for censorship

It wasn't just the right-wing. Tipper Gore was one of the leaders of the musical censorship movement.

And Hillary Clinton/Joe Lieberman led the whole video game moral panic. Twice. Once for Mortal Kombat, and the other time for Hot Coffee.

People seem to forget that the left have always been good at a bit of moral panic themselves. This "liberal" SJW nonsense is not new.

I forgot about that. But, yes, the "save the children" stuff is old hat.

I didn't vote for Kerry/Lieberman because of that. It's a hard call whether I made the right decision. I should just have not voted for him because he is a fucking asshole liar politician, same as all the others. But I was young and idealistic.

I was speaking more of the mentality of the place the censorship was coming from; ie. the family values/protect children crowd, as opposed to the left-wing end sexism/stop rape crowd. I'm a right-winger myself.
