This recent switch of positions vis a vis the first amendment baffles me.

It doesn't seem like a switch to me. And if it were, it's far from recent. Don't let the liars write your own history for you.

Um... it's pretty recent and has relatively consistent throughout history. Conservatives have always been against free speech and liberals have always been the fighters for it. I think that conservatives are only supporting it because some ill informed people who call themselves liberals have started acting badly.

Happened in the last 7 years. Used to be the religious right that were the overbearing moralists. Now there's a new sheriff and zeds a gender queer.

There is a strange correlation between feminists who say women being attracted to men is a social construct and the people who say being gay is wrong and immoral.

Problem is, it's true. It was liberals who began the modern "free speech" movement, in order to protest the Vietnam war, allow porn, etc. etc. Now they don't like what they created.

Liberals are and have always been pro-obscenity (as long as it's "punching up") and pro-agreeing-with-them. What they've never supported is the freedom to disagree with them. To the typical leftist, the free expression of opposing political views is a problem that must be addressed, not a healthy part of the political process.

I'm well aware of that. This problem, of course, did not start with the '60's (when I went to college), but it certainly became more evident then. The '60's activists who trashed the military when they returned from Vietnam are the forebears of the people we have now.

Power corrupts. Don't think for a second that the bulk of conservatives are free speech absolutists. They weren't ten years ago.

The wealthy liberals are some of the biggest pieces of shite I've ever seen.

Liberal, conservative.

I'm completely ignoring whom said it, so this makes complete sense and is the reality of the situation right now with various SJW movements. It's funny when the various SJW movements end up clashing with each other.

Liberals are liberals until it strikes home.
