The person who wrote this Letter to the Editor (first letter, The Expurgated Truth) in the Dallas Observer, complaining about censorship on milblogs, also wrote to me, asking me to self-censor my site.
He happens to be the person who writes the most wildly acidic comments on this site (often ad hominem attacks on me), comments that I have never once censored, altered, or removed. When I told him that I wouldn’t consider any form of censorship on my site, that I believe firmly and foremost in free speech, he called me a “motherfucker”.
There you have it folks, Leftism in it’s most pure form. A demand for free speech when he is censored on one milblog, then a demand for censorship on another milblog when he thinks he’s getting the pants beat off of him in a debate.
Freedom of Speech to a Lefty means only that speech which they agree with. Which is no freedom at all.
There are no rights that have any meaning whatsoever if they can be turned on and off by man or government.
(update - within the last few minutes he's also called me a "motherfucking phony", a "motherfucking asshole" and a "stupid asshole". I'm guessing this might be why he's censored off of other sites.)
