The Left and Free Speech

For a bunch of people who are so exquisitely concerned about the "rights" of terrorists at Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere, it seems that the left has no problem strong-arming fellow Americans with whom they disagree.

John Edwards brings pressure to bear against UNC to prevent a college reporter from discussing the upscale location of his headquarters.

And David Horowitz is shouted down by intolerant lefties.

What is it with these people? In the latter case, contrast the espectful attention for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at Columbia, to the rudeness and disrespect for a fellow American trying to warn of the dangers of Islamofascism. In the former case, think of what it would mean if this person became president, and could put the power of the state behind his now-petty tyrannies.
