The Death of Free Speech...

6514b-badgeIt pains me to say what I am about to say… 

We’ve discussed this point time and again, pointing out the subtle slippery slope our countrymen were dragging us towards; ever increasing sensitivity to the words, images, and traditional thoughts that were once common in our American Culture. And now, officially, I think it is safe to say that Freedom of Speech is dead. And you stupid, stupid Progressives did it, getting drunk on the powers of fear and intimidation that their whining and demands for "tolerance" have wrought. 

Because thanks to your guys and your faberge egg self esteems, American freedom of speech is dead. 

Dead as disco. 

Dead as Elvis. 

Dead as poor Prince Oberyn, it's beleaguered head crushed under murderous hands of the Progressive Movement's Champion... Their Mountain, Political Correctness.

Now I'll give you that it's a bit of heavy handed hyperbole... Proclaiming that the Freedom of Speech is "dead" in as far as our Constitution goes. And you're right... The Government  has yet to try and sick stormtroopers on those that say what they would rather not hear (accountants and bureaucrats maybe... But not stormtroopers). But rather, it is dead in its spirit and tradition among the People; the freedom of pure and total expression sent to the way side in order to preserve the fragile feelings and self image of a very vocal and dramatically outgunned minority.

It won't be killed from the advancements that the Government spearheads (though if Michelle Obama has it her way, that might change soon), but because a generation now, made up of children raised in a cocoon that has protected them during their formative years from any and every discomfort that the cruel, cold, and insensitive world could bring to their precious self esteems and egos built on soft sandy foundations of positive reinforcements, self affirmations, and their mother's love, have grown up, have gone or are going to college, and are starting to demand that everything in real life that bothers them, or offends them, or in any 6514b-freespeechother such way makes them feel uncomfortable be taken away. 

Just as the Generation before them, choking on the fires set by eleven historical arsonists, begged for their rights to privacy and certain previously inalienable civil liberties be curtailed for the promise of security, so too will this Millenial Generation demand protection from their nightmares.

Take the recent rash of commencement addressees being shouted down or otherwise removed from the event, not because of what they were going to say at the event itself but for things they have said in their political lives that they do t agree with (not illegal or racist, mind you, but political disagree with)...

Or the talks in some State capitals to try and stamp out "workplace bullying" (of adults, mind you)... 

Or the Mozilla guy getting railroaded out of his position for personal political donations...

Or Frat parties that have garnered protests, expulsions, and national attention featuring controversial 6514b-thought-policethemes...

Or the ill fated campaign to remove the word "Bossy" from our vocabularies...

That cute thing Duke did where phrases like "Man Up" and "Don't be a Pussy" were to be buried away as we did our primordial grunts...

And then there's Rupaul having to apologies for saying "trannie"... 

Black football players fined for saying "Nigga"....

And so forth and so on, every day our news littered with examples of various public and private citizens being forced out on the public stage to prostrate themselves before the "clambering" mob; begging forgiveness for thoughts and expressions they may have said (the staggering majority of these instances said its nary a drop of hate, violence, or intention beyond being funny or conversational).
