My Favorite...

is when conservatives, who are always leading the way down the road to Censorship in the name of Decency (forcing their moral values on the rest of the population), complain that their first amendment rights are somehow being abridged when people respond in kind to the shit that comes out of their mouths:

KING: Why is your freedom of speech denied on radio?


KING: Because people can criticize what you say.

SCHLESSINGER: You know, when I started in radio, if you said something somebody didn't agree with and they didn't like, they argued with you. Now, they try to silence you. They try to wipe out your ability to earn a living and to have your job. They go after affiliates. They send threats to sponsors.

KING: That's their right, too.

SCHLESSINGER: Yes, but I don't hatch the right to say what I need to say. My First Amendment rights have been usurped by angry, hateful groups who don't want to debate. They want to eliminate.

Who's playbook does that sound like to you?
