I want to talk about the different types of freedom of speech. First I want to set comercial speech in a different category. Thus a pregenerated comercial spam is something liberals and conservatives agree on. That category is the only posts I will
delette. The reason is it is manufactured and has zero to do with anything.
Artistic expression should also be free but not subsidized in any manner. If the artist accepts a subsidy he is responsable to community standards. If you want blasphemous art do it on your dime. I wonder what the reaction to the left would be of a brilliant artist like the Beak creating a cat dung like painting of Noam Chomsky
or using urine on Mohammed. No I would never do such a thing but there is a double stsndard at work.
Political speech in non comercial forums should be uncensored. I do not know of a single conservative or moderate blogger who delettes posts. I do enjoy a creative attack with wit something the Duck is incapable of. Woe onto those that attack Mr Beamish seriously. I also enjoy an intellectual reparte with patriotic liberals like B or the mercurial Justin Morris.
The Constitution talks about political speech expressly. Thus when anti semites of the far left want to stop zionists from their right as Americans this is hypocritcal.
The fact that jihadists and Communists are grantged freedom of speech unquestioned by the far left is an obvious comedic point.
Now TV shows is an area where I agree with B I am not in favor of censorship. However Desperate Housewives is not political speech and falls somewhere in between comercial and a low class artistic exposition of bad taste. I do not see it as sacrosanct as free expression in Universities and the public arena.
