    My personal experience is that democrats, once a supposed vanguard of free speech, are no longer that. I don't last too long in the WaPo forums because the moderators won't even let me sneeze. Compared to Fox News, I see liberals get away with all kinds of things.

Didn't liberals used to be the ones that were always talking about being the victim?

Conservatives are such vanguards of Free Speech that they automatically call any Republican... even those with near if not perfect voting records.... RINOs for criticizing Trump.

Or the attempts to prevent teaching of America's past with race, the recent book banning in schools as well as local libraries. And that is actually affecting the government.

And before you type anything... no, I do not think the majority of modern Americans, or even just Republicans are racist. The point is the banning. I have read a few on the list, and at least one I disagree with a lot of, but that is not the point. It is not presented as fact, but source based opinion.

In Oklahoma, a Republican introduced a bill to ban books. It even includes a heft bounty. This one is so insane it deserves a link...

Social Media banning and what have you is something I think is wrong, and am very much apposed to the practice of, but what was proposed in Oklahoma is disturbing.

You see, you are currently representing the current problem in America. Everyone is acting like the problems we have are just he other side of the aisle. These are problems with the way our society is, that just take different flavors regionally or politically.

The country's ego is so pout of whack that we ignore what our side does, or even justify it, and make the other side out to be monsters.

There is a very accurate saying "All that takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

Though now everybody thinks every single issue is that evil. Everything is the downfall of society, so no matter what you do is justified.

And that is not a left or right mindset, it is a 21st century American one.

I have no problem with liberal propaganda books being banned in schools or public libraries which are government funded. They should be burned like firewood. If you want them to be available in book stores or Amazon, then I’ll support you (although I’ll still make fun of those books).

How arrogant of you to think a government funded organization should carry your propaganda and that it’s removing your “right”.
