Day by Day

Just remember folks, when the Donks talk about free speech, they ain't saying that it's for YOU. It's only for THEM.

Wise-cracking funnyman Al Franken yesterday body-slammed a demonstrator to the ground after the man tried to shout down Gov. Howard Dean.

Why did Stuart Smalley, the world's least funny third-rate hack comic assault someone?

"I'm neutral in this race but I'm for freedom of speech, which means people should be able to assemble and speak without being shouted down."

So, because he's for free speech, he tackles someone who excersising that right. Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Sure. Remember folks, the Left will be the first group to scream about free speech, and they'll be the first group to stifle it.

Censorship is almost exclusively the tool of the left now. When was the last time anyone on the right even tried to silence someone? John Mitchell couldn't even make his own wife shut up. But the left does it all the time. They try to get Rush taken off the air. They pass Orwellian, authoritarian rules on college campuses, essentially forbidding anyone to say anything negative about anything the left likes. They throw eggs at Arnold while he campaigns for governor. They barge onstage while President Reagan tries to accept awards. Now they've progressed to outright beatings.

Ah well, just another reason to dislike the Left.
