Matt Welch on leftoids who oppose free speech:

I agree with very few of the political complaints my right-of-center Hollywood pals make, but there’s one observation I’ve witnessed countless times with my own eyes: Some lefties can’t even conceive that a Republican would care about free speech, and so therefore if a righty is going on about the First Amendment it must be some kind of a scam. (Or “a wolfish assault in sheep’s clothing,” in the Times’ inelegant phrasing.) I’m very familiar with this line of thinking because, to my great discredit, I used to share it precisely in regards in campaign finance reform.

The blond, baseball-kinky communist makes a good point.

    1. Like Lenin, the New York Times realizes “that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.” And who better to ration it than the New York Times?
