    No one is "deneying [sic] freedom of speech" to anyone. She is completely free to express her viewpoints elsewhere.

    Their hate is destroying them, they can't hide it anymore, they still can't handle "Losing", twice.

    This is a "good thing" they are doing to Rice, it shows the people what they are (double standard phony's).

    They never want you to hear any side but their side, if you are not one of them then you are a simple minded child that needs to be guided.

    If a right wing group treated Maxine Waters in the same manner the Screaming and Wailing of RACISM would be deafining from the Liberal Media.

    The "New Far Left Democrats" are self destructing.

    The truth needs repeating, so they won't forget at the polls.

    Uh...so what you are saying is that free speech only applies to people you agree with? If you have a discenting opinion, you have no right to speak? Is that what what your saying NEM??

    To a liberal, free speech all depends on who is giving the speech.

    I don't usually post in this forum, but I was just about to post the same thing. Isn't speech that may offend others exactly what the concept that free speech is supposed to protect?

    By the way, in a similar vein, isn't political correctness a backdoor way of stifling free speech? I notice many news outlets are not calling "illegal aliens" and "illegal immigrants" by those terms. They use terms like "undocumented workers."

    Likewise, I can not refer to people as "gluttons", they are now people with "eating disorders", or I cannot refer to someone as a "junkie", they have a "chemical dependency".

    Terms like these define the person in question as a victim, instead of someone who has caused their own problems, or in the case of the 'illegal aliens" committed a crime, and of course victims have no behavior to be responsible for.

    I will be considered insensitive if I couch any of these issues in non-politically correct terms. I may even be prosecuted for hate speech.

    Free speech is on it's death bed, and the country is in real danger of going down the tubes with it.

    It's true. The use of politically correct words is HIGHLY likely to stop the rest of us trading with you or telling you to take your military and stick it where the sun doesn't shine. You'll be a fourth world country a year after a whiney, America hating, liberal president takes over.

    BTW, for every silly example of PC, there is one which actually makes sense. There are some invented ones, which 99% of people ignore, even liberals. I work in a very liberal profession and NOT ONCE have I heard the terms Vertically Challenged, or Differently Abled, being used- literally never.
    BTW Eating Disorders and Greed are two different things. Eating disorders cover a range of things, which have a number of different reasons . For a good example of how changing descriptive terms can be positive, it is because of what at the time was considered PC that we no longer refer to black people as N******.

    The students are champions of freedom of speech. Freedom of speech says that the state will not deny people that freedom, but individuals have the right to use their own freedom of speech to try to persuade others to rescind the invitation to Rice. I'm sure those who want to hear Hillary and Bill Clinton speak have been "victims" of similar assaults.

    I think it's all part of free speech. Reagan for awhile nearly took the word "liberal" out of our lexicon. He successfully defined liberals in such absurd ways, that many liberals felt embarrassed by the term and switched to the word "progressive." On the one hand, you can say that Reagan stifled free speech; but on the other, it's simply the way the free market of our language works.

    I think American English (sorry Gomezcat) is the greatest language in history because it creates a democratic playing ground for words and happily takes any word that any language will give it, from chutzpah to hari-kari to chow mein to slalom. The reason some PC terms are more successful than others, I think, is that people are more sensitive to some issues than others. We don't use the word "fat," because it sounds rude, and thanks to the PC movement most of us don't accept calling a woman a "b!tch." As far as "eating disorder," and "chemically dependent" go, I think it depends on the situation. If I had a drug addict friend, I'd probably use the word "junkie"; on the other hand, if my father was addicted to pain medication, I would use the term "chemically dependent."

    Liberals can twist and spin all they want but the bottom line is, IF THEY DON'T LIKE WHAT YOUR SAYING THEY DON'T WANT YOU SAYING IT.

    THEIR HYPOCRISY AND HATRED GETS WORSE EACH DAY, THEY ARE "RUNNING SCARED".

    Allowing a Conservative their right to freedom of speech is a THREAT to their Looney Agenda's.

    Apology accepted! I've noticed that one or two people on here use Anglicised spellings every now and then for words like rumour and favour, so you're not all bad! :D

    In all seriousness, the huge majority of the world's native English speakers are American, so there would be something wrong if the language, in its many forms, didn't reflect that. We have become more Americanised, using phrases like "it sucks", "resume" (as in career resume) and "you're fired", trash and so on. Such words were unheard of thirty years ago.

    There is absolutely nothing going on in this country that is "reminiscent of what happened in Nazi Germany in the 1930's" if you are an intelligent, educated individual that actually knows what happened in Nazi Germany in the 1930's.

    I guess in your world, George Bush giving speeches to favorable crowds equates to killing millions of Jews. Yeah... gotta say I find your point of view to be disgusting and morally reprehensible.

    I think if you're Arab or an immigrant you probably have some cause to be nervous. For certain groups there's probably a little bit of the same feeling that German Jews felt in the mid-1920s. But, even though we've done some bad things (illegal wiretaps, arresting people without due process, torture), it's highly unlikely that we'll get much, if any, worse. Americans today really are more civilized than the Germans were 100 years ago.

    And yet immigrants are still arriving here literally by the truckload...

    I agree... but feel it is worth mentioning that Abraham Lincoln did many of the same things (albeit the 18th Century equivalent) with regards to suspending due process.

    The Arabs or Illegal Aliens don't have to worry in America, if a Cop gives them a dirty look the Cop goes to jail and the Alien gets a free car.

    When is the last time an Arab or an Alien has been beaten up or hanged.

    If the Illegal Aliens feel the same as the Jews did in Germany why the hell don't they stay in Mexico.

    If Arabs feel uneasy then they should get word to their Homeland not to let any of them to come over and slaughter us.

    NO MORE FLYING LESSONS FOR ARABS.
