Analysis: The REAL Reason Liberals HATE Free Speech, LOVE Soviet-Style Censorship (Video)

Once upon a time, liberals would say that while they disagreed with a stated opinion, they supported the right to express it.  Those days, however, are long gone.  Liberals today absolutely HATE free speech.  Worse yet, they absolutely LOVE the kind of censorship employed by dictatorial regimes like the former Soviet Union, Communist China, and Nazi Germany.

The fact that free speech is actually enshrined in the U.S. Constitution means absolutely nothing to these people, many of whom actually rely on the First Amendment for their livelihood.

For example, Robert Baer, a former CIA official-turned CNN intelligence and security “analyst,” actually argued that free speech is “nonsense.”

“[Y]ou know, this freedom of speech is just nonsense because you can’t go in a movie theater and yell ‘fire.’ It’s against the law,” he added, using an analogy that has been false for years.

A former CNN “journalist” and Nobel Peace Prize laureate recently told Stephen Colbert that free speech is a threat to freedom.  Seriously.

Liberals have been losing their cookies ever since Elon Musk bought Twitter for one reason: The thought that he would restore free speech to a platform that was once used by the federal government to silence dissent is anathema to everything they believe and support.

In their view, only ONE opinion is allowed: theirs.  All other opinions MUST be silenced by any means necessary.  The Constitution and Bill of Rights be damned.

Companies like Apple have issued threats, ignorant Hollywood leftists have thrown temper tantrums and threatened to leave the platform.  Even the Biden Regime — no friend of freedom — has suggested it would use the force of its politicized agencies to target Musk.

Why?  Why are leftists so scared of free speech?  Why do they embrace authoritarianism and Orwellian censorship?

The answer is really very simple, and I’ve said it here several times.

When you get right down to it, the only REAL difference between modern liberals and the tyrants who ran Nazi Germany and the former Soviet Union is… native language.

Let that sink in, America.  Liberals hate freedom, plain and simple.  Today, it is free speech.  Who knows what it will be tomorrow.  And remember, these are the kinds of people who engage in this sort of behavior:

And if you think your rights are secure simply because they’re engraved on a parchment somewhere, think again.

Stay vigilant, America.  If this totalitarianism isn’t stopped cold, we might as well turn out the lights, because we’re done as a Republic.
