This pretty much tells you everything you really need to know about the left and its respect for free speech. On Thursday, California state Sen. Janet Nguyen, R-Garden Grove, was escorted off the Senate floor when she tried to criticize the late Tom Hayden, a well-known anti-Vietnam War activist, the Sacramento Bee reported.
According to the Bee:
Republican colleagues say Sen. Janet Nguyen, R-Garden Grove, was silenced by the Democratic majority when the Senate sergeant-at-arms escorted her from the chamber as Nguyen tried to criticize the late Democratic lawmaker Tom Hayden for his stance against the Vietnam War.
“I’m enraged at the violation to free speech, our Constitution and the precedent this sets,” said Senate Republican Leader Jean Fuller, who asked the Senate Rules Committee to look into what happened and make sure there is no “retribution” against Nguyen for the incident.
Nguyen, a Vietnamese refugee who represents a large Vietnamese community in Orange County, said she was shaken up and “quite upset” at being removed. Two days after the Senate memorialized Hayden, who traveled to North Vietnam with then-wife Jane Fonda in 1974, Nguyen said she wanted to offer “another historical perspective.”
“He sided with the communist government that enslaved and killed millions of Vietnamese, including my family,” the Orange County Republican said. Without U.S. support for South Vietnam, she added, “I wouldn’t be here today. I would be dead.”

Reaction was pretty much what you’d expect:
god bless her standing up for her people who were mass murdered by Hayden/Fonda supported regime!

Only have Free Speech if you are not a republican. SAD!

Yes, it’s very sad. But this is what liberals mean by “tolerance.”
. So what happened to tolerance and discourse? I guess that's only for Democrats on the Senate floor?

"Progressive"-Democrats in CA are nothing less than authoritarian, Brown-Shirt thugs. Un-American! Fascists

That could pretty much describe “progressives” Democrats everywhere.
The Senator tweeted:
Extremely grateful for the support for my #1stAmendment right to speak for the memory of those who fled persecution after the Vietnam War.

Assembly member Melissa Melendez reminded followers:
CA senate dems honored Tom Hayden Tuesday, who said "a long-term goal of mine: the peaceful, nonviolent disappearance of the white race" MM
