There's really no better way to sum up the difference between the mentality of the Left and the Right than to point out that the Left tries to shut down the conservative speakers, and it never even occurs to conservatives to do the same to the Left.
All of these protests aimed at preventing Trump from exercising his right to free speech -- the latest one being in Arizona -- underscore the fact that the Left simply doesn't seem to believe in free speech.
This dichotomy can be observed regularly on college campuses across the country: conservative speakers are denied the right to speak on a regular basis, whereas conservative students never try to shut down Progressive speakers.
What does that say about each side's basic attitudes?
The other striking thing about the leftist protesters is that they seem to feel that they are accomplishing great things by disrupting others' lives. The Arizona protesters parked their cars on a highway and shut down traffic for miles.
What did they think they are accomplishing by doing that? What did the Chicago protesters think they were accomplishing by stopping Trump from speaking there? Did they think that by misbehaving they were winning more people over to their side?
Ray Bradbury wrote Fahrenheit 451 , a novel about the burning of books and the suppression of dissenting ideas in 1953. He was inspired to write it because of the McCarthy era and its dampening effect on free speech. And for a long time, Fahrenheit 451 was an iconic symbol on the liberal landscape.
But….who's trying to suppress dissenting ideas now? Is that why the book is never mentioned anymore?
