When The Civil War Turns Hot [feedly]

When The Civil War Turns Hot

"Which means you have to allow people the right to think freely.  Yes, a lot of them will have stupid ideas.  (What, you think your sh*t don't stink?)  Yes, a lot of them will offend you.  (Communist ideas offend me, but do I come and shut you down?)
"Unless someone actually has the power to send police to your door to enforce their stupid ideas, you can learn to live with it.
"You do not in fact have the right to stop people thinking thoughts you don't like.  No, it's not unfair and bullying if people laugh at you.  Yes, it hurts like hell but there's a reason for the old saying "Sticks and stones may break my bones."   And besides, ladies and gentlemen, you've been aiming ridicule at the other side for years, in the firm belief there was no one here but us chickens.  (Some of us are dragons.  We just also happen to lay eggs.)"
