On Freedom of Speech


One of the themes of this blog is support for the First Amendment, and that includes its free speech and free press clauses. Hogewash! supports everyone’s right to peaceably speak and publish. I support everyone’s right to publish his own blog or comment freely on blogs hospitable to his views. That does not oblige me to provide bandwidth for everyone who seeks it.

Indeed, I find emails and attempted comments like this one rather tiresome.pptoas_whinesSince most of these whiners seem to be left-leaning politically, I’m sure they would appreciate that this is a case where I agree with Chairman Mao, who said, “Let a hundred flowers bloom.” If they’re sincere, the whiners should plant theirs in their own gardens.
