The Left and speech control

Anti-Bullying Speaker Curses Christian Teens.

As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy asses.”

The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”

Rick Tuttle, the journalism advisor for Sutter Union High School in California, was among several thousand people in the audience. He said they thought the speech was one thing – but it turned into something else.

“I thought this would be about anti-bullying,” Tuttle told Fox news. “It turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”

Tuttle said a number of his students were offended by Savage’s remarks – and some decided to leave the auditorium.

“It became hostile,” he said. “It felt hostile as we were sitting in the audience – especially towards Christians who espouse beliefs that he was literally taking on.”

Tuttle said the speech was laced with vulgarities and “sexual innuendo not appropriate for this age group.” At one point, he said Savage told the teenagers about how good his partner looked in a speedo.

Boy, what a class act. But the way the Left works, you can bet that Savage and his acolytes will try to turn this around and make those who were offended and/or left out to be the bullies -- because they dared to offend a homosexual.

Then we have a new video by MoveOn.org which attempts to make using the term "illegal immigrant" ... a hate crime. Suggested alternatives are the usual "undocumented worker," blah blah blah, but I think the best I heard was last night on a pundit show: "potential tax payer." The host was beside himself with unbelieving hilarity, asking the idiot who uttered this phrase something like, "What should we now call thieves and murderers? 'Potential law-abiding citizens??'"

This is the Age of Obama, where using actual, factual terminology is not only wrong, it may soon land you in jail.

Yeah, I saw that ad from MoveOn.org on Sean Hannity's show last night... what a joke. That's the kind of nonsense that Europeans deal with... they don't have the 1st Amendment like we do, so anyone who makes "hate speech" is arrested and faces up to four years in prison... it's a joke, but if people like Ruth Bader Ginsburg had their way, that's the way things would be in our country. Also, Savage is a nut.
