Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 16, 2022

Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney on Monday called out the House Republican leadership team she once served on for enabling vile forms of racism and demanded they reject those GOP members who have made common cause with racists after a deadly shooting in Buffalo, New York this weekend.

Wow. Just WOW! Still don't like her politics but at least she sort of stands for Freedom and is FINALLY calling out her party. Too little too late I am afraid.

Uh huh. Or maybe they fostered a country where free speech is of paramount importance. And free speech does have its negative side too, as does systems of government that are anti-free speech. Unfortunately, it seems Liberals have to actually change America to be anti-free speech in order to find out what those negatives are. They love to spout all the good things about other countries but can't be bothered to look at the negative repercussions of the path they have put America on.

I mean, Dems want to be free to encourage and support looting, rioting and killing. But they don't want Cons to be free to do it. Picking and choosing the free speech you want others to follow only makes you a Dictator. Just saying.

Liz Cheney needs to pull the trigger and just run for President. Her on the campaign trail would be an earthquake for the GOP come the debates and the primaries.

See... this is the problem with conservatives... they don't actually understand the constitution at all. What about anything that is said here do YOU thinks violates the constitutionally protected right to free speech? Because, as far as I can tell, there is nothing here that is asking the GOVERNMENT to suppress this speech.

You are correct... the Republican Party has EVERY RIGHT to promote racism. They can even change their name to be the "Racism Party" if they want to. But, if they do not support those views (this is completely hypothetical, because it really looks like the Republican Party does support those views) then they have every right to speak out and condemn them. As well as the right to associate, or in this case not associate, with people who (again, hypothetically) do not conform to the values of their organization.

I did not see you get all whiny and judgmental when the Republican Party decided to kick out Liz Cheney for HER speech and association, but when SHE says that they should do that to racists, suddenly it is a big deal to you.

So, to recap... this does not violate ANYONE's right to free speech. And, even if you wanted to make an argument it did, it is very clear that you only care about preserving the "free speech" of racists and Trumpers. That when other people's free speech is violated, you stay quiet.

Probably would have left on the last bit but came here to say pretty much the rest.

What debates? The Republicans have made it quite clear that there will be NO More presidential debates, unless they're allowed to hand-pick the moderators.

Cite your sources of democrats encouraging looting and rioting specifically in this generation.

in fact, let's have a p!$$!ng contest

I'll bet I can find more republic0wns promoting such things... against us libruls who are (eye roll) "trying to replace them"... and all the stuff that must be done to prevent that from ever happening... because Jezus is expecting the white man, in particular, to be here when he gets back... or something equally inane.

Seriously you are a culture armed to the ---- and your young men have lowered your life expectancy stats via suicide... primarily with guns to the head... which seems to bear the claim that you need them to defend yourself against enemies... primarily yourselves... a man can't kill himself twice.

Oh wait looky yonder that bad black man is stealing a TV set.

Ergo GFY
