Whatever happened to our freedom of speech?

You’ve heard of the so-called “free-speech zones” around college campuses and various cities in the US.  If you try to peacefully assemble in a non-designated area you could face fines or jail time depending on the specifics.  Then you hear about how Chick-fil-A is being pushed out of cities because of the owners opinion on gay marriage and his devout faith in Jesus.

So what happened?  Why is the 1st Amendment so one-sided now?  Liberals can go out protesting, tearing up private and commercial properties, defecating on police cars, stealing and vandalizing the night away and they cry and whine that it’s all in free speech.  Occupy Wall Street camps out and destroys public parks and screams free speech when they’re evicted for essentially being idiots.

However, if any conservative group, whether it’s the Tea Party, Oath Keepers, or any other for that matter the left goes off calling them names and trying to ban the right from exercising their rights.  They get all up in arms calling conservatives bigots, tea baggers, and other offensive names.  What’s funny about it is the conservatives don’t go around like animals wrecking everything.

So, again, what has happened that our constitutional rights?  It seems the left wants them to only apply to the progressives.  The right, generally, gets screwed in the deal.

Now, don’t get me wrong, liberals get screwed, too, in some cases.  Like the liberal black man (I forget his name) who was told he couldn’t protest police treatment of minorities.  All the man was doing was standing outside the US Supreme Court holding or wearing a sign.  He wasn’t taking to anyone or making a scene.  He was doing nothing wrong except freely speaking outside a free-speech zone. Seriously? We now have to use free-speech zones to speak freely?  What kind of BS is that?

Now, local governments are getting involved with Chick-fil-A owner Dan Cathy’s personal feelings on gay marriage trying to run the entrepreneur out of town.  If I were in charge of OKC any business owner who wanted to get rid of guns would be run out.  How long until the left gets the ACLU involved and they sue my butt?  It wouldn’t take long. 

Folks, this double standard has to stop.  It’s BS.  Now, it’s obvioulsy up to conservatives to preach and promote our rights for everyone… even the looniest of the left.
