Yeah, the accusation of hate is a liberal's first line of defense against their own immorality.

In the eyes of many/most liberals, to disagree IS to hate. It is inconceivable to them that anyone could disagree with their strongly-held beliefs (and sadly, I do think that they really believe what they say) unless they were filled with hate.

Of course, that is wrong. And I don't hate liberals. I strongly disagree with them, and I think that they have been misled (I speak here of the rank and file liberals. The liberal leadership knows what it is doing and uses the weaker liberals to get what they want politically, which has NOTHING to do with the liberal philosophy.)

Liberal academics have been using speech codes for years. They hear an idea they don't like and it makes them angry. But they don't quite know how to defeat the idea on its own merits. So instead of either a) taking the time to cool down and offer a rational response, or b) actually changing their view, they simply give in to the impulse to censor. That is why our campus speech codes really don't reduce so-called hate speech. They simply embolden those who hate speech.

I wish I could say that this childish inclination toward censorship is unique to liberal...
