Well this is liberals as in...true liberals. These people are not the ones crying over Alex Jones or cuz folk have mean speech that hurts fee fee's. These are the "I might not like what you say, but I'll die for your right to say it" types. These are not the people attacking "nazis" cuz feelings.
It is just a damn shame those kind of liberals are either quite rare these days or that they are quite content to sit back and let the "liberal" name be shit all over by people who freak out over "It's okay to be white" posters.
The fact conservatives are now championing free speech should disturb the true libs.

This is fairly personal, because my car was broken into last night. It was stolen a few months back. My neighbor was up around 5 a.m., saw the kid looking through the car, got his gun and rushed out. The kid ran off into another car with his waiting friends.
If this was Massachusetts, my neighbor would have been charged with a crime, as it's forbidden by law to confront a trespasser/thief, and you're obligated to contact authorities. The funny thing is, a politicians/lawmaker who probably authorized the thing commented by saying "That's the law, but I sure as hell would run out with baseball bat if someone was stealing my car".
Complicating matters is juvinline offender law, that essentially keeps kids out of jail unless they murder someone. This results in "slap on the wrist" punishments, and repeat offenses, as is the case in the article I posted.
The fact is, many gang members are kids. Liberals have a platform of protecting the vulnerable, and kids are considered vulnerable... No parent wants a kid jail.
Yet your average gang member/prospect murderer will be well under drinking age. Liberals don't have an answer for this, and stick to "rehabilitation/more money for schools" bs, which doesn't help anything.
Lefties: "You don't care about babies as soon as they are born! All you care about is forcing young mothers to cary babies to full term! But, nope, no universal healthcare or college for the mother or baby!"
Also Lefites: "Let's not care at all about minorities or do anything about it. But we will very publicly donate money to clearly crooked charities. But let's not talk at all about legit minority struggles or acknowledge the problems with minorities. That would be racist!"
I'm not sure it's hypocrisy to put a man to death for, say, tieing down a few kids and torching a house, while feeling for the someone that had the misfortune of being in the womb of someone that doesn't want/can't afford their existence.
I can see both sides of the issue, in the sense I can understand kids are a huge expense for individuals, and a drain on society if the couple needs services...
I also find it disturbing that in many cases, if the carrier does choose to bring a child into the world, it's their boyfriend who insists she get the abortion. I honestly wonder if support for abortion is carried forward by concerned women, or by concerned men who simply don't want to be on the hook for the rest of their days..
