How Conservatives Weaponized the First Amendment, New York Times, 6/30/18

  • Liberals candidly admit that they don’t actually care about free speech. Some of the quotes in this article are horrifying: “What I have come to see is that it’s a mistake to think of free speech as an effective means to accomplish a more just society.” (Jonathan Urick)
  • Went back to that @nytimes First Amendment column to see if maybe I was just in a really bad mood, or having a stroke, when I read it before. No. It’s that bad. We’re so screwed from every direction. (Popehat, temporarily Tweeting as “WeaponizedHat”)
