Ken, reacting to Andrea Peyser’s claim that the surfeit of editorials decrying violent rhetoric amounts to “fascistic censorship”:
Cry “censorship” when your speech gets you sued or locked up. Cry “that’s a call for censorship” when someone says your speech ought to get you sued or locked up. But when your speech gets you vilified, mocked, condemned, and called out as morally responsible for awful things — however unjustly — that’s not censorship, and if you say it is, you’re a whiny twit with contempt for the principles underlying the Constitution of the United States. That’s a feature, not a bug, of the First Amendment. The marketplace of ideas gets rough. Wear a cup.
