    Default Blacklisting of conservatives?

    Are American conservatives being blacklisted just as leftists were in the McCarthy era? Should liberals return to supporting free speech?

    Kat Timpf of Fox News is the latest conservative to be hounded by the Left. She has tweeted she was hounded out of an establishment because she works for them (and is a National Journal columnist). A bottle of water was also emptied on her head at an event where she was due to contribute to a discussion on criminal justice reform.

    Hang on a sec- your previous post was a complaint about 'rightwing' commentators being blacklisted and targeted... and then your next post is a random threat to anyone on the left?

    Perhaps might work better if you could figure out whether wish to be portrayed as a victim or wish to be seen as a promoter of the kind of behaviour you have been complaining about?

    You don't seem to understand what the word "blacklist" means.

    Hint, it doesn't mean protest the presence of.

    There is also the firing of conservatives from Google and Facebook, including the one who sold Occulus to Facebook.

    Hounded out, eh?
    When the left start sending her mail bombs then you should really worry.
    And you have the absolute bloody cheek to complain about the treatment that the odious witch Ann Coalter calls down upon her head considering the lies she spreads.

    You really are lacking any sense of proportionality here.

    Ann Coulter's books repeatedly go to the top of the Amazon and NY Times best-sellers.
