Free Speech Hurts

Technorati tags: , ,

Image source:, hosting by PhotobucketThere are those whom, on the one hand, say that they champion free speech. But on the other, won't hesitate to tell those whose opinions or philosophies are opposed to their own, to "shut the fuck up", or to brush off those opposing ideas by wanting to "throw them into the sea".

This sort of behavior has a name. It's called hypocrisy. It's well and good to be on the giving end, but all kinds of epithets are hurled when getting some free speech in return.

Well, guess, what? Free speech hurts. Or more accurately, it can, if you let it. Or if you do not have the capacity to deal with free speech when on the receiving end. And free speech, in a sense, is a give-and-take kinda thing.

So, whether UltraMENJ and his blogging empire likes it or not, Walski refuses to shut the fuck up. UltraMENJ is free to sit on his high horse and spout his hypocritical thoughts as much as he wants, on his legion of blogs - that's his prerogative.
