"How Conservatives Have Weaponized The First Amendment"

The left continues to press its case against free speech.
   Sometimes it's ok to reject arguments out of hand...
   However there are some points that do warrant thought. Breyer is right that we don't want to misuse appeals to free speech. Even aside from the fact that we don't want to misuse any arguments, misusing free speech arguments would tend to undermine support and respect for free expression. (Have I mentioned that I hate counterproductivity arguments?) 
   Anyway: the left now has up such an anti-free-speech head of steam that I don't see this push abating any time soon. 
   Oh and: don't miss this link: Louis Michael Seidman, "Can Free Speech Be Progressive?" Spoiler alert: no.
