Kirsten Powers: Liberals' mob rule http://usat.ly/1gJ2Kqx Scratch a liberal, find a fascist every time...


Kickstarter's attempt to censor film about convicted abortion doctor is another example.



Last week brought a chilling reminder of how mercilessly some liberals will work to silence and marginalize people who hold views with which they disagree.


Even for those of us who support same-sex marriage, the virtual manhunt of Mozilla chief Brendan Eich was scary to watch. His heresy was a private donation in support of an anti-gay marriage initiative six years ago. Mob rule enforcing groupthink is as illiberal as it gets, and yet it was liberals demanding uniformity of thought or else.


Another incident of muzzling those without the proper worldview received less attention. Kickstarter, the nation's biggest crowd-funding site,refused to accept a film about convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell unless descriptions of his crimes were removed.

Liberals/Progressives have a level of zealotry reminiscent of religious fervor. The Progs remind me of Father Torquemada from the Spanish Inquisition or the Puritan minister Cotton Mather during the Salem Witch Trials.

I'd say there are plenty of zealots on both sides of the political spectrum.

I don't think so. Left wing zealots are in ascendance and their numbers are legion. Besides myself I can't think of any right wing zealots?

The person writing this article needs a bit of practice in reading comprehension.

Indiegogo only had a problem with the language that they used to describe the film on their site. They in no way tried to censor the film. She says stuff like "Somehow, making a movie recounting the crimes of a convicted abortion doctor is disrespectful and inconsiderate." when nothing that Indiegogo said had anything to do with the content of the movie.

It is funny that supposed conservatives in this case give no mention at all to the right of a private business owner to have control over their own business, especially in such a minor way.

The reading comprehension problem is all yours, my friend.

Indiegogo does NOT enforce the "policy" on pro-abortion films with reference to late-term abortion, on slasher movies, on incest films.....only on a documentary on the worst serial killer in US history.

Lol, again, reading comprehension.....

This has nothing to do with the content of the project. Please provide one quote where they said anything about the film's content.

What happens in the films and what you choose to write on their site are two different issues.

You don't think so eh. We need only to look at the Right Wing's ridiculous war on drugs, the actions of hardcore Christians and Jews, people that think Sarah Palin is smart, people who think Rush Limbaugh and Bill Oreilly are credible sources of news. There are plenty of zealots on both sides. Plenty of stupidity to go around.

OH BULLSHYTE....and you know it.

Why, oh why, do you suppose, Oh Wise One, that slasher and incest films are advertised without a problem, as are movies that deal with late-term murder....errr abortion......from a pro-abortion view??

We need to point out point out that they do not apply their "standards" equitably, that they are typical "progressives" who would rather not talk about the mass murder of children, and are simply too cowardly to actually come out in support of suppressing the film, so they use some flimsy excuse.

I agree with most of what you say however why the Sarah Palin comment .
She is a very smart lady who has the courage of her convictions and that scares the hell out of establishment on both sides of the isle .

Again, you are not comprehending the basic difference between the content of the project itself, and how they choose to promote it on the site.

They didn't say anything about the content of the film. They asked for specific changes to remove graphic wording from the write up on the Indiegogo page.

The response from the film makers was pretty stupid. They responded saying that they couldn't make it less graphic because the grand jury report was graphic. What does that have to do with anything?

Can you find any other examples of Indiegogo allowing people to use excessively graphic or inflammatory wording in promoting their project on the site?

Anyways........

Funny, still no freedom loving conservatives chiming in to say that a private business person can run their private business anyway they damn please!

I just get amused watching you flounder from thread to thread! So... how many threads are you being baffled in currently?

What happened to the Christian Right in American politics? It faded away. The right lacks power because it doesn't control the institutions in the country.

The left is as responsible for the war on drugs as is the right.

O'Reilly isn't a conservative. Rush Limbaugh isn't a source of news...he's a brilliant polemicist.

Conservatives and libertarians in the US are weak. They accommodate leftism because they are afraid of fighting the same way the left fights. They are insufficiently radical.

Btw, Sarah Palin is smarter than Joe Biden.

I live in a fully lefty state and the war on drugs is still ongoing. I do not see our fully Democrat controlled government legalizing drugs anytime soon. Not even weed.

What do you call the Tea Party?

What left wing group with elected officials would you really call radical?

The Tea Party people are Traditional Americans who dearly love their country.

I'm not a member of the TP.

All members of the extreme left are now embraced within the coalition of the Democratic Party.
