Liberals are trying to shut down opposing opinions

Seriously? “Stop printing those stupid, right-wing diatribes” (Letters, May 5). Really?

Said the man posting a stupid, left-wing diatribe.

It never ceases to amaze me how many liberals claim to support the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech. That is, clear up until they discover that not everyone agrees with their agenda. Then they want opposing opinions shut down.

I am a Tea Party conservative on Maui. A rare breed, I know. I disagree with the letter writer who wants right-wing voices to be silenced. At the same time, I support his right to express his wish. That is also the opinion of every conservative I have ever known.

Political thought and opinion are at the very heart of the First Amendment.
