The simple truth is people are frustrated with differentiating opinions, and desire those individuals to be silenced. Freedom of Speech is an unalienable human right, but labeling someone as a racist, homophobe, nazi, or whatever ridiculous comment follows leads to minimal progress. Facts do not care about your feelings, that is the ultimate reality. I am openly a conservative-leaning citizen, but listen to the entire spectrum. I might not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.
