“Hypocrites get offended by the truth.”
― Jess C. Scott, Bad Romance: Seven Deadly Sins Anthology
Just because someone says something does not make it true, obviously.
But controversial speech often involves a statement of fact that many are afraid to say, because of censorship, intimidation or shaming by others.
When you’re afraid of truth, you tend to foster the violation of free speech. Leftists are, of course, major hypocrites. When they perceive their own speech silenced, they are the first and loudest to scream for their rights.
But those same leftists are the most comprehensive and vicious advocates of the violation of another’s free speech.
