Leftists Just Don't Know Any Better

In her column "The Fascists of Free Speech" Cathy Seipp takes to task the self proclaimed liberals and open-minded, whose actions prove them be anything but, as well as the addle brained among us who blindly defend an ideology that would seem them dead and/or subjugated violently.
...those most oppressed by political Islam continue to defend it, even (perhaps especially) in the wake of the Danish cartoon furor. I've heard that in Europe this phenomenon is now called the Copenhagen syndrome, and some of its arguments really are amazing.

For instance: "Freedom of speech is not absolute. It has to be in the service of something, like peace or social justice," a young British Muslim woman named Fareena Alam wrote in Britain's the Observer a couple of weeks ago. Although it's true that freedom of speech is not absolute -— laws against libel and making violent threats are stronger in Britain than here -— Alam has it exactly wrong. Free speech doesn't have to be in the service of anything but its own point of view. If it did, it wouldn't be free speech.

one of the great paradoxes of our time is that two groups most endangered by political Islam, gays and women, somehow still find ways to defend it.
A bookstore dedicated to free speech, famous for that dedication in fact, that won't carry a book because they find it offensive. A bookstore dedicated to free speech that won't carry a book that speaks against the most violently anti-gay and misogynistic movement in the word today. Talk about screwy.
