What’s Good For the Leftist Goose…

…is good for the far-Right Gander.
“The moment somebody says, ‘Yes I believe in free speech, but,’ I stop listening,” he continued. “You know ‘I believe in free speech, but people should behave themselves. I believe in free speech, but we shouldn’t upset anybody. I believe in free speech, but let’s not go too far.’ The point about it is, the moment you limit free speech, it’s not free speech. The point about it is that it is free. 
The question is whether this NEC would support free speech for “haters, racists, and neo-Nazis” as well, or would he say, “Yes I believe in free speech, but…”  Rushdie: sincerity or hypocrisy? Free speech for those who believe that NECs like Rushdie have no place in the West?
