The Big Shut-Up

The Big Shut-Up, by Mark Steyn. “The left doesn’t want to win the debate, they want to cancel the debate.”

Over the weekend, I swung by Judge Jeanine’s show to talk about one of the most malign trends of our time: the ever more open refusal by one side to permit those on the other side to speak. As I always say, I don’t care what side you pick on the great questions of the age – climate change, gay marriage, Islam, transgendered bathrooms, whatever – but, if you’re on the side that says the other guy isn’t entitled to a side, you’re on the wrong side. Here’s how I put it to Judge Jeanine:

Well worth a listen. We all know this, but it is well put.
