Leftist Thugs Show Tolerance

Of course I jest.

Alternately, leftist 'thugs' assert their rights of free assembly and speech. And, btw, your use of the term 'thug is not particularly tolerant.

Max, you know better. Don't bait.

Please . . . explain to me why that is baiting? First, I'm consistent on free speech issues. If you ever see me take the other side, I'll cop. I understand your point, but I think the video stands on its own. I found it awful, but they certainly were not doing anything 'wrong'. In a hypocrisy sense, if you could show these same guys telling other people not to be racist or name-call, I'd be on board. But, you didn't. So, the video showed people who sucked, but your attempt to brand 'the left' as thugs was an overstretch.

The baiting is describing their behavior as exercising their freedom of speech instead of trying to halt someone else's.

which, they weren't. They were trying to get someone not to cross their picket line.I think that has been a universally accepted practice. The racial overtones were unfortunate, but don't make them thugs; and my response was genuine, not an attempt to 'bait'. whatever that means, in this context.
