“So why are we surprised? I’m not surprised,” Morgan went on. “It doesn’t mean to say I agree with all of it, but it means I can understand it, and I understand why the liberals — my side, if you like — are getting it so horribly wrong. They just want to tell people, not just how to lead their lives, ‘but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to, it’s a kind of version of fascism. If you don’t lead the life the way I’m telling you to, then I’m going to ruin your life. I’m gonna scream abuse at you. I’m gonna get you fired from your job. I’m gonna get you hounded by your family and friends. I’m gonna make you the most disgusting human being in the world.'”
Morgan is telling necessary truths.
Liberals of a different generation believed in big government, but they also believed in the basic civic rights of freedom of speech, freedom of association, and a dozen other positions that made clear our society should allow for a wide diversity of views.
Today’s liberals are “illiberal” in that they want to shut free speech down. They want everyone to conform purely to their worldview — or be cast aside.
That means zero freedom. No diversity. No real exchange of ideas, as Mike Pence lamented. That’s no way to live. That’s not America.
Piers Morgan is right: “No thanks.”
