UC Berkeley conducted a poll which found that 53% of liberals in California oppose the First Amendment rights for people who have ideologies that are different than theirs.
Yep, that’s right, over half of California liberals do not believe in the freedom of speech that is one of the cornerstones of liberty which countless Americans have fought and died for. It is just a nuisance to them.
It is no surprise that it is that high being that we have a epidemic of communists in this country telling them that freedom of speech deserves to be responded to by violence and lies to silence the voices of any and all conservatives based on what a few fringe far-right haters say.
A new poll conducted by the University of California Berkeley reveals that a majority of California Democrats oppose the First Amendment right of freedom of speech and assembly, at least as it applies to extreme right-wing groups. A plurality (46%) of all Californians feels the same way.
The San Jose Mercury News reports:
Forty-six percent of California voters say we’ve gone too far in allowing white nationalists to demonstrate while 43 percent say the rallies should not be restricted and 11 percent had no opinion.
And Democrats, especially, appear to be grappling with the complex issue in deep blue California.
In the wake of violent protests from Charlottesville to Berkeley, more than half, a full 53 percent of California’s Democratic voters, believe we have gone too far in allowing those demonstrations. Some 50 percent of California Republicans, meanwhile, believe the right to demonstrate should not be restricted, compared with 39 percent of Democrats.
The poll’s results reportedly surprised the pollster who conducted it. “I would have thought the liberals would be defending the right to demonstrate in general,” Mark DiCamillo told the Mercury News.
According to the Sacramento Bee, which reported the polling data in further detail, 58% of those describing themselves as “liberal” said that America had “gone too far in allowing white nationalist groups to hold public demonstrations.”
