Rants, politics, and thoughts on politics, technology, life,
and stuff from a generally politically conservative Baltimoron.

All speech is equal, but some is more equal than others...

Via Slashdot comes this article about people trying to DOS the Republican National Convention.

See, the internet is supposed to be the ultimate democracy, where nobody knows if you are a dog, ect. But if you dare hold certain views, like the U.S. should defend itself against terrorists, or people should get to keep more of their income, your voice doesn't matter and it should be shut down.

I think and hope that this kind of thinking - that certain viewpoints should be crushed - is not a mainstream liberal position. However, it seems fairly common for professors to be against conservatives on college campuses as well as those trying to get Instapundit fired for their lack of a sense of humor.

If they do try doing this, I hope that they have the full force of the law brought against them. Denial of service attacks are the technological equivilant of burning down a building, with the added issue of supressing speech.
