Progressive's "support" for free speech

Interesting.  The OWS Exposed web site that documents all the crime that's been occurring at the OWS rallies has been under cyber attack.  Currently the DNS maps the URL to (the loopback address - this is the one that points you to your own computer).  Nice.

Interesting how we're always lectured on the necessity of being tolerant by these same sort of people.  As with "hate speech" (speech that Progressives don't like) and campus speech codes (rules to suppress same), we see the limits of tolerance.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
- C.S. Lewis
