Of course, they were never actually concerned about free speech. But the posture meant that anyone else who was more offensive and more brazen could displace them--provided they also adopted the "protect Christians" posture

I use to think Trump was Frankenstein's monster, but it's readily apparent that the monster is all the millions of people who have been conditioned by talk radio and GOP rhetoric over the last 40 years. Trump just happens to be one of them.
