Free speech is on its way out ...

So much for free speech … and the ability to criticize the messiah.

Posted on the SF Chron’s message board by Chron management/editor regarding the appointment of Leon Panetta as head of the CIA (oh Lord, where did that one com from?)

“Comments that criticize the judgment of the person who made the appointment will be considered to be a hate crime by the editorial policy of SF Chron.”

Okay so it's okay to call Bush dumb because he's a white male and it's not okay to criticize the messiah because he is a black male? So people of color, whatever color other than white, are off limits because criticizing them is a hate crime?

We are in trouble. I wish I spoke German and had dual citizenship. I'd enjoy living abroad for about four years ...
