Shut up! I don’t like what you’re saying!
Increasingly, this is the approach Americans — Americans! — are taking to deal with speech they don’t like. Whether this involves the hateful speech of would-be dictators, the words of electronic schoolyard bullies, or just folks with whom we disagree on government policy, the New American Way is to stop them from talking. Extra points if we can protect our own speech while squelching theirs.
