A local woman's views on the freedom of speech and political correctness

Dear Editor,

Among the most precious of American freedoms is the freedom of speech. I believe this freedom is under attack by a movement called "Political Correctness." It attempts to eliminate opponents by shaming into silence those of differing beliefs and opinions. The self-named “tolerant” define tolerance as “you agree with me.” Objection to a particular behavior or lifestyle now equals hate, and anyone bold enough to voice a differing opinion is labeled a bigot or a racist or is accused of waging war against women.
