Democracy Ain't Beanbag

Jonathan Chait:

"But the whole premise of democracy is that rules need to be applied in every case without regard to the merit of the underlying cause to which it is attached. If you defend the morality of a tactic against Trump, then you should be prepared to defend its morality against any candidate. Now imagine that right-wing protesters had set out to disrupt Barack Obama’s speeches in 2008. If you’re not okay with that scenario, you should not be okay with protesters doing it to Trump."

"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."

This isn't whining
