  • When "Free Speech" Kills

    Every person who's ever misused arguments for free speech to defend Nazis or white supremacists  --  just so they could puff out their chests and apocryphally quote Voltaire with smug certitude  --  has some measure of Heather Heyer's blood on their hands.

The election of Barack Obama generated hope for a new progressive national agenda. The reality, however, has been a disappointment for many, and leaves open the question for those on the left - is voting for Obama in 2012 the best route to take? On this edition, we hear excerpts of a panel discussion at the 2012 Left Forum, titled “The 2012 Elections: Lesser Evil or Left Alternative?”

Special thanks to People of Color Organize.

Featuring:

Glen Ford, Black Agenda Report co-founder and editor; Margaret Kimberley, Black Agenda Report columnist; Suren Moodliar, Massachusetts Global Action coordinator.
