Free Speech At Commentary?

Nov 13 2012 @ 4:37pm

Under fanatic minicon, JPod? You’ve got to be kidding. 23 years after I wrote “The Conservative Case for Gay Marriage” at TNR, someone is fired for doing the same – in a thoughtful, intelligent way – at Commentary. JPod’s side of the story here. More here. I believe the dude was fired for offering a conservative case for marriage equality, which violated JPod’s own view of it as a libertarian project.

But firing a person just an hour after a post? Smells like neoconservatism to me – the kind that admits no error and tolerates no dissent.
