What The Hell, Liberals?

Ann Althouse wonders, with regards to the Duck Dynasty brouhaha:
Why is the left taking the narrow view of the concept of freedom? It's a general principle, not something you save for your friends. Like Paglia, I remember the broad 1960s era commitment to free speech. There was a special zeal to protect those who said outrageous things. Today, we're back to the kind of repression that in the 60s seemed to belong to the 1950s. What the hell happened?
The protesters took over, and became what they once protested against.
