    I thought Bandy’s response is quite apt actually.

    Your brand of politics only champions free speech if it doesn’t hurt your feelz.

    Something your God Boy Yiannopoulus has been criticising I.e. the concept of “hurt feelings”

    So what is it? Unconditional freedom of speech for all or only when it doesn’t make the right look bad?

    Is Andrew Costello a nice bloke?

    Most definitely.

    Are some people on Social Media being a bit precious for calling him out on using the term “disabled”?

    You bet your life.

    Is this an example of “PC gone mad”?

    Actually, No.

    Should we give a shit about this or the precious people who are uncomfortable with the term: “disabled”

    Nope.

    Enough said.

    Can you provide evidence to your claims? Otherwise you will get the response it deserves.

    What is a mental disability?

    It's either an intellectual disability or a mental illness. Both can co-exist but having one doesn't mean you have the other.

    Once again it's being turned into a left v right shambles.

    I suppose the next thing you'll say is that one end of the political spectrum is responsible for Down Syndrome.....

    The NY times? Really bro

    and this

    But it did incite Fox viewers.

    Within hours, invective filled my inbox. I received emails that promised I would be lynched, shot and raped, and Princeton’s department of African-American studies, of which I am a member, was so flooded with hate that the locks on the doors had to be changed.

    So his apparent hate mail is evidence of 'the right' being hypocritical on free speech.

    lol

    Lol! Are you really this dense? Of course it is! They threatened him with death and rape for exercising his free speech.

    How many people emailed that guy, where they republican or democrat? Does he have any proof of that number? How many people are needed to email him hate mail so we can say that they represent all conservatives?
