Mild annoyance.

When I read opinions or listen to the news, it seems to me that when those on the far right disagree vehemently with someone on the right, they are held up as an example of someone exercising their right to free speech. When someone on the far right does the same thing, they are accused of trying to suppress opposing viewpoints. It doesn't seem to matter which extreme has the political power at the time, either.

I hold the firm opinion that it is no less an exercise of free speech when someone decides to protest things like Tim Robbins's nasty little play than it is for him to make it in the first place. Even if it is full of crap. But hey, no one ever said such things had to be good. Look at Michael Moore.
