Whiny white people and the "First Amendment Fallacy"

Roy Edroso Obama Speech, Trayvon Protests Lure Rightbloggers Into Another Week of Hilarious Minority Outreach Village Voice 07/21/2013 makes a good characterization of the perennial conservative whine that Political Correctness is depriving them of their free speech: "This is a classic example of the Rightblogger First Amendment Fallacy, whereby they think the Bill of Rights, in addition to allowing them to say stuff like this, also protects them from being laughed at for it."

The Christian Right love to make this particular kind of argument, which is a stock feature of White People Whining.
