OMG Posters say it best

LBN-COMMENTARY by JOHN STOSSEL: We take free speech for granted in America, 
unlike elsewhere. The furor over that anti-Muslim video is the latest reminder of that. 
But freedom of speech is never safe, even here. Many colleges now impose
 “civility codes.” Civility is nice, but enforcing a “civility rule” against offensive 
speech would put an end to lots of useful provocative speech. As a University 
of North Carolina student put it, “A picture of Mitt Romney would offend 
70 percent of residence hall students.”
