Thank Goodness Merrick Garland’s Not on the Supreme Court

Garland is directing the FBI to investigate putative threats by parents against school boards.

Many of us thought the answer to “bad speech” was “more speech.” That is what is implied by the First Amendment. What Garland demonstrates is the opposite—outright fear that parents' complaints may actually be justified and therefore they must be squelched by brute force (the threat of—or actual—incarceration), not “more speech.”
