You have to look at it the way Bette Midler looks at it.
The conservative groups are full of hate. Liberal groups are full of social justice.
They don't see it as shutting down people in conservative groups, they see it as shutting down people in hate groups. They hate people in hate groups and support organizations that actively seek to silence, intimidate and ultimately eliminate them.
In her mind, you pass a law that isn't political, it's just anti-hate. And people on the left who hate people who hate will finally be able to destroy those people and there will be no more hate.
It sounds like gibberish, but it all makes since in Bette Midler's head.
Spot on, dead. Good analysis.
