Conservatives for years have accused the Left of employing hateful labels and reputation-smearing on Conservatives to silence their ideas. Todd Starnes opened his most recent show by addressing the tactics the Left uses to frame conservatives as "haters," which can lead to alternative voices from the mainstream media being censored.

"They're telling us that speech that is conservative, and maybe you have a differing opinion...so what does the Left do? They label it 'hate,' because they know that's almost an indefensible position for you. Because then you have to turn around and you have to prove you're not a hater, that you're not a racist. That's what the Left wants you to do, but you can't buy into all of this," Starnes said.
