Liberalism is tyranny. Tyranny to the senses and the passions and tyranny to the insanity of allowing inherently evil and corrupted views like white supremacy or Nazism to have their equal 'right' to propagate their views. "live and let live" can be sorely manipulated and taken advantage of.
The Nazis in Germany received funding from Americans while they were gearing up for WWII. These were not Liberal Americans, they were stout Republicans, eager to enlarge their fortune and power by spreading Fascism throughout the world.
dontreally, the Nazis restricted free speech, they were created (as near as dammit) for that very purpose and the more successful they were at restricting free speech the more financial backing they received. The Nazis emerged in a country that was desperate for hope, and the German establishment ensured that their message, the one eventually delivered by Hitler, was the only one to be heard by whatever means necessary. Read about the Wiemar Republic, it is one of the most important steps, and I cannot emphasise that enough, in the path to where we are now. Liberalism had nothing to do with the creation of Nazism, nor did free speech, greed driven war mongering had everything to do with that, and the eventual murder of millions and of civilians in the waging of WW2. Remember, that war was an absolute certainty before the Paris Peace Treaty was over, and everyone knew it.

During the Weimar republic and later during the war Germans had been subjected to an onslaught of conditioning that encouraged them to be decadant and lascivious so they essentially wouldnt pay attention or care to what could possibly be happening to their fellow citizens.
