Abstract

When do people support freedom of speech? Are some groups more likely to tolerate controversial speech than others? Understanding ideological variations in speech tolerance has theoretical implications for understanding similarities and differences between people on the political left and right. Crawford and Pilanski (2013; hereafter CP) provide a nice empirical contribution to this research question as a replication and extension of our earlier research (Lindner & Nosek, 2009; hereafter LN). CP interpreted their results as showing a different effect than LN. However, we understand CP’s results to be a conceptual replication of LN’s.

Keywords: freedom of speech, ideology, tolerance, liberals, conservatives
