Most Americans understand the penalty for thought crimes on issues ranging from traditional marriage to affirmative action to American citizenship. Say the wrong thing, write the wrong thing, even think the wrong thing, or tweet the wrong thing — in referencing positions that were mainstream only a few years ago — and you’ll be publicly shamed in media.
