Who were the imperialists and interventionists and opponents of free speech in the early 20th century?  “Progressives”  and so-called “civil libertarians” like Clarence Darrow, who had this to say to those criticizing Woodrow Wilson’s war-mongering:

Any man who refuses to back the President in this crisis is worse than a traitor.

(New York Times, Sept. 16, 1917)
