The Free Press: Abolish The First Amendment

President Trump has designated the mainstream media as being The Enemy of the People. This article is a good example of why it has lost its legitimacy.

The Washington Post:

“When I was a journalist, I loved Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.’s assertion that the Constitution and the First Amendment are not just about protecting “free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate.” …

I think it’s time to consider these statutes. The modern standard of dangerous speech comes from Brandenburg v. Ohio (1969) and holds that speech that directly incites “imminent lawless action” or is likely to do so can be restricted. Domestic terrorists such as Dylann Roof and Omar Mateenand the El Paso shooter were consumers of hate speech. Speech doesn’t pull the trigger, but does anyone seriously doubt that such hateful speech creates a climate where such acts are more likely?

Let the debate begin. Hate speech has a less violent, but nearly as damaging, impact in another way: It diminishes tolerance. It enables discrimination. Isn’t that, by definition, speech that undermines the values that the First Amendment was designed to protect: fairness, due process, equality before the law? Why shouldn’t the states experiment with their own version of hate speech statutes to penalize speech that deliberately insults people based on religion, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation?”

There is no such thing as The Free Press.

The Free Press demands the censorship of its enemies. It can’t be The Free Press when it demands the power to silence its opposition because it is losing the debate in the online space. China isn’t nearly as big as big a threat to American speech as these people.

Proceed.

Go ahead and continue to undermine liberal norms. Every time a Facebook account is suspended or a YouTube channel is purged it further erodes the value of “liberal democracy” to a vast swath of the population. If you are going to censor us, why shouldn’t you be censored?

Feel free to tell the people that the federal government is going to overturn the First Amendment to censor the internet, have law enforcement go door to door to seize their guns, stop enforcing the immigration laws and use the power of the state to take children away from their fathers to “transition” them into child trannies. See what happens.

  1. Anytime tolerance of deviance is shown, anti-social elements use that opening to force more and more of it down our throats. But it’s not done in the name of freedom, because those anti-social scum don’t want you to have the freedom to even voice disapproval of their depravity. As their side is so inflexible, and their views are so destructive of our culture and civilization, the only effective tactic to use against them is to be as authoritarian as they are in repressing their opponents. They invite the control they wish to force on everyone else, in self-defense.

  2. The goyim know, so das juden lügenpresse demand that the very First Amendment of the U.S. Constitutional be nullified.

    Ernst Zündel the fearless German-Canadian truth teller about jewish-zionist power and influence predicted there would be a time that jews would go too far, and White gentiles in America would rise up and crush them. Mr. Zündel was correct about everything he said. Please let his prophecy come true.

  3. The lovely thing about any sort of “hate speech statutes” is that white people would not be given the opportunity to take advantage of them, despite the fact that we have more hate speech tossed at us than anyone else.

  4. Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post and Amazon manages the CIA’s cloud server. Prior to that, the CIA developed a program called Operation Mockingbird in the 1950s which recruited journalists to:
    “create an organization that concentrated on “propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world.”

    The very first journalist recruited was Philip Graham from The Washington Post. But, all of these events are probably just random coincidences. To suggest anything different is conspiracy theory, and, for good measure probably anti-Semitic.

    • The CIA also ‘weaponized ‘ the term “conspiracy theory ” to discredit critics and criticism of the Warren Commission’s findings pertaining to JFK’s assassination.

      It’s a well known fact that Anderson Cooper of CNN interned with the CIA while he was attending Vanderbilt University. “Mocking Bird” never ended. Look at all the former intelligence chiefs shilling for forever wars and an (((internationalist))) foreign policy on just about every cable and broadcast fake news channel.

  5. Those shrews maybe gone, the replacements will be worse! Gird your loins, they will never stop being destroyers of the entire human race…

  6. Never knew president blumpf was so nuanced. Unlike that awful parody account of blumpf, the real blumpf is wise like that latinx beezy and knows “how to play the game.”

    I have full faith blumpf will extoll the virtues of 1st amendment on the campaign trail while working behind the scenes for hate speech laws.

    That’s called 4D chess folks
