I’m conflicted, folks! Everyone knows that your favorite President is the biggest (the GREATEST!) advocate for the free speech guaranteed by our 1st amendment. But OUR GREATEST ALLY™ believes free speech is dangerous and must be limited by HATE laws. Must balance!

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.
“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.
We are told that China is an oppressive regime that doesn’t allow criticism from its people. But what regime does? In America you can criticize politicians, big corporations, “the rich”, capitalism, socialism etc. But criticize Jews, the actual ruling class, and this happens. https://t.co/AU8PmI4tTG— Mike Pej?inovi?

And now the Washington Post is straight up calling for abolishing the First Amendment. Written by a former State Department official too.— James Kirkpatrick (@VDAREJamesK) October 29, 2019
Again, journalists are the single greatest enemy of free speech. Without them, we’d have more liberty and be better informed. https://t.co/5FTyqxOBCb

Is saving the Consitution a compelling enough reason for anti-Semitism? As long as people have the freedom to criticize Jewish behavior, their crusade to abrogate our rights will never end. pic.twitter.com/Ffs8Sb0LGP— Curse (@cursedsalad) October 29, 2019

“Why America Needs A Hate Speech Law.”— Brittany Sellner (@BrittPettibone) October 29, 2019
What America really needs is to protect the First Amendment from the destructive, grubby little hands of mainstream media outlets like you. pic.twitter.com/dszbCEDrNQ
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.
