He's closed out a lot of his social media accounts in fear. Not from the government, but from those who he offended with his free speech.

Actually you are 100% correct. Leftist Postmodernist theory hold that feelings of "traditionally disadvantaged groups" is more important that the truth of any idea. They hold that feelings are more important that rational truth! Falsehoods that make some people feel better are to be supported. Crazy!

So true. Actions based feelings (irrationally) are not sane. What does that say about our country, government and politicians?

And those believes are forced upon you. If you common sense during an argument with a Liberal you're a mean racist.

Liberal Logic: You have the right to Free Speech*

*You are only allows to talk about things I agree with, everything else is triggering and not allowed and I will hurt you to make you stop if I have to.

I hear people on both sides try to shut down speech that offends them. Have you heard of the organization called One Million Moms? They go around and complain about TV shows which they consider offensive, and try to get advertisers to stop financially supporting the show. I don't see that as much different than liberals who complain about speech that offends them and then try to get the speaker silenced.

Not disagreeing there, but there is a difference between petitioning a tv network and going into a full blown riot like in Berkly when Milo was there.

True. I don't support rioting, either.

It's one thing to be publicly ostracized or shunned because what you have to say is abhorrent to the vast majority of rational people (David Duke, Fred Phelps, Jeremiah Wright, etc.). That's how people who spew filth are *supposed* to be dealt with, ridiculed, marginalized, and ultimately ignored.

It's quite another when your opinion, no matter how much out in the weeds it may be, starts becoming *criminalized*. "Free" speech is just that, free. Liberty is about taking the good with the bad, because having the good is far and away more important that not having the bad. And because One man's 'hate speech' or 'seditious rhetoric' will *always* be another man's righteous activism.

In a world where "wrong-thinking" is punishable, and "right-thinking" is rewarded, who will be the one to decide which is which? Because that is the person you should most fear.

I agree, but as to your last paragraph, it's society as a whole that generally decides what is acceptable and what is unacceptable.

Orwell is a hero of mine. The Left has studied Newspeak. Limiting language and using "politically correct" terms (propaganda lies) is a crime against thought and freedom.

Hateful speech shouldn't be banned, but if you face negative consequences as a result (like a baker going out of business, hint hint), you have no one to blame but yourself.
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
Consequences, yes. Banned or illegal, no. People that call for speech codes are fascist, but people are allowed to respond with their own free speech when they hear things they disagree with. (Shouting fire in a crowded room or injurious slander, etc. are natural exceptions).

Thank you. That's often the case. First impressions are often that two people are polar opposites, but further discussion begins to reveal more commonalities than previously assumed.

What if she had refused to bake a cake for a KKK meeting instead? That couple had plenty of choices inc probably cheaper or free because of ppl wanting good guy status. It's creeping fascism. Private businesses treated as if they were govt services.
reply

I'm not saying the baker should be forced to bake the cake. I used to believe that, but I no longer do. As a private business, they have the right to turn away customers, whether they're gay, Christian, KKK, etc. But if they choose to do so, they face the consequences like boycotts, criticism and loss of business. Calling it "creeping fascism" doesn't quite seem warranted, though.

Not creeping fascism in terms of what *you've* expresed vis a vis the baker. Sorry for the confusion. Boycotts are one thing. Big brother is another. Trying to convince sponsors by legitimate means to stop advertising is a legit pursuit at times I wd think. It was dumb when the Dixie Chicks treated ppl not buying or wanting to hear their music because of political reasons a violation of free speech and it was dumb when Dr. Laura had her gripe.

Islam isn't a relgion. It's a Satanic death cult with an obscene political agenda, bent on world domination and subjugation of non-Muslims. There are no redeeming qualities about it, but you stupid, stupid liberal lemmings just keep telling yourself that they are like Lutherans, Catholics, etc etc. There is no explaining your willful stupidity, except for the fact that post modern liberalism is a mental disease.

Haha! You're hilarious!! XD

"Islam isn't a relgion."

Yes it is. Invest in a dictionary. It will serve you well.

"It's a Satanic death cult with an obscene political agenda, bent on world domination and subjugation of non-Muslims."

Haha! XDDD you're so funny!!

"There are no redeeming qualities about it"

Apparently there are, since so many Muslims live here among us, in peace.

"There is no explaining your willful stupidity, except for the fact that post modern liberalism is a mental disease."

XDDD hilarious! You think a political leaning is a mental disease!! Stop, you're killing me!! XDDD

Only a mentally ill person would defend a death cult that (routinely) throws homosexuals off buildings, mutilates the genitals of young women, amputates limbs for petty crime, engages in human trafficking, honor killings, suicide bombings of men, women and children, acid attacks, kidnapping, subjugation of non-believers, and the systematic oppression of women. All of this in 2017, mind you. Not 500 or 2000 years ago. It's going on right now around the world, including the USA. So spare us your utterly lame and intellectually limp comparison to something that happened in the Old Testament.

But you just keep telling yourself that those Satan worshiping barbarians are the same as any other group. Maybe you'll change your mind when some of your family dies as innocent bystanders, victims of the "Religion of Peace."
