In this country we have this thing called the First Amendment. No matter how vile and disgusting I may find someone's speech, that speech is still protected by the First Amendment.

The only time speech can cross the line is for a hard to prove "inciting a riot" or purposefully creating a harmful event, like yelling "fire" in a crowded theater. Those situation are rather narrow in scope.

However, the First protests our speech from the government. The police, or the FBI can't shut you down for making a speech. That doesn't mean an individual or non-government entity can't sue for damages that may have been caused by that speech. It also means you can be fired from your job. I heard that more than few of the Charlottesville white supremacist who let their faces get posted on Facebook came home to find themselves unemployed.

Sadly if we try to eliminate "hate speech" it will not stop there.

If speech that offends someone is not protected, then no speech is.

Your education in history is sorely lacking. *First the white men*?? Exactly when did that start because I must have missed it.

Did it start with our Founders? Noooo....they were white. What about our presidents? Nooo....they were white men. VPs? Our congress? Nooo....white guys. Voters? Nooo....men--white men, then black men, THEN women.

Our pastors? Priests? CEOs? Business owners? Property owners? Attorneys? Judges? NO! NO! NO!

So when exactly did this abomination against white men start?

That would be exactly the POINT !!! To you ?? Maybe so. To me, distasteful but less so. WHO get's to decide ?? Either ALL of our speech is protected, or none of it is.

You don't like the players taking a knee ?? Don't watch of attend an NFL game.

Don't want to see a flag burned ?? Don't attend whatever gathering it will take place or support the people involved.

Neither you nor I are under any obligation to attend, listen to or support any one we disagree with. Like wise we are free to do so for those people or groups we do support.

BUT !!!!!!!! The instant the government starts defining "exceptions" to free speech, we will only be a few years away from the next Nazi Germany, Soviet Union, or take your pick of any number of south American and/or African banana republics. Societies in which opposition voices are routinely extinguished and dictatorial rule become the norm. That would be such a terrible end to a nation that was in fact created by those same opposition voices !! King George called them traitors and insurgents. WE call them our founding fathers.

Even if you vehemently disagree with them, when someone stands up and says "I OBJECT !!!!" They really are being THE VERY BEST KIND OF AMERICAN.
Thanks from imaginethat
