We all know the sentiment out there to repeal the Second Amendment on the Left, but do any of you realize the sentiment to at least partially do away with the First Amendment as well? Many in the poll provided thinks that hate speech should be banned, but what is hate speech? Moreover, who will decide what it is? For example, is calling Trump a "Cheeto" hate speech? Is calling Trump a Dotard hate speech? Is pretending to hold his severed bloody head in your hand hate speech? Is Madonna saying she wants to burn Trump alive in the White House hate speech and should that be banned? If asked this same question, I'm sure most left leaning people would say no, it is OK, but if the same were done to Obama, my guess is the sentiment would swing the other way as it would be viewed as racist. You see, the kind of hate is what is important. Is it a good hate or a bad hate?
When asked if they think hate speech should be against the law, 48 percent said they think it should be against the law, while 31 percent said they think it should “be allowed.” Twenty-one percent of respondents answered with “did not know.” Decades of Left wing influence in education and the media have brought us to this point.
Add to this fact that mass media corporations like Google and Facebook have been accused of censoring speech simply because they may offend other politically on some level.
And then there are "safe zones" at universities across the US that don't allow political speech or ideas that may offend since they run contrary to Left wing ideology
Ideological safe spaces make those on the left and the right more extreme.
Of all people, Obama's Van Jones in the article is attacking these Left wing fascists on censoring free speech merely to silence political opposition. But Jones was rebuffed by many as they refused to heed his warnings.
What is the US becoming?
