Hate Speech

Postby Zarniwoop » Mon Apr 23, 2018 1:33 pm

First there was the idiotic notion of hate crime.

Then the even more ludicrous notion of hate speech.

At first it gave the Enlightened a way to ridicule and try to shut down speech they don't like (see college campuses across America)....but even more disturbingly now it is getting codified into law across the world.


Just read of a story in the UK where a couple years ago a 13 year old boy was tragically killed riding his bicycle. Another teen posted the lyrics to a rap song on the boy's social media to pay tribute to the boy. As you might guess, the rap song contained vulgarity including the N-word.

The now 19 year old teen was accused and found guilty of hate speech. The teen now has to wear an ankle bracelet monitoring their movement and pay a fine of roughly $1,000.







God help us if this sort of insanity ever finds its way into the US Justice System.

The UK is truly devolving into a police-state dystopian hell. There's something so self-fulfilling about the phenomenon in that country that it's almost shocking.

I was talking to someone today and noted that it was better before the PC police showed up and started correcting everyone's speech. Back then you knew where everyone stood on matters of race and basic respect for others. Now everyone is so careful about how and what they say, you never know who the real idiots are....

We're getting closer the utopian society we saw in Demolition Man (great 90's action flick)

I’ve maintained this for ages. The best way to show the sheer stupidity of the KKK or Antifa or similar groups is simply to let them speak. They do more damage to their cause then anyone who tries to criticize them on rational grounds using valid arguments.
