Is Socialist Rhetoric Hate Speech
Former US Democratic Party presidential candidate Howard Dean, a man never slow to pontificate on topics he does not understand, has gone on record as saying that "hate speech is not protected by the first amendment." Well Dean might have a point, but being known for embracing every wimpish meme that circulates among the hand wringing, breast beating, wailers and teeth gnashers, we have to ask "What does he define as hate speech".
In his recent outburst about protecting free speech by suppressing free speech, Dean was opposing a proposed speaking engagement for columnist Ann Coulter, whose ideas, which include controlled immigration, deportation of those in the USA illegally, and building border walls, are so offensive to Dean, that even the most fundamental freedoms cannot be allowed to endure if they allow those ideas to be expressed.
Dean no doubt believed he was striking a great blow against the fascists who would deprive us of our fundamental rights in trying to stop Coulter being heard by branding her words 'hate speech.'. However, hypocritical as any left wing stereotype, Dean wants to attack free sppech to suppress any ideas he disagrees with, while defending those who use their right to free speech to advocate genocide, mass murder, terrorism and the destruction of human society. Against all of that shite Ann Coulter's enthusiasm for a border wall looks pretty tame.
If Howard Dean is really all that deeply concerned about 'hate speech,' first he ought to provide a better definition than, 'its whatever I say it is'. Second, he ought to take an objective look at the policies promoted by people at the same end of the political spectrum as him. There he is likely find a lot more of it among socialists and liberals than among conservatives like Ann Coulter.
Recently we commemorated another Karl Marx Day, which is sometimes euphemistically referred to as May Day. This time, there were riots in Paris as “protesters” committed all sorts of vandalism, assault, and mayhem. In addition to the standard Che shirts and the like, there were actually people holding banners with Stalin’s face on it! These people have obviously heard from their lecturers in propaganda passed off as history that Stalin was a communist and being to thick and lazy to look up Stalin and learn what a brutal repressive tyrant he was, they worship him as a hero of the war angainst sanity.
In the past few months at UC Berkeley in particular, various Antifa groups have inflicted physical violence and verbal bouse against anyone they deem to be a fascist. Antifa apparently defines a fascist as anyone who disagrees with them aout it being OK to use violence to silence opposition. The Anftifa mobs have pepper sprayed women and hit men with bike locks. These folks certainly aren’t run-of-the-mill leftie wimps. Indeed, as Antifa has so helpfully told us, "Liberals get the bullet too."
This shouldn’t be particularly surprising. Going back through the twentieth century communists generally fall into two categories; 1) Mass-murdering, totalitarian dictators when in power and terrorists when not-in power; 2) Lying, conniving cunts who preach equality but are quick to suck up to the super-rich once they are within touching distance.
