How The Free Speech Wars Can Up-End
Americans’ Current Political Alliances

The Federalist, by Tom Lynch

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/12/2019 10:47:20 AM

We have entered a new era that is redrawing political battle lines. The widespread use of new communication technology has changed how Americans interact with one another and what they interact about. This can be seen most clearly in the fight between social justice progressives and free speech advocates on online platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. This fighting has cracked the traditional left-right political spectrum. The sustained efforts of “social justice warriors” (progressives who use identity politics to gain moral and social power) have ruined the reputations of many who identify as progressive due to their social and economic

Worth the read. And to see the scary ´intersectionality chart´!!! I´m not sure if he quotes Dr Jordan Peterson - Peterson is the a charter member of the "Dark Web". His refusal to bow to the Canadian compelled speech law - Bill C16 either sparked or threw gasoline on the Free Speech Movement 2 years ago. Peterson makes an excellent & reasoned argument for the necessity of free speech as the best method to keep a society free and prosperous.

The writer is much too optimistic in thinking that both sides of American society WANT to get along. They don´t. If free speech is controlled we will be living in the world of George Orwell so there is no doubt that free speech is abused by the left but the alternative is worse. Look at the comment section after any controversial topic. The leftists are the ones using foul language and belittling those who do not agree with them. A well-presented conservative point of view can not be accepted. Technology has not changed peoples´ manners all that much. I remember many spirited arguments in the Letters to the Editor section of papers and magazines. The difference was that the Editor could smooth out the language and the timing of next day responses usually tempered the heat of the response. Now you have dopes who can barely write being given immediate access to a wide ranging media and they can remain anonymous so self-control need not be employed. They are quick to lose their tempers and begin bashing heads so the problem as I see it is for people to the right to become better defensive head bashers.

You are right to a point #2. The radical Left in no way wants free speech. Their destructive ´theories´ of utopia teach that free speech is a weapon of the ´evil white patriarchy´ used to oppress the ´downtrodden´. Therefore they yell and swear at people who disagree with them. They promote ´hate speech´ laws which ban certain language & words. And now are implementing compelled speech. All this has been and is being inculcated in our youth - many of whom are now running the HR departments in big companies. We live in dangerous times - and we don´t even recognize from where the danger comes.

On its 46th anniversary, all three major networks (ABC, NBC, and CBS) ignored the March for Life in Washington, D.C., the largest pro-life event in the nation, opting instead to cover the feminist Women´s March rally. According to LifeNews, despite an estimated 100,000 people being in attendance at the pro-life march along with President Trump´s address to the crowd via video, the left-wing machines could not so much as "give a passing mention to the March for Life" during the Friday morning shows."It seems an anti-Trump march happening tomorrow is more interesting to the networks," (Snip)The networks never learn it

There was a day when patriotic Americans laughed off left wing lunacy and the incessant politically correct doctrine it produces — and look where that got us. Outspoken Hollywood actor James Woods warned in a tweet Thursday that newly elected socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez poses a greater threat to America than most realize. “This is the most dangerous person in America right now. Ignore her at your peril,” he tweeted alongside a picture of the congressman Thursday afternoon, hours after she delivered a record-breaking speech (more on that below) on the House floor Wednesday night criticizing President Donald Trump over the

RALEIGH -Hyo Suk George lived legally in the United States for nearly 20 years before she voted in her first election, coaxed to cast her ballot by an enthusiastic town council member at church.To register, she presented a green card, Social Security number and driver’s license — proof enough for the elections officials in Columbus County — then voted in 2008, 2010 and 2016. But on Thursday, George, 70, faced charges of illegal voting from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, for which she might have spent six months in prison.

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law. These people leak like a screen door in a submarine, mainly to CNN and MSNBC, the twin headquarters

A plan to ban the sale and possession of certain kinds of firearms and ammunition magazines backed by Virginia governor Ralph Northam (D) failed a vote in a house subcommittee on Thursday but awaits action in the state senate. By a vote of 4 to 1, Delegate Kathy Tran´s (D) HB 2492 failed to pass out of the committee. That effectively kills the proposal within the House of Delegates. However, an identical Senate bill, Senator Adam Ebbin´s SB 1748, is awaiting a vote in the Committee for Courts of Justice. The bills would make it illegal to "possess or transport

On Friday, as tens of thousands of Americans participated in the March for Life in Washington, D.C., Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) reintroduced his legislation to ensure that unborn children are protected under law from the moment of conception -- the Life at Conception Act -- and his bill to prohibit all federal funding of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States. "Each year, the March for Life calls on the powerful to protect life at its most helpless," said Sen. Paul, an M.D. in ophthalmology, in a statement. "What we say about the value of human life

President Trump relished special counsel Robert Mueller’s pushback of a BuzzFeed News report that claimed the president had ordered his former attorney to lie to Congress. Trump called it “a very sad day for journalism,” reminding his Twitter followers that the news outlet was also responsible for publishing an unverified dossier that contained salacious details about the president and his alleged links to Russia. “A great day for our country,” Trump ended the tweet.

CNN anchor John King was criticized after raising a question on Friday about second lady Karen Pence and her Secret Service protection. King was leading his “Inside Politics” panel discussion about the second lady´s teaching gig at a Virginia school that does not permit gay men and lesbians to be teachers, and Vice President Pence´s recent comments that criticism of Christianity is offensive, when the host raised eyebrows. “Does it matter that all taxpayers pay for housing?

President Trump’s re-election campaign said Friday it´ll send faux red bricks to the offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer until Democrats agree to fund a border wall. To raise money for the 2020 race, the Trump campaign is asking donors to chip in $20.20 for each fake brick, which will be sent to the Democratic congressional leaders amid the fight that underlies the extended partial government shutdown. “Since Chuck and Nancy keep stonewalling the president, we’ll send the wall to them, brick by brick, until they agree to secure the border,” said Brad Parscale,

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

In the latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Thursday, President Donald Trump may have suffered some among Republicans overall, but he saw a huge point gain in a different demographic breakdown, and an unexpected one by conventional wisdom. In early December, the poll had Trump’s approval rating among Latino adults at 31%. The results from the poll released Thursday show the president’s job approval among Latino adults at 50%. That is an astonishing 19 point swing. Prior results had less variance, with Latino approval numbers at 36% in their November 1st findings. It was 27% in the pollster’s mid-October survey.
