In 1978, the ACLU took a controversial stand without spending a dime speech by defending a neo-Nazi group that needed to march via the Chicago suburb of Skokie, the place many Holocaust survivors lived. The notoriety of the case triggered some ACLU members to resign, however to many others, the case has come to signify the ACLU’s unwavering dedication to precept.
Unwavering dedication to precept?! I don’t assume so. In actual fact, saying the ACLU has “wavered” is an understatement. They’ve collapsed…cratered…surrendered…and determined to like Large Brother. In one of the crucial disgusting tales lined on False Flag Weekly Information this week, the venerable defenders of free speech even for Nazis in Skokie decried the potential “hate speech” that may outcome if “free speech absolutist” Elon Musk fires the Twitter censors.
The ACLU, of all folks, ought to know that the Structure doesn’t make an exception for so-called hate speech. Goose-stepping brownshirts carrying swastika flags via Skokie is perhaps thought of hate speech or a minimum of hated speech, however that doesn’t imply such marches needs to be outlawed. Quite the opposite, unpopular disturbing speech deserves essentially the most safety—assuming it doesn’t violate legal guidelines towards libel, slander, threats, “combating phrases,” and the opposite exceptions to protected speech which have been labored out through the lengthy historical past of the First Modification jurisprudence.
Because the ACLU certainly is aware of, there’s far much less motive to ban hate speech on Twitter than to ban Nazis from marching in Skokie. Not like the Skokie goose-steppers, who compelled their message on neighborhood residents who didn’t wish to see or hear it however couldn’t keep away from it, folks posting offensive protected speech on Twitter will not be bothering anybody however the individuals who select to learn their Tweets. In case you don’t wish to see Trump’s smarmy obnoxious Twitter narcissism, don’t subscribe to Trump. In case you can’t deal with the Babylon Bee calling a gender-confused man a person, don’t subscribe to the Bee. Neither Trump nor the Bee is marching via your neighborhood chanting their disturbing messages over a bullhorn and waving indicators saying disturbing issues. They’re tweeting out messages solely to those that wish to obtain them.
Apparently, the ACLU doesn’t assume you’ve gotten the best to speak via Twitter with individuals who wish to hear what you must say…a minimum of not in case your views don’t adhere to the liberal oligarchs’ celebration line. So don’t complain to the ACLU if the Division of Homeland Safety’s Disinformation Squad kicks down your door since you tweeted one thing favorable about Vladimir Putin. Don’t snicker—it’s already taking place in Ukraine:
However wait—did you say DHS has a Disinformation Squad? That’s proper. It’s led by a Mary Poppins wannabe named Nina Jankowicz who enjoys singing about how anybody who disagrees along with her should be Russian.
So when the DHS goons kick in your door as a result of they don’t like your Twitter feedback, will they sing songs from Julie Andrews musicals whereas they’re dragging you off to the dungeon within the basement beneath the basement of the American equal of the Azovstol Ache Manufacturing facility in Mariupol? “Cease, please cease! I’ll do something, I’ll say something, simply cease singing that hideous track!” you’ll scream.
However there might be no one there to listen to you. And no one to learn your Tweets as you cry out in muffled screams of indescribable struggling in 280 characters or much less.
And don’t even consider complaining to the ACLU.
