[RSSImport display=”5″ feedurl=”https://buzzamerica.com/feed/?” use_simplepie=”true” displaydescriptions=”true”] Show Comments 22 Comments Wallace on July 1, 2021 NO SPEECH OR WRITING SHOULD BE A C R I M E ! Bullshit ! Remember the 2nd supports the 1st Amendment. maria wennink on July 4, 2021 I totally agree with you!! No speech or writing should be called crime!! It is a ludicrous and insane, but then what can you expect from the democrats!! Debbie on July 2, 2021 Who is going to define it? Brian Hogan on July 5, 2021 The problem with defining hate speech is that any speech can be considered hate speech. For example, you greet someone on the street with “Good morning sir” and that person takes offense because, at that moment, they identify as a woman, and demand that you call them ma’am, even though “it’s” wearing grungy overalls, sporting a bald head, and a beard down to “it’s” bellybutton. And since you have offended “it”, you have committed a hate crime by using hate speech, and must be punished. In reality, there is no actual definition for the term “hate speech” because any speech can be labeled “hate speech”. For example: We The People, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America, would be an example of “hate speech”. Doug Litchfield on July 2, 2021 Debbie, It will be the same ones who invented it. You know, the woke folks who always try to get government to fix their loose screws when no one buys into lunacy. Sure hope I didn’t boowaayee anyone explaining it this way. If I did, they can call someone who cares. Sally on July 5, 2021 If the woke folks get to decide we are going to be required to walk aroudn with our penis out and a hole in the back of our pants. Giddy up cowboy. Cyn on July 2, 2021 Soooo who would be put in “charge” to decide what is and isn’t hate speech??? Nope, no matter what each and every citizen has the right to express themselves and each and every citizen has the right to either agree or disagree with what was said. The U.S. isn’t China “yet” but allow the socialist woke snowflakes have their way and it will be. Ja Bru on July 2, 2021 It would only be a crime for the Working American Tax Payers, not the Scum Bags of DC and many state Capitol’s. such as Calif. and NOT For; BLM, Antifa, Pelosi, Schumer, Obumers, Dead Head Biden’s, Minions. And the Soros paid lackies of Facebook, Google, Twitter and the CCP Puppets of China and Russia. Michael Smith on July 2, 2021 Hell, no speech should be a crime, our 1st Amendment gives all speech a right, no exceptions. Those who believe free speech should be a crime, were born snowflakes, and need to grow up. The, ” Everybody gets a Trophy ” days are over with. Grow up Marxist, America is on the rise, and we will win. IndependentAmerican on July 2, 2021 Both words and actions have consequences, The first amendment is NOT a blanket ‘Get out of Jail Free’ card. There are many examples of things you cannot say or write without legal issues. Libel laws, sedition and anything that puts the public in unnecessary danger like yelling ‘Fire’ in a theater are all examples of ‘speech’ that are forbidden by law. Sally on July 5, 2021 Actually I disagree with all of those restrictions. R Walker on July 2, 2021 Those that don’t think “hate speech” should be a crime have never had hateful speech (harassments) spewed at them or they are the ones spewing “hate speech”. If just your cronies want to spew hate amongst yourselves, then so be it, but if publicly spewed then there needs to be consequences. Using “hate speech” to incite more hate or violence needs to have consequences. Sally on July 5, 2021 What a fricking whiner! Really are your little baby feelings hurt that easily? If you are white and especially white male you have been listening to non-stop hate speech from the left and democrats for the last 50 years. you can bet that none of it will be listed as hate speech. Just like the countless number of time a black male has clobbered some old white or Asian guy with a brick or bat does not get listed as a hate crime. Heck in a honest world the Black lives Matter organization would be listed as a hate crime and a terrorist organization. In american today we have a government that says white supremacists are the biggest threat despite have watched years of BLM and Antifa violence. the problem will always be the definition and identification of hate speech just like the problem is the definition and identification of hate crimes. I grew up have to list to ridiculous polish jokes. They should have been listed as hate speech, but we both know they never will. If a pretty girl walks down the street pretty darn close to naked would that be hate speech? If a really fat ugly girl walks down the street pretty darn close to naked would that be hate speech? the problem will always be the definition and identification. So just stop while you are ahead no hate speech rules. Doug Litchfield on July 2, 2021 Seems we already have laws covering what you so eloquently explained. This new improved one would blanket cover anything some twit deemed offensive to their bubbled world. Sally on July 5, 2021 Well i believe pretty much everything that a liberal or democrat says is offensive and hate speech so make them all shut or or go to prison. I fact when I hear people say: ” I always vote liberal” or “are you a climate deigner” I pretty much see it as absolute hate speech. Another one would be Voter ID is racist because minorities do not have access to ID. What kind of hateful racist thinks minorities do not have ID. It is clearly hate speech. The problem will always be the definition and identification of hate speech. Wallace on July 2, 2021 If speech of any type is made a crime, What next ? Being RUDE to a “Karen” or a nosy neighbor. Or being rude as deemed by anyone, as I am one Proud Rude ornery son-of-a-bitch.. Here is some hate speech: I Hate Green Midgets eating okra while wearing short pants and combat boots. There R. Walker go report me or come show me a consequence. Sally on July 5, 2021 Oh Wallace; I too Hate Green Midgets eating okra while wearing short pants and combat boots. But what really gets me angry and offended is Green Midgets eating okra and onion soup while wearing Hawaiian shirts, short pants, knee high socks, sunglasses, and combat boot. Especially if they are riding a yellow fat wheeled bike. I know I know You want to know what I have against the color Yellow don’t you. I don’t know, but I find it offensive and that is all that really matters isn’t it. just thinking about it makes me want to go mostly peacefully protest somewhere. just to set the record straight I am also offended by the term “mostly peaceful protest” Cliff on July 2, 2021 If “hate speech” becomes a punishable CRIME, that my friends will just be the beginning, as ALL speech against the communist “agenda”, and the FRAUDULENTLY “elected” chinese communist bought and owned TREASONOUS scum, infesting OUR White House , Oval office and CON-gress, will be banned. The more the democommunists and their “woke” freaks in this country keep getting their way, the closer we become to be “converted” into a communist-controlled, third-world, banana republic cesspool, where neighbors are “spied on”, then are paid “rewards” to “tell” on neighbors that disagree with the communist agenda. WAKE UP AMERICA before we no longer HAVE a country. Bernadette on July 2, 2021 If it is on radio or t.v.. turn the channel; if it is on a website, leave the website; if a person is in front of you, walk away. What is wrong with people?? Marissa Thomas on July 3, 2021 Another moronic scenario. Today…. “blacks should go to hell” (just to have an example that won’t ban me). Something terrible to say and shouldn’t be allowed, criminalize it. Tomorrow…. “you look fat”, hate speech, hurt someone feelings…. criminalize it. BS! If the country wouldn’t be full of libs pansies this wouldn’t be happening. Stevo on July 5, 2021 When something is the truth , especially with evidence all around for all to see , that certainly shouldn’t be a crime ! BwaHa on July 6, 2021 If we give up our rights we’re going to be owned. Comments are closed.
