Can Speech Incite Violent Action?

from Ben Shapiro:

When we broaden the definition of incitement, freedom suffers

Over the past week, we’ve heard the media pitching one particular narrative nonstop: the story that President Donald Trump’s rhetoric has resulted in increased violence. We heard it in the aftermath of a spate of attempted bombing attacks against Democratic targets by a Floridian nutjob, and we heard it in the aftermath of a shooting attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue by an outspokenly anti-Trump white supremacist.

Is there truth to the charge?

To determine whether there is, we’ve first got to consider the question more broadly: When is speech related to violence? read more

SPLC is the Arbiter of Acceptable Speech

Every position the Southern Poverty Law Center disagrees with is considered hate speech yet all these sites rely on them to determine was content is and is not acceptable. Ridiculous!

from the Daily Caller:

EXCLUSIVE: FACEBOOK, AMAZON, GOOGLE AND TWITTER ALL WORK WITH LEFT-WING SPLC

Four of the world’s biggest tech platforms have working partnerships with a left-wing nonprofit that has a track record of inaccuracies and routinely labels conservative organizations as “hate groups.”

Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter all work with or consult the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in policing their platforms for “hate speech” or “hate groups,” a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found. read more

Islamic Extremists Meet in the Shadow of the Capital

It’s happening right under our noses, yet it is getting literally no press – virtually no coverage at all.

And why? The reason is simple. Between President tweet-storm and all the sexual deviants in our midst, the air is continually being sucked out of the room. The main stream media is obsessed with salaciousness – the juicier the story, the better. Substance is an afterthought, if it’s a thought at all. The world could be on fire, and that story would be relegated to the second page if it was insinuated that Trump once hit on Taylor Swift – or some such nonsense.

Okay – what is it that is so important?

A group of about 100 America-hating Islamic radicals recently got together to discuss their desire to force us “infidels” into accepting Islam. And by “right under our noses,” I mean just that. They met last weekend at a Holiday Inn Express in Springfield, Virginia – right outside Washington D.C.

Don’t you just love that they chose a place that represents quintessential Americana, like Holiday Inn. I can see the new ad campaign now. “I’m not really a jihadist scumbag – but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express.”

“At a gathering of Islamist extremists near Washington, D.C. last weekend, speakers from Maryland, Virginia, Texas and Pakistan railed against America calling it the “land of infidels.” read more

Podcast – Harvard University may be the Most Leftist College in America

Upon returning from a college event with my son and seeing some of the leftist clubs represented there, I decided to dedicate a podcast to some of these radical ideals.

It took me no more than 10 minutes on a single website, The College Fix, to find four separate articles, involving only Harvard – demonstrating what a leftist swamp it has come to be.

What I discovered is what I had already assumed – that if one is a conservative, you best not set foot on the campus of Harvard University. read more

Speech is Only Free When the Mob Allows It

I still remember the first time I went to Stone Mountain, Georgia. A friend worked at the theme park there, and I was going to visit him. I drove my motorcycle from my apartment in Clarkston, maybe five whole miles, and despite getting a gazillion miles to the gallon, I ran out of gas anyway. I had to hitchhike to the park where my friend and I did the whole gas can thing. Good times. Since then, I have gone back several times.

I recall what a beautiful place it is and was awestruck by the site of the Confederate Mount Rushmore – the Confederate Memorial carved into the side of Stone Mountain. Unless you are a total politically correct weenie and believe it would be a micro-aggression to merely gaze upon it, you really should see it. I did a podcast last summer regarding this very subject, and it’s still relevant today. It’s segment 2 at this link. read more
