Hate Speech is Vital 2

The biggest argument against hate speech is that hate speech was used in Nazi Germany.

So-called knowledgeable people say that it was hate speech that led to the persecution and killing of the Jews.

I disagree.

The problem with Nazi Germany was not that there was hate speech but that there was not enough hate speech.

Had the German people not been cowed into a state of timidity, they could have easily engaged in hate speech against the government (Hitler) which had a monopoly on hate speech.

And exercised it.

Consequently, no one was able to challenge the government. Ergo, millions upon millions of Jews, and other people, were executed.

The same will happen here in the United States if this current rage of political correctness and crusade against hate speech is ultimately successful.

Is that what you want?

That is where we are heading.

We are not heading toward Nirvana and a perfect world.

No, not at all.

Hate speech is integral to a thriving republic.

Empires not so much.

In fact hate speech is the enemy of empire because empires, being fundamentally and historically immoral, are predicated upon obedience – blind obedience.

In empire, blind obedience and allegiance must be given to the top guy.

No one must question war and the killing of innocent people which the top guy promotes because a) he must answer to his backers, and b) he’s too incompetent to wage peace.

No one must question theft, plunder, and robbery of other nations.

No one must question the hate he wages against a minority group to cover for his failings.

In empire, criticism of the top guy is considered hate speech.

Whatever the top guy degrees is gospel. Any criticism of that gospel is hate speech.

One must not even point out that the cronies of the top guy are crooks.

That is considered hate speech.

A republic on the other hand welcomes hate speech.

A republic has no fear of hate speech because a republic is pluralistic.

A republic enjoys decentralized power.

A republic respects all peoples and gives all people a voice no matter how abhorrent.

A republic is not predicated upon fear.

A republic thrives on trust.

A republic is strong enough and big enough to accept an insult.

An empire is not so inclined.

An empire is petty and weak.

An empire is predicated upon fear and distrust.

An empire respects no one’s opinion and gives no one a voice no matter how small the voice.

An empire fears its people.

The leaders of the empire sequester themselves away behind walls.

Republic is open and has no need of walls.

There was once a time in America, when America was a republic, when America did not fear its citizens, when America tolerated people with a different voice, when America tolerated hate speech.

That time in America is gone.

America, the republic is gone.

America is now a ruthless, petty empire that beats the living tar out of anyone who even slightly challenges its dominance.

America now brooks no dissent.

It locks away in perpetuity truth speakers like Julian Assange.

Like Nazi Germany.

This is not a pretty sight.

Hate Speech is Vital

I found out yesterday that I was banned from Twitter.

Of course, it’s not that big a deal for me because I hardly ever got on Twitter.

The column you’re reading right now has been automatically posted to Twitter for more than a year.

No more.

I only found out about the ban by accident.

Of course, they don’t tell you why you were banned.

They just do it.

I’m going to file an appeal only to find out why.

And I told them that.

But why should I have to file an appeal at all?

Why should I have even been banned in the first place?

Technically my site was suspended permanently, I assume, because I was engaging in hate speech or abusive language.

What is hate? What is abusive?

Well, you can read all the columns here and decide for yourself if I was using hate speech.

Let’s cut to the chase. I was.

Proudly so.

I certainly do you use hate speech when it comes to members of the Harvard Cartel, who have destroyed the United States of America.

And I do think that all Harvard and Ivy League graduates (and New Ivy League graduates) and their sycophants should be held accountable for this destruction, even though they may not have materially participated in that destruction, just as we hold the German people accountable for the Third Reich.

Oh, we shouldn’t generalize, correct? Is that the clichéd response you’re going to give to me? Forget about it. Without generalization we don’t get out of bed in the morning. The only reason you get out of bed in the morning is because every other morning that you got out of bed, you were able to stand up on terra firma.

All the German people (excluding the Jews, Gypsies, and mentally infirm) benefited from the Nazi regime just as all Harvard graduates benefitted from the dysphoric society imposed upon us by members of the Harvard Cartel.

And, to be quite frank, I believe in hate speech.

I am not going to shy away from that.

I think hate speech is essential to maintaining a healthy republic, which we so obviously do not enjoy anymore. I think there’s a direct correlation between the implementation of political correctness and the destruction of our republic.

Of course there is. In Nazi Germany if you criticized (hate speech) Adolf Hitler, you went to the concentration camp.

Okay, I hear ya, babe. Adolf Hitler was only one person. What about groups? OK, in Nazi Germany if you criticized the Gestapo, you went to the concentration camp.

Were there good Gestapo? I’m sure there were. So fucking what? We punished them all.

By the way, when we bombed Dresden and killed approximately 200,000 people (the real number, not the fake number our government gives), were there good Germans living in Dresden? I’m sure there were. So fucking what? We killed them anyway.

If our republic is to survive, we need to get rid of this political correctness.

And we need to accept hate speech as part of free speech.

There are plenty of things to hate in this world.

We should hate the actions of the US government which prosecutes nonstop war and in so doing kills millions of people around the globe.

We did it in Vietnam. We did it in Iraq. We did it in Afghanistan. We did it in Libya. We did it in Syria.

We also did it in Indonesia. That’s right, our CIA helped Suharto kill one million Indonesians. Crime? They were suspected of being communists.

We should hate the actions of the United States government which currently sends war armaments to Ukraine in order to kill Russians – especially since it was the US that provoked the Russians to invade Ukraine in the first place.

We should hate the actions of the United States government which currently can’t muster the money to fix homelessness.

We should also hate them for creating homelessness in the first place by outsourcing jobs, permitting gambling on demand, and aiding and abetting the smuggling of drugs into our country.

We should hate the actions of the United States government which created the student loan mess and then doesn’t have the guts to clean it up.

We should hate the actions of the United States government which allows millions of illegal immigrants across our borders.

We should hate the actions of United States government which has caused the inflation that we currently suffer under.

We should also hate the Senators and Representatives in Washington DC who don’t give a damn about this country.

Let’s not forget about the doofuses in the Harvard Cartel who have hijacked our government, polarized wealth, and stolen billions and billions of dollars in order to celebrate themselves.

Or are we to just sit back now and only say pleasant things about people?

Are we never to speak out with anger against people who are robbing us of our freedom and our future?

Is it hate speech to speak the truth about other people?

When Thomas Paine wrote Common Sense was he engaging in hate speech.

He certainly was.

Hate speech is the price we pay for freedom and individual liberty.

PS Have you noticed that our government which deplores and bans hate speech has no problem running around the globe killing people en extremis. In fact, they love it.

The Phony Battle

I’m sure I wrote something akin to this piece before, but let me try again.

Try not to view American politics as right versus left.

It’s tempting to do so, especially when the frothing dogs of corporatism get you riled up.

It’s doubly tempting when you are young and raging with hormonal energy.

Instead rotate the mainstream paradigm ninety degrees and view American politics as big versus small.

Aha, the world begins to make sense as you ask which party and which policies will make government more responsive to the average Joe.

Currently, none of them do.

Both parties have been co-opted by the thugs from Corporate America.

That’s the truth, baby.

The double truth is that none of the talk show hosts who speak on mainstream media represent you either.

Do you really think the powers that be are going to permit Rush Limbaugh to be worth six hundred millions dollars unless they own him?

Do you really think the powers that be are going to permit Sean Hannity to be worth three hundred millions dollars unless they own him?

People with money, fame and voice might get the wrong idea and say something useful.

The same can be said for any talk show host on the left.

Do you really think the powers that be are going to permit Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon or Rachel Madow to be worth millions unless they own them?

All these people are stooges and puppets of the New World Order.  It’s a grand game for your amusement.  They will play the right against the left while the real robbery of America goes down.

The very last thing the elites want is for citizens on the right and left to get together because that would spell curtains for them.  And you do have much to get together about – your freedom.

Your freedom is being robbed in plain sight with your full participation.

You’re being bulldozed into serfdom by the elites in both parties.

The small town conservative has nothing to fear from the small town hippie.  You both want the same thing.

You want an end to the constant war machine that the US has become.  You want to raise your children in the way you see fit.  You both want government to stop spying on you.  You both want jobs for Americans.

Isn’t that enough to come together for?

The issues of gay rights and other social issues, while important, are small potatoes when compared to your freedom and liberty.  Yet the media heightens these issues in order to divide you.

So what do you do?

Let’s begin with a paradigm that describes what has happened in America.  Rather than the traditional seesaw with the left and the right playing off each other, see this instead.

You and your friends stand on one side of a gazebo; your counterparts on the opposite end of the political spectrum stand on the other side.  All of you stretch your hands above your head.  You are supporting the roof of the republic.  Some of you are obviously closer to the center than others, but you are all important in holding up the roof.  If too many people in your community go away, the roof comes down.

Now, sitting atop the roof are the corporate fat cats of neoconservatism and neoliberalism.  These parasites aren’t helping you hold up the roof; they are pushing the roof  down – upon you and the American people who the roof protects.

To achieve their goal, which is total submission of the American people, the fat cats employ their wealthy media commentators to attack roof holders on the right and left.  They pick off the people on the fringes who are helping you support the roof.  They label them as nuts.  Gradually the media cons you into abandoning them. Yet these people aren’t your enemy; they are in the trenches beside you helping support the roof that protects the people.

If you continue to play this game, the roof over the people will collapse.

So in this manner, the fat cats have demonized fringe people from the right and left.

They have gone after the John Birch Society, and they have gone after radicals from the left such as Black Lives Matter.  The people from the right are called Nazis, and the people on the left are called Marxists.

The goal is to convince you to abandon these important supporters of what our republic is all about.  Their expression of speech, however crazy you deem it, is the pillar holding up the roof.  When you dismiss these speakers, you take down the edifice of free speech.  What you ultimately will be left with is a few skinny pillars in the center.

As we can imagine a few skinny pillars in the center isn’t enough to support the roof.

Allowing people to speak regardless of content is the antidote to political correctness. Your tolerance of free speech and that of others is the strut that supports the roof of the republic. No society ever died by someone stating a contrary opinion.

Fascism does not begin with free speech; fascism begins by saying nothing.






Free Speech and the Genie

What can you say about free speech and the internet these days? How many times can you say free speech is free speech?

It’s a waste of time to keep talking when you say it once and the people you are talking to refuse to listen. Then you become the one who belongs in the loony bin.

These days, Google, Twitter and Facebook are synonymous with the United States government – a cruel, runaway, intolerant global killing machine that isn’t in the business of listening.

They don’t care.

Every age has its decaying orthodoxy, and our age is no different. Just as the Catholic Church five hundred years ago punished, condemned or excommunicated heretics such as Galileo and Copernicus for stating the obvious, so too do the leaders in our digital age shut down alternative media for daring to challenge their supremacy.

Just as the earth ceded its supremacy to the sun as the center of the solar system, so too did The New York Times cede its supremacy to alternative media as the paper of record, the bastion of truth . It’s tough for the elites to accept this. For too long they have had their way with the people. For too long they have been able to suppress legitimate movements with their fables.

This is no longer the case, and so they proclaim people like Alex Jones and other authors of alternative media sites as heretics, deliverers of fake news. When that does not suffice, these cardinals of the millennial church – Google, Twitter and Facebook – band together and excommunicate them.

In a word, they ban them. This was what excommunication meant in the Catholic Church; this is why it was such a big deal. In those days, the Church was the truth.

But truth can not be stopped.

Just as the printing press ushered in the Renaissance, so will the digital age and internet usher in a new Renaissance. It can not be stopped.

By punishing, condemning and self-censoring Galileo and Copernicus, the Catholic Church legitimized them. They were in effect saying: These people have something important to say, otherwise why would we be banning them?

So too with Alex Jones, Abby Martin, Peter Lavelle, the Hagmanns, Richie Allen, Jimmy Dore and many, many others. By banning them, Google, Twitter and Facebook legitimize them.

The genie is out of the bottle.
