4 Tard. Political hate speech is the most protected speech.

5 This is one of my favorite tactics of the left.

They have no idea whats in the constitution, and assume no one else does either, so they just make it up.

Which may have been a more effective method 20 years ago before you could pull up the constitution on your phone to show someone how stupid they fucking are.

The Department of Hate Speech, duh

10 Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

That's it. No exemptions for impolite, irreverent, uncomfortable, or gauche speech.

So fuck off, Cuomo.

Well, there are no carve outs in the constitution.

The supreme court has drawn some *very* narrow exceptions, all on grounds other than speech grounds (none on "hate speech" grounds).

Like inciting a riot (screaming "fire!" when there isn't one) or "fighting words" (a terrible SCOTUS decision) or inciting a crowd to violence "GO KILL THAT ____ OVER THERE!" (fill in the blank as appropriate)

If that's what he's saying than he is admitting that Islam is NOT a "religion of peace." Just the opposite; he's confirming that it is violent. All you have to do is provoke them and QED.

They cannot imagine that "liberty" or "freedom" or "rights" apply to people, causes, speech, and institutions they don't like.
In other words they want these freedoms for their own tribe and to fit their own uses but not any one else.
And this, of course, isn't freedom. But they are deluded into thinking it is.

1. Because it has become the essential resume listing in order to get into politics or the best restaraunts.

2. They want to understand enough of the current law so that they can use it against people to commit their social lawfare or create additional laws that conflict with the original one, creating cases that drag on for years and are lucrative.

I've also decided that getting into law school is now easier than getting into a beauty school. It has to be. There are a zillion laws schools now, and they all are full. They have become the Plan B or C of the permanent student class that we seem to be funding in masse.

No it doesn't.

"fighting words" have to be said to a person in a way that "any reasonable person" would be super duper offended and feel the need to defend their honor.

But it can't be about someone, it has to be *to* someone. So I can say "John Smith sucks homeless dudes cocks for fun" and generally I'm okay (assuming he sucks dick and I'm not slandering him), but if I go up to John Smith and call him a "cock sucker", I could get a ticket if my state had a law (like NH once did) about "insulting people in public"

Now, he still wouldn't be justified in hitting me or anything...

Frankly, its an affront of the 1st amendment and SCOTUS should overturn that decision with as much haste as possible.

124 Ah, here it is - past Constitutional brilliance from Cuomo:

Cuomo was debating Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore
on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. Near the end of the
back-and-forth and after Moore argued that rights cannot be handed down by men, Cuomo blurted out:


"Our rights do not come from God, your honor, and
you know that. They come from man... That's your faith, that's my faith,
but that's not our country. Our laws come from collective agreement and
compromise."

131 I'm late to the party, but this OT should be interesting to the Horde.

Michigan had a stupid proposal on the ballot yesterday.
Michigan's roads are in such poor condition that our potholes are legendary. Our legislature has been arguing (despite being majority Republican) for months over how to fix it.

During all the debates, it came to light that the current state fuel tax IS NOT 100% being used for road maintainence. Instead, a large percentage of it is being siphoned off for Yes..you guessed it, schools, programs for the poor, etc.

So when it was proposed to restore the fuel tax usage back to it's intended purpose, roads, resulting in a loss of major money to all these non road recipients, the war was on.

Our children would suffer school closing, loss of programs, etc. The poor would starve, the state would lose a balanced budget, etc. etc.

So what did our brilliant legislators come up with? A hybrid proposal in which the state fuel tax would be raised, the state SALES tax would go up 1%, the increase in sales tax would continue to fund the schools, etc. (remember when the lottery was supposed to fund the schools beyond their wildest dreams-yeah, that's been siphoned off too) and the working poor would get more money..from the increase in taxes they pay to buy things, lol. The fuel tax would supposedly go to fully fund roads , but the language was murky.

Short answer, the voters in Michigan defeated this proposal 85% No. Virtually no one believed the BS coming out of Lansing on this proposal.
Snyder was still sounding like Baghdad Bob yesterday, claiming that he thought the proposal would pass.

It's heartening to see that my fellow Americans in my state, regardless of political bent, continue to have some sense and some fortitude.

The Nerd was so wrong.....LOL.

And part of the reason a metric fuckton of "hate speech" laws exist and are enforced around the country -- despite their obvious unconstitutionality -- is because Our Conservative Betters in elected offices have chosen to be all nicey-nicey and not impeach and/or imprison everyone who has used the Constitution as toilet paper over recent decades.

Liberal mouth-breathers couldn't get away with this shit if they were not, to a considerable extent, enabled by our own worthless eunuchs.

In any case the original increase was defeated by a 3-1 margin. So what did the county do? They schedule an "off year election three months later and gave all city and county employees the day off. It pass by a 3-1 margin of 1000 voters in a county with 70,000 residents.

243 First, "hate speech" is a bogus progressive construct. I can see some
future SCOTUS decision on "hate speech" reading like their decision about pornography ...
"I know it when I see it."

I think you can frame the limits of free speech based on the SCOTUS' definition and usage of "fighting words."



The SCOTUS differentiates between "in the heat of the moment" and otherwise.



I think if Ms Gellar had tried to hold a "draw the prophet" contest
at a mosque, there would have been a case for "in the heat of the
moment," but as the SCOTUS says if there is time for the initial
emotions of the participants to pass, like in the time it takes to
travel to Garland from Phoenix, that there is no defense for those who
attempt to commit crimes.

250 Beating around the issue of whether something "is or isn't hate speech" is an exercise in circular semantics only and will make you go blind.
Whatever the frack a Consensus of Professors of Fascism has defined as "hate speech" has zero legitimacy as a constitutional concept, and must be wholly rejected.
But repetition, without outright rejection, of "hate speech" as a phrase is enshrining a wholly unAmerican, unConstitutional concept in the minds of too many, much like the "expectation of privacy" language from a stray Supreme Court opinion has now been repeated by so many, so often as to create a now self-fulfilling prophesy of the death of privacy.
Never, ever argue that something "isn't hate speech."
The point must always be to reject the concept as borderline meaningless, and to the extent it has any meaning, wholly illegitimate.

So now he's on to the part about "proximity" in the fighting words carve out from Chaplinsky.

306 I'm not a lawyer or do I play one on TV, however I know quite a few.

It has been my experience when talking to them*, especially on political subjects and the Constitution, that they indeed do believe that SCOTUS rulings are the "Constitution." It has also been my impression that they believe the original document coupled with stated intent (as found in the Federalist Papers and other writings) is, in a way, superseded by said SCOTUS rulings.

Hence, we end up with bullshittery such as "separation of church and State" and a right to murder the unborn.

The Left has always thought this. Well, maybe not about the Pedophile Mohammed (piss be upon him), but in general. The entire *idea* of Hate Speech is essentially "speech control."

By labeling anything they don't like as "hate speech" they declare it off limits. Of course, the law exempts them (in fact, if not in writing) from the rules regarding "hate speech" because: "press." (This is another facet of why they hate "just a blogger"s- if bloggers count as the press, then their attempts to regulate speech completely fail).

Best suggestion is to either find a shop that rents guns and try out several, or, if you know someone who has a bunch of different firearms, see if they will let you try a few.

One thing to remember, don't get caught up in caliber. Buy the gun you like to shoot, not the one that has "more stopping power."

It's all well and good to own a 44 magnum that will "blow a head clean off" but if you're unwilling to practice with a large caliber handgun then it's not much use.

Serious answer? Conflict Theory. Which in a nutshell is a form of social "research" that gives rise to all the isms you know and love. The basic premise is that objective "reality" is only one form of reality, and the subjective narratives of the many, especially the "oppressed" are valued more than YOUR objective reality, which comes from your place of privilege.


This language is being taught to wide swaths of the culture, and it is being embraced as a legitimate viewpoint. More legitimate than your objective reality precisely because... well, you know why.

Words only mean what they say when they want them to. In all other instances, words are only place-holders for feelings.

"..endowed by their Creator" - in the Declaration, has no literal meaning.

435 Chris Cuomo, proving that my left nipple is smarter than he is.

Unknown.

Chris Cuomo doesn't respond to any external stimuli.

We'll have to do both tactile and temperature tests on the left nipple in question at the MoMee to be sure.

436 'Throughout my administration, we have taken a number of steps to change the culture and practices of the Baltimore Police Department,' Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (D) said.

Clearly, this city, which has been under Democrat leadership for 6 decades, in a state under Democrat leadership at least that long, requires more Democratin'!

Well...it's certainly perkier, however


Chris Cuomo is the bigger tit.

438 To the left, hate speech is pointing out to a leftist, in such a way that even he can't deny it, that he is full of shit; they hate you for doing that.


And the above is less than 140 characters.

Interesting...., implies that O'Malley is responsible for the culture of the police department.

442 'Throughout my administration, we have taken a number of steps to change the culture and practices of the Baltimore Police Department,' Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (D) said.

She went on to say 'many of those filthy crackers vote Republican despite our best efforts and they get uncle Tom race traitors to go along with them.'

443 so when the media and people of the progressive party speak ill-y of US , is considered hate speech?

Does this mean we should constrain their speech, articles in papers, and on media news speak?

or is restraining speech only meant for us?

444 We can keep talking about how stupid the Left is, but they're still smart enough to control the entire fu*king popular culture.

Posted by: rrpjr at May 06, 2015 12:05 PM (s/yC1)

445 Cuomo is trying really hard to backpedal and people aren't letting him. Saying "I guess I was wrong" is simply not in his nature, apparently.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at May 06, 2015 12:05 PM (39g3+)

446 Twitter slap fights don't make sense to me - where lawyers are involved is even worse. That, however, was a pleasure to read.

447 DangerGirl,

In case this hasn't been addressed yet, it sounds like you are 'limp wristing' your little Walther. Yes, it's a thing, especially if you are getting smacked in the face by hot brass.

448 the left is not stupid it's propaganda all the time. they cynically use emotions to the masses to divide the nation into disparate groups that they can control with fear.

War on Women!
They are gonna put you in chains!
they hate poor people!
Make women have 10 babies!

while building more govt agencies to control what they have wrought.
Profit! Power!

If you want to move people, use emotion.

The left never admits fault. Ever.

It is ALWAYS someone else's fault when they fail.

For me, the MP40 misfeeds were purely the ammo.

What were you feeding it? The MP40C I bought Deborah feeds everything I throw at it, even cheap range reloads. Haven't tried any steel case or bargain basement stuff yet though.

458 I think that to him, when a court makes a decision ABOUT the Constitution, then that becomes part of the Constitution. Reading Chaplinsky = reading the Constitution. And I guess thinking the courts are wrong is the same as thinking the Constitution is wrong.

459 "The whole "fire in a crowded theater" was about a guy handing out antiwar pamphlets.

Posted by: Lauren at May 06, 2015 10:25 AM (MYCIw)"

It was a bit more than that. It was about a guy passing out pamphlets to draftees during WWI urging them to disobey the draft.

460 Some real dumb asses get law degrees these days. When I was in college, not law school, one philosophy instructor taught the entire course on Guides to Straight Thinking by Stewart Chase. 1950's logic and the 13 basic fallacies. Almost all twisted thinking of the left involves one or more of these fallacies.
