Have you noticed how quiet all the FREE SPEECH advocates have been about what's happening with the police and protesters?
@Are0h Have they? I thought they were all talking about how great it was that the police are finally doing "what's necessary" to stop these "violent anarchists" from destroying the country.
@freakazoid Ha, yeah.
They stopped advocating for free speech.
@Are0h Not to mention all the musketfuckers being absolutely fine with that tyrannical behavior the guns are supposed to be for.
@WeeMadHamish That's a whole other topic.
I've heard hundreds of white people state with their chests they would readily take up arms against the government if they started violently infringing on people's rights.
Those same people are cheering the police right now.
I really wish this weren't as true as it was.
@Are0h It's free speech when white people do a racism, not when black people try to do an antiracism. This is basic constitutional scholarship backed up by centuries of supreme court rulings.
@Are0h FREE SPEECH*
*for racists only
@Are0h Lol yes! And it turns out that those extremely loud folks that say "I don't agree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it" were mostly middle aged moms from the Portland area. Who knew!
@Are0h Im pretty sure were not hearing from them for the same reason you don't see cops breaking up KKK rallies or Hannah Montana at a Miley Cyrus concert.
@Are0h I actually haven't because they're all blocked lol
@pizza This assumes I am talking exclusively about the fedi.
I am not.
@Are0h ah gotcha. I wish my blocks worked in real life
