Crowder went deep uncover at SXSW, crashing an anti-free speech panel. Of course, the panel wasn’t promoted as anti-free speech, but it doesn’t take a mechanical engineer masquerading as a scientist to see the anti-freedom agenda the left has been pushing lately (see AntiFa Leftists Brutally Attack Trump Supporters and NYU Professor LOSES HER MIND When NYPD Protects Gavin McInnes)…
Behind enemy lines, we try to ask a #SXSW panel a very reasonable question: What is hate speech and who defines it?
This doctor (and his panel) perfectly exemplifies what I call “pseudo-intellectual double-speak.” The doctor basically says, “We need to have societal conversations as to what we deem acceptable and blah blah blah, yackity schmackity.” He truly believes he answered my question of, “What is hate speech and who gets to define it?” It’s both sad and terrifying.
Hint: “Hate speech” as defined by a leftist is anything they don’t like. Rather than combatting “hate speech” with more speech, the left would rather shut all speech down, limiting it to whatever they deem appropriate. Which is why we’d rather not board the sinking ship “Hate speech.”
Notice this doctor is proudly explaining European speech policies (which suck), in America. He stumbled right into one of my geopolitical pet peeves: “Well such and such European country is doing X, ergo, America should do X!” Um…
Seek ye an atlas or a globe. This here is America, a nation founded on freedom, including free speech, which was left undefined on purpose. Thanks to the First Amendment, you have freedom of speech in the spoken and written word, even if your medium is more than conversational or ink and parchment. Yep, the First Amendment means you can say what you wish on a phone, podcast, radio program, text message, television show, sad and pathetic Antifa blog forum, or inside an overly priced Hallmark greeting card. America. We’re here, we’re fighting your battles, we’re calling Europeans spineless crap cronuts who cede their rich cultural history to feelings and Islamic jihadists. Pardon us if we’re going to continue our delightful independence from tragic European policies. Which even many in the Europes find displeasing.
Idea: How about we keep America free, and Europe can accelerate its circling of the drain all on its own? Sound like a plan?
Because no, adopting European speech policies (or any other policy) is no bueno. I’d sooner take fashion advice from Lena Dunham.
