Crowder broke down his definition of free speech: which is the consitutional argument that all speech is permissible outside of a crime.
“The crime is not the speech. The crime is the action causing violence on purpose. Outside of that, everything is permissible,” Crowder said.
Morgan previously wrote an editorial for The New York Post where he explained how he believed Alex Jones should not be allowed back on X due to being convicted of defamation regarding comments about the Sandy Hook shooting.
“My opinion was based on the Constitution of the United States not protecting you if you are guilty of defamation,” Morgan said. “He knew it wasn’t a hoax. He knew the massacre happened.”
The pair then discussed whether a defamation conviction makes it so you de facto forfeit your right to speak.
“Here's the beauty of the First Amendment, even if you at one point commit defamation, you still don't forfeit your right to speak going forward,” Crowder said.
Although Morgan agrees with the statement that the First Amendment is completely inalienable, he still disagrees that Jones should be allowed back on X.
“The problem that we have in today's society is not wanting to allow people to be wrong [and] make mistakes,” Crowder said.
Since Jones was still found guilty in the defamation case, Morgan believes that he should not be allowed back on X.
“I don't think that people like Alex Jones should be allowed an unchallenged, unfettered public platform to spew lies which are done deliberately in my estimation,” Morgan said. “No one can have a direct challenge to Alex Jones.”
The two further discussed the constitution and other controversial online figures.
"Free speech is a really interesting area. I think ultimately we agree about more things with free speech than we disagree," Morgan said.
