CLASSY: Portland Mayor Tries Leveraging City's Tragedy to Suppress "Hate Speech"...
There's no better way to silence speech you find displeasing than to ban it. There's no better way to push that agenda than through a tragedy. Enter the mayor of Portland, who leveraged his city's tragedy to suppress free-speech. A crusade the left has engaged in for some time (see FASCISM: Wellesley Newspaper Encourages Violence. To Shut Down Free Speech… and Bill Maher: Liberals Banning Free Speech is Like Book Burning…). The left simply "knows" better. We are but children in their precious playground of gender neutral toys.
The mayor of Portland, Oregon, is trying to stop what he describes as two upcoming "alt-right" demonstrations as his city continues to mourn the stabbing deaths of two residents who intervened in a possible hate crime.
Mayor Ted Wheeler on Monday called on the federal government to revoke the permit for a rally set for Sunday, and to deny permission for a second rally on June 10.
The two gatherings -- backed by different organizers -- are planned for a park on federal land, which gives federal authorities control over issuing permits.
That's fair. So let's play a little word game, okay? Federal land = federal law. Federal law = the Constitution. The Constitution = the First Amendment. The First Amendment = free speech. Read it and weep. If you're still confused, do not operate heavy machinery. Including a hair dryer. But please use the electric nasal hair remover as needed. Get it waaaay up there.
Democrats cry about "hate speech" as often as Caitlyn Jenner adjusts his busting breasts. Hey, they were probably expensive. Someone should be fondling them. Except as we've discussed before, hate speech isn't a thing. It's simply code for "I can't argue with these words and ideas, so I'll just say it's hateful and hope a Democrat agrees and shuts it down." But the beauty of the First Amendment is its complete lack of asterisks and fine print exceptions. "Hate speech," "love speech," "math speech" and "tranny speech" (if there is ever such a thing) is all protected under the First Amendment. One cannot simply slap an adjective in front of a noun and get it banned. But it's cute to think the Founding Fathers could be so easily out-witted.
No. Here are other wizards of the mentally challenged realm to personify stupidity:
