Bill Introduced Targeting Internet “Hate Speech”

We have known for generations that the triumph of the Left will mean the end of freedom of speech. It is unthinkable that sites like Moonbattery.com would continue to exist if Democrats had the leverage to suppress them. Facing only the floundering, unprincipled, and essentially useless Republican Party in the way of opposition, some liberals feel that the time is already ripe to do to the First Amendment what they long ago did to the Tenth.

Thirteen House Democrats have proposed legislation that would require the government to study hate speech on the Internet, mobile phones and television and radio.

By now even the most clueless are aware that “hate speech” is defined as speech hated by the Left. But you’ll never get anyone on the Left to admit it, as their agenda can only be advanced under a smoke screen of euphemisms and lies.

Among the bill’s sponsors is Rep Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who intones,

“The Internet is a wonderful vehicle for innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship. But it can also be used as a platform to promote hate and target vulnerable individuals.”

“Vulnerable individuals” is Newspeak for “politically favored groups.”

The focus will be on sites allegedly encouraging “hate crimes” relating to “race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation.” This means that sites deemed not to promote the interests of blacks, women, Muslims, and perverts will targeted for repression. These group interests will be defined by left-wing demagogues and community organizer types like Al Sharpton and Dan Savage.

Unsurprisingly, the NAACP and NOW support the bill, which is a first step toward silencing the opponents of their toxic radical agendas. An official statement from NOW expresses “hope that the study will address continuing hate speech that vilifies women seeking reproductive health care” — i.e., that it will be used to silence critics of abortion.

Only if liberalism is turned back decisively can the liberties that have always defined this country be preserved.

    Internet?! They should monitor MSNBC.

    “You’re going to have to kill some White babies” will not be considered hate speech.

    I can guarantee you that every right wing blog is, has been, and will be, monitored and recorded constantly. Software can search blog comments for trigger words and notify authorities when necessary. There has already been a case where an anti-Islamic blog (Bare Naked Islam) was shut down because the owner was deemed responsible for the comments posted to his site. The comments were deleted and BNI’s back online but the precedent has been established. You may have heard of RealID or some similar push to eradicate online anonymity – this gives authorities and vigilantes the ability to track, identify, and punish individuals with incorrect viewpoints. Liberals are drooling at the mouth at the thought of being able to silence Conservative blogs and radio, and they know the hate speech rules won’t be applied to them.

    Free speech is dangerous to liberalism, therefore…

    Right now, here in my state, satanists are probably going to get to erect a monument to their demon. I don’t like it but I accept the fact that if we truly believe in liberty and equal consideration under the law it is just something we have to deal with. The same goes for these semantic fascists. Free speech and a true acceptance of diversity and tolerance means that a person has even the right to hate and convey that hate. The Left needs to Move On, Move Forward or ‘evolve’ on this matter.

    Hate speech:any comment containing morals or pertaining to Muslims, abortuaries, gays or blacks.
    Not hate speech: anything about America, Christians, white people, or people who work for a living

  6. dan says:

    it’s not free speech that progressives fear…
    it’s the TRUTH that’s IN the free speech.

  7. Xavier says:

    Liberals believe they have the right to free speech as well as the right to not be offended by anyone else’s free speech.

    Seriously. I’ve see that written on blogs, and they mean it.

    So……

    What are we going to do about it?

    The time for talk is long gone. The Republicans in Congress are just a bunch of sell-outs. So what are We The People going to do to stop this?

  10. Henry says:

    The enemies of freedom will mold the definition of “hate speech” such that their enemies all become criminals.

    If by decisively you mean by force of arms, then I agree.

    That is the only way to stop these people from enslaving us.

    Laurie – See my statement above. This situation can no longer be resolved by voting or protesting or letter writing. Th enemy is going to do what they plan to do and absolutely will not stop until they are met with force. That has been the way it is throughout human history. Evil must opposed by force and defeated, it cannot be reasoned with, or bargained with or trusted to abide by a compromise. What are we going to do wait for the next election or the one after that and then hold our noses and vote for the lesser of two evils – AGAIN? The problem with voting for the lesser of two evils is that you are still voting for evil.

    No, The time for ballots has passed, the time for bullets has arrived. Prepare yourself, war is coming.

  12. Phil Wilson says:

    Free speech. We have to tolerate them floating this idea. But in a healthy republic (as opposed to what we have allowed the USA to become) anyone who introduced this sort of bill would be tarred and feathered immediately.

    I’d be completely pissed off if I didn’t think this bill might be a sign of panic. F you, leftist scumbags. Your choke hold on the information stream is weakening, no matter how much you kick and scream.

    A hate crime is one in which the government reads your mind and if they don’t like what they read, they add extra years to your sentence.

  19. bobdog says:

    There’s a misquote in this article that you should correct:

    “Thirteen House Democrats have proposed legislation that would require the government to study hate speech on the Internet, mobile phones and television and radio.” This quote is inaccurate.

    It should read:

    “Thirteen House Democrats have proposed legislation that would require the government to study hate speech by white people on the Internet, mobile phones and television and radio.”
