Suddenly the alt-left is very concerned about the First Amendment rights of peoplewrites Howie Carr in the Boston Herald
– some people, anyway.
Specifically, George Soros et al. care about those useful idiots in shoulder pads whom they want to use in their unending attempts to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election.
As for the First Amendment rights to free speech of everyone who isn’t a card-carrying fellow traveler – what rights do those deplorables have?
What about the Christian bakers in Oregon who were sued out of business for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding? Or the clerk in Kentucky (a Democrat by the way) who refused to marry a gay couple?
Don’t they have the same First Amendment rights as the Beautiful People?
Haven’t we been told by innumerable squirrelly adjunct professors of womyn’s (CQ) studies that conservatives need not apply to speak on college campuses because “free speech” does not apply to “hate speech?” Think Middlebury, UC Berkeley, Evergreen State, Oberlin and so forth.
… The Democrat operatives posing as journalists on CNN-MSNBC-ABC-CBS etc. are shocked, shocked that Trump would insert himself in NFL politics. But when Obama demanded that the Redskins change their name, he was a Profile in Courage. They wanted to give Barry another Nobel Peace Prize.
Which just goes to prove that being a billionaire doesn’t necessarily protect you from a left-wing anti-free-speech crusade – or should I say jihad. Just ask ‘Skins owner Dan Snyder.
You know how it works. When you criticize the alt-left, it’s hate speech. When they criticize you, it’s speaking truth to power.
“Divisive” – any statement the alt-left disagrees with.
“Dogwhistle” – any word they don’t like but don’t want to specifically call “racist,” I mean, “white supremacist,” their new term for the r-word.
How about YouTube demonetizing videos from conservative bloggers, and social media sites like Facebook and Google suppressing posts from right-wing users.
… I could go on… and on… and on. So could Donald Trump. And he will, you know.
