Vice.com's racist idea: Free speech “is often connected to” white supremacists

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I saw this confusing story at Vice.com: “A Comedian’s ‘Free Speech’ Show Got Cancelled After He Mocked an Anti-Fascist Rally.”

A leftist comedian wanted to have a comedy night to make fun of conservatives, by calling them fascists and Nazis. He even attacked me by name in his online ad, which is odd since I’m Jewish, not a Nazi.

(In fact, he attacked a bunch of conservatives Jews, which is really weird, because he styles himself as tolerant.)

But this comedian was so inarticulate about what he was doing that some other leftists thought he was a neo-Nazi — even though he’s Jewish too.

So Antifa types jammed the locks on the door of the comedy club — in other words, one dumb leftist being silenced by other dumb leftists.

Here’s what a journalist from Vice said about the leftist comedian:

Asked if he was deliberately trolling the group by using the term "free speech," given white supremacists are often connected to free speech rallies, he admitted he was doing an "experiment" to see what would happen.

Look: Vice is gross. It’s full of profanity, and obsesses over drugs and prostitution. (Vice actually had a drug ring operating in its offices...)

But Vice only exists because of free speech.

And they’re now against it?

It’s historically false to call free speech white supremacist; it’s logically and factually false.

But it’s also racist in itself. WATCH to see what I mean.

I guess the horrors I SAW WITH MY EYES on television of mass beheadings, blood turning the ocean red, burning men alive, hearing of raping women and children, and full scale terrorism don’t count for speech…that is why they are protected…they don’t say ANYTHING they just do their religious duty for all to see, and film their actions over and over, making certain that western TV shows their actions constantly as educational films…then when someone sees this and is concerned they have to be silent in case they are accused of hate speech. Google silences speech of conservatives, but the media permit these films to be shown for children to access. Then westerners are not permitted to react verbally or they commit a crime. So this is what you call a reasonable limitation of free speech…Is this terrorism via education being shown for a reason? And if so, what is that reason?

Free speech is only permitted by the left…that is why Aunty Faux refuses to allow conservatives to speak at all without raging and erupting into violence and fascist black boot antics. It isn’t enough that the left controls schools, universities, almost all the media and Hollywood, but they are so paranoid they can’t even allow a single conservative to speak in public without going ape-crazy…You have to wonder why they are so determined to hide their agenda so viciously! Well conservatives know what they are hiding…too bad the rest are so naive.

“Ayan, Rotherham’s lack of free speech created a broken system; women & girls paid the price!”

Free speech or promotion of violence and hatred through lies and rhetoric?

Ezra Levant and the like won’t tell you what Kevin Johnston said in one of his Freedom Report videos:

“It is time for us to take our masculinity back and beat the living hell out of these [Muslims]. Pin them down on the ground, and beat them until they pass out. And when they’re passed out, you beat them further; and when they’re on the ground passed out, kick them, break a kneecap, break an elbow, press their hands backwards turn their wrists sideways, start breaking these guys down.”

Johnston was recently charged under Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code because he is promoting hatred and advocating violence, NOT because he is criticizing Islam.

“I call your Israel comments promotion of violence and hatred through lies and rhetoric so punish yourself accordingly.”

I am simply pointing out the truth, unlike Ezra Levant and the like.

“Politically, Christians agree with Muslims in saying Israel cannot be a democracy and a Jewish state at the same time. About seven-in-ten Christians (72%) and 63% of Muslims take this view. Israeli Christians have political views similar to those of their fellow Arabs on several other issues as well. For example, majorities of Christians (80%) and Muslims (72%) say the Israeli government is not making a sincere effort to achieve a peace agreement with the Palestinians, and most Christians (79%) and Muslims (61%) in Israel also say the continued building of Jewish settlements in the West Bank hurts Israel’s security. And Israeli Christians (86%) and Muslims (75%) both overwhelmingly say the U.S. is too supportive of Israel.”

“Ayan Ray the map has changed in other ways as well. The land was taken by force , they got it back. What part of that don’t you get? They were there long before Muhammed was born.”

Then should not Canada, the US, Australia and New Zealand be given back to the indigenous peoples?

Thanks for confirming that racism, conservatism, and low IQ go hand in hand.

“Ayan Ray that is not for you to decide , you are not in charge of the world.”

Normal people agree with me, which is why you always whine that you don’t have a “voice” in Ottawa. That’s because you don’t deserve a voice.

“In the 1990 case known as R v. Keegstra, the accused was a teacher who used his position to promote hatred of Jews. In that landmark hate-speech case, the Supreme Court of Canada noted that Section 319 of the Criminal Code, which prohibits willful promotion of hatred except in private conversation, does indeed violate freedom of expression rights. However, the Supreme Court also noted that this violation is justified because it is a reasonable limitation of that right. In Keegstra, the court ruled that on balance, the limitation was less harmful than the harm of the speech itself.”

People like you should leave if you are unable to live in a civilized society.

“…that’s the left today, they’re stupid, they’re violent to people and property, they’re incapable of having a debate on ideas…”
You forgot one Ezra – they’re all craven cowards!

Is free speech just for us white folks? Maybe not the best examples to use here – Dr. King and Mahatma Gandhi were both Communists! – but I get your point.
I keep hearing that only White folk can be racist and only White folk, or rather only White males can have privilege, and that the evil ‘patriarchy’ is mostly-White, privileged, racist males…and includes all the rest of the -phobes and -ists.
I guess we’re special, us White folk, since the left are continually accusing us of that – I’m so confused…

Anyone who is against free speech should not speak.

Tammie and Doug it was simply a matter of time. Could you imagine if they did get rid of the rest of us? They would spend the rest of their days ripping each other apart.

Mongrel they fail to understand that making it up as you go is not conducive to sanity. And sadly you are correct about the right heading down that road.

The trouble is the regressive left no longer has a clear set of guiding beliefs or principles, so they just drift. Unfortunately, the right is following the same path.
commented 2017-08-30 17:00:44 -0400
I have been predicting for many months now that the loony left would have to start eating their own, based on the inherent discrepancies and outright contradictions in the fallacy-based policies they espouse. Nice to see it coming true.

BTW, Tammie, “leftist logic” is the new ultimate example of an oxymoron.

if everyone agreed we wouldn’t need free speech but until that Kumbaya moment in humanity occurs we both need to have our story told in courtrooms or otherwise.

Leftist logic confounds the useful idiots too, the goal posts keep moving!

Marxists/Postmodernists at universities have convinced large numbers of SJW’s that “free speech” is “white speech”, the method that white males use to dominate the oppressed which means all minorities except somehow, Chinese and South Asians, both of whom appear to have magically escaped this phenomenon.

Evergreen State College in Washington actually scheduled a meeting about the “Chinese problem” that is, what to do about the fact that Chinese are among the highest income earners in the US today and can no longer be considered oppressed.

The fact that he was employing “white speech” is why the students at Middlesbury College, VA where Dr Charles Murray, a white male author was drowned out by hoots and hollers, of a previously arranged lecture, said that they wouldn’t allow him to speak at all.
