    It’s no big deal that her colleague, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) called President Donald Trump a “mother-******,” House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told an MSNBC town hall on Friday. Thursday, on her first day on the job, Rep. Tlaib declared, “We’re gonna go in and impeach the mother******!” Asked to comment on the vulgar remark, Pelosi invoked “freedom of speech” — and said people shouldn’t make a big deal of it:“That’s freedom of speech on an individual member. As I said, generationally, that would not be language that I would use. But, nonetheless, I don’t think we should make...

  • New hate speech law in Sweden – From January it will be illegal to speak ill of transsexuals

    On 1 January, a so-called “extended judicial protection of transgender persons” is introduced, which means that the grounds of “transgender identity or expression” is added to the crime of hate speech, Fria Tider reports. At the end of last year, the Swedish Government submit a bill to Parliament with proposals to “strengthen the protection of transgender persons in criminal law”. “The legislative changes proposed by the government mean that transgender persons will be fully protected by hate crime legislation. Today, the regulations include, for example, skin colour, creed and sexual orientation”, the government wrote back then. The bill proposes that...

    After complaints from various activist groups, the song "Vanilla Ice Cream" has been banned from Broadway. She song, which is featured in the Tony Award winning musical, "She Loves Me" has been deemed racist by the ruling committee. When asked about the decision, one Broadway official said, "in today's political climate, we can no longer include a song with such an overt racist message as Vanilla Ice Cream. The song is nothing but pure hate speech." Another Broadway executive added, "We are no longer a nation of vanilla. We are also chocolate, strawberry, and so many other flavors. Vanilla ice...

    Economist Paul Krugman warned of a new “axis of evil” this week that includes Saudi Arabia, Russia, and the U.S. Former President George W. Bush once spoke of Iran, Iraq and North Korea as an “axis of evil” due to the actions of dictatorial regimes, long trains of humanitarian abuses and gulags. The new trifecta of evil, Mr. Krugman says, earn the designation for resisting reports on the severity of climate change. “There’s a new axis of evil: Russia, Saudi Arabia — and the United States,” the New York Times columnist tweeted Monday while sharing a piece by The Washington...

    California Democrat Ted Lieu bemoaned on Wednesday that though he would “love to be able to regulate the content of speech,” including that on Fox News, he can’t do it because of the U.S. Constitution. Lieu made the comments during an interview about the testimony of Google CEO Sundar Pichai at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, where he dismissed the allegations that the tech giant amplifies negative stories about Republican lawmakers, saying “if you want positive search results, do positive things." CNN host Brianna Keilar praised Lieu for his performance but asked whether other Democrats should have used the committee...

    Between a Christmas tree and a menorah display in the Illinois state capitol, a statue from the Satanic Temple is standing for the holiday season. The display shows an apple upheld by an arm which has been encircled by a snake. The words “Knowledge is the greatest gift” is written across the front of the black base. The satanic tribute was erected at the statehouse rotunda in Springfield. Near the display is an explanation from the local government. “The State of Illinois is required by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to allow temporary, public displays in the...

    Technology companies must take a moral stand against hate speech, said Apple CEO Tim Cook on Monday during a speech at the Anti-Defamation League. “I sometimes say that I worry less about computers that think like people and more about people that think like computers, without values or compassion, without concern for consequences,” Cook said, as he accepted the Anti-Defamation League’s first-ever “Courage Against Hate” awardon Monday night, an honor that will be given each year to a business leader who champions equality. The Apple CEO had a message for anyone trying to push hate, division or violence: “You have no...

    A sad picture of the world we live in, especially onlineThe BBC has reported Wednesday on an American man killed on North Sentinel Island. “Tribespeople shot him with arrows and left his body on the beach.” He may have been a Christian missionary, according to the BBC: “Local media have reported that Chau may have wanted to meet the tribe to preach Christianity to them.” The people of North Sentinel Island are one of the last isolated ethnic groups on earth. The Indian government forbids any visitors to the island, and natives routinely greet strangers with violence. Cruel HatredBe that...

    This is a tale of two young, outspoken women in media. One is a liberal tech writer. The other is an enterprising conservative new media reporter. One has achieved meteoric success and now works at a top American newspaper. The other has been de-platformed and marginalized. Their wildly different fates tell you everything you need to know about Silicon Valley's free speech double standards. Some smug elites will downplay Twitter's disparate treatment of these users by arguing that private tech corporations can do whatever they want and that no First Amendment issues have been raised. But this battle is about...

    So, after all this talk about dialing down the rhetoric, letÂ’s be clear about something: thatÂ’s never, ever going to happen. As long as there is a Democratic Party, it wonÂ’t happen. You cannot reason with these people. We said the same thing after the assassination attempt of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ). It didnÂ’t take. Why? ItÂ’s because Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, red states and blue states are different. We have different cultural attitudes, different views on patriotism (Democrats hate outward displays of national pride), and DEEP differences on how government should run the country. We...

    A University of Manitoba student says hateful messages posted on campus and sent to at least one fax machine add an "element of fear" to being on school grounds. "I think it's sickening," said Charlene Hallett. "But, on the other side too, I want to roll my eyes and say, "You know what? No, you don't get to try to intimidate us this way.'"  Sheets of paper with the phrase "It's okay to be white" were taped to walls around the U of M campus this week. Faxes with the same phrase were sent to offices around the campus, including the women's and gender studies program. Hallett is...

    FULL TITLE: Bernie Sanders Unleashed: Trump Is the 'Most Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Bigoted President in History' Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) went after President Trump Tuesday while he was campaigning for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (D). He called Trump “the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history." Sanders told the crowd that Democratic campaign staffers across the country “are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate.” Unlike former Vice President Joe Biden, Sanders said earlier this week...

    Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) teamed up with five other groups funded by George Soros to pressure tech companies to "reduce hateful activities on their platforms." While this sounds like a noble goal, mainstream conservative and Christian groups that have fallen afoul of the SPLC warned that these liberal organizations have an "Orwellian" definition of hate that most Americans would disagree with. Worse, social media companies already seem biased against conservatives, and this SPLC campaign would only embolden that bias. https://pjmedia.com/trending/splc-leads-soros-funded-groups-in-orwellian-attempt-to-ban-hate-speech-on-social-media/

    A group of civil rights organizations is pushing technology companies to create policies to more effectively address hate speech and extremist groups. The six organizations, joined by 40 other organizations who echoed the call, wrote in a report that they want the platforms to take more firm stances against “racism, sexism, xenophobia, religious bigotry, homophobia and transphobia,” and enforce policies against hate speech and extremist groups more strictly. The groups, which include the Center for American Progress, Color Of Change, Free Press, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the National Hispanic Media Coalition and the Southern Poverty Law...

    The ferocious incivility Americans have witnessed for decades has arisen largely from the left—and for good reason You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Hillary Clinton said recently in a CNN interview. “That’s why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.” The remark was quintessentially Clintonian in its brazen arrogance: We’ll act like adults when you give us our power back. She was roundly condemned for the statement on the right, coming as...

    Intolerance and illiberalism, nakedly defined as abstractions or principles, are seldom if ever outwardly embraced by progressives. None but the most extreme will argue that intolerance and censorship are good things in themselves. Normally the preferred course is more subtle. Instead of openly arresting people who say the wrong things, the new purveyors of intolerance try to sublimate their prohibitions on speech, expression, and thought into more popularly accepted channels. Something must be done to make these prohibitions more palatable, because there is still a great deal of respect in America for freedom of thought, speech, and expression. How...
