Hate Speech and the Left

, , ,

HateSpeech1

“It’s free speech if the left hates the target.
It’s hate speech if the left favors the target.

That’s really all they mean. They have no principle of free speech that they support independent of a group identity. Thus:

Criticizing Christianity is free speech
Criticizing Islam is hate speech
Burning an American Flag is free speech
Burning a Gay Pride Flag is hate speech

It’s not the nature of the criticism, it’s only the favor of the target. You can’t argue the legitimacy or severity of the attack. That’s irrelevant. It’s all determined up front by who the target is.

So burning the American Flag is free speech. If you retort that it’s hateful to Americans they’ll say that they are complaining about the system and not the people.
If you burn the Gay Pride (rainbow) flag it’s hate speech. If you retort that you are only complaining about the system of the gay activist elite and their heavy handed tactics, and not gay people, the left will simply dismiss that as a lame excuse to hide your hatred.

Christ in Urine is free speech.
Flushing a Koran is hate speech.

It’s not the act or type of speech. The distinction free speech or hate speech is just determined by whether the left favors the target. That all. Then they make up indignant rationales to justify their position.

If they hate the target, then it’s free speech to criticize them and censorship to stop the criticism… If they love the target then It’s hate speech to criticize them and an act of protection to stop the criticism.”

France Closes 20 Embassies After French Satire Magazine Again Publishes Mohammed Cartoons

The French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo again has published some cartoon images mocking Islamic religious hypersensitivity, as the Australian Herald Sun reported:

The cover of Charlie Hebdo today shows a Muslim in a wheelchair being pushed by an Orthodox Jew under the title Intouchables 2, referring to an award-winning French film about a poor black man who helps an aristocratic quadriplegic.

Another cartoon on the back page of the weekly magazine shows a naked turbaned Mohammed exposing his posterior to a film director, a scene inspired by a 1963 film starring French film star Brigitte Bardot.

Charlie Hebdo’s website crashed today after being bombarded with comments that ranged from hate mail to approbation.

The magazine is no stranger to controversy over issues relating to Islam.

Last year it published an edition ”guest-edited” by Prophet Mohammed that it called Sharia Hebdo.

The magazine’s offices in Paris were subsequently fire-bombed.

The government of France responded bravely by announcing the closing of twenty embassies all over the Islamic world.

France 24:

France announced Wednesday it will close 20 embassies across the Muslim world on Friday after French weekly Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed naked, amid growing unrest over an anti-Islamic film that has left dozens dead.

The French foreign ministry announced Wednesday that France will close 20 of its embassies in Muslim countries this Friday following the publication of controversial Prophet Mohammed cartoons by satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. Major protests in the Muslim world generally take place after Friday prayers.

Charlie Hebdo’s web-site was successfully shut down by denial of service attacks, and its offices were today surrounded by French riot police.
