Why Fascist Speech is Not Free Speech

The growing fascist movement in the United States often claims that it is marching for “free speech” and complains that Antifa and other opponents are violating their rights. Unfortunately, this cynical claim has won some credibility among liberals and even the ACLU. But the law does not protect the advocacy of violence any more than it protects child pornography. These well-established legal principles should be extended to prohibit the advocacy of genocide, the ultimate violence.

Arguing about the free speech rights of Nazis, fascists, and KKK members is a trap. The issue is not speech, it is violence. The fascists do not want to argue with us, they want to kill us.

Saul Alinsky 101: Accuse your opponent of what only you are doing, as you are doing it, to create confusion, cloud the issue, and inoculate voters against any evidence of your guilt.

    What growing fascist movement?

    • Ho Hum

      That is what struck me first. There is no evidence of a “growing fascist movement”. In Charlottesville there was only one guy carrying a Nazi flag (a brand new flag with creases still present). This guy was pictured at a left wing rally so almost certainly a left wing plant. Unfortunately these Alinsky tactics work because all of the MSM (including the “conservative” FOX) are only too happy to push the narrative that Trump has emboldened “fascists”.

      • Ho Hum

        The lone Nazi flag and sprinkling of Confederate flags all had fresh creases in them – they were brand new right out of the bag! You would think a real “Nazi” would have flags lying around the house and wouldn’t have to go out and buy flags for a protest..

          Not a real Nazi flag, and besides, the swastika is BACKWARDS.
          This is a LITERAL FALSE FLAG.

            Not necessarily. If viewed from the other side, it would be correct. Some flags just make one print and you can see the mirror opposite from the other side of it. That being said, yes, this is definitely a left wing plant.

      • The whole thing is complete BS – this is what they tell themselves to justify violence.

      The very people decrying it.

      The only fascists around here are of the Antifa strain!

    “The fascists don’t want to argue with us, they want to kill us!” – coming from the guys carrying a banner that states – “Smash The White Man March”. They might see better if their heads weren’t jammed up their a$%holes.

      With their inability to attract hot chicks I’d say their heads are probably up each others butts.

      Correction: “Masked guys”. Because wearing a mask in 30C heat brings visions of teddy bears and cuddles.

    “We are not proposing that offensive speech, or even speech that many
    consider hateful because of its abusive treatment of people based upon
    their race, gender or ethnicity, be outlawed”

    That is quite possibly one of the biggest lies that has ever been told. As for the rest of the article, in his smug leftist arrogance he is probably completely unaware of how so much of what he’s saying could so easily backfire on the Left in so many ways.

    When these peace advocates demand the extermination of 25 million opponents, it will be sold as for their own good. (Like like solving the health care mess by demanding that you buy insurance from politically connected corporate fascists.)

    • NoBamaYoMama

      Indeed. Bill Ayers, disciple of Satan and follower of Saul Alinsky, figured that after the Great Revolution there would be about 25 million of us staunch, die-hard conservatives that would have to be eliminated. Just matter-of-fact, didn’t care a whit about the humanities of that statement.

  • NoBamaYoMama

    The evil Saul Alinsky is a disciple of Satan and dedicated his horrific book, “Rules for Radicals” to the Devil.
