The Left’s Next Step: Redefining ‘Hate Speech’ as Violence

An article in the Sunday Review section of the July 16 New York Times posed a question which, once upon a more innocent time, would have been considered nonsensical: “When Is Speech Violence?” The response of any person who cares about the clarity of language would properly be “Never,” but Lisa Feldman Barrett, a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, asserts in the Times piece that the science is settled: “speech that bullies and torments” is “literally a form of violence.”

Turn Left and Go Over the Top

Radical opponents of free speech can’t tolerate hearing anything new.

Pity the poor members of the Resistance. They decried violence on the right—only to have GOP congressman Steve Scalise shot by rifle-wielding left-winger James T. Hodgkinson. Then, a group of theater professinals decried any attempt to quash a staging of Julius Caesar with the title character, caparisoned as Donald Trump, assassinated with shouts of revenge and gouts of blood. But soon afterward, yet another assemblage of theater professionals decided that censorship was a good thing after all.

Jordan B. Peterson: Postmodern NeoMarxism: Diagnosis and Cure

“I gave this talk at a meeting hosted by the University of Toronto’s Students in Support of Free Speech (https://www.facebook.com/ssfsut/), which is one of many such groups that are springing up across North American, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in reaction to the censorial attitude of the postmodern neo-marxists who have come to dominate the humanities, law, education and much of the social sciences on campuses in recent years.

I am hoping that with concerted effort it will be possible to identify the corrupted and ideologically-possessed university disciplines across campuses world-wide and to drive down their new enrolment by 75% over the next five years.

As of now a website is being designed to help students (and their parents) identify postmodern cult courses from course descriptions, so that those who would rather be educated than indoctrinated can make a choice (and, I suppose, for those who wish the opposite to make a choice as well). Stay posted.”

‘Anti-Fascist,’ Anti-Trump Protesters Applaud Hitler Quotes

In “Mein Kampf,” Adolf Hitler said, “It is not truth that matters, but victory.”

Poor Antifa. Just when you think they couldn’t be any more hypocritical in their actions, we get this little nugget of irony.

A video recently came out of an Antifa/anti-President Trump protest in Chicago not surprisingly called the “Impeach Trump March.”

School detention is a kind of violence, says ‘conflict guru’ who complains it is creating a ‘domination culture’

It has been a dreaded – but apparently harmless – punishment for generations of naughty children forced to stay in class after school while their friends go home.

But now detention has been branded a ‘kind of violence’ by a Government-funded conflict expert – to the dismay of traditionalists.

Thinking like this has brought you the new “Face of Europe”.

Swelling the Enemy’s Ranks

On Thursday, the progressive left treated itself to an orgiastic display of self-destruction. In the name of opposing all that Donald Trump deigns to grace with his favor, American progressives found themselves attacking Bill Clinton’s brand of centrist politics, defending woefully misunderstood calls for “jihad,” and dismissing unqualified praise for the West as racially suspect.

Left-wing ‘diversity’ vs Muslims and their ‘customs’

Previously Starbucks was mocked by all sides for its ill-advised “Race Together” initiative”. Despite its efforts to be all social justicy Starbucks locations remain a favoured target for Antifa/Black Bloc rioters.

Starbucks, the famously left-wing coffee chain, is being boycotted in a case of blue-on-blue activism.

Muslim groups in Malaysia and Indonesia are calling for the boycott due to the coffee chain’s vocal support for homosexual rights.

The spokesman for a Malaysian Islamic group said that country should revoke Starbucks’ trading license as well as other companies, including Microsoft and Apple, that support homosexual rights, The Washington Post reported.

The liberal policies violate Malaysia’s constitution and Islam in particular, the group claims.

The Left’s Breaking Point?

We might have found it with the transgender movement.

First, it must be understood up front that in the grand scheme of things “transgender” people constitute a statistically insignificant portion of the population. They’re so exceedingly rare as to make almost any public-policy or political argument about their treatment by society a sideshow in a true sense.

We’re not talking about 10 percent of the population who suffers from “gender dysphoria,” or even one percent. We’re talking about a small fraction of one percent. There may be more Amish people than transgender people. Somewhere there might be a transgender Amish person, who is sure to be interviewed by 60 Minutes.

Head of Major German Paper Denounces ‘Left-Wing Fascism’ at G20 Summit

The head of Germany’s Die Welt newspaper Ulf Poschardt has denounced the violence caused by left-wing extremists calling the rioting, “the new fascist violence of the left”.

Mr. Poschardt, who serves as the editor in chief of Die Welt, slammed the so-called “black-block” left-extremists in a new column likening them to the Blackshirts who committed acts of political violence under Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini in the 1920s.

“Their black costume reveals that their aesthetic is inspired by Mussolini’s black shirts. They act like fascists. They stir up fear and uncertainty. The Black Block has been turning Hamburg into a civil war landscape since Thursday evening,” he wrote.
