#1 "Free Speech Is Killing Us"

From your mouth to the ear of G*d.

#2 The truth will set you free. But it will give woke assholes a tummy ache too...

#3 Free SPEECH is killing us. A free PRESS (i.e., the NYT) is still important.
You should only listen to your betters - us.
To me, that is the real message in the NYT article.

#4 Thanks, Lord Vader. Free Speech is killing us.

You simply have to read this stupid bastard. He goes from Donald Trump, Modi and Duterte winning on trollspeak to the christchurch foxtrot uncle and his televised spree. He even includes a critique on the first amendment itself, indicating there may be a need to review it !

The underlying premise is that from words on a blog or post, people escalate to actual violence. Hence it is necessary to curb the initial freedom to speak or write, and the violent stage should never arrive, voila !

#5 ....Wandering if anyone else has noticed that when these articles come out, the liberals writing them ALWAYS assume that they'll be the ones imposing the rules...

#6 I think 50% of these writers could just as readily churn out right-wing propaganda, were we to pay them enough, ensure upward mobility and inclusion in some X-tasy fueled dyke parties.

Mercenary media, aggrandized academics and presstitutes.

#7 DarthVader, I fixed the non-appearance of the video by changing the dimensions thusly:

width="400" height="215"

I have to admit that I merely copied the dimensions Herb McCoy used when he submitted the same video for tomorrow, for which he commented,

The Media: "Trump is trying to suppress the free press and is a dictator."

Also the Media: "Big brother government, I demand censorship of the people that say things I don't like."

"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
-- George Washington

#8 I wonder why liberal tools
Assume they'll be making the rules?
You'd think they controlled
Our mass media, polls,
Civil service, courts, workplace, and schools!

#9 Your free speech, not theirs.

#10 NYT is no longer involved in reporting or journalism.
It's a cross between a church, a group blog and group therapy, with a large jolt of Democratic Party lobbying & advocacy.

And all of it focused on driving higher subscription revenues.

But they have nothing in common with "the press," and should not be treated as such at law or in common discourse.

#11 My annoyance at being copied is ameliorated by the fact that someone else is following Tim Pool.

All of you should. Head on over to YouTube and subscribe to his channel. Lots of good stuff there. Unless you're a warmongering neocon. Then you can take a long walk off a short pier because we and Tim Pool have nothing in common with you.

#12 Thanks TW!

Tim Pool is awesome. Definitely don't agree with him on everything, but the level headed way he presents things is always welcome.
