Tucker Carlson strikes me as the type who would not associate with “my type” in the halls of high school. He just seems a little….I am not sure, but occasionally he hits the mark and in the video below he defiantly scores one for clearly describing the monolithic nature of present day News Media in America. You will have to pause for a few seconds on the intro to his monologue, for a teaser concerning celeb gunk upcoming, but the monologue is worth the trip..
I must defend freedom of speech. I am apposed to shouting FIRE in a crowded theater, as I am opposed to any words that precipitate harm to others. But the what about the tender sensitivities of those who would ruin your life for uttering unapproved utterances. Where is the ministry of acceptable utterances? From what fountainhead gushes the long litany of prohibited speech. Is it Winston Smith, sitting in his booth, making amendments to each spoken word? The pik below is linked to an article about a city councilor who made the statement that it was natural to be afraid of Muslims. Whether it was a mistake for her to say or not I leave to others to debate. My personal perspective is that where there is smoke there is fire and the only sect smoldering on a regular basis are the Muslims. My concern is that she apparently apologized and then resigned from her position. Is that the cost of speech? Either I wait for the public pillaring or I just go ahead and fall on my sword first.
Didn’t Britain learn anything since CHamberlain appeased them into the second world war. A basic mindset of the middle eastern mind would see such placation as weakness.
Whenever a Jihadi sees such behavior a little sparkle comes to his/her eyes. They know that they have been given the pass to take more, push for more and gain more power. There is no question about the nature of the relationship to power in countries that have taken them in as migrants. It is stated a multitude of times in the Koran, Hadith, and other Muslim literature that those who are not Muslim are judged inferior by Allah and they should be “made to feel” their subordination. The battle lines are clear to any Muslim. If you are not muslim you are akin to cockroaches, a pest that should be either eliminated or subjugated. Yet it appears that the British don’t even know which direction the front is. They keep knocking out stones from their own ramparts.
In this case they are censuring the content of a comedians routine. Klikdapik for further information.
Well now I know why Obama cuddled so sweetly with Chavez of Venezuela during his administration. He was studying the fine points of sandbagging political opposition. Dinesh has always been a very vocal and effective critic of Obama. After he made a particularly damning film on Obamas false rise to the presidency it was obvious to the Obama administration that he had to go…….
There are a lot of angry millenials out there these days. Walking bruises who are just waiting to have their sensitivities insulted that they might rail,pout and riot to punish the transgression of free speech. or rather “hate speech”. They are products of universities that have invalidated legitimate knowledge to cling to speaking , training , and living a certain set of behavioral rules that eschew education, polite behavior, work, effort (unless it’s to aggrandize their political positions) and open mindedness. They have indeed been programmed.
