Taken from JRE #1643 w/Jonathan Zimmerman:

  • Dude they brought in “hate speech” laws over here in Scotland... an attempt to stop hate crime. I think it’s a hate crime that they expect us not to offend someone now and again. We’re Scottish man, that’s like...culturally insensitive or something. You may as well build a prison wall around the whole f*cking country cause we’ll all be behind bars by Christmas at this rate.

  • this is so basic and missunderstood it feels bad really. People just because you are offended by an opinion doesn't always mean the opinion was meant to offend you, hell even clear offenses sometimes are not meant to offend context is losing ground quick its sad.

  • Mr Sir, hats off to ya first off and kinda off subject but I couldn't agree with U more about the vaccine for the bs virus that was just a power reset button. But really they can't even label nutritional facts on our food and ingredients have names I've never been able to read or pronounce. That said, what is in the vaccine and how can they come up with that in what did they call it project warp speed? Why don't they treat all illnesses the same way and warp speed a cure🤔 is it bc we're all test dummies for medical science to keeping hospitals open and running,to keep people sick and act like they're there to help. I haven't ever had a flu shot or the flu, I really question all the vaccinations we had to get growing up. Drs and weather forecasters and mechanics are all good guessers and not always right. When my Mom started to have health issues,the first house of quacks called in the family and told us to prepare for a funeral. Thank God my Aunt went out and got her a second opinion on which she fought for 18 more beautiful years and this is the place we trust delivering our kids, how do we know if they aren't responsible for more than half of the problems women go through at birth or have a special needs child bc a Dr wanted to try something on his patient 🤔 people don't think and let others think for them

  • Good, an episode not about UFOs, fuck me Any degree of legal liability for expressing a notion is equal in form to having to submit your thoughts for review to an authority. In practice; every notion censored out of public conversation generates an equal potential to force everyone to have to claim its opposite. I.e: If I can't say "I hate cats", then the best I can say is "I don't hate cats" And if an evil cat mafia ever takes over, then they can chip away at more and more notions until I am forced to proclaim how much I love these fuzzy little fiends. Protecting free speech is, in an ironic way like having to protect the right to "Ugly Speech", and ugly speech is always by some measure (to their recipients) an abuse of that freedom. And words can hurt, they hurt, but they don't kill those you say them to. More importantly if you consider the majority of people to be of reasonable intent, then by adjusting the scale of sensitivity in the culture, you influence social pressures in ways that remediate and reform, the mores and behavioral norms of that culture without having to take legislative action. And by that process, you safeguard freedom, and limit abuse. If you believe the majority of people to not be of reasonable intent, and therefore the concent of that majority unachievable to carry out this process, then you must take the inverse action. You must limit said freedom through legislative means. That involves submitting the proper norms of action to the judgement of a judicial commitee, and enforcing there ruling through the authoritative agencies. An authority applies the ruling of a law, that means (in theoretical absolute) that even at its softest, it does not look to generate concent, but submission to the legal application of that law. This process compounds as follows: firstly, forbidding someone from saying something does not dispense them from thinking it. Rather they will feel the oppression of a permanent moral judgement against their personal values. Once you put that judgement into law, you will loose their consent into feeling like an equal member of that society, and you will be forced to take authoritative measures to enforce these principles. These authoritative measures will be felt as an oppression to those subjugated to them and they will look for ways to free themselves from said oppression. Within this reasoning we have reformed Free Speech on a legal level because the majority of people could not be trusted to speak (and therefore think) within our reasonable boundaries. So what is the most peaceful thing the majority may look to do if they do not find themselves completely elated from the oppressions of Free Speech. Probably change the government through a referendum, and that can go really well. A movement begins, a new party comes up, claims they will reform the current government, they win, take charge and make people happy. Or it can go like this This is a student movement not so different from a modern day BLM. Once you've crossed that threshold, and by no means are we anywhere near that. You are officially in a system that can only survive if it forever keeps increasing oppressive measures against its own people like (as they say in ancient China) "filling a cup with no bottom". In that system, your words still cannot kill those who hear it, but they are now lethal to you. Try saying "Winnie the Pooh" in China, and I know what you're thinking, "Winnie the Pooh" is banned, why don't I say "Fuck Winnie the Pooh". That's clever, try that Write me from prison Increase Freedom -- generates consent -- reform values to limit abuse Limit Freedom -- generates distrust -- increase oppressions to enforce submission

  • Those in power don’t want free speech, the group in power is one always trying to restrict speech to maintain their control. Every single great movement over the last two hundred years occurred because of free speech. In turn, all of the world leaders that murdered, tortured, and enslaved their populations restricted speech in order to control the public.

Then turns around and makes fun of the side he doesn't agree with, says that the other side is just wrong and they need to change. What happen to acceptance? He also laughed a joe talking about things he doesn't agree with several times. This guys is so full of himself, huge narcissistic.

  • Conservatives (and fascists) love to cliam they are 'pro-free speech' and 'anti-cancel culture', but it's the opposite. That's why the Republicans are proposing a bill that harshly targets and discriminates against protesters and absolves motorists who hit them with their vehicles. Yet you won't find Carlson, Hannity, Shapiro, Pool, Peterson, Rubin, Crowder, or any of the conservative 'free speech warriors' talking about it. Just like they wouldn't touch the unfair treatment of pro-BDS speakers. And it's the same here in the UK with the government's Policing Bill and their Neo-McCarthyite drive in the education system, including tackling 'anti-British bias' which is a pro-colonial, pro-empire propaganda and revisionist drive. To be free speech you have to defend the speech of those you disagree with, but conservatives only care about their own free-speech, and are therefore infact anti-free speech.

These attitudes have been held for thousands of years, and are inherent in even their children, just as our cultural attitudes reflect in our children.

Statements of fact are not racist, as they make no judgement, only observation as to compatibility.
