Danielle D’Souza Gill: A Godless Society Is the Root of All the Evil
"At various points throughout its text, the holy Bible of the Christian religion reveals signs importance of what will happen during what is known as the end times. These signs include the passage in Isaiah warning about people who call good evil and evil good. And a passage in Matthew and Mark that says children will give their parents up to authorities who will put them to death. Then there's the book of revelation, which focuses specifically on the end times. This book details such portents as the mark of the beast, a symbol of allegiance to the Antichrist without which you aren't allowed to buy food or work. And of course, we can't forget the four horsemen of the apocalypse, deception who rides the white horse, wore on his red horse, famine on the black horse, and finally disease on the pale horse. Given that these are all things associated with Antichrist, Satan, and ultimate evil. You would think it would be smart PR to avoid any semblance of them when forming policies that touch the everyday lives of people around the world. Yet, when it comes to the left, the values and ideas of the Antichrist are central to their branding. There is no better example of the practice of calling evil good and good evil than corporate virtue signaling. Think about the standard corporate stance on things like children and gender. Balenciaga's ad campaign comes to mind, as but one small example of countless others. Also note that these virtues are strongly aligned with the goals and ideals of the political left. In fact, the far left ACLU is now dispatching an army of 50 attorneys to Arkansas in order to stop the passage of a bill meant to protect innocent children from insane and unnecessary surgical mutilations.
If You Assert That There Is No God...
"Assert that there is no God, that is not kind of neutral, secularism, it ultimately is a nihilism that leads to a cynicism that is diabolical. If you're passionately motivated by keeping abortion legal, you do worship the devil, whether you know it or not. You are a worshiper of moloch and you are helping the blood sacrifice to continue. And it's no accident that the temple of Satan is a co litigant. Amicus Curie briefs on behalf of preserving abortion rights because it claims that abortion is a religious ritual in the worship of Satan. And the left wing groups like the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, they don't renounce it. They don't say, oh, we want nothing to do with that. They welcome them as cool it against.

Then you have Maxwell frost right here in Orlando said, as a national organizer with the ACLU, I pushed Joe Biden to agree to abolish the Hyde amendment and act that has limited abortion access for millions of people.

Border Patrol Union to ACLU: 'Go to Hell'
"You know, to people who call me an election denier, go to hell. Go to hell, that's our theme today on the Mike Gallagher show. I'm quoting the border patrol union. The national border patrol council tweeted to the ACLU, we read this morning that the ACLU is upset that border patrol agents have the audacity to defend themselves. We have a response for them, go to hell. Well, that's my response. To those loonies on the left, those un American degenerates who don't think we have a right to speak up, go to hell.
Nevada ACLU requests probe into alleged partisan hand-count
"Nevada's ACLU as requested a probe into an allegedly partisan hand count Nevada's American civil liberties union wants the Republican Secretary of State barbarous sagacity to investigate why a GOP volunteer packing a handgun on her waistband kicked one of their observers out of the room where mail in ballots were being hand tallied It happened last week in Nye county a rural area 60 miles west of Las Vegas which has about 33,000 registered voters Night county commissioners voted for a hand count of every ballot in response to complaints by residents that echoed conspiracy theories about voting machines interim clerk Markov says the observer that was kicked out was tallying votes on a notepad something that is not allowed After just two days the hand count was shut down Nevada Supreme Court issued a ruling that the count had to be conducted in a way that prevents the public release of early results The ACLU had complained that among other things officials were reading the candidate's names out loud from the ballots within hearing distance of public observers confess says he submitted a new hand count plan to the Secretary of State's office that he hopes to get approved this week I'm Jennifer King
Reaching the Finish Line With JD Vance
"Tim Ryan, the pretend moderate, calling for a release of half of all the federal inmates, play cut one O three. Thank you. You've made an ACLU commitment to reduce mass incarceration by 50% during your presidency. So speaking of that commitment, can you walk us through how you would go about doing it? Yeah. There's a lot we have to do. And it ties into a lot of other areas. But I would personally try to start with marijuana laws and getting marijuana off the schedule. Man, just open up our prisons. By the way, anyone who panders like that with the ACLU should not be a senator for the state of Ohio. Because ACLU are the same people that are cousins and sister organizations to people that want to legalize all drugs and then meanwhile, fentanyl is destroying the people of Ohio. People need to know about this. Yeah, that's exactly right, Charlotte, actually our team just identified a video of a couple of days ago where Tim Ryan said that he does want to abolish all limitations all legal penalties for drugs, including fentanyl, which, you know, it makes me realize Charlie like both at the individual trafficker level at the Mexican drug cartel level. And even at the level of China, which of course is manufacturing this fentanyl, the Democrats want to go easy on everybody that's causing this drug problem in the state of Ohio at all across the country. I just got to say Charlie sort of separate the substantive disagreements that I have with Tim Ryan. I watched that clip of him and I think to myself this guy after we beat him is going to have a great career as a used car salesman. There's just something about his voice or about his manner where, you know, it's like he's got a great 1994 Buick. It runs like new and he's going to give you a great deal on it. That's his entire ethic that's his entire attitude. And I think because of it, we're going to do very well in November.
Nevada Supreme Court allows early hand-counting of votes
"There will be early hand counting of votes in one Nevada county I'm Lisa dwyer The Nevada Supreme Court has ruled that a rural Nevada county can start hand counting mail in ballots two weeks before election day But the county won't be allowed to live stream the tallying in order to make sure the voting results aren't accidentally released The state Supreme Court said that that plan was just too risky The ruling is in response to an emergency petition filed by the ACLU of Nevada which challenged nigh county's plan to start hand counting votes as early as Wednesday The hand count will take place alongside machine tabulators the court also ordered the county to require observers to certify that they will not release any information regarding the vote count process early I'm Lisa dwyer
The ACLU Fights to Allow Children to Defy Their Parents
"ACLU files complaint against Pennsylvania school district for requiring parental consent for student gender transition. The ACLU was just another leftist chaos inducing society destroying organization. It is not worthless. It is harmful. It is gone from a time where it took civil liberties seriously. To trying to figure out how to stay in business when civil liberties well, ironically, I was going to say, are so insured, but they're not.

Montana defies order on transgender birth certificates

The Government Widely Uses Geolocation Data... And It's Troublesome
"There's a new report out from the ACLU. It's being amplified all over the media. And it reveals that the Department of Homeland Security in particular. But in fact, this applies to a number of government agencies. Customs and border, immigration, it refers to the Department of Justice, all of these departments have been purchasing and carefully reviewing and using cell phone geo tracking data. Now, the ACLU report is focusing on the privacy issue. What they show is that the federal government has been working with these private companies, there's one that's highlighted in the article it's called ventil, it's a data broker based in Virginia. So these data brokers are aggregators. They collect the data from the cell phone apps, and they sell it to commercial companies, but they're also providing it to the federal government. And the ACLU's point is that this is extremely troublesome. And it's troublesome in a general sense because it violates people's privacy. Now, the data brokers fire back by saying, wait a minute, people have agreed to the use of their data when they download these apps. But I think here the ACLU has a better point than no one actually is agreeing to these things. You're just scrolling to the end. You want the app, and so you end up consenting the things that you don't actually consent to, you're sort of consenting by default.

"Starting today, abortion providers in Kentucky can resume procedures, a Kentucky judge, but the Commonwealth's abortion ban on hold, at least for now. From member station Wu ky, Karen Tsar reports. After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned roe versus wade one week ago, a trigger law passed by Kentucky legislators in 2019 immediately went into effect. It essentially halted all abortions in the state, unless a mother's life was at risk. The ACLU of Kentucky filed a lawsuit on behalf of BMW women's surgical center and Planned Parenthood. The state's only to abortion providers. On Thursday, judge Mitch Perry granted a request for a temporary suspension of the trigger law. Tomorrow waiter is the state director of Planned Parenthood alliance advocates in Louisville. We're here to send a clear message the ability to control your own body and make your own medical decisions is a fundamental human right. David Wallace, the executive director of the family foundation in Kentucky, called the decision egregiously wrong. There are lives that are going to be lost because this judge took this action. And so that certainly extremely disappointing and just tragic. When the Supreme Court decision came down last week, amber duke, interim executive director of the ACLU of Kentucky, said EM women's surgical center canceled a 199 upcoming appointments and 15 patients waiting for procedures were sent home. Many, leaving in tears. Our clients had to turn people away and tell people who were there for appointments that they could not receive care. Both of Kentucky's providers have been guiding women to neighboring states for care. Kentucky Republican, attorney general Daniel Cameron, a staunch anti abortion supporter, declined to be interviewed following Thursday's ruling, but said they'd fight. Both sides will be back in a Kentucky courtroom

Elon Musk Says He Plans to Vote Republican
"So Elon is getting pressure from every possible direction. Elon is getting pressure from the security exchange commission. The Department of Justice has launched investigations into Elon. Again, Twitter is that central to what the regime wants to do over the next couple of years and decades. They are not going to let this go without a massive fight. So Elon is now asking the question, how many fake accounts actually are there on Twitter? How many people are actually legitimate and how many are illegitimate? Well, Elon is saying all the wrong things if he actually wants to take over Twitter easily. But he's saying all the right things for what we as conservatives and freedom lovers actually want to hear. Here's one. Elon Musk and cut 37 says he plans to vote Republican for the first time ever. Again, the fact that the world's richest man is now saying he's becoming a right winger.

And neither the Republican nor Democrat. And in fact, I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats historically overwhelmingly. I'm not sure I might never have voted for Republican just to be clear.

Sen. Rand Paul Unsure if Trump Would Return to Twitter
"Elon Musk confirming yesterday that if and when he gets control of Twitter, he's going to welcome Trump back to Twitter. Oh, look at this. Jack Dorsey, now a supports Trump returning to Twitter. The ACLU supports reinstating Donald Trump. Where were all those folks for the last two years, senator? All I can say is, you know, I've been threatening and threatening to quit Twitter and I quit YouTube because they censor me, but I haven't quit Twitter. But if Elon Musk takes over, it gets rid of the sensors, I love his irreverent sarcasm and he's actually just playing funny a lot of the times. And actually, I don't even know his politics. I think he may have a libertarian street tumor, I don't think he's either conservative or liberal. I think he's probably a mixture of a lot of different beliefs that the younger generation believes him. But it might not always agree with, but my goodness, do I agree with freedom of speech without question? I think he's going to make it a fun place again. But you know what? I doubt Trump will come back, you know, he's in a direct competitor now. He's got a bunch of money invested in this true social. So I would be very surprised if he came back to Twitter.
Will Chamberlain Shares His Thoughts on the SCOTUS Leaker
"Who is the leaker? Who leaked the draft opinion to overturn roe versus wade? What is being done to investigate this person and hold this person accountable? Well, the great will Chamberlain went on Twitter and just he went after it. I'll tell you what. He went after it in a way that was profound and was so compelling and the left is not happy. Well, welcome back to the program. Good to be with you. Apologies for the slight baby issue. But anyway, good to be with you. Yes, indeed. No problem. So will walk us through. We have some time. Who you believe the leaker to be? How did you come to that conclusion? And then how did the world react once you made it public? So, yeah. Well, I think the, again, we don't know because we don't have insight information or anything like that. I'm just facing this on what I was able to dig up publicly, but my guess, my guess is that the leaker is this clerk for justice Breyer named Elizabeth deutch. And there are two real basic reasons. One is that her academic and professional history demonstrates that she has a unique focus on abortion and reproductive rights. From the time she was in law school, her law school note, her fellowship at the ACLU, or clerkships, her op-ed writing, like they've all been laser focused on abortion women's issues. I mean, a good example would be that her law school note was focused on looking at how you could use the non discrimination provisions in ObamaCare to try and force Catholic hospitals to perform emergency

And Peter douchi asked poor Biden about it who barely knows where he is and Biden attacked the reporter Peter doocy saying you're putting garbage out there. He denied it's happening.

Sadly most of them still remain throughout the south. There are over seven hundred of these monuments. That's just wrong. Our public squares belong to everyone.

Your body is yours and yours alone your entire life and we teach this to babies the principles of liberty once their once. They're able to understand. Don't take that that belongs to someone else. Don't hit him. You can't do that. That's an invasion of their body. So the aclu is absolutely completely wrong here very good..

"How're you doing just fine. We generally talk to you about specific issues in the constitutionality thereof in. This case is a little bit different. We're kind of asking for a An educated An opinion i guess what do you what do you think about this. Yeah this one. There's some points in there about the artistry of racial tension in the country. But what they has to do with the second of them but is a particularly clear to me that was an their their provisions in the constitution. That you can criticise having been the product of compromises with slaveholding states. But that wasn't the second about that's about The notions that the framers had about what a what a good citizen was was cheerful and he was willing to serve his state and this country militia to be called up to active duty. If need be and that's not racial one way or another. That's just the way they sauces. Shut back out. So i mean i did. They do you think they did this to get conversations started. Well i think it's i think the yes. It's a rhetorical piece trying to stimulate debate on issues. That they think are a significant. Certainly they're always in our country or issues of racial. Justice are always something you have to be thinking about as you make policy make sure to be fair to everyone and i think they're trying to draw attention to some of the issues would see him. George floyd marches and that sort of thing where there are questions about interaction between the people who are armed and in other than than to beat up. People like george floyd what that has to do with the broader question of gun. Control the right to bear arms and all that. It's probably a step too far. It's just a little bit of the disconnected. And so that way it's sort of undercuts the strength of the argument to have made the overclaim that strong all right. You know it's It's it's so often the case that people are trying to people tried to Make modern points based on historical reference and very often out of context without really considering the history of the time. And i'm trying to do that with this thinking well when the when the constitution was adopted. i guess there was. There was slavery at the time but but the idea that That black people might be a threat by someday. Getting a hold of guns. I'm sure never crossed anybody's mind it. Just they're they're certainly things original constitution that are problematic in terms of race relations. For example three fifths compromise slave county just three fifths of a person for the accounting the house of representatives member stuff. That's problematic but the second amendment was just another amendment like due process or something it just wasn't pertinent to that debate and it was something they wanted to put in there as the way they saw Society ought to be structured that we moved forward a couple of hundred years. Now we have. Ar fifteen. we've always had our issues. It's always a trick to adapt the constitution facts that we have in front of us but it's It's just has an unusual history for an amendment. It's about voting or anything. it's about something else. But it's part of the way the framers seoul world back then but anyone can carry a gun. Today doesn't matter what your race color national i mean. Obviously i guess nationality if if you have a license were almost. That's the problem with this. Argument is one of the amendments says. Congress can't government can't and so if it can't make this person of deny them the right to bear arms. I can't do it. any other. Person applies across the board to everyone. So sort of by its nature. It's harder to tag. That kind of amendment is having some sort of racial animus when by space. It's you know really is one-size-fits-all just something. Government cannot do anyone while certainly inflammatory. The aclu actually had a commentary endorsed a commentary By ns santos a communications intern and the quest. The piece was headlined. Do black americans have the right to bear arms. Well yes for an answer. You know some kinda get stuck in these things. You just can't get out. It's like it doesn't guarantee your right to have a weapon or have a firearm. If you can't afford one or what have you. That's that's that's the problem but that's true of many other things in our society. That's that's not the constitution but are to a free market and free economy and that sort of thing is another part big part of how we structure our society so again that that may be taking it a little bit too far. They're legit points in there about how we all get along with each other. But not everything in. This world is a constitutional issue and this may have brought the constitution where it isn't really getting along the lines. Of course everything in this world is about racism now. I'm being facetious times touchy times. Sure all right. Thank you so much. David we appreciate it here. Happy to help out by by appreciate your your common educated Help there david cole.

A woman who clearly knows something about patriotism and sacrifice also knows that some women and men who have served honorably in the military in iraq and elsewhere had been undocumented and then after serving honorably in the military had been deported senator duckworth recently issued a report titled immigrant veterans deported by the nation. They sacrificed to defend the senators report. Cites the cases of ninety two vets deported between twenty thirteen and twenty eighteen. And she says the number could be much higher to the question with which we began this civil liberties minute. Did you know. Senator duckworth said in a recent interview with the new york times. People don't even know that we are deported. Veterans people assume that when they serve they gain american citizenship not so while there are executive orders laws and policies that can give veterans their status. These rules are often not followed in some veterans learned that their paperwork is not an order only when they are being handed over to ice to the good. The biden administration has announced plans to provide medical and other support for deported veterans. To try to return some eligible veterans. Who have been deported.

"I have it written down here. He is brilliant and has truly done it all. Hello thank you. You're so amazed that you even had time to join us this morning. Busy busy i was like oh. I didn't shower or change but here i have. We made it. The headband is iconic. Because it's like in all your updates that you do on it about what's going on legally. I'm here in my headband. To tell you about the law is i. I just gonna stay extra queer. Let's just be clear and we're gonna talk about the law so here we are still in the same bed banned from yesterday's update so i think most people probably know but this year has been horrible in terms of how many states are trying to pass laws. That are anti trans. That are against trans kids. Can you sort of take us through like why we're seeing this like surgeons in in these types of laws. Yes i can So yes so. Just to give overview there have been i would say around over one hundred and twenty bills introduced around the country targeting trans young people in particular majority and bama focused on trans kids from sports particularly transfer holes from girls for its healthcare for trans miners and unfortunately it was somewhat of catastrophic legislative session. Probably around fourteen of these bills ended up becoming law. Some states are still in session. So there's some possibility of more. And i mean i think we could look back like fifty years and trace their as we five years. I mean i think in some ways it's just the continuation of the same moralistic ganic about clearness and anything. That diverges from the sort of white christian heterosexual nuclear family like bryant volition. Topley like there's a long history here. And then i think in particular looking at the targeting of trans equal is very much like a backlash to marriage of allegations. Fifteen zanjani sixteen all the bathroom bills and then building up to where we are in twenty twenty one i think in some ways it was a response to the failure of the bathroom bills to really move and our success in for the ballot and then there was a real habit from our parents and real escalation. Globally anti trans rhetoric anti Money for anti transport. And then i think for twenty twenty one. What we're seeing is sort of like a lot of things like backlash to marriage back lasted. It's been court's decision from last summer in pasta clarifying civil rights protections biology geeky cube people and then also backlash to the election of president by And then sort of continued shift to the right particularly in state legislatures Ns sort of organizing principle for far-right government officials to try to mobilize airbase leading up to the two thousand twenty two midterms and now in the situation where the volume is so high but also the conversation is so cruel and so it's really just reached this point where we have to put in a lot more effort harvey sources because we're at really depressing sorta pivotal moment. Is it a coordinated effort like that. All of this is happening at once. It is in many ways. I mean i think we can look at their definitely some central groups that are finding it and organizing it alliance defending freedom heritage foundation. It's possible that you the right lane. Legislative group allen is involved but ab app is really In heritage are leading a lot of day. There's this coalition. they formed other groups. If you call the promise to america's children which is exceedingly rose but galleys bella. Language protecting women and children is used to do so much. Damage website is horrendous. Get it has is like ten point of basically. It's like how to protect america's children by killing transpeople in summary which is sailing jets. But it's but it's actually their goal in many ways than and they draft. A lot of the bills are very much involved in all negation. I mean i spent so much of my time reading. Aps breeze than and being subject to their thinking like may brain. Is it works and you know sad. What are the misconceptions that they're working with in terms of let's say transcripts in in healthcare yet i mean so there's so many in. I think with the transcripts in health care. This was like really took off the last two years where we have this discourse that blew up again largely starting in the uk where as joe is accuser being pushed into being trans through this notion of viral social contagion the internet and then having unlimited access to healthcare like. Wow that is not a world we live because nobody has access to healthcare and especially gender. Affirming health care So it's not like completely overblown rhetoric about what's happening And you know there's a lot of language to that incredibly paternalistic particularly about trans masculine people. This idea we've heard a lot about the disappearing lesbian for example. Which has everything to do with. If it's incredibly misogynistic discourse that takes away people's agency to know we are and the idea is well kids go online and learn about chance they become trans and then they like walk into the pharmacy and mike have surgery at age eleven. Which of course is completely ridiculous. Nope not happening and and any idea that somehow the pressure to be transit stronger than the pressure to be. This is just patently. Absurd right like we're living in a world that tells us we have to be. We're living in a world best signs the sex at birth every message we received basically from birth on is that we have that ways of being based on that and then yet somehow they've ruled this conversation that that there's there's like a trans lobby that's a line with a pharmaceutical company which companies which is like completely bazaar because we weren't accessing healthcare. This is healthcare. That was no one can receive. It's only provided. When parents are consenting doctors are recommending it would be bought access to health insurance starting incredibly conservative in terms of how it's administered and very much out of reach for a great majority of people recommended by medical association and then you have lawmakers coming in and being like is the greatest social experiment since the nazis near like editor beyond. And so that. I think is getting this over own rhetoric that were. We're dealing with an reading the while break when i was waiting to come on. I'm writing this brief in our one of our cases in arkansas States defense defensive their law and it is just so much about fear mongering about the idea that you know we could allow for people to determine who they are and how threatening people never want to. Can you talk a little bit about like what that healthcare actually involves. Yeah 'cause that's also something that's really misunderstood and our opponents are really good at weaponising people's lack of information to fill in the gaps and like the most terrifying ways they know how so generally when we're talking about trans young people in accessing medical care. I we're only talking about kids once they beach so before puberty when you're.

"I don't. I don't disagree that it's probably right that it's that that that we are probably being accurately descriptive of what the law can do. But that that's the only way this is but that's very well but you're not giving me a fair opportunity to respond and to respond. Not only in a defensive. The aco you've historic position and the historic position by the way of the entire civil rights movement and racial justice organizations and human rights advocates around the world because the alternative of going back to the pre Emergency standard when government did have more latitude and in other countries. It's still has more latitude to per to prevent and punish speech that it is not proposing such a direct emergency that gives the government too much discretion and that discretion predictably is used over and over and over again to silence. The voices of those you and i would consider to be on the right side of justice and we are not talking only about history one of the aclu clients. Today is derailed mckesson a national leader of the black lives matter movement who is being prosecuted and civilly sued for his civilly sued for a speech that he gave Advocating black lives matter denouncing police violence and police killing and that has been attacked as hate speech we know that government officials have attacked it as hate speech law enforcement and intelligence officials have attacked it as terrorist speech. There was a loss it that succeeded and lower courts trying to hold him and therefore the blm movement personally culpable because at one rally where he was speaking an anonymous person through some kind of brick and injured a police officers so they are being accused of having violated the brandenburg standard. And we know that critics of beal and other protesters are charging them With having instigated the assassination of police officers so if you want to loosen the standards and give the government more power to punish speech because of an indirect potential connection it might have to violence then mark my words. It is going to be precisely those who lack political power including advocates for racial justice pipeline. Protesters we've seen it all over the country we've seen the laws that have swept across this country seeking to punish protesters who are protesting the status quo. That's where the power balance lies. And that's why free speech is especially essential to the racial and social justice causes that the aclu is also fighting for league. Go ahead and respond to their professor. I of course am saying that people liked array deserve a defense i am. I am a forest advocating for arrays position. I think what's happening to him as wrong. And i'm glad the aclu is defending him. The question though on the table is whether or not the aclu has to defend everybody right like see the problem here. Is that the the nazi's fascist and the people that we're talking about. They're not hard for lawyers. All right josh hawley. Has lloyd agree. He can go he can go to. Vanessa wants to jones. Day can go defend the nazis if they want to. The nazis have warriors on their side. So why is it then. Why is it.

"Case. Are you saying you're you're. You're drawing a distinction. I'll let me get in on this in a minute. The distinction you're drawing just so it's clear for the listeners. If i have you write is people should be able to go into public intergroup and say i think we should kill jews and black people. That's okay saying let's go kill jews and black people right now is the only thing that's not okay. Is that an exaggeration. The only thing. That's not okay. Brian odd because the supreme court has recognised other exceptions to free speech and again the over arching principle that the supreme court enforces is It's usually call the emergency. Principal speech may be restricted when it directly imminently threatens or causes certain specific serious harm. And there's no other way to prevent that harm now in charlottesville. The tragedy was not the the speech couldn't have been more odious. The tragedy asks documented by a non partisan report that was commissioned by the city council. After the fact was that there was inadequate law enforcement at every level there was failure to adequately staff failure to communicate. We're heather higher and the other Demonstrators were mowed down. There wasn't a single police officer around that failure. Eleonore style back in on this e. Go ahead would it need that law enforcement. You wouldn't need or ops. You wouldn't need more police if you weren't having out here. Advocating for the death of minorities look if the brandenburg standard if the if the current supreme court standard where draws the line between speech and incitements of violence if that was a good standard if that was working as intended then donald trump and josh hawley and mo brooks would be in jail now. They're not they're not in jail right now because where we decided to draw the line between speech and incitement is wrong. It's not helpful. It's not working so no. I don't agree with the aclu standard. I don't agree with the supreme court standard of where we've drawn the line between incitement and speech. And i think again when we talk about the aclu's commitment and need. I agreed that we must have been speech. But when we talk about their need to defend nazis to defend wipe domestic terrorists loans. That what we are talking about is not speech. It is violence and we have to do a better job and we are capable of distinguishing between of distinguishing between speech and violence. It's not near it doesn't have to be this absolutist thing we're like everything you say except for like eight magic words is okay no we can do a better job we can have more nuance in this argument ellie. How do you respond to the argument that almost any censorious attitude affects less powerful minority groups in the long run. Even if policies restricting speech were meant to protect them short. i mean. that's not. that's not wrong. I understand that most of the time that people empower not going to be on my side. I i i accept that as a fact of life but what i reject. Is this again notion from free. Absolutists that the only way to protect me is to defend the people who would try to kill right. That is that is one of the white standards that we have in this country that somehow the only way to protect the speech rights of minorities and underrepresented groups is to is to zealously to the last defend this speech rights of the powerful majority. Who wishes to do harm. The difference the suggestion that we cannot tell the difference between protests for an extension of justice and equality versus rallies in favor of a white s. No state the the notion that the law is so myopic that it can't tell the difference is offensive to me..
