...“There is a line in the sand between freedom of speech and the right to use hate speech. Freedom of speech does not guarantee you that right….People will now quote Voltaire but he never had the benefit of going to the gates of Auschwitz and seeing where unfettered free speech ends up.” In other words, forget “I disagree with what you say but would defend to the death your right to say it”; now it’s “I will do everything I can to silence you, because the kinds of things I have to say are good for society while the kinds of things you want to say resulted in the Holocaust.” In the eyes of Hope Not Hate, then, freedom of speech engenders tyranny, and the tyranny of speech suppression strengthens freedom.
Could it be more Orwellian?Nope.
|Does free speech lead directly to "work makes you free"? That's what the Jewish censors believe.|
