Sorry but the ‘supremists’ that are constantly terrorizing us have other names. This label has lately been used as a political ploy to make it seem that there is a threat.. while, in fact, in recent years we have found extreme liberal groups to be the ones who really made the trouble or created a scam and pretended it was an opposing political party. We need to be very careful in general but I think this is a smokescreen.

How in the world is this permitted?!
February 23, 2023 2:42 pm

Is this really included in the right to free speech?!

ABSOLUTELY NOT!

NO!

Free speech

February 23, 2023 6:02 pm

Why yes, yes it is.

You don’t have to agree with it but the Constitution guarantees free speech.

When a government begins telling you what you can and cannot say then you need to worry.

These people are free to state that they hate whatever group they want.

Yes it is

People are allowed to say whatever they want. It’s awful, but Ita permitted.

Of course it is

How could it not be? What kind of freedom of speech would we have if this could be stopped? No freedom at all.

Freedom of speech by definition means the freedom to say things that offend other people. Speech that doesn’t offend anyone doesn’t need protection or freedom! A country where people can be arrested for saying things other people don’t like is not a free country, it is a tyranny.

Crimes aren't free

No, encouraging illegal activity is not protected free speech.
(General “hate speech”, though, is of course protected speech. )

don”t go to slaughter like the sheep our grandparents were. Get LEGAL guns and protect yourself. Remember what the Rebbe said when asked if another holocaust can happen: “Tomorrow” was his answer!!!!!!!

Do you have a source for that? As far as I’ve heard the rebbe said there will never be another holocaust

I’m trying to remember who it was, I think Elie Wiesel where he asked if he thinks it’s possible for those countries to do it again and the Rebbe answered that tomorrow it could happen.

Obviously it’s always good to daven and to add in security mesures because the well being of every single jew is important -not one Jew shouldn’t even get a scratch-

Legal guns

Get a gun? In NY? Good luck.

Remember the big scandal where people were paying off the police to get gun permits? When you had to pay cash to exercise a Constitutional right? That’s a perfect example of why these permits and limits lead to corruption.

This is what happens when people elect the people currently in office. Only the protectors of the elite are allowed to have guns.

Never mind that pesky 2nd Amendment right.

A gun will protect you?

February 23, 2023 6:25 pm

I recall the Rebbe saying the opposite, that another Holocaust will not happen. Could you please kindly provide the link?

Regarding physical protection, I recall when someone asked the Rebbe if wearing a red string around your wrist to protect yourself from the evil eye is a good idea, he replied that a good protection is increasing in Torah, Mitzvos and good deeds.

white lives matter is made up of crazy, racist, bigoted people. these kkk and neo nazi groups only feel more emboldened thanks to the republican conservative agenda. this is what happens when we allow someone like trump to get to the white house. this is also precisely why we need to continue promoting progressive liberalism that enables all people of all races and religions to live with dignity and respect. the republican party is trying to enforce a white america and erase the history of others. vote for democrats and protect our Jewish community and all minority communities!

Violence and antisemitism comes almost exclusively from Islamists, black supremacists, Marxists, and other Democrats. There is NO antisemitism in the Republican Party. None whatsoever. It is not tolerated. Unlike in the Democrat Party, where antisemites are honored and respected and given powerful positions.

Sheer nonsense, radical elements of both parties are socially dangerous, anti Israel and antisemitic.
Both Biden and Trump are equally unfit to occupy the White House.
Both GOP and DNC need to find candidates who will be effective leaders who conduct themselves with dignity and moderation.
Neither sociopaths or feeble-near-geriatrics are suitable for the 2024 presidency.

American Conservative Racism
February 23, 2023 4:33 pm

Major leaders of the republican party are banning books and the teaching of classes on the history of black people and Jewish people. They are repealing women’s rights and the rights of alternative communities. Is it any wonder that white supremacists are taking advantage of this wave of conservative racism? The nazis banned books and twisted history too. These are all warning signs that worse will come if we do not stand up and act now

No one is “banning books”; they’re having them provided at an age-appropriate level.

No one is “banning the teaching of classes on the history of black people,” but of classes that distort said history for racist purposes.

As for “repealing women’s rights,” that would be those – your beloved Democrats – who say that a man can claim to be a woman, and then have the right to enter women’s private spaces, claim sports records that should be theirs, etc.

Horrible

I pray for the safety of all Jewish communities and all other minorities who are suffering under this weight of discrimination. Hashem should send Moshiach swiftly so that we can finally live in a world of total equality and equity. We all have a responsibility to stand against racism and that will G-f willing help bring the final geulah

The ADL is a secular leftist Obama group that is making tens of millions of dollars by milking the government for funding fake educational material. The past head Abe Forman announced he was boycotting Israel because they want to impose more Yiddishkeit in its society with the new government.

If the organizing groups are enticing violence against specific groups of people, then it is not simply an issue of ‘free speech’. Encouraging violent behaviour should be a criminal act – it is in Canada. Speaking nonsense, even if it is hateful nonsense, is much harder to regulate.

This sort of thing is illegal only in tyrannies like the USSR or Europe, Israel, Canada, or, well, pretty much everywhere except the USA, which is why the USA is the only decent country in the world. All other countries look like they are free, until you look closely and see that they are really dictatorships.
