Righteous Riots and the Heckler’s Veto


From a fairly left-wing blog:

Don’t blame your lawlessness on others.

 

Even in our politically-correct, ultra-sensitive-to-verbiage times, folks have every right to express their feelings and beliefs about others, even the nasty ones, but only if they don’t trigger violence. Absolutely a paper-thin difference at times, right?

My response:
Wrong. The threshold is not speech that triggers violence, but speech which encourages violence. The right will not allow the left to target Milo or Trump w/violence, then turn around and say their supposed hate speech caused it.

The majority of the violence in the post-election America has been by progressives, angry because they did not get their way…or convinced that their righteous riots are justified somehow. It’s called the heckler’s veto, and the right is correct to oppose you on this. People who figure they are anti-fascists have become fascists…hoping the government, Twitter, Google or some adult organization starts shutting people up.

Be careful what you wish for.

    “Majority?” I think it’s spelled “entirety.”

    And the response to that image should be:

    “And I won’t tolerate any of your bullshit, pal.”

    I WILL NOT SUBMIT.
    I WILL NOT COMPLY.
    I WILL NOT SHUT UP.
    I WILL NOT SIT DOWN.
    I WILL NOT LIE DOWN.
    I WILL NOT ROLL OVER.
    I WILL NOT GO QUIETLY.

    …unless you shout “Allahu Akbar” and threaten to behead me.

    That’s totally different…

  4. Nobody asked for someone to lay down,give up or any of the other things. Just don’t break windows or call me a nazi because I disagree with you. The whole sign is a straw man.
