It's now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an "illegal alien" when motivated by hate.

The restrictions violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense are outlined in a 29-page directive released by City Hall's Commission on Human Rights.

"'Alien' used in many laws to refer to a 'noncitizen' person is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as 'other,'" reads one passage of the memo. "The use of certain language, including 'illegal alien' and 'illegals,' with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination."


But wait...I thought Leftists told us that they only silence conservatives and ban freedom of speech on websites that they run. Or maybe just at the universities they run. And that they would "never" make it a crime to disagree with them. No....it actually turns out that Leftists don't believe in freedom of speech. Imagine that. What they believe in is obtaining total power, and getting that power at any cost. Communism is authoritarian, and wants to run every aspect of your life.

This is how the communist Left advances their agenda -- by force, intimidation, and coercion. Totalitarianism. They make it a crime to even speak out and oppose their agenda. Criminalizing speech. This is what you would expect in the Soviet Union, or communist China. Now it's here in America.

This is what Leftist/socialist governments have already done in Europe, Canada, and Australia -- use "hate speech" laws to destroy freedom of speech. In most European nations, they can't even criticize immigration policy or the fact that illegal aliens are invading and destroying their nations, or they face fines and even prison time. Same for homosexuality. Christian pastors can't preach God's Law from the Bible against homosexuality, or they face prison time.

There will no longer be freedom of speech, in a Marxist/Leftist run USA. Other socialist/Leftist-run cities and states will begin implementing these draconian policies more and more. Next it will be that you can't speak out against homosexuality or transgenders. Or say anything alleged to be "racist". Or deny the claims of those pushing the "climate change" agenda. Or say that you disagree with virtually ANY Leftist policy or position. Then, years down the road, a Democrat-run Congress will enact "hate speech" laws for the entire nation.

Not if Leftist judges are deciding the case. They do not honor the Constitution, and uphold it. They view it as an "outdated" document written by "old racist white men". To Leftists, concepts like freedom of speech and the right to own firearms are not sacred rights. To the contrary, the Communist Left is dedicated to the destruction of these rights. Their aim is to completely subjugate the people to the power of the (communist) State.

In their Marxist "utopia", the masses are disarmed. And they cannot speak out against the "official" position of the State/Establishment. Anyone who opposes the actions of the criminal socialist State is a "dangerous conspiracy theorist" who must be smeared and silenced -- e.g., Alex Jones and those similar to him. Anyone who speaks out against this tyranny is a modern "heretic". This is what "political correctness" is -- which is, btw, a communist term coined in the Soviet Union. The next step is passing "hate speech" laws making it a crime to oppose the Marxist agenda -- by labeling anti-Establishment views as "hateful", "racist", "dangerous", etc.

Alex Jones admitted in court he is an actor and his show is entertainment. His drivel is dangerous, at least. Carry on...
I once blocked Muggsy Bogues' shot at the Siskey YMCA.

So Alex Jones, and those who think like him, don't have a right to freedom of speech, and to speak their views?

Pretty sure after reading this multiple times, that is not what he said but as he did say, carry on.
