Das rite!

I bet those guys could do that for years but if I were in a certain mood they’d be thinking I was some kind of **** they’ve never seen before.

A school having a business class is more dangerous than klan rallies.

I disagree cause they're probably learning something at the rally.

Good point. The Klan doesn’t weaponize tuition and debt, however.

I don't think that's even necessarily true. They have hate speech laws in Europe which are tantamount to govt censorship and are supported by many leftists.

The real question is if you actually believe speech is violence then why don't you support state censorship. The state prohibits forms of violence all the time.

You can use that same argument to advocate legalizing any other form of violence. Basically there's not a single law you can justify, using that framework.

Most anarchists I've come across seem to understand that advocating for certain laws while the state still exists is not at odds with the belief that eventually they would like to see the state disappear.

Or Google's job.

Can you explain to me what harm is being done by hate speech laws on the books in other countries right now? I don't see how they aren't addressing the same problem you are talking about. The idea that corporations can responsibly thought police but the govt doing it is a slippery slope seems like a rather peculiar pov to me.

I'm not being hyperbolic. I didn't say they were coming to jail you. I'm asking how those hate speech laws are doing more harm than good. First you said you just don't trust the government to determine hate speech (and so I pointed out that for some reason you do trust corporations to do so) and now you're apparently saying instead that the consequences are too steep. The consequences for other forms of violence are also that you go to jail. Do you disagree with that as well?
