Free speech means all speech, even the kind that's reprehensible and you would never utter yourself. Why? Because when you start limiting what we can say, you put someone in charge of deciding what constitutes hate speech, rather than just letting the common sense of the general public who hear the person decide. And say that person in charge has an agenda(what!?), and wants to persecute a certain group, or anyone who disagrees with the powers that back them. This is what's known as a slippery slope.

Right. That poll is meaningless though, likely fudged and more importantly the woke and broke Millenials will be squashed by Gen-Z which realized that the leftoid jig is up.

Actually, gab.ai will say nigger, but it will not talk about racial differences in intelligence.

Touchy subject for me. I got in trouble in elementary school for calling a black kid a nigger. He was bullying so I just called him that. Funny part is I now have a black child. Life comes full circle I suppose. That kid when I was a kid was being a nigger though. No different than the white trash that went to my school.

My wife calls me an ass hole all the time. Am I offended, no. She's calling me the thing that shoots poop out. Not sure how nigger is in any way offensive besides feelings. I'm called a dirty shit shooter every day. I think that's more offensive.... lol.

The black community has found power in being able to use nigger as a fuck you stick to hit whitey with and the rest of society has decided to back it up. I remember the last time I said nigger in front of my immediate family of brothers, sisters and parents. You’d have thought I shot someone. Nigger is no different than any other word used to make someone feel bad. There’s power in owning words because blacks can say it any time they want.

My kid was called a cracker at school by some little Indian shit and didn't know how to respond. I sat him down and delivered a lecture on what to call every little colored shit in situations like that. Told him I'll back him up in front of the school admin if he gets in trouble, but only if he's not the one to start the exchange.

PS. It's not even that I'd be specially offended if I was called a cracker, but I think that upholding the principle of reciprocity is important.

A re-comment from paper books thread, but the original word was niggur. Used by mountain men/trappers to describe someone who is a roughneck, troublemaker, one of their own basically. NOT racial until the 1920's...

Exactly. I've told teachers in the past if my daughter has someone picking on her, she's authorized to use force, and I won't blame her, I'll blame them, as they're only adult supervising at the time. And I've talked my daughter through what constitutes an appropriate response escalation, so first isn't step one unless the other kids start with physical.

Let's not forget these other important words!

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/nigger#Etymology


Etymology
Probably immediately from French nègre or Spanish and Portuguese negro (“a black African”); ultimately from Latin niger (“black”), thus a doublet of negro and noir. Compare Danish nigger, Swedish nigger, German Nigger, Dutch nikker. First use appears c. 1577, in the writings of Edward Hellowes (fl. 1574–1601).

I don't see any sources to back up the early usage assertion, and American English has created a number of specific words. See our measurement system for one example(based standard human body measurements).

Grant is just a travel writer, but he put a LOT of research into American Nomad. I'm taking his word over Wokeapidia.

Ugh... this topic is pertinent to me. Most I'll dox myself here. I'm literally uncle Tom. I live with my nephew and that's how he addresses me anytime he talks to me. Not a joke. I have to hold back laughter every time. A black kid living with whites and 3-10 times a day he says uncle Tom.

I have explained what it means, but he just doesn't care probably because he fits the definition. I laugh at it, but sometimes it gets cringe worthy in public when he says it. Hence why I needed to explain it to him. I'm still good 'ole uncle Tom. I just ask him that he doesn't say it in public. And yes I know they're just words, but people have laughed at him over it. I obviously interjected, but there are some dirt bags out there that do mock blacks. Including other blacks against each other. I've given up caring mostly. He's a good kid and this honkey is making that happen. Just words.

Seems like the new nigger is calling out Zionist terrorists:

The Right gets handed a free pass by the course of Events to smash Reds because they're harassing a Minority Group.

The ones already known are Leftard Rich Kids, Ex Interns and volunteers for Democrat and Leftwing NGOs, a few are professional activists with a long record of rioting -- the same exact kinds that organized and led the worst of the BLM riots.

Great opportunity to Hamstring the Far Left before this summer, when whatever Floyd 2 or Abortion mass protests or whatever the Dems have planned will happen. We could tie them up with bail, court proceedings, or probation terms that will require them to remain in the area and certainly in-state, may require them NOT to attend any protests for a time - preventing these Rich Leftist Reds from flying around the country fomenting riots.

It's usually RINOs who miss an opportunity, but this time its MUH PRINOPULS in a big purity spiral, and frankly because the Minority is disliked by Nose-ticers.

So advocate doing nothing, so the Right can snatch defeat from the Jaws of victory, not be flexible and agile and wise, refusing to exploit the Gift of the Rift, and find the absolute worst time to be scrupulous about Free Speech instead of nailing the Reds with misdemeanors however technical or minor.

Why Tik Tok ban is about banning free speech:


A cosponsor of the TikTok ban said in a closed-door meeting that congress moved to ban the app because “you’re seeing how these kids are being manipulated” to oppose Israel’s war effort. We obtained audio: pic.twitter.com/99Dygz0C2O— Ryan Grim (@ryangrim) May 5, 2024



Incredible mask-off moment: Romney and Blinken say that the ban of TikTok was directly because "the emotion, the impact of images has a very challenging effect on the narrative", the narrative being "Israel's PR".pic.twitter.com/WkIGTAXG2X

So if you aren't clear on this yet, supporting Zionists means you are against free speech, the cornerstone of this platform...

Unreal. Those maps are verifiably correct. This just demonstrates how ridiculous corporate media truly is. Either they did their due diligence & just got bullied, or they didn’t & admitted they don’t research their claims. The map is correct & it’s a bit both. How embarrassing. https://t.co/Eg3l7AQdp6

i bet your family got more upset than a black person would have. You see, your family feels a responsibilty to take care of blacks because in their minds, blacks need their help.

The funny this is, one of my sisters told all 3 of sons that she does not want them to bring black girls to the house. And my last day of my Sophmore year in HS, I threw a notebook on the floor on my way out of the dorm. The notebook got into the hands of the principle because I had written "I hate niggers" in it. Well, my father had to go to the school a week before my Junior year started and he and I had to talk to the Principle before I could attend. The Principle asked me where I got that language from and I pointed at my father. LMAO...they still let me attend that year. $$$ talks. They wanted/needed my tuition.

I did worse. Playing soccer at recess, I think 4th grade. Black kid a year older in 5th grade. Pushing me around like a punk. So I yelled at him to stop being a nigger... lol. Big guy, he probably could have kicked my ass. H ran to the teacher and sent me to the principles office. Then had to call my parents. Principle questions me and I'm like he was being one. Nothing else happened from it.

My dad was pissed, but previously I went with my mom to her 5th grade class she taught when I was in 3rd grade. Her students pulled me over to the globe in the classroom and pointed to Niger in Africa. Decent reading skills but pronounced it nigger. So my mom's students taught me about the word nigger. She said don't say it again but laughed a bit at the time. My dad wanted to smack the shit out of me. His mom, my grandma was a legit racist.

One other nigger incident but didn't involve any black people in person. We recorded a song while drunk in high school. All I'll say is it was bad. Like really bad. Over the top. Probably easier now but I had that one buddy that recorded everything we did in the 90's. So it's recorded and it's bad. He's got a ridiculous amount of footage on our high school crew. Him and I were latchkey, youngest kids with cars. I'm talking his parents moved to Wisconsin when he was 16, mine were gone 2 weeks at a time much of the year. We did what we wanted. I was still an all state athlete, so no slouch, but god damn did we have fun.
