Is this not freedom of speech?


No it's potentially inciting a riot.

No it isn't. If a riot started as a result of a gorilla mask and a banana, then someone reacted to it with violence or threatening words. That person would be responsible for inciting a riot. One can demonstrate and suggest that someone else is acting like a monkey all he wants. It is not a call for violence, and it is not shouting "fire" in a crowded theater. It is simply something that pisses off some people. Their stupidity would far surpass Mr. Gorilla mask if they got violent over it.

So should we write in the constitution that freedom of speech except a gorilla mask and a sambo face?

But leave room for the cascade of other offensive names that hurt menchildren?

Would his own admission of trying to start something be enough?


For inciting violence yes, but civil rights?

See my earlier reply.

What does rioting and looting have to do with civil rights?

Totally different charge.

If blm was burning stars of David and mock burning jews then yeah.

You are correct though blm does get away with some pretty racist stuff. It's not a real centralized thing yet though.

Should we be offended at trees as well?




Since black people were hung from trees, and you can find post cards of this, even hand bags made from black people hides, this presents a particular specific historical circumstance.

There are already supreme court cases on the subject.

Freedom of speech was originally about political expression not personal attacks.

The charges are about civil rights, not inciting violence?

Members of BLM have trashed and looted cities. Called to burn this mother down. Is that a violation of civil rights?

you could sue a tree bc you are offended by it, but i don't think it would go over too well in court.

Do you know what civil rights are.

Burning this mother down in terms of the us is a political statement.

Burning these jews is not.

NO, that is violence and destroying property, way beyond violation of civil rights

Because what is considered race baiting is a moving target, yelling fire in a theater is measurable. When we "outlaw" certain speech it had better be for a good reason. If the people didn't like the ape holding bananas, they shouldn't have given him the time of day.

I didn't think that you were referring me as a race baiting or calling me names, and would laugh if you did.

What you are missing is it doesn't matter what he says, as long as it isn't a actionable threat.

What right so you have to touch someone because of their opinion, or free speech?


You will say anything to be right. Actionable? Putting on a custom? Action. Making a noose? Action. Showing up at what im sure he knew was a gathering of black people. Dont try to defend this. You have no ground to stand on on this one.

Again your not making clear points.

Did blm say burn these crackers down and riot and loot white people?

Or are some members so dumb they burned down their own neighborhoods?
