We should all test the limits of free speech.


It is so fragile, the tenuous grip we have on free speech.


Careful what you wish for.

If the hold on free speech is tenuous, imagine how weak is the will to protect it.

Sorry to burst your bubble but they were not calling for blowing up Mount Rushmore.
And you forgot to add a link.
www.vice.com...



Congratulations you got to the revised story AFTER they took the "blow up Rushmore" down.

Look at many on this site who gladly and enthusiastically try to silence free speech.

Hardly anyone is protecting it because they either don't want to or have never felt the need to.

They're laying the groundwork now to remove it.

Sorry buddy for it not fitting your narrative.
Here's the article VICE referred to from the right-wing news site The Daily Caller:
It's Time To Blow Up Mount Rushmore

I know you are joking, but think about it. With everything that is going on, doesn't it at least seem like a probability?

What do you mean? The Daily Caller was the one who made that headline and wrote their article. Vice poked fun at it.
Do you understand the concept of humor and mocking? VICE even apologized for the usage of the headline.

Absurd. I suppose the prevailing narrative is that the Egyptians used slaves to build the pyramids, so let's blow those up as well.


Hey !

That's mis-information.

No slaves were used to build the pyramids.

All workers on the pyramids were "paid" labor. There are records of these payments.

Apologized and removed the tweet, according to the captured screen shot.

But all is well, they said they are sorry.

For the headline? Sure. They apologized because of right-wing snowflakes getting triggered by it. Can't keep everyone happy I guess.
BTW they didn't remove the tweet. I checked. It's still there. Oh I see what you mean. They changed the headline. Well I guess to keep the sensitive snowflakes happy.

Triggered by blowing up a national monument?

Different strokes I suppose.

No. Triggered by a bad joke.

What, Lefties lynching people? You damn right it is a possibility, it is up there at the top of their favorite wet dreams.

I would think it's more like Alt-Right, White Supremacy and KKK favorite wet dream.

Well perhaps Vice should leave the jokes to someone who is not delivering news. But passes are given from lefties or righties.

Sad.

Correct, the left usually riots.

The far right news site was the one who first created that headline, not Vice.

Vice has some great journalism. I hope this was at least half in jest.



Do "great journalists" write in 1/2 jests? Or is that a free pass given to certain orgs?



.



I said they have great journalists. I'm not giving a pass to whoever wrote that.

Even FOX has some decent journalists.

It was a joke, mocking that far right-wing news site's article with that headline. People jumped to conclusion without actually reading. Vice apologized for triggering people.
