edit: the future implications of banning white supremacist speech would be continued ban of white supremacist speech w0w!
it sets the precedent that you could ban certain groups' ability to communicate. it's not a slippery slope. societal consensus is not always on the right side

i have no choice /but/ to be vague. you have to think of the future when writing laws.

the second amendment didn't predict mass shooters, and now look

edit: i just want to clarify that i'm NOT SUPPORTING WHITE SUPREMACY i'm black. alright. alright clarification over

oh okay so no current groups but some unknown groups in the future may be wrongly impacted by cracking down on white supremacist rhetoric

Her point is that the law that went into place could end up being defined as like "Assembly or communication contrary to the common good" or something that could also be used to harm the kinds of assembly or speech -we- like if people who don't think like us get into power.

But I don't agree that the law would be worded that way. Canada has laws against hate speech and incitement to violence, and I'm struggling to think of any time I've seen them misapplied.

cracking down on white supremacist rhetoric isn't the thing that's wrong; it's the instrument through which you're suggesting it happens that i take issue with

perhaps there is a way to pass a law that could crack down on white supremacist hate speech, but you have to be /very careful/ with the way you word it

no it's not it's quite literally why gun control in the us is so tricky to implement

then you lack access to premade cakes, which is bad but you could still go to a store and make a cake, which is a relatively easily producible product OR buy another treat that tastes just as good to you, like a pie

this example breaks when every dessert shop imaginable bans you and stores ban you from buying the basic commodities to make desserts.

Something that hasn't been mentioned explicitly yet, but that I think about every time, is the way mass media treats perpetrators.

I imagine the heavy exposure probably is an added motive to commit violence to some extent, as an example from these events: do you think we'd all know of and/or read some manifesto posted by the El Paso murderer on 8chan if he wasn't a murderer? I'd imagine not; he'd be mocked or lauded in his corner of the internet, and the general public wouldn't even see it. Big media focuses so heavily on and gives so much attention to the perpetrators of crimes over victims and delves into who they were, I'm sure in some capacity it's perceived as a means to an end, a means to get their word out there to a huge national/international audience and perhaps incite others to their cause.

As a slight tangent to the internet, I remember years ago seeing threads about body counts and high scores in regards to mass murders on 4chan and probably other places (in the era of the VA Tech shooter and Elliot Rodgers), which kind of ties back into curtailing spaces where people feel emboldened to make statements like that, not only racist and extremist takes but from a position otherwise detached from the repercussions (I guess) of social norms and expectations.

A lot of spaces like that wind up lauding mass murderers for their activities and others still will have tumblrs or something dedicated to fetishizing mass murderers and writing creepy fanfiction about them. Even shit like Pumped Up Kicks kinda falls into this category.

I'm not even sure where I'm going with this at this point, but I can say that it's getting a little bit better -- with this alone I've seen a lot less full naming and a lot more "El Paso and Dayton shootings" and "El Paso Shooter" than times in the past. I'm not trying to vilify the media either, I suppose I just come from stuff like this with a bad taste in my mouth a lot of the time. These people don't deserve the reward of attention for being murderers I guess is my point.

Isn't The Daily Stormer (just a link to the Wikipedia article btw) a pretty good example of this? Lousy with hate speech, blacklisted from most places, exists primarily on TOR & the dark web now.

edit: nvm apparently they're back on regular www through some Chinese ISP, what a terrible discovery

wiki definition
"Hate speech is a statement intended to demean and brutalize another, or the use of cruel and derogatory language on the basis of real or alleged membership in a social group.[1] Hate speech is speech that attacks a person or a group on the basis of protected attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.[2][3]"

"The United States does not have hate speech laws, since American courts have repeatedly ruled that laws criminalizing hate speech violate the guarantee to freedom of speech contained in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.[10] There are several categories of speech that are not protected by the First Amendment, such as speech that calls for imminent violence upon a person or group. However, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that hate speech is not one of these categories.[101][102][103][104][105] Court rulings often must be reexamined to ensure the U.S. Constitution is being upheld in the ruling on whether or not the words count as a violation.[106]"

Right, there's a legal definition for hate speech, but hate speech is still protected by the First Amendment

the joke of first ammendmant dumb america laws and shit is that apparently its fine to oppress and ostracize an entire community or group of people under the guise of it being free speech, but would that not mean that the group that is being persecuted and shit suddenly lost their ABILITY to make free speech?

so free speech is basically "if you have the ability and power to say whatever the fuck you want, then its fine and should be allowed", yet lets not even think about the people who are actually being targetted by this who literally can't use free speech to defend themselves, like lol
