We have embedded the full Campaign For Free Speech poll at the bottom of this story for you to check out yourself and as this story from their website reports, 'free speech' in America has become very vulnerable with America's younger generations pushing for socialism/communism and a whopping 48% of Americans polled believing 'hate speech' should be made illegal.
With half of that 48% actually believing that 'hate speech' should be punishable by prison terms while the rest believed mere fines or a ticket for 'hate speech' would do, the poll specifically points out that 'hate speech' was not defined, leaving that up to the individual participant. But as this March of 2018 story over at the Washington Post reported, America's college students are largely fine with 'free speech', unless it is speech that 'offends them'. How many easily offended snowflakes are there in 2019 America?
The Campaign For Free Speech story also reports that 80% of those Americans polled actually had no idea what the 1st Amendment protected with those polled believing the following statement to be true: "The First Amendment allows anyone to say their opinion no matter what, and they are protected by law from any consequences of saying those thoughts or opinions."
With America's younger generation's so dumbed down by the Communist indoctrination that they've been going through in our education system that 68% of those polled wanted to see speech restrictions placed upon social media, censoring 'racist content', 'neo-nazi content', 'climate change denial content' and more, the story wisely pointed out that when 'government' is in charge of policing speech, it inevitably becomes political—a weapon that can be used to punish people on the other side of an issue.
So the next time you hear a leftist saying that they believe 'hate speech' should be criminalized, you should ask them what they think about President Trump. And following the hate-filled drivel that will almost definitely come out of their mouth's with most leftists fully suffering from 'Trump derangement syndrome', tell them that if 'hate speech' were criminalized, they'd be going to prison for the hatred they just spoke about America's Commander in Chief.
According to this previously mentioned new story over at Market Watch, millennials in 2019 are hot on socialism and communism while capitalism is 'out' in their eyes. Showing the success of the communist indoctrination that we've been witnessing in America's school systems, as their story reported, those polled also found that the biggest threat in their eyes to world peace is President Trump, followed by Vladimir Putin then Kim Jong Un.
Helping once again to prove that 'Trump derangement syndrome' is on full display amongst America's younger generations, their story also reported: "The historical amnesia about the dangers of communism and socialism is on full display in this year’s report. When we don’t educate our youngest generations about the historical truth of 100 million victims murdered at the hands of communist regimes over the past century, we shouldn’t be surprised at their willingness to embrace Marxist ideas."
A new survey released by the Washington, D.C., nonprofit Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation reflects that, if the younger generation gets out and votes in 2020, those running for office on the far left have reason to be hopeful.
According to YouGov, which conducted the poll, capitalism, amid a widening divide between the haves and have-nots, has plunged in popularity from a year ago, with one out of every two millennials — ages 23 to 38 — supporting it.
Meanwhile, 36% of millennials polled say that they approve of communism, which is up significantly from 28% in 2018.
With the 2020 election looking more and more like it will be not only a contest between 'Republicans vs Democrats' but 'Capitalism vs Socialism', and socialism almost always leading to Communism and massive famine, widespread starvation, forced obedience to government and massive 'death by government' tolls, the next year could very well be the most important of our lifetime's with nothing less than Liberty at stake.
In the 1st video at the bottom of this story, videographer 'Computing Forever' talks with us about the alarming number of Americans who now believe that the 1st Amendment should be re-written to penalize so-called 'hate speech' but as the excerpt below from this new story at Reason points out, the fact that so many people from America's younger generation find the 1st Amendment to be unpopular is the very reason we need the 1st Amendment. It's also a grave warning of 'tyranny' for America ahead.
The First Amendment is unpopular…which is why we need the First Amendment. A recent survey commissioned by the Campaign for Free Speech underlines that point, finding that most Americans support viewpoint-based censorship, suppression of "hurtful or offensive" speech "in universities or on social media," government "action against newspapers and TV stations" that print or air "biased, inflammatory, or false" content, and revising the First Amendment, which "goes too far in allowing hate speech," to "reflect the cultural norms of today."
That last position was endorsed by just 51 percent of respondents, compared to 42 percent who disagreed and 7 percent who had no opinion. But 57 percent favored legal penalties for wayward news organizations, 61 percent supported censorship of "hurtful or offensive" speech in certain contexts, and 63 percent said the government should restrict the speech of racists, neo-Nazis, radical Islamists, Holocaust deniers, anti-vaccine activists, and/or climate change skeptics.
On a more heartening note, the idea of tasking "a government agency" with "reviewing" the output of "alternative media sources" mustered support from just 36 percent of respondents, although the opponents still fell short of a majority. Likewise with a law against "hate speech," which 48 percent favored and just 31 percent opposed.
"The findings are frankly extraordinary," Bob Lystad, executive director of the Campaign for Free Speech, told the Washington Free Beacon. "Our free speech rights and our free press rights have evolved well over 200 years, and people now seem to be rethinking them."
With the Campaign For Free Speech poll also proving that most Americans who want the 1st Amendment to be 'rewritten' also don't even know what 'Right's' are protected by that Amendment in the first place, we see just how well the indoctrination of America's children within the school system's is working here.
And if we want a small taste of what full-scale globalism will bring to America, all we need to do is take a look at what recently happened at a tax-payer funded venue in Utah as the Washington Standard reported in this October 26th story. As we also see in the 2nd video at the bottom of this story, a United Nations guard shut down an American journalist doing her job, calling the Utah venue funded by US taxpayers 'international territory'. In the United Nations we see 'global government at work'. with NO 1st Amendment.
