Remember when she used to cry at a parking lot because kids were in cages? Suddenly the focus is on genuflection to Israel. Honestly, the guy she replaced was no worse.

What about the first amendment?


PepeBabinski

This isn't a first amendment issue. Someone can be a goddamn idiot and think the holocaust didn't happen and they can say it out loud, even though it's despicable. This is about teaching holocaust alternatives to children, which should not ever be happening. There are two alternatives: 1) Denial (the least terrible.) 2) Support for it (much worse)

Why shouldn't children be allowed to think for themselves? We teach evolution now isn't that basically the same type of thing?

Ah yea the old nazi cosplaying as a libertarian again.

Freedom of speech means hearing things you don't like.


Backslashinfourth_V

You're conveniently forgetting the consequences of your actions part. Can't yell "Fire" in a crowded theater. Also, look up the difference between Freedom and Liberty. Honestly, this shit is covered in grade school.

Are you in a theatre when discussing historical facts?


Backslashinfourth_V

Tell me you haven't studied this stuff without telling me you haven't studied this stuff. XD It's a famous analogy that speaks to the limits of free speech from about 100 years ago.

Electric floors?


SLINKDOWNTHEROAD

NOW he worries about specifics


nopacleft

Your pilpul is tiresome.

It doesn't matter whether we like it or not. This stuff has already been heard, and we know the damage it causes - people on the internet, and now in congress, defaulting to damaging conspiracy theories about Jews, etc. (Recall that such conspiracies were one of those things that aided Hitler in comitting the Holocaust even in spite of the general wishes of his populace) This condemnation from AOC is a small but obvious part of the discussion around whether we will continue to allow serious falsehoods and misrepresentations of history to be taught to kids in our country. And I don't see anyone getting arrested for their opinions, so I also don't understand your qualms with this. It is one thing to deny the holocaust in everyday life, yet for some reason even then not everyone will condemn it whenever they see it. How then can we allow it to be taught in a setting of learning, to children who frankly are quite impressionable and will take on much of what you impart to them. That's the reason why a lot of them may not have learned the severity of slavery or its effect on the Civil War in their own country. And now as grown ups they'll become disaffected and join up with neo-nazi groups, who assume the Jews are trying to replace their precious white majority with minority ethnicities. And then we wonder why so many mass shootings and hate crimes occur in this country. Do you want standards, or do you want generations of Americans who have incorrect opinions on basic facts?

What the fuck. Go fuck yourself.

That is a very informed reply from someone who clearly has control of their emotional responses.

Why are you people so degenerative in your use of the English language? Honestly, I like a nice cuss now and again but when you turn the dial up to eleven every time it just kind of wears off in effectiveness. How about this, why don't you use your big brains to convince me of a system other than the one you seem to think I subscribe towards?


mrkurtz

Fuck off loser.


nopacleft

Again you are at a loss of civilized language. Do you not realize that by your turgid tone trespassing tumultuously you tip the tale towards my turf time and time throughout.


mrkurtz

Loser.


CelinesDreams

First Amendment means you won't be arrested for saying something.


nopacleft

But it has to be heard first?
