.@JackPosobiec gets a scalp

Sleazeball #JamesGunn just got the boot

Any time you clowns on the Left want to call a truce and just live and let live

We're game
If not
Payback is a career medevac…
@JackPosobiec #JamesGunn joked about rape & pedophilia that is disgusting & worth a look to see if it was more than jokes

But speech is free until it's not
& right now it's mob rules if someone says anything edgy

Other than inciting violence
You fight speech you dislike
With better speech
@JackPosobiec If there is speech that promotes rape or especially pedophilia, that is a law enforcement matter

And yes it's fair to call for someone to be fired over heinous things like that

But we have to find a line between offensive & dangerous

Or the #SpeechPolice win
We must think hard about saying that offensive or even evil tweets should get you investigated

If they incite violence or sexual assault?

But there is a specific standard for that
"directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action"…
That essentially means
"You molest that kid"
And #SCOTUS added "likely to incite or produce such action"

The court overturned a law that "broadly prohibited the mere advocacy of violence."

Such as
"pedophiles should be beaten"

We must make sure we don't fight to weaken that
The Left weaponized their mobs to attack conservatives who says things that violate their PC speech codes

They have been very effective howling for the scalp of any offenders. The same standard has not been applied to the Left's many offenders who get a pass #LiberalPrivilege
We can be righteously mad about this & we should fight back
They must feel the same pain before any chance of a truce can be offered

I agree with almost every bit of this quality takedown

But in the end
It is a truce in favor of free speech that we want

The Left is much better at the outrage game & especially at the mobs enforcing a hecklers veto

Their goal is to make conservative ideas un-holdable
Speak them and be attacked and shunned and lose your livelihood
We can't win that game
Nor should we want to play it

But in the short term
We have to
And we must demonize their offenders (who are legion)
And support our own

Or Roseanne gets fired making a bad joke (unwittingly)
And Peter Fonda calls for child rape & his movie gets released
The advantage we have is the Left is so unhinged now
They are saying and doing things we Normals across the country
Cam't even fathom

This is creating a backlash against their entire PC Identity Politics Grievance Mongering system

We can beat them
But we must fight first
