Every time some Right Wing liar or bigot says or does something to horrify Normals and ends up facing consequences such as getting dumped by NIKE like Kanye for blabbering about his Hitler love, or getting dumped by every newspaper except Der Sturmer like Scott Adams for spewing nutty racist rants on Twitter, or getting dumped from Twitter like Trump after his violent insurrection, or being told to shut his rebellious trap by his bishop like James Altman, or getting dumped by FOX like Tucker Carlson for being a deadly liability to his employer, the Right Wing Lie Machine, both MAGA and Reactionary Catholic (but I repeat myself) drags out the stupid word “cancelled” and then starts lying that there is a “liberal war on free speech in America”.
Here reality: when the Right Wing Lie Machine, as is their custom, starts whining about “free speech” and the first amendment, remember that the only thing the first amendment does is forbid the state from forbidding or compelling speech.
The latter point matters, because it means that no person or private media corporation is bound by law to publish or platform somebody like Kanye, Trump, Carlson, or Scott Adams. Their free speech rights have not been infringed in the slightest. They can, if they choose, go on expressing his repugnant and inhuman views to their heart’s content, screaming at the traffic or talking to fellow racists in their creepy little internet hidey holes. But nobody owes them a platform, just as I do not have a constitutional right to force the Washington Post or the Seattle Times to publish my magnificently funny Dad Jokes.
Ye, Trump, Carlson, and Adams got what they richly deserved and the refusal of Normals to platform them is an exercise in liberty, not an infringement of Free Speech. Nobody owes them a thing.
The flip side of this, of course, is that those media corps and personalities who choose to defend and amplify such people, such as the massive racist Elon Musk and his Twitter plaything, are in fact, actively choosing to amplify racism and even Nazism, which is in turn a plea for the suppression of human rights (including free speech rights) for their victims.
Every syllable the Cult speaks about “reverse racism” is and always has been BS.
That’s because the Right Wing Lie Machine and the MAGA cult’s deeply ingrained spiritual habits are founded in a satanic nihilism devoid of intelligence or virtue. So the Cult cannot even say “We’re as good as you” to those they hate. They can only say “You’re as bad as us.” Therefore, they lie and accuse as Satan lies and accuses: by using accusation as a form of confession that reflects their own evil. That is why the People of the Lie screaming that their free speech rights are infringed are silent as hell about their own cult leader’s real and actual attempt to really use the might of the state to overturn legitimate free speech.
