Free Speech

Sorry for the delay here folks, it seems that writer’s block has taken a toll on my brain that I couldn’t find the right things to write about. And there were a couple of events that I was ready to blow my mind off, such as the exclusion of transgendered peoples in the military or the North Korea/United States nuclear missile fiasco. However, something in my head told me to bite my tongue. That is until today.

White Nationalist, or terrorist as I like to call them, took to the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia to whine and cry their little hearts out about a statue of Robert E. Lee, a Confederate General, that is being proposed to be taken down in Emancipation Park. Counter-protestors (normal human beings with common sense) met the Nationalist halfway, and a fight ensued. The amount of fighting led to physical

Counter-protesters (normal human beings with common sense) met the Nationalist halfway, and a fight ensued. The amount of fighting resulted in physical violence, which resulted in one woman dying after James Alex Fields Jr of Ohio took his car and plowed through a crowd of counter-protesters.

What amazes me is that while reading comments on Facebook and Twitter, which I should avoid from now on, people in this country are preaching that the White Nationalist are free to spew their hate. What also amazes me is the people defending the Nationalist are the ones who call groups like Black Lives Matter the animals and the ones who should keep their mouths shut. And did I mention that President Trump said that violence from “many sides” should be condemned? Sorry, Mr. President, but only one side committed violence. You’re just too blind to see it.

I’m sorry, but words like “die faggot die” are not something that should be “free to say. Any sort of hate speech should be frowned upon. Hate speech should not equal free speech.

Here’s to hoping that hate is destroyed, and we can all walk on to the path of unity.
