The ACLU Retreats From Free Expression

One thing I take issue with its the ACLU's failure to denounce protecting the speech of far-left radicals, despite them literally falling under the same definitions.

The horseshoe is real, after all. Unfortunately we don't know what the ACLU thinks of the methods of Window Breakers Anonymous be

maybe the nazi fucks in charlottesville shouldn't have murdered someone. i can't blame the ACLU for not wanting to support or defend murderers

"They" are not murderers. James Fields is a murderer. While Charlottesville may have been a playground for competing visions of tribalism, merely accente

The ACLU Retreats From Free Expression

This one's for pacman.

The organization declares that speech it doesn’t like can ‘inflict serious harms’ and ‘impede progress.’


The American Civil Liberties Union has explicitly endorsed the view that free speech can harm “marginalized” groups by unde

Tellingly, the policy has come to an abrupt end:

this sounds like wishful thinking in the face of ICE losing children, the father who killed himself recently, joe "concentration camps" arpaio being pardoned, etc.

ICE didn't lose any children.

what is your line, famov?

Like I said, I think there's a better way of going about this. Separ

We ought to tear down the wall, abolish ICE, and fix the broken immigration system.

It's as I've argued before: The far left have no respect for the rule of law and advocate for open borders. That's what's implicit when they argue for the abolition of ICE. Otherwise they'd actually bother to ex

Lets talk about how horribly unfit America is.

I realize that calling a stand up comedian a hypocrite is to totally miss the point, but between all the alcohol, coke, and assorted narcotics it's a wonder that Carlin even made it to 71... all the while maintaining the robust image of a somehow-still-spry 88 year old.

Can we all agree..?

"Deals and treaties"? No need to conflate the two. A treaty requires the consent of Congress, or two thirds of the Senate if we want to be specific. As far as I know the Constitution does not give a legal definition for what constitutes a "deal", and so for our purposes it is more usefully regarded

Iran warns North Korea not to trust Trump:

A cute media stunt, but since this is international politics and not high school it is unlikely that the Iran Deal has or will factor at all into the considerations of the North Koreans.

I am on the verge of banning you purely out of general quality concerns.

I feel broken

Personally, I like focusing on the fact that I'll be going back into the earth, reconsumed by the world and given new life.

And here I am insisting on cremation to ensure that no one (or no thing) gets anything out of me once I'm gone. I figure if I'm really lucky some byproduct of my combustio

Trump commutes sentence of Alice Marie Johnson

There is, of course, a dark side to this: That our president can be persuaded to exercise one of his most eminently abusable constitutional powers by celebrities with the equivalent intellectual heft of potato batteries.

They say that Trump is receptive to flattery, and I guess it's true. I imag

Heroic Young Palestinian Medic Murdered By IDF Terrorist

Also I’ve got news for this “intentions matter” crowd:

This is less news than it is weak rhetorical points that are barely worth responding to. Israel's intention, and this is bore out by the results, is to be a state with actual functioning institutions and the rule of law. That t

Heroic Young Palestinian Medic Murdered By IDF Terrorist

I first noticed it with Sam Harris, and now it’s a staple of the right

The "right" must be a big umbrella indeed if we can fit Sam Harris underneath it.

Could Famov say the same of Israeli civilian casualties?

Sorry Noam, but a higher death toll doesn't confer moral righteousness. They

More disappointed than offended, but that disappointment evaporates when I realize it's Secular Talk. You can't be disappointed by expected behavior, but it is still disingenuous - and shameful - all the same.

Heroic Young Palestinian Medic Murdered By IDF Terrorist

The title of this thread is indicative of the bad faith with which you approach the subject. It's shameful, frankly.

As always the simplest explanation is most likely: that this nurse was accidentally hit in crossfire. But we don't know whether or not this is true. We don't know anything, which i

Richard Spencer: I’m not for free speech

Remember this the next time they cry, “Muh free apeech”.

There's only one reason that "free speech" is a rallying cry on the right, and it's because the radical left is censorious and to the apparent apathy of the institutionalized center left. There is no better example of this relationsh

The Scientistic Delusion

Without concrete examples, I'm going to assume you're talking about climate change because that is the most obvious example.

You want concrete examples? The article gave concrete examples in the form of actual headlines from real (fake) news organizations. It addresses the politics of science, a

The Scientistic Delusion

But let's get real. You posted this because you think Climate Change is bullshit.

No. I posted this because the veneer of science, however far from the truth it may actually be, is used to give legitimacy to certain policy objectives that otherwise struggle to find a justification. Washington St

The Scientistic Delusion

Normally I just post excerpts of an article and provide commentary, but I thought this one was important enough to paste the whole thing.

It is strange to me that many people, including those who are so self consciously opposed to deference to any kind of traditional authority, are paradoxically
