"No free speech for you, h8rs!"

Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler has called on the federal government to revoke an already-issued permit for what he believes is an “alt-right” protest scheduled to take place in the city on Sunday

The protest will take place on federal property which is why the feds are involved in the permit process.

Mayor Butthurt is all concerned and shit:

“My concern is they’re coming here to peddle a message of hatred and bigotry,” Wheeler said Monday during a news conference. “They have a First Amendment right to speak, but hate speech is not protected.”

So this idiot is a student in the Howard Dean Law School Where You Get To Make Shit Up.

The organizer has told the mayor to go pee up a rope, that he plans to go ahead with the protest as scheduled.

Surprisingly, the ACLU is on the side of the "alt-right" protesters:

“The government cannot revoke or deny a permit based on the viewpoint of the demonstrators. Period,” the organization wrote on Monday.

Meanwhile, check out this shouty video of shouty students at Evergreen State having a temper tantrum.

Somebody videoed the temper tantrum, and it went viral, and so now the shouty students are all butthurt:

“We demand that the video created for Day of Absence and Day of Presence that was stolen by white supremacists and edited to expose and ridicule the students and staff be taken down by the administration by this Friday.”

Uh, kids? You don't need white supremacist film editors to help you look bad. Just sayin'.

Thanks to JJ Sefton's morning news dump for the shouty link.

75 The worthies who peddle the "Hate speech is not protected" trope, know they're spouting a falsehood. They don't care. It's about repeating a lie enough times that it becomes received truth. When you consider that a) either a study of the U.S. Constitution is omitted from school curricula these days, or b) those teaching it have been fully indoctrinated in progressive Leftism by the modern education industrial complex, you understand the inevitable end-game. Rights are what those power determine them to be, not transcendent values accorded to humans merely by virtue of being human. There must be pushback while it's still allowed and it must done forcefully every single time.

Posted by: Cheri at May 30, 2017 12:27 PM (oiNtH) The best response to the I just want to know how you could have voted for Trump question is a calm, no, you don't want to know, you want to lecture me about politics at this, a social gathering, and last I checked you were not my mother thus you do not get to lecture me in public. My response, of course, is a firm "I'm not discussing politics at this lovely gathering" and, if pressed, my next response is "Oh I'm sorry that you were not raised well enough to be able to comprehend when someone is politely telling you to leave them the hell alone." That usually dumps enough napalm on the fire to divert the fight into how horrible I am and away from the topic of politics. Also it ensures that you'll be left alone.

191 Checked out the local news on the underlying event: the slash throat murders of two people who told the "hater"to lay off the chicks in the Muslim garb. Press reports continue to be misleading except for the occasional disclosure.

The initial reports were truncated. They made a big deal of the "muslim hate" talk from the killer, but only later related he was talking shit about like Christians or "f-ing Jews". The press loves saying his last name which is "Christian." And they have cropped the prior booking photo probably because of his record.

The question left unasked is why was this fairly young convicted armed robber with serious mental health problems riding around in the cute Max trains in PDX. Well, you know the answer. But it's about "hate". Really it is.

The ACLU position may be less pro free speech than "we have defended Nazis before" implying, of course, that any Trump supporter is a Nazi.

I thought this PDX mayor would be different given the more muscular response to the anarchists. Apparently I was wrong.

Alt-right includes two distinct groups with no substantial overlap, and the left intentionally conflates them.

1) Anti-GOPe conservatives - Breitbart, Milo, Good Spencer, etc. They don't think the GOPe represents conservative any more and would like to

2) White nationalists - bad Spencer, David Duke, etc they don't like the GOPe or the real alt-right because their primary concern is the color of the people's skin. To the extent that they oppose socialism it is because the socialists are the open borders party.

If these big city Dems don't want confrontational "hate" speech protesting in their cities they should have reigned in protest behavior over the years of Lefty/Commie protests - #BLM, anti-World Bank, OWS, Open Borders, etc..

Unintended consequences are delightful. These same "Unicycle people" want denser development within an urban area, but they can't admit that such denser development still requires a denser road infrastructure. Even if people ride unicycles around their own neighborhood, they will still drive to and from other neighborhoods, or other cities. And so the suburbs become exurbs and actually "sprawl" even further out.

This county thinks it needs the money that the tax revenue would bring, in large part because the state is the state, but that money also brings political influence and - do you want to cede the county government to the pot growers?

Irony of History: CA itself was mostly rightist, up to the early 1990s. But Cold War victory meant that the computer hardware, defense and aerospace industries, which were actually much more important than graphic arts and motion pictures in NorCal and SoCal respectvely, folded up and closed down. It wasn't so much that the Commiecrats moved in--they were always here, from Commiewood in the South, to the Soviet Consulate infiltrated unions and academia in the North--but that the Patriots moved out. :-( And then the Wall Street Journal globalist greedhead types actually deluded themselves into thinking they could win a Hispandering Contest.

328 316 The political spectrum is not a straight line. It's a circle. Posted by: Widespread Pepe at May 30, 2017 01:02 PM (2qHjF) I used to believe this model as well, but now I disagree with it. You have a continuum of more freedom to less freedom. The "circle" model gets deliberately misused to term fascism and national socialism as "right wing" models when they are most certainly not.

341 Just a reminder of the virus that is California ex-pats. Oregon used to be relatively conservative and still is in parts. Once they were flooded by folks from California, it tilted hard left. You can probably tick off a number of other states infected the same way.

344 Have these college campuses and Universities started a grade donation service? In the name of fairness, this service will take the top grades from students who apply themselves and dole them out to lazy dumb shits who can't even speak proper English. We don't want them to feel bad do we? Better yet, make it mandatory "donations".

347 Guy was all over the place, neo-Nazi, Bernie and Jill supporter. - They showed a video on CNN taken a few days before the stabbing in which the Bernie supporter is shouting aggressively about "Christians and Muslims". CNN described this as a racist rant which it wasn't, it was an anti-religious rant. The idea was to show right wing extremism and if a facts need to be bonsai-ed, so be it.

The primary tumor was in the Northeast and upper Midwest. California was just a metastasis. Just like WA, NM, VT, and now CO. I'm worried about AZ and TX. The rot has started with Tucson and Austin.

349 I know, dead thread but one last bit of info. Both OR and WA are mostly white folks. OR at one time in its history had laws restricting blacks from moving to the state. So these folks are protesting in favor of minorities that they don't live around.

354 "They have a First Amendment right to speak, but hate speech is not protected."

If the first amendment only protected speech that everyone was comfortable with hearing, there would be no point in it existing at all. It's rather like saying that every ship shall have enough life boats to hold all the passengers, but they aren't allowed to use them when it sinks.
