It isn’t just the “far right” that can’t peacefully assemble in America without being attacked by brutal masked terrorists that are protected by the police. It is all white people.
You can’t even have a Christmas parade in this country anymore.
Two towns in the South have canceled historical annual parades because of threats of attacks from Antifa.
Leaders in Wake Forest had said last week that the town’s parade would go on and include the Sons & Daughters of the Confederacy despite a planned demonstration. That decision changed once police learned that the number of expected protesters had grown from 10 to 200 people, Police Chief Jeff Leonard said in a statement released Wednesday.
The entire parade has now been canceled for safety reasons. This would have been the 72nd year of the parade, news outlets reported.
“We aren’t happy telling kids they can’t attend or participate in this year’s parade — but it’s better than trying to explain to a parent whose child was injured despite so many warning signs,” the chief said.
Wake Forest Mayor Vivian Jones released a video message saying she’s “angry, disappointed and heartbroken” that the event has been canceled. She says it’s not the most popular decision, but it’s the safest decision.
The town of Garner also canceled its Christmas parade this year over fears that a float sponsored by the Sons of Confederate Veterans would be “targeted for disruption.”
What we are experiencing in this country is a de facto ban on the First Amendment.
What the government is saying is this:
Sure, you have a right to assemble. But if men in masks show up and attack you, we won’t do anything to stop them. We also have a policy of not investigating anything they do, or prosecuting them, ever. Furthermore, if you defend yourself when they attack, you are liable to face prosecution for “rioting.” So go ahead and have your assembly, but you might all end up in jail because of it. We warned you.
On the other front, that of written speech, the same manner of thing is happening, with all internet companies organizing to make it so individuals with politically incorrect speech do not have the ability to publish.
They are saying:
Sure, you have a right to say what you want on the internet. But private companies have a right to ban you from all platforms, and we won’t do anything to stop them. If you get banned from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, you can start your own website. Of course, if Cloudflare decides to pull your DDOS protection, you won’t be able to keep it online. They have a right to do that because they’re a private monopoly. If you find a way around that, you won’t be able to register a domain, because all domain registrars are private companies. So in reality, you can’t say anything that these companies tell you you’re not allowed to say. But you could have in theory, if these companies had decided to allow you to say it.
It’s absolutely insane that we’ve allowed this to happen.
It is like a real life parody of the propaganda about Stalinist repression.
Stalin would be shocked and appalled by the level of abuse going on in America.
People should have stood with the Charlottesville protesters. And they should have stood with the Daily Stormer.
Now, less than three years later, no one has any free speech.
I’ve said it for years and I’ll say it again: ultimately, all Christian gatherings will be shut down using these same terrorist tactics, and all Christian speech on the internet will be banned using the same “it’s a private company” tactics. They will claim that the Christians are “homophobes,” and that this justifies any abuses against them.
They’re going to regret letting this happen.
