Hate Speech, A Tool

2020 July 27
by drdog09

(compliments to JimNorCal for the suggestion.)

What is hate speech?

Hate speech has very little to do with the “N” word or Holocaust denial. Those are the “public presentation” of hate speech. “Hate speech” is a misnomer. It gives you the impression that those who want to criminalize or outlaw hate speech want to get rid of hatred and/or get rid of ALL hate speech. That’s just not true.

Hate Speech is a specific set of speech: things said by “oppressors” which the “oppressed” (or “marginalized”) find objectionable. Here’s a short list: speech that is deemed racist, anti-transgender, homophobic, xenophobic, anti-Muslim. However, there’s more. Factual claims can be considered hate speech, for example: speaking about affirmative action. That can be hate speech because it harms the marginalized’s self-respect. Speaking about immigration, legal or illegal, harms the self-respect of our immigrant communities. Defending traditional views of the family and marriage also harms the dignity of those with non-traditional sexuality.

Even superficially neutral topics like “welfare reform” can be “dog whistles” and thus be considered hate speech. Hate speech theory demands that the marginalized speak out in ways that undermine the oppressor. The oppressor group must shut up. And listen.


A very objective standard by the Classical Liberal framing.

However that is not what is being pushed by BLM, 1619 Project, and others of the Gramsci school of Communist thought.

And one last thing: you also can’t question factual claims about the narratives or mythologies that the marginalized create for themselves. One cannot speak against those even if what you say is factually correct. For example, the New York Times’ 1619 Project is riddled with all errors. But in a hate speech regime, scholars who disagree on the facts, could not actually dispute these things aloud in public because this is a narrative, a sacred narrative of an oppressed, marginalized people.

Now, you may say “Things are great here in America! We have the Matal vs Tom Supreme Court decision. We’re safe. And, it was unanimous.” You’d be wrong to think that. Not only has hate speech spread to Europe, to Canada, to the UN, to Big Tech, to our universities, but there are some precedents already in the law that will be used to chip away at free speech rights. There are two to watch carefully … one is the use of the word “dignity” in sexual liberation cases culminating in Obergefell. There you will see this use of “dignity” that says you have the right to create your own identity. And the law can demand that others respect it. The second obvious place is in anti-discrimination laws. The EEOC already has regulations that certain kinds of speech in workplaces are violations of anti-discrimination laws. Those two legal paths will surely be the method used to take away free speech.


That is some of it. But I want to suggest it goes even deeper. The hate speech drum is being beaten as a tool, not an end in itself. If the Deep Left is successful in this regard then their next step is to seed institutions or create such institutions that determine what is hate speech and who is issuing it. Canada for example is pretty far along that road with the Provincial Councils that Mark Steyn ran afoul of. That and the proposed C16 proposal that would have Federalized in Canadian law the idea of forced speech and the suppression of other forms of speech. Once one can define what can be expressed in the public square then control of nearly everything else is possible. That which cannot be expressed can be utterly destroyed with impunity. (Tip: It is well to note that controlling the public square is what Twitter and Facebook are all about.)

An additional tool that the Left is adept at is the reclassification of speech and thought. The classic definition of racism is the belief in the inferiority of one class based on a physical characteristic; skin color, place of origin, accent, etc. But to the Deep Left the construct is entirely different. Racism is defined as the institutional disparity between classes such that all differences are the result of uneven power dynamics. Its why the 1619 Project states that the Revolutionary War was about support for slavery. Or that science is a tool of oppressors as it forces a hierarchy of process that oppresses those unaccustomed to the process. It is also the primary reason you can’t have reasoned discussion with them. The act of exchange of ideas is racist!

So where do we go from here? Like most of my tests, to the extreme. A proposal should be pushed to its outer limits and beyond. Do they breakdown as the limits induce instability? If so, reconsider the proposal. For the Left that limit is Intersectionality. At what point does the Venn diagram of race, sex, personal pronouns and andinfinitum other tests become so extreme that the only occupant of the space is an individual? At which point their Leftist preference for conformist ideals tend to fall apart. And I might add, isn’t that were we started – that the individual is a minority of one and their rights be protected in law?

Should the Right take them there? We might have to. I dread the process as it will be long an painful. It will be like a cultural version of ‘Waiting for Godot’.

For your consideration along a similar vein –

    In 2020 being labeled a racissst, is far worse than being called a murderer or rapist. If you are charged with murder o raope, you are innocent until proven guilty. If you are charged with being a racissst, you’re guilty unless you can prove your innocence and your life is likely destroyed.

    Fear of being labeled a racissst controls the narrative. Facts and rational thought cannot be applied. That’s why the 77% illegitimacy rate, crime rates and astronomical drop out rates can never be discussed.

    Regarding the 1619 Project, you cannot use facts (like 95% of the people in the colonies never owned slaves or Britain didn’t ban slavery in its colonies until the Slavery Abolition Act 1833 – more than 50 years after the American Revolution). You also cannot Question the motives of Nikole Hannah Jones – its primary author, even though she wrote a letter to the editor, which many would view as racissst, while a student at Notre Dame.

    “Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, CVS, and Walgreens, along with other nationwide retailers, say they’ll serve customers even if they violate mask mandates, according to CNN. The retailers simply want to avoid confrontations between angry customers and employees.”


    What morons in mgmt didn’t consider this eventuality from the jump? Hmm maybe we shouldn’t antagonize our customers more than we already do by funding terrorist organizations. Whatever though fk them all in particular for dozen other reasons.

    “…Virginia, for example, has a statewide order for residents to wear them, but people with medical issues do not have to comply — and retailers are not allowed to ask people why they aren’t wearing a mask or demand to see proof that they actually have a medical issue.”

    Bingo. “I have medical condition” if feel like adding details say APB and let them ponder that when you refuse to give more detail – actually tell them to get a reaction. … All Political Bullshit.

    Though watch that change in some places since they already have started ignoring the shit out of hipaa to begin with.

    Here is one for IP


    Many years ago on a long Trans-Continental flight, an elderly lady (Gina) asked if she could visit the cockpit. When she got up there, she found four crew members. She asked the first what he did, and he explained that he was the Navigator and his responsibilities were to keep the aircraft on its track across the earth.
    She turned to the next one and asked what he did. He explained that he was the Flight Engineer and his job was to monitor and troubleshoot any aircraft or engine system problems to keep the aircraft operating smoothly.
    She turned to the next one and asked what he did. He explained that as the Captain he was responsible for everything in the aircraft and to fly and direct everyone in it.
    She turned to the First Officer and asked, “Well young man, what is your job?” He replied “Ma’am, I am the captain’s sexual advisor.”
    Somewhat shocked, she said, “I beg your pardon young man, but what do you mean by that?”
    “Very simple ma’am. The captain has told me on a number of occasions that when he wants my f**king advice, he’ll ask me.”

    “The simple way to halt the spread of the disease is to limit the number of contacts people have. Quarantining people is hard. “If you went out and told everyone in your community to stay home, there’s a large percentage that wouldn’t do that,” she said.

    (In her simulation) Glass found that a simpler step— closing the schools— had an impressive effect.

    That makes sense because the Marlins are the team with the COVID-19 outbreak. The Phillies, whose game with the Yankees was canceled earlier, were the Marlins’ opponents last weekend.

    Regarding the 2021 collective bargaining agreement, it’s time the players realize you can only push the envelope so far. When a washed-up former star like Manny Cabrera makes more in a single “at bat” than half the country makes working all year, it’s time to interject some common sense. But, we both know that won’t happen. Welcome to the world of $7.50 hot dogs and $12 beers and much lower attendance. In the quantities they buy beer, I figure MLB teams are paying 50 cents tops for a 16 ounce beer. At the current $10 price, that’s a 2,000% mark-up. At $12, it becomes a 2,400% mark-up and if it hits $15, it’s a 3,000% mark-up.

    Baseball has 9 defensive players on the field, 1 batter, 0-3 base runners, 2 coaches and 4 umpires spread out on the field. With the exception of the home plate umpire, catcher and batter, they are all meeting social distancing standards.

    Football, by comparison, has 22 players and 7 officials. The offence (and sometimes the defense) goes into a huddle. When they break out of the huddle, 11 offensive players, 7+ defensive players and several officials are within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage. Once the play is underway, there’s blocking and tackling.

    With the exception of some of the older ballparks (Wrigley, Fenway, Oakland, LA Dodgers) the dugouts are very open and spacious. At Comerica, there is a large open air area where players can watch the game. It’s a far cry from old Tiger Stadium, which was what you described and the worst place in the park to watch the game. But there’s nothing forcing players to use the dugout, especially in an empty stadium. They can occupy a section between the dugout and home plate. They can even observe social distancing. It’s not like hockey, where players go on/come off the ice every 60-90 seconds. Have the 10 players – current pitcher, 8 position players and DH closest to a gate. When the manager wants a relief pitcher to start warming up, he simply uses his cell phone to call the bullpen coach on his cell phone.
