#Journalists spend every waking hour of their lives defending our freedoms from would-be tyrants like Drumpf, and don’t you forget it:
“CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour asked former FBI director James Comey on Tuesday if he should’ve restricted people from saying “lock her up” because the phrase amounts to “hate speech.”
Comey asserted during the interview that President Donald Trump targets private citizens with investigations and the power of the executive, citing Trump “calling for the locking up of his political opponents, including people like me.”
Um, no, Comey, actually that was you and your great Obama Administration pals James Clapper and John Brennan targeting private citizens (specifically Donald Trump) with investigations. It was you abusing the power of the executive.
Never forget: whatever crimes or sins the Uniparty accuses our side of, it is the Uniparty that is invariably guilty of those very crimes and sins.
“Amanpour seized on Comey’s use of the phrase “locking up,” and wondered if the FBI should censor the use of “lock her up” in reference to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“Of course, ‘lock her up’ was a feature of the 2016 Trump campaign,” Amanpour said. “Do you in retrospect wish that people like yourself, the FBI, I mean, the people in charge of law and order, had shut down that language — that it was dangerous potentially, that it could’ve created violence, that it’s kind of hate speech. Should that have been allowed?”
“Should that have been allowed?”
Should that have been allowed?
Who the fuck is Christine Amanapour to ask “should that have been allowed”?
Let me explain something to you, lady: no matter how highly you Propagandists think of yourselves, it is not up to you to determine what free Americans are “allowed” to say.
It’s not up to anyone.
The very fact that she’s even asking that is proof positive that our ruling class is flat-out opposed to free speech.
That’s not a question that anyone in a free society even asks. The very idea of “not allowing” certain things to be said should never have even popped into her head.
That it did cross her mind, and that she asked the question, is a revealing glimpse into how these people’s minds work: they consider themselves the arbiters of what we proles can and cannot say.
When Journofascists like Christine Amanawhatever hear Trump supporters chanting “Lock Her Up!” they think, “Should we allow them to say this?”
Even though there ultimately was no FBI crackdown on anti-Hillary chants, in Christine’s mind, America is already a country of rulers and subjects. No prizes for guessing which category she sees herself in.
Comey, for his part, answered the question wisely, although I don’t believe for a second he actually meant what he said:
“Comey explained the First Amendment to Amanpour, replying, “That’s not the role for government to play. The beauty of this country is people can say what they want, even if it’s misleading and it’s demagoguery.”
You know your country is in a bad place when the former head of the
Uniparty Secret Police FBI has to explain the concept of Free Speech to a bloodthirsty “Journalist” who wants to gag anyone who’s not With Her.
“It’s amazing how pro-censorship “journalists” are, but simultaneously whiny about Trump’s threats to “open up the liable laws” or merely call them “fake news.”
Pick one (1) position and stick to it, would-be tyrants.”
CNN and all the other Uniparty Propaganda Outlets are not even remotely necessary for a healthy, thriving and free country.
In fact, they are now the main obstacles to a healthy, thriving and free America.
