Normal people nowadays
The great double act between anonymous trolls spewing "bad words" on the internet and a gaslighting mass media hyperventilating about "hate speech" and "radicalisation" is finally starting to take effect. A new poll shows that a majority of Americans now believe in absurd concepts like "hate speech" and even think that the First Amendment should be "rewritten" to crack down on free speech, FFS!

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon

More than 60 percent of Americans agree on restricting speech in some way, while a slim majority, 51 percent, want to see the First Amendment rewritten to "reflect the cultural norms of today." The Campaign for Free Speech, which conducted the survey, said the results "indicate free speech is under more threat than previously believed."

"The findings are frankly extraordinary," executive director Bob Lystad told the Washington Free Beacon. "Our free speech rights and our free press rights have evolved well over 200 years, and people now seem to be rethinking them."

Of the 1,004 respondents, young people were the most likely to support curbing free expression and punishing those who engage in "hate speech." Nearly 60 percent of Millennials—respondents between the ages of 21 and 38—agreed that the Constitution "goes too far in allowing hate speech in modern America" and should be rewritten, compared to 48 percent of Gen Xers and 47 percent of Baby Boomers. A majority of Millennials also supported laws that would make "hate speech" a crime—of those supporters, 54 percent said violators should face jail time.

American hostility to the First Amendment did not stop at speech. Many would also like to see a crackdown on the free press. Nearly 60 percent of respondents agreed that the "government should be able to take action against newspapers and TV stations that publish content that is biased, inflammatory, or false." Of those respondents, 46 percent supported possible jail time.

What are your thoughts on RamZ's new video about free speech?

It seems he's of the mind that "free speech" is simply a matter of who control's the speech (i.e. who has power).
