Kamala Harris made a comment that Trump is irresponsible with his words (big friggin’ surprise…) and should thus be suspended.
Last I checked, you can’t pick and choose which speech you protect based on how much it benefits you.
Uh-oh, someone call the whaaa-mbulance – the dems and their bandwagon gang are unhappy about free speech.
I personally think the riskier the better, so long as one isn’t inciting violence (DUH) and also isn’t trying to take away MY right to be eccentric when I damn well please.
“Frankly, when you look at what he’s been tweeting today directed at the whistleblower, directed at so many people, you know, I, frankly, think that based on this and all we’ve seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress, that he, frankly, should be — his Twitter account should be suspended.”
Uhhh… yeah, I don’t really want this kind of rabble-rousing individual to have ANY sort of authoritative tie to our valuable First Amendment, irrespective of a privately owned platform having their own Terms and Conditions.
Tell ya what, I’ll start going to Kamala Harris for advice about civil discourse when I’ve hit a low enough to ask Hillary Clinton for marriage advice.
Harris told Anderson Cooper. “I think there is plenty of new evidence to suggest that he is irresponsible with his words in a way that could result in harm to other people. And so the privilege of using those words in that way should probably be taken from him.”
So lemme get this straight… be responsible with your words, but not with your legs?
Tsk tsk, Kamala… you of all people should know that actions get you further than words.
Unless you actually name your weapon “Words” and subsequently hurt someone with said weapon, then actual words do not cause harm unless by directly inciting violence or yelling fire in a crowded theater.
“If he’s not going to exercise self-restraint, then, perhaps, there should be other mechanisms in place to make sure that his words do not, in fact, harm anyone,” she said. “And that’s my point. What we want to make sure is that his words do not actually result in harm to anyone.”
HAHA self-restraint… it’s like the innuendos and irony are being served on a silver platter.
I guess now that she doesn’t have anyone else to physically lure and convince, she no longer has a leg up *looks around to see if anyone caught the joke*
I guess it’s no surprise that she’s conceptually flexible too. Smell what I’m steppin’ in?
…I could go all day with these…(high-fives self)
ANYWHO – Someone’s potential to commit harm is NEVER enough to actually punish them… because then we’re dealing with a ghost…
…and that ghost? WELL. That little girl ghost… was me.
LOL I had to, it was too easy.
