Whoa there (Off-Topic)

We are absolutely having a national conversation about antisemitism. Are you kidding? Sure, a lot of it is projection pushed by the party of racist dipshits, but it is absolutely a conversation that is occurring.

I respect your position. It’s very noble. Maybe you’re a better person than I am. In my experience, turning the other cheek is far less effective than standing up for yourself, even if that means doing so with violence. Turning the other cheek often just means letting the other party get away with it. “It” being hateful evil rhetoric that serves as a rallying cry to bring other people to their cause, which directly results in things like what happened in Charlottesville. The world would be a better place if people like Alex Jones were afraid they were going to get a black eye every time they opened their mouths.

There is no easy solution. Regulating speech is absolutely a fine line. That line is not permanent, nor should it be.
