Freedom Of Speech

I find it remarkable that the Republicans insist on freedom of speech for Trump on public fora, while actively restricting freedom of vote (speech) for millions of ordinary citizens.

This openly declared racist hypocrisy is stunning in its scope and lack of principled behavior. The Republicans even restrict Liz Cheney from exercising her freedom of speech as representative of her Republican constituency, by punishing her with removing her from her prominent position in the party.

“Dear Liz , you say what we tell you to say or we will take your voice away altogether”. Signed; Your dear colleagues.

The new Republican slogan; "Welcome to the party. Here you will have freedom to only lick Trump’s boots " .

Here’s a knock on effect. First goes the truth, then goes the civility. Or was it the other way around?

What next?

When admitting to making mistakes, and learning, and honesty, even civility, has been made an enemy.

Thanks Newt.

Angry Americans: How political rage helps campaigns but hurts democracy September 10, 2020 7.48am EDT

As the 2020 presidential election ends, one thing is clear: America is an angry nation. From protests over persistent racial injustice to white nationalist-linked counterprotests, anger is on display across the country.

The national ire relates to inequality, the government’s coronavirus response, economic concerns, race and policing. It’s also due, in large part, to deliberate and strategic choices made by American politicians to stoke voter anger for their own electoral advantage.

Donald Trump’s attempts to enrage his base are so plentiful that progressive magazine The Nation called him a “merchant of anger.” Meanwhile, his opponent, Joe Biden, elicits anger toward the president, calling Trump a “toxic presence” who has “cloaked America in darkness.”

Anger-filled political rhetoric is nothing new. From Andrew Johnson and Richard Nixon to Newt Gingrich, politicians have long known that angry voters are loyal voters. People will support their party’s candidates locally and nationally so long as they remain sufficiently outraged at the opposing party. …
