I/we can hold them responsible by not voting for them, by not frequenting their place of business, by demonstrating in front to their offices, by being an eternal gadfly. There are many ways to hold people responsible for their stupidity without doing them physical harm. If we don’t hold people responsible for their stupid harmful actions then why do we have jails?
Surely you jest. Elon/Twitter/ DNC is way more important than FPOTUS calling for the termination of our Constitution. Goodwyn is showing us what’s really important to him, and attacking our Constitution doesn’t seem to be a blip on his radar.
I didn’t know that. So that’s how Trump met Melania LOL.
Are you surprised?
That his been his problem his entire life. He could have been a better husband, a better father, a better human being if it wasn’t for his massive childish ego fueled by his raging narcissism.
They went willing without hesitation or reservation with their only thought being how it could help them.
I think that’s one of the things the the trial of Stewart Rhodes was about, there is a line you can cross with your speech and be held responsible for the actions and damage it causes. The old yelling fire in a crowded movie theater scenario.
Everyone is impressionable, that’s part of human nature. Each person has the capability and intelligence to come to an informed decision if they so choose to. We can not stop people from believing stupid things like micro chips in vaccines and other such nonsense if they reject knowledge and education. Trump called for the termination of our Constitution, a stupid statement made all the more dangerous because of those who believe and hang on to his every word. The only way to counter that stupidity is to hold those responsible who do not denounce his harmful, hateful stupid speech by demanding our political leaders refuse to seat them in Congress, don’t give them committee assignments and for their constituents back in their home states to flood the reps offices with letters and phone calls. It can be argued convincingly that our political leaders do not have the cojones to do this, and it also can be argued convincingly that the American people don’t give a $hit. Maybe we should change the preamble of our Constitution to “We the People don’t give a $hit as long as we can get what we want when we want it no matter what”. Free speech is a double edged sword, I come down on the edge that allows it to happen and allows me to cut them with their own edge.
If they want to break my bones they are going to do it whether someone eggs them on or if it’s something I said or did.
Of course not, nor a Muslim woman removing her hijab or a Christian hiding their cross. Free speech will always be a real knife edge. As Paul Simon said "one man’s ceiling is another man’s floor.
