“13 House Democrats offer bill demanding government study on Internet hate speech”

Who gets to define what is hate speech? Jeffries? Yeah. I bet he’d know. It’s whatever speech he doesn’t like.

From The Hill:

Thirteen House Democrats have proposed legislation that would require the government to study hate speech on the Internet, mobile phones and television and radio.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) and 12 other House Democrats, would look at how those media are used to “advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate.”

The Hate Crime Reporting Act, H.R. 3878, is meant to update a 20-year-old study from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). That study, delivered to Congress in 1993, looked at hate speech on radio, TV and computer bulletin boards.

Jeffries says the NTIA needs to see how hate speech is transmitted over the various new modes of communication that have sprung up over the last two decades.”

    I wonder if these laws will also affect the very prevalent and dreadful “racial micro-aggression” as detailed here:

    As I heard from many…is it time to get off the grid completely? I’ve probably already sunk my ship. I’m a stong believer everything you search, write, read…etc..through the internet will come back someday and be used to profile you. In a liberal run world of idiocracy (govt run by fools) it will be dangerous to be a free thinker and truth seeker.

    It’s most likely a movement to shut down talk radio, blogs, and anything that is not lamestream media, IE government disinformation. The fascists do not like hearing from anybody but their mirror and their slaves.
    Some forget there is an election in November. MAKE IT HURT.
