Regarding that racist SAE vid…

An exercise into the what Freedom of Speech is truly all about..
*THIS IS AN OPINION PIECE!!*
*****************************
Some of you may have been aware of a recent video shot of some idiots singing a dumbass song on what appears to be a Greyhound-type bus.

*****************************
Now, regardless of one’s feelings and opinions about the event, let’s make one thing about it absolutely clear:
THOSE SAE STUDENTS HAD THE RIGHT TO SING THAT SONG, WITHOUT FEAR OF BEING SILENCED VIA LAW FOR DOING SO.
Just like these nimrods have the RIGHT to say this shit on video:


Just like these bozos have the RIGHT to say this crap in out loud:

FREEDOM OF SPEECH goes all ways, people. You may not like what someone else says about you, but ultimately your feelings don’t matter here — it is still their RIGHT to say it.
Voltaire on Freedom of Speech.
All that being said, if you still think I’m a racist, and that I’m condoning the SAE vid (when I’m clearly not), then go on ahead — I can’t change your mind. I will say that I DO believe in EVERYONE’S right to Freedom of Speech; even for those I disagree with or detest, and for those who say stupid and/or bad shit to me.
Chomsky on Freedom of Speech.
THAT is what Freedom of Speech TRULY entails.
Unfortunately, it appears that most people don’t truly want true Freedom of Speech; for everyone else except themselves…

  1. Yepper. I spent 23 years in the US Navy–it wasn’t just so I could have a job. Freedom of Speech is and always will be a right, not just a privilege, through which we often find out who is truly brilliant or idiotic.

    • Thanks for stopping by!

      • Keep in mind, the SAE (fraternity), in my opinion are racist idiots and have let us see their ugliness. We as citizens now know who they are and can choose to not associate ourselves with them. Shutting down their fraternity is okay with me to let them know that we do not find their behavior acceptable. They still should have their freedom of speech rights because with these rights comes responsibility and consequences.

      • Indeed.

  2. Totally agree with you. If we don’t take that bad with the good then freedom of speech means nothing.

  3. Noam was also a pioneer linguist (whom I studied as a linguistics major in college). =)
