Should We Allow Democrats To Monitor Social Media For “Hate Speech”?

Should We Allow Democrats To Monitor Social Media For “Hate Speech”?

Here’s the Scoop

Governor Kathy Hochul’s recent proclamation that New York State, under Democratic leadership, is partnering with social media giants to surveil and combat “hate speech” ignites a critical debate on the boundaries of free speech and state overreach.

This move, portrayed as a step towards public safety, involves monitoring social media interactions, a tactic that raises eyebrows among advocates of free speech and personal privacy.

The initiative, set against a backdrop of rising antisemitic incidents in New York City, is part of a broader strategy to bolster security. However, it also ushers in a new era where the lines between protecting citizens and policing thoughts become increasingly blurred.

In this charged atmosphere, where the definition of “hate speech” often seems subject to political interpretation, the role of the state in monitoring and regulating speech on social media platforms is a contentious issue. Critics argue that such measures, especially under a single party’s direction, risk encroaching on the fundamental rights of free expression and privacy.

We ask you, the reader: Should we allow Democrats, or any political party for that matter, to take the helm in monitoring social media for “hate speech”? Does this represent a necessary step to ensure public safety, or is it a perilous slide towards state censorship and control over personal expression?

Your voice is critical in this debate over the balance of safety, privacy, and freedom. Vote now and make your stance known.

    Nope. It’s we the people who should be monitoring the Demonrat’s hate speech everywhere along with the phony RINOs. We have no need or use for the traitors on both sides.

      Our news and multi-media are already monitored and controlled why make it legal to do so. What happened to our 1st amendment the freedom of speech? Take Facebook for instance: if you share on public chat they can and will take your priviledges away even if you are adding to the story opened by author. This wasn’t so biased before the Demo/Socialists stole the elections.

    Why does anyone get to monitor it? Who gets to determine what it is? Yelling fire in a crowded theatre is one thing that could bring potential harm to many people, however hurt feelings never killed anyone. Open threats of violence being perpetrated is a case of he said , she said, unless others can corroborate the threat. Although some speech is ugly and offensive,…we still have the freedoms to walk away and ignor it.

    On principle, no; on a purely practical basis, a double no : the liberal definition of “hate speech” is anything which conflicts with their own anti-White,anti-American, anti- conservative,anti-Christian agenda which pervades everything.

    How about letting the fox guard the hen house? Dillinger guard the bank? Hunter be the leader of the ATF or DEA?

    “Hate speech” is an idiotic idea: we have a right to “free speech” – even speech others don’t like – as long as it’s not slanderous, inciting to violence, disclosing of gov’t secrets, does not “out” an undercover agent of the gov’t and put their life in danger, or foment insurrection.
