NOT THIS AGAIN: Black Lives Matter Founder Says Hate Speech Is Not Free Speech

Following this weekend’s show of political violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a white nationalist thug drove a car into a crowd of protesters rallying against an alt-right demonstration, murdering one woman and injuring 19 others, the Left is back to pushing their tired slogan that “hate speech is not free speech.”

Speaking with MSNBC on Monday, Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors told host Host Katy Tur that the U.S constitution does not protect free speech of white supremacists, even though the Supreme Court already said it did.

Tur asked the Dignity and Power Now founder her thoughts on Trump’s initial statement regarding the terror attack this weekend.

“I think what is important at this moment is white nationalists are actually fighting to take away people’s rights,” she responded. “Black Lives Matter and groups like Black Lives Matter are fighting for equality.”

“Hate speech, which is what we’re seeing coming out of white nationalists groups, is not protected under the First Amendment rights,” she continued.

This statement reeks with hypocrisy and speaks to the Left’s failure to condemn the hate speech and violence perpetuated on their own side in both Charlottesville and elsewhere.

The people in the BLM movement have routinely called for the death of cops and for the death of white people.

Marxist professors across the country have also made no qualms about their desire to see President Trump or the GOP lined up and shot guerilla-style.
