‘It will change absolutely everything’: Glenn reacts to new hate speech bill in the House and Senate

There is a piece of legislation making its way through both the House of Representatives and Senate that could have real implications for freedom of speech in the media and on the internet. On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 (S.2219), which seeks “to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio to better address such crimes.” Meanwhile, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced a companion bill in the House – H.R. 3878.

“This really bothers me a great deal. Senator Ed Markey and Representative Hakeem Jeffries… are taking their Hate Crimes Reporting Act and they’re trying to jam it through and get passage in both the House and the Senate. It’s happening simultaneously… Is that part of Cass Sunstein’s old stomping grounds? The information administration looking to analyze all media outlets including radio to determine if they are working to advocate and encourage hate crimes. This is good, huh?”

In a Wednesday press release, Sen. Markey a member of the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, explained why this legislation is particuraly important given the recent shooting in Kansas.

“We have recently seen in Kansas the deadly destruction and loss of life that hate speech can fuel in the United States,” Sen. Markey said, “which is why it is critical to ensure the Internet, television and radio are not encouraging hate crimes or hate speech that is not outside the protection of the First Amendment.”

Glenn happened to have a German radio from the Nazi era on his desk this morning, and he explained the great lengths taken by the Nazi government to ensure the German people only heard what they wanted them to hear.

“This [radio has] the German swastika on it, the German eagle is on it. This was an S.S. approved radio. It would only pick up the right radio stations, so you couldn’t tune into to the BBC or anything else. They just took those frequencies away,” Glenn explained. “I love the people who say the Nazis are extreme right. No, they’re not. The battle of World War II in Europe was communist versus Nazis – communists versus the national socialists… Both of them wanted world domination… Both of them were socialist… It’s the same group of guys.”

As Stu explained, the end result of Sen. Markey and Rep. Jeffries legislation is yet another tool that can be used by those in power against their opponents.

“It winds up being a political tool,” Stu said.

“This new bill [will] not only will regulate the hate speech as deemed by the government on talk radio but also all the Internet,” Glenn concluded. “It will change absolutely everything.”

    Well, the Supreme Court ruled a long time ago you can’t yell “Fire” in a crowded theater if there is no fire. So guys like Glenn Beck who make massive amounts of money by yelling “Fire” in a crowded theater where there is no fire get around the provision by explaining that the guy in the third row has a cigarette lighter in his coat pocket and he might accidentally light it when he reaches for his popcorn. So he’s covered – no harm, no foul!

    Glenn I hope you read this. You recently said you did not want people calling for revolution as fans. There are always crazy people in any group. In the military they have always had the 10% that were screw up etc. The majority of people supporting the constitution and specifically the 2nd amendment do not want to over throw government but they do want people who abuse their authority and treat the citizens as subjects out of office through peaceful means if at all possible. Here is an example of those very people abusing their authority now going after something that is near and dear to your heart, freedom of speech. This assault on the 1st amendment has been going on for years especially among evangelical christians targeting pastors who think that sodomy is a sin and abhorrent behavior. The federal government has tried to label the preaching of the truth as hate speech. As I write this I am reminded that our struggle is not with flesh and blood. Everything a progressive liberal democrat stands for is antithetical to freedom, the constitution and scripture. While our nation has departed from teaching our children about the values taught in the bible it has delved into the abyss of the progressive liberal democrat. Unfortunately this will lead to our ruin as a nation. Anyone or any party that can stand for and advocate the killing of an unborn baby is capable of any depravity thinkable including tyranny and demagoguery. Instead of lumping labels on groups who are typically in agreement we should be engaged in presenting a clear set of values that work and have worked.

    Hate crime law is an effort at thought control masquerading as legitimate criminal justice legislation. The very concept of hate crime law itself is an offense against freedom.

  • Anonymous

    There are lots of problems with hate speech laws, but the biggest may be related to the so-called “American Rule”. In just about everywhere else in the world, if a plaintiff loses a lawsuit he pays the legal fees of the defendent. Here in America, he doesn’t. Thus, laws like this are easily exploited by those who would like to shut down free speech. They can merely bring a hate-speech lawsuit against their political rivals with no real cost themselves. After a while, it’s too expensive for people to speak their minds openly, which curtails freedom of speech.

  • M.O.T.L.

    In the modern context, the word “hate” is very squishy and nebulous indeed. The left slings the word “hate” at anyone who disagrees with their philosophy, just as they tack on “phobic” to anyone who disapproves of some action. Thought-control at its finest.

    “Hate Crime”(unjust) laws are unconstitutional and need to be eliminated. People have the right to put out obnoxious speech—-NOT obscenity, though, and NOT slander, and LIES (everyone in the White House needs to be in prison for promoting LIes and treasonous, unconstitutional “laws”).

    First thing all totalitarian cultures do is destroy “Freedom of Speech” and censor all information. Totally unconstitutional. Truth is the only thing that sets us Free. Most MSM lies and puts out misinformation (White Noise). Ray Bradbury warned of this.

    Which simply means we are ruled by a small elitist group of people. You know what i believe them.

We may be nailed by another nation while we are busy fighting each other and what’s left of our military has chosen sides long ago. This is not looking good.

    The United States Senate and Congress need to leave our 1st amendment to the Constitution alone and pass a bill instead that any elected official who attempts to change or alter said Constitution shall IMMEDIATELY disqualify him or herself from holding the office he or she was elected to SERVE. We did not elect these clowns to be a lord over us, tell us what we can wear, eat, buy (and how much), where we can go and how to get there, and how long we can stay, and what we can say. These people took an oath swearing they would protect our rights. How is this protecting our freedom of speech?

    liberal progressives will stop at nothing to CONTROL thoughts and actions of the subjects…people joked about “hate crimes” laws and the need for them because screaming a racial comment before killing another makes that murder more hateful. This past week Glenn railed against those who had carried their arms to Nevada in support of the Bundy’s, and now we see the congress and the liberal progressive Socialist Communist Utopian Marxist–SCUM want to control speech. They do this in violation of the First Amendment…they wish to restrict the 2nd, have already trampled the 4th, make a joke of the 14th…SCOTUS creates laws out of thin air…the ballot box has failed to clear out the SCUM, the jurist box is no better…that leaves the cartridge box as the box of last resort.

    Sweden has just passed a law similar to this to take effect Christmas 2014. This new law is meant to stop Swedish people from complaining about their country being turned into a third world nation. Just as this law will help the Islamist turn the USA into a third world country. They are extremely good at using our existing laws against us.
    Without
    freedom of speech there can be no democracy. If you are not allowed to
    say certain things then parties that support your ideas cannot exist and Sweden is at high risk of turning into a communist USSR-like country as is America.

    This is simply another means by government to gain power and control over information by arbitrarily circumventing the US Constitution so they they can grant themselves moderation power over the internet.

    The biggest threat to tyranny isn’t Fox News or any other news media, it is the voice of the individual. The political correctness police and the new hate speech police are an attempt to stifle the freely expressed opinions and information of the individual.

    Free speech is for people to talk about controversial topics; it isn’t there for people to only agree with the blatherings of others.

    Please remember that the progressives of today have gone way beyond what the original progressives were all about. Though conservatives were not endorsing these early progressives, they did not face the hostile intent of todays progressives. Even Woodrow Wilson was more about administration than total dominance which is the mantra of todays progressives. Todays progressives have totally hi-jacked the movement to gain permanent superiority over all of this nations citizens. We conservatives of today are battling the same set of circumstances which the progressives of yesterday were fighting against. My how the story has changed.

    I don’t think the left really likes Radical Islam, or should. Don’t get me wrong, I still believe in trying to differentiate the peaceful ones form the non peaceful ones. And I do sometimes think maybe we or our allies go to far at times. We’re humans, after all. And we reap what we sow. That’s us taking moral responsibility.
    That being said, I don’t think liberals should be so defensive of radical Islam. Muslims and Arabs? Maybe, but Radical Islam would behead their population of homosexuals and feminists. “Oh no, not our precious gays!”
    It’s one thing to criticize the US for it’s mistakes and problems and help try to fix it. It’s another thing to just take the side of people who have no love for you at all to destroy everything about America instead of just trying to make it better.
    Perhaps a lot of the things the left says it likes it doesn’t really care for. Minorities. Homosexuals. Perhaps those people are just getting used, like kids in an argument between mommy and daddy. If that’s the case, we’ve all been used like parents using their kids as pawns in a game guilt-chess.

    How convenient for the democrats and the other deviants of society. How about if I’m the one who determines what is hate speech and what is not? I understand why democrats want their enemies to be shut up. Those on the right are right. Democrats can’t have the truth put out there because it makes them look stupid. That is why the hate truth speech. Democrats hate speech unless it is approved by them.

    Would this hate speech bill include all of the hate mongering speeches by Al Sharpton, the President of the United States, the Muslim communities, the Black Panthers, etc., or would it just curtail what the white man says?
    We were given the right to free speech in the Constitution, not the right to be politically or morally correct. As our government continually chips away at our rights, we become “Sheeple” (People who follow like sheep) on the way to lose more than just our rights. This wimpish style of control is why we are no longer respected around the world. It started with the Obama apology tour and continues on with his weak foreign policies. I guess his policies on the Ukraine are more to he tune of his statement, tell Putin that I can be more flexible after the election.

    Ok. When and how do we get REPRESENTATIVES in Washington? Obviously, they cannot represent us if the spend year after year in Washington, then spend an hour or so having occassional, annual town hall meetings. Our representatives weren’t supposed to all be lawyers with little or no work experience and little or no contact with the “working Joes” they are supposed to represent. They were supposed to be one of us. Someone who worked in the community and gave up his own interests for a few years to REPRESENT our interests in Washington. Nothing in the constitution talks about life long Lords and Masters appointed to tell us what to do and when to do it. Why in the world have been become a country that allows elected and un-elected government employees to sit around, make up rules and regulations that govern our lives. Rules/laws/regulations that are the product of an idealog who is being paid to sit around and dream up things to justify his existance as an employee. We are in deep sh… if we don’t take our country back. Put people back to work in manufacturing . . . not in needless rule making and favor giving to those who elect them.

    The devil always mixes some truth in with his lies to trick you into accepting his lies, or in this case his attempt to overturn the 1st. Amendment.

    1). “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” – is an attack on the 1st. Amendment, which Obama is trying to get you to believe the 1st. Amendment should be struck down.

    2). “those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed” – this is true but it has nothing to do with the 1st. Amendment. In almost every nation It is illegal to destroy the property of others, whether the property is art (images of Jesus) or buildings, which churches are.

    3). “or the Holocaust that is denied.” – This is also an attack on the 1st. Amendment. While I believe the ‘holocaust” actually happened, denying it happened is certainly rude, and let’s admit it – it’s down right crazy – but, only people’s feelings are hurt by this denial. Just like only people’s feelings are hurt by the so called “slander” of the false prophet of islam. Nobody should be able to deny a person freedom of speech because their feelings are hurt.

    Like I said the devil mixes in a little truth to get you to accept his attempt to destroy free speech. Obama takes the fact that sane people are offended by denial of the holocaust to get you to sign on to his attempt to overturn the 1st. amendment.

    Unfortunately the garbage spewed by the imbeciles like Reid and Grayson is considered “protected speech” just as long as it is actually stated on the floor of the House or Senate. And by convention, the same immunity seems to apply when they spread their hate in press conferences and campaign appearances.

    The really scary thing about this awful piece of legislation is the idea that for it to work there has to be a “consensus” about what is considered “hate speech.” And just who gets to make that call — whatever administration happens to be in power?

    Usually terrorist groups strike hard, strike fast and then try to get away from the larger force they are opposing.

  • David Crouch

    McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence. It also means “the practice of making unfair allegations or using unfair investigative techniques, especially in order to restrict dissent or political criticism.”[1] The term has its origins in the period in the United States known as the Second Red Scare, lasting roughly from 1950 to 1956 and characterized by heightened political repression against communists, as well as a fear campaign spreading paranoia of their influence on American institutions and espionage by Soviet agents. Originally coined to criticize the anti-communist pursuits of Republican U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin, “McCarthyism” soon took on a broader meaning, describing the excesses of similar efforts. The term is also now used more generally to describe reckless, unsubstantiated accusations, as well as demagogic attacks on the character or patriotism of political adversaries.

    This was the goal of the “political correctness” movement all along. “Can’t say this”, “Don’t say that”, all aims to control thoughts. It has insidiously enveloped all of our society for 30 years or more. Even the Blaze censors what it deems “offensive” words.

    True, but yesterday Harry spoke not from the Senate floor – it is in recess, therefore what he said was not protected when he stated Bundy hadn’t paid his taxes nor the fees. How des he know Bundy hasn’t paid his taxes – has he been targeting conservatives through the IRS? Reminds me of when he said Romney hadn’t paid his taxes, when indeed he had and much more than his share of taxes, but facts never get in Reid’s, Pelosi’s, OWEbama’s Carney, Sharpton’s, CUmmings’ and the Dems way.

    I agree. When honesty was in fashion and personal responsibility was the norm, the system was better. Which is worse – getting slapped for being a jerk, or being put in jail for saying the wrong thing? People have abused the criminal justice system and the civil court system since the 20th century began by using them as a weapon against those who offend. Now in the age of the internet we see all kinds of irresponsible behavior from people who use the anonymity of the web to say things to people that would never escape their lips in a face to face situation. The fact there is no consequence for their actions of aggression in a verbal form seems to encourage some to become rude and obnoxious. This is where internet trolls come from.

    I am concerned that this has gotten to the point that restoring order, politeness and the courage to defend the same have been lost.

    Manners, and their value seem to have vanished with the emergence of political correctness, and the latter is a poor substitute for the former.

    I think the Republicans are legitimately scared of the Tea Party movement. They must absorb the Tea Party portion of the electorate through principled policy. This does not conform to that. I think it will be harder than you think to drag Republicans along with this.

  • m134 gunner

    Obama’s ability to influence is being drastically reduced by his past failures and by the fact that he only has 2 years left. There is no reason for Republicans to compromise with him and he has lost the public’s trust….so it will be hard to do a PR campaign to convince people.

    Here’s the question: have you ever actually met a Muslim? There is radical Islam that has hijacked a religion for political purposes. That’s bad stuff. The thing about Islam is that there is no central leader, so different local leaders can interpret and twist things. Muslims that actually follow their religion properly are good people, and I know this because I have met many of them. Their religion isn’t too far off from Christianity in their beliefs to be honest

    You are a person who is so emotional and intolerant that you have trouble producing a coherent statement–and you call someone else a “nutjob”? I will call you on your stupidity and flawed logic, but I would NEVER advocate stifling your ability to express your opinion. So, give up the hate, stand on your own two feet and defend your twisted views with reason and intelligence (quite a challenge, I know lol). Your socialist, totalitarian ideology will never win in America. You kooks will simply succeed in destroying this once great country, as some of us will NEVER give in to your perverted view of freedom for the few. Quit being a pawn with a faux view of your own intellect and a delusional support of government enslavement. Too many good people are up to your lies and will not give up on liberty.

    No, I would suggest that mentally unbalanced people playing video games do mentally unbalanced things.

    If you are a democrat sponsoring this bill it’s to stifle anybody who isn’t a democrat…if you are a republican sponsoring this bill, it’s to stifle anybody who isn’t a republican…if you are an independent backing this bill you are a republican or democrat, in other words a pretender….if you want free speech to disappear, which means political correctness will reign, then you deserve everything you get and you should donate to these anti-free speech elected officials campaigns.

    As a Christian, I have been told by Jesus “to hate”. Yes, He said, that unless you hate “mother, and brother, [etc.], you can have no part in Me”, or words to that effect.
    On this surface, this is outrageous, however it is necessary to understand specifically what Jesus meant. The word “hate” in that context, means “to love less”.i.e., we are to love God above all things…and this is where the left gets it wrong. Hatred is not the opposite of love. To “love” someone, means to care for them. Ergo, the opposite of “love” is to say, “you couldn’t care less”, or anti-love is apathy and indifference.
    In Revelation, God says of man, “I wish that you were hot or cold [passionate], but if you are lukewarm [indifferent], I will [projectile] vomit you from My face.” It is scary the way western society is rushing toward the conviction that the only unforgivable sin is “hatred”, especially when it’s directed against the Biblically-described “sins of the flesh”.

    Yeah…. no. Perhaps conservative pundits use the most visible hate speech these days, and in fact perhaps they’ve helped inspire violent criminal acts, especially Beck. But as the GOP learned after a democrat became president, it’s not always a good idea to enact draconian laws a la the Patriot Act, or decide it’s OK to throw the Geneva conventions out the window “no matter what those liberals say” because later a democrat might have all those powers. Oops.

  • Bill Tilghman

    I agree with you to a degree. Certain people have a tendency to turn violent whereas most do not. The problem is in identifying those that do. This is why we have incidents where individuals use what ever means is available to harm others. A week or so ago a kid used a knife to lash out at others in his school, no gun involvement what so ever. There are some people in this world who cannot handle the responsibility of owning weapons, but branding everyone who has any weapon as a public danger is taking things too far, and that seems to be what the media and some on the left have a talent for doing in response to tragedy.

    What I was finding a bit of a reach was your statement that frustration in life exacerbates violence. If a person becomes violent in response to frustration, that could indicate a problem.

    1. HATE is not a crime. HATRED may not be pleasant or appreciated, but
    it is NOT a crime. One can HATE any number of things, and not be
    committing a crime. Many people HATE the relentless head-bashing they
    are enduring over topics they are passionately against, such as
    homosexuality or “gay” marriage or AMNESTY or even a fanatical religion
    like Islam. As FREE AMERICANS, they have a Constitutional RIGHT to
    express their HATRED of such (to their thinking) abominations.

    2. HATE SPEECH is a Liberal-invention. See #1 above. Americans have the
    right to express DISSENT, DISAGREEMENT, REVULSION, even if it may be
    interpreted as “HATE SPEECH.” Even Hillary Clinton avowed as much in
    2003: “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you
    disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We
    should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate
    and disagree with any administration.”

    3. Legislation designed to stifle Americans’ right to speak their minds
    is draconian and evil and must NOT be allowed. PERIOD. END OF STORY.

    4. The REAL “hate speech” is all the LIES & DISSEMBLING Americans are suffering under the current run-amok administration.

    P.S. These are personal opinions, NOT HATE SPEECH, and are guaranteed
    under the U.S. Constitution–so BACK OFF Lib-mafia! America will NOT be
    silenced when confronted with abominations.
    Anybody who agrees that such legislation, designed to silence or punish dissent is wrong and must never be allowed, is invited to copy this posting and send it to their legislators, to show them that AMERICANS have a RIGHT to express their opinions and will NOT submit to any legislation that seeks to prevent this. Even if our opinions and expressions are considered “wrong” or “hateful,” we have the RIGHT to express ourselves–and we will continue to do so.

    It is not just the radio they’re aiming at, but also the internet and even cell phones!

    Such a bill sounds changeable under the First Amendment. I noticed in the press release this part of a sentence: “ensure the Internet, television and radio are not encouraging hate crimes or hate speech that is not outside the protection of the First Amendment”. I guess these politicians really mean they don’t want to encourage hate speech that is outside the First Amendment, which raises the question of how hate speech could be outside the First Amendment. Anyway, I wonder how much Glenn paid for his N a z i radio.

    If the GOP plans to “absorb” the Tea Party they MUST STOP their leftward LURCH. I’m using the REAL definition of STOP. Not like a STOP sign where you stop for ONLY A MOMENT AND THEN START GOING LEFT AGAIN. No “LIBERAL” OR “MODERATE” “republican” will get us to vote for them because they offer us the same UNPALATABLE things the democrats do. Not happening. I’m all DONE having my vote STOLEN by the BS GOP. Their track record of leaving conservatives out in the wilderness negates the possibility of my voting for them.
    It’s a shell game and there’s NO PEA under ANY of the coconuts.

  • Daniel Shields

    This bill is a whopping 3 pages. All it does is direct the NTIA to update a report from ~1992. And the bill specifically states “consistent with the 1st amendment”. I’m a die hard republican, and I am as unhappy with this admin as the next. But Glenn is spouting pure BS. I don’t understand how he came to this conclusion.

    Listen. This is political science 101 when looking at a 2-party system. 3rd parties never exist for long in systems that places incentive on 2-parties (known as SMDP or SMSP). Electorates are usually predictable and there is a pattern. As the Republicans have moved left, they alienate a larger and larger portion of the right. Inevitably, a 3rd party emerges once a critical mass of alienated voters gets hit. The Republicans will naturally react by catering to this portion of the electorate, since without them the Democrats will stay in power.
    In a few historical circumstances, 3rd parties have emerged to dominate. However, political science and communication were lacking back then. Parties weren’t able to measure the policy preference of the electorate as well and choices about party allegiance were made in a slightly different fashion. Representatives operated on more of a trustee model, which means they had to make choices without consulting their districts. Nowadays, representatives are very responsive to their district.
    I’m not saying I don’t appreciate the Tea Party and Libertarian movements. They will have a positive effect by causing the Republicans to correct course and get back on the right.
