Great jokes!

I can see why Gutfield hired you. I hope it's a nice long gig.

For sure, these freaks have a right to say whatever vile thing they want and they shouldn't be beaten, killed, or imprisoned for it, however "free association" is also a thing... no one has to go out of their way to help those same people. I'm old enough to remember when the "punch-a-nazi" crowd got a cashier from a hot dog stand fired for attending Charlottesville by showing the hot dog stand owner who his employee was. That hot dog stand owner can decide to keep or let go their employees however they want, but these same rabble have no leg to stand on when that table gets turned on them. Live by the freedom to associate, die by it too.

1) Loved the jokes!

2) I am a free speech absolutist. I am also a freedom of association absolutist. If my employer wants to fire me because I am pro-life, pro-gun, pro-marriage, or any other opinion, he should have the right.

3) Now, I know how the "I'm going to Ukraine to fight Russians" crowd feels. Let's dance, Islamists!

Orwell pointed out that the left scared him more than the right because the left is better at dressing its fascism up in pretty language.

It's so hard to listen to the applause of the terrorists. Free speech means just that, but it also means that others have the right to it as well. In addition, with free speech comes choice - and one of those choices is to disassociate - that means that employers, or future employers can disassociate. It is rather ironic that many of the people who have been cheering the actions of the terrorists and spewing their hatred and desire for death to the Jewish people are the same people who want you to be fired, cancelled and imprisoned for not using proper pronouns or speaking the truth. .such as women are women and men cannot have babies or menstruate. This crescendo has been coming for a while and I just pray that we end up on the right side of it, with as few casualties as possible. As people look towards politicians to guide us, I hope that they realize that the only ones who can save us is ourselves - beginning with voting out the knuckleheads who got us here. . . .

The jokes are good, the week has indeed been terrible. I try to stay even-keeled, but I occasionally find myself filled with rage off and on this week.

I never really understood anti-Semitism (my spell-checker refuses to believe that's a word, for some reason) until I entered the military. I grew up in a very rural area, and while we learned a lot about WWII and the Holocaust, and had many WWII veterans living among us, we had no Jews at all. One of my father's best friends had been one of the soldiers who freed a Jewish death camp. He refused to talk about it for years, saying it gave him nightmares.

Still, when I entered the Air Force they showed us the films of the camps being liberated. Several of us puked at seeing the horror. Despite that, I still heard some casual anti-Semitism and realized some of it was truly Jew hatred. It was disgusting.

And now that shit is being thrown into my face every damn day by Progressive Jew-hating Leftists. I am so fed up with their lying, twisted rhetoric by which they align themselves with baby-killing A-holes.

So. I'm for Free Speech *because* it allows the A-holes to self-identify, and for me to mock them, and call them out, and avoid them, and support anyone who decides not to hire them.

I'd like to identify every one of them and then send them directly to a country they like better in the Arab Jew-hating world and never allow them to return to the US.

Just to be on the safe side, don't hire *anyone* from Harvard. Or Yale. Or Stanford. Or NYU. the list is long...

It's not a "but." It's an "and." As in...

When General Gordon was appointed Governor General of an Indian province, he gathered local tribal leaders together and told them, "You say it is your custom to throw widows alive on the funerary pyres of their husbands. Very well: it is our custom to hang men who burn women alive. You may build your funerary pryres; we will build our gallows alongside them. You may follow your custom, AND we shall follow ours." (Strangely enough, the practice of wife-burning, known as suttee, stopped in that province.)

Free speech must win and some will be victims of the fight I suppose.

I have to fight back tears when I think of the suffering and I have to fight my rage when I see the apathy of intellectuals seeking to understand a “complicated” situation.

God bless the Free Press for their fearless work.

It makes me happy to see an email from whoever the heck Jim Treacher is.

It's horrible. And you're doing a great job. Hang in there.

I got up, worked out, cleaned the garage, had a shower, when and visited my elderly in-laws, went to costco for grub for the game this afternoon, and only then at that point did I get on the internet. That was a damn mistake.

I read how there was a very massive protest in London. Pro-Palestinian, and tacitly pro-Hamas. Not overtly, I guess they're a designated terror group, so any overt support will catch you a meeting with the local constabulary. But it was a massive show of support and a clear sign that London has lost the multi-cultural wars. I don't have much to say other than this: I was in London this summer when there was an equally massive LGBTQIA+ rally. This is incongruous, absolutely incompatible in anyway you divide it. I am absolutely certain there was crossover in the attendee's.

So, that's what is making me shake my head.

"A keffiyeh on an American college campus is just a hipster swastika." Best line ever.

Funny how the people who reflexively call everyone else "Nazis" are so willing to ignore Hamas' and organizations like Hamas publically stated and published goals to kill Jews. Not Israelis, not "occupiers" - Jews.

I guess that despite millenia of slavery, expulsions, genocide, and prejudice, we're just too unfashionably "white" and "European" to be considered oppressed or indigenous.
