United Nations Urges US to Give Up Free Speech to Combat Racism

(LifeZette) The U.N. issued an “early warning” Wednesday for the United States, urging that the government take immediate action to confront white supremacy following the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

But the warning and call for the U.S. government to act contained a little-noticed last paragraph, urging the U.S. to make sure that the “rights to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly” are not exercised to deny rights or freedom to others and pressing the U.S. government to “ensure that such rights are not misused to promote racist hate speech and racist crimes.”

But as many legal scholars have noted, there is no hate-speech exception to the First Amendment; that is, the government cannot limit a person’s speech because it is considered hateful towards any person or group.

The United Nations hasn’t been valid for years.  Maybe it’s never been valid.  Many of the international wars have been started or escalated by the U.N., which seems to have few teeth when it comes to individual liberties.

And then there’s THIS:

  1. Free speech as we’ve known it will probably disappear at some point … but not on my watch.
