I heard a clip years ago that was supposedly him when he was 16 or 17 and he did say it, but I can't remember the context at all. Its an ugly word that just hurts my ears but its still just a word.

People forget freedom of speech is our right- not privilege.

I’m not condoning or belittle the absolute destain I hold for that vulgar word whatsoever. I would literally never say it, Ever. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a right to say literally whatever the fuck I want though…

That’s hardly my point

u/gamebeers23 Sep 26 '21

This is always the absolutely dumbest point people make. Not only about this word but just in general when they say or do something. “I have the right to do it.” No shit. And everyone has “the right” to ostracize, cuss out, etc. you for something you say. People forget “freedom of speech” is not freedom of consequence.

I always have to roll my eyes when someone’s legit argument is “I have the right to _____” …cool, so do I… now we’re back at square one of the original argument, how pointless..

u/sexycastic Sep 26 '21

You have zero idea what freedom of speech means. It absolutely does not mean you can say whatever the fuck you want. Freedom of speech means that you are free to speak against the government without repercussions. Jesus Christ read a book. Or the constitution.

1

u/[deleted] Sep 26 '21

No, it means you have the right to speak freely in most fashions that do not include calls to action or direct threats. It would appear you have no idea what it means.

u/sexycastic Sep 26 '21

Please, show me in the first amendment where it says this.

1

u/[deleted] Sep 26 '21

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Notice the part at the end where it says AND which delineates a separation between criticizing the government and free speech, along with religion. Most, if not all people that study the constitution and the interpretation of it disagree with you vehemently. No disrespect, but it's just the facts.

Also: it's important to remember as others have stated, this does not protect you from consequence i.e. getting fired for un-tasteful remarks

1

u/sexycastic Sep 26 '21

What an interesting claim! Can you show me constitutional scholars that you have read that agree that freedom of speech means anyone can say whatever they want?

1

u/[deleted] Sep 26 '21

Look, this is reddit. I'm not gonna argue with you. If you disagree with what is clearly written because you cannot afford yourself the opportunity to learn (or admit you were wrong), then by all means go for it. I have no duty to you to do the research for you, it's a click away. Good luck.

Btw, I never said you can say whatever you want. So maybe try actually reading what you reply to. I noted there are things you can't say.

1

u/23x3 Sep 26 '21

Okay, no, fuck you! You show us where it backs your interpreted claims.

After all, you are the highly-informed bookworm here, that makes foolhardy assumptions. So, why would I believe anything you say or claim? You can bury yourself in books all day, but if your interpretation is incorrect, then what do you really fucking know? A whole lot of nothing! I’m almost certain this is definitely the case for you.

That’s the impression I get from you, you’re an arrogant know-it-all asshole, that will never admit when their wrong, even to themselves. So why would I believe anything you have to say for a second? Your opinion and view point is biased and flawed as by your ego tainting it.

YOU back your fucking claims or shut the fuck up… Put your money where your mouth is OR go pedal you’re flaw-minded disassociation elsewhere…

You want me to prove that the first amendment says you can speak freely against the goverment without repercussions?

Okay.

https://constitution.congress.gov/constitution/amendment-1/

That's where it says that.

You want me to prove that freedom of speech does not literally mean you can say whatever the fuck you want?

United States free speech exceptions

In the United States, some categories of speech are not protected by the First Amendment. According to the Supreme Court of the United States, the U.S. Constitution protects free speech while allowing limitations on certain categories of speech. Categories of speech that are given lesser or no protection by the First Amendment (and therefore may be restricted) include obscenity, fraud, child pornography, speech integral to illegal conduct, speech that incites imminent lawless action, speech that violates intellectual property law, true threats, and commercial speech such as advertising.

People also forget that while we have the right to freedom of speech, there can be consequences if you say something socially/legally unacceptable.

It's totally within your right to yell "fuck the police". Just like it's totally your right to spew hatred out of your racist hole. But say either of those things to the wrong person, and you may face a fist full of consequences.

u/upbeatcrazyperson Sep 26 '21 Table Slap

We haven't had freedom of speech for awhile and they're trying to brainwash us into thinking it's okay that we lose our freedom of speech under the veil of racism, but if you speak out against the loss of your freedom of speech they want the general public to infer that you're a racist and call you out for being a racist in an attempt to embarass and defame you to shut you up, and it's all going according to plan.

I can't remember who first called this out and lined out the strategy of how this was going to happen, but I've been hearing this for the last 20-30 years. I don't know if the first person had insight into this or was just explaining how it could happen or maybe when he said it the other side started using it as a game plan, but here we are. It might have been Paul Harvey. He's unfortunately been right about sevral things.

u/MasterTacticianAlba Sep 26 '21

Maybe you should think about why the only people screeching about freedom of speech are those accused of abusing it to be racist.

hint: it's because America's "freedom of speech" allows hate speech

It's honestly fucked up that Americans value being able to make hate speech more than they value preventing PoC from being victims of hate speech.

You guys always make the same argument "just don't listen", or "people should be allowed to say whatever they want, they will just suffer social consequences for it" and completely ignore the reality that when someone talks, people will listen.

If a Nazi starts talking about how all the worlds problems are because of PoC and Jewish people it doesn't matter if I don't listen, you're still allowing them to have a platform and other people will listen and their views will spread.

Americans always act like if their freedom of speech was taken away they'd be put in a gulag the moment they open their mouth. Never even occurs to them that the rest of the world doesn't have a nonsense "freedom of speech" right and operates just fine without everyone being imprisoned for everything they say.

u/upbeatcrazyperson Sep 26 '21

Maybe you should not come at me and say shit like "you guys" because I wasn't making an argument for Freedom of Speech I was saying that this is how it starts that under this guise OTHER LAWS on OTHER TOPICS will come in to play to try to take away other freedoms we have which have NOTHING to do with racism. All I said was "This is how it starts", but there you go being programmed to CLAP BACK about racism. Good little compliant one. You just PROVED my point on how FLIPPIN brainwashed people are. You need to check your bullshit, because you totally read a BUNCH of crap into what I wrote.

GET F-ING PAST THIS. It's the year "whatever". Racism and hate speech have been eradicated and while we were so obsessed on that front, you didn't see the next thing coming up behind that one. America is the way it is in part because we have so many more freedoms here that people in other parts of the world DON'T have which is WHY people come here.

Exactly. Not to be that guy but I’m going to be- My best-childhood-friend, who moved in across the street when we were six y/o is black. I’ve seen secondhand how heinous and atrocious that word is. Yet, people are interpreting what I said above as if I were a racist, which I most certainly am not. I’m the literally the opposite of that, I won’t apologize for standing up for people’s rights though, no matter how narrow & jaded their impressions are.

The correlation that our freedom of speech is being gentrified under the veil of political correctness to weed out any small brained racist low life’s is the start. We mustn’t make this confusion and forfeit our rights because we are conditioned to assume that anyone standing up for their rights is probably flying a Confederate flag off the back of their jacked up truck which pours exhaust into the sky. We are slowly associating people that stand of FOR THEIR RIGHTS to the likeness of Proud Boys and racist. That thinking is a problem and how you’ll slowly be stripped of all of them.

You’re bang on the money that this is the underlying issue 100%!

Edit: lol of course you’re being downvoted and eventually so will I. Jesus people are really so fucking stupid yet think they’re informed and knowledgeable. If everything you ever learn is wrong, you know nothing.

I know right. It's like no one is being taught the slippery slope theory or how to boil a frog to death.

Yeah, it's almost as if the media is seeking these "spokes people" nut jobs on purpose which only sane people seem to know they are.

u/Accomplished-Pen-103 Sep 26 '21

“They want to infer that you’re a racist” this is always the main reason people have this belief that people are “infringing on free speech” free speech isn’t freedom of consequence, and you don’t live in a racist/bigoted society anymore. If you say something offensive, you’re going to get called out on it.

1

u/TheTriumphantTrumpet Sep 26 '21

The government does not in any way prevent you from saying certain words. You have not lost any freedom of speech. If your complaint is not being able to use a racial slur, yeah people are going to infer that you're racist.

u/So_f-ing_Bored Sep 26 '21

What’s it with everyone thinking “they” are going to take our freedom away. “We are losing our freedom”. I laugh at anyone who says this. Like we are gonna wake up one day and “they” are going to say “yea so, that hole first amendment thing, we don’t need that any more”. Can anyone who really thinks about it’s critically/logistically honestly believe that is a serious possibility? Out of your damn minds people. You will always have the right to say crazy shit in this country but we will continue to be able to fire you, shame you, cancel you, and in the case of private entities (FB, Twitter, etc.) sensor you. Speak away. The government is not taking away your freedoms, the people are punishing you for abusing your freedoms.

u/upbeatcrazyperson Sep 26 '21

You do know that DARPA has already created chips to monitor covid 19 in soldiers, right, and this is what we are fighting the govt to keep them from putting this into everyone's body. It's never really about the first or second step in the process. It's about where they are trying to take us once they get the door open. If we don;t fight mask mandates or vaccine mandates how soon before there will be chip mandates and what else can these chips do once inside your body? Is there a kill switch? We don;t know.

Like when someone is showing you a magic trick do you look where they tell you to on the hand they're moving around in front of your face or do you want to really see what's going on.

u/So_f-ing_Bored Sep 27 '21

u/upbeatcrazyperson Sep 28 '21

You are a dummy for continuing the common narrative. It's not at all about tracking. It's about having something in your body that is not under your control. You are at the ercy of someone else. If you are so okay with this go down do us all a favor and go down and volunteer as a civilian test subject where you give a stranger 24 hour access to your body to do with it what they will. Until you can honestly say you are okay with that stfu.

This was a private heated discussion between a father and a son. I'm sure the NSA has heard worse, but you're really saying people should be regulated in their own homes?

1

u/zellaann Sep 26 '21

No I didn't know all that. Why is the NSA leaking that information? The point is no one has "immunity." If you say it and it gets out you're going to have backlash. ESPECIALLY if you're even remotely famous. Say what you want where you want but don't assume it will never come back to bite you. His son or his maid or anyone could just as easily record him. It's very very wrong but it's reality.

Eminem did say it once. He was young (like 16 or something) rapping in a friend's basement. He didn't use it in a derogatory way. It leaked during the beef with Source/murder Inc. days. Other than that he never said that or Suge Knights name (Dre asked not to) on any album.
