Football player has brilliant idea to better their community: Criminalize hate speech

Not a US Civics expert: Myles Garrett

Meet Myles Garrett, a NFL football player for the Cleveland Browns. He attended Texas A&M where he was a two-time All American. I don’t know what he majored in at college as his Wikipedia page only speaks to his football stats and not his college education or degrees he received. I can guarantee you he didn’t major in US Civics.

The Browns recently had a meeting “to discuss ways they can better their community.”

Garretts’ brilliant idea? From Fox News:

“I’ve brought forth the idea of a petition for criminalizing hate speech,” Garrett said during a Zoom meeting. “I don’t believe it should be said, in forms … whether it’s on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, or openly in the streets and marched and paraded. It shouldn’t be like that.”

Garrett was asked why he believes it will affect long-term change, and his response was that “It’s different this time. … It can’t be ignored.”

Read the whole Fox News story here.

I suggest Garrett use the power to access information at his fingertips and perhaps Google “US Constitution and hate speech,” “Bill of Rights and hate speech,” or the easiest, “First Amendment.”

He just might learn a thing or two.

So-What happens if you “criminalize” hate speech? The thoughts and beliefs will STILL exist,and if people keep that bottled up inside,eventually it’ll come out as violence. Would THAT be a better result? How about this? Why not work on growing a little thicker skin,and stop letting EVERYTHING offend you and hurt your feelings? THIS worked for 200+ years in America,and NO,I wasn’t ever one of those who enjoyed “White Privilege”-I’m STILL waiting for mine. I endured my full share of insults etc. growing up,but I lived,and have made a good life in SPITE of it. All that “hate speech” was… Read more »

I was told my white privilege was coming in the mail but that was over 50 years ago so I don’t think I will get it. Maybe I should call the post office to see if they have it.

Saying that “hate speech” (whatever that is) should be criminalized, itself is hate speech.

I actually laughed when the NBA initially said they’d be cancelling their season (until their Chinese owners told them otherwise, right, LeBron?). Like, who did they even think was watching their games now anyway? I actually couldn’t even tell the difference when I accidentally tuned in to a WNBA game a week or two ago and saw no live fans in the stands…

Maybe we should all watch his felonious assualt of a Pittsburgh Steeler using a white quarterbacks helmet to bash his head with? Is there any way to ban that type of natural baboon behavior? Yes please lecture us some more while you try to act like you have your jungle tendencies under control.
