Free Hate Speech on the Internet

I came upon a website called “Traditio” hosted by Medium.com – http://medium.com, founded by Evan Williams the billionaire. This site is so vile that it literally turned by stomach.

Here’s a very mild quote from this sewer of a site: “the international Jewish community which plagued Germany before Hitler and is today corrupting everything that is of positive nature.”

I complained about this hate speech to medium.com – http://medium.com and this is the answer I got:

Sorry for the delay.

We have reviewed the account, and currently we find it is not in violation of our rules:

We understand that this subject is of a very sensitive nature, and are sympathetic to that.

In these situations, we encourage people to use our response feature to voice their own opinions.

If you would like to discuss this further or have other arguments against our findings, please let me know.

Thanks,

According to their own rules:

“We think free expression deserves a lot of leeway. So, we generally think the best response to hateful speech is more speech, not censorship. Still, we reserve the right to take down hateful slurs, which tend to silence others while adding little if anything to the conversation.”

Well gee folks. Last time people were free to have these kinds of conversations, it wound up with gas chambers and crematorium and six million dead Jews.

I’M SICK TO DEATH OF THESE BILLIONAIRES ON THE INTERNET GETTING HATE SPEECH PUBLISHED AND PROMOTING JIHADI VIOLENCE IN THE NAME OF FREE SPEECH.

If you are with me, please write to [email protected] and complain about them not taking down Tradito and other virulent hater mongering sites. I’ve written to ADL. I’ll see if they can help. If you have some ideas, share them with me. If there is anything we’ve learned from subhumans like Hitler, it’s that words of hate become acts of hate and silence is interpreted as weakness.m

    The internet is full of this garbage.They have websites like stormfront vanguard news daily stormer and many more run by neo-nazis here in the USA. Basically they want to do ethnic cleansing here in America and to establish a fourth reich nazi regime that will expel all Jews African-Americans Latinos etc… or kill them,and this will fix all their problems.These websites are constantly spread racist conspiracies and inciting violence and yet the US government doesn’t take any legal action against them.Also on twitter is the same problem it’s full of neo-nazis who could say whatever they like and get away with it.
    So I’m not suprised at all.

    A Republican National Convection speaker falsely claimed that a famous Jew admired Satan, then falsely claimed the opposition Presidential candidate was mentored by this Jew.

    Ms. Ragen, do you have any advice on what we should do about this?

    Hi Naomi,

    Please send me the link to the actual blog that you’re referring to. Before I send an alert to my list, I like to read the source material myself. (I was unable to find the post you were referring to when I tried on my own.)

    Thanks!

    Evan Williams is a pathetic commentary on our Society and a blight on the Universe, and I doubt that Gerald is any better.

    I believe it’s the same case, as with a democracy in general: within a community of sane peoples it may mean a lot of great things, from sane leaders to sane economy, but within a community of, say, cannibals it would be just the enemies’ best meat for the best warriors’ plates, and nothing else. So, it’s only natural that any evil community would prefer freedom of evil speech only, proudly explaining everybody: “It’s a democracy, silly!”

    Free speech does not mean hatred to incite dumb people to follow. Usually it consists of lies about us which people do not know, have no way of understanding that is isa lieand act badly.

    This is not free speech it’s incitement of hatred against a people. It’s very very wrong.

      Claire, you are calling people dumb and describing their ideas as hate speech, but what you are really saying is that you are superior to them and hate to be forced to listen to ideas you don’t agree with.

    I AGREE COMPLETELY-THERE SHOULD BE LIMITS TO FREE SPEECH-VERY SIMPLY PUT-IF IT IS FALSE,HATEFUL OR POTENTIALLY DESTRUCTIVE-directly or indirectly-IT SHOULD BE BANNED-EVIL MONGERS NEED TO KNOW THAT THEY CANNOT GET AWAY WITH MURDER AND ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THEY WANT
