The Colorado Republican Party is promoting an event that features anti-Trump leftists who compare President Trump to neo-Nazis and call for Trump supporters to be prosecuted for their political speech.
The Colorado GOP is promoting a “Confronting Hate & Violent Extremism” seminar scheduled for Feb. 13. It features George Selim, the Senior Vice President of Programs with the Anti-Defamation League, and Christian Piccolini, a former Neo-Nazi turned professional diversity scammer. It is being led by the Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab (CELL) that features anti-Trump literature on their website. The fake news and campus Marxists are also on board with the event.
“The CELL, The Denver Post and Univ. of Denver present this critical forum that will explore the rising extremism threat facing our nation and the efforts of the U.S. government and other organizations to combat it and prevent future acts of violence,” the description for the event reads.
The ADL has been waging a campaign to criminalize free speech on the internet and destroy the 1st Amendment as a response to the rise of Trump. Their hysterical propaganda has recently caused mass panic over the use of the ‘OK’ symbol.
“It’s long overdue for the social media companies to step up and shut down the neo-Nazis on their platforms,” ADL leader Jonathan Greenblatt told Congress earlier this month. “Companies like Twitter and Facebook need to apply the same energy to protecting vulnerable users that they apply to protecting their corporate profits.
“If they won’t answer the problem, you probably need to,” he added in an explicit call to end freedom of speech in America.
Picciolini is a veteran diversity scammer who is paid to propagandize against President Trump and conservatives. He was a neo-Nazi who committed acts of racist terror but now claims to be reformed in order to draw a paycheck from the gullible. He has tied President Trump to neo-Nazis for supporting limits on immigration and building the wall.
“[Trump] is feeding people – the same rhetoric that I used to say 30 years ago – build a wall, Muslim ban, you know, remove immigrants from the country – all the same things that I used to say,” Picciolini said in an interview with The Independent.
The Colorado Republican Party is promoting an agenda that literally sabotages their own efforts in an attempt to virtue signal and show how non-racist they are. This is why Republicans lost so frequently before Trump showed up.
Does the Arizona Constitution Provide Means for Lawmakers to Crack Down on Big Tech Censorship?
Does the Arizona Constitution provide protections from Big Tech?
The Arizona Constitution provides stronger protections for freedom of speech than the First Amendment does, potentially providing legislative solutions to Big Tech censorship in the state at a moment where political censorship is more pervasive than ever.
Article 2 Section 6, Arizona Constitution states that “Every person may freely speak, write, and publish on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that right. “
This differs greatly from the federal constitution in that it doesn’t limit the powers of a legislature to restrict freedom of speech. The US Constitution identifies “Congress” as the body it’s restricting from making a law abridging the freedom of speech.
The speech rights established by the Arizona Constitution are thus expressed positively; recognizing a right belonging to the people, as opposed to negating an infringement of said right.
Quite obviously, the Arizona Constitution was written in an 1910, an era in which the internet would’ve been just as inconceivable as it was in 1789.
In a 2019 Arizona Supreme Court case, the state’s highest court recognized in a 4-3 judgement that the Arizona Constitution provided greater protections than the federal constitution. The case recognized that violations of the First Amendment would represent de facto violations of the
It’s not outside the realm of possibility that the Arizona Attorney General, or state legislature, could hold Big Tech oligarchs to account for violating the Article 2 Section 6 rights of Arizona citizens- especially in a context the major platforms are collectively adjudicated to be acting as a trust in order to suppress competition and silence lawful speech.
Three Arizona legislators called upon Attorney General Mark Brnovich to begin an antitrust investigation into Big Tech oligarchs following the coordinated deplatforming operation against Parler, in which both Amazon and Apple colluded to restrict the free speech platform from the internet.
In an era where the overwhelming majority of free speech is communicated online, the censorious actions of Big Tech very plausibly represent an assault of the right of free expression guaranteed in the Arizona Constitution. Both chambers of Arizona’s legislature remain Republican, even as the state has become purple, and action against Big Tech censorship on the state level could become a real possibility in the coming years.
