Justin Trudeau Hates Free Speech

“In a pluralist, diverse and respectful society like ours, we owe it to ourselves to be aware of the impact of our words, of our actions on others, particularly these communities and populations who still experience a great deal of discrimination.”

-Justin Trudeau

Do you hate ‘hate speech?’ Do you think the world would be a better place if we were to rid ourselves of hate? First, we would have to objectively define what constitutes as hate without talking about our feelings. Just because I ‘hate’ something doesn’t mean it is universally hated. For example, I hate hearing people talk about socialism as a plausible economic system. I believe socialism functions on coercion and theft. I find that socialists hate wealthier people, and would therefore categorize socialism as hate speech if I were in charge and ‘hate speech’ was an unprotected form of speech.


Certainly socialists wouldn’t agree with me. They argue that their intentions are rooted in love for the oppressed. How can I view what the preach as evil, hateful, and full of spite, yet they believe their intentions are pure, full of love, and morally righteous? The Founders understood that the governed were going to differ in their beliefs, evidenced by the freedom of religion clause in the First Amendment.


The Founder protected our right to voice our opinions free from government censorship because they understood the value of the market place of ideas. They understood that it is far more dangerous to silence someone for their beliefs than it is to combat bad information with better information. They understood that government oppression leads to violence, because they engaged in a Revolutionary War against a tyrannical government in order to achieve the rights we enjoy today.


Nobody hates freedom of speech more than Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trudeau wants stricter restriction on hate speech laws in Canada. In his latest overreach of government, Trudea introduced a bill that would put internet speech in the sam jurisdiction of the broadcast regulator in May. In June, Trudeau introduce another bill that would loosely define hate speech and give the government the ability to subjectively decide.


While we’re not Canadian, and our First Amendment protects us from tyrants like Trudeau, we’re experiencing a similar attack on our human rights from the White House. Instead of combatting hate speech using government force, the way Canada likes to get things done, the White House is teaming with private online platforms in an effort to direct what content is appropriate and what content should be removed. It’s unclear how long the Biden administration has been colluding with Facebook, but Jen Psaki’s admission suggests that the big guy may have been involved in removing articles exposing his son Hunter Biden prior to the election.
