"While it is easy to identify the villains as medieval Islamic fascists, they are not the only force at work against free speech. It also comes from EU judicial court rulings and government universities. Novelist turned philosopher Ayn Rand warned us in her 1962 speech, The New Fascist Frontier, “Freedom of speech means freedom from interference, suppression or punitive action by the government — and nothing else.”

"Yet anti-speech trends now manifest themselves in American media outlets, college campuses, and city streets. The destruction begins with a fascist takeover of the linguistic territory. The best way to do that is to assign ambiguous meanings to words, and the meaning of ‘violence’ is a good placed to start. In 2020 jargon, it means both “Words are Violence” and “Silence is Violence.” Take your pick."

    This seems like a great example of out of sight, out of mind. There was never much outrage in postmodern western media about these murders, for reason this group understands very well.
