My irony meter just exploded in my face.

This thread is literally Salah and you advocating that Nazi speech be censored and/or blocked. Your cognitive blinders are working overtime.

Part of my point is that there's not really any proliferation going on.
*shrug* I disagree. Imx, the echo chamber is proliferating.

Right? Except the people who talk openly about killing me or that I don't have a right to exist? Yeah, fuck them and their whole damn lives. I don't have empathy for people who talk openly about my murder, death, or cessation of public life.
Oddly enough, this thread started as a specific call to silence voices. It wasn't a generic thread on oppression and rights. I'm opposed to the silencing of voices.

You keep using the future tense and appealing to fear. The fear you're appealing to is of an abstract thing that may, or may not, happen at some unknown future date without a concrete road from A to B.
There's no need to speculate. Right-wing attempts at censorship in the US are well-documented. Just recently, the YA Bestseller The Hate You Give was banned in parts of Texas. Right-wing challenges to texts and speech by minorities, the LGBT community, and socialists is ongoing and pervasive. Anti-protest laws proliferated over the last year, and the Justice Department has attempted coercive, punitive measures against social media sites for allowing communication of protesters. These weren't hypothetical events. They happened.

Given the tools to silence entire websites, and they will use them. There is no hypothetical involved. They're trying to do it right now.

The mere fact that you think the abstract future case is somehow more relevant or compelling then the current situation where some of the same people who advocate for an end to my existence are somehow going to maybe be harmed possibly someday does not inspire empathy in me for your position because you're (consistently) showing the inability to have empathy for what's being done right now.
Uh-huh. If you say so.
