Love, Hate and Pride in Texas - a documentary

Postby AndyC » Fri Dec 15, 2017 1:41 pm

A 55 minute documentary shot, produced and directed by a friend, Kurtz Frausun (famously unbiased) and featuring another friend, Ivan Stöber. Give it a look and share if you like it:

Wow, very interesting! I do hope that he gets the funding to buy better camera and sound equipment; not that it was garbled and unintelligible, but simply for the sake of better production values.

:mad5 Ok, so this was very bad for my blood pressure :mad5

Each segment made me more angry and depressed than the prior one. I finally blew a gasket at the "Fakestinians" rally in Dealey Plaza. Besides the fact that this was about as anti-American a crowd as you can get, full of anti-fa, socialists and other detritus, I doubt that any of these idiots realize that there is no such place as "Palestine". After I saw them stomping on the Star of David I knew that had I been there it would have been very ugly. Imagine if they were urinating on the Koran or burning bibles? This was clearly anti-Jewish hate speech and not protected free speech.

That was hard to watch. It doesn't seem like a documentary, but just a collection of filming groups of people filled with hate. What was the point of the video? :confused5

I think it was just a way to show the "good" the "bad" and the "ugly". There was some showing true American, and Texas patriots, but also illustrated the "underbelly fringe" groups who are anything but, true Texans, or patriots.
I would have liked to have seen more coverage of the "good guys" but hopefully it demonstrates to the left, that there is a difference between those who want to preserve history, and American values, from those who are motivated by hate.
Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and showing the ridiculousness, of the platforms espousing hate, i.e. KKK, BLM, and Antifa, may help those of us,who still think for themselves, as well as, those who may be swayed by the rhetoric, see how baseless these groups are. JMHO

Let us not forget that "hate" speech IS protected by the 1st Amendment. Much conservative speech is already labelled by the Liberals/Communists as hate speech.

I do not think anyone was forgetting that. Speech while it is suppose to be protected by the 1st Amendment is like all actions. Actions, including speech have consequence, whether good or bad. The 1st Amendment protects the right of free speech, it is not suppose demand that all agree to what is spoken or that they even have to listen, it also is not suppose to protect the speaker of the consequence that the speech invokes. If the consequence is brought about illegally from others, then that action in itself should be prosecuted. If the speaker yells "fire" in a crowded room when there is no fire then the speaker should be liable for the damages to property and others caused by their speech.
