From Frank Gaffney, the president of CSP:
Free Speech Under Fire: The Red-Green Axis’ Unrestricted Warfare in OSCE and Beyond
(Washington, DC): The West’s free speech is under fire. It seems that every day, from every direction, the enemies of freedom encroach more upon this most sacred right. We see “snowflakes” on college campuses shouting down or even attacking speakers with whom they disagree. We see the politically correct mainstream media exploding in outrage over every utterance of President Donald J. Trump that does not meet their politically exacting standards. We see politicians too mealy-mouthed to tell the truth — especially when it comes to the brutal, totalitarian Islamic ideology known as Sharia, of which the meekest critique generates faux cries of “Islamophobia.” We see social media giants stamping out speech of those with whom they disagree, while they allow the speech of jihadis to flourish. We see international organizations, from the United Nations to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to the little-known Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), working each in its own insidious way to strangle expression.
And from everywhere, we hear the trope, “hate speech.” What is hate speech, exactly?
