I would say the Guardian needs shutting down but now the left has ruined comedy we have to have something to laugh at.

"Reading between the lines, the lesson becomes: “We are the judges. We will tell you when the debate is over and then you are no longer permitted to express your dissenting opinion.”"

What exactly does The Guardian Guard? The long commie march through our institutions and freedoms it seems!

Maybe the Guardian's unpopular speech should be shut down. The Guardian is spouting foolishness.

and this is why you never join scam groups like the eu, nor do you allow your rights be infringed like this in actual free countries. leftist authoritarians in the us no doubt will be clamoring for this

The author of the piece in the Guardian, Martha Gill, should be fired for attacking the First Amendment upon which the press so vitally relies. She is hacking away at the trunk of the tree she and they are perched in.

No, Martha, you insolent dunce, there is no such thing as "unsayable" speech, which you smeared Jordan Peterson with, and there is absolutely no basis in law or morality for you to say "some debates should be shut down." Nobody died and appointed you God, to dictate to others what should, and shouldn't, be discussed, which ideas are worthy, and which are not.

Would somebody in the Western world grow a fucking pair of balls and defend the values and traditions that catapulted our societies into the first rank of nations? Is there nobody in academia or the cultural sphere who will champion the Judeo-Christian heritage that made us a beacon of freedom for all the world?

Free Speech should be stopped so that we can control what is discussed. We are obviously MUCH cleverer than all the millions of people that have gone before and fought for Free Speech as a sacred right, we are very very clever.

Yeah, debates like "Communism" "Socialism" "Open Borders"

The Guardian needs to be shut down NOW, who do the hell they are to tell people what to think? Are they the word of GOD? I think not! My message to the Guardian pundits "FUCK OFF NOW!"

In the Guardian article she says: "The trouble with the free speech defence is that it works to shut down any argument against it." She admits that it's defence. This is like saying the problem with self-defence is that it tries to stop someone doing harm to your life.
