The News won the case. Humans as individuals are able to express themselves even if their opinions are different. Freedom Of Speech allows us to speak directly about our opinions and express them. However, what we say shouldn’t have bad or negative effect on another people, in other words we use this right to speak freely but we shouldn’t violate another persons’ right by using Freedom Of Speech as
Jackson Katz’s film Tough Guise 2 seeks to expose how the media promotes a toxic ideology behind what makes a man masculine and show that it is a social construct. For decades print, television, videogames, and film have presented masculinity in a way that makes men think the only way to be manly is to be emotionally unavailable, sexually aggressive, and violent. This ideology has been a curse on culture in America and many other countries around the world. “We're not living in the Wild West. We're not a Third World nation” (Katz).
The Rodney King trial started as a drunk driving incident but ended in the destruction of Los Angeles. King was in a high speed chase with the Las Angeles Police department and when they caught him King was then viciously beat up and attacked. This was one of the first police brutality incidents filmed and released to the general public and eventually ended the era of not showing what happens behind closed doors. Along with being one of the first police brutality incidents filmed, it was also one of the first police brutality incidents taken to court. A lot of attention and controversy surrounded this trial just because of how it hit America.
Religion has always been a big part of the American culture however the American constitutional separation between church and state have teethed on the edge of collapse as religious fundamentalists tried to blur the line between the separation. The Scopes “Monkey” Trial brought to the forefront the heated debate in the religious battle to overturn the Butler Act which forbade public schools science curriculum in Dayton, Tennessee from including evolution. John scopes, a high school biology teacher, employment was suspended for violating the Butler Act, and this brought the American Civil Liberties Union to his defense in part to mount the first legal challenge against the Butler Act, in order to bring to the forefront of national and international debate the role of religion in secular education. The debate has come full circle and is again a hot topic as public educators are confronted with the fundamentalists insisting upon the teaching of religious ideology as part of secular school curriculum and similar demands for prayer and the elimination of the teaching of evolution in public schools.
The freedom of speech is one of the most important rights an individual has. The freedom of speech gives us the right to share our opinions and thoughts without the fear of being retaliated against and oppressed. Lately this freedom of speech seems to be greatly limited. It is seen as a verbal attack now if you say something that may go against popular opinion or may offend someone. This subject is tackled in John Stossel's "Censored in America" Fox News hour.

The war on drugs pushed people into fear, and therefore manipulated law enforcement to go after people of color. Again, our media has promoted incorrect stereotypes, and the politicians lied to us through it all. All of this is the reason that The New Jim Crow exists. The last theme of The New Jim Crow is history. History is seeming to repeat itself, and Alexander (2012) explains in her book that what is going on today, is exactly what happened during the Jim Crow age.
Other critics argued Poe was a victim of cooping, a practice that entailed bribing him with alcohol, thus forcing him to vote repeatedly in polling booths for a particular candidate, as Balitmore’s elections were notorious for political uproar and extortion. This would explain the conditions under which Poe was foundOthers suggested Poe died of other medical ailments ranging from brain tumors, heart disease, tuberculosis, rabies, epilepsy,
Abortion is a very circumstantial topic, it is not discussed in everyday conversation. Additionally, it is a controversial topic and differs from politics to religion. In this paper, I will discuss a movie called Doonby, and relate it to the real-world scandal of Planned Parenthood being exploited for selling the parts of aborted babies. I selected an article for the real-world phenomenon about the Congressional hearing for Planned Parenthood. The hearing is focused on the company breaking laws to sell aborted babies.
In order to hide the incriminating evidence, Nixon compulsively lied throughout the whole predicament to the press and to the people of America-even the government. Eventually, Nixon handed over the tapes as commanded by the US Supreme Court. Suspiciously, eight and a half minute of a recording was missing, potentially making it impossible to uncover all of the evidence. This was the tragedy of the Watergate Scandal. One of the tapes, called “Smoking Gun” confirms Nixon had yielded justice.
“Living out in the Red Zone, as it were, with normal people, they have earned the right to be called free and independent journalists, at great personal risk. But they also know that to cover the action -- to get to Kandahar, or Marja, where I was a month ago -- they usually have no alternative but to embed” (Ignatius 1). The limitation of those who die in wars is a form of censorship that should not be observed. “Such images were not to be seen in case they aroused certain kinds of negative sentiment” (Butler 65). This pulls a curtain over what is happening and may mute our
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the right of “freedom of speech” Bill of Rights, n.d., p. 1). It was designed to guarantee a free exchange of ideas, even if the ideas are unpopular. One of the most controversial free speech issues involves hate speech. Hate speech is a public expression of discrimination against a vulnerable group, based on “race, ethnicity, religion,” and sexual orientation (Karman, 2016, p. 3940). Under the First Amendment there is no exception to hate speech; although, hateful ideas are protected just as other ideas.
Nixon fought against the committee in an effort to keep his precious tapes out of the public eye. Nixon was eventually forced to turn over the tapes under a Supreme Court Order. The tapes proved that Nixon was responsible for the scandal. Towards the end of 1974, prosecutors had enough evidence to prove that Nixon was guilty. Nixon resigned from office on August 9th, 1974, making history as the first American president to resign from office.
Great post and I agree with everything you said. The PowerPoint that was made to go along with Lincoln’s speech was terrible and unnecessary. I’m certain if he had used a presentation such as that one that his speech wouldn’t have been as much as a success as it was. I went in the same direction as you did when describing what we would put into the slide show for this speech. Images that represented freedom and the values America was built upon.
I believe freedom of speech should not be limited. Nowhere in the constitution does it give the government the right to limit our freedoms ,that act is truly unconstitutional. If we let them limit our freedoms then that gives them the power to limit little by little until it 's eventually all gone. The people should not be suppressed they should be allowed to put forth their opinions and speak against anything they feel isn 't right. the constitution states that you can say whatever you want as long as it does not include anything profine, or violent.
