Contrary to these aspects, Baker views hate speech as a facilitator to potential material consequences, who's utterance alone does not present immediate effects. Accordingly, the responsibility of hate speech’s outcome is exclusively placed on the listener, asserting that the reaction to what is spoken dictates the consequence (Waldron 2012, 166). The listener’s integration of the speaker’s self disclosure is defined by Baker as “mental mediation,” where harm stems from the listener’s understanding. Therefore, those vulnerable to hate speech have the option to respond as a “critic or a victim” (Waldron 2012, 169).
Once these victims feel the anger rush in, it is not hard for them to fight back, either with words or with physical actions. The hate imposes on an individual 's ability to think and act freely. Secondly, hate speech can also change the brain of those who had little to mild prejudice into offenders that expresses their hate into their physical actions. Once hate is implemented into the brain, it is carried out from your neural system and the offender constantly think, feels and acts hate. Hate speech creates a ripple effect on a person’s freedom of
Ideology as common sense is forcing people to operate with a system of traces that they have no inventory for. His theory is that perpetuating an ideology works best when the people you are trying to control do not know what they don’t know. The people know part of the story, but they do not know the whole story. This theory of ideology explains why the ideology of toxic masculinity was able to spread so far and so deeply into our culture. The media uses the now mythic symbols of masculinity to enforce their ideologies.
With the president’s continuous, negative decisions stacked against him, Trump has the potential to authorize destructive behavior. Donald Trump has done more harm than good in the presidency; Trump ruined our national representation, is reckless with federal funding, and has demonstrated unconstitutional behavior. To other countries that have outlawed the use of Marijuana, the US has appeared weak. In addition to America’s
Is the way we are protesting today hurting our message? The first amendment is often taken as the ultimate freedom to say and protest what we want. Due to the first amendment we are allowed to have protest like the walk out a few days ago that allowed use to protest how the second amendment is affecting our society today. Manys means of protest is to rant and persuade others while I dont think this is very effective. With the freedom to protest and speak out on subjects it has brought out some distasteful hate in the world.
Fear is welcomed by experiences from an ugly confrontation or from trying to avoid a threat. It is usually considered as a response pertaining to something that terrorizes your security and safe being. Politically speaking when there is an dispute between America and some parts of the Middle Eastern countries the views Anti-Muslim rhetoric are opened. The information that politics use “may not only to identify the relevant group” (Sides p 589), but it is helpful to categorize and explain that particular group in terms of whether they are good or bad. This may push further on the public view of a group and attribute their attitudes of the issue.
Find something else to do!” (Doc 6.) Mr. Trump is expressing his anger and has made many statements and remarks towards NFL owners. Trump began his tirade against protesting players during a campaign rally in Alabama. These events brought up the question, is it ok to continue this protest, even if the president does not
Crimes committed against those who do no wrong, prejudices such as the terrors of burnings, lynchings, and decapitation are crimes of hate; the crimes that are motivated only by way of race, sexual orientation, disability, and many other stereotypes are those that are unforgivable. They serve no purpose but to humiliate, injure, and threaten. These crimes are the bane of society, but the role of authorities on matters of hate crimes has become blurred in a world of increasing violence of prejudice. Free speech and unprotected hate speech have come under review, and still violence increases. All of these statements beg the question: should the government more actively oppose hate speech?
Not only does the book contain a lot of value it exposes students to a major controversy. It should be noted that the opinions within the story are more liberally focused. Even though this is so, it is a very good tool to teach students about gay rights not matter your political affiliation. It is very important for students to be exposed to the issues earlier so they don’t have to run into them in the future. The story adds reassurance to the world.
Trump is famously known to have an answer and a solution for everything and everyone. Trump proposed a plan to put cameras on mosques. He states, “Our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad” (“The Rhetorical Brilliance of Trump the Demagogue”). Trump claims that his simple solution to keep an eye on muslims will stop the spread of radical terrorism. He implements the idea that muslims are not worthy of being called a “who” instead he calls them a “that” implying they are not humans.
An article by Lucia Graves recalls numerous accounts of violence in which black protestors or immigration activists were punched, kicked, or attacked by other Trump supporters. In addition, Trump openly justified these aggressive acts against protesters as somewhat necessary by stating, "We 've had some violent people as protesters" (Graves). Trump has elicited a strong response from his supporters, propagating negative sentiments towards the created out-group of Muslims and Latinos. By dismissing or remaining in denial on the issue, he is unknowingly condoning the continuation of aggression and polarization among voters. Heedlessly promoting the overgeneralization of groups like Muslims and Mexicans serves as yet another obstacle in the way of a post-racial society.
In E.J. Dionne Jr.’s editorial titled “Don’t Fall for the Media Distortion about Trump”, the popularity of Trump is questioned and analyzed based on the media’s portrayal of his political race. Dionne disperses an array of different logical appeals throughout his editorial to develop and clarify his argument. After discussing poll numbers in favor of the current president, the author states that if Americans “had lost all confidence in their institutions” (Dionne), discontent would be more evident. With this assertion, the author indicates that the views of Trump supporters are not representative of the American public.
As of late the feud between the media and President Trump has escalated, this has caused the general population to be forced to decide who is the instigator, Trump or the media? I believe that while the media does retaliate, this childish back and forth was fueled by Trump and someone in his position should not focus on a petty feud such as this. I believe that as president he must show a strong image and refrain from continuing to ridicule the media. Because of Trump’s constant twitter rants about the media and the overall popularity of the issue many articles have been written on both the pro-Trump and anti-Trump side. These articles use different rhetorical devices to convey their point and get the reader to agree with them.
Over the course of the election, he has displayed himself as a man from another time, a time of prominent racist and sexist ideals. Trump just makes himself out to be a target and an easy one with all that he says, how can any media outlet not target that? The fact of the matter is that most outlets choose to put down Trump and support Hillary because at least she is trying to set some kind of example while he acts like a child from the 1860`s. He claims that the media is bullying him as if he himself is not one. He acts like they are making up stories, when they have evidence.
