Black Lives Matter Founder Wrongly Claims 1st Amendment Doesn’t Protect ‘Hate Speech’ (VIDEO)

We’ve come to the point where left wingers are lecturing the rest of America without any real understanding of the Constitution. While appearing on MSNBC, Patrisse Cullors, a founder of the Black Lives Matter movement suggested that what she deems ‘hate speech’ isn’t protected by the First Amendment.

Here’s a transcript via the Washington Free Beacon:

Black Lives Matter Founder Claims Hate Speech Isn’t Protected By First Amendment

Host Katy Tur asked Dignity and Power Now founder Patrisse Cullors about President Donald Trump’s initial statement on the violence from white supremacists at a Charlottesville, Va. rally, which appeared to equate the neo-Nazis with the counter-protesters.

“Draw a distinction for me, if you will,” Tur asked Cullors, who first spread the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.

“I think what is important at this moment is white nationalists are actually fighting to take away people’s rights,” she responded. “Black Lives Matter and groups like Black Lives Matter are fighting for equality.”

“Hate speech, which is what we’re seeing coming out of white nationalists groups, is not protected under the First Amendment rights,” she continued.

Cullors is incorrect. Under existing Supreme Court precedent, the U.S. government cannot sanction or ban speech simply because it is hateful or unpopular.

Did you notice that the host didn’t even correct her?

This is madness.
