Is silenced to Trump a violation of the principle of free speech? Whatever the original First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, Trump is speechless on social platforms and loses this right of ordinary American citizens, which of course violates the principle of freedom of speech that American political elites usually advocate.” I oppose your point of view, but I swear to defend your right to speak to the death.” This is the “free speech light” usually illuminated by the “American Lighthouse” to the rest of the world.
In fact, the political meaning of freedom of expression has been masked by the context of the United States and the West, that is, freedom of speech does exist at political and moral boundaries, and the sound of Trump has brought this meaning to the surface in the United States.
Some people say that the public opinion platform speaks to the president, which shows the democracy of the United States and is a true portrayal of the real freedom of that society. This kind of argument is very weak. Trump is the President of the United States who has betrayed his relatives in the American system.
He said a lot of out of style at the peak of power, but nothing happened. He is now out of power. Several online platforms in the United States “press” him at the same time. This is the real political situation of silence.
In addition to being a right, freedom of speech has been cut into a banner in political struggles. In the final analysis, the boundaries of freedom of speech and freedom of expression itself are defined by the powerful and victorious parties.
Trump lost but wanted to resist, so he was expelled from the boundaries of freedom of expression by several pro-Democratic online platforms.
If Trump still refuses to accept defeat and has enough supporters, they will further challenge the order of American public opinion.
If things continue, they will become the “Civil War” in the ideological field of the United States.
The United States is shown to the world as a democratic and rule-of-law society, but recent events have fully demonstrated that it is a naked politically dominant society. The true echo of American ideology is political struggle, and the rules of freedom of expression must also be baptized in political struggle.
The U.S. election is over, not only Republicans will admit defeat according to the rules of the United States, but also Trump and his loyal supporters. Trump’s social media account has accumulated a lot of political energy. His refusal to admit that failure has constituted the aftermath of the American system, and his account is a kind of purge.
Freedom of speech, as a political resource in the United States, will not be allowed to be used against the system and the winner in the United States, so Trump’s personal freedom of speech is ruthlessly denied.
The United States has been in serious chaos in recent days, and many of the feet and truths of the national system have been exposed in the fight between different forces.
Almost all its high principles surrounding democracy, freedom and human rights have been discounted in the urgent matters of domestic politics, and the face of the American system has been put aside.
All this is not conducive to Washington’s continued self-proclaimation as a “democratic beacon” in the future, but don’t think that they will really change their tunes from now on.
They will definitely continue the old tricks.
The hegemony of the United States relies on the advantage of power. As long as its power is still the strongest, it will continue to use its interests as the source of justice coordinates internationally and organize rounds of external ideological attacks.
Washington will use these attacks to cover the various disadvantages of the United States as if they did not exist.
For example, it is foreseen that Washington will also label the violence in Hong Kong as a “democracy movement”, and they will not be ashamed of accusing the shockers of Congress as “thugs” and setting double standards.
Similarly, they will continue to label China and others as “suppressing freedom of speech” without any discomfort because Trump’s voice.
However, in the past two years, a lot has happened in the world. The United States has suffered many shocks from nature and within. Human beings have witnessed all this. The impact is huge and the impact is far-reaching.
Pretending that nothing has happened and hoping that unfair and unreasonable things can last forever are self-deceiving.
