I think Ms. Geller and the writers she highlights have mostly been vary careful to simply CALL OUT terrorism, jihadism, antisemitism, and anti-West prejudice on the part of Muslims WITHOUT ever saying that “all Muslims” are despicable people, worthy only of hate. Or to discuss elements of Muslim BELIEF (which are not shared, in that interpretation, by all Muslims) that are relied upon by jihadists to support terrorism against Jews and the West, sexual slavery, and other abominations. That is NOT hate speech; it is CALLING OUT hateful ideology for what it is.
As far back as 1988, after an extensive review of the research, the DEA’s own chief administrative judge Francis L. Young concluded: “Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known.” The National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine found similarly. The DEA ignored the research. In 2010, at least 15 double-blind crossover studies, the Gold Standard of research, are among the 20,000 studies showing the safety and efficacy of medical cannabis and NO evidence it causes cancer—more supportive research for marijuana than any drug ever approved by the FDA! In 2009, forced by the overwhelming weight of research evidence, the American Medical Association overcame its previous hostility to support “that marijuana’s status as a federal Schedule I controlled substance be reviewed with the goal of facilitating the conduct of clinical research and development of cannabinoid-based medicines.” The supportive 2010 University of California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research Report to the Legislature also demonstrates numerous benefits and safety of marijuana.
Facebook’s content strategy is almost certainly to prove functionality and its ability to drive users to the service, and then try to lure other content producers to the service. But like a number of Facebook products before it, it’s unclear why publishers would want to use the platform. For example, Facebook Live already allows publishers to stream content like protests or post- Game of Thrones commentary live to their pages. They can also push regular video content wherever they want without an exclusive deal, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter or YouTube, and all three of these channels can be embedded elsewhere.
