Skip to comments.CNN Host Asks If FBI Should Have ‘Shut Down’ Trump Supporters Chanting ‘Lock Her Up

CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour called "lock her up" chants by Donald Trump supporters "hate speech" in a new interview and asked James Comey if he wished he had "shut down that language" in his capacity as FBI Director at the time.
Amanpour recounted the frequent chants at Trump 2016 campaign rallies about imprisoning Hillary Clinton for her perceived crimes and wondered if they should have been legal, but Comey responded it was not the role of government officials to censor that speech.
"Do you, in retrospect, wish that people like yourself, the head of the FBI, the people in charge of law and order, had shut down that language, that it was dangerous potentially, that it could have created violence, that it's kind of hate speech? Should that have been allowed?"

Once again, the left shows it’s ignorance of the freedom of speech and advocates for censorship of those with opposing views.
Free speech. Yeah, conservatives have it,too, Commie News Network
Comey was FBI Director in name only. His subordinates ran the bureau, and ran into the ground. All he did was pick up his paycheck.
Where does she think she is ? This isn't the UK where they no longer have free speech.
LOCK HER UP!
And Comey too.
I think every post made on FR should be routed through Christiane Amanpour first. Sure, itll take longer and most posts wont get through, but its the right thing to do.
In their perfect world the Gestapo is real. They forget that the first amendment isnt exclusively theirs.
I thought we had free speech in this country...
Christiane Amanpour needs to have her citizenship revoked so she can be deported back to the Iranian cesspool she crawled out of.
Every DAY the Leftists accuse me of some sin against them or call me a bad name.
Keep it up! We’ll MAGA without you! I don’t mind one tiny little bit. :)
Leftist ignorance of the 1st. Amendment. They want it for themselves but deny it to others who disagree with them.
Wonder what her reaction to
We are going to impeach the MF’er(I am being polite)
Or the F bombs that HRC and her ilk drop as easily as saying ‘the’
Those in power define what “hate speech” means.
why not, Obama-Clinton locked up several filmmakers for making films critical of Mohammed and Clinton.
The enemies of the first amendment have the wrong idea about what constitutes hate speech. Just because they hate it, doesn’t make it hate speech.
Nope, ridiculous question.
Next ridiculous question.
How was Comey or ANYBODY going to enforce the “hate speech” clause in the New World Order dictates? He could not very well “lock them all up” or put them into exile. This is not exactly a concept well rooted in the US law code, and if enforced at all, is only in a very capricious manner.
The First Amendment is such a thorn in the side of the command-and-control advocates.
Christiane Amanpour is of course antiAmerican against the First Amendment and so is a spokeswoman for antiAmerican CNN.
She and CNN have no allegiance to the US Constitution,
She should be expelled as an agent of sedition!
