Many states in the United States including New Hampshire, West Virginia, and Iowa have moved to ban the teaching the furtherance of Critical Race Theory. However, due to the 1st Amendment, it is impossible to fully outlaw it. France, in contrast, does not have free speech and bans “hate speech” and some French politicians want to label Critical Race Theory, not inaccurately, as “hate speech”.
French conservative politicians propose using France's anti-racist hate speech laws against critical race theorists. 👀 https://t.co/OuedTw9KQU

This is in response to the National Union of Students of France (UNEF) banning White individuals and otherwise engaging in hateful bigotry. Translated from French:
“At the microphone of Europe 1 Wednesday, the president of the National Union of Students of France (UNEF) admitted the existence of meetings prohibited to whites. One more episode in the series of controversies that have affected the union for several years.”
While free speech should be protected, it is nonetheless enjoyable to see the Woke Left hoisted by their own petard.
