Watch out this little lady has a bone to pick! She’s on a rampage and has some words to say. Now don’t be fooled she might be little, but she can sure pack a punch. Josie had trusted Mimi, but she crossed a line. She won’t even talk to her anymore. In Josie’s eyes, she’s done the unforgivable:
“She’s saying bad words”
It’s usually frowned upon to use said “bad” words in front of young children, and Josie sure caught on to keeping Mimi accountable for using them. She sure isn’t afraid to use her voice to let everyone know how it made her feel, and even adding in her two cents on the future of free speech in America. Like the video says, she truly is a diva in training. I wouldn’t want to debate with her when she grows up!
To be fair although she proves her point, the video is actually super cute and hilarious to watch
Eric is Josie’s father who is a comedian who uploads funny videos to Youtube. A lot of the time Josie is the star of these videos because she’s clearly the real comedian of the family. Josie is a bright and passionate young girl with her father’s sense of humor.
Not only is he raising a hilarious daughter, but has taught her morals and right from wrong. You can see in this video he definitely taught her the difference between “good” and “bad” words.
Even though America is a country that grants its citizens the freedom of speech, Josie “knows it when she sees it” when it comes to using bad words
That’s just what the late supreme court justice, Potter Stewart, famously said when he was hearing a case in 1964. The expression instantly became one of the most widely known phrases in the history of the United States Supreme Court.
There is some debate about this type of reasoning. It’s called Abductive Reasoning, which seeks to find the simplest conclusion springing from an observation. This type of reasoning is usually expressed as, “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”
The argument against abductive reasoning goes like this: If Josie knows it when she sees it, does that mean Mimi sees the same thing? Do they see things the same way? Who’s right and who’s wrong? What Josie sees may not be what Mimi sees and well that’s okay. Different strokes for different folks.
All abductive reasoning aside, Josie is still upset about it
Now Josie stresses throughout the video that Mimi used “bad words”. You’re probably wondering what the bad word was anyway?
Well, the late great comedian, George Carlin, had a famous bit where he discusses the words you can never say on television. We won’t list the words here, but you get the idea. These became the famous seven words that are considered highly inappropriate and prohibited on public broadcast on United States airwaves.
Most everyone would consider these seven words, “Bad.” But, were any of these words used by Mimi, and which one upset Josie in the first place?
The late Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo declared back in the 1930s, that Freedom of Speech,
“is the matrix, the indispensable condition of nearly every other form of freedom.”
But is there a breaking point where if certain speech is so hateful, harmful or controversial that it should lose it’s First Amendment constitutional protection? That’s up for debate, but what is not up for debate is how upset Josie is.
Josie makes it clear how she feels,
“It’s not funny Mimi, I told you!”
You won’t want to miss out on the debate, you can join in by clicking the video below and I know what you’re thinking was the word really that bad? Well, you’ll have to check it out for yourself, but I can tell you it’s not any of the seven dirty words.
It’s really cute to see Josie be so passionate about the “bad” word Mimi used. I don’t think it’s a curse word, but you can decide for yourself.
