    These are the people who will finally hear the appeals, I'm not certain that they can pass out their judgments in a completely non-political, non-religious manner.

    Europe is screwed, but the same thing is beginning to happen here. They've been flexing their muscles in Canada and the US as well. Remember the threats over South Park, and they won? Hollywood will not dare make any more movies about 'bad' Muslims either.

    Muslims now have legal UN backing and anyone risking their lives to be critical of Islam will even be labeled a "racist". The Left, as in the past, is once again attacking Israel and the Jewish people also while defending Islam. The world is going mad once more, it seems.

    It's a travesty that this even happened. Freedom of speech does not just apply to stuff that you like, and politically it just makes the Freedom Party stronger.

    You do realize that the article deals with a minority within a minority, right? I don't understand what sort of point you think you're making here. The world is going mad because of a couple of idiots in a far-left irrelevant German party??

    No, it's an accumulation of things, Arcana, and it's international. This is just one of them. We can see also what's happening to the Jews in Europe.

    You think times they aren't a changin'?

    I have to agree. Hate speech laws are bull**** laws and should be done away with. Any form of "hate crime" is just more bull**** laws passed to expand power of government. Crime is crime. We already have designations for crime based on intent (lie 1st, 2nd, 3rd degree murder).
