    I think that the one thing you're forgetting about Europe, is that when they should have had laws restricting hate speech; they didn't . . . In a civilized society, there is no rational reason to degrade and rail against someone's ethnicity, in any setting: can't do it here, so calling it free speech is a pretty weak example of a little kid learning cuss words and using them on the playground.
    Free speech protects unpopular speech as well.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    It's in the realm of artistic expression and in the "Nobody Knows Me" video explaining social problems, Le Pen's face is hardly recognisable as parts of her face only appear for a second along with other public figures such as Hosni Mubarak and Hu Jintao and it should belong to a modern art gallery. The video is posted on Billboard.com.

    What a profound reply. There was nothing unpopular about the hate speech of 1940 Europe either, but wouldn't it have been interesting if that kind of speech was illegal at the time?

    you can't? Surely, likely depending on how you went about it, you might end up detained, and investigated, but you would never be charged for saying mean things to the man (example, the guy who told Cheney to **** off in New Orleans). Also, this board is private and not a function of the state, so you don't have rights to free speech here

    Wrong. Political speech operates on the laws of internet forum troll: Whatever the moderator (media) approves of is what everyone is constantly bombarded with into acceptance, whatever the moderator (media) disapproves of is slandered and trolled.

    Well, you can, and can get arrested then get paid:


    Couple Arrested at Bush Rally Settles Lawsuit for $80,000

    Jeff and Nicole Rank went to Bush's Fourth of July speech at the state Capitol wearing homemade T-shirts with a red circle with a bar through it over the word "Bush."

    On the back, hers read "Love America, Hate Bush" and his read "Regime Change Starts At Home."

    When the couple refused to cover up their shirts, they were arrested and charged with trespassing. Those charges were later dropped by the city of Charleston, and city officials later apologized.


    I guess being on public lands at a public event they must've not been standing in their "free speech zone" Bush was giving us back then.

    i know, to you it must seem like my IQ is at the genius level, apparently.

    I plainly quoted Hitler saying that nazis were nothing more than marxists, in essence, making them wholly indistinguishable, logically, from communism.

    Crying about the truth that commies and nazis are a bunch of leftist turds in the same toilet bowl of socialism doesn't change the fact they are.

    What's next guys, fingers in your ears? Gonna hold your breath? Please do.

    Then someone posted the whole Hitler quote, not your partitioned shortened quote and it blew your whole argument that they are indistinguishable.
