    I'm saying that the article doesn't support what its headline claims and you're a fool for believing it without any thought.

    You guys need to learn the difference between forcibly silencing someone and simply saying they shouldn't be saying whatever they are saying.

    Let's try and example, I'm going to say, "you should stop being so melodramatic and stop comparing things to Hitler." Here I go, "you should stop being so melodramatic and stop comparing things to Hitler." OK now before you **** a chicken in outrage remember that I'm just disagreeing with you, nothing about what I said should be taken to mean I want to take your rights away.

    Questions?
    Let me requote it for you:
    A Connecticut mayor is demanding a Facebook group be disbanded and a photo be removed that compares him to Adolf Hitler.

    The photo in question was posted in the Whale Tales Facebook page by an anonymous poster. Group administer Kathleen Mitchell said a number of New London city employees and board members write anonymously for Whale Tales, The Day newspaper reported.

    The photo compared Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio’s speaking skills to those of the Nazi leader’s.

    “I understand the intent of it. It compared Daryl’s oratory skills and skill at manipulating an audience (to Hitler‘s),” Miss Mitchell told The Day. “He’s a dynamic speaker.”

    Mr. Finizio said in a Facebook post Sunday that the photo, which referred to him as Adolph Fibnizio, “should shock the conscience of every New Londoner.”

    “This kind of venomous political discourse poisons our community. Comparisons to Nazi-ism are clearly outside the boundaries of acceptable behavior,” he wrote.

    Mr. Finizio called on the page’s organizers to disband the Facebook group and for politicians who have received support from the page to denounce the posting, otherwise they are “condoning this type of behavior,” he said, The Day reported.

    I didn't say I believed it. I even mentioned I don't do Facebook, However, IF TRUE my feeling is free speech is free speech and I asked others opinion.

    You know that bold part is what the writer said, not what the mayor said right? I specifically said there was no quote as in a quote from the mayor that backs up what the headline and article says.

    Slander is a big deal in a major news organization.

    but hardly on topic.

    It calls into question the credible of your source, we can't really discuss your topic if the source for it is so flimsy now can we?

    I don't think you have any interest in discussing TOPIC.

    I'll disagree that any politician "receiving support" from that page needs to publicly denounce it. Those politicians aren't any more responsible for that douchebaggery than I am.

    I don't think Facebook should feel any obligation to do anything about it.
    Pretty much this, 100%

    Since I do not want to join you in temp suspension, I'll only say it followed the rules: Title is directly copied verbatim from Washington Times. The whole article was copied verbatim (I just used the "request reprints" button). I'm sure the author would not print without "credible source". Finally, I proposed for debate: Is people becoming too complacent at obvious rights erosion.
