    Tough nuggets. It came up in the context of a different conversation. Don't like it? Take it up with someone who cares.

    I think Kobie is trying to muddy the waters.

    Yeah, that's pretty obvious. And then, as usual, he backs off.

    I HAVE defended her right to say it. Repeatedly. As have many, many other "leftists" in numerous threads. Every instance of which you've summarily ignored.


    To the bolded. Which strikes me as odd. Just as we might support her right to say stupid, even though we don't agree with it, we can disagree and criticise her expression, though we acknowledge the right to say it. What the heck is the difference. Other than focusing on the undisputed right keeps the attention away from the contempt of her expression.

    Certain conservatives have decided that "the left hates free speech," so they intentionally ignore when people reaffirm Geller's right to free speech (even if some of what she says is abhorrent) so they can maintain the claim. Such is life when dealing with people whose sole goal on this forum is to demonize. I don't expect honesty out of these people.

    Can we use the responsibility notion elsewhere. Such as, sure that black man the right to eat at the lunch counter, but he to be responsible with his liberties. He can't expect to eat at the counter without consequences.

    That was somewhat the way Democrats treated people they didn't like in the Jim Crow era. Some things never change

She has the "right" to be ugly, provocative, mean spirited in her little amateurish display, but she has to reap the consequences. Wonder if she's been to see the injured guard and his family or not. If so, I really wonder what she told them.
    Let's try another example. Sure that baby killer has the right to open and abortion clinic, but he has to reap the consequences

    Mohammad was a murderer who had sex with a girl when she was 9. If he cannot be mocked, who can?


    It's amazing, the mental gymnastics people are capable of performing as long as something is called "religion". Just because a warlord created a manifesto in order to bind his warriors to him, should people living 1400 years later be restricted in their ability to call it what it is?
