    actually DP can and does infringe our speech but since its a private forum that does not raise governmental ramifications. If someone on the streets of NYC were to call you something rude the government cannot punish them. If someone says the same thing in this thread, DP can and will impose infractions and may well ban them from posting here

    I've never NOT defended her right to say what she wants.

    No, you just consistently attacked her personally for exercising her rights under the first amendment while your criticism of the Islamists has been 'muted'. I think we're all familiar with the "yes, but" arguments being displayed here and you don't need to explain your position further.

    See the sig, hoss. There's no "no" about it. At NO POINT have I said she doesn't have the right to say what she wants. Your claims to the contrary are a bald-faced lie.

    I didnt claim otherwise. But Pamela Geller is one small speck in the scheme of things, she is a side issue in a much larger picture and that's what the leftists either ignore or can't see. You and the rest still don't seem to understand that this is not about P. Geller!

    She is a side issue; however, side issues deserve their moment in the sun.

    I have been CRYSTAL CLEAR on my issues with radical Islam. I don't have to couch it with every post.

    Not religious art, or even secular art.

    Kobie, you often say this, but most often I see you defending terrorists or statists.

    Think about what crystal clear means.

    Given that a mod warning just dropped, I'm dropping it too.

    I've never once defended a terrorist, and I defy you to prove me wrong. And your definition of "statist" is clearly different than mine, and to equate "Terrorist" with "Statist" is pretty dishonest of you.

    Since we're on mod warning number FOUR on this thread (I don't remember ever seeing that many in one thread), I'm taking my leave.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
