    Yes, we are fortunate enough to live in a country where freedom of speech is allowed; however, freedom from consequence is not allowed.
    …Such as the consequences of being murdered by those who disagree with what you have to say?

    Facepalm, indeed.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    It seemed clear enough what you wrote. People were murdered because someone else disagreed with what they had to say. If that's not what you meant by “…however, freedom from consequence is not allowed”, then you have some explaining to do.

"Gee, it would be fun to entice angry Muslims to come and try to kill us while we mock them?" Thankfully, it wasn't worse... but I can't imagine why anyone would think such an in-your-face outrage would be a swell idea.

    Kobie, the left can't stand free speech-take political correctness for example. The attempts to get Rush Limbaugh off the air, etc. Its obvious.

    Just as its obvious that freedom to keep and bear arms is the problem every time theres a school shooting, or that freedom of religion is preventing gays from being sold wedding cakes.

    The left hates the constitution because its a restraint against their statist tendencies.

    Well, that shouldn't be the case, but it is. And considering how eagerly at least one wrong-wing participant in this thread is to defend such “consequences”, is it any wonder that we've had so many other instances of careers and businesses ruined as a result of what ought to have been legitimate exercises of free speech and other First-Amendment rights?

Does that mean we can soon expect other responses as a natural 'consequence' from extremists in the US?

    Sounds like the conservatives are killing each other.

    Uh huh. Do you have these horse**** right-wing platitudes on a macro, or do you type them out each time you puke one up onto the forum?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
