    I don''t care how many hurt feelings there are, the guy didn't really do anything wrong to anyone.

    He's just an incredible douche bag. That is not a crime.
    According to US laws he did not do anything.
    He broke the law and he is being charged under that law, what is so hard to understand?
    I don't agree with every law in my statue books but i follow it. If i go to Saudi Arabia, i'd abide by theirs. Or if i visited US - I would not suddenly drive on the other side of the road would i?

    I understand he broke their law.

    We have to understand though that there is a minimum of what should or should not be laws.

    Hate speech laws are supremely retarded.

    "Ohh noes my feelings are hurt call the police."

    Driving is a formality and not a way to control thought.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    That is not how hate speech works.

    It was a example. The point i was trying to make was i'd follow the laws of any country i'd visit

    I'm not trying to mock you but at some point someone has to get offended.

    I understand cultural type laws.
    In Turkey its advised that women wear at least pants and regular T-shirts because of cultural norms but it is not a hard and fast law.

    Hate speech is a form of thought control.

    Slippery slope but balance is everything and generally we are doing an all right job imo.
    I support laws against hate speech.
    In Kanuckistan they proved these laws... not could be... but are abused.
    It has Stalinist implications; sending people and their views underground for fear of saying the wrong thing.

    Free speech is powerful because it identifies both brilliance and idiocy.
    People should not be incarcerated because they said something some people find offensive.

    How is it control?

    Don't incite racial or religious violence
    It's very simple

    Its attempting to control how people think by punishing them for their words.

    To fill what the law describes as hate speech you don't have to do those things.

    You just have to say something negative about a race. It may not be true but that is all David Duke did.

    He said some things that are negative and disparaging about Jews but he didn't incite violence.

    One question... would calling someone a N*gg*r in front of thousands count as an offense?

    yes or no?

    I'm not sure, i don't think so. I'll check if you want

    The law does not need to step in.
    The thousands of people will sort it out.

    Oh no, i was talking about UK. I'm not sure about hate speech in all european countries.

    In the case of Duke, denying the Holocaust is a crime in that European country.
