    Re: Anti-Olympic signs could mean jail: rights group


    I'm not going to bother addressing the second article because it's a piece of crap. But the first one is legit. From the article:

    Of course, all Canadians are guaranteed the right to freedom of expression by Section 2 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association, another intervener in the case, will be arguing that Alberta's law is unconstitutional because it unjustifiably violates this Charter guarantee.

    Voila.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    That's what happens when political correctness runs amuck.

    It's no-ones desire to curtail rights. Its that the people who often cite these rights after saying something are generally saying something that is either mad or a direct threat to the representative state. The right to speech is a human right, there is no right to be mad or incite false hatred against groups of people.

    Free speech on trial in preacher's appeal

    having expressed in fire-and-brimstone language his opposition to what he considered homosexual "brainwashing" in school curricula.
    Thats is mad, and a threat to the people and state. It is a threat because it is a bold faced lie, and a danger if others begin to believe in it. It implies that there is a homosexual conspiracy that has permeated the government down to the level of public schools.

    I could start a conspiracy that Jews are responsible for the economic downturn because of presence in the government, and prestigious financial bodies.

    ?HATE CRIMES? LAWS USED AGAINST CHRISTIANS IN CANADA | Persecution | Way of Life Literature

    Many Americans have a warm, fuzzy view of Canada, and have no idea that a totalitarian nation is taking shape, instigated by gay activists and Muslim pressure groups in the name of ‘tolerance.’ They do not know because America’s mainstream media are refusing to cover it
    This is no better than an anti-semetic plot and it must be stopped.

    have a nice day.

    If you wanna know my real opinion, Im actually a minority here to take away the rights of white males.

    I don't disagree with the last sentence, but the problem is: who gets to say what is, or isn't inciting false hatred?

    Well, in this country, it's been legal to say anything you please, no matter how ugly, or trashy it is.

    There are downsides to everything. The downside to freedom, is that some people can say almost anything they want, no matter how stupid it is.
