    Do you care if some American video game nerd can beat some Japanese nerd in some sort of video game contest and get a trophy or medal for it, do you care if some American can blow a bugger out of his nose further than some German and get a trophy or medal for it? I could care less if some American in a globalist event can throw a shot put further than someone else or throw a javelin very far.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    What if the government declared themselves and the military edfa protected a class just like the gays and considered speech against them to violate hate speech laws?

There's aleady a double standard in this country. Why make it worse?
    But what if that person was a teacher, and he/she was teaching stuff like the Holocaust didn't exist. How would you deal with this.
    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.

    I brought it up because there was a case like that here in Canada years ago. I can't remember the details as it happened years ago, but he was a University professor teaching his students that the Holocaust was a lie.

    What happened to him? Did he lose his tenure, or was it protected?

    I just looked it up:

    James Keegstra
    For more details on this topic, see R. v. Keegstra.
    In 1984, James Keegstra, a Canadian high-school teacher, was charged with denying the Holocaust and making antisemitic claims in his classroom as part of the course material. Keegstra and his lawyer, Doug Christie, argued that the section of the Criminal Code of Canada (now section 319{2}), is an infringement of the Charter of Rights (section 9{b}). The case was appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada, where it was decided that the law he was convicted under did infringe on his freedom of expression, but it was a justified infringement. Keegstra was convicted, and fired from his job.[61]

    More details here:

    Of course they have free speech, however it's not absolute, just as it is not here. Why is our definition the one that everyone should use? Every country decides that for themselves. Cananda and the UK have hate speech laws, we don't.


    Interesting case though, and I wonder what the Charter Challenge result will be.


    But, to the OP. The guy did NOT say homosexuality is a sin and end up in jail. He did a whoooooollllleee lot more than that.

    btw, did he end up in jail? I thought the article said they didn't use the criminal law.
