    It reminded of when the Free Republic posted their enemy list that resulted in the death of Nick Berg. Somebody must have thought that a pretty neat idea, too.

    HERE IS THE ENEMY -- they have posted their names

    Interesting, Arizona's law makers get to share anti-Gay headlines with Uganda and Putin. Birds of feather.

Or so it seems to me. Anyway, perhaps schadenfreude is only a winger trait, if so, there must be a remnant of it in me from my younger days. I can assure you there are some individuals and groups that I would be gleefully dancing should I find that some group I was not in charge of or a part of decided to target with anything up to and including murder.
    I have to admit to seeing the right wing lose. However, I wouldn't enjoy seeing them be victims of violence.

    I've read the law. That is a lie. Cite the section of the law which imposes such a duty.

    Uganda Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    On 20 December 2013 the Uganda parliament passed an anti-homosexuality law with punishments up to life imprisonment. Not reporting gay people is also made a crime punishable with imprisonment.[37]

    I think his sarcasm was because this is Uganda we are talking about and not Norway.

    Do you think it could happen it here, Vance?


    It wasn't that long ago, that it did.

    Of course it's a bogus comparison. It's not even remotely in the same ballpark.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    That is a draft from 2009, here's the final version:

    Anti-Homosexuality Act 2014

    You'll note that Part III doesn't have a Section 14.
