    Re: Should White Supremacists be allowed to speak on forums/etc?

    I used to be of the opinion that even white supremacist speech should be allowed on forums on the internet, but I've changed my mind. The internet is a different animal. There aren't really very many white supremacists in real life, but when a place on the internet starts permitting hate speech they infest it like there is no tomorrow. Politicalforum.com decided to permit hate speech for all the high minded reasons about free speech and whatnot and look what happened to them. Like 60% of the posters there are white supremacists now and most the normal people had to leave because you couldn't have a discussion about anything without white supremacists spamming it to death with off topic hate speech. In my opinion, the quality of discussion on PF way back when was actually higher than it is here, but now it's just a sewer for white hate over there. Any forum that places no limits on white supremacist hate speech eventually just turns into a stormfront.

    To be clear, I fully support free speech and would strongly oppose the government forbidding racist speech or something. But a discussion forum is a private community. The people who run the site are well within their rights to keep the most disruptive, counter productive, elements out in order to preserve a higher quality of discussion.

    Unless they're violating the rules, they should be allowed freedom of speech. They should also be respected. White supremacists are entitled to an opinion just like everyone else. I've never understood why people can't have cordial and civilized discussions in spite of being diametrically opposed to another person's point of view.

    Sorry, they get none of my respect. The best I can do is to allow them to be. They start gathering around me and I'll fight them like I would a spread of small pox.

    So naturally I voted 'NO' they should not be allowed to post their inerrant beliefs on this forum. I figure there are already some white supremacists posting on this forum that keep this kind of belief to themselves. Good on them.

    The real question is, should a black supremest be allowed to be POTUS? " White mans greed leads to a world in need".

    Absolutely not. The President must be the President of the whole people, and a President who would elevate some Americans at the expense of others is a traitor.
