    Taking into consideration the liberal propensity for emotional knee-jerk reaction, I accept your apology liblady.
    that is what happened, you are correct. the cause is very much in dispute, however.

    Please, there are plenty on the right that don't like to hear things they disagree with.

    As long as their language doesn't include threats or calls for violence (depending on the laws in their area) they have every right to say whatever they want to say. A forum is (typically) a private enterprise, so the owners can choose what is and isn't allowed on their site. Since we're on a forum, I think the WS crowd should have the same freedom to act like assholes as long as we allow the anti-gay crowd to act like assholes, or the militant atheist crowd to act like assholes.

    Based on your posts, intolerance seems to be a policy of the far right. You seem to be jockeying for the title "Queen of Irony".

    I think that white supremacists should be heard as I think that one aspect of the internet is that it is an open platform for debate and an extension of free speech. While I hate what they have to say, I still think that they all viewpoints should be heard.
