    BTW, the same goes the other way around too. It is ****ing ridiculous that I should have to revere someone else's idol.
    I don't know anyone who is advocating for that but you. There is no reason a non-Muslim who wants to point out the hypocrisy of radical Islam shouldn't be allowed to depict Muhammad.

    Advocating what exactly? That other people have the right to restrict misuse of freedom of speech? Sorry my statement had nothing to do with religion, not with Mohammed, not with Islam (radical or otherwise), not with christianity or any other faith.

    Do you French and Americans want to start insulting Aboriginals do you? If you have such freedom to be obnoxious then what is all the fuss over the Redskins logo?

    Is attacking African Americans with media an act of freedom and artistic expression? This is what the world has come to with USA leading and France as "the capital of the world" is it? You French and Americans have the right to be offensive, obnoxious and provocative and this is freedom is it? Well not in Australia. Us Aussies disagree with your uncivilized idea of freedom.

    You must really hate freedom of speech if you want it to be illegal to draw a caricature of a dead person. You're free to your own authoritarian opinion but let's please not act like any majority of civilized countries have such anti-free speech laws.

    No it isn't. You can't put swear words on kids programming. Kids can't go to R-Rated movies. You ever catch an HBO show outside of HBO? It's completely washed free of swears or any language which may be seen as too full of curse words. Ever seen modern music on TV? Between the changed words and the blank spaces, it's hard to make up just what a lot of these songs are saying. We have free speech zones because the government can determine where and when you can assemble. We have a ton of restrictions on "free speech". So no, "all speech is" not "free". Not in America anyways.

    It isn't even free in France. That's why when all of the right wing hacks started complaining that Obama didn't show up next to all of those world leaders to "support" free speech I just laughed. Egypt? France? England? THOSE are the countries we should unite with in our defence of free speech? It's almost like people don't know the level of censorship that exists in these countries. Jordan? Lmao. Turkey? Please. They're hypocrites. All of them.

    Watching you tap dance around the truth is something to see. You know what he was saying, and trying to cling to the exceptions proves the rule. Quick! Look over there!

    That's not entirely true. Again I'll reference the ice bucket challenge. Tell the people with ALS that facebook posts are meaningless.

    Social media is rather huge. But I wasn't suggesting that social media be the ONLY source for the protest. Every avenue of the internet could be used, INCLUDING facebook, instagram.....but also printed media and television and everything with a graphic display.

    I'm imagining that anywhere somebody turned they would be exposed to a picture (doesn't have to be outwardly hostile) of muhammed. TV, internet, newspaper, magazine, flyer, billboard, advertisement.....

    For many private individuals all they could possibly do to "join the process" might be to post something on facebook. So be it.

    Maybe everybody who's a member of a forum on the internet uses a muhammed picture for their avatar.

    Solidarity among multiple billions. Collectively and simultaneously. Could be very powerful.

    Lmao, the above drive by post made me chuckle. Mostly because you clearly don't understand the larger point or you really believe the rhetoric about freedom of speech. In either case, . Carry on, I don't really expect you to do more than repeat catch phrases somehow related to "dancing".

    What do you have against freedom of speech? Is it because you are a leftist?

    Fallacious arguments so soon? At least give yourself 5 posts before your anemic understanding of a discussion becomes obvious.

    Yup, you hate free speech, even speech at the risk of physical harm. A violation of the Wests ideals. The Founders knew there'd be people like you.
