    Why do I have to repeat this? Freedom of expression is not limited to ideas and expression we like. It expressly protects expression we do not like.

    I've mentioned this before. Back when the KKK and Nazis wanted to march in Skokie, I supported the ACLU lawsuit to allow this.

    Why? Because I want them out in the open, to know they still exist and have some support. To SEE them and know who I need to watch out for and to keep me motivated against allowing them any real successes in our nation.

    If you muzzle them, they simply go underground, but it doesn't stop them from growing or acting.

    Meanwhile, if you stop them by claiming they are too "evil" to be protected by the First Amendment, you create an insidious exception. Then where does it stop? Perhaps YOUR group declared too "offensive" to be "tolerated?"
    I don't think anyone was saying they couldn't protest. I believe we are doing what you advocate: naming and shaming their abhorrent behavior.

    Nazis???

    Puleeze!!!


    Those characters are just a pathetic group of losers who have nothing else to do.


    Glad to read that they were ignored, which was the correct response.

    What we need is a national holiday to remember ALL massacres throughout history, which (among others) would include the Holocaust, the Rape of Nanking, the Rwanda genocide, the Cambodia genocide, etc.

    Do you need to find Billy Roper's blog yourself, to believe it? Given your reaction to the events, I'm mildly surprised you haven't read it yet...
    Because some guy that no one ever heard of is the only or even the primary person supporting the existence of the scholarship?

    It's amazing the lengths people will go to to defend CNN's dishonesty.

    Anyone who takes the position "well, maybe, 'The Holocaust' did NOT happen" (and does so without explaining where the 15,000,000(ish) people that were no longer walking around Europe at the end of WWII had gone to) offers - at BEST - ignorant support for the Nazis and their unsuccessful attempt at genocide.
    It's fashionable in some circles to deny that the Roman Empire systematically persecuted Christians. There is no merit to that revisionist theory either. If it were alleged that a deceased professor had once assigned graduate students reading material that presented such a narrative, would you call for scholarships named after him to be abolished?

    Current US law already bars entry of Nazis.

    You can demonize the Nazis, too.

    I see. You know what makes them Nazis? They were flying Nazi flags.
