    Free Speech and Nazi Doctrine

    Nazi doctrine calls for the extermination of Jews and other people deemed "lesser" by White Supremacists. IMO, such speech should not be legal in the US. Period.

    The speech should be allowed.

    Trying to draw a "bright line" on what can and cannot be said simply because it is either "offensive," or perceived as a inciting ("Hate Speech") defeats the whole purpose behind the right to free expression.

    IMO, successfully branding what can and cannot be expressed non-violently will only lead to more and more censorship until free speech is no more than a slogan with no actual liberty for anyone at all.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    How long will this Nazi kick you're on last?
    Me not responding means it's a waste of my time and/or I don't play stupid games. I read it, eye-rolled, and moved on.

    Nazis are easy to drown out. Somebody bring a PA system and have a dance party while you laugh at them.

    IMO, preaching racism and genocide goes beyond the intent of the First, which was to provide an open forum by which to criticize the government. It was not meant for idiots to promote ideas to subjugate or even annihilate nearly half the population.
