Yeah, I know all that.

Not talkin' free speech. I'm Talkin' "stupid".


"Stupid" is still covered though.

We'll never get rid of "stupid".

If we did, I'd never be able to post anymore.


It's not stupid it's the way amaricans have done things since the founding of the country even Ben Franklin used satire to show his disapproval of King george.Thus is just another form of protest.

I'm really sick of this PC crap. Oh we don't want to offend this group or that group so we should ignore the constitution and our beliefs. Wouldn't want to offend 1% of America who are Muslim or 2% who are gay so we put the PC bag on head and do nothing.

Perhaps these guys are tired of the PC bag on their head and they are making it clearly known. I think it's the wrong way to deal with their frustration but they are doing something unlike the most of us who do nothing cept start thread about it.

I won't take away anyone's right to label it "stupid".

The only problem I have, is that if we start denying free speech because it is "stupid".

There are plenty here that would use that to silence me in a heartbeat!

There's no call to change laws or bring the power of the State down on the tops of the heads of these bigoted morons. We have a right to call out hatred if we want to. In my opinion these assholes and anyone supporting their cause is anti-American. Admonishing the bikers is not attacking the 1st Amendment.

If you want the hatred to stop, it needs to start stopping with you. the bikers are not as much bigoted as they are challenging using political satire.

Excuse me? What the hell are you talking about? You enjoy coming into a thread like gangbusters, is that it? Well you get a gold star for that, only in this case I wouldn't embrace it if I were you. You really should calm down.



There is an old phrase, "what goes around comes around"

The Muslim world has been drawing racist caricatures of Jews and Christians for a very long time, now it's time for them to join the modern world, stop being so Middle Ages and accept the fact that they can't go on forever with their racism against the Jews. Simple.


Whether you realize it or not, what you are advocating in this remark is not that "the Muslim world" join"modern times", but rather that we as Americans, join them in being "middle ages". Do you not see that? Sadly, I suspect you don't.

Who said anything about Jews? Did I miss that in the OP?


If Muslims and everyone else is permitted to draw and post pictures of Jesus in so many negative ways and we are not permitted to speak or act against it, what makes them special enough to not have it happen to their Mohammed?


Yes, as you have shown, we have as much liberty to be stupid and hate-filled as they do. It's a matter of whether we have more dignity, and more intelligence to choose not to.


What goes around comes around. People are tired of pandering to their neurosis and neurotic sensitivities.


Yes I think that was your opening comment. Karma and all that. Frankly, I don't believe in Karma. I'm more of a "cause and effect" person. So, you administer the Karma, right?

your reply to me was quite rude. The thread has gone surprisingly smoothly until.......... recently.

Good day.

This is so completely NOT OK!

There are going to be little children attending prayers with their parents at this thing tonight. The people on that mosque should be left ALONE.

This is so NOT acceptable.

Maybe you shouldn't ignore the constitution and realize those people have rights in this nation also.



Perhaps these guys are tired of the PC bag on their head and they are making it clearly known.

Or perhaps they have been brainwashed like many in the states.



I think it's the wrong way to deal with their frustration but they are doing something unlike the most of us who do nothing cept start thread about it.

So insulting a whole religion is the way to show their frustration?

No I don't think their intentions are noble even in the slightest... not even misguided. Their intentions are hateful and there's really not a way to pretty it up.

And create One of these, and throw a bible in the toilet, and call it art!

I guess freedom of speech is just one of them part time thingies.

The folks at that place of worship are minding their own business and should not be treated like this. This is SHAMEFUL.

Nope. Then there would be one less person to make me laugh every day. You are a funny bunny, even if redundant as hell. At times. About free speech. And some other things.

Your opinion political satire has been a method employed in protests as American heritage and isn't going to stop anytime. Calling people racist and bigoted who participate in such things is in fact feeding the flames of hatred period

I have said this prolly a hundred times on this site.

Religion isn't a race. It's a choice.

But don't you know PEOPLE don't matter anymore? It's all about politics and "getting them before they get us", and other inane ideas.

Does that go for all protests or just the one you don't agree with?

I have to be redundant as hell.

I will always voice my concerns about freedoms.

Freedoms lost, freedoms denied.

Because there are those that will take advantage, and the second we (any of us) allow that, then we all lose.
