Just examples of people rebeling.



What I find amusing is loud farts in crowded elevators.

But to each his own I suppose.

It's all LOL's right up until people get their heads cut off or blown up because they don't like what someone drew.

The bottom line is the insecurity of a certain religion that is not christianity has in 2015.

They need to come out of the dark ages, and turn the other cheek.

Yes i find it funny, when American's don't recognize their history, and mock it and the freedoms that were given to them for which they have a platform to mock.

History ?

Thought we were talking about current events.

Wonder what ole King George thought of the political satire in the colonies.

What is funny is how for the most part Islam of 2015 is not one damn bit different than the days of King George.

I think it very well might go badly against the organizers, and here is why:

The WBC church was sued for picketing a funeral with its vial speech, it won cause it was not in view of the funeral party and their message as sick as it is, was more universal in nature. In this case, when it comes to this event it is quite the opposite, and that is that it would be infront of the mosque in full view of those worshiping in side of it, and with weapons on these people. They can claim in court that this is going to deliberately distress the individuals in the mosque and would put a substantial burden on their right to worship in that mosque.

In short they could sue the pants off of the organizers and ultimately win big time. If the event was say down the street at a local park, then the Mosque and the people inside of it would not have grounds to sue, but being right infront of a mosque, puts it in a whole other category.

The act, in this case, is offensive, and should be. This is not just provoking, but it is in bad taste. They do have the freedom of expression, but they can not abuse it and think the law is going to protect them.

I'm all for exercising your rights, especially for free speech. HOWEVER, I don't much think that THIS is what our forefathers had in mind when coming up with the Bill of Rights back in 1791...

They would've been disgusted by it, and I am too. It IS disrespectful, immature and just obnoxious IMHO.

The guy should use what brains he has and realize that the rally he's planned is either just going to pop off some serious violence, ensure that even more people and countries look at the USA like we're a bunch of uneducated assholes, or worse.

At any rate, it won't end well. That I do know. Jesus was all about the L-O-V-E. If this guy is really doing this because he is a Christian, and an American, he wouldn't go about things this way.

So, I'm guessing it's just because he can...

Just to bring a little perspective to this thread.

There was a anti-Islam protest at the Garland Civic Center weeks before the attack. The protesters showed up with signs and their voices.

Forward it a couple weeks and radical Islam shows up to protest a event with the sole thought of murder.



It might just be me. But I see a pretty big difference between the two forms of protest.

I honestly don't understand why so many non-Muslims are worried about this being disrespectful. It doesn't bother you, does it? I appreciate hearing your opinions about this, but it's up to Muslims to say what offends us. What kind of protest is effective without being provocative? What else should they do to engage their right to associate together and send a message about their beliefs on this issue? It's non-violent protest. If somebody protests non-violent protest violently that doesn't say "don't protest", it says protest more.

Maybe this was Trumps "foolproof" plan. Host the biggest Muhammad cartoon contest somewhere in Syria or Afghanistan. Then when Isis shows up drop the biggest non nuke we got, maybe a couple.

I knew I would figure his plan out what a genius.

There is quite a few posters on here throwing some nasty comments at other posters for there stance on this issue.
You are totally blind. This is EXACTLY what you are arguing against. What you have put is the dead opposite of what you say. Let me make it really clear. You have been allowed to put what you have put BECAUSE you have this freedom of speech.
If that were not the case you would be sought out and punished. YOU ARE EXERCISING THE VERY RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH.
And you don't get it do you.

It honestly leaves me speechless as to how to respond to a post which is filled with such overt bigotry, hatred, racism, and xenophobia such as this, and in addition to one who is so completely unaware of their own overly-inflated ego, presumptuousness and grandisoity they actually think they have something of value to share with others concerning this topic. Additionally, your post is off-topic.

You have completely trashed another ATS member, an Iranian Physician, who in every way represents his religion head and shoulders above how you do yours. I'm ashamed.

Now I am going to do something I have never done in my years on this board. I'm going to alert your post for bashing another member, and for violation of decent manners.

You post is reprehensible.

While we're proposing new limits to the 1st amendment, I'd like to throw out a few suggestions to keep the crazies pacified:
Ban discussion of sports teams
Ban discussion of politics
Ban discussion of relgion
Ban use of quality descriptors like 'best' or 'worst'
Ban use of the words 'I' and 'think' in the same sentence
Retroactively ban any word that offends anyone, ever

Maybe we should just take the easy way out and all convert to Islam?

I think everyone needs to take a few minutes and re-read their posts at times, especially on issues that draw passion from people.

With that being said, as sporadic poster, if what WarminIndy claimed about the other user supporting various atrocities of the Iranian regime are in fact found in that user's posts on ATS, then I would say WarminIndy is making a valid point.

If the other user never said any such thing on ATS, then I would agree with you wholeheartedly.

Either way, Warminindy is exercising free speech (although I understand this forum has its own rules regarding decorum etc. that everyone is aware of when joining). Regardless of how reprehensible you think his post is, I am assuming it does not make you want to violently attack him, am I right?

That, is the point of this thread and people defending this protest.

Sometimes the truth hurts and there are those so accustomed to living in our politically correct world nowadays, they have a hard time hearing it.
