Quaint...
But...
...Well... Pardon me, that won't be happening.


Not from my end anyways...

If you want to die for your racist outbursts...
Or your xenophobia, homophobia, or any type of incessant hatred... You crack on, pal...
That's your decision, good luck fighting the good fight, hehe...

But no, don't expect me and my sword/gun to drop a single persons blood to defend you while you do so...
You do so at your own risk.

Capiche.
Comprende.
Overstand me, sir/madam...



Aside from a couple of demographics, you're are the lowest common denominator of the low...

You are, politely putting it, scumbags.

You don't deserve good people to put their life and limb at risk for your "right" to be an arsehole of the highest calibre...


Differing opinions are welcome, and ironically I'll defend your right to a different opinion to the death...
Just not those who cross the line between human, and divider...

Quite a conundrum to say the least.
But not cryptic enough to confuse.


Good day.

Glad to see you didn't disappoint.

Racism and homophobia are politically correct nowadays lol

That's precisely my point and it must have flown over your head.

Speech that has no resistance has no need to be defended.

Therefore it stands to reason that only speech that might not be popular or might be nasty, would fall under this.

I still stand by those principles, I despise racists and bigots and hateful people.

But the minute one persons right to express themselves is stifled , it is only a matter of time before others are as well.

People like that shackles themselves and braid their own ropes to hang themselves.

I'd prefer to defend what's worth defending.
Racism isn't and never will be one of those things.

There are people out there that call for the age of consent to be lowered to the age of a child...
I wouldn't die for their right to ask for such either.

On the plus side I don't want no-one to die for my rights either...
That's my job.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

First they came for the racists and nobody gave a toss...

Then they came for the homophobes and nobody gave a toss...

Then they came for the paedos and nobody gave a toss...

Then everybody else lived happily ever after.

Predictable projection of ideology.
I never once said that.

Put the victim card down.

What are you saying, who is going to die over "racist outburts" and "xenophobia"?

Who is going to do the killing while you look the other way? Anyone you are aligned with?

Is this a threat?

What's interesting is that many would defend your right to say what you want. Regardless how they feel about your ideology.

Victim card... Some of you people really enjoy using that term in several posts here.
Can't think of anything else to say?

The thread title is an often quoted (but not actually a) Voltaire quote designed to give off the impression of valour and honour and bleeding for ones enemies...
I've often seen it quoted or paraphrased and it's a political ideology I disagree with.

No, there will be no killing or threats. That I know of.

But if there is, oh well.

Charlie, there comes a time in all our lives when we absolutely stop trying to understand and sympathize with and make internal allowance for the positions of other people PARTICULARLY when we have examined the facts and come to our own conclusions. I think you may have had that epipany epiphany or you're getting really close to it. Great isn't it? LOL.

Besides the "I'll die for your right to say it" schtick is by and large (though not always) pure blatant hypocrisy.

The folks who say it have usually spent 20 minutes telling you why you're wrong, anyway.

Stay strong brother.

And if I was a racist or homophobe or God forbid a paedo calling for a lower age of consent I'd be putting all my hopes and prayers on the disgruntled majority to look after me as well...

That's about as "entitled" as one can get, to hope others die for your abhorrence.

No, siree.

Unpopular speech is the only speech that needs protection.

You are right in line with some of the world's greatest despots who used just that reasoning to justify some of the greatest slaughters of human kind ever.
