This will be a good example.

That member will have a right to say whatever he wants.

I'll just quit reading his posts!



I miss the good ole days when ATS had the ignore button

What? That he's weird? He pretty much knows he's the head freakazoid around here.

Do you get what he is trying to do though?

Um.. I'm pretty sure it had absolutely nothing to do with conservitives. I think that's where your disconnect comes from and probably why you keep debating for what seems like for the hell of it.

EXACTLY the secret is...DON'T GO ,and ignore them.
Interest will be the judge,like the first kid to wear a mohawk in Jr High...the group will choose.
THAT'S life and nothing will ever change that fact.

I realize that. There are a disturbing number of anti-American speakers who are also, ironically, American citizens.

Why do you ignore the part where I said he made the other threads accusing us of silencing the conservative voices?

Not that kind of support and yes I see what he is trying to do.
He's doing this to separate us.

So let me get this straight ... it's once again the Democrat calling for censorship?

Outstanding!

Let her speak. It's not like when I was assigned Jessie Jackson's speech at my university.

Not sure how you came to that conclusion. The Cowpoke has been pretty consistent in his support for free speech in my opinion. This tool should be able to speak just like anyone else.

It's a cognitive dissonance. Conservatives are against Sharia law and yet they bitch about them not giving her a voice.

Yeah. Everyone has the right to free speech here in America. If you would look at his post history he has been trying to inflame this issue.

Sorry, couldn't pass this up. If anything, the OP's stance is VERY consistent. There is no conspiracy of 'separating us' going on. Step back and think......The OP has an issue with censorship, and supports free speech. Most of what has been censored has been pro-Trump and pro-American. He was against that. Now, there is a pro-Sharia law person who is being censored. He is against that as well.

I can't make this any clearer. Censorship in this country, as a rule, is bad, mmmkay?

I disagree. While there are obviously more examples of college campus weenies getting their panties in a twist his support for Sharia Chick demonstrates consistency.

I heard the story on my drive home from work and I thought, "What a great story to show the other aspect of free speech!"

I didn't realize until putting the thread together that the one wanting her silenced was a democrat.

I found this rather ironic.


“I mean, it’s just nuts. It makes no sense. It’s crazy to have this woman be the person who’s going to speak to the students,” Hikind said.


Does this individual believe that whatever the speaker may say will hold some sway? Perhaps they also think that those minds can not think for themselves.

IMO this statement highlights what exactly is wrong with the struggle on freedom of speech. In their minds, they think they should be the arbiter on who hears what because of how the listener might interpret the words.

For example, "let me filter what you hear!" While the motives may be subjectively right, it is inherently WRONG! Coddling and filtering needs to stop. Free speech is critical in that and if our society intends on advancing at all.

I know, yet again, another thread on this. 

If it bores you, I understand. 

If we don't stand for all speech, then we are screwed.

He admitted that he has done this many times. What's the point?
Who actually is against free speech?
What is the point of keeping pushing the narrative?
