Your statement reminds me of the phrase, "It is better to remain silent, and thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

As you say, freedom of speech allows everyone the opportunity to prove themselves the fool.

But you could eject them from your country without killing them.

You cannot just do nothing about it and hope they go away.

It’s a good thing everyone knows liberals are the real fascists and would never vote for someone based solely on the fact that they’re not a democrat.

Right?


Right?

So we shouldn't kick people out of the country who came here illegally, but if they don't think right, then they get the boot.

Unfortunately the bill of rights also protects these knuckleheads. We cannot selectively enforce the Constitution. We cannot say everyone has freedom of speech, except you anti-semite knuckleheads. They are free to rant out their idiotic opinions just as the rest of us are free to ignore and/or ridicule them for their idiocy.

The very issue one has with individuals such as Patrick Little, is not with what they say, but what they aim to do. Anyone seeking the expulsion of people from a nation based on their ethnic or religious background, is seeking to indulge in politics based on a phobic fantasy, and must be stopped .


Maybe its not based on their ethnicity or religious beliefs but rather what they do.
Banking, the media, major industry etc etc all have a rather large over representation of Jews in decision making and policy setting positions, the Jewish lobby group is from what I hear one of the most if not flat out THE most influential lobby group there is. Think about all of that for a second.

As an Aussie I know I would resent foreign nationals having that much influence within my country I would question where their allegiances lay.

I appreciate you think differently, Ive seen posts of yours about whats happening in England and you seem just fine with becoming a 2nd class citizen in your own country, that coupled with your quoted post makes me think your one of the Brits who probably support the instant arresting of people over facebook posts while meanwhile grooming gangs get away with their thing for 10 years.

Personally I think its people like YOU who need to be stopped

This is the difference between a free citizen and a subject. The rights and immunities of a citizen of the United States cannot be revoked without due process. Which means a crime needs to have been committed.

This is why we kicked the Brits out.

What protects the people from those knuckleheads? The law? What protects the people from laws the knuckleheads might end up writing? You know, I am sure the Germans had laws which prevented people acting out against the Nazi Party as well... ended well for them, as we all know. Oh, no... wait, it didn't did it?

Where are the facts for this?,seems I have lived in calif 65 yrs,who is this supposed candidate?,where did he come from,how come this is the 1st anyones heard of?get a freakin life


I'm with you, lived here my whole life and never heard of him. Year after year I've watched the liberals grind this state into the ground. Doesn't mean I'd EVER vote for a wingnut like him. That's some pretty pathetic liberal logic, but living here you get used to it.

In Europe, Britain in particular, they think it just fine to jail people for jokes and facebook posts that are unsavory.

Arguing for the rights of individuals is something TrueBrit can't understand.

Interestingly enough I just read another post on how everyone here despises the USA relation with Israel and why we are protecting them.

So it's okay to say you hate Israel and don't want to be their ally? But saying you want to be free from the jews is not the same?

No... Not everyone in Israel is Jewish; nor do the actions of the state represent the will of Jews worldwide. Pointing out this distinction should have been a no brainer, but here we are.

It isn't the Bill of Rights for the Nazi party.

Stop being obtuse. We're not giving up any rights because you're offended.

The rest of society protects themselves from these imbeciles by not voting for them. Failing that, there are checks and balances.

The only way their ideology could cause any real change would be through a constitutional amendment and if they could get 75% of the states to go along with their idiocracy, we would already be lost anyway.

Being a bigoted, racist, homophobic, neo-nazi isn't a crime in the US. Of course, if you are those things, a vast majority of society will shun and ridicule you for being a moron. Being a moron and espousing idiotic views doesn't get you throw in prison or your citizenship revoked.

You made several points there, and I want to address them all, one by one.



Maybe its not based on their ethnicity or religious beliefs but rather what they do.

Think about all of that for a second.


First of all, you need to make a clear distinction between whether you are talking about the Jewish in general, or the Israel Lobby. The Israel Lobby is powerful as hell and always has been. But there are plenty of Jewish folks, who oppose Israeli policy on Gaza and settlement building, on the way their military responds to even the mere presence of a protest, and so on. Israel and Jews are not the same thing. One is a nation state run by a mob of total right wing pricks, the other is a religious belief and an ethnicity. They are not alike unto one another, regardless of any argument or protestation to the contrary.



I appreciate you think differently, Ive seen posts of yours about whats happening in England and you seem just fine with becoming a 2nd class citizen in your own country


In order to be fine with a thing, I would have to believe it was happening, which would insist that it actually was happening, since, aside from in religious terms, I only believe what I can either observe or prove by scientific means. It is simply not the case that I am BECOMING a second class citizen, because I was BORN that way. That is, I was born not a member of the landed gentry, not a member of the top ten percent as regards to wealth. The laws which apply to me apply to all persons within my social and financial status group, but not to those who write the law,, so it would seem, nor to anyone who happens to be able to afford good representation. You can get away with ANYTHING in this country, as long as you have enough money behind you. In THAT respect, and that respect alone, I am a second class citizen.

However, if I get your foul meaning, you are absolutely wrong that I occupy a second class position with respect to my friends from Poland, India, Ireland, the many parts of Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere. I have more in common with them, from a financial and societal status point of view, than I do with any of the people who have attained a measure of power in this country. These people, from all over the world, are family to me, because we were all harmed by the same forces, and we will only overcome them by working together.



coupled with your quoted post makes me think your one of the Brits who probably support the instant arresting of people over facebook posts while meanwhile grooming gangs get away with their thing for 10 years.


I support the instant arrest of anyone who makes a credible threat to life over Facebook, or any other wired service for that matter. That does not mean that I somehow support grooming gangs. Its not one or the other. I want my country fascist and racist free, AND I want those who harm children put in a box from which they cannot escape as well, they are not mutually exclusive positions!

Wakey wakey fella. Life is complicated, not simple, and just because you think one thing, does not automatically mean you support another. Nuance mate, its important.

Its not offense I am concerned about. I would have terrorised all the London nightclubs for having Speed Garage acts playing in the 90s if I was remotely concerned about being offended, because that crap being called music is HIGHLY offensive.

My concerns have to do with lives being lost because America is always late to fight fascism. Your lot were very late to WW2, and I am concerned that people I care about, in your country, will suffer because your lot will not fight fascism, but indulge in it. My concern is that one day the rest of the world will have to destroy your nation to prevent its intolerance being spread elsewhere. I am not offended, I am worried for and by your country, that is all.

Don't worry, there are more guns per person in America than there are forks. No one in their right mind would go after a fully loaded American, and if they did, chances are, they wouldn't live long.

Even if that were the case, it doesn't change the fact that he's polling better than every other Republican. Just like in Illinois the main problem isn't that a Nazi is running for office. It's that purple are actually voting for them.

"Late" is a relative term.

America was historically averse to engaging in European conflicts. Mostly because back then Europe couldn't keep itself from mass murdering each other.

We weren't late, we just didn't want to show up.

If Hitler didn't try to make Mexico invade the US and if Japan had not attacked Pearl Harbor, you would be speaking German right now.

It doesn't matter how concerned you are for us. We've managed just fine without needing to jail people for thought crime. You folks can keep that to yourselves.
