It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
There's no home for hate in #Brooklyn, full stop. We can't let a toxic national political climate empower local lunatics and sympathizers of white supremacy. We will spread love and advance safety for ALL, at Union Temple and across our borough.
James Polite, 26, wrote the hateful messages, which included “Jews better be ready” and “Hitler,” in black marker on the walls inside the Union Temple of Brooklyn in Prospect Heights on Thursday, cops said. Another epithet called for the death of Jews and used a hateful historic comparison to vermin. The NYPD released a surveillance image Friday of the suspect in the stairwell of the building, which is on Eastern Parkway, near the Grand Army Plaza. Late Friday night, the NYPD said Polite, of Brooklyn, had been arrested and charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime and making graffiti.
Just look at the jobs lost, lives ruined simply because people were exercising their rights to free expression.
And before anyone gets on here to start bleating about consequences of free speech, there USED to be a time when the ideal was not only freedom of speech, but freedom after speech as well.

Incredibly stupid, and using the 1st to stifle the 2nd.
social media is a place where people use hyperbole and ridiculousness for LULZ. What a stupid idea this is.
