I'm all for free speech. But there is a fine line between expressing ideas and opinions and inciting violence. Few care for that, particularly when it is their life or property at risk.
Why can't you understand this? Or, why can't you let it go?
which is completely against what is being discussed here. No one is saying that violence cannot be met with violence. We are saying that speech should never be confronted with violence. But you keep saying that's only OK to a point... where is that point?
Not to prevent free speech - that isn't worth it
This has nothing to do with speakers or speech (as I've said several times)
I'm a pacifist. Violence is never acceptable - and yet. If society breaks down and we begin to do the unthinkable - and commit heinous crimes against the other (whoever that other might be) what recourse is left us?
