That quote get's thrown around a lot if you question america's policies.
I find that it's hypocritical when (some) people use that phrase, they typically seem to be one of the "we have freedoms and you don't" preachers. It's bullcrap.
It's alright to think you have the most "freedom" in this world, but if so, you have to entitle other people to the same freedom you preach by letting them partake in freedom of speech. Such as letting other's make a debate, point, or reference without labelling them an "anti-american".
The term pretty much means "i refuse to accept you are trying to make a point i don't like, so i am silencing your opinion", anti-semitism is another example.
Great example of freedom preaching.

I think I can find a reasonably educated Mongolian who doesn't know Ohio even exists.
Also, there's really no use getting worked up over this thread. Unplug if you have to.

Wow,you must be American because you know nothing of Canada and Canadians. Without Canada, your country would be nothin. We stand beside you in all of your narrow minded ,short sited wars. Up here, you are laughed at and are the butt of so many jokes. Please, if your going to say we are worthless, maybe you should look at your own country. You elect people who are ultimately going to screw you, your banking system is the laughing stock of the world and your arrogance is unmatched. I live in a country where I earn an above average wage, don't have to worry about health care and my FREEDOMS haven't been taken away from me. Grow up and grow some son,your just another third world country headin for forth.edit on 25-3-2012 by Warlord5852 because: Cause I can
