    Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com

    I didn't see this before and I haven't seen this on the board.

    - Glenn Beck, Glenn Beck Program (October 13)

    So Beck has already invoked Godwin's law for us. Question is, does he make a valid point or is this just over-the-top rhetoric?

    I'm going with over-the-top rhetoric. I feel this disrespects the holocaust survivors and the victims of the holocaust for him to invoke this in his petty little bullshit. He should apologize for making such comments.

    Bullshit.
    He makes a valid point. Suppression of free speech is suppression of free speech. It doesn't matter if it is conservative, liberal, Islamic, Nazi or any other. Once you start, it doesn't stop.
    There was an op-ed today in the WSJ about Yale's censoring a book on the Muhammad cartoons. The impressive thing was how little thought the faculty gave to the idea.
    It has nothing to do with Godwin. Get over it.

    You have to prove that there is suppression of free speech in the first place. The fact that Glenn Beck can make such comments is proof that there is free speech.

    Besides, you need to get off your Islam hate. Also, the whole context of that statement goes far beyond just freedom of speech. Hitler wasn't just bringing these people to detention centers where they couldn't speak, he was killing them.

    Add Holocaust denial to Beck's outlandishness.

    My last full weekend here. Besides, my weekend ritual is starting in an half hour and I was studying earlier. Though I did just clean my room. :lol:

    Aha. Another twenty something know it all.
    I'm sorry. I actually took you seriously there. Now that I know this I'll know I can dismiss any thoughts your pimply little ass comes up with.
    Now get your hands off your keyboard and back into the books.

    I know more at 18 than you have ever and will ever know. Age has nothing to do with knowledge. Knowledge, something by the way that you are clearly lacking.

    I think most people would just laugh at such an ignorant statement from your mouth.

    Your argument fails in this thread and your other argument in the other thread fails. Go back to the drawing board. Besides, how much "older and wiser" are you than me? :rofl:

    Besides, if someone who is older then you made the same argument, by your standards, they would be right.
