    So much for free speech, not to mention that it won't get a the root of anti-Semitism. :rolleyes:

    Because, yeah, without Nazi symbols, there would be no anto-semititsm.

    It confuses me how Euros can even consider letting an international body make laws for their countries, which take away rights of free expression.

    EDIT: Though lest we forget, they have not been afraid to lose rights to other powers in the past. Perhaps its something in the water.

    How would freedom of expression not be violated? Either you can wear one, or you can't. I guess you would need special permission from the swastika committee for educational purposes or something, either way, still serious restrictions.

    Great! Make them in to a Persecuted sub-group, that always makes for more converts. This must be their goal or they would actually look to the past and see that crap like this has never worked.

    Right there with the headscarfs. There is no way to explain the European denial in what they are, what they think, and where they are headed.

    It's the same here. Restrict the rights of the majority, it's for a good cause.

    Well here we put up a fight. The logic of the idea gets me crazy, I may have to move to a blue state for treatment. No, it's ok, I live in a blue state, we have lots of shrinks! :)

    If the Eurolibs are looking for a quick, meaningless fix to deal with a truly clear and present danger in their midst, they ought to look into banning the hammer and sickle!

    People put up fights in Canada for the dumbests things. One women fought and won the right for all women in the province of Onatrio to go topless anytime, anywhere. Yeah me!
