    I passionently am against shouting down anyone with an opinion or view in public or on the net that you dont like.

    In public, if any racist group, like la raza, the kkk, black power, anyone want to have a rally. Let them, are we such thin skinned cry babies, that we throw out the constitution because we dont like them?

    Colleges, and public should be an exchange of ideas.

    If racist groups, who need protection the most from other hate filled thugs.
    want to protest, let them

    Dont act like an asshole, and then say, but those racist groups are assholes.
    that means you are a facist as well.

    One sides protests safely protected by police, same for the other

    Ideas are not dangerous, actions are.

    Grow up!

    Stop fucking demeaning people because you dont like their views, or ideas.

    If someone wants to hate me for being a ****, its their problem

    They have that right, lets stop being nazi's and saying, you cant say that, cant do that!.

    when we do that, we are worse then they are

    allow them the freedom, most of you want to protect so badly

    our constitution gaurantees it, so if you really care about the constitution

    you wont threaten, intimidate, try to silence, or harrass anyone, because you dont like their views, period!.

    jesus christ, grow a pair people, and quit being so thin skinned

    Would you still support the neo-nazi's if they showed up in your neighborhood to hold a rally to promote a holocost in America? In other words, do you think the 1st amendment protects ALL speech?

    Depends. If they are actively fomenting armed rebellion or murder, that speech is not protected. If they are just mouthing off about the holocaust then that could be protected.

    Of course there is no such thing as truly "free" speech.

    However, when every little group that comes along is allowed a forum to "stand up for their ethnic heritage, aberrant sexual behavior, or whatever EXCEPT whites, who are immediately labelled "racist" for doing so, there IS a problem.

    The only reasonable, IMO, response to that dilemma is that the majority has a history of oppression in this country. After the civil rights movement, a new social contract was accepted by most Americans that the minority will have more freedom of speech so as to close the gap between the power of a white majority and the minority. I'm probably wrong in thinking this, but it's the only conclusion I can come to at 830 after spending the last 2 days without sleep:confused:

    yes, absolutely. This very thing happened in my town this summer. the nazis were allowed to march and NO ONE was swayed. the first amendment is more important than trying to dictate whose opinion gets to be the line we can't cross.

    I share similar concerns. last night on glen beck, i found out the federal government is trying to silence government workers over talking about illegal immigration.

    The patriot act should be re-written, government whistle blowers should be protected not threated.

    I would allow nazi's or any other racist group like la raza , lulac, open borders nuts, or any political group to protest in my neighborhood.

    The only thing they cant do is commit an act of violence against a member of a member of the neighborhood, or take up arms, against the government, or threaten to murder anyone spefically.

    If they say, kill mayer jerry sanders. that is a terroristic threat.

    free speech doesnt mean you get to specifically threaten peoples lives.

    then the police responsibility is to protect both sides, the racist marchers, and and the counter protestors.

    Yes, the first amendment is more important then my personal feelings.

    ironically, it seems to be the violent reaction to the nazi message that is the greater potential for destruction.

    when the nazis marched thorugh my town this year there were no nazis arrested and many counter-protestors arrested.
