    Your OP began with you posting in hysteria fashion about some forum closing and you freaking that those people were all going to come to this forum.

    The forum that has closed you seem to have an unusual familiarity with, to the point you knew it had closed when nobody else here did and also you posted how many members that forum has and/or had, again who else here is that familiar with that forum that they'd even know how many members it has and/or had.

    People then began to ask where does your definition of Hate Speech stop, who else do you want Censored etc, the slippery slope was mentioned.

    People were correct because you went from your OP and then expanded it in typical fashion to fit your Agenda:

    So in Lewdog's opinion you would like anyone silenced who also isn't on the LGBTQ Bandwagon.

    Sorry Lewdog little Fascists like you are not going to make people support and agree with for instance Transgenderism.

    Again you do not own this forum and you are not a moderator.

    There also is no reason I can see why this thread even now needs to continue.

    "Hatespeech" is a UN PC construct that is akin to Orwellian "Newspeak".

    The very idea of Hatespeech limits free speech because in essence, it's censorship.

    The Great Lucy has spoken.

    But screw that; Lewdog has a concern and I hope Lucy's right that those scumbags don't come here and I'll insult and pester them to the best of my ability if they do. This place is anything but an echo chamber, that's for sure.

    To be sure, some will come here and other forums, and the mods will be quite busy.

    However, the team here is really good, and I'm sure they'll handle it in a professional manner.

    IMO, this is the best forum on the internet right now.

    So many others caved to the Obama PC ideal that's it's not even funny.

    In other words, you can't really speak your mind there.

    As far as politics forums go:

    USMB! USMB! :rock:

    There are no hatespeech laws in the US, so you can GFY if you don't like it.

    Thank you OldLady darling.

    This is precisely what we do not want, this forum to turn into an Echo Chamber, the nice thing about this forum is that it's refreshing for a forum to invite ALL points of view, regardless of religion, politics etc.

    Somehow it works and that's without Hardcore Moderation, somehow the forum does not descend into 24/7 arguing and complete chaos, which that it doesn't is amazing and I think the reason for this is because a majority of members do support Free Speech and Free Thought, even when they tell someone to "STFU who cares what you think" :tongue:

    In many German forums, politics is a no-go. But its getting better.

    Wrong. Not what I said at all. You sure are good at tearing down unsupported arguments that people didn't say.

    You don't have to visit Stormfront to be familiar with it. All you have to do is be observant. I've heard plenty about it here on this forum and in the news.
