free speach means

if a muslim wants to proclaim the jehad he may do so

if a satanist wants to proclaim the torture of the world, he may do so*

if a catholic wants to say the pope rules its his right

if a 6 year old girl wants to proclaim her love to her teddybear she may do so

free speach means we are allowed to say what we think

I hope you also realize that with that freedom comes consequences? Everything has a cost whether you realize it or not.

Not necessarily true. Free speech is restricted. In certain circumstances, you may not express yourself without consequences. A couple of weeks ago, a man in the northeast repeated something he had heard or read, and was arrested. I believe that a total of 9 people were arrested for the same thing. It was something about a quote he either heard or read in reference to "putting wings on pigs". That got him arrested when it was discovered online. So, free speech is very much restricted and only allowed if something doesn't irritate another person or group.

Your freedom ends where it impinges on mine. For instance, you cannot communicate a viable threat to me. If someone implies they are going to kill some police (put wings on pigs), that is communicating a threat.

But midget porn? Knock yourself out.

OP hauke needs to stay in school.
OP hauke needs to take a remedial course in spelling and syntax.
OP hauke needs to learn that with "free speech", there comes responsibility.

Alexis de Tocqueville wrote the best piece on freedom of speech:

If anyone could point out an intermediate and yet a tenable position between the complete independence and the entire servitude of opinion, I should perhaps be inclined to adopt it, but the difficulty is to discover this intermediate position. Intending to correct the licentiousness of the press and to restore the use of orderly language, you first try the offender by a jury; but if the jury acquits him, the opinion which was that of a single individual becomes the opinion of the whole country. Too much and too little has therefore been done; go farther, then. You bring the delinquent before permanent magistrates; but even here the cause must be heard before it can be decided; and the very principles which no book would have ventured to avow are blazoned forth in the pleadings, and what was obscurely hinted at in a single composition is thus repeated in a multitude of other publications. The language is only the expression and, if I may so speak, the body of the thought, but it is not the thought itself. Tribunals may condemn the body, but the sense, the spirit of the work is too subtle for their authority. Too much has still been done to recede, too little to attain your end; you must go still farther. Establish a censorship of the press. But the tongue of the public speaker will still make itself heard, and your purpose is not yet accomplished; you have only increased the mischief. Thought is not, like physical strength, dependent upon the number of its agents; nor can authors be counted like the troops that compose an army. On the contrary, the authority of a principle is often increased by the small number of men by whom it is expressed. The words of one strong-minded man addressed to the passions of a listening assembly have more power than the vociferations of a thousand orators; and if it be allowed to speak freely in any one public place, the consequence is the same as if free speaking was allowed in every village. The liberty of speech must therefore be destroyed as well as the liberty of the press. And now you have succeeded, everybody is reduced to silence. But your object was to repress the abuses of liberty, and you are brought to the feet of a despot. You have been led from the extreme of independence to the extreme of servitude without finding a single tenable position on the way at which you could stop.

Free speech allows him to threaten you or the police, but he must suffer the consequences by using his free speech in that manner. So, to be quite honest, free speech is a double edged sword.

Baloney. You can irritate another person or group all you like all the live long day in America. Just ask Rush Limbaugh.

You cannot threaten them.

I like bringing up midget porn whenever someone says, "People don't NEED a 30-round magazine for their gun."

Yeah? Well, people don't NEED midget porn, either.

Freedom isn't about NEED.

I understand the restriction to threats. I wasn't talking about threats.

If you start thinking about other actions and carry them out someone may put an end to your freedom to breath.
