I'm surprised the klan isn't bigger in cape. There are a lot of red neck hillbillies around here. I figure that would be right up their ally!

Gosh, I guess words will kill me. I am so afraid. Someone might put something on my car to make the space between my ears work, whether to agree or disagree.

So what most of you are saying is freedom of speech is ok as long as the person sending the message agrees with you?

Freedom of speech is a constitutional right but my car is my property. If I don't want to read a message of hate that was outdated the day it was started then that is MY right. If they want to hand out a flier on the corner of the street then no one can stop them but it would be my choice of whether or not to take it. Freedom of speech allows someone to say or write what they want but it does not allow them to touch my property and shove their hate filled ideas in my face.

As long as the primary focus of the group is not to kill, maim, or harm people of ethnic groups, skin colors, and religions, and they are not pushing the fake doctrine of White Supremacy, then let people put fliers on cars.

How many here think the KKK fits my definition of a decent group of people who accept all of the SUPREME BEINGS children as equals?:-)

Say it isn't so Joe, say it isn't so :(

Sometimes I find it sad that hell is a fictional place because it would be a suiting place for sheet heads to spend eternity don't you think?

Freedom is, is freedom does. A flier to a church revival or the latest pizza special is just as offensive to me-- I don't like fliers on my car. But, and this is a argumentative but, noone seems to cry 'foul' when it's an ethnic promotion. To do so would be "raaaaacist" and a violation of the same freedom of speech. Just sayin...

It kind of sounds like the KKK did it to see if they would be stopped and have their rights taken away. They were, and can now sue for probably a ridiculous amount of money.

So according to your sick and twisted logic, a flier to a church revival, or a pizza flier is just as EVIL and dangerous as a flier promoting ethnic hatred against nonwhite people? You need immediate hospitalization. You are critically mentally ill my fiend!
