I don't like when people burn the American Flag, but I don't murder people over it.<quoted text>
The law has nothing to do with it.
Freedom of speech exists, yes, but one must excercise it with discretion.
Think of the blade falling the other way - how many Muslims burnt the American flag after 9/11? It is a statment they made, and they are free to make it.
Agreed. Disgusting as it may have been; it cannot justify violence.Just because they MAY make it, does not mean that they SHOULD. I find the film as disgusting as I found the flag burning after 9/11.
If caught, they would or should be punished.People must excercise common sense. If I am white, going to the black part of town and burning a Malcolm X/ Nelson Mandela poster will probably get me beaten up.
I strongly disagree with you, here. Feeling an emotions is normal, acting on it, in an unjustified/illegal way, is not.Yes, the boy in question has a RIGHT to air his views, even if it is supremacist BS. But we have to accept that our views may incite anger and in some cases, rage.
Bad example. Health laws surely are in place for that!Just because there is no law against flicking boogers in a restaurant, is no reason to start doing so.
I hate the KKK, but if I tried to take away their rights and succeed, I can be sure of one thing; One day, someone will take away my rights.
I would love to take away, or worse, the right of the westboro baptist church. My family has a long history of serving our country and those assholes and the wbc deserve to be __________ But I cannot. My service was to ensure that all of us are as free as possible. I cannot justify harming even the lowest scum for exercising their rights.
