105. If your imaginary and straw-man board
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 09:40 PM by manic expression
wants to ban socialism, then they would have done so regardless of me or what I encourage. Don't be so naive as to think that a government which wants to limit the left will need MY help to do so. Don't be so ignorant as to think that the US government hasn't done so already.

Anyway, your "board" is simply an insipid example, since all it would need is a bill that condemns and bars in some way expressions of gross intolerance and bigoted hatred.

No, racist groups should not be able to flaunt their filth. When you let the worst of the worst act like they want to, you risk letting the country become the worst of the worst as well. Don't. Stop those who are both a mockery of society and a vehicle for wrongdoing.

You would be allowed to speak against bigotry all you like. Why the hell wouldn't you? Strawmen, strawmen, everywhere, but not an argument to see?

Bottom line, you allow racists and bigots to organize and spread their wrong ideas, I oppose them and want to stop them.
