Re: freedom of speech

And if we (as a country) don't wake up and do something, we'll be reading about cases like this here, but for piss-ant things like saying "I hate paying high taxes".

He is the first man in Martinique found guilty under a 2001 French law that declared slavery a crime against humanity.
Never heard of a law like that.

As much as I despise racism, bigotry and prejudice.......I'm glad we don't have anything similar that would make it a crime just to talk about it.



Quote:
Despointes, one of the beke elite, also criticized mixed-race marriages during the interview aired in late January 2009 and said he wanted to "preserve his race."
Sounds like a great guy.



Quote:
"Historians exaggerated the problems a bit. They talk above all about the bad aspects of slavery," he said in the documentary. "But there were good aspects, too ... There were colonizers who were very humane with their slaves."


If there really were a Heaven, Hell and God.........I wish it would come down here and send people like this to where they belong.

And it ain't up.


.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Re: freedom of speech

big woo..
there's no freedom of speech here, either.

If you have an unpopular idea; right, wrong or otherwise, you're branded a hater, racist, fascist, liberal, right wing religious zealot, whatever.
Then the media gets a hold of it and pummels you into submission.

"Branded" and "prosecuted" are totally different.

I've been branded a lot of things from folks around here.

Thank goodness I can't get put in jail for it.

The funny thing is, that there are some who scream about freedom........... that would probably get a kick out of it if I were.

Only if I could have the key.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.

I think I'd be ok with it. I've carried a pocket knife since I could walk and only have a few small scars from it. Besides, I'd only have the key long enough to drive to the smelter.
