i agree 100%. so who gets to be the standard bearer? Is there a standard or is the only requirement that someone says they feel threatened? Beyond that, how do you prove an emotion in a court of law?

You don't have to prove emotion, that's a fool's errand, and frankly an impossible standard that we don't apply to other laws regarding language, intent is the standard.

You don't have to actually be scared if someone tells you they are going to shoot you in the head. You're not exempt from punishment if you scream fire in a crowded movie theatre and everyone isn't scared. Perjury is still perjury even if you profess that you're telling a joke.

I've showed you all in this thread that other countries, even whiter than this one, have laws against hate speech on the books, and it's enforced. People aren't walking around on pins and needles wondering if they're going to get arrested for dressing up like 1980's Michael Jackson. I'm really wondering what the hesitation is. Is it that difficult to legislate even the slightest bit of decency in America?

So what's your stance on the Nation of Islam and their doctrine?

The fact that you feel the need to ask me this question, I'm guessing this is some kind of gotcha, shows that this conversation isn't suitable for you. Maybe listen more. If it wasn't so basic, essentially asking me about anti-Semitism, I'd be offended.

It's not just anti-Semitism. It's also their promotion of racial segregation, anti-LGBT, and black supremacy. But I can understand why you'd want to dodge this question considering your viewpoints on free speech would have all these black people thrown into jail.

Yes, because my views on LGBT rights and segregation are within question for anyone who've read more than three of any message board post I've ever had. What the eff is your point? Did I say that black people can't be racist or have abhorrent views? eff outta here with this stupidity.

You're actually too stupid to understand that you don't nor should get thrown in jail for everything that's illegal. Go rough ridin' read a book and stop making this conversation dumber.

It wasn't a gotcha question. I seriously wanted to see these mental gymnastics. Instead he just threw a tantrum.

I asked you two different questions, dipshit. Don't worry about it, you're no different than cat27, I'm not going to bother with having conversations with people acting in bad faith.

Other than getting confused and thinking that the athletes can just write individual messages on their jerseys, KSO is being surprisingly measured about this.
