Headso: The most unpleasant speech should be protected the most.


Unpleasant speech said with dynamic intent should be protected. This woman went out of her way trying to upset people, and is an @sshole. I hope her son grows to hate her in later life.

That having been said, she should have been arrested and charged with a bomb threat.

'Jihad' is a relatively common name, but for anyone to wear a shirt like that is stupid AW trolling.

Yerp. Funny how the country she apparently hates the most is the one that has what she needs the most... protection of free speech and against double jeopardy, eh?

Elroydb: The only crime she should be charged with is reckless endangerment of a minor. People whose lives were personally affected by the terrorist attacks might not be able to control their emotions when encountered with that even on a kid

At any rate if someone slugged her in the face for doing that with her son I don't think any court would convict them. There's trolling and then there's provoking potential violence


I'm always confused by the goodies who think violence is acceptable when THEY are offended, but fark everyone else. For all we know, this woman had a husband/brother/son/cousin killed some time during the last decade while our troops were blowing up the Middle East. She has to have some pretty strong anti-US feelings to put that kind of shirt on a kid. But naw, I'm sure it has nothing to do with the US demonization of Muslims since 9/11. She just had that shirt made because she's a freedom-hating troll. Keeing things really simple like this makes it easy for me.

Koalaesq: Europe ain't perfect and they sorely need a version of the 1st amendment


They do. Their version just doesn't protect hate-mongering idiots or scientologists.

Also, loudly proclaim you're going to shoot the next cop you see and see what happens.

muck4doo: Where are the usual idiots who derp that we need to be more like Europe?


How about this? The French wisely ban giving children offensive names. In the US you can name a boy "Susan" if you like and he'll be tragically ruined for life as the boy named Sue. Untold numbers of children have ridiculous names or common names that are spelled in some far-fetched way because their stupid parents wanted to be "original" or fashionable. You even let people name their children after idiot celebrities such as Britney Spears. If you name a child "Cindi", she will spell her name with a heart instead of a dot over the "i" and thus become a stripper with a heart of gold. It's cruel and unusual punishment to name a child with the wrong name. Read Tristram Shandy.

Names influence your life chances. If I lived in the UK, I might be named Alf or something equally stupid and what chance would I have? Might as well become a TF from the get-go.

There are stupid individuals in Europe, even stupid laws and customs, political parties, religions, etc., but Europe is not inherently stupid per se. The French, in particular, tend to think things through. In the USA, there are plenty of smart, good and wise people, but you have a "Florida" tag and could just as easily have one for each state and territory, including "Puerto Rico" on account of mass or official stupidity. The same is true of Canada. We could easily have an Alberta tag or a Quebec tag.

Poor little Jihad is going to have problems when he goes to school. He'd be better off named Jim or Bambi but I assume those names are both illegal in France and a good thing too.

You should hear how the French pronounce some English names.

If the kid was named Jim it would be pronounced the way it is pronounced by the cast of the British radio  Goon Show of the 1950s. Jeeeeem!

Yeah, right here. Europe ain't perfect and they sorely need a version of the 1st amendment but in most other humanitarian areas... health care, family leave... they make us look like backwards asshats

Seriously?  No, seriously, seriously?  Does it have another "meaning" as a name, or are they essentially named "Holy War".

Completely serious - never heard that it was ever used as a name.


Jihad doesn't necessarily mean war or violence. Overcoming alcoholism could be considered jihad. I think it just means "struggle".

Obviously this nutjob means violence, though.

They must be referring to the bombs planted in the towers for demolition.

I've read a distressing number of arguments for dialing back spelling and grammar training in education, because "spelling / grammar check will take care of it anyway."

The rate at which we're becoming Wall-E is alarming.

If it was the mother wearing the T-shirt I could understand your comment...but a 3 year old most likely didn't choose to wear it nor understand the meaning behind it.

Millennium: Antimatter: Hold on, she was acquitted, the court appealed, and then was convicted?

This didn't happen in the US. Different countries have different rules about things like double-jeopardy.

Ahem. I can't say I agree with this ruling. The mom's an asshat, no doubt about it, but being an asshat should not be a crime. A baby in a onesie might have been another matter: babies don't move around very much, so the possibility that you might actually be dealing with some scary stuff disguised as a baby is at least credible. But three-year-olds walk and talk and interact in ways that disguised ordnance simply does not.

There was no credible threat here. There should be no crime. Let her face all the derision and scorn that asshats deserve, but fines? Prison sentences, even if suspended? No.


Europe's becoming more and more aware of being on the 'front line.' More and more aware that their very cultural identities are under threat. Expect to see more backlash like this in the coming years.
