walktoanarcade: jehovahs witness protection: Removal of gun rights leads to removal of free speech.They have nothing to do with each other.Loss of free speech comes purely by the masses staying quiet while a loud outspoken minority of speech-haters dictate what is and what is not acceptable and allowed to be said in public spaces.If some guy is open-carrying and comes near a crowd of oppressed people (speech-wise), his weapon is not going to magically allow them to break fascist rules laid down by police or any city.Really? Guns protect speech?LOL!!!!!
Deacon Blue: bekovich: Where else can I post ineffectual comments that no one reads? :(Buy a journal and write it out longhand. Seems to be the only way not to get jailed.
rjakobi: It is the constitutional right of every person, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or creed, to be offended by those more ignorant of them. If getting offended by idiots makes you stop everything and whine about how you are unjustly persecuted due to stupid stereotypes, you waste time better used to study why these stereotypes exist in the first place. The strong push for political correctness and anti-bullying legislation are the last gasp of an older generation too ashamed to admit that their faults are just as bad as the establishment that preceded them. You cannot undo centuries of intolerance by simply making it "impolite" to broach subjects of social and international equality. The idiot doesn't care who they offend with their feeble rhetoric. Why should you?
abhorrent1: Reddit is better anyway. Fark just laps up their leftovers
walktoanarcade: Wow. I had to re-read several parts of your story because it was amusing. The part I'm highlighting gives me the chills. I mean, it's good that the guy didn't try to reach for his weapon or touch it. Yikes.As for the military and the media, I really don't have enough information to say much except, "farkin shait" is my reaction to the news I'm hearing from you.I can tell you that IF it's a problem where I'm at, it's quiet as well.
bekovich: Where else can I post ineffectual comments that no one reads? :(
Frank N Stein: Yeah, and continued expanded under Obama.
Caffeine Induced Diarrhea: Whatchoo Talkinbout: Fark Britain. Twice.Dont you mean bugger?
walktoanarcade: HST's Dead Carcass: Again, I can't really point to online resources about the stuff, because it was kept under wraps really tight, but here's a Rolling Stone article on what we went through out here, and why it's kept so hush-hush now.All right, I read all six pages carefully...and I wish I hadn't in a way. Never have I gasped so much through one story.Glad that woman survived, but damnit to farking shiat those guys should all be put down like dogs. No remorse, and I suspect the guy in prison is lying-of course he participated.*I* feel traumatized just reading that! o_0Thanks for cluing me in, though. I knew we had a problem, but I never knew it was so extreme.

TwowheelinTim: TheWhoppah: Britain is a backwards land where the citizens are "subjects of the crown" and freedom of speech and the press are limited to topics that do not upset the ruling class.This was not inciting a riot or any such thing, that man was jailed for offensive speech.English are too stupid to have a revolution of their own.Yeah. Stand down from drill. It's our crippled little sister across the Atlantic who is incarcerating her citizens for "offencive" language. It's still okay to be like that on this side of the pond.
generallyso: FTA Lawyer and legal blogger Lyndon Harris described Newsome's case as "a knee jerk reaction by the CPS" and told the Guardian the law is "failing miserably. At what point does unpleasant become criminal? You're just locking people up for saying nasty things. If someone said that to you in the pub and you went to the police, they'd tell you to go away."Seems to sum it up.
