    I kind of want to change the caption under my avatar to "Prophet Muhammad" but I don't want this site getting blown up

    People are already coming out of the woodwork trying to figure out ways to charge "Sam Bacile" with an actual crime. It's alarming to see how many people -American people, even- who are proclaiming that not all speech is free..or should be.

    http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion...lims-first-amendment-20120918,0,3112718.story

    People are calling "Bacile" and "Charlie Hebdo" writers instigators, provocateurs and generally irresponsible people. They may be right, but the thought of non-violent expression being regulated or even prosecuted because of the actions of the ignorant, violent and irrational mobs cannot take hold. When we surrender our rights due to fear, we no longer deserve to have them. The non-violent ones shouldn't be the ones expected to buckle. We live in a truly twisted world when that philosophy becomes normalized. Thankfully we're not there yet.

    We're moving there. The UN keeps passes non-binding resolutions to "protect" Muslims from offense and eventually they'll manage to squeeze through a binding one.

    Oh and it is already here under the guise of "hate crime" legislation.

    This will be interesting to watch.

    I wonder what if South Park does and episode on this. It's right up their alley and they do some of the best satire around

    Hate crime legislation doesn't involve opinions or speech not accompanied by actions. Hate crime legislation is retarded, but at least there's still some sanity.
    If I want to tell the world that I hate A group of lovely people and believe that the holocaust never happened, it's still my right. We're not Canada or Europe yet!

    And for the record, no, I don't believe that the holocaust never happened.

    Yet..... hate crime laws are a foothold but attempts will be made to expand it into the realm of non action.

    People need to remember that these fucktards are overreacting to a cheesy, 14 minute Youtube video. We should't apologize for our freedoms to anyone.

    So what you are saying is we'll be bailing the French's ass outta the fire in a few months when the arabs invade and they roll over?

    This sounded like some kind of Ron Paul fever-dream bullshit, so I looked it up. And from the resolution I read (62/154), you were right on the money. So, good call, Sleeping Warrior; I apologize for doubting you.

    And *that's* why you should always do your own research.

    people who are calling for his prosecution are the usual liberal nuts who when the catholics objected to "piss christ" laughed and said art and free speech are protected. those dangerous catholics rioted and set fire to cars and buildings. it seems that liberals/progressives are strangely silent about islamicists who not only hate gays and women, but want to convert all of us infidels. fuck islam....i had a harrowing situation with islamic yoots when i was in southern france a few years ago...even before they became as emboldened as they are now.

    Put the French Foreign Legion on their asses! Oh wait, yeah, that really didn't work out too well the last time (Algeria '62). That conflict almost brought down the Fifth Republic!

    Either way, the FFL pwn3d the insurgents in the field, and the terrorists would surely faint in fear at the sight of the FFL's massive epaulets and blue cummerbunds!

    The French are also the only ones who banned burka's from the streets. Pretty fucking cool if you ask me.

    I don't like the French in general, but Sarkozy is a cool little dude, he doesn't take shit.

    The French will surrender before the first edition hits the newsstands.
