People should always be able to say whatever they want, no matter how misguided or hateful. That's America.

If we do, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton will be out of jobs.

Kobe and KG would be in jail too.

This law will probably prohibit Turkey from becoming part of the European Union.

Agreed. A lot of people always say 'I've got free speech I can say whatever I want" but they never actually stop to think about the consequences.

Did any of you even read the article?

This is good since it will allow Europe to crack down on radical imams that are preaching hatred and death towards the infidels. I can see it being "bad", but so long as it is only used against those who are inciting violence, I don't see the problem.

And everyone in America has the right to bear arms. Perhaps, not everything in America is great and could be changed. I mean, no one in Europe gets imprisoned for saying sth. racist, but when you do it in public in order to create hate and put his listerners up to commit crimes then I can proudly say: Freedom of speech my ass.
