Now THERE'S an interesting double standard.


Hey, kids ... remember when, in George Bush's America, you could get arrested for, say, wearing the wrong kind of T-shirt? Or putting the wrong kind of bumper sticker on your car?

And yet, amazingly, this guy is still going strong. Go figure.

Perhaps this guy ought to remember that radio DJ in Rwanda have been convicted of war crimes for advocating murder.....

But Mike, he never advocated "Murder", he uses weasel pgrases like "I may have to" and so on, he can't be held responcible if some idiot reads his remarks and doesn't understand the very suttle difference that the law sees and then goes out and blow off someone's head.

PS, if you buy this arguement, I have lovely sea-side vacation property in Alberta to sell you too.

Uh, that second story about the bumper sticker is a satirical piece, you dumbass.

Scott from Winnipeg said...

Heh. You're right, good catch.

Perhaps you can think of it this way... it's a fable that imparts a message. Although it didn't really happen, the message is no less real, or pertinent. You know, like the bible.

Or if you're not into allegory (or don't understand it), how about these ones... dumb ass.

Look, everyone! Dan Rather reads this blog! Hi, Dan!

"Fake, but accurate" - the left's defense when caught red-handed propagating fake news stories.

Incidentally, how exactly do those articles you linked to help your side? The "victims" are all unhinged nutcases. Are they really the type of people you want as your side's public face?

BTW, that headline about the nurse being arrested is, of course, false. She was issued a ticket, not arrested. More "fake, but accurate" stories, I suppose.

I'll leave the "unhinged nutcase" diagnosis to you, since you seem to be the expert. But don't even unhinged nutcases have a right to free speech?

"Your side"? Wtf?
